Guestbook comments from the owner
Dear Mr.Troyer & Family; Just want to say thank You for a wonderful stay at your "Waters Edge" Cabin; We loved all the exquisite decor of each room. We had an invigorating walk around the lake, but the highlight of the trip was the zip line experience. Your cabin is so inviting and it allowed plenty of room for 3 generation to interact.

Thank You again for a very enjoyable weekend. Mr. & Mrs Buck our Kids & GrandKids Too!

Richard has been a log home builder for 27 years. Richard and Katie have both seen their partners go through cancer and pass away. Then God so graciously brought us together in 2005. Richard had 11 children and Katie had 9 which gives us the grand total of 20. One passed on in 2000 so we cherish the others though most of them are now married and do not live at home.

We enjoy all the natural beauty around us. We greatly appreciate what ' Our loving Father in Heaven' has created for our enjoyment.

' The answer is Jesus with-in'

Richard and Katie Troyer purchased this lodge in 1998

We are using this beautiful log home as a model as we share it with others.

I always enjoyed water, The depth of the lake and the high ground with its ever green trees all around is what drew me to this location. You will have to exsperance it yourself to know what i am saying.--------Richard & Katie-------

AMAZING PLACE

  • 5 of 5
This property surpassed our expectations. The log home was beautifully crafted, there are many thoughtful details throughout that extend to the waterfall and dock. The rainbow bridge was a lot of fun and we got some good family photos. We went during the Fall colors and the views from the deck were amazing. We enjoyed all the supplied firewood for the fireplace and campfires. It was fun to meet the owner and hear his stories about how they built the place and to fellowship over God's Word.

Owner's Response: Thank you Nathan for the review. We also are amazed at the colors and truly this year I think they have surpassed other years. The maple trees all around and in the diriveway are so beautiful this time of the year. The colors hung on for so long although that was probably around the height of it. We enjoy meeting our renters very much. We're glad you enjoyed it. The bridge is a good place to take pictures and the balcony upstairs or the dock have also been used for pictures of large groups or weddings.

PHENOMINAL

  • 5 of 5
We used this location for our organization's leadership training, and we didn't have one negative thing to say about it. Richard and Katie are very sweet people first of all. Secondly, the property and the cabin were perfect for the purpose of our trip. It was perfect for the young people that we brought. They couldn't sit on their phones, computers, or in front of a TV. They were forced to engage in human interaction, and for this generation, that's almost unheard of! Even though they didn't have internet or TV, they had a BLAST. Swimming, fishing, volleyball, canoeing, bonfire, the zip line... Seriously, we were ALL satisfied and would not change a thing. Even from a bunch of teenagers, there were NO complaints.

Owner's Response: Thanks Carmen, Yes, in todays technology, people tend to only interact through tex, e-mail, etc. It is beautiful to see youth and adults alike interact with each other and actually communicate in person and enjoy each other's company. With such a variety of things to do at The Water's Edge Home, people usually don't seem to become bored. I enjoy seeing all the activity and enjoyment people are having while staying at the home. I'm glad you all enjoyed your stay with us. Thanks for leaving the place in such good condition. Richard and Katie

The cabin was exceptional. Well designed. Large and comfortable. The opportunity for activity was also excellent. The unit was well priced for the amenities. Washer and Dryer were new. I would have given it an excellent if the kitchen cookware has been better.

Owner's Response: We were glad to have you stay with us. My mistake about ant larger dishes that you may have needed. We have some at the home and usually try to tell my groups, if they need more to let me know. There is plenty available. Thanks for the reminder.

AMAZING WEEKEND ESCAPE

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful weekend away at the waters edge. The home is amazing and hosted by 2 wonderful people. Richard greeted us on our arrival and started the fire in the fireplace. A fire we kept going all weekend long. Everything you would need for a getaway was provided. We kept ourselves busy walking the woods, playing ping-pong or just enjoying some quiet time by the fire. Our 4 year old enjoyed it so much she was quite the protester when it was time to leave and return to civilization. We look forward to returning until the time we can have Richard help us build our own Natural log cabin.

Owner's Response: We enjoyed having you stay with us at the Water's Edge Cabin. We also enjoy the fireplace, but for those who don't want to be bothered with the wood fire we also have in floor heating which is run by a thermostat.
Once a log home is warm which we try to do before our travelers arrive, they are easy to heat. They also are cooler in the summer. Looking forward to build a log home for you. Thanks for coming

WEEKEND GET-AWAY WITH FRIENDS

  • 5 of 5
As a group of friends with families, we wanted to break up our long winter and get away for a fun weekend. We decided on the log cabin at Water's Edge because of my pleasant experience there the previous year with some ladies.
We all had a wonderful time. The teenagers spent the day snowmobiling nearby. We went for a nice walk across the bridge and in the woods while a couple people stayed back and started a campfire. Everyone had a chance to use the zip-line and they all seemed to like it. At night we had a challenging ping pong tournament in the basement. The cabin was very cozy and warm inside with the two wood burning stoves. Everything was very clean and it was spacious for a large group; we were 19 people. We had great hospitality from the Troyer's and the setting of the place is just beautiful. I'm thankful for our time together at the Water's Edge and also for the wonderful memories that we made there.

Owner's Response: We're glad you had a wonderful weekend and enjoyed the outdoors as much as the indoors. Your youth were great. I'm glad they enjoyed the snowmobiling in the field and around the property. You chose a good time for snowmobiling. There was plenty of snow. It will soon be gone. Also happy to hear you enjoyed the wood stove and fireplace although for those who don't want the bother there is in floor heating which makes it comfortable. We do enjoy the fireplace ourselves and the coziness of wood burning. We also enjoy having returns.

GREAT GET-AWAY

  • 5 of 5
The "cabin" was spacious, beautiful and well equipped. Everyone of every age ( 4 - 60) really enjoyed this family vacation. Our hosts could not have been nicer. Besides the incredible cabin the surrounding grounds were gorgeous. We were close to skiing and cross country ski trails and sledding hills we took advantage of all of them. Fun fun fun.
We hope to return next winter!

Owner's Response: Thanks Joannie, we enjoyed having you stay with us at the cabin. We do enjoy having people return again. With all the snow this year , many have taken advantage of the skiing around. Soon will be maple syrup time which we do a little of each year. Outdoors is definitely refreshing.
