"This is our favorite home away from home! The peacefulness and tranquility of Zenadu's surroundings provide rest and relaxation. We especially enjoy the screened in porch for morning coffee and late night chats. The scenic walk to the beach was well worth it! Thanks for another amazing Sister Weekend!!"

"I went for a long weekend with my daughter. We had a wonderful time and enjoyed the comfort. The beach is just over the sand dune, just about in this back yard. It is quiet, inviting, the beds are very comfortable, it is decorated so nicely and the kitchen is very efficient. I spent every morning sitting on the back deck enjoying my coffee. The owner, Jurgita, is wonderful to work with."

Great for large group - lots of beds & HUGE grounds to roam
"We had barn house & farmhouse. Since we mostly had adults in the farmhouse, it was always quiet there. The farmhouse has all window air conditioners (that only worked so-so) & ceiling fans. The barnhouse has the kitchen & all the living and eating areas plus full bathrooms on the main floor & upstairs. The vast majority of the barnhouse is rough-hewn wooden beams which makes it virtually indestructible. Compared to other rentals where I worry the kids might damage something, the barnhouse was great for the kids to play and run with no worries. There was 1 queen bed in the laundry room behind the kitchen on the main floor. Upstairs were 3 private bedrooms (2 with queen beds and 1 with a queen and a twin). There was also a big dormitory-style bunk room with 8 bunks that worked well for filling up with kids. The upstairs also has lots of tables & seating. Mostly the kids used it for playing board & card games or sitting on the sofas to watch TV. There was also a long bar where we sat & talked one evening. Plus there was an area with a very long table & chairs. We didn’t eat there but did move them out to make a big open space for our square dance. Elk Ridge Ranch is quite isolated from neighbors which made it nice so we could be as noisy as we wanted and not worry that we were bothering anyone. Also it was comforting to know the kids could run all around and there were no busy streets or hazards like a swimming pool. There is no place for bigger kids to ride bikes or skooters since all the driving surfaces are gravel - though small kids can ride trikes on the sidewalk. The wifi doesn’t always work; comes and goes. Adults enjoyed walking over to golf & to fish on the grounds. We also had a lot of fun sitting on the wooden benches around bonfires in a giant wire basket. We paid Dave, the owner, to take all of us on a hay ride. It was fun & he let the kids take turns helping him drive the tractor. They loved that. Our group also enjoyed going to the pioneer village at Spring Mill State Park, Holiday World Amusement & Water Park, deluxe golfing at Sultan’s Run, the French Lick casino, and swimming at a beach at Patoka Lake. We were lucky the big Stassenfest Festival was going on in Jasper when we were there. There were more things in the area that we wanted to do but ran out of time so will have to wait for our return to Elk Ridge Ranch."

"My wife and I have vacationed at lake cottages throughout the country. Carol and Estil's place is among the very best. Their cottage is very clean, comfortable and cozy. Its quiet and peaceful. There is great fishing just a few steps from the front door. The owners are there to assist in any way possible but they respect your privacy. I just can't say enough how warm and helpful Carol and Estil were to us. They are wonderful people. The pleasant memories of our experience at their cottage will be with us for a long time.
Treat yourself to some well earned relaxation......reserve the cottage. You will love it!"
