Beautiful house that was everything we were looking for!

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for our girl’s weekend getaway! It slept everyone perfectly and comfortably. The large screened in porch created such a serene setting. The house sits pretty far in the neighborhood down some long, winding roads, but I think that adds to the appeal of getting away from the hustle and bustle.

The hot tub was a great way for us to wind down in the evening! Everything was beautifully decorated and very clean. Jennifer was very helpful and super nice! Great to work with!

I highly recommend this house for a romantic weekend getaway or a fun and relaxing time with the girls!

We enjoyed the screen porch with the hammock and the hot tub was very nice, new, clean and relaxing after long days. We loved the decor of the house. It is was welcoming and very charming. The owners were very responsive to any questions and pleasant to rent from.

We had an awesome time at the cabin. We loved the layout of the house and the hot tub was a big hit with our kids. The location to the swim club and the marina are good. The back porch makes you feel like you are sitting in a treehouse! We will definitely be back!

Beautiful cabin

  • 4 of 5

This cabin is very beautiful and furnished to meet all of your needs for a weekend. It was furnished in a very Pottery Barn like manner which I always love. The only downside is that we were were unable to use a hair dryer or other hair appliances in the master bathroom. Also, we were unable to work any of the televisions. We were unable to use the TV in the living room and only watch Netflix movies in the master bedroom. Although we were not there to watch television it would have been nice to turn on something late at night after a long day out and about. We did not find any instructions for the TVs. That would be my only recommendation. But all in all had a wonderful stay.

Owner's Response: Thank you Laura for the feedback- we appreciate it! We do have a tricky gfci in the bathroom, so we are checking that out for sure. We also need to update our tv instructions it would seem ; ). We do not have cable service but we do have amazon prime and all the smart tv options for different services so people can log in to their tv service accounts. Hope to have you back again- thanks for coming to stay.
