Super Quiet, Relaxing Post Christmas Vacation
My sister and I and our two dogs rented this property for a couple of days following Christmas. It was extremely relaxing and very quiet. We had one day that was day of mostly rain where we just sat around the gas fireplace in the living room and read or hunkered down in the downstairs family room watching movies with the wood fire place going. The other days were beautiful and we enjoyed taking long walks with the dogs around the property, sitting on the back patio and enjoying the hot tub.
The house was clean and open which we loved but it is a bit dated inside and some of the appliances are not in the best shape, but were certainly adequate. While there are televisions in all the bedrooms only the downstairs family room television was set up to get channel reception.
That said this is a very comfortable and spacious home with wonderful outside space. We had a wonderful time and hope to return again in the future!
What a wonderful Thanksgiving!
Our family and friends from different states gathered at the Lodge to celebrate Thanksgiving. The house and the location were perfect for our needs! Spacious, homey, comfortable and well stocked home with a fabulous patio provided plenty of room and privacy for all of us. We spent a lot of time exploring the grounds, enjoying the serenity of the setting and wildlife sightings. We enjoyed the quality time preparing meals and hanging out in the big kitchen (two ovens!) The dining room was perfect for our family and the Thanksgiving feast. Thank you Doug for being the most gracious and attentive host ! We had a great time, left recharged and with great memories - that's the opinion of the three generations present. Thank you again for sharing your property with us!
We loved having you.
Restful country setting
This property is secluded and very beautiful. Set away from town among the cornfields and along the river. Plenty of space for large families to enjoy inside and outside time. Beautiful night skies full of stars. A restful vacation for all ages.
Great weekend and a Gracious host!
Had great vacation with family at a beautiful location. Doug was extraordinarily accommodating and we really enjoyed our stay!
Beautiful secluded retreat
We rented this with visitig friends and it was lovely. The house is huge and spacious with everything you will need. It is very private with huge open space around the house and a river and fields to explore and play in. The hot tub is great as is the patio fire pit. The decor and furtinure are a bit dated but very comfortable. The host was great, available quickly for questions and help but leaves you to your privacy nicely. Altogether it was a perfect and beautiful retreat from the city and very easy to get to.
Perfect Weekend Getaway
My friends and I stayed at this house for a mini getaway last weekend. The house and the land is beautiful, the pictures don't quite do it justice. Very clean and updated, and the house came with everything we needed, including an abundance of blankets/towels and even wood for the fireplace. There was more than enough room for all of us to spend time together, but also privacy when needed because of the nice setup of the house. One master bedroom/bath and another bedroom with pullout couch on main floor. Plus another master and a bunk room on lower level, each with their own baths. Fully equipped big kitchen, cute breakfast nook, main dining room, two living rooms, and a gorgeous patio with a hot tub overlooking the land.There was also a rec room with ping pong and air hockey that we had a lot of fun in. Even though it was winter, we enjoyed going for a long walk across the farm and down to the river, and took in the peacefulness of the area. Our dogs loved running around, and we were very happy to be able to bring them as they are a part of our family. The owner is very nice and accommodating, and was a pleasure to rent from. We even received a welcome basket which was very thoughtful! All in all a great house with absolutely no problems! We will definitely be back again!
