Comfortable Peace / Wonerful Family Space

  • 5 of 5

Our family is spread out all over the US & we do not get together often. So when planning this trip, our kids all wanted to stay together in the same home, to get as much time together as possible, without motel walls between them. . It was everything we could ask for. Listening to our kids talk by the fire til the wee hours. The grandbabies waking up before mom & dad so grandpa & grandma got snuggle time. . Big breakfast with everyone trying to get the last biscuit. The house gave each couple (4) their privacy & yet they could holler back and forth like when they were kids. Sittin on the deck having coffee & letting the grand babies run with no worries. This place is so nice, clean, good beds, nice bathrooms, kitchen had everything we needed. Jim & Dina were more then gracious, we did not want for anything. If you want family time, down time, nature retreat..You can listen to the Owls talk to each other at night & the stars were endless. It is a quiet work space or can be a very relaxing romantic get away ..this is the place. Don't wait, get your down time in. The park is just a short walk down the lane. If you need help setting something special up, Jim & Dina are super happy to help you make your stay everything you could hope for. They did ours... We are planning our next family trip already. There is also a quiet romantic getaway for grandma & grandpa in the future... Don't wait as long as we did to get together.... It is worth every dime & every second. Marty & Patty Richard

The house is beautiful, the pictures don't do it justice. The beds were excellent. Kitchen needs bowls and pans.

Loved not having a TV but missed not having Internet

Great Get-A-Way

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful cabin for a group. Much more than advertised. There are three bedrooms and three baths, plus a loft with twin beds. We planned to just sleep there, but ended up spending a lot of time relaxing and hanging with family.

There's no TV or Wifi, and cell service is sketchy, so plan accordingly! Talk to one another!
