We had planned our vacation at the last moment. This was the closest & best match for our vacation to Silver Lake. The owner was very courteous when we did initial inquiry till the end.
We arrived late at the property but everything was arranged, cleaned properly and setted up well. Couldnt rank it more than perfect. We were 3 families and everything was set quite well for all. In the morning the place looked so pretty it was exactly how we had dreamed about a house far away. A small river flowing in the backyard, a barbeque, firepit (with enough woods), good seating arrangements(4 benches @firepit), a well made deck @the river. This place was no less than what a city living person might have dreamed off.
The surroundings is quite, there is a market just .5 mile away from the home & you would virtually get everything you need to survive. It was just 30 mins away from Silver lake Sand Dunes.
The house is well equipped with electronics for the kids to watch any kind of entertainment (Amazon/Netflix etc). If you have a canoe you can get into the river right from your backyard.
While leaving we texted the owner that we are checking out, it was a very pleasant discussion. We were amazed to know that the owner actually built this house all by himself from the base to the roof. Accolades for his artistic thoughts and the dream place.
If given a chance we would once again like to visit the same place and spend some more quality time probably a week atleast.
