  • Clean and comfortable


    The location was perfect for our stay - needing to travel to Stevens Point and Waupaca. It was cozy and comfortable and had all the ammenities and items we needed in the kitchen. Thank you.

  • Wonderful place to stay.


    Just as they advertised it is a quirky house but was thankful for very thick doors and well insulated walls so the two toddlers didn’t wake each other.

    Very nice, and homey. Will definitely stay again.

    We stayed here before the holidays to visit family and it was exactly as stated. We loved that this property was dog friendly!

    This house was very friendly and felt like home. Loved the rustic, Amish, feel to it. The property managers were a joy to deal with. House was clean and we pretty much had everything we needed. Will be staying there again as we have family in that area. Our family dog was very pleased with the dog friendly courtyard and house.
