Very nice

  • 5 of 5

Clean, comfortable, quiet and close to the golf courses we were golfing at. Perfect. Joanna sent me an e-mail with all the info I needed, returned a call promptly and even left a six pack of "aiming fluid" for our group. Nice touch! Thinking of staying there again to golf Sand Valley.

Very clean and well maintained.

  • 5 of 5

This property was great. It was very spacious and in great shape, it exceeded our expectations. We were only there two nights so did not have the opportunity to enjoy the fire pits and the rest of the property. Next time!

My stay in the woods

  • 5 of 5

My family and I loved our stay at retreat in the pines. We will be coming back. My grand daughter left her favorite blanket in the cabin, and the owners were gracious enough to mail it to us.

Dear Joanna and Andy, Thank you for renting out a beautiful home. We loved everything about it!

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to stay! Not far from the boat landings and bait shops. We spent most of our time on the water fishing and relaxing in the breezeway when we returned from the lake. We loved how clean and cozy it is. Everything a chef could ask for in the kitchen was great as well! We ate like Kings all weekend! As for lake petenwell, the bite was hot and slow. Some of us caught some trophy fish and our biggest to date. Let’s just say we had a blast! Thank you again for the hospitality, and we look forward to coming again soon!

Great Cabin Conveniently Located Near Ukarydee

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in this home with my daughter while others from our barn were camping with horses at Ukarydee. I enjoyed having a house to escape the heat and later in the weekend escape the rain! Everything was great! Joanna was responsive before the trip and we had everything we needed. Thanks for the hospitality!
