    We really enjoyed our stay here. There were five adults and two children (ages 6 and 8) and we had ample room for relaxing, playing and sleeping. We did lots of cooking and found that the kitchen had most everything we needed for our Thanksgiving meal. Only thing we didn't find was a rolling pin and pie plate. Local thrift stores took care of that! Not far to a grocery store and General Dollar store as well.

  • Nice house just no boat and trailer parking


    Everything was wonderful about the property, beds are comfy couches and recliners are great. The room upstairs with the twin bed has a tv that kept my kids occupied while making dinner. The only thing that we found odd and that we had to make sure of was the room on the second floor to the right of the bathroom, had a lock that was reversed so the occupant can be locked in the room. And not get out. When I said no boat ever parking it’s not like it can’t be done, I have a long truck and trailer. I was able to do it but it took a long time with 2 people guiding me. There are two trees in the middle of the driveway that you need to split. There is a chain link fence in front of the property that makes it difficult to pull forward. The neighbor has his truck parked in a way that makes it difficult to navigate through the trees. It’s his property so not complaining about that. If you have a shorter rig its way easier. I measure 42 feet so. Not saying anything negative about it just be warned that it’s not boat or Rv “easily accessible “

  • Great Lake getaway


    Our family had a perfect vacation staying at this house. Plenty of space, very clean, and close to the lake. We rented a boat everyday or enjoyed the lake campground nearby. 5 stars. We will be back

  • Beautiful


    The house was amazing and set in a beautiful secluded wooded area. Had total privacy and plenty of room. The hosts have made the house very cozy and had every amenity that you would need. My family and I loved it.
