Great house with lots of rustic charm

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at Karl's house. The house is in a private setting and had everything we needed. It had comfortable spaces and a cozy feel throughout. Karl is a warm and friendly host who made sure our check in went smoothly and his communication was excellent. We'd recommend Karl's house to any prospective guests. Thanks Karl!

Charming and Cozy

  • 4 of 5

My family and I were in town for a wedding and needed a place to stay. We were fortunate enough to find this home. Rustic and woodsy yet with all the comforts (fantastic WiFi!!) and plenty of room to spread out. If you enjoy quiet and stars that look like you could pick them from the sky, this is the place for you. Karl, the owner could not have been more accommodating. We all wished we could stay longer and plan to go back one day.

comfy and private

  • 4 of 5

Our stay was relaxing and comfortable. Karl was very helpful navigating the property and making himself available in the event we needed anything.

The property is very private and Lake Garfield is peaceful and relaxing! The area offers many outdoor activities and delicious dining options or choose to stay put enjoying all the amenities the cabin has to offer.

Looking forward to another visit soon!

Thank you Karl!

Wonderfully relaxing get-away

  • 5 of 5

My family wanted to have a peaceful winter break and we certainly found it with this cabin. It was charming and comfortable. We enjoyed being in the woods with a short walk to the lake. The master bedroom was spacious and the bed was very comfortable. Karl, the host, made himself accessible and came up to meet us. He was a great host. As it was winter, we kept the wood-burning stove going, which added to the charm and comfort. The cabin was stocked with all of the basics you could need. Overall, we had a wonderful week.

Great lake weekend

  • 5 of 5

Great house and great access to the lake. There is a dock just a short five minute walk down the road that you can relax on and swim off of. Bring some floaties and you can just float in the water all day. Perfect for swimming. If you have little kids, the beach nearby might be better. But the dock was perfect for my friends and I to sit and relax all day. We loved it. The house was clean and nice and had everything we needed. Karl was very helpful.

The house can be a little hard to find at night in the dark, so make sure to follow the directions Karl emails you. The GPS might lead you astray.

We had a great time.

Clean Property, Wonderfully Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

this was the perfect, easy getaway for my husband, 22-month-old, and I. the house has everything you need, especially if you like to cook as much as we do, and karl couldn't have been more accommodating, even though he was miles away while we were there. he called and gave me the run down before our arrival, and told me to call whenever i needed. the home phone was not working, and we didn't have reception on our cells, but we relished in disconnecting for 5 days. plus, the area seems very friendly, and the neighbors weren't too far (tho the property is very private) in case of emergencies. most of the time, we read our books in the back yard and listened to the trees in the wind. i can't wait to go back! VERY comfortable king-sized bed to boot…and lots of great, vintage children's books and movies for those who have kids…cozy cottage living!
