September 2017 Renter Review: “We had a blast. Thank you for the memories. The view is amazing. We really enjoyed sitting by the fire pit. The neighbors were very nice. We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect weekend. We found this place at the last minute after searching for days. It kind of feels like it was meant to be. Thank you again for having us.”

August 2015 Renter: “Appreciated vintage furniture and nice touches like bedside tables and reading lamps! And lots of hooks to hang things up. Great fire pit! We liked having marshmallow sticks available. Bathroom was very nice. Main seating area/dinging was very open, comfortable, and had great views. Lots of nice furniture. The porch was wonderful. My daughter enjoyed waking up to the view. We loved the location and the lodge was very cozy. We loved the vintage style. Lots of blankets and the pillows looked brand new. Grill was good! Tall husband had difficulty sleeping in a full-size bed with a foot board though!”
