Sit on the front porch with a cup of coffee in the morning and enjoy peace and quiet. You will love the view from all areas of the house.

Second time we have stayed here & is wonderful.
Our family loved the country comfort. The home was beautiful. Plenty of room for the kids to play. The stocked kitchen and dishwasher was great vs having to use plastic and paper. The washer and dryer was beyond the best amenity for a mom... No dirty laundry returning a lake trip! Already planning our next stay☺
Charming cabin in a country setting
Stayed here for 4 days end of June until the 4th of July. Had a small family reunion at the cabin one night and everyone was in love with the property. We hadn't seen each other in 2 years and we really enjoyed ourselves. On the remaining days, we did a lot of things including a winery tour (Big Sky is gorgeous, and worth the drive), went to the Isle (a casino about an hour away), rented a pontoon boat on Rend Lake, and just had the best time. The location was great for us and I hope to be back soon.
Thanks for sharing your cabin with us, Amy. You made our visit very enjoyable.
Lovely home, inside and out! The seclusion we were seeking.
Not what is pictured or expected
I was excited about this rental & it was disappointing. I have worked in Real Estate & the home building industry. The photos on the site are not current, the property is not being maintained appropriately. The front porch & back deck cannot be enjoyed due to a carpenter bee & dirt dobber infestation. The house is advertised to sleep 10, however there is only dining space for 6. Our family couldn’t sit down for meals together. My adult son could not use the upstairs back bedroom due to an active beetle infestation. The house is not finished, lots of trim is in the garage, no trim in the upstairs of the home. The upstairs bathroom has “steam/heat” damage, and without proper ventilation and lack of trim there is sagging paint & stained paint and pealing wallpaper. There are no towel bars in the bathrooms, none, and no hooks on the backs of the doors, nowhere to hang your clothes for after the shower, although there is some of the hardware in the bathroom cabinets. The basement bathroom has active mold growth on the ceiling tiles. The living room has one sofa and one loveseat, that will only comfortably seat 5 people, again the house can sleep 10 if the bug problems get cleared up but if your group is larger than 5 you cannot sit in the living room together. The amazing wood ceiling/flooring is curling up & gapping due to heat/moisture damage from not maintaining the inside temps & you can see through the floor from the second floor bedroom & bathroom into the main floor master bedroom & bathroom. Finally, when the dogs come to visit, the little one (don’t know its name, never were told) is harmless until you close the door to go inside, then it cries and yelps so loudly it is a nuisance when it is 10 pm and you are trying to get sleep. The big dog, Wrigley, is very pretty and very strong, it almost knocked me over & we had to have the men hold it back so it wouldn’t knock over others, and Wrigley will bark late into the night while the little one yelps.
Again, I was excited for to find this rental, but I am extremely concerned that this house is not being maintained. I notified the owner via text, she said she would look into the issues I reported. Our family will not use this rental again & recommend others to either rent with caution or look elsewhere.
Well I have a few things to say to this post. You came to the country and yes the house is maintained just fine. I have a bug guy come once a month and spray. I can clean all the LADYBUGS up and then put everything away and they are back. It's called COUNTRY and being in the woods everyone here has them. The upstairs bathroom was painted by a 5yr old. This home was built to live in but when my husband passed away at the age of 38 yrs old things change and sometimes you want to leave the stuff where he stopped or left it. The floors were tight as could be when we built but over time the house has settled so I can't undo the house he built the home from top to bottom. Also its a boarded or ducks in the bathroom upstairs. The house is unfinished BECAUSE my husband died before he could get all those things taken care of. I just can't seem to have it taken care of just yet. I have had many parts there and no one has ever had a problem of finding a place to seat and visit. Everything you see is what we bought to put in the home. Other than a bed in loft and bed in basement. This was very hard for me to read. The home will be stained this fall because we didn't finish it when he passed. I'm sorry you are to high class to be in the country. The dogs are neighborhood dogs they like to visit and when you pay attention to you they stay and cry for you. Again it's COUNTRY. The mold you speak of was from a leak from the bathroom upstairs. The pics you speak of that is not updated the only thing is there is no flowers on the porch because the DIE in this heat. Im not there everyday. There is towel bars in the bathroom on main floor, and basement just not in the girls bathroom upstairs.
Beyond Our Expectations
Upon arrival we were completely impressed! Once we entered we were even more impressed with the amount of space this place provided for our group of 10. The kitchen was well beyond stocked with the necessities and there was definitely more sleeping quarters than we expected. The basement area was a definite surprise! Our kids absolutely loved the visits from the two dogs, especially the little one that greeted us every morning. If we are ever in need of a space of this size, we will definitely book again. Thank you Amy for a wonderful place to stay!
