Covid Getaway!
My husband and I wanted to be able to take a trip within driving distance of our Kansas City area home and chose this VRBO property so we would feel safer than we might have in a hotel with a lot of other people. The house is very nice and is located in a picturesque setting on a lake. We loved the fire pit as well as the scenery with the changing colors of the trees in early October. The home is as advertised, although with just the two of us, we were only on the main level. The only complaint from either of us the whole time was that they don’t have ESPN on the big screen so we could not watch our Kansas City Chiefs play Monday night football! The kitchen is well stocked with appliances, dishes, etc. and has most everything you should need if you choose to bring food and eat there. Nathan, the VRBO owner, was always quick to answer any questions that we had via text. We would definitely recommend this property.

Prefect Location
The house is absolutely gorgeous. Both the inside and outside settings are so relaxing and offer great views of the water. We enjoyed the hot tub and the fire pit. The property is located conveniently close to downtown or near by orchards and wineries. We enjoyed the city, but found that we were drawn back to the house. We skipped the busy restaurant setting and opted to order pizzas from The Grand Pizza (highly recommended) and enjoy a fire.

Gals Getaway
This is a great place to get away with friends or family. The home is tucked back into the trees with a beautiful lake view ! It's great place for family, girls or guys get away. So many things to do.the home is tucked into the woods with a beautful view of the lake. We would have done a campfire but both evenings it was to windy. Nathan supplies everything you need for that. we still sat out there and enjoyed the beauty of the the lake and the changing of the the colors in the trees. the home is retro and very clean. We loved the the themes in the bedrooms and entire home. Great place to enjoy and relax. It is also very close to downtown Stillwater. This place will not disappoint. Thank you Nathan for everything!

October weekend
Everything was exactly as described and our stay was memorable. The layout and condition of the home was excellent and the location was ideal - just 5-7 minutes from Stillwater's lovely Main St. We particularly enjoyed the fire pit and the walking trail. Communication with Nathan was outstanding - before and during our stay.

5/5 Excellent

Great place for a girls weekend
Perfect location and nice, comfortable mid-century modern home . A great place with the privacy of the country but Still within the city of Stillwater.
