Girl's Weekend Away

May 13, 2014

The home was exactly what we needed. It's location was close enough to town but away from road and traffic. We met a lot of people who lived in Peshtigo that did not know this property was in their back yard. We were right on the river and ended up riding a pontoon boat that friends of friend owned. What a great weekend and hopefully a tradition in the making. Most of us only live 15-20 mins away but we explored this we never did before.

best quiet

October 18, 2013

We just moved up from louisiana we're from Mississippi the 4 days we stayed was nice and quiet but, I like being close to things. We're living in Marinette not far from the house at all so hope we can go stay for a weekend just to get out of town. Hope to make it to Chicago maybe on a weekend to go visit my brother and his wife I think they live close to the property there. Anyone want a nice getaway this is it.

Wonderful!, the wildflowers, the wildlife, the hot tub, the view, the pool table, the hospitality for our dogs, the large kitchen and bedrooms, the solitude, I could go on. My family had a wonderful time here, the dogs didn't want to leave the pier as they so enjoyed sunning themselves there. Thanks Donna.

Relaxing weekend

February 1, 2011

Our stay at the house was amazing! Friday night it was snowing like crazy with BIG flakes so we decided to try out the hot tube. The view of the snowcovered trees and lake were like pictures from a magazine. We loved everything about the house and would come back again!

No Regrets

August 28, 2010

What a find this is! Small town living with a touch of Zen. We had everything we needed for two couples to enjoy some road biking, eating in and out, relaxing in the hot tub, and plenty of exploring. Donna is a welcome host with great stories and personality. The only draw back was that the dam was open resulting in very low water levels. So we did not get the opportunity to explore the water as much as we would have liked. We also enjoyed ourselves far too much during the day so we never got the opportunity to build a fire in the fire pit.

Heron House

Very nice, comfortable stay. The house/cabin is really comfortable and it was nice just relaxing by the fire place with the futon pulled out, and pillows stacked! Masterbedroom is very cozy, w/ beautiful natural stone shower & view of lake. Donna provides everything you need.....even bottled water. The breakfast spot she reccomends is really cute, and you can sit outside w/ a view of the lake. We had a nice time......

A perfect New Year holiday.

January 3, 2010

A world away from big city,yet all of the comforts of home and more. It's a perfect place to get away from it all. The HERON HOUSE sets back from the road right near the Peshtigo River and you would think you were in the middle of the wilderness. There is everything that you need for a holiday weekend or for a month.The resident squrials were great entertainment and Aiden loved to watch them run around the property. We recommend Heron House for anyone who wants to recharge thier batteries. Donna is a great hostess and makes sure that everything was in great order. Veeve from Bangkok loved this place and wishes he could take it back to Thailand. This was a dream come true. Because of the great internet connection at Heron House, he was able to remaine in touch with friends and family back in Thailand.We will come back again. Once again, thank you Donna and Heron House for a wonderful time. Merrill, Veeve and Aiden.

Thank you to Donna & Newton for a wonderful stay at Heron House! The property is amazing and relaxing...we very much enjoyed the decor of the house and all of the nice amenities. We especially enjoyed napping in the hammocks, cooking over the firepit and reading on the dock. We were thrilled that our dog was warmly welcomed as well. Thanks to Donna for the local information and directions. We would love to come back again someday! ~Patrick, Rebecca, Margaux & Jasper~

A final summer getaway

August 14, 2009

Thanks Donna and Newton! We had a wonderful time at the Heron House. There was plenty to do both inside and outside and the accommodations left us needing nothing. Thanks for being so extremely welcoming to both humans and pets. It was a treat being able to bring the dog.




week of fun

Our stay was great. Our kids loved the fire pit outside and the house was roomy enough for all of us. Donna is an excellent host and we would definitely stay again.
