  • Perfect size for my large family


    I loved The Lodge. The scenery was beautiful. My family was blown away. I have a few things that did bother me. It was not clean to the measure I was expecting. Last people trash outside in the barrel, fireplace not cleaned out, cobwebs everywhere, bugs in the windows, toilets with nasty rings in them, not vacuumed or floors cleaned just hot and miss. There was bo dishwasher detergent and 2 garbage bags. Other than the cleanliness we all absolutely loved it.

  • hang out for golf trip


    Although a 30 minute drive to the golf course, it was roomy and great to accomadate 8 of us. Lots of room and a very peaceful location. The house is old and could use some updating, but very satisfactory. We did not know there was no wifi until after we made the reservation. In the end, not a big deal.

  • Great place


    The property is remote, serene and beautiful. The house was great, plenty of room. Mixed messages in the check out instructions around trash and bedding. Overall a great experience.

  • Nice and Quiet


    Great location and beautiful setting. The house was very comfortable and accommodated 16 of us very well. It just needed a better cleaning and some TLC on the upkeep.

  • Perfect for our family gathering


    This property was perfect for our family gathering of 7 adults and 6 children. The main upstairs kitchen was spacious and well-equipped, separated from the dining area with a bar countertop. The two tables (one in the kitchen and one in the dining area) and bar seating providing plenty of space for everyone to enjoy meals together, with a screened-in porch providing scenic views and an additional area for gathering that was visible from inside (perfect for keeping an eye on the kids). The living room provided comfortable seating and included a library of books for all interests and ages. There were plenty of beds and bathrooms so that each of our four family units could have their own private area. There was lots of room for storage and plenty of spaces to spread out for visiting. Two refrigerators (one upstairs, one down) and plenty of sinks (2 in each kitchen) made food storage and prep easy. The large outdoor yard provided a great space for outdoor games and activities. Plenty of comfortable porch seating. Be advised, the admonition about no Wifi or cable TV is correct. Most of our phones had no service; there was only limited Verizon service (1 1/2 bars max, slow). The cabin is located in a very scenic area with lots of outdoor activities to enjoy -- if you truly want to get away to enjoy your family and the outdoors, this is a perfect place to do it!
