Great Place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

Very nice home. We had the whole family for 5 days. All our family enjoyed the house and especially the lake. The boats were fun and the fishing was good. The house was comfortable and the kitchen and dining areas were great for a large group. We highly recommend this vacation house.

Perfect wedding weekend rental

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for our wedding party to stay for the weekend. It's 15 min proximity to Hermitage Hill Farm venue was perfect. We had hair and make up ladies come to the house on wedding day morning for me (bride) and my bridesmaids. It was a beautiful day so we did hair and makeup outside on the huge upper deck, which was great for the makeup to be done in natural light. The groom and groomsmen got ready in the basement man cave complete with TVs and foosball table. Our photographer and videographer came to the house and got some beautiful shots of us getting ready. The views are absolutely gorgeous! Our wedding party had a blast being able to stay in a house all together rather than split up in hotel rooms. It was such a great experience. The owners are super accommodating and very professional and nice. We would definitely recommend this Crimora rental to anyone!

What a gem!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to Crimora Mine Retreat, and now I see why so many people return. We felt right at home in this lovely, well-stocked cabin! My only complaint is that we couldn't stay longer. We are already want to plan another trip! Thanks so much for sharing your lovely home!

Place is awesome. Has everything, and they really try to take care of everything for you. You really don't have to bring anything besides perishables and aluminum foil/saran wrap. If you want to fish, you'll have to bring a pole, but otherwise, they have it all. We (4 families) had a great time - our only issue was that we should've stayed an extra day! Highly recommended!!!

Private, lovely, easy drive from city, and great amenities

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is lovely, plenty of space for the nine of us. The pictures don't do it justice. The kitchen is stocked with much more cooking gear than we expected. Extra fridge downstairs, ice maker/wet bar, fireplaces, fire pit, and access to the pavilion with kayaks, deck, and outdoor pool table. The views were great and the privacy was a plus. Very clean. Also, little touches like soft blankets, throws, and sheets added to the coziness. Lots of wineries and breweries nearby but we were having so much fun we never left the property. The management is great-- customer service, on call, and always helpful. We're already planning our next visit!
