The lodge was a wonderful place, perfect for reconnecting with nature, self and others. The open plan is cozy and allows for a variety of group interactions, while also providing smaller nooks for individual use. The space feels homey and the host provides an array of items for entertainment, including musical instruments, wonderful books, games and surprisingly a well stocked kitchen with everything you need to cook with and even seasonings. The lodge is constructed of wood and provides ample views out to bring nature inside. There is plenty of sunlight coming in through the many windows and there are beautifully decorative clerestory windows throughout. The roof is made of aluminum so we heard the nuts falling from the trees. We didn’t get rain during our stay but I wondered how it would feel being in the house with the sound of rain resonating throughout. The bathroom was one of my favorite places, where the toilet and shower are separated from themselves and the tub, so if you’re in a group someone can still access a portion and have privacy. The large tub is perfectly placed in front of a beautiful window that looks out to one of the garden fountains. I found it a very tranquil environment and the owner provides everything you need from bath salts, bubbles and soaps. We were only there one night so we didn’t get to explore or utilize every opportunity but there are seating options outside and just everything you need within this property. The property is the destination itself, a place to get away and unwind. Communication with the owner was great as well. Their care is evident in the small touches everywhere. I’m glad I found this place. Thank you for sharing it.

The Love Lodge was the perfect spot for a romantic weekend getaway! The cabin is spacious, clean, and beautifully designed. While the style is eclectic, every single piece is carefully curated. I wish we could have spent more time here. Would absolutely recommend!

I stayed here with my husband and parents and we’re already planning our next trip back! Christine and Adam were amazing hosts- they were readily available and quick to respond to any questions that came up during our trip.

On the day of our departure, they stopped by to introduce themselves and give us a little history about the property and the surrounding town which made our experience even more special!

The house itself is lovely and well decorated. Incredibly charming and easy to host multiple guests (tons of seating space both indoor and outside plus large, comfortable couches with the ability to turn into a mattresses). We enjoyed the nearby parks and local restaurants- all a quick drive from the property.

I highly recommend this property if you’re traveling with dogs- the entire space is fenced in and secure which allowed us to sit back, relax, and enjoy the area while our dogs ran around playing in the ample space.

We’re excited to return in the future- thanks so much Christine and Adam!

We had a wonderful time at The Love Lodge! It was awesome to connect with nature here and fully relax. We so enjoyed all of the hearts and love sentiments around the house, all of the seating areas both inside and out, the cute chandeliers, and the bath tub was fantastic. Christine was so sweet and even put a Hello Baby balloon for us as we arrived (we are due in July for our first baby)! Thank you for a great stay!

This beautiful lodge greets you as soon as you turn into the driveway. Christine and her husband Adam have worked tirelessly to make this a stunning and beautiful getaway! The grounds are stunningly manicured and there are lounge areas, covered tables, a large fire pit, and even a meditation space all among lush trees and plants.
The lodge is stunning. It’s so spacious and the renovations that Christine and Adam have done are incredible. Our favorite was the giant kitchen that’s flooded in natural light from all the windows and skylights. There’s a coffee and tea bar fully stocked with awesome stuff. We love to cook, and we loved how well stocked the kitchen was. There’s plenty of utensils, dishware, and spices for anyone wanting to cook.
There’s an open-air building next to the lodge that can be used for weddings and parties. Along the back of it there’s a cozy porch with comfortable furniture and a bistro table that was perfect for coffee, mimosas, and breakfast.
We spent a relaxing evening at the campfire toasting marshmallows and enjoying some drinks. The whole property has wonderful serene energy and we loved all the hammocks, lounge chairs, and other cozy hangouts like the spacious porches and tables throughout the yard. Adam and Christine are also constructing a meditation/yoga nook in the corner of the property and we enjoyed doing some morning yoga there.
Christine goes out of her way to make sure her guests are completely set up with anything they could need, and she warmly greeted us and spoiled us our whole time visiting!
If you want an amazing getaway where you can get pampered and completely spoiled, look no further!

Be prepared to fall in love with this magical space. You won’t want to leave once you arrive. From the friendly tour when arriving to the last moment pulling out of the property... this little gem was amazing. Thank you Christine.
