Very charming well stocked home in a beautiful setting.

  • 4 of 5

Our families got together for a reunion and weekend away. With all ages represented everyone had a great time! There was plenty of room for 7 adults and 4 kids to spread out and gather. Over the course of the weekend we hiked, fished, had a fire/roasted marshmallows, grilled, enjoyed the expansive deck and observed the butterflies! We also ventured to Smoke Rise Ranch to do some horseback riding- great experience. The home and grounds are meticulously kept and the owners provide nearly everything you'd need to enjoy your stay including chairs for the outdoor fire ring. Bring wood though! Four stars give due to minor issues including a sticky sliding bedroom door but we'd still highly reccommend and stay again!

Very nice house, was a very enjoyable stay

  • 4 of 5

We've stayed at a number of larger rental homes, and this one ended up ranking fairly high on our list. Pretty much everything was as expected. There was plenty of equipment available in the kitchen, the space was clean and comfortable, and the rooms were just what we needed.

There were aspects that were antiquated, but everything functioned well. The light switch list was useful.

We didn't take advantage of the outdoor facilities very much, but could have. The screened-in porch was awesome. We sat out there for hours.

We were a little concerned that we had gone through the wrong way when going through the neighborhood, but once we got down the driveway, we knew we were in the right place. The driveway is a bit steep... FYI

Wonderful retreat!

  • 5 of 5

The house was fantastic. The hosts made our stay comfortable and enjoyable. Jeff supplied lots of information leading up to our stay that made preparing for our trip and navigating to the home easy. The house had more than enough to meet all our needs over the weekend. There were plenty of towels, sheets, pillows - and the kitchen had all the cooking supplies (pans, baking sheets etc) that we could possibly need. Would highly recommend for your large group retreat.

Spotless & comfortable with a great floor plan. Every detail attended to. Wonderful house & property

  • 5 of 5

It was a pleasure to walk into such a spotless house. Not a cobweb in sight! Even the screened in porch was squeaky clean. The owners have provided every comfort imaginable. No detail was skipped over. The kitchen was incredibly well stocked with everything we needed and more. Adults and kids had a ball playing several of the games provided. The kids were able to have their own space with this well defined floor plan.

An early cup of coffee on the chilly deck, watching the fog rise over the lake was made perfect by the deer spotted in the yard!! The Fall weather was excellent for hiking, leaf throwing, roasting marshmallows and late night conversations around the fire pit after the kids were in bed.

Our yearly weekend family gathering of 14 was a memorable one. Thank you. We hope to return again next year.
