Excellent Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful house. Each room has it's own character and fun decoration. House has lots of big windows so almost feel like you are outside camping. We were here with our 7month old baby. We had a great time playing in the house and walking to the lake. It's also very close to a apple picking place. This is a excellent weekend getaway place!!

Serene getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our family with three adult children stayed at Dacha for a week this fall and found the house to be delightful and well-appointed. The attention to detail in the decorating, high end appliances and upgrades of this house are not typical of a rental. The setting is quiet and peaceful. Short walk to the beach, which unfortunately this year was very narrow because of the high water level. We enjoyed our stay and will recommend it to others.

perfect retreat

  • 5 of 5

This home is beautiful, the owners have taken great care into making sure each room is comfortable, and relaxing whether young or old. We are a family of six, and each person found an area where they could relax but had stayed earlier in the year for a family gathering and it accommodated three families comfortably. Just a short walk to the beach....perfect place to stay no matter the season! Highly recommended, well worth it.

Beautiful House

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house! It felt like home! Wonderful amenities throughout the house especially the kitchen. Gorgeous master and bath. Movie room and more! We would definitely stay here again. Oval beach is beautiful and just a quick car ride. The dune ride was a blast!
