"My husband and I rented this cabin to get away from Chicago and celebrate our 2nd Anniversary. What an amazing place!! The serenity is beyond words. Waking up to the sun shining in off the water, relaxing with a cup of coffee in the gorgeous screened in deck, taking the canoe to the islands, fishing off the dock, sitting by the campfire at night...everything was just amazing and RELAXING!!! (And our pups loved it too!) We already want to go back. Thank you Fred!!"

"We had a wonderful family vacation, the home is very well constructed with solid doors so we didn't wake other family members. Lake beautiful and very clear, pontoon ran beautifully, only thing we did not realize no beach to sit on and watch little ones play in water."

"My husband and I stayed at the Farmhouse Retreat during our weekend stay for the Spooner Rodeo.
We have stayed at several VRBO rentals before and we both agreed that we have been most impressed with the Farmhouse Retreat! Diane and Richard met us at the house upon arrival. This is the FIRST time anyone has ever actually met us at the property. We found this very welcoming and also gave us a little more sense of comfort as they showed us where everything was, instructions, and recommendations for eating out,etc even though all this information was typed out in a binder! They are extremely genuine and friendly. We loved how much family history was in the house and can feel how much they value family.
As many others have written on their reviews, pictures do NOT do justice to the farmhouse! It is VERY clean and tastefully decorated. There is just about EVERYTHING you can think of in the kitchen (even things we do not have at our own house!) plenty of towels in the bathroom, linens are provided, comfortable beds, blankets, you name it, its there. This gave us that "at home" feel. We loved eating our meals out on the patio/picnic table and just sitting outside to watch the birds/enjoy the peace and quiet. We HIGHLY recommend the Farmhouse Retreat. You will not find a gem like this, for the price anywhere else.
Thank you, Diane & Richard, for sharing your farmhouse for our Spooner Rodeo weekend! We will be back!"

"Great place for what we needed. Plenty of room and bathrooms. Nice, quiet and private location on dirt road. Enough in the kitchen for our cooking needs. Didn't realize no cable tv (had a rain day) but the owners have enough dvd's to keep us entertained. We came early in the season, which we knew, so some town stores were not yet open. But no crowds! Highly recommend the Apostle Island Cruise and Maggie's restaurant in Bayfield. FYI - cell service iffy and no house phone. Would consider renting this property again. Appreciate that they allowed our pets!"
