Rustic charm, modern comfort.

We loved the cabin, our boys loved the loft, and we all really enjoyed the fireplace.

Awesome Place

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is beautiful. All the comforts of home in the middle of a private wooded setting. Took my son to get away for a weekend to some fishing and rest and relaxation. Kevin was a pleasure to deal with. Definitely coming back!

Awesome Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

We had a guys' weekend here and we couldn't have been happier with the location, the cabin and all of its amenities and the kindness of the owner. The price was more than reasonable for the amount of land at your doorstep and the space provided. There were 11 of us total, and the extra fella really enjoyed the comfy couch. This place really does have it all. Hoping to go back soon!

Outstanding for Families

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the lodge for 3 weeks this summer with our 2 boys and absolutely loved it. There are hiking and biking trails, a lake for fishing, boating and swimming and the lodge is set way off the road so it is perfectly safe. The lodge is equipped with everything you need and we were super comfortable throughout our stay. There are several outdoor picnic tables for hosting larger groups and the porch as some great gliding chairs. The owner is very helpful. We are returning for a month next summer and are looking forward to another stay.

Wonderful place to stay!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying at the Lodge. The inside is rustic and beautiful and has everything you need (just bring washcloths/hand towels). The pond was great for my dogs to swim in and we had fun paddling around in the canoes. Supermarket/Target/Gas...all kind of stores are just 10 minutes away. Sushi place was delicious. Kevin is a great host - promptly answers the phone for any questions you might have. Plan to stay there again next summer. Definitely a place for peace and quiet!!
