VRBO is part of the HomeAway family, the world leader in vacation rentals. We offer the largest selection of properties for any travel occasion and every budget. We’re committed to helping families and friends find a perfect vacation rental to create unforgettable travel experiences together.
Our week at the lodge wasn’t nearly enough time. The property is beautiful for long hikes around the ponds and there are turtles, birds and deer everywhere. The lodge is comfy with all of the lake lodge decor and very cozy. The large front and back decks are wonderful for watching the wildlife, including the spiders and wasps, and just relaxing and visiting with family.
This was the perfect place to get away from the everyday, including the phone and internet, and enjoying the great outdoors and time with loved ones.
We look forward to returning soon!
Thank you for sharing your beautiful lodge with us!

The family (15 people, ages 7-67) returned to Rod's cabin on the lake. We have been anticipating a return since our initial visit last year. Although the space fits our family well, we were disappointed to discover that the cleaning crew had not been at the property since the last tenants vacated. I wish I had called Rod on Friday when we discovered this, but I called him on Monday before I left instead. He told me he would have sent the crew out to rectify the situation ASAP if I had. (Instead, my sisters and I just pitched in and took care of the problem.) He was very apologetic as well. We love, love, love this place...and I am sure we will probably return, but some of the recommended repairs and maintenance had not been completed. Some had. The bridge had been repaired, but the ladders on the docks were still both loose (one even fell off while we were there). I think that Rod trusts his crew to get the job done...and they don't always do that. We had a great time, but the lack of clean linens, full trash cans, dirty dishes, and lots of spider webs, wasp nests, and bird nests populating the outside areas really put a damper in our trip. As I said, we will probably be back; we have too much fun not to go back. But some serious maintenance, especially outdoors, is needed for this rental. This property is a one of a kind place; I hope in the next year that it gets the attention it deserves.

My partner and I have been renting this cabin at least one weekend per month for the last 5 years for spiritual retreats. We love it! There's space, indoor and outdoor, for anything you can think of. We love the privacy. The cabin has always been cleaned prior to our arrival - the exterior is always neat and tidy. We are always blessed to see a variety of wildlife, deer, great horned owls, hawks, turtles, etc. Because the cabin is in the country and not lived in 24/7 we expect that periodically there will be maintenance and wildlife issues that come up. ANYTIME, we have ever had any issues, Rod is quick to take care of any maintenance issues. It is obvious that Rod loves the property and takes pride in how it looks. We use both, the main house and the bunkhouse every weekend that we rent the property. Our students love it! We may never leave Rod! Thanks for 5 wonderful years and many more to come!

We booked the house several months ago but when we go there the ac was not on and the house was 89. I was 102 that weelend so we were all very hot. We arrived at 12:00 and we tried to set the ac but it wpould not work. We called the owner and he said he would try to get someone out there to fix it. At 5:00 the owner called and said evebody was booked up but he was working on getting somone out there. He finally overed us the use of the bunk house because the ac was working over there. The air finally got fixed by about 8:30 so we could go back in the main house to sleep. The propery was full of wasps and spiders. I feel that if you are going to rent the property you sjould make sure it is ready. I have MS and it was very hard on me and all the girls to be in a house for so long without air. The place is beautiful but they need to get it ready when it is to be rented. We were not offered a discount or anthing.
