Beautiful and well-provisioned

  • 5 of 5

John was an excellent host. The house is fully furnished. It includes a grill and full kitchen. The property is beautiful and the lake is clean. Silverwood is only 25 minutes to the North. The indoor games (Pool & air hockey) were fun, and the kids (ages 3-10) really enjoyed the air hockey table.

Wonderful place!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our week in the house. It was perfect for the 8 of us. It's very comfortable, the bedroom/bathroom layouts worked well (2 bedrooms and bathrooms on main floor, 2 bedrooms and 1 bathroom in finished daylight basement with a pool table), we spent every evening having dinner on the deck and enjoyed the gas fireplace there. We also spent a lot of time on the dock. Took our lawn chairs down, and swam and fished. The water is the perfect temperature. The kids enjoyed the rope swing and swimming out to the anchored float just off the dock. Both the dock and deck are in great shape (composites). The deer on the property were beautiful and fun to watch for. We also enjoyed the house boat ride! John is a wonderful friendly host... a real character! We would definitely return.

Great Summer Trip

  • 5 of 5

The property is located in a great part of Hayden Lake, we specifically picked this location with the large lawns for the kids to run around. The house was clean, enough room for 10 people and had all the amenities needed for a week at the cabin. We lucked out with fabulous weather all week. The owner was a great host with welcoming us upon arrival, giving us a tour of the place and we only saw him when we needed something. We loved the oversized deck to eat dinners in the evening and sit around the fire pit once the kids were asleep. The owner's houseboat tour was one of the highlights for the week. Kids enjoyed the ride and jumping into the middle of the lake. Couldn't have asked for more, and an ideal spot for families.

Fantastic holiday rental

  • 5 of 5

House is wonderful. Dock is fantastic. John the owner keeps a very close eye on his property and is always hard at work maintaining its beauty. Others have complained about his presence but we did not mind at all. He helped us so many times. It is on a great bay on Hayden Lake near sandbar but that means the road in is a bit long and very winding. There was plenty of room for all of us. Thanks for the wonderful memories John and see you next year!
