A great place in every way!

  • 5 of 5

Our large extended family joined up at this home recently, and from the moment I walked in I felt that everything was first class and well thought out by the owners. The house layout is very conducive to a large group, yet feels very private and overlooks the St Croix river. A gorgeous place in every way; the three bedrooms upstairs and one on the main level were all well-appointed and comfortable and private. The fifth bedroom downstairs with four beds and it's own bathroom was more open and great for the younger crowd. The owner was always available if there was a question, though there were very few! I would heartily recommend anyone with a large gang to consider this beautiful home and setting; it was just perfect for us.

Amazing house even in sub zero temperatures

  • 5 of 5

My family and I enjoyed ourselves immensely. You guys thought of every little detail down to the laundry baskets in the closets :). Even though it was soooooo very cold we had a blast hunkering down in the Dog House and playing games. We all would love to come back again in the future. Thank you so much for sharing you wonderful home with us.

Lovely setting; clean, warm, and welcoming throughout.

  • 5 of 5

Fully modern with a homey, welcoming feel. Great views of a lovely setting. Spacious layout with many extras -- detached hot tub and game room, bikes, outdoor lounging areas, safe stairway access to river beach, kayaks. Owner very responsive to rental and facility questions. Kitchen appliances and utensils far better than my own. Plenty of room for 12 family members, all of whom had a great time. We plan to come back.

Wonderful family Thanksgiving

  • 5 of 5

This was a beautiful location for a family get together for the Thanksgiving weekend. The house is immaculate and beautiful, right on the St. Croix river. The "Dog House" was a hit with the kids ... pool table and all. It was large enough for everyone to have their own space and we enjoyed the very tasteful décor of the house and property. I can't think of anything that I would want to be changed at the house! Perfect!

Family reunion

  • 5 of 5

This was one of the best houses I have ever rented. Everything you needed was offered. The house was beautiful, the beds were comfortable, the kitchen is well stocked, and all the little extras supplied for the weekend enjoyment put this house over the top. We had 5 couples staying with a lot of room to move and not be stepping over each other. All 10 of us agreed, we need to come back next year, the house was so much fun and felt like home. Thank you for the best weekend ever.
