Wonderful Family Get Away..

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I booked this cabin for his parents and us to have a weekend get away. They are advanced in years and don't really get to go too many places anymore. They totally enjoyed this weekend. In fact they wanted to stay an extra day.... The fellas went to the dock and fished and the woman just really relaxed. We went to Fall Creek Falls and to Rock Island Park. They are not very far away. The cabin is fully stocked with anything we needed. It was a wonderful weekend and we will be booking this cabin again....Thanks for the opportunity to make their weekend special.

The Milam Family.

Cozy and peaceful

  • 5 of 5

Our group enjoyed sharing this property together during our weekend at Rock Island. We really liked the coziness of the inside and the scenery outside. The wrap around porch made it nice for front porch sitting. The back yard is massive and great for outdoor activities during cooler parts of the day. The private boat dock was very nice. We enjoyed floating off of it to cool off a bit.

family getaway

  • 4 of 5

The house is beautiful in a very remote area. It is not as kid friendly as I thought it would be. The staircase for upstairs bedroom/loft area needs to be addressed, there needs to be curtains put on window in loft area-the bright sunshine woke my son up, the HDMI ports were removed from the tv and no cable tv, the wifi was extremely slow and poor lighting. Other then those issues it was a very relaxing getaway. The house was clean and roomy. The kitchen functioned very well. I liked having the 2 bathrooms and the laundry facilities. There was a book with good information in it. The fishing pier was a nice option.

Beautiful property and cabin in a quiet country setting.

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed a wonderful four day stay with family at this great property. The cabin has everything you could possibly need to spend any amount of time here. Gina was great at making the whole process super easy.
