What a lovely, quiet lakeside location. Prompt communication and easygoing. Hosts are very welcoming and pet friendly. Sandhill cranes were a welcome treat. Convenient to Silver River and adjacent springs. Great spot!

We really enjoyed our stay at Keith snd Michele’s place. They were so nice and recommended beautiful places to see. The site was private and the communication with them was perfect. If you are a birder, this is the place for you. Sandhill cranes greeted us in the yard each morning. Would love to stay here again. Highly recommend.

Very beautiful, restful place to stop for the night. The owners are so nice and accommodating. The road, 177th, was a bit rugged, but totally solid. Would certainly stay here again.... even for more than one night if we had time.
