My boyfriend and I stayed here for the weekend at the end of January and we had the best time! It was beautifully kept, super clean, close to everything we needed. It was cozy and homey with the most beautiful views and a gorgeous fireplace that was so romantic. We loved everything about spending time here and will definitely be doing it again, thank you.

Perfectly suited to our annual Ski/Super Bowl Weekend

  • 4 of 5

This home easily accommodated our group of 12 adults plus 3 children under 3 years. Lots of room to spread out and fair sized common area for meals, etc.

The owner was very easy to work with and very responsive to inquiries, both by email and text.

Suggestion for future renters: bring your own coffee pot if you have several coffee drinkers in your group. We purchased one at the local Dollar Store, as the Keurig was not suitable for our group, plus we did not have K-cups on hand.

Perfect Family Reunion House!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this house-it was comfortable for our family and the setting on the river was beautiful. We had a little trouble with the heating system at first but realized it took a while for the house to get warm. I would recommend this house for family gatherings.

Shanty Creek stay

  • 5 of 5

Dave- we certainly enjoyed our stay in your beautiful home in Shanty Creek. The home is nestled in the woods along the beautiful crystal clear Cedar River. There was more than enough room in your home to accommodate the 4 couples during our weekend stay. Your home is located in a "sweet spot" where there are many great restaurants, bars, microbreweries, etc...within a short drive. Location to many great golf courses is a bonus as well.

We will stay here again in the future if the home is available during our fall trip up north. I also appreciated the corispondance with you prior to our stay, making sure our arrival and stay would be enjoyable.

First Experience with VRBO

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful experience working with Dave. The property was perfect for us. Home was more beautiful than the pictures represented. Four couples had plenty of space. The walk down to the river was easy and well worth the trip. Bathrooms were clean and home had all the supplies needed to make our stay perfect. Visited Shorts, drove into the town of Alden, and even got in a round of golf at Schuss. I would not hesitate to rent from Dave again. Our stay was the week after Labor Day and the weather was great.
