Why Cathy Albright chose Cub Run

As empty nesters, we were looking for a convenient location to enjoy family time with our grown daughters and their families. It is a blessing to be able to share our good fortune and this beautiful location with family and friends.

Nice Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a nice place to share the Christmas Holidays with our Family, and this location fit what we were looking for as options. This house was a nice home away from home, allowing us to cook a holiday meal and share with our family. Plenty of pots, pans, cutlery, serving utensils - everything (stove, microwave, dishwasher) worked, no problems. Would be a better place during the warmer months - as too cold for us to enjoy much activity outside. Plenty of parking. Screened in porch is nice and spacious. The home is modest, but provided a great space for our group of 11 to share holiday memories at a time that was important to us. We would consider staying again in the future.

Beautiful home, Great location

  • 5 of 5

Our family really enjoyed the stay. Cathy was very easy to work with and quickly responded to any questions we had. Their home is beautiful and well equiped, neighbors were great, and the location was perfect if you're looking to get away in a nice quiet country/lake setting.

Great time!

  • 5 of 5

I had friends come stay with me from Ohio, Kentucky, Michigan, and Missouri. We lucked out with very warm weather in November and everyone commented on how perfect the place was. The screened in patio was my absolute favorite spot in the cabin and I was sad to leave it. Thank you so much for the perfect birthday weekend!

Great for a family trip; furniture could use some maintenance

  • 4 of 5

The house is in a beautiful location, and we loved the screened patio room and the fire pit. Some of the furniture has seen better days: the couch arm and the recliner were broken, and the patio sectional has some saggy parts. Kitchen is well-equipped. We could have used instructions for the TV and accessing the kayaks. Carolyn and Denny are just the right amount of helpful and friendly. And good news: the county is no longer dry! Overall this was a fine spot to celebrate my parents' 40th anniversary with a family trip.
