  • A great place to get off the grid!


    The small home was as advertised. It was clean, comfortable, modern and very quiet. Everything worked well, including the internet!

    This property is absolutely fantastic! The owner was super friendly & hospitable. The interior was clean & well maintained. They didn’t spare any expense (like some VRBO’s do) on the mattress. It was super comfortable & I slept like a log. Super quiet & somewhat remote leads to a very nice stay. Take a chance on this we’ll kept secret. You won’t be disappointed.

  • Thank you for a terrific country/remote vacation stay.


    Our Family enjoyed our week stay at the cabin. The Owners kept the outside area well groomed and provided firewood and clean grill for outdoor enjoyment/cooking. Cabin was well stocked with kitchen supplies, bathroom supplies and linens were fresh and clean. Great get-away in a rural setting.

  • Homey cabin


    The cabin was very nice and comfortable to stay in. The furniture was pretty comfortable. It had a good size living room and every thing in the kitchen that you need. Overall it had everything that a family would need as far as a place to stay. I will probably use it again.

  • Quiet stay in a tiny home.


    Went to the tulip festival in pella. Stayed in a quiet tiny home out in the serene country side. My wife and I loved it.
