What makes this cabin unique

This is our personal cabin we have remodeled and decorated over the past 6 years. This is a very special place for our family and friends. As our children have gotten older we have not been able to spend as much time at our cabin so we thought we would share our cabin with other families to make great memories.

Beautiful House on a great piece of land

  • 5 of 5

We stayed there over the weekend for a getaway and loved every minute of it. We were able to make an escape and discconect from everything! From the moment we stepped into the house we were in awe of the character of the house. Beautifully decorated and great size. It has it all... nice rooms, a game room, fire pit, lake and river. Look forward to staying there again!

Perfect Large Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our large family to celebrate my Mom's 80th birthday. The house was handsomely decorated, the loft space offered many sleeping options while still creating enough privacy for everyone (beds in each dormer). The kitchen was a good space -easy to work in and comfortable for playing games and doing arts and crafts. It was nice to have two living room spaces so we could all spread out. The dock and large yard were perfect for enjoying the nice weather. This is a sweet spot - very remote and peaceful!

We had a wonderful time! We stayed for a warm President's Day weekend.

  • 5 of 5

This home is everything they described. It is very well made, clean, comfortable & the wildlife on display is remarkable. We had 8 adults, 2 school-aged kids and 2 infants. Because of the very warm temperatures, we had many walks on quiet roads, passing by homes and Amish family farms. We were able to have a wiffle ball game in the backyard. We cooked all our meals at home and were glad we came prepared with groceries. We appreciated Lynn's prompt responses to questions we had before coming and while we were there.

Awesome Family time

  • 5 of 5

As a family of 8 with two little people we could not have asked for a more beautiful place to spend a long weekend. The atmosphere was everything we wanted and were not disappointed. The details in the rooms and all the decorations were perfect.

Our kids (ages 35-31) had so much fun with being outside as well as playing games. We even brought a game table up so we could do a 500 piece puzzle. That was finished in 2 days.

Kitchen was cozy and we found that you make things work when you have a bigger group. Again, it added to the family time that we wanted.

We like to do a winter weekend every two years and if all goes well you will be hearing from me again for January 2019. It sounds so far away, but time does go by fast.

Thank you for allowing us to enjoy your beautiful home.
