Just what we had hoped

  • 5 of 5

Clean, quiet, beautiful, relaxing...our daughters loved walking/hiking around: to the horses and around the pond...and playing with all the rocks. They also enjoyed meeting the dogs/cats and great people! The stars were amazing! The fire pit was also nice. Got to see deer. The hosts were very friendly and helpful. Our room was spacious with 1 king and 4 twins, plus private bath and refrigerator, all very clean. Beds cozy and comfy. Used the shared kitchen some, which was also clean and stocked. I really enjoyed the character of the lodge and property. And it was so great that we were able to bring our dog! Thank you!!!

Quiet retreat

  • 5 of 5

My Husband and I stayed here with our dog and 9 month old daughter. The room was very spacious, the bed was cozy, and the owner was welcoming and kind. The property sits on a gorgeous, sprawling horse farm which makes it a wonderful getaway from the busyness of life. We will definitely be returning!

Great choice for a family

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have asked for more - large room with plenty of space for our family of 5, clean private bathroom, comfortable beds, nice people, beautiful natural surroundings... I'm so happy we decided to stay here. We didn't spend much time at the house because we were busy exploring and hiking, but when we came back it was relaxing and quiet. I loved the hilly pasture with horses and the frequent deer visitors. It was nice to see the fireflies at night while sitting around the fire pit. Patsy and her family - and the adorable resident pets - made this a nice retreat.
