I can't say enough wonderful things about this place! The location is gorgeous, the home is absolutely stunning (even better than the photos)! It was very spacious, warm, and had everything my partner and I needed for a relaxing and restorative getaway. The house itself is very secluded in its own portion of the woods, but it is 10 minutes from everything you could need- grocery store, video rentals, gas stations, restaurants, and downtown. Richard, the owner, is probably one of the nicest people I've ever met. He takes amazing care of the property, which he personally built! When we got there the first night, he had stopped by and turned on the lights, fired up the hot tub, and had pleasant music playing on the TV so we could really feel at home when we arrived. The whole trip, he was easily accessible by phone for anything we needed and even lent us kayaks/drove us up-river so we could go downstream all the way back to the house. One thing to know before you go- there is limited internet access-- enough to check email, but not enough to allow streaming so bring DVD's! We would love to stay again, and would recommend without hesitation. Absolutely a 5-star rental!
