  • The perfect spot


    Our stay at this beautiful home was amazing. Very accommodating with anything you need in a home. Lots of space for the family and tons of space for the kids to run around outside and enjoy the great outdoors up north. Our host did a great job in making sure the house was in perfect shape for our arrival. Thank you so much for letting us stay at your home. Was a weekend we will never forget.

  • Great little getaway up north


    The house is very spacious and comfortable. The owner is friendly and accommodating. The house is well stocked so you don’t have to bring your own (laundry supplies, cooking utensils, condiments, games). The only thing I would note if someone is not used to it - the water is not City water. It gives the water a smell, and you’ll smell it washing dishes, showering, etc. The place is super nice and the owners take good care of it, but I think it’s helpful to know about the water if you have never really stayed somewhere outside a city.

  • November stay


    This home is located in a seasonal residential area. We were there during hunting season (Nov 12-19) which was the “off” season. The property owner was very accommodating. The home suited our needs in regards to location.
