Guestbook comments from the owner

This house is INCREDIBLE! We were a group of 8 who only had a short time to stay, but we all agreed that we would have booked for much longer if we could have. Definitely on our list to return to. The house is gorgeous. I loved the wood building, open space inside, warm fireplace beside the floor-to-ceiling windows, and all of the little things that made the house like a home away from home. We all really appreciated the extras Lauren provided (beautiful soaps, fully equipped kitchen, etc.) so we all felt like we were hanging at someone's (really amazing) country house. We explored the property's private woods and made it to the lake, which was also a highlight. This is definitely a property I would return to. It felt like a dream home and I want to bring more of my friends back here. Thank you, Lauren, for being so accommodating, easy to communicate with, and for allowing us to spend time in your precious home. Hope to be back soon!

The Ultimate Relaxation :)

  • 5 of 5

My family and I are so glad we stayed here! This property is calm and quiet, the house is open and warm, we loved the quiet peaceful walk through the woods on our way to an afternoon at the lake :) Returning to the city rested and restored, we hope to head back to this cabin again soon!

Cozy, Beautiful Lakeside Home

  • 5 of 5

The home was beautiful and comfortable, fit our entire group of 10 people plus one small pup.

We had a lovely time and enjoyed the fireplace as well as the firepit outside. Lauren was prompt and communicated quickly.

We had to find our own fire wood for the stay but usually, there are logs there for use. The wifi and phone signal was weak but we were warned of this beforehand. This home would be great during the summer as the lake looked beautiful, would love to come back during the warmer months.

Home and hotel in one!

  • 5 of 5

We went here for a family getway - 9 adults and two kids - just for the weekend. House was so easy and had everything! Was very kid friendly! Had crib, bouncer, swing, high chair for baby. For our 5 year old they had games books and playroom in basement. Bed linens and towels were nice and clean like staying at a hotel. Kitchen had lots of supplies and they had all the basics to make for easy stay (soft goods, etc). Managing service was very accessible and gave great recommendations for local chef/caterer one night. Only negative is I thought house was more over or on the lake - you had to take a quick 3 min walk to get to lake but thought it was more in backyard. (Lots of houses I was looking at in this price range were actually overlooking lake). Outside of that we had a great time and it was nice and clean. I will definitely be coming back!

A true home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

Honestly, we were blown away with the cabin. From the privacy to the incredible amount of space, nothing fell short of amazing. There's enough to enjoy within the house itself, but then there's the lake scenery right in your back yard. Lauren was very quick to respond to any messages we sent and made it easy to book. I will most likely rebook in the future and definitely recommend this home.

Stunning property, exactly what we were looking for.

  • 5 of 5

Our family had an incredible time at the cabin. We spent most of our time on the lake paddle boarding and swimming. The lakeside is beautiful and so relaxing. Was perfect for the kids. The house is spacious and very clean, equipped with everything we needed. We'll definitely be back next summer!!
