About Dan Carver
This 100 acre farm was purchased by the Carver family in 2016. For many years, Dan Carver Jr. (the father) and Dan Carver III (the son) often talked about wanting to own a farm. Needless to say, this was the second farm they looked at, and once they saw it, had to own it. They were impressed with the fact there were two separate lodges at opposite ends of the property, a 17 acre lake stocked with largemouth bass, channel catfish, and bluegill, and a natural 30 foot waterfall with a large plungepool, the sound of which could put you to sleep in minutes. They were also impressed that two spring-fed creeks runs through one whole side of the farm and there were hiking/ATV trails throughout most of the property. The abundant wildlife that often come through the property and lake views from both lodges sealed the deal. The father and son were so excited, in fact, that they made an offer on the farm right then, and quickly realized they would have to go home to explain to their wives what they had done. Fortunately, their wives were excited and quickly went down to see what projects the family should start first to begin making the farm as fun as possible. This farm is a labor of love for the Carvers and they are excited to allow others to enjoy the property by renting out both lodges, the proceeds of which will be reinvested into the farm to continually improve it for future guests. They are excited to share their recent projects on their Facebook page and on the Recent Project Page on this website. Pictured above is the Carver family from left to right: Dan Carver III, Trisha Carver, Taylor Carver, Dan Carver Jr., Dan (Cash) Carver IV, Marie Carver. Come check out why the Carvers love this place so much and why they refer to it as their "Paradise".

Very nice place, All 5 of us had plenty of room and the house was very clean. We all enjoyed the trails and enjoyed fishing. Our kids loved it, would definitely recommend! Thank you Carver family!
Thanks for taking great care of our property and we hope to have you back again soon!
Excellent place and nature every where.
Our family enjoyed the clean well stocked house, beautiful lake, excellent trails, and fun paddle boat. Also met the owners Dad who gave us a long tour and history of the property. The owners really do care that your vist is better than expected.
Thanks for staying with us! We appreciate how well you took care of the place and hope to you back again in the future.
We had a wonderful stay at the Taylor Lodge in July. The cabin is very well taken care of and exceptionally clean. The beds were comfortable. The upstairs where the queen bed is located, is a loft open to the downstairs. The cabin is near the water with a small dock, and a short walk through grass (or drive) to the larger swim dock and boat entrance. We saw deer, an armadillo and lots of birds. We loved having a camp fire and making smores by the lake. We highly recommend renting the boats which made the lake more enjoyable. The bass, while small, were biting during our stay. The water was clean and the dock has a ladder to climb up. We were the only ones at the property during our stay, but if the other cabin was rented you would share the swim dock. The water level was low, so no waterfall, but it would be stunning if the water level was higher. The trails were a little overgrown and maybe more for ATVs than hiking, but we did venture out on them. The whole property is beautiful and well taken care of. There is a small creek nearby that the kids enjoyed walking through and catching crawdads. We also greatly enjoyed the Castor River Shut-ins. One word of caution is that the roads are very curvy and arriving in daylight would be beneficial if not familiar with the area.
Thanks for the very detailed review. We appreciate the time you spent giving feedback and you pointed out some great points to consider. We hope to see your family again in the future.
Amazingly beautiful property!
Stayed at this stunningly beautiful property with my kids for a week. Excellent host and great communication. The house was very nice with tons of extra linens. Snack basket was greatly appreciated after a long drive from WI. Make sure to visit the Castor river shut ins which is a short drive from the property. We had a great time! Thank you for everything! Highly recommend renting this peaceful country place!
Thanks for the kind review and we hope to see you again soon!
Truly a secluded paradise with fun for the whole family!
This vacation rental is amazing! The owners really went out of their way to make this a comfortable home away from home. They provided a well stocked kitchen with plenty of bottled water and a basket of goodies including s'mores! Wood for the camp fire, a log in the fireplace, and more! Plus, excellent air conditioning and washer and dryer!
If you are into fishing.... It's not really fair to describe it as fishing. More like "catching"! I got up every morning and landed 20 bass within an hour! They are fighters too!
The property has amazing wildlife.. from our porch we saw beavers, eagles, armadillo, and amazing birds.
The farm is totally secluded and all 80+ acres are fenced and gated. We enjoyed the hiking trails in the woods and the beautiful waterfall as well!
We highly recommend this vacation rental and we can thank the owners enough for an amazing get away! We can't wait to come back!
Scott, thanks so much for the kind words. One of the main reasons we rent out our place is because of the joy it brings to other families. Thanks for being great guests and we hope to have you back again in the future.
Great, relaxing spot!
This cabin was just what our family needed for a quick spring break trip. The cabin itself was in great shape, everything was clean and comfortable. The extra attention to details made everything more enjoyable - firewood, bottled water for the city folk, the basket of welcome goodies on the table.
We went on a few hikes that were well worth the drive. The first was to the Castor River Shut Ins and the second was to Pickle Springs. We also brought our own kayak and paddled around the lake on that and the paddle boat, despite some pretty frosty temperatures. The private waterfall is beautiful and those who were willing to risk their shoes getting wet crossed the spillway to walk the trails on the other side.
As with most places in the country, do plan to arrive in the daylight.
Thanks for the review and we are glad you enjoyed yourselves. Thanks for taking great care of the property and we hope to have you back in the future.
