Plenty of Space Close to the Water

  • 5 of 5

We loved our experience at the cabin! Suzanne and Peter were very responsive and addressed all of my questions in a timely manner.

The hot tub, space and location were all perfect for a weekend in the Lake Monroe area! I will say to bring your own trash bags and toilet paper, as we ran out of those rather quickly! :)

Great family lake weekend

  • 4 of 5

The cabin met all our expectations, clean comfortable and roomy with the game room. Driveway needs improvement, was difficult to locate and back boat trailer in because trees are overgrown.

Birthday surprise weekend

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was a great place to take my wife for a surprise birthday weekend. The cabin was clean and had everything that you would need. The hot tub was great and the covered gazebo was perfect to keep some of the light drizzle out. The pool table, darts and board games gave us some extra activities to enjoy as well. We took the kayaks out on the lake and had a blast! It literally is less than a mile from the cabin. An absolute awesome weekend. Communication was quick and detailed. Great time was had.

Keeps getting better

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time using Back to Nature and it was just as great as the first time! The house was clean a cool, which was much appreciated due to the crazy heat. Though we didn't use all the features of the cabin, it was nice to have the options. They had kayaks, hot tub, fire pit, billiards room, and more. It was so close to the lake, which is so hard to find something like this so close! My family stopped by and they were ready to go on another vaca using Back to Nature! I love it that they recommended grocery stores and restaurants, it made it easy! Thanks for your hospitality! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

More instructions for the hot tub and more efficient lighting in the master bath would be helpful. The air conditioning and bedroom size with the walkout porch the master were awesome.
