In the winter raptors abound and viewing the daily flights of the eagle is easy and breathtaking. Lounge in front of the fireplace, or snowshoe along the river or get lost in a book you've meaning to read.

I orginally reserved the Serenity Cottage for my stay, but my brother-in-law is extremely allergic to all animals so when I talked to Donna about the cleaning she said that we could stay in the Heron House instead which is right next door because the Heron House has hardwood floors throughout instead of carpet like in the Serenity Cottage. She even gave us a discount even though it was my fault that I didn't notice the pet friendly sign. The Heron House was ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!! We went for my birthday & honestly it was the best birthday EVER!! I hope to make this a tradition!!

This adorable cottage is cozy and tranquil. The location is beautiful and the weekend we were there the colors were amazing. The wooded area is full of wildlife and Donna added alot of fun touches for the season----ghosts along the drive in and Japanese lantern flowers in the window boxes. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Serenity Cottage.

Maureen and Kent

Back for our 3rd time and lovin' it! Thanks for another wonderful stay in the Serenity Cottage. We had a great time as always. Loved the campfire at night, fireplace and of course the hot tub. We were a bit late this year to truly experience the fall colors, but had a great time still! Looking forward to coming back in February for some snowshoeing.

Cathy and Kevin

Had a wonderful time. Thank you for sharing some of the history of this great place. The name "Serenity Cottage" is a perfect name for the place. This place and time will always stay in my memories. Thank you for EVERYTHING I loved it !! I'll be back .


Had a wonderful and relating time. I hope to return for a longer stay in the near future.

Genesis and Miles

Thank you for sharing this cottage. It was what I see when someone says they have a cottage (not these mansions they build today). It was the perfect getaway. This was the first weekend of my 2 week vacation from California. It was nice to leave the heat of summer and come to fall. The cottage made a great home base for visiting Marinette and Oconto. So much nicer to come relax here than sit in a hotel room. We loved the decor! This was a wonderful start to a vacation.

Thank you Lee, Pat and Mariann

A wonderful peaceful location to spend several days "away from it all." Loved every minute and will be back.

Marcus and Franklin

What a wonderful place!We really enjoyed our stay here - the cottage, the river, the trees...

Thank you for new traditions. We have been coming up every year for quite some time staying in various local motels and this by far was the best year yet and now our new yearly get away spot. We will always be here

We had a wonderful stay here and a true experience of serenity. What a taste of heaven! Your welcoming spirit and nature will continue to grow in the life of memories we've created and the gifts of creation that you have shared with us. A piece of this place will remain with me and each new spring I will envision its beauty as I am reminded of the still and quiet life within the perennials. This gift will keep giving and we thank you for this lovely experience and opportunity for renewal and thanksgiving.

We really enjoyed our stay at Serenity! Even with the rain we still had lots of fun with the river views and bird watching. We saw a bald eagle flying overhead carrying a fish within a half hour of our arrival.

Snow this morning was beautiful. Love the fireplace, cable and quilts! The dog bed was well loved also. :)

Michael, Melissa and Daisy

Thank you so much for the wonderful place to stay. My husband and I had a wonderful weekend cozied up in the cabin. We had such a great time snowshoeing and ice skating on the rover and the hot tub was a great way to end our days. Duke had a blast running through all of the snow. We really appreciate all of the little "extras" -the hearts, flowers, etc. It really made for a wonderful Valentine's Day weekend. Thank you for everything.

Tim, Allison and Duke

Thank you for a warm and comfortable place to spend a weekend with our Mom. The fireplace was so nice to have to keep us cozy, the hot tub was great and being away from the hustle and bustle was just what the doctor ordered! We will be back. Thanks for all the charm and personality we were looking for to spend precious time together.

Mary Ann, Char and Kathy

Amazing Fall colors and peacefulness made this an extra special getaway for us. We will definitely be back! Thank you for all the little niceties, special touches and stories.


Jan and Sue

Thank you for the wonderful long weekend of garden walks and bike rides; lounging bu the river and campfires under the stars. We even got Georgia in the river for a little bit! Thank you for your hospitality and your assistance with directions, bike tire inflation, etc. We had lots of fun!

The Girls - Anne, Erin, Sara and Georgia

Thank you for offering this place to stay. It has been my artist's retreat and a place of great inspiration and peace. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.


We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Serenity Cottage. It was just the place for us to get away from the "busy"ness of everyday life and relax. Carter loved the dog bed and our son, Kaden, loved all the wooden spoons and the bubble wand, "sticks" as he called them.

We just wanted to thank you so much for allowing us to stay at the Serenity Cottage. It was absolutely awesome - the time went by all too fast.
