About Lisa Martin

My name is Lisa Martin & my husband is Merv.

My husband works for his brother in a tire shop & I am a secretary at a private school nearby.

We both love old log cabins & peaceful settings.

It had been a dream of ours to restore a old log cabin.

We built this cabin to rent out & share with others.

The cabin was orginally from Manhiem. We numbered the logs tore it down & moved them to this property. My husband & son built the cabin & set it back up. Every minute of spare time they had they worked on it. It took around 1 year to complete. We would love you to come & stay!

Lisa Martin purchased this cabin in 2010

Why Lisa Martin chose Dutch Country

This is an awesome place to enjoy the woods and nature. It is peaceful & secluded. It is the perfect place for a restored old log cabin.

What makes this cabin unique

We enjoy the solitude & wildlife while staying at the cabin. It is a great place to unwind! Enjoy sitting on the rocking chairs on the front porch overlooking the pond. Listen to the birds, watch for the deer, in the spring listen to the peepers.

Guestbook comments from the owner

THANK YOU!!!

We were so lucky to uncover this treasure in the woods - a perfect spot full of charm & peace. Getting away to just enjoy some solitude together was made all the more memorable because of this idyllic setting. We had fun exploring the local antique shops & enjoying just exploring the countryside - roaming free, happening upon a covered bridge or a small country store, sitting on the deck in the rockers as dusk turned to night - or in the morning as we enjoyed our coffee - we loved to be so one with nature - birds chirping, frogs croaking, lightening bugs flickering. I'm sure we will come back - would love to see it in winter & take in all the natural beauty, rest & relaxation this place has to offer.

Lovely Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We are so happy with our decision to stay in this cabin! My husband and I stayed here for a few days after our wedding, and it was perfect! We loved sitting outside in the big rocking chairs overlooking the pond! The cabin is very clean and feels very cozy. Lisa was extremely accommodating and allowed us to bring our dogs and even drop off a car before check-in time so that we had a way of getting around once we were dropped off at the house after the wedding. We can't wait to return in the future and we would recommend it to anyone looking for a relaxing getaway.

Perfect Quiet Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a quiet getaway and this certainly filled the bill! Lisa was the perfect hostess. The cabin was set up to welcome us with candle light, soft music and a chilled sparkling drink. The hot tub was a welcome treat after a day of antiquing. The daily visits from the yellow cat made it all feel like home! We are definitely looking forward to another stay. Doug and Carol

Great Cabin! Rustic + all the modern amenities

  • 5 of 5

The little cabin was perfect! It had all the charm we wanted yet had the modern amenities to make it comfortable. We also loved the cabin cat (who we affectionately named Cheddar) that hung out on the porch during the day. It was a great, relaxing weekend getaway!
