  • Restful getaway


    We really enjoyed our stay! This property is secluded, peaceful, restful and there was plenty of nature encounters in the morning with various birds and deer. We loved the beautiful sunsets out the large kitchen window and the quiet start to the morning being secluded in the woods. The property was beautifully crafted, spacious, clean and inviting in all areas of the home. Our family of five had plenty of space to unwind and relax! We would highly recommend this property for a restful getaway or family time.

    We absolutely loved our stay in this spectacular home! It's in a beautiful location with awesome views, especially of the evening sun set. There is a large kitchen equipped with everything needed to serve the group. All the rooms in the house are tastefully decorated and the beds are very comfortable. If you're looking for a nice, clean and relaxing place to get away, we highly recommend this rental. It truly is fabulous!

    We loved staying on this beautiful property. So peaceful and homey. Very clean with a well appointed kitchen. Hot tub was put to good use! Only thing I would suggest would be to add another couch downstairs by the tv so more people could enjoy an evening movie. We will definitely come again! Thanks for a great stay!
