I booked this cabin at least 4 months in advance. My sister and her husband were coming for a month from Australia, so the planning and cabin had to be perfect. I was sold by the pictures on the website and from talking to Diane on the phone. She was very laid back and I could tell from talking with her for at least an hour or more on our first phone conversation, she truly wanted to make sure we had a great time and relaxed. When we arrived, the cabin was clean, with many new upgrades, kitchen was beautiful, all the windows in the cabins were upgraded and clean and bright. The kitchen and bathrooms were well- stocked. The inside of the refrigerator was immaculate.. The kitchen area was tight, but we managed as my own kitchen is tight as well. I viewed many other cabins before choosing Serenity Nest, but was afraid they would smell as old as they and looked due to the very old furniture and afghans and bedding shown in the photos. I was able to bring Jack and Isabella my two little four-legged children which was a must. The outside deck was amazing. We sat out there 2 days and nights and watched the birds and squirrels though binoculars we brought. The second morning we were there, we went to the local ACE hardware to purchase fishing licenses. The locals were friendly and gave us advice on the best places on the lake to fish. We caught 4 large trout and at least 30 small trout and Blue Gill between the six of us in one afternoon. We enjoyed our time at Serenity Nest and Diane's easy going nature. I would definitely book Serenity Nest again. I was actually able to relax and spend a day fishing and not worry about work. That's a first. Thank you for the down time!
Thank you for choosing Serenity Nest! We know there are many vacation homes to choose from.
That view is amazing from the deck isn't it?!? When Bill and I saw it, we knew we wanted to be a part of it. To share our home with others, to share that gift (the view) is such a privilege.
I was so excited for your visit, I felt like I was there with you all.
I am so delighted you caught so many fish! That must have been so much fun.
Come again soon!

Well, this cabin getaway was supposed to be planned months ago, but of course procrastination had us scrambling at the last minute for a cabin capable of fitting us all (2 adults, 4 kids and 2 fur babies). We were left with very few options but Serenity nest which I had been looking at awhile ago was still available and fit our needs perfectly. Diane was great in getting us arranged just a couple of days before we wanted to arrive. And it was so quick and easy dealing with the rental agreement and payment. So the cabin is way up there on the mountain(in my flatlander opinion) but what a beautiful view it is up there. The road up is kind of winding and was a little scary for me (I'm a wuss and was white-knuckling it the whole way). It's kind of narrow, more than enough room for one vehicle but not much for turnouts if you came across another vehicle. Suprisingly though we never encountered another vehicle and we left the cabin quite a bit so that was a relief! The cabin had great parking and was enough room for both our cars (tip: park at an angle, makes pulling out a breeze!) the cabin looked just like the pics. Kind of a long stairway but no snow no big deal. Love that everything was so fresh and bright in the cabin, not dark and gloomy like some I had come across. Kitchen was a little tight but enough for the both of us to work in. They had everything we needed, pots, pans, crock pot, plates, cups etc....made packing a breeze, just food and clothes but we did bring a rice cooker and veggie steamer. Loved having a washer and dryer available just in case. The main bedroom was very spacious with a queen bed and we also brought a queen size air mattress and there was more than enough room. Kids loved sleeping in the bunk bed room. Gets pretty tight in there when the 3rd bed is pulled out, but kids didn't care! Loved all the windows in the house and all the light they allow in but would like a little more cover in the main bedroom as it gets a little too bright early in the morning. Had so much fun there and can't wait to return! Hopefully with snow! Thanks for sharing your home with us Zeman Family!!
You were easy to have as a guest too! We are so happy you could make it. Our road... Indeed has personality, fortunately you may see only 1-3 cars per weekend. I call that road to the house Mr. Toads Wild Adventure Ride...(Disney Land).
We look forward to having you in the winter! Bring chains for your tires ... :)

From the day I was in contact with the owner Diane this experience was so smooth, Diane provides everything you need to make your stay nothing short of amazing. When i arrived with my wife and 3 children we were all stunned by this beautiful property and it's views.We originally planned to arrive at the cabin and head upward for some snow, plans changed when we saw the amount of snow on the property and the convenience of the sled's on the property. My family had a great time playing in the snow and when it came time to come in we made use of the board games handy and the twister very fun, the wife is already looking forward to our next trip to this cabin.Thank you Diane for opening your home to me and my family and making us feel as if it were our own.
Thank you for such kind words. I do believe words are so powerful and that they carry life and death to one another. You had a beautiful time because you deserved it! I get excited with you and the families that get to enjoy the gift we have been given! I get amazed at the view myself !!! Reminds me their is more to behold outside of myself.
We hope to see you and all of yours again soon. Mi Casa es Su Casa.

This was a perfect vacation place for us--reasonable rate, very clean, no t.v., radio, or telephone--Just trees, birds, and lake an enjoyable 5-minute walk. The owner provided wholesome DVDs/videos (there was that provision) and even left two complimentary bottles of wine in the fridge.

Thank you Diane and Bill for sharing your Serenity Nest with My family and I. We had a wonderul time. So nice to get away for the hustle and bustle of every day life. The views from the cabin are beautiful. Very pretty sunsets! The owners have done a great job making it feel like a home away from home.

Diane is the best! She is the most trusting person I have ever met. Her hospitality was wonderful. "Serenity Nest" is the perfect name for this wonderful "hideaway".Our family would like to thank you for sharing your "cozy" home with us. We had a great time celebrating my 40th birthday in your home. We look forward to coming back soon. Cuevas Family!

How special! We loved the place & the owners. My hubby & I went for a getaway, were able to have 2 nights away, but this whet our appetites for another stay...we are going back! I might even do a girls getaway too. Our ride up was great but if you have a large SUV be sure let the owners know so they can give you the best driving directions. We so enjoyed the entire place & loved sitting on the deck watching the sunset, enjoying our coffee, the perfect weather, and each other! It was like home away from home, the decorating was so up to date and pleasing to the eye...it even smelled good!

The cabin was absolutely perfect. Secluded, but not too far from the lake and town. The house was nice and cozy... we felt right at home. Overall it was a very enjoyable experience
September 1, 2009
We found the cabin to be very, very nice and clean and full of wonderful little details that the owner supplies which make you feel right at home. She was super flexible and trusting and we were honored to stay at her place. She did all in her means to go out of her way to make things easy, especially when I realized I'd left some stuff behind and she mailed it out to me no extra cost, in spite of my offer to pay for my mistake. How often does that happen? Great space and owner.

Very secluded with a beautiful view. Enjoyed the patio and the quiet environment. Both bedrooms downstairs and comfy. Kitchen was a little tight for more than two people to work in. The cabin was very clean and inviting with special touches. The local dog, "Buddy Bear" was a nice addition too. We will be going back soon.

We loved this place. It is enchanting, quiet, romantic, and just lovely. We fell in love with the beautiful view and the peacful sorroundings, and we especially fell in love with the wonderful neighborhood greeter, Buddy! (Toothless pitbull). In addition, the place was very clean and as mentioned in other reviews, very well stocked, down to complimentary chocolate, tea, coffee and lotions, to immaculately clean and cozy. By the way, the masterbedroom bed was heavenly! We will definitely be back!

We couldn't be more pleased with this wonderful cottage. Bright, sunny, cheerful, and spotlessly clean, it had all we could ask for. The furnishings are simple and lovely, the beds are heavenly, and the view is fantastic. And the owners are wonderful too! We will definitely be back!!
