Guestbook comments from the owner

The vacation week here was idyllic. Having coffee by the lake, swimming, and paddle boating around the lake was fun, relaxing and exhilirating. The house is lovely, spacious, and comfortable. We could really relax!

Our first visit to the Wren House. Such a great two days. Wish we could have stayed much longer! This is a refreshingly, CLEAN home. Every inch felt so clean. The home is decorated like a welcoming lake house. Very child friendly. The lake was so relaxing to swim in and you can see to the bottom when you are standing, as the water is very, very clean. There are 8 geese that swam over to us each morning as we had our coffee on the deck. We used the paddle boat around the lake, hiked to the falls and saw a mama black bear and her cub while on a drive. Though it was just the two of us, there is plenty of comfortable seating for many guest for meals and conversation or TV time. All the rooms are so comfortably decorated. Plenty of sleeping areas. Areas for everyone to have their own space AND areas for everyone to be together and have a fun time. There were family board games, movies and books to read as well. There were plenty of towels, blankets, comfy beds, fresh flowers on the tables, apples on the tables, floating rafts and such for enjoying the lake. Also a paddle boat. We can not wait to go back! I would love to have my family that is in different states, meet us at the Wren house for a week. You won't be sorry you booked this vacation location!
