Good place to stay with a large group.

  • 5 of 5

We had seven couples who used the house as a base camp for a week long ATV trip. The house was very clean and comfortable and the owner got permission from a farmer who allowed us to unload our ATV's in his field as we rode the trails. We used the outside table for coffee in the morning and the fire pit at night before bed. Good place to stay and the owners were good people to visit with. Very nice home.

Beautiful Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

Troy and Janeen went above and beyond to make us feel at home and enjoy our stay. We went up with a group of 16 and their home was perfect; enough beds for every one, plus large open space which was great for our group to enjoy time together. We were also able to walk around the property, visit their horses and get much use out of the hot tub. Overall, the cabin was a beautiful property, very clean and spacious, great price and the owners were so wonderful. We will definitely be back!

A most memorable and pleasant stay with my friends! Had lots of fun

  • 5 of 5

Troy and his wife welcomed us with a cute little note and a bunch of chocolates :-). They explained the facilities in the cabin very well and the dessert which they told us to be so fantastic and delicious. We all enjoyed that dessert thoroughly. They were so kind enough to identify some mistakes that we did on our first day and corrected them. The place is so beautiful, pleasant and lot more. We enjoyed the camping, hot tub and a spacious living room to dance, party and have fun. The drive was too exciteful across the forest as we started from MN. We had a most memorable stay and more fun.
