The lake is crystal clear as it is one of the only spring fed lakes in the area.

Please consider helping my staff, by removing any towels used in the bathrooms and any sheets and pillow cases from the beds used during your stay, just before you depart. Leave those used linens in the first floor laundry room. I do expect you to leave the house in same general state of cleanliness, as that in which you received it. However the remainder of all deeper and detailed cleaning and all linen washing will be done by my home help.

Nice house in the woods

  • 4 of 5

This house had comfortable beds and sheets. One queen and four twins. The bathrooms were also spacious and had plenty of towels. The small air conditioning unit was sufficient for our needs. Our family liked the large open living/dining area.

The home is not luxurious and shows some wear and tear --especially on the doors. We also found that the dryer didn't dry in a timely way. Perhaps the vent is not working properly. There is also a dog that lives nearby that barked for LONG stretches every night. That was tiresome.

This house was certainly adequate for our family of 7 adults.

Great time

  • 5 of 5

We just stayed for a weekend. The home is wonderful! it is so much more spacious than the pictures portray. Beds have high quality mattresses and were comfortable. Nice little hike to the lake and the dock has a bench which was nice for a handicapped person in our party. We hiked the Paul Bunyan trail nearby. Walker has a dozen fun shops to explore.

Family and friends get away

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was just wonderful, clean, open floor plan and worked just great for all of us! Really comfortable furnishings and the kitchen was well stocked with what we needed, and it was really nice to be able to cook in a real kitchen. The grill was definitely a plus too. We enjoyed the old school game that was there and more game, large yard and bonfire. Beds are comfortable and the house is nicely decorated. We loved the front porch with the picnic table and a swing. We didn’t get to enjoy the outdoor much because it's rained the whole weekend but we had a really good time spend with family and friends here in this cozy cabin. We’ll definitely be back! and consider bringing or renting a pontoon next time. Thanks Eileen for your wonderful hospitality and creating such a cozy vacation home!

Great Family Getaway

  • 4 of 5

This was a great place to stay with our entire family. The lake is fairly private, so no congestion. Loved the wildlife coming into the yard and how quiet and peaceful it was. Everything you need was there for us when we arrived. Planning on going back again.

Perfect for Cabin Weekend with Old Friends

  • 5 of 5

The cabin had a large, open floor plan which was perfect for sitting around and catching up with old friends and singing karaoke. The cabin also was equipped with everything you would need (and might have forgotten to bring)- towels, plenty of cooking utensils, cooking spices, soap, and washer and dryer (perfect after a day of boating). The yard was large and provided plenty of space for yard games, hammocking, and a nice, large bonfire ring with minimal mosquitos. The lake water is clear and perfect for swimming. Floats are provided to make swimming off the dock easier and the dock is large enough for multiple boats. Out of all the cabin weekends we have done in the past years, this is by far the best cabin we have stayed at (with the best price)!!
