Bob and Kathie have a lovely home on a small lake. We had a delightful experience at our first AirBnb. Our hosts were gracious and welcoming, and made us feel comfortable from the start. The second floor suite (bedroom, bathroom and sitting/tv room) gave us privacy, and the open layout of the first floor allowed us to easily interact with Bob and Kathie on our way out in the morning, or when we returned in the evening. It was fun getting to know them. We would definitely recommend this location.

This house is a gem. It's clean as can be, comfortable, and quiet. In addition to a clean and spacious room, it has a comfortable sitting area with chair, cable television and CD player. There are few places I've stayed that are as comfortable. And the hosts are gems too. Their courtesy and warmth is every bit as nice as the lodging.

This dry comfortable, immaculate, spacious home was terrific for an overnight stay while doing business in the area. The location at lakeside in a state park is picturesque. The hosts are warm and welcoming. The room was quiet allowing for a restful stay.

Can't say enough good things about this place. It was Beautiful, charming, very clean. Bob and Kathy are excellent hosts who are accommodating, friendly, and respectful. I look forward to going back in the summer when the kids and I can utilize the lake and backyard. I would stay again any time of year!

I can't say enough nice things about this stay. The hosts were accommodating to my later arrival and early departure. They were most gracious, friendly and made me feel safe. The space upstairs was exceptionally clean. It all looked brand new. The house is located on a beautiful lake that I could have taken in all day had I not had other plans. If I find myself back in this area, I would most certainly try to stay here again.
