Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great stay! Richard and Heather were so sweet and accommodating. They really thought of everything when building this getaway! We spent all day outside, used the grill every night, and the kayaks were so much fun as well. We can't wait to come back! : ) I totally recommend this place!

Camping with conveniences!

  • 5 of 5

Let me start by saying we are not campers. We are an elderly retired couple who were looking for a few days of fishing in a natural environment. We got a lot more.

This cabin has both modern conveniences -- a refrigerator, A/C, real beds, gas grill --combined with that feeling of going back to a simpler time -- wood stove, front porch, sounds of birds, cicadas and frogs as background music. We found the whole experience refreshing and restorative. We rented the boat (with electric motor) and fished the whole private lake and cooked and ate our catch at night. The cast iron cookware was a nice touch, as was the beautiful wood shower outside. The "outhouse" is a flushing toilet, private and pristine.

This property is the realized vision of a creative couple who love the area and want to spread the joy. We found them engaging and hospitable, like meeting two new friends. We had a couple of minor snags the first night and Richard came immediately to fix them. (He built everything from scratch so he knew exactly what to do!)

I hope we can return in the fall. I'd like to try the wood stove and the outside fire pit!
