Great property for hosting family

  • 4 of 5

We rented the house for family members to stay at during a family event. The house has multiple living spaces, roomy bedrooms, And a beautiful yard. We hosted a lunch in the yard and took family pictures amongst the gorgeous trees overlooking a valley. Would definitely recommend.

Great for disc golf enthusiasts

  • 5 of 5

Great location, private and lots of space for outdoor activities. The grass field has been cut to accommodate a small disc golf course which we took advantage of. The house had more than enough space for 6 adults. Kitchen was well equipped and clean. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place as the owners was very easy to deal with and we'll probably be back.

Wonderful country property

  • 4 of 5

We rented this lovely home for a week in early June. The location is fantastic! The house has everything you could want for a comfortable stay. The house is super clean and well maintained. The kids loved the games in the quonset hut (pool table, etc), as well as the video games in the house. We also enjoyed the path along the coulee (bring bug spray!). The beds are quite comfortable (although the bedrooms could use some darker curtains/window coverings, since it doesn't get dark until very late at night in the summer that far north). The owner is very nice and accommodating if you should need anything during your stay. I would definitely rent this property again.

Enjoyable stay at historic home

  • 4 of 5

We had a delightful weekend stay in this clean, well-kept heritage home. Lots of provisions, you just need to bring your food. Comfortable beds and a great kitchen. Some extras have been thought of eg. patio, picnic tables, fire-pit, all overlooking the coulee. We recommend it!
