    Family Fun!

    Reviewed by: Sara S. on


    We had 3 generations meet up from Texas and Wisconsin for a late holiday gathering. With 8 adults and 5 kiddos, we had more than enough room for all of us. The kids enjoyed playing in the basement and the adults spent most of the time around the dining table. The home was clean, had everything we needed and the outdoors were gorgeous! We can't wait to meet here again.

    What a great place! Thanksgiving dinner was fantastic with so much room! We saw a lot of wildlife and saw at least 7 deer! It was really great to NOT have wifi, to disconnect and enjoy family time.

    The Log House was perfect for our stay. Many rooms and a great location. The woods surrounding the place was peaceful and even got to watch some of the local wildlife. Our family thoroughly enjoyed the stay and look forward to staying here again in the future.

    Scrapbooking Retreat

    I recently stayed all weekend here for a scrapbooking retreat. Verizon users could get a little coverage other than that, no coverage. And I was OK with that. It was so relaxing and beautiful there. I had so much fun. I now want to bring my family here!

    Good Stay - Few Issues that were resolved.

    Reviewed by: Alexis F. on


    The house was very nice, and most of the issues that we had I think were simply because we had 15 adults in our group, and I don’t believe management was quite prepared for a full house. The initial check-in was a breeze, they even kindly accommodated an early check-in! On arrival it could have been cleaner, there were cobwebs and dead bugs on the inside sills of many of the windows and when we swept/mopped the floor it picked up quite a bit of dirt though it should have been cleaned the day before we arrived. We found a sign indicating that the lower level fridge was broken, and no one had called to let us know, so that created a hassle since we had brought all our food for our 10 day stay. A replacement was not brought until over halfway through the trip. We were surprised to learn that the kitchen on the lower level did not include a stove. The upper level kitchen, however, was lovely. The bedrooms were just as described and had wonderful memory foam mattresses - we all slept very well! The porch areas had beautiful views and our guests thoroughly enjoyed sitting out there with coffee in the morning and socializing in the evening. After our arrival, the property manager was easy to contact, and both the housekeeper and maintenance man were very friendly and helpful. We knew there was no wi-fi, but only our guests with Verizon had a barely-there cell service, and ATT had no service, simply a surprise to us - no reflection on the rental property itself. It is definitely a rural area!! Overall, we enjoyed our stay. I think with a bit more preparation by management as to what a full-house of guests actually requires, the incidents we had could easily be avoided. I would certainly recommend the home to travelers in the area.

    Having the ability to watch at least the news (cable) and/or just wifi would be a great addition to this property.

    Beautiful property and well worth visiting.

    We enjoyed our stay here so much that it was tough to leave. The kitchen was well equipped with pots, pans, plates, glasses and utensils. The beds were clean and comfortable. We met another family and we could all eat together at the table downstairs. It met our needs perfectly!
