“The Sugar River behind the apartment is a Bonus. The Hideaway is just that, a hideaway, disguised from the street as a dark storefront, but a stylish apartment awaits within. The space is super versatile, with three bedrooms, nicely separated from each other so individuals could easily retreat when they felt a nap coming on. In addition, there’s a comfy leather sectional couch, a fold-out futon near the view of the river to the back, and a couple of air mattresses. We used all three bedrooms and the occasional couch, and everyone was cozy and comfortable (though the rooms in the back of the house do run a little chilly in the wintertime). The full kitchen, though a little tight, had pretty much everything we needed in a well thought out layout. All full sized appliances worked beautifully and are in near new condition. All we had to bring were some larger pots, a roasting pan and a couple of serving pieces to cook and serve our thanksgiving dinner. We could not have pulled this gathering off in most other short term rental apartments. This was a great experience and one of the nicest AirBnB I’ve stayed in. Best of all, we didn’t have to leave our dogs behind. (They’re well behaved so there was no fear of damage.) The kitchen has plates and utensils for 5, which we supplemented with a few more platters and cooking supplies. For normal meals, what was supplied would have worked just fine. Dish TV was great for the occasional movie, a table and four chairs in the dining area large enough for sit-down dinners, and the sectional with coffee table worked for board games. There were plenty of towels, blankets, linens, pillows and spare shampoo, conditioner and lotion. We would definitely stay again. Looking forward to trying this place in the summertime, when you can kayak down the river, with the canoe livery half a block away— too cold to open in November but looks like so much fun in the warmer weather!! Just looking at the river from the large sliding glass door was relaxing. Checkin and leaving the keys where we found them upon checkout was easy as pie. There were even a few beer tokens left for us for the bar/restaurant next door, but we were so busy cooking and visiting we really didn’t have time to check it out.”
Historic log cabin nestled in the woods overlooking Decatur lake.
“Cute, clean cabin with plenty of room. The decks off the cabin & on the pier are wonderful places to hang out & the screened-in porch is amazing! The host was extremely responsive to questions asked. No mosquitoes at all in October & the wood stove rocked, keeping the cabin toasty all weekend. Host provided more than enough firewood for the chilly (under 30 degrees at night) weekend. So happy that this was a pet-friendly offering - our dogs had the best time ever. (No fault of the host, but if you bring a dog watch for old broken bottles in the woods). We enjoyed our visit & would look forward to returning.”

“I needed a break from city life & the little cottage was the perfect quiet retreat. As an apartment dweller, I enjoyed being a weekend “home owner”. Everything was clean & tidy with charming vintage touches. Heather was easy to communicate with & very helpful. I also enjoyed NOT having a tv, listening to cds or nothing at all. Good to disconnect, I slept like a log. And had a great time exploring near by towns, apple orchards, & pumpkin patches.”
