It sits on nearly a quarter section of treed land just waiting to be explored and enjoyed. With ponds and ATV trails, paddle boats and canoe, your family is sure to have a great holiday.
It is rare to find affordable accommodations big enough to house more than one family. That's why we are unique and one of a kind. We are typically rented by family reunion groups but we also rent to small families or groups to. . We also have a cabin that holds up to six to eight people that can be rented separately. You may look at it on vrbo.com/69699 and even another large lodge 3 km down the road that sleeps another 20 persons vrbo.com/722581 and is very lovely with great mountain views and right on the highway
