The space
Welcome to J & J's Hideaway!

The spacious deck is it's own oasis with beautiful views. Enjoy the zen while sitting in the rocking benches watching the sun shine down on the water, listening to nature. The deck has a heater to keep you warm during the colder months. Dine outside here with trees, water and wildlife surrounding you. Move over to the whiskey barrel bar and sip on a hot or cold beverage while taking in the scenery. Head down closer to the water and sit around the cozy fire pit (note: bring your own firewood), kick back, relax and have quality time with friends or family. There is a boat ramp/access to the water from the property. Swim or just float in the river. Be sure to wear water shoes or crocs. Bring your own kayaks or tubes and take a float down the river. Come back and play yard games and listen to music, the babbling brook and the occasional train passing by over the beautiful stone, arched bridge on our 1.5 acres of land. This is a home in the country not very close to a city or a town. If city living is what you’re looking for, this home is not for you. This is an escape in the middle of nowhere.

The interior has just as much to offer as the exterior of this home! Enjoy meals together in this spacious, fully equipped kitchen and dining room. Cozy up on the sofa in the living room or in the bonus room/addition. The house was fully renovated in 2020. Central heating and air have been added throughout the main level and a mini split has been added to the addition for optimal comfort in the home. The gourmet kitchen is complete with white quartz counters, a breakfast bar with barstools, a skylight and views of the water. There are brand new floors throughout the home. New bathroom vanities, lighting and the whole house has been freshly painted. The sleep number bed in the master bedroom makes for an amazing night sleep. There is a remote so you can adjust the firmness to your liking. There are 2 TVs & 2 DVD players; one in the living room & one in the bonus room. We have provided a black leather DVD case with over 100 DVDs for you to watch.

The house is complete with covered parking, dinnerware, utensils, pots and pans, a crock pot, baking sheets, pyrex dishes, a Keurig, olive oil, salt & pepper, sheets and shower towels. Please be sure to bring anything else you may need including beach towels, ice, firewood and additional items for cooking that are not listed. Please bring fishing licenses and hunting licenses if applicable to your activities during your stay.

Wifi is available. The WiFi is good for emails and texts, but not video calls.

We have put a lot of time, energy and resources in to making this an amazing getaway for our guests and we truly hope you enjoy your stay. Please treat our home with the love and care that you would treat your own. Please respect neighbors and property lines to keep positive relationships within our community. We use this as our home for 50% of the year.
