We are biologists with a University on the west coast conducting some research in the region. We travel a lot for our work and it's hard to find a place where we feel like we are at home. This place is both a cozy and luxurious home. The owner is very accommodating and has made sure our stay here has been comfortable and welcoming. The kitchen is fully equipped. It's AMAZING and spacious! Good for large family gatherings (you can cook anything and everything with all the kitchen appliances here). The furniture and floors are new and beautiful, so you get the rustic feeling of living in the woods with all the amenities of staying at a beautiful hotel. The place is immaculately kept. We love the indoor gas fireplace for early season rainy days, but there's also a fire-pit and grill for summer evenings spent outdoors. There's a great porch with a large, sunny backyard and trees perfectly spaced to hang a hammock. We love the scenic drive just to get to the house and there are lakes and trail(s) nearby. And what summer rental has a Jacuzzi tub?? Wow! We're so excited to be here!
