NOTE: THE HEADLINE SAYS $250 BUT IT IS FOR WEEKDAYS IN WINTER DATES OR ODD LOTS. FRIDAY AND SAT ARE CONSIDERED WEEKEND AND THOSE DAYS ARE $275-300 DEPENDING ON AVAILABILITY. SUMMER DATES ARE PRIME AND THOSE WE NORMALLY RENT WEEKLY FR SAT TO SAT.
RESERVATION: There is also a $100 booking fee via Paypal or Credit Card via phone
I end up using that 100$ money toward cleaning when you leave. IF for some reason, a renter decides to cancel, the 100$ end up helping toward the rent's loss due to cancellation and the headache involved holding date for you.
SO BASICALLY THE $100 deposit to hold your week will go toward cleaning if you stay and if you decide to cancel, you will forfeit the deposit.
$100 refundable security deposit DUE before or at same time as rental
TWO NONE DEMAND Payment Plan Up to 50% of rental is due 2 weeks from booking and balance due 2-3 weeks prior to arrival. YOu are responsible for initiating the payments. Failure to pay when due will release the date back to available. Text me if you need Paypal request or call you to take credit card.
Cancellation: 120 days advance notice for full refund. 30-119 cancel will receive credit TO exchange date, less than 30 days nonrefundable period.

To best describe our experience….
“This is The Life We Ordered”
My husband and I have been researching various options around the Midwest to take our extended family for a vacation and this place offers the entire package!
We are so glad we took the opportunity to visit and check this place out for a weekend. We feel as though we stumbled upon one of Iowa’s Best Kept Secrets in Vacation Spots.
The Log Home is Amazing – The views are Amazing – the feeling one gets to think about returning for future visits is amazing.

This home is a lovely place to spend time. The view is fantastic and the home welcoming. Our family, minus one son and plus one future daughter-in-law, spent a week laughing, eating, swimming and laughing. The pontoon was a great addition and there was lots of space in the house to spread out or congregate together. Thanks for letting us rent your beautiful home for our annual vacation!

SAMPLE REVIEWS: 'This place will take your breath away, one of the nicest places I have ever been. Lots of room on a rainy day for the kids to play inside if needed. Has everything you need for a week on a great lake, even the teenagers have a blast since they can still connect with friends via internet. If you have not booked a week here yet I would jump on it. I would give it 10 out of 10. Hope to go back very soon. '

THANK YOU. THANK YOU, THANK YOU!
This is a GORGEOUS house and the view is amazing! It was a much-needed weekend for relaxing. It was so peaceful and such a fun time with great friends! Las night the fire-pit was a great with childfree conversation. Thank you for a beautiful place to disconnect from life for a while.
