Nice private setting
Would love to give 5 stars but I just had a few issues.
First, the positive. Love the setting. Very private cabin on private large pond. Property is well maintained. Beautiful sunsets over the water that you can watch from cabin, laying on outside hammock, or even on the deck on the water. Items are available in fridge for purchase if needed. Cart is available for Canton trade days if needed. Owner was very responsive. My wife and I enjoyed our 4 night stay while shopping during First Monday trade days. Only about 15 minutes away. Full kitchen is available for those that desire to cook but we mostly ate at First Monday grounds or at Martin Mills store just up the road from the cabin. Martin Mills store has good food at good prices.
The negative. 1. Minor negative are the beds. Main bed is super firm. Secondary bed is fold down bed and was too short for me. My wife and I took turns sleeping on the couch. 2. Bathroom is super small. 3. I did not notice garbage policy when I booked. We live 4 hours away and had to take 4 days worth of garbage with us when we left. There is no garbage service provided for guests.
Being from the country, it didn't really bother me, but some may not like having to open and close gate when entering or departing property.
If not for the 3 negatives listed for me, I would definitely want to stay again because I loved the private waterfront setting and fairly close location to Canton.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The cabin was immaculately clean and very comfortable. The view of the lake from the house was breathtaking and the sunsets were gorgeous. Would have given it a 5 except that the bathroom was small.
Very tranquil and enjoyable stay!
A great way to escape the hub-bub of the Canton crowds and if we lived closer, this would be a great way to get out of the city! Hearing the coyotes at night and being in the rural setting was very relaxing.
We came for the Canton Trade Days and enjoyed the short drive to and from the cabin. Once we got our Google Maps honed in on the location, it was easy to get in and out (Initial address put us 1/2 mile or so up the road, but we quickly found the place as it is the only lake on this road and the cabin is easy to spot). The property was beautifully manicured and was in great condition just like the pictures. The Forge just up the road was a great option for dinners and the lake was fun as the fish were eager to be caught!
The accommodations were just as advertised (including the small bathroom), and all furnishings were updated and comfortable. The bed was more firm than we are used to, but carrying out own mattress across country would be a challenge.
Jo was great to work with while getting the reservations set up and was quick to respond to our questions. The welcome basket and available treats for purchase were a nice touch (and we even enjoyed one of the movies available in the cabin).
The cabin is immaculate. The private lake is great and fishing is wonderful right from the covered dock. The bathroom is very small and it is difficult to move around. The toilet so close to the wall that it makes it quite a challenge for seniors :)... If you want to eat out Martin Mill is within 2 miles and Ben Wheeler is about 6 miles. Easy country driving. Jo is very easy to work with and always immediately responsive to anything that might come up.
Love it! We will be back but for a longer stay next time!
So peaceful & relaxing even with the severe storms we had on Saturday night. The fishing was great all weekend. I will say a weekend is not near long enough to completely enjoy this piece of heaven.
Great private place to unwind, with your own private lake
