Perfect for family vacations/reunions, girls/guys weekends, float trip lodging, holiday getaways, etc. Private in-ground pool and courtyard with outdoor fireplace available for additional daily rental. Bunkhouse for 6 also sometimes available for additional lodging-2 weeks notice.
The lodge sleeps 14 in beds. There are 4 rooms with queen beds, and 3 rooms with two twins each (6) for a total of 10 beds. Up to 6 extra guests beyond 14 are welcome to sleep on air mattress (bring your own) or in recliners, but there is a $30 one-time fee per person for extra guests. Air mattresses must not be in rooms due to fire hazard/limited space. We provide 2 towels and 2 washcloths per guest. Please bring your own beach/pool towels if you are renting the pool.
If you’re looking for a place to relax and enjoy the peacefulness of the countryside, our property is ideal. If you’re looking for a place to party, we are not ideal, as we live on-site and outside music must end at 10 pm. Our home shares the courtyard and pool area with the lodge and is connected by an exterior courtyard wall and sidewalk. The lodge has a separate covered patio overlooking the pond area.
The lodge is suitable for events, and there is a $10/person day fee for every guest on the property beyond the 14 included in the rental price. Please do not abuse this or the extra guest overnight fee by not paying for the extra guests. We live next door, and only allow groups over 14 guests/events with extra payment. If abused, you will be asked to leave promptly.
We also have a very basic bunkhouse near our wedding barn 1/4 mile away from the lodge that becomes available 2 weeks from your reservation if there is no event at the barn. It has 6 bunk beds, a sitting area, and full bathroom should you need additional lodging. We take payment for this in person at $115/night to rent this space. 2-night minimum. (Please consider this space a possible, but not guaranteed, upgrade if your group has more than 14 guests.)
The kitchen has all expected appliances, cooking, and dining utensils. There's a Kuerig and a regular coffee maker. Please bring your own coffee. Filters are provided for the large coffee pot. We don't provide pantry items or food. Please bring your own Tupperware for leftovers to take with you. 1 roll of paper towels is provided in the kitchen. There are plenty of kitchen dish clothes. There is a charcoal grill outside. (Bring your own charcoal.)
Bathrooms are supplied with 2 rolls of toilet paper each (6 total). We also provide 3 hairdryers and hand soap. Please bring your own toiletries (shampoo,conditioner, toothpaste, etc.)
All bedrooms are identical. 6 bedrooms are located upstairs with 2 large bathrooms in the center. The 3 rooms with 2 twins overlook the pool/courtyard. The 3 rooms with a queen overlook the field south of the lodge. The other queen room is on the main level next to the third bathroom. It is slightly larger than the others, but it doesn’t have a window. The rooms are not spacious, so if you have small children, the smaller the portable crib/pack and play, the better.
There’s a ping pong table, board games, corn hole set, and books for your entertainment, along with DirectTv and free wifi.
Firewood is provided for the outdoor fireplace and bonfire pit by the pond.
There are 2 extra folding tables and 4 benches under the stairwell for extra dining space. We also have a high chair and a pack-and-play.
*The pool/courtyard area with outdoor fireplace rents for $100/day from 10 am until 10 pm. It rents for $50/day on the evening of arrival (4 pm until 10 pm). Please reserve it directly with us before arrival to ensure your preferred day(s) is available and not being used by us. It opens by Memorial Day and closes in late September each year. Our pool is not heated, which is nice mid-summer, but on the cold-side otherwise. The pool patio furniture is uncovered in May with the opening of the pool and covered in October. The pool is usually cleaned on Thursdays, unless the weather requires otherwise.*
The lodge patio and it's furniture is left uncovered year round. The pedal boat is on the same schedule as the pool.
We normally have the yard mowed on Friday (weather permitting). Flowers are watered daily. Please treat all our yard/maintenance workers with respect, as they are doing their job to maintain our property to the standards we have set. Guests do not have the authority to tell them to leave.
We have a large Great Dane/Great Pyrenees mix dog named Shy. She is very friendly, good with all ages, and used to having guests. She isn't very energetic and doesn't jump, but she is likely to lay near the action or lean on you if you are outside. We also have a cat named Sweetie that spends time inside our house and out. She is very social and tolerant for a cat, and also good with all ages. At any time, there may also be a new puppy or foster dog. We have a small dog yard that can be used for new pet additions if they become a nuisance. We will only have friendly pets here. However, please do not book with us if you are uncomfortable with outside pets. We will not be on call to remove them from your presence immediately. Please make sure everyone in your group tolerates/does not have a phobia of dogs or cats as we will not remove them entirely from our property.
We don't allow other pets on the property for various reasons. No exceptions.
Washer and dryer facilities can be rented for $10/day—bring your own detergent. It is unavailable Friday-Sunday if there’s an event at the barn. They are located inside the kitchen/workroom by our wedding barn.
There are 2 large trash receptacles on the lodge patio for bagged trash.
The main floor can accommodate 5 six-foot folding tables for extra dining space for roughly another 30-34 guests. (Permanent dining table seats 6-8.) Tables, chairs, table linens, and decor can be rented for special occasions. See photos for rental prices. The extra day guest fee applies for guests over the 14 limit included in rental price. This fee is $10/guest. Set-up not included in item rentals.
There are security cameras on the property, located in the common area of the lodge, both patio spaces, and at the driveway. These are here for security and liability reasons. If you are uncomfortable with them, please do not request to book, as we are not comfortable not having them. They would only be reviewed in the event of a theft/crime/damages/suspected violation of the house rules, etc.
Please read all house rules before booking and before your visit. Please also read the direction section and house manual section upon confirming your reservation.
The lodge was originally built for our hunting guests (thus the rustic decor and taxidermy.) It's reserved October through December 20th every year for hunters. We may open some dates up depending on availability during the fall season.
