What makes this lodge unique

Waking up with singing birds, watching sunrise reflecting from the lake, magnificent views of large pines, and deer grazing in the pasture, spending a day on the lake peer fishing, kayaking or riding bikes, and going to bed with coyotes howling that's makes this place truly unique and breathtaking.

Good place for a family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Very good place for a family get away. Had everything we needed. Quick response for all my questions. More than enough room for our group of 15 people. Maybe a 2nd TV in a room would have been a little better. But loved it over all!

2nd time visiting the property and certainly won't be the last.

  • 5 of 5

From the ping pong table to the private pond and everything in between, this place makes the perfect getaway. Both visits have been a great time and I look forward to coming back every time we leave.

Lovely country setting away from the crowds. I loved that personally.

  • 4 of 5

Love the country setting!!! The house was clean and comfortable. Nice kitchen, bathrooms and beds/bedrooms. The only recommendation would be a larger TV in the living room and maybe one or 2 more in some of the bedrooms. Thanks for a great place to ha e our ladies weekend!

The cabin was really nice and well decorated

  • 4 of 5

My family and friends had a great time there, Nataliya was so nice and accomidating. It was very peaceful and loved the fishing...I would've given it 5 stars, but the only negative things were the lack of wifi and a good phone signal...other than that it was great...looking forward to going back.

Owner's Response: Dear Chris! Thank you for coming and staying in my lodge! Unfortunately you did not mention that you needed a WIFI, I always provide my guests with WIFI upon their request using a router. As you have noticed the lodge is located in deep woods, however the phone reception is excellent! We have Dish network and a huge DVD collection. Again, thank you for coming.
