Came for fall foliage and wine trail was a great bonus. House was clean , well equipped , nice quiet location surrounded by trees and within a few miles of Shawnee wine trail . Used the fire pit (bring wood)in evening to enjoy the stars and the beautiful surrounding. Huge deck for entertaining. Hope to rent again next year when trees have little more color .

Great place to stay when visiting the Shawnee Wine Trail. Off the beaten path, but closest to our favorite wineries on the trail. Owners were always easy to get in contact with to answer all my questions. Highly recommend staying here.

A bit on he back roads , but that's why its nice and quite . Before you get to close to the property , make sure you have the access code . I had no cell service and no code when I got to property . I had to drive a ways to try to contact owner for code , he had never sent it , it was now 40 mins. after check in time . If you plan on a fire outdoors, make sure you bring your own wood .

The location is remote and excellent. Beautiful grounds both open fields and wooded, with wildlife. We saw a few deer with a fawn and a ground hog and baby bunny hanging around. The frog pond was awesome, yet the frogs were not noisy at all in the evening (unexpected!). A hooting owl woke me the first night but I got the box fan out of my closet and ran it to drown it out. We lunched once at the winery/restaurant a few miles north, which was a nice experience and very affordable. Both must see state parks are within 20 minutes. One day we road tripped a ~130 mile loop out to Garden of the Gods, Pounds Hollow and Cave in Rock for some rather easy hikes. Rain was forecast all three days of our stay but we got lucky it never rained while we were hiking and only a few light showers otherwise. There is also more challenging hiking nearby (Little Grand Canyon, Bell Smith Springs) but we are getting a bit too old for that. House was clean and well stocked, beds were comfortable. The basement bedroom had just a bit of an odor, my brother preferred to sleep upstairs on the couch instead, which he found quite comfortable. The gas grill worked fine but it is getting to be on its last legs (the bottom is rusting through). If you want to use the fire pit you may need to bring firewood (some shops in the area sell bundles) but also don't forget to bring some newspaper along and/or lighter fluid. We forgot to bring anything - we wanted to do a weenie roast for a lunch. All in all a great experience. We've been doing a family reunion/getaway like this once a year this was our fifth one. So far every place has been really good. Sure beats motels.
