    Perfect weekend getaway

    The cabin was absolutely clean and tidy. We did not need to bring anything extra with us. The kitchen was fully outfitted. It felt like we were visiting a friend's house. We will definitely make this a yearly event.

    I have rented several places through Vrbo and by far this has been the best one from location price things to do nearby and cozy comfortable will definitely recommend had everything we needed Only thing I suggest to the owner is to cut the trees down or a major trimming so u can get better views of the lake

    Family quarantine vacay

    The trip was perfect for getting away, staying away and being with only each other. The house had many things to keep us occupied. The sunsets were amazing. Our favorite place ended up being the front porch most days. We have a 1 and 3 year old and they loved it. There were two pack n plays for the little one, a high chair, toys for their age range. My 3 year old loved sleeping upstairs by herself. There is a keurig and a coffee maker. The kitchen was well stocked for cooking. (We did bring our own air fryer.) We did go to town the first night and get take out from Earl G's. It was great. I will say that we will visit again... But unfortunately it looked like the land directly next to them is for sale and that will take away from the quiet lake vibe. Something to keep in mind if you're wanting to get away without neighbors. Otherwise, no complaints at all!

    We spent a wonderful Thanksgiving here. The views and amenities were more than we expected. Although the weather did not cooperate, we still enjoyed s'mores using the fireplace. We plan to visit again!
