“The Lake House provides a delightfully unique guest experience. We were traveling cross country with my buddy's Great Dane pup, so I was keen to find a place where she could stretch her legs after a long day in the car. We were pleased to find a large grassy area where Grace could play fetch, and she enjoyed splashing in the shallow waters at lake's edge. Apparently I paid insufficient attention to human accommodations, and so we were surprised by the stylish interior of the cottage. It features decorative touches throughout and offers stunning views from the wall of windows overlooking the lake. As noted in the listing, the kitchen is decidedly commercial grade and feels rather forbidding. One of the bedrooms is open to the entertainment room and features a large barn door that slides shut for privacy. The other is open to the living room and has only a folding screen for partial privacy. Access to the bathroom / laundry is through this second bedroom. The toilet is enclosed behind a privacy door, while the shower is in the separate laundry room. This arrangement allows three different individuals to use discrete areas of the sanitary suite simultaneously. Outside is a pair of decks reached by a raised walkway off the entertainment room. This is a great place to watch the sunset and emerging fireflies while sipping a favorite beverage. While The Lake House is dog friendly, we were surprised to learn of a $30 pet fee not included in the AirBnB total and payable in cash. Fortunately my buddy had cash on hand.”
You’ll love my place because of the comfy beds, the kitchen, the beautiful wooded setting, the pond, swimming pool, and the views. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, business travelers, and families (with kids). Here is a fabulous video made by a guest! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IjbGvuCMkXg
“This place was exactly what I expected! Beautiful private place to enjoy the outdoors with family and friends. Between the pond, pool, and horse/donkey there is plenty to do! Very happy to have the privilege to share this home ... definitely would stay here again.”
Rustic one room log cabin. Built in 1931. Bathroom is on the back porch with both hot and cold water. The cabin is equipped with an airconditioner, heater, refrigerator, microwave, stove, grill and a queen sized bed. Setting is rural and tranquil. Very quiet, beautiful place to relax and unplug. No TV or WIFI, but good cellular signal.
“Bill's place is truly in the nature and very private. We enjoyed our stay very much. A very nice fire pit with chairs. There is a nice screened back porch with table and chairs if you don't want to be disturbed by bugs. Comfortable bed with clean sheets. Good hot water. He had everything we needed.”
