"We spent a very relaxing and fun week with our grown children and 3 grandsons. It is a home away from home! The house is everything we expected, there is plenty of room for all of us. The view was wonderful...there was an eagle's nest with babies right by the house! The grandkids loved fishing right off the dock and the loons were very entertaining. They really loved the paddle boat and kayak that were provided!
We fished just about every day and went into Hayward to visit the Muskie Museum. The kids really liked the Lumberjack show, too! We ate most of our meals at the house but did enjoy pizza at Coop's one evening. The shops downtown are neat, too, and Hookstone Winery was fun. It is a short drive into town.
I will definately recommend this property to family and friends. It is a good location to meet as we were coming from different directions and wanted to find someplace in the middle."

"10 of us stayed for along weekend. It was better than we had anticipated. Wonderful home, fully equipped,beautiful surroundings. We wish there was more to do (hiking, adventure, etc) around the area, it is quite far from any of those activities, but a great place to stay with a larger group. Difficult to figure out the sound system, movie system, and TV as instructions are not provided, but we got most of it to work. No WiFi, so no need to bring computers for internet access unless that is changed from today's date. Very appreciative of the space and the home to use! We will rent again and perhaps take on a time when the weather will permit use of the lake too! THANKS!"

"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!"

"Our experience was wonderful on Moose Lake! The cabin was beautiful and the location was great! Very clean and was nice to bring our pet along. The lake was down because they were working on the Dam. Made it a little difficult getting around on the lake without knowing the structure and boat launches were a challenge, but still had an awesome time. Would love to try it again next year! Thanks for a great getaway. :)"
