We had an amazing vacation. Bernie went above and beyond what was asked. He made our stay very comfortable and accommodating. The house was great for our needs. Could have been a little cleaner but it was perfect for our rustic vacation :). The home has everything you may need including sunscreen, contact solution, toothpaste, etc just invade you forget something. Bernie even supplied us with life jackets for the kids and gave us a pontoon ride. We plan on doing it again next year. Thank you again for the amazing memories.
The property was great - small private sandy beach, warm water in the lake, large yard, swing set for the kids, fire pit and great weather! The neighbors were great - provided life jackets for our kids, helped clean up the beach, offered a boat ride and let us know about what was nearby, The house was ok - nice living room and bedrooms, but the bathroom and kitchen could have used some updating and a bit more of a cleaning. Definitely a good place to enjoy a nice summer weekend.
Very friendly and accomodating host! The place was really cozy and just what we were hoping for a relaxing weekend with friends. Neighbors are super friendly and even shoveled some of the snow for us!! Will definitely be back! Thanks a lot!!
This place is quite nice. We we're greeted by a friendly guy named Chad, he showed us around and helped us put the rowboat in the lake. What a cool guy. The part of the lake that the home is located on is calm so the fishing was very peaceful. My buddy and I both caught a fish (small bass, keeper bluegill) totally awesome! We really enjoyed the clear night sky, the fresh air and the overall calm laid back setting of it all. Sweet spot, we'll definitely be back!
We were greeted by a friendly neighbor who opened up the place for us and showed us around. Everything went very smoothly. The town it is near is very quiet and remote. The lake was lively with some very exciting fireworks but they died down as to not disturb our sleep The house itself is simple but has everything needed for a relaxing time.
Laura and her friend Laura are wonderful people and it was great getting to know them. Laura is very interesting, well traveled and I really enjoyed sharing stories. She is the perfect Airbnb guest!
This review is for Laura, Charles's daughter, and she and her friend were everything other reviewers said and more. In other words, she was the perfect guest. She will be welcome in my small and humble apartment any time she chooses to drive again, all the way to California from Florida. She is an adventuresome and brave young lady. Hats off to Laura and her friend.
Charles' daughter was our guest and she was wonderful! Fit right in with the laid back style of the Retreat House and was a pleasure to have around.
Charles' daughter, Laura, was a fantastic guest! She's well-traveled and a perfect example of the nomad I try to be.
She shared a room with two other guests, and we all got along really well! I hosted a bit of an impromptu wine-and painting night in the living room, and while the muses didn't whisper in her ear that night, we all enjoyed her company and input on our pieces.
I'd love to see Laura again, and hope her travels take her back this way soon!
If you get a reservation under Charles and the reservation is for Chalres' daughter Laura, you will find that Laura is social, knowledgable about travel lodging, and a great person to meet and host. Laura always had a smile; we had some great laughs!
This is actually a review for Charles' daughter-Laura. She is a wonderful woman and guest. She is quiet, considerate, everything was left in perfect shape. We had a great conversation about travel, housing, alternative lifestyles and she was helpful in sharing her favorite websites. We highly recommend her as a guest and hope to see her again.

Laura, the daughter of Charles, was very friendly, kind and respectable guest to our home. She was fun to converse with; considerate to share some helpful links akin to our interests; sympathetic & understanding of a malfunction of our Wi-Fi on her last night. We would gladly welcome her to our home again anytime in the future.
Laura was a wonderful guest. She was very thoughtful and quiet. We had some nice morning conversations and she kept everything neat and tidy. I highly recommend her to any Airbnb host.
Laura, who is Charles daughter, was an excellent tenant. She was a thoughtful and generous guest, offering to replace a smoke alarm battery that started chirping during her stay.She observed all the house rules and left the house in good condition. She will be most welcome if she ever wishes to return.
Laura and Annie were great guests. I so enjoyed having them here, and would welcome them any time.
