Great location
90% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
This house is located outside Alden. It sits on 35 acres and is 1/4 of a mile from the road. The location is rural, secluded and quiet. There is ample parking for boats and recreational vehicles. The view from the deck is spectacular, you can see out over 10 miles. It's private and has a wide wraparound deck, with a covered area at the front. It's perfect for grilling, relaxing and watching the sky after a day out. The kitchen is open and provides ample space for food preparation.

The space
There was a bad storm on August 11 and the driveway was destroyed. We are using a new driveway through the field that leads to the house. It is a mowed two-track that has been a reliable alternate that we have used in the winter. Message me if you have questions about access.

This house was built by my father after he retired. He enjoyed ten years of retirement here. I like the idea of sharing with others this beautiful space he created.

The house faces a five-acre pasture that supports two horses in the summer. You may meet my sister, Julie, in the morning when she waters the horses. With deer, horses, sandhill cranes, ground squirrels, the occasional eagle, various wildbirds, and upland sandpipers, there is a lot of animal watching to do from the deck.

The house does not have cable or internet. The TV does have a digital antenna.

The kitchen is stocked with nonperisable essentials (Salt, pepper, sugar, dishwashing soap).

I have listed that AC is available. I have a window unit. Since the house isn't that big, it works really well. Fortunately, the nights during the summer are mild and it's not needed a lot of the time.
