Hi Dave & Christy,

We just wanted you to know how much we enjoyed our stay in Heron's Nest. It was a perfect place. Really well furnished, great views and it was so clean and inviting. We look forward to returning. We were especially grateful for the quiet the unit afforded us.

Nice property that is peaceful

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I along with our 2 children rented this home for two nights. The property was very nice and clean. We still can't believe the rate. They could charge more. It was relaxing sitting outside as the sun set. There was plenty of room for the kids to play outside. The owners are nice and respond quickly to your inquires. We will rent this home or the one next door next year.

Comfortable place and great birding

  • 5 of 5

The place is situated with a lovely view of the lake and ample space inside and out. The bed was comfortable and kitchen well appointed for cooking dinners. There was no place to walk the dogs along the lakeshore from the house but the state park is a nice spot and we mostly visited the many amazing wildlife refuges and great walking trails off highway 20.

This was our first stay at the smaller neighboring property and it was wonderful. Clean and well equipped. We unfortunately booked during the time all the fires started in the area. We were notified by the property owners of the fire close by before we even had time to worry about it. Although the fires did not effect the property, the owners offered to alter our reservations if we needed. We stuck with our reserved dates and besides a little smoke, had a wonderful stay. We had about a half an hours worth of a nearby either car or home alarm going off early in the AM and the dishwasher is a little stubborn and needs a special touch to get working but other than those things, I would most definitely recommend this property for your next visit. For the larger groups, they have a bigger house that is just a joy to stay in right next door.

Owner's Response: Hi Daniel, thanks for being a repeat customer! We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay. Thanks for letting us know about the dishwasher. We had it serviced and the problem with latch has been resolved. We also spoke to our neighbor about his alarm. It malfunctioned on his vacation home and he is working on resolving the issue. Look forward to seeing you back in the future! Regards, Dave and Christy

Peaceful getaway

  • 4 of 5

This home is modern, well-cared for and in a quiet location with beautiful views. An outdoor deck would have made it perfect - but since it's on a cleared hillside there were plenty of places to set up chairs outdoors and a well-placed picnic table. The owners responded quickly to my questions, and I plan to return here in the future.
