Recent Guest Review: “This was the perfect getaway. It was not hard to find, even in the dark. We had some change of plans for arrival times and it was no problem. The owner offered to work with us if our plans had to change dramatically.

We were able to use the canoe and kayaks, enjoy the sunset from the landing, and cook comfortably. Our dog was happy, and we jogged every day. We also hiked at Snake Hill and Moosalamoo. And we found some cool breweries and wineries nearby. Pratt store had the few things we needed, and we bought some local cheese from the creamery nearby.

The house was great, and the neighbors were friendly. Although it may seem small by some standards and the bathroom parts in the kitchen… those were a feature, not a problem. We loved it. We played some games and read some books as well.”
