“We loved everything about our stay! The cabin was spacious for our family of four, it’s setting was idyllic. The Dirks were super attentive yet not intrusive. We are very appreciative that they allowed us to explore their land - the pond, the woods, and the vineyard. This would have been a perfect vacation even if we never left the cabin. But there was so much more within a short drive - the Giant City state park alone offered miles of gorgeous walks. If this place were closer to our home, we would be there every weekend! Thank you very much!”
This is our home office that we have converted into a studio apt. It is one block off of downtown and an easy walk to a coffee shop, pizza restaurant, and antique shop. Since it was an office we have a full desk with computer and printer if you need it. Sorry but absolutely no pets.
“This place was perfect for my daughter and myself. We were on a girl trip and wanted to travel inexpensively. This placed exceeded my expectations. It was super clean and comfortable. We were a little disappointed the coffee shop wasn’t open but with the pandemic we knew everything would not be available on the trip. I would definitely recommend Bradley’s place!”

“We had a lovely stay for our family of four, nearly 4 weeks at Tricia and Randy’s. The house description is very accurate, and the house is an excellent value. There are so many amenities. Our favorite spot in the house was the screened porch. It was wonderful to curl up with a blanket on colder or rainy days, or set up a game of chess or eat el fresco on sunny days. The lake is peaceful, we really enjoyed exploring the alcoves on the kayaks. The birds are amazing, too. Our hosts were very quick to respond when we asked for area recommendations. Thank you!”
