This cabin setup near the lake is the perfect couples get away. If you're looking for a place to be left alone while you observe nature, this is it. We were never bothered by anyone. The wildlife is abundant, the deer were right outside of the bathroom window each morning and the donkeys were friendly as can be. The hosts were polite and helpful with anything we needed. We enjoyed not having to go find food, but instead grill while overlooking the grassy field. We will look forward to returning in the future.

We loved staying at the Dal Nonna cabin for our first anniversary. The cabin had everything we needed, and we loved how secluded and peaceful it was. The location is great too, just a few minutes from the beautiful Krause Springs and several wineries. I would definitely recommend this cabin!

My husband and I stayed at the Chanticleer Log Cabin for our one year anniversary. It was so serene and relaxing. I could not think of any other way to have spent our anniversary. The owners were also very friendly and we loved getting to interact with the donkeys. I would recommend this cabin to any and everyone I know!

This is the perfect little get away for any couples looking to reconnect or just want a romantic weekend without the kids. Rustic and cozy, loved the screened in porch for morning coffee, laying in the hammock and enjoying the cool breeze. My husband and I loved it. Would definitly go back and would highly recommend it to anyone else. The owners were always just a phone call away for any questions and were very accomodating. A+++

My husband and I stayed in Villa Celeste. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The cabin was comfortable, clean, and well-stocked. The swimming pool was cold and refreshing after sunning on the deck. We also enjoyed the hot tub! L.C. and Mallonee were very friendly and helpful. We will be back!!

We had a wonderful stay in both Villa Celeste and Villa Stellata with our boys, who are heading to Navy Boot Camp. It was just perfect, with EVERYONE perfectly comfortable in their own bed and bathroom! My husband and I had a beautiful room overlooking the pool. The hot tub was very nice after a day of zip-lining! Sitting in the hot tub watching the stars was so romantic!

We spent our 1 yr anniversary here at the Villa Stellata and it was the perfect place to get away from all the hustle and bustle. Very relaxing with the hot tub and we cooked steaks on the grill with the company of old smokey :) thank you for making our getaway a great memory and a place we look forward to visiting again.

Our stay was amazing. We arrived on a chilly, rainy Friday in the middle of March, midday. We were so excited since it was our first time to a cabin. Everything at view was so warm and cozy. My husband immediately wanted to go see the donkeys, which at first frightened me but they were very sweet. A few hours later, we drive to the town near by to buy some steaks and shrimp. By the time we reached the driveway, the only light came from the headlights. As we pulled onto the dirt road, deer from left to right covered the entire field. It was incredible. We arrived to the cabin, prepared dinner, and made a fire. Saturday came unexpectedly. We enjoyed several games of horseshoes and sat on the porch most of the day. The night was filled with flashing lights and roars from the thunder. We turned off all the outsides lights and watch the electrical chaos under the it began to pour. All in all, very relaxing, very enjoyable, and definitely a place to return.
