“Peaceful Retreat in the Woods”
Reviewed 5 January 2018 for a stay in December 2017

The Chalet at The8Acres is sweet and peaceful. Although our winter stay was short, our family was grateful for the heat inside (each room had its own convenient electric baseboard heat control) and the cold outside (the frozen lake and the layer of snow provided a beautiful scenic view for both the sunrise and the sunset) We appreciated the clean and ample supply of bed, bath, and kitchen linens and the warm welcome extended to us by Sandy and Kay. We would definitely return again for a peaceful winter retreat.

Date of stay: December 2017

“We had our wedding there.....”
Reviewed 9 May 2016 for a stay in April 2016
people found this review helpful

We booked the 8 acres because it was beautiful & they said they welcomed outdoor weddings. A month before our wedding we were notified that the owner decided to expand the deck which caused the yard to get tore up so they had to reseed the grass. There was 1 small patch of grass just big enough for us to put the tent for our wedding & because of the short notice, we weren't able to find another venue in time so we had no choice but to deal with it. It rained all day on our wedding day so, naturally with the straw everywhere & the small patch of grass we had, it became a muddy mess. We didn't mind because the day still turned out great! All our guests were very polite with the property & careful not to tear anything up. When we cleaned up the next day, we made sure the property was back to the same way as when we got there. The day we were cleaning up, the owner creeped by the property slowly 4 different times but, when we called & called it took a few times for them to answer. When they finally answered they said they wouldn't be able to come out & walk the property with us that day, but, our deposit would be mailed to us. When we got back from our honeymoon & saw there was still no deposit we called to see what was going on. The owner said we had left the place completely destroyed & would not get a deposit back & that we are lucky he isn't sending us a bill. Then, while we were trying to ask him what was destroyed, he hung up on us! We had friends wanting to book this place for a getaway who will now not be going there & we will never be recommending this place to anyone. What takes the cake for us is that all we were doing was trying to get answers & he hung up on us! Bad business all the way around.
