Very nice,clean, friendly stay

  • 5 of 5

The stay was great. Every thing we needed was at the cabin. The water could have stayed hot for a while longer, but it was managable. The people around were great! I would recommend a stay at this cabin to anyone!

Clean and beautiful. Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

The property was beautiful! It was clean and had everything you needed. They even had to toliet paper, dish soap and paper towels. Other houses I have rented never had those things. We had a relaxing enjoyable time. Everyone fished. Teenagers went swimming in the lake and went out on the paddle boat. Indiana beach is not far at all. More than enough lawn furniture. The owners were friendly and more than accommodating. The only dislike was the well water, it smells horrible! We are from Chicago and are not used to that. But definitely we are going to try to come back here again!

Excellent communication with owners!

  • 5 of 5

This stay was for our annual girls weekend that we have been doing for 15 years. House was clean and Grandpa Bill left everything for the river accessible. We spent most of our time outside, enjoying the deck and river. The floats that were left for us worked good, but the current in the river kept us from enjoying the paddle boat. Excellent trip, would defiantly go back.
