Would go again.

Worst, front porch was great when it rained,but 4 people fell going out the door because the steps are a poor design, plus a railing would be nice so you don't fall 10 feet off. When air compressor needs replaced move it to the other side of chimney so you don't have to talk over it while on the deck............ wonderful week with kids and grand kids and awesome pool.

Rustic, private vacation home

  • 4 of 5

Home has a lodge like feel and had plenty of room for our party of 10. Kitchen well stocked with dishes, pots, pans, several medium and large crockpots, and an assortment of spices and condiments, coffee pot, toaster, blender, small microwave and of course fridge, stove/oven and dishwasher. Large TV in great/dining room. We enjoyed the pool. This property is surrounded by trees, and very private, very peaceful. The 3 bedrooms on main level have private baths, i.e., accessed only through bedrooms. The 4th bedroom/TV room is on lower level - no bathroom on lower level.

A wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 6th year to stay at the Cozy Log House with Private Swimming Pool and it was great. We have never been disappointed. The house is always very clean, lots of room for our family and the pool is great. There is plenty of room for a large family to be together and still feel intimate and there is also plenty of space for individuals to find a quiet place if needed. It is a very quiet area with little traffic. You can sit on the deck with your coffee in the morning and see deer walking across the edge of the property. It is also very close to 2 marinas. Just a wonderful place to let down with your family. We are already making plans to stay there next year.

Beautiful location, house much larger than expected

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful, secluded location. This house is huge and beautifully decorated. It could easily accommodate multiple families with children. We vacationed with six adults and we loved the pool and seperate entertaining spaces. Biggest negative for a large group would be bathrooms all on main level off bedrooms.

Cozy & comfortable home!

  • 4 of 5

This home was great for our group of 10! We had plenty of space and everything was very neat and clean! The owners were great to work with and were great communicators. We had an issue with the pool that was resolved very professionally thanks to the owners. The pool and the house were lovely and we would definitely stay again! My only suggestion would be to add more lighting in the home, it was a little dark at times!

Our family really enjoyed the pool and had a great time. We enjoyed the privacy and location of the home. A few updates on decks would be a nice improvement. Overall it was a great time.
