Great Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This is a great house with a spectacular yard and very helpful, attentive owners.

The house suited our needs perfectly. We had a group of 15 and there was more than enough space, more than enough beds, plenty of restrooms and amenities so that we were very comfortable. The house is a total throwback, but that just added to the charm. The house was very clean and had everything a big group could need. The kitchen had more than enough space and was very well appointed. The large wrap around deck is a great place to hangout and enjoy the spectacular view.

The house is great, but the yard is really the highlight of the property. There is just so much space! The yard is perfect for all sorts of activities. Be sure to bring lawn games! The spring-fed pool is really fun and right near the house. The private lake is incredible. We had a lot of fun swimming and canoeing.

We had a great time and are considering return trips. I would fully recommend this house for your next getaway.

Amazing and cozy!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed from Wednesday to Sunday with a group of 21 people. The house was spacious and cozy! Everyone had a place to sleep and the kids had ample space to run around. We enjoyed the days lounging by the stream, fishing in the lake, and canoeing in the provided canoe. Josh was an amazing host! One of the families accidentally left a luggage bag behind and he sent it back to them for free. We will definitely be back! Thank you Josh for going above and beyond!

What a great get away place!

  • 5 of 5

What a relaxing time! And we had amazing weather for July, you would have thought it was late September. Temps the 50/60's in the morning. The place is so green and beautiful we really enjoyed just sitting on the deck with our coffee. We saw more than a dozen deer, watched the beaver swim and just enjoyed the quiet and tranquility that this remote place offers. At night the stars were amazing! There wasn't any other ambient light and we turned off all the lights in the house and saw there in awe. The kitchen is fully stocked with any cookware we needed and the house was very clean.

A serene lodge surrounded by wilderness.

  • 5 of 5

We come every year. It's not in our best interest to share how much can we love it here. Wildlife; flat fields; lakes; swimming hole; games; full kitchen. The owners invested in a new roof and windows which is nice too.

Wonderful place to vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family has been doing family reunion vacations since I was a kid, and this is one of the best places we have stayed. I was continuously amazed at how well appointed it was--pretty much everything we needed was somewhere in the cabin. For example, the kitchen had tons of pots, pans, cookie sheets, an electric mixer, a Keurig coffee make (and a regular one), toaster, toaster oven, microwave, two fridges, and a lot more. My dad got stung by a wasp and I found an insect sting towelette in a first aid kit in the kitchen.

The outdoor space was nothing short of spectacular. The grounds are immaculately kept and there is so much to do. We went canoeing and fishing every day--my son caught 3 fish. There is a beaver lodge out in the lake and we saw the beavers swimming around at dusk one night. We found three snakes on top of the beaver lodge--very exciting! One night we saw a great blue heron flying overhead and then land in a tree. The creek was full of crayfish and there are tons of birds everywhere. I went hiking every day and I have never felt so safe hiking by myself. Everything is incredibly beautiful in this location.

The only issue we had was that the downstairs had a mildewy smell. I'm not sure if this was a one-time thing due to the carpet being wet in one of the bedrooms, or if it always smells like that. But otherwise this place is a gem and we are planning to return in two years!

Owner's Response: Hello Heather, Thank you for the great review! We're glad you you and your family enjoyed your stay and had the experiences and sights that you did. We are addressing the moisture issue. It has been such a wet spring and summer so the mildew smell is indeed unusual. We appreciate you letting us know about it, and know that we are addressing it right away by adding a de-humidifier system to eliminate that problem. We look forward to your next visit with us!
