Either way, lots of ways to enter the water and get back out without difficulty. We do allow multiple dogs ( since we own several ourselves).. .. so just let us know.

The Privacy- and the spectacular views! beautiful area

Guestbook comments from the owner

House was better than the on line pictures, bedrooms are spacious, grounds are gorgeous, setting is picture perfect, house has a very comfortable feel to it; furnishings and items provided by the host were more than expected, and much better than you would find in a competing hotel or motel setting. For our family this house was five stars ... Thank you !

Leslie,

We had a wonderful vacation at your Log Cabin Retreat!! The cabin is very welcoming and furnished with lots of extra details. The dogs loved the large fenced yard. We really enjoyed the quiet and cozy retreat. We will be back again!!! The Jones

Wonderful respite from a chaotic world!

  • 5 of 5

Three couples and pooches hung here for a crisp November weekend. Air was crisp, nights were spectacular and bonds of friendship bolstered over fire, conservation, cooking and commiserating. Lovely place. We hope to return and repeat...

It's a GREAT PLACE!

  • 5 of 5

Humans and Canines really enjoyed everything about the property and had a great time. We had a boat delivered and picked up at the dock. It was a very smart rental process with all the information you could need about the home, the area attractions etc. The house and lake are beautiful. Highly recommend.

10/27-10/31 Peaceful & Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this beautiful home. This property is exactly the way the site says it is. Running around in the backyard was perfect for our dog Daisy. The docks, the use of canoes were so easily accessible. The house was immaculate and well taken care of. We enjoyed the quietness of late October while playing scrabble in the screened porch, grilling nightly, making breakfast every morning in the well equipped kitchen and just relaxing and fishing down at the lake. The hot tub was clean and set at the right temperature for our early morning dip. It was a big house for just the two of us and our dog, but it was the perfect getaway (just not long enough). It was lady bug mating season, so we were greeted by hundreds of lady bugs and one flew in my ear and came out 45 minutes later. I think that means I'll have good luck for quite some time. Thanks again Leslie, Cheers to you! Bill, Brittany & Daisy, Richmond, VA

2nd visit just as excellent as the first!

  • 5 of 5

We love this place and hope to make it an annual trip. We used to go to the Outer Banks but find this to be more relaxing and just as convenient from Richmond. It is perfect for our K9 heavy family. New fire pit was perfect for a S'mores night. The Kitchen is great for anyone looking to cook a gourmet meal for the family. Well stocked with everything you should need.

We have yet to try the Hot tub. Maybe next time. Thanks again for having us and the 'Kids'
