“Saw Saturn tonight through the binoculars, and could even make out it’s rings”
“Awoke to glorious sunshine pouring in- a common occurrence here, we’re beginning to find out… a perfect night- Turkey Leek pie and The Story of Hiawatha”

“I’ve never experienced the Lake as magnificently as here at Horizon House. What a perfect name. Jerry grilled our steaks on the patio surrounded by roses. We will travel up Hwy. 61 today but we hate to leave this place.”
Jerry and Jeannette
“We stayed at Horizon House for our annual women’s weekend. You should have heard the ooh’s and aah’s when we walked in the door. We were prepared for something special but the reality was far better than the fantasy. The views of the lake are superb and the house is well equipped and comfortable. We truly enjoyed ourselves hiking, playing games, chatting and laughing a lot. Now it’s time to go and we are still mesmerized by the lake views.
Ps. We saw two beautiful Harvest Moons!
Mary, Cheryl, Rhonda
“We opened the door and our jaws dropped! What a gorgeous place! We came to relax, read, paint and think about our retirement and we could not have asked for a more perfect place to do all those things. We had 10 sunny days, a day of large waves, one where there was no Horizon at all, and several gorgeous sunrises that we woke for. We once lived in a house with many Frank Loyd Wright influences and this reminds me so much of that- the corner windows, the use of bright orange and pine, and successfully bringing the outdoors in. I’m a realistic portrait painter and I did my first two oil landscapes here! The Light is incredible! Who could resist!?
“My sister and I carefully prepared with my “boombox”, CD’s and tapes to watch. Little did we know your lovely home had everything we loved!! Books and books -- our eyes lit up! Music!! And the very best surprise a piano!
Our stay was perfection!! My sister and I were lucky enough to be there for 7 days. I must say, your website prepared me for a wonderful stay, but we couldn't believe it when we pulled into the driveway. My sister was prepared for a housekeeping cabin, and I wanted this to be a surprise for her and also a retreat and gift to her for surviving a year of turmoil and exasperation. She was overwhelmed by the location and the generosity of you letting strangers stay in your personal space (as was I). And to make it the best it could ever have been - a piano! Oh, the wonderful hours I spent listening to her play to her heart's content!!!
We hauled up a van full of our scrap booking and had many treasured hours pouring over our family photos and making even more memories. The beginning of the week was cold, windy and rainy, with absolutely perfect windswept waves for the next few days. Then the weather lightened up and we had our fill of hiking for the next few days and back "home" again for cuddling up in your cozy space. We had each brought up a least 5 books apiece, CD's full of favorite songs, and even our own boom box. Imagine our JOY to see ALL THOSE BOOKS and a great stereo and a nice mix of music. It was like you knew our every love. And we are still in awe of the splendor of the sun pouring in!
Thank you, thank you and more thank you's.
