Reviews

Can’t tell you how glad we were to find this place to rent on the Internet. Not an easy task to find a place for 14 people. The “barn” is comfy and cozy. Plenty of space for all of us to find a place to hang out and do our thing. The color tour we took at this time of year is incredible. We all remarked on our favorite colors (our son thought green was the best) - even our 3 year old woke up asking if we were staying another day. Thanks for your hospitality. Todd, Val, Gordon - Guest book comment.
Let me tell you what a beautiful house. The lake and Jumper was fun. The walk to the lake was good exercise. We saw Frankfort and lots more. We went shopping -(fun). Even watched the sunset. Enjoyed the fire pit, boat and paddleboat. We went to Frankfort beach, good waves. We had a blast! Family guest book comment
