Elayne, we had a wonderful stay. Marengo cave was great! The peaceful mornings and break away from technology was a great and needed change! The fishing........outstanding! We caught 140 fish in 2 days! 65 in one evening! We released all but 6 to fry them. One big bass!! Thank you for the bread and hospitality! We left you some sunflower seeds from our farm to plant. They are smaller with amazing colors! Hope you enjoy!

P.S. We used only red worms and wax worms to catch fish!

We had wonderful two week break. Very peaceful and relaxing. The cottage is like a time capsule, transporting you back to a simpler time. It has all the things you need but nothing to spoil the tranquility. We enjoyed sitting on the deck and watching the large variety of birds. On warmer nights we were treated to a light show from the fireflies. We caught lots of fish, more than 50 a day on some days. Biggest Bass was around 16", most of them around the 8" to 12" range. Lots of bluegill too. All were released. Bass were mainly caught on crank lures around the edge. Bluegill mainly on worms.

Wow! What a beautiful cabin and surroundings. Our stay was short, but we will be back. Thank you Elayne, for your hospitality and the bread was wonderful. It paired up with the chicken salad I made. It was delicious. I must mention that I love your art work. What a treasure!

Thank you for the beautiful well kept clean and comfortable!! You certainly excel at inn keeping! We enjoyed having the wonderful warm cabin to return to after our adventures in the area. The delicious bread made our breakfasts special and coffee on the porch was a treat, as the variety of birds joined us at the feeder. The turkeys were great to watch, too!! The lake is lovely! We hope to see you again the future.

My husband and I came from N. Ky. to get away for our 2nd anniversary, (even tho we are "seniors"). Anyway, we really love this cabin and the seclusion, (no airplane noise!) Joe loves to fish, (I don't), but he thought I had to catch one so he cast it out, handed it to me and right away a very large bluegill was landed. No small feat, it was a heavy fighter! He caught many fish and assures me he knows how to remove the hook without hurting the fish! Thank you Elayne for giving us the opportunity to unplug and enjoy your woods, lake and cabin!

We have enjoyed staying at your peaceful, cozy cabin. Just what I need. It was very relaxing. Loved the hummingbirds. I enjoyed the porch swing as well. My husband enjoyed the fishing. Thanks for your homemade bread. It was delicious.

Thank you, Elayne, for sharing your beautiful piece of property. My girlfriend brought me here for my birthday to just get away for a little and also because I love bass fishing. Everything about it was perfect. No service, no wifi, just relaxing with my ole lady and catching tons of fish. One morning I caught 10 bass in two hours; most of them were caught directly across from the dock on that opposite bank. There's a ridge in the water and a lot of them seem to be hanging out on either side of it. Most of our fish were caught using a Texas rig with either a blue or green crawler, tip for you other bass pros. Also the fish are beautiful and healthy! Thanks again.

This was the first fishing trip my brothers and I have had with our father in 20 years! We used to go fishing every weekend as kids. So much fun! Thank you for sharing this lovely cabin!

Dear Elayne, Me and my mom and dad had so much fun here and we hope to come back soon. The boats were my favorite. I have one suggestion, put a lock on the bathroom please (there is one!) I loved fishing even though we didn't catch that much we still had an awesome time and we hope you have a wonderful day.

Elayne - Thank you for the bread! It was lovely with coffee and the birds in the morning. We came down (over) from Philadelphia to celebrate a 50th birthday and relax. We spent the first few days with friends and enjoyed the week by ourselves. Fred enjoyed the fishing on the lake, the boat was great. The porch was wonderful to sit on all day, reading and listening to music. You have a special property! We really enjoyed our stay!

Elayne, thank you for the sumptuous bread. We had a great relaxing time in this beautiful cain. I could live in one like this - so comforting. We felt at home here and the enjoyment of watching the birds and squirrels and chipmunks was a lot of fun. Those two hummingbirds are characters - funny. The fishing was great, enjoyed our meals - yummy. Hope to be able to come back again. God's blessings.

What a peaceful get-away! A gem hidden in the woods on a tranquil lake. We thoroughly enjoyed sitting on the deck, swinging and hearing the beautiful chimes and chirps of the birds. We were delighted by the numerous birds and variety of birds. Thank you for letting us (encouraging us) to feed the birds. We also enjoyed fishing on the lake, watching the geese and spying some turtles. Thank you for the opportunity to experience this little slice of heaven along with a tasty loaf of bread!
