The entire stay was very peaceful pleasant and hotly received from the owner of the property never have I ever been received From a property owner In such a warm welcoming way however I must say I will look forward to stay with this property owners property at any given time And very often.

5/5 Excellent

Very relaxing and wonderful stay
Property was great. Being lakefront was great. We were able to fish off the dock. Boat rental available but we did not partake in that. House was very clean with everything you would need. Lots of fun things to do in the area but it is very rustic. You will find everything you need within a 1520 minute drive. The owners were wonderful and very accessible. They offered a ton of great suggestions for us I would definitely return to this property.

5/5 Excellent

Nice getaway
We enjoyed our stay at the lake house. Great property! Big roomy house with a nice dock and firepit. Owners were very responsive and took care of everything we needed.

5/5 Excellent

Making memories!
We had a wonderful time at the "cottage" as our grandkids called it! Very clean & spacious. Plenty of room to spread out! The kitchen was well stocked & had everything we needed! We caught a few bluegills off the dock. It was a great location to explore Ferne Clyffe , Giant City State Park & Boo Rockman Memorial Dragon Park.! The grandkids caught their fist fish at the Carbondale Reservoir! We all loved waking up to the beautiful view of the water! The area was very quiet.. The firepit was a hit for smores! We would definitely stay here again! Thanks for the memories!

5/5 Excellent

The perfect escape
We LOVED this property, and we'll definitely be back. We needed a little escape from our own house, as well as some outdoor time. The cabin was perfect for my husband, two daughters and I. The girls loved the bunk beds and all the area to play. The view was spectacular. The kitchen had everything we needed. It was right in the middle of all the hiking trails we wanted to visit - Garden of the Gods and Rim Rock were both about an hour away, but well worth it. We can't wait to go back in the summer to kayak and swim. I've been sharing their card with everyone! Thanks to Heather and Jeff for such a wonderful experience.
