Peaceful getaway!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the cabin. Barbara greeted us right as we arrived and provided us with an area map and showed us local restaurants and beach access points. Our cabin was within 10-15 minutes of every surrounding town and close to all breweries, wineries, shopping, and hiking. The cabin is only a short 1 minute walk to the lake access! We took floats and just hung out in the clear water... it is definitely worth it to rent a pontoon boat for the day. Barbara's cabins are so peaceful and quiet with beautiful wildflowers. We loved grilling out and sitting in the hammocks or by the fire. We will definitely be back again!!!

Lovely quiet cabin in the woods!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great home base for exploring the area. Barbara was super helpful is getting us acquainted with the cabin itself and for opportunities for activities and dining nearby. The cabin is nice and neat and it was great to be able to hang outside in the patio area and the screened porch. I would highly recommend to a couples getaway!

Peaceful and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in Barbara's cabin. Its cozy, quaint and just right for a couple. The location is great for a nice bike ride and a very short walk to the lake. You feel miles away with the quietness of the surrounding woods but yet close to the lake. The road has very little traffic and sleeping with windows open was perfect. Barbara is a fantastic host where the communication was above par. The meet and greet left us with more than enough recommendations for dining, lake fun, and places to go. She recommended a great place to rent kayaks that delivered them to us and picked them up from her place the next day. I was also greeted a birthday card and treat which was so thoughtful! Barbara truly goes above and beyond expectations of any host we have ever stayed with. We hope to return next year! Thank you!

Comfortable, Cozy, and Great Location

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I brought our boat up to Torch Lake for the week of July 4 and wanted a place that was close to the lake and in a cozy setting. The cabin was perfect for us and I had room to keep my boat on the property. The boat ramp is only 1.5 miles away from the cabin and the setting is beautiful! Heavily wooded and gorgeous flower gardens. The cabin was decorated so creatively and we just loved our time there. One of the best views was waking up in the morning and having coffee in bed and just keeping the front door open - could see the flower garden and the beauty of the morning. Thanks Barb for such a great place and your attentiveness.
