About Melinda Study

We love Michaywe and you will, too. This is a custom log home built in 2005 by family and friends with love and care. If we may say so, this is a beautiful home. The amenities at the clubhouse include indoor and outdoor pools, hot tub, tennis courts, restaurant, and of course the golf courses are outstanding.

Melinda Study purchased this house in 2005

Michaywe Log Home, Perfect For Large Groups

AS usual, the home was spotless, comfortable and ready for us. It's a beautiful location for our purposes and we are never disappointed. Plenty of space for the one-on-one conversations but a large enough area to have our group come together for the meals, movie watching and other group activities. Overall splendid accommodations for us.

A group of us come here every year to "retreat" from the hustle & bustle of our lives and to reconnect with each other and, as usual, the environment was so relaxing and comfortable it felt like being home with out the stress. It was so great, we didn't even mind waking up to snow in October! It was a stunning view. Thanks again for a relaxing and wonderful weekend.

This is a perfect cabin for a large family or group. Spotless and came with everything you needed except your food and drink. This is one of the best places we've ever stayed in -- luxury hotels included.

Wedding/family reunion

  • 5 of 5

Wow! First of all, what a pleasure it was to work with Mindy. She went above and beyond to ease my pre-wedding jitters. She answered questions about caterers, tent rentals, additional lodging , cake bakers and flowers. My wedding was a destination wedding, so not living in the area was a bit of a challenge. Mindy eased my worries.

The lodge; gorgeous and spacious. High-end appliances, furniture and linens.

My guests were surprised and pleased by the homey feel and conveniences.

Very affordable for a large group.

Our experience was fabulous. I am telling everyone I know about it.

We would definitely stay here again and now will check out other VRBOs as well in other locations as we travel around the country.

Thanks again for helping to make my wedding perfect.
