We loved our stay here! The host is very responsive and the house is in a beautiful spot.
Thank you, Sarah! It was our pleasure to work with and host you. So glad you had a great stay!
Great location! The dock is a bit to the side different than the pictures but beautiful views. It’s definitely a cabin feel!
Thanks, Keely for sharing your feedback! We appreciate it and are glad you enjoyed your stay with us.
We enjoyed our stay! About an hour drive into sister bay but the home was extremely relaxing and perfect for our group.
A beautiful home and great location! It's a secluded property with wonderful views of the lake. There is a nice lawn for fires, laying, or lawn games. The dock on the lake provides a great view, but was not ideal for swimming off (it is very high up) so we enjoyed floating in the water off the beach instead. It worked wonderfully for a ladies weekend for us.
We had a lovely time at Owl’s Nest, we specifically appreciated how fully stocked the property was, the hosts really anticipated all of our needs.
Our family had a lovely time at this lake retreat!! The house is really comfy and it had everything we needed. The dock is now in, and the screened in porch is repaired. They had an amazing game selection too! Would definitely stay here again!
The house was well cleaned and cute! Neighbors were nice and helpful. We enjoyed being right on the water for morning coffee and evening fire pits.
