Close to ORV and ATV trails

  • 4 of 5

We had a great stay and will be back. Trail access was very close. The open space when you walk in is huge. We had a group of nine and it felt very comfortable.

House was great just what we were looking for.

  • 4 of 5

Everything was great. House was clean when we got there. Everything worked and we had plenty of room for 8 people. Only complaint we had was the guy who loves across the street and cleans after people check out came over every time we had a fire going. This was fine the 1st night, but after that we wanted to sit out there and talk about the days riding and joke around with each other. Having a stranger there didn't feel right. The guy was nice enough but we wanted to be left to ourselves. This won't stop us from coming back the house was great and it was nice and quiet for us.

Wonderful Home !!!

  • 5 of 5

The house is gorgeous and we felt at home as soon as we walked in. It is the right size for 2 couples. We loved the kitchen so much that we ate in rather than eating out. The beds were very comfortable and the living room/dining/kitchen are huge. The only problem we had was the lights. so many switches. LOL

Defiantly would stay again!
