average rating of 5.0 based on 3 reviews

Beautiful and lots of FISH.

  • 5 of 5

Greg & Nancy were great hosts. The cabin was clean, very private, and couldn't have been better. The Bass fishing was great. We caught lots of fish and some in the 3 to 5 pound range. We will definitely be going back.

Amazing weekend

  • 5 of 5

What a relaxing weekend! The cabin is wonderfully furnished. It is surrounded by trees and the beautiful lake. The views from every window in the cabin are amazing! We caught a lot of fish despite a wicked storm Friday night and temperatures in the 40s/50s with a stiff wind.

Nancy and Greg are great hosts! We will definitely return.

Everything we hoped for. Quiet, peaceful, secluded and near nature.

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for sharing your home. We loved the serene environment - especially fishing off the pier. The host is wonderfully polite and helpful. The house is clean with plenty of room. The kids think we just need to live here :)
