Guestbook comments from the owner:
This is by far the most incredible spot I have rented. There has been so much love and attentiveness dedicated to this space, and it is evident from the moment you enter the property. I only stayed one day, but I could easily have stayed contentedly for weeks and weeks. The cabin itself was breathtaking, featuring the most perfect soaking tub with a picturesque view of the trees; a spacious, open kitchen with more than plenty necessities; the most charming bedroom; and an abundance of spots to cozy up. I was fortunate enough to have my dog get to travel with me, and we had the best time exploring the property. The outdoor pavilion makes for the most serene resting place. I know I’ll be back, and I’m so excited to share my next adventure here with friends.

We enjoyed our stay. There was anything and everything available in the kitchen. Best I've found at any airbnb. The towels are great and the shower is wonderful although the step was a bit high. The area is lovely with many birds and flowers. A little noise from the street which was surprising but not disturbing. Cabin is set up for a couple but we made it work for our family. Best suited for couples and small children. The large yard is well fenced and the dogs enjoyed it. There are many seating areas and a large fire pit and grill available. There are many parks and recreation areas nearby and the beach is about an hour drive away.
We absolutely fell in love with this place! The pictures do not do it justice! The decor is amazing. The beds, sheets, towels and pillows are the most comfy I've seen anywhere. The bathroom is magical, straight out of a fairy tale. The kitchen is completely stocked for your home cooking needs. The living area is lovely and spacious. The reading materials are especially excellent. The yard is impeccable. We had a gorgeous fire under the full moon in the large fire pit. The chair swing was so much fun for the kids and adults! If we could live here, we would! Absolutely will be back. Her Communication was completely helpful throughout our entire visit. Anything we needed she answered. Can't say enough great things! Thank you!
The Love Lodge absolutely blew us away! The photos simply don’t do it justice, the cabin is beautiful inside and out. Our dog Callie loved the extremely spacious yard, and it was very convenient that it was completely enclosed. The Love Lodge gives you the feeling of camping in the woods without losing any of the amenities that come in a typical home. We enjoyed grilling our dinner on the BBQ and baking cookies in the oven! The swing and hammocks were so fun, and the cabin was extremely well-decorated. My roommates and I fell in love with this very sweet cottage and even joked about wanting to own a place exactly like this one. I highly recommend staying here if you’re looking for an adorable getaway!
