                Our stay was absolutely perfect - the most relaxing time I've had in years! The Christmas lights were the icing on the cake. We will for sure be back! Thank you for your warm hospitality!

                My girlfriend and I spent a long weekend here. We were looking to get away from the stresses of our everyday lives, and just relax. We couldn't have picked a better place. The little touches, and attention to detail made this an excellent weekend getaway. I've had several friends request info for the cabin, and they plan on staying. I can't say enough good things about it. We had an excellent time, and we will be back. Kudos to Merv and Lisa!

                Such an adorable cabin! Perfect for a couple looking to get away and just enjoy each others company and nature. Walked through the door to hear beautiful music playing and sparkling juice and chocolates waiting for us by the bed. And it is decorated perfectly! Keep in mind, there are minimal kitchen utensil if you plan on cooking. No sharp knives (cutting raw potatoes with a butter knife can be a bit of a challenge). Or serving/mixing bowls. I had to mix my pancake batter in a pot. Also, it is a charcoal grill and I could not find any charcoal in the cabin...so perhaps it is not provided; remember to bring your own if you like to grill. And be sure to warm up the hot tub an hour or two before you plan on climbing in.

                Owner response: We want to apologize for the hot tub needing to be warmed. We usually keep it set around 98 degrees give or take. It must have been overlooked during the cleaning. Since this response we have added sharp knives for cutting & also large mixing bowls. As for charcoal & lighter, you need to provide that yourself. We like any suggestions you may have to improve your stay, so please let us know what we can do to better it. We want to work hard to please our customers!

                I planned the trip to the cabin as a surprise for my husband. He only knew we were going away for 2 nights without our kids :) We were both amazed at how intimate and rustic the cabin was. No detail was missed, from the fireplace to the fresh flowers on the table. The king sized bed was so comfortable and presented in such a romantic way. We enjoyed fishing and relaxing in the hot tub. The cabin is just the right distance from local farm markets as well. We will definitely be returning, perhaps for our 20th wedding anniversay in September. Thanks so much !

                From the moment we spotted the cabin as we pulled up to the driveway it took our breath away. It was exactly what we were looking for. The decor was so simple and pretty. I felt like I was in a scene from Janette Oke's Love Comes Softly but with modern touches. We didn't want to leave. Can't wait to come back. Thank you Merv and Lisa.

                Lisa & Merv, thanks for once again providing a marvelous cabin for us to stay at, enjoy the beauty all around us and unwind. The chocolates and the sparkling red/grape juice is always a great touch and sets the mood right away. Being able to park in the field and the nice ramp made getting in and out of the cabin a breeze in the wheelchair. We were even able to get some fishing in on Friday evening and caught 2 Bass and over 20 large Bluegill in about an hour’s time. Had a Blast !! Thanks, Ron & Laura

                This cabin was more than what we expected. Modern conveniences were wonderful, but still did not take away from the 1800's charm. This will be one of many trips we will make to Narvon and our children cannot wait to see this wonderful get away too. It is places like this that building strong family memories. Thank you again and we look forward to seeing you again soon.

                We stayed a week to celebrate our 10th anniversary. Everything was perfect, you can tell that the Martins take great pride in their property by the way they keep it and the extra little nice touches to make a stay special. The hot tub is an absolute bonus after being out during the day, and having quality time on the porch at night is great as well. Just sitting listening to crickets and croakers with the occasional sighting of a groundhog or rabbit is serene. It is close to everything, but far enough away to be quiet and relaxing. The pictures are accurate, but really don't do the cabin justice in showing the intimacy and rustic feel it possesses, along with the spotless cleanliness. Thanks again to the Martins for letting us stay for the week. We will definitely be back if in that area in the future!

                My wife and I stayed for two nights and although we arrived in a down pour, we immediately began to feel the weight of the world lift. Sitting on the porch with the rain falling was so peaceful and the way the cabin has been restored is amazing. Modern conveniences yet retaining all the rustic charm of the original cabin. The hot tub was just what we needed after the chilly rain and an afternoon of walking in Lancaster. We will most assuredly be back again.

              About the owner: My name is Lisa Martin & my husband is Merv. My husband & I both grew up in Lancaster County. We both love old log cabins & peaceful settings. It had been a dream of ours to restore a old log cabin. We built this cabin to rent out & share with others. The cabin was orginally from Manhiem. We numbered the logs tore it down & moved them to this property. My husband & son built the cabin & set it back up. Every minute of spare time they had they worked on it. It took around 1 year to complete. We would love you to come & stay!

              Why the Owner Chose Narvon:
              This is an awesome place to enjoy the woods and nature. It is peaceful & secluded. We thought it would be the perfect place for a restored old log cabin.

              The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
              We enjoy the solitude & wildlife while staying at the cabin. It is a great place to unwind! Enjoy sitting on the rocking chairs on the front porch overlooking the pond. Listen to the birds, watch for the deer, in the spring listen to the peepers.
