We had our family reunion here for a week. The ground floor bedrooms were ideal for Great-grandma. Crib available for the newest infant, bunk/loft room well used by the young teens as was the basement game room. A bathroom on every floor meant no waiting. The youngest spent time on the swingset/slide/playhouse. Owners were very responsive to our need for additional kitchen items for our large group (we're pretty much foodies). Our kids set up their own Olympics, with prizes for "stylish jumping" off the end of the pier, hula hoop twirling, and timed "uneven beam walk". Good view of play area and river from the dining area, and Great grandma could get to the pier without climbing a lot of steps by walking from front door along gently sloped yard. Thank you so much for a great time.
A few of my close friends and I needed a couple day get away from our hectic schedules with work and school. We have previously rented from Elyse and Jim before and once again we are completely impressed. Not only did Elyse check in to make sure our stay was going perfectly but she also sent us lists of great restaurants in the area and different places she recommended us to go! The view in the morning from the kitchen while we ate breakfast is something we will all remember for a lifetime. Also, the beautiful fireplace kept us all warm all night long. Would definitely stay here again and would recommend to adults, and even adults with children! There are cribs and all sorts of ammenities available which makes it such a family friendly place. Can't wait to come back soon!!
Thank you again, We had a blast!
We recently celebrated my dad's birthday . The house was perfect. The rooms were big and warm. The house had everything we needed from plenty of rooms to an atmosphere that was perfect for my dad's birthday. The property was a good fit for our group of 15 . There was plenty of room to move around and be able to catch up with family members we had not seen for sometime. Everything we needed was at the house. I would highly recommend the family house for vacation ,reunions and getaways.
My siblings wanted a place we could all go to and celebrate our parents 60th anniversary. I have been here many times and it is a very comfortable home with something for everyone. We had a wonderful weekend and made many great memories while remembering things from the past. Elyse and Jim are very nice to work with and will get my business again. Thank You for keeping such a nice warm cabin for large families to gather.
Our Bible Study group from church (13 adults and 8 children) visited the cottage this past weekend and truly enjoyed ourselves! We appreciated the amount of bedrooms, three bathrooms, and beautiful kitchen. The cottage's beach is also a true gem! We spent most of our time on it. We were thankful to use the cottage's canoe and row boat too. Many sweet memories were made on the weekend and they wouldn't have been possible without being able to stay at this great place!
We had a large family gathering to celebrate a late Christmas. This was our first visit and we were very impressed. The kitchen, living room and dining room were spacious and the views of the river were fantastic. There were so many sleeping accommodations and every single person commented how how comfortable the beds were. We would love to know what type of bedding/matresses they have there. The game room downstairs provided foosball, air hockey, and ping-pong. We had card tournaments going throughout the weekend. People commented on how well stocked the kitchen was compared to any they have seen. Many of us stayed and watched the Packers beat the Cowboys(Go Packers!) on the big screen tv. It was a great family weekend with plenty of room and even heated tile floors in the bathrooms. We commented on how much fun it would be during the summer or fall months with all the boating, fishing, and outdoor activities. Like us, if you are experiencing cabin fever during the cold winter months, this is an excellent option. Jim and Elyse made sure everything was perfect for our family. Thank you!
