The house was very cozy. We had a good time. The fireplace was the best part because it was so cold outside. We hope to stay in the summertime and do some outdoor stuff. All in all the house was great.

Great getaway house!

  • 5 of 5

Great house with everything you need for cooking and grilling. Plenty of firewood provided for use in the indoor fireplace and outdoor chimnea. The house was very clean and the owners were very easy to deal with. We were st luck indoors one day because of rain but they have plenty of games there so we weren't bored. Glad we stayed there.

Weekend winter getaway

Not one complaint about our stay. The owners were easy to deal with & responsive. The house looks as pictured. It was clean & had mostly everything we needed. We enjoyed the fireplace, lake view, & games. Overall nice place to get away with family & relax.
