  • Short but fun

    "We arrived on Monday the 10th to meet the owner and get keys. There had been an issue with plumbing and pipes freezing (hard winter this year), but the owner had already found it and called out the plumber, the issue was resolved and we didn't notice any impact to our trip. The house was nice, everything we needed, patio was awesome, great place to hang out with a great view. Doc was nice, but he ducks (tis that season) had left a pretty good mess if you know what I mean. It needed to be power washed and I'm sure something they have to fight every year with the ducks coming in for the winter. We had to cut our trip short unfortunately but would definatly consider this house again for another trip."

    "Our stay at Lonesome Dove Retreat was all that we hoped for. The home was very clean, nicely decorated and very comfortable. If we ever visit the area in the future Lonesome Dove Retreat will be our first choice for accommodations."
