The serenity and beauty of this establishment made our tedious 850 mile treck from Inianaplolis disappear completely.  Kathryn, an excellent hostess and " tour guide" made us feel right at home from the first minute of our arrival.  Our four day stay went way too fast!  What a wonderful break from our hot Houston TX home.  It's a pleasure to pay for services that are offered with such sincerity and pride!

Very relaxing We stayed 2 nights & wish we would have stayed longer. What else can you ask for, to stay in an amazing home in the middle of the woods. Walk out the door and you can snowmoble, cross country ski, ice skate, fish, enjoy nature all right there. We had a great time. Lori Hofer

This showcase must be seen to be believed!
I was absolutely astonished at how amazing this place was. Our room was so comfortable I didn't want to leave. It was like visiting friends who just happened to have the most incredible home we had ever seen.  Kathryn was the perfect hostess. We got a tour of the house, and all the creativity and attention to detail that went into building and decorating it just blew us away. The photos truly do not do it justice, and it needs to be seen to be believed.
If you are looking for something unique and off the beaten path, you won't be disappointed. It is truly a showcase.

Never again will I have to search for an awesome place to stay in northern Minnesota.  We have found the best vacation place here.    Once we arrived and saw the home I thought wow it looks amazing.  It had a very welcoming feeling I wanted to look around right away because everything was so beautiful.  Your gardens that greeted us, your entry way wowed us and the class and elegance that surrounds each space is awesome.  Our four day stay was relaxing, spoiling and a lot of fun.  We have been to several places but none that we like more than yours.   Your home is so unique and it's not something you can see any where else that]s for sure.  Everything is so perfectly put together and even though there were no real northern lights we thought your ceiling was the coolest thing ever.  We also loved the cave and  all the stained glass in the tour of the home.  You are so talented and friendly and we thank you for your hospitality.  We'll be back for sure!!!

We love it. Your color choices are unique and pleasing to the eye.  Nicely done with elegance and rusticity evenly blended.  The ceilings are incredible. The home blends together nicely, your design talents are outstanding!  We love the unique round shape that gives each room it's own personality. You certainly have incorporated the wow factor inn each and every room! Great job.
