Winter Family Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed at the Wolves Den and it was absolutely wonderful. There were 11 of us and there was MORE than enough room for everyone to spread out and not be on top of each other. The gorgeous huge island was defiantly where much of the hanging out happened. Also, the giant table was so nice to be able to have all of fit around it. The real wood burning fireplace made our winter retreat so cozy and warm. The house was immaculately clean and offered everything we needed (minus a cookie sheet to bake our cookies with lol no biggie) but offered toiletries, make up wipes(a nice touch), and paper products. Jon was very prompt on all of his correspondence, answering every question I had. The house was labeled very well with instructions on using everything. If I had any suggestions, it would be to include on the website that the 2nd bedroom upstairs can only be accessed by going thru the master bedroom. If it was stated on the VRBO site, I missed it. It wasn't an issue at all for our group, but defiantly worth noting for other groups. I would 100% recommend this house for rental and I hope our group makes it back here again!!!

Fantastic Family Vacation Over Thanksgiving

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful family Thanksgiving weekend at The Wolves Den. It was perfect for the ten of us, including three younger children. The four bedrooms and the loft worked out great and we loved being able to have a large enough table to have all ten of us sitting at one table for dinner. The view from the family room is fantastic!! The home is very nicely decorated, has very nice ameneties and has a great floor plan for extended family. The kitchen is very well supplied and made cooking for ten easy. We enjoyed the fireplace a couple of evenings and our sons had a chance to do a bit of fishing.

Jon and Jim were wonderful to work with regarding our trip and responded quickly to any e-mails that we sent. They made the process easy - especially since this was our first VRBO experience.

We would gladly go back again for another vacation!!

Thank you Jon & Jim

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

A group of 12 friends and I stayed at this house for the weekend. It was perfect for what we needed. Everything was very clean and organized and check in and check out instructions were easy to follow. We didn't use the lake or boat since we went in November but the view of the lake is gorgeous. Sleeping arrangements worked out fine for us and everyone had a bed. The house had tons of space and seating for everyone. It never felt crowded even with so many of us there. Kitchen was nice and fully stocked. There's ample parking in the huge garage and in the driveway. If I had to say one con it would be that the water had the "well water smell" to it but that is usually expected at some place like this and I imagine it was because no one had been there right before us. It didn't affect anything we did and wasn't a big deal to us though. Great place and I would definitely rent it again in the future! Thanks!!!

Impressive Lakefront Home & Stay

  • 5 of 5

The quality of this home is second to none. The accommodations and atmosphere is one of a kind and was enjoyed by everyone in our group. Our party had 14 guests (4 adults and 10 children) and we were extremely comfortable. The house provides multiple living spaces that allowed all of us to be together or spread out when desired. The views or the serene lake are breathtaking and we can't wait to stay here in the summer to take advantage of everything this lake offers. Jon & Jim, the new owners, were extremely helpful, quick to respond and accommodating during the booking of our stay and during our stay. We will definitely be back in the future and will highly recommend to our family and friends. Thanks for a great long weekend. We made some memories of a lifetime and can't wait to come back.

Had a Great Week in this Beautiful Home!

  • 5 of 5

We had a very relaxing week in this beautiful home! The house is just gorgeous, with a wide open design, huge windows and views of the lake from almost everywhere including the large deck. We brought kayaks and had fun paddling around almost every day. Even with the great weather that graced our time here, the lake was very quiet. Fishing was good from the dock and from kayaks. We made a couple trips to Harbor country, did a few wine tastings, and really enjoyed having "Paradise" as our home base after a busy day of vacationing.
