Beautiful and peaceful home, with the perfect mix of modern and rustic.

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom modern cabin in the woods. Everything was fresh and clean, with lots of wood finishes/furnishings. The hot tub was a great treat, and comfortably fits 4-5 people. That said, be sure you have at least a couple of moderately strong individuals to get the rather heavy cover off and on.

The large, modern kitchen had plenty of utensils, cutlery, pots/pans, and dishes. There is a dishwasher. Be sure to bring your own coffee, however. The upstairs living room has a large, and very comfortable leather sectional sofa, and leather recliner. Tiled walk-in shower is nice, but could use additional lighting. The bed was comfortable, but may not be the best choice if you have serious orthopedic issues.

Krisha runs a tight ship here, and the rules were somewhat intimidating, in terms of both specificity and amount (not to mention severity of penalty for non-compliance... I don't know to what extent Krisha enforces the explicit penalties in the Rental Agreement, a copy of which is kept in one of the kitchen drawers, but there are a couple that seem like they may have been designed to deprive the renter from getting their security deposit back). That said, the rules really aren't anything that a reasonably responsible group/family shouldn't be able to handle, such as putting the used towels in the laundry room before leaving, putting the trash (in bags) in the trash cans outside, no loose trash, keeping the hot tub cover on when not in use, no food in the bedrooms, etc. We found the only somewhat difficult provision to be making sure that all the dishes were not only clean but put away on our last day, with a check-out time of 10:00 a.m. Again, the rules are more intimidating than they are difficult, and you can hardly fault Krisha for trying to make sure that guests contribute to keeping this lovely home lovely.

We would definitely stay here again, and would recommend this home for any group/family looking for a peaceful country get-away.

Great weekend stay

  • 5 of 5

This was a great home for our needs. We had a wedding in town and a group of us were able to stay together. It was a great home for us as well as situated in the perfect location. We appreciate the space and the remote location, as no one was around us, however we were within 10 minutes of everything that we needed all weekend.

Our son's Commissioning into the Army!

  • 5 of 5

This home was the perfect place to celebrate our son's Commissioning into the Army. Our family had such a wonderful time making memories in this beautiful home. The home offered everything you would need to make you feel comfortable as if you were in your own home. Cleanliness is always top on my list when I travel and there were absolutely no issues in this area. Such serenity surrounded this home and we felt like we were in our own paradise surrounded by nature.

Many of my extended family members commented on what a beautiful home this was and expressed an interest in renting it in the near future. I know if we ever do plan a trip out this way and need larger accommodations, I would not think twice about renting this home again.

Can sum this home up in two words: JUST BEAUTIFUL!

Frankfort, Illinois

Everything was in excellent condition.

  • 5 of 5

We were in town for a family reunion and this house perfectly suited our needs. We were pleased to be able to have 3 of our children and their spouses, along with 4 grandchildren stay together in one location. Everything was in pristine condition. We will consider this house next year or maybe the othe Hale house by the fishing pond.
