Christmas family getaway was everything we expected. The house is beautiful. Perfect set up so our littel one could go to bed and we could play games in the game room.
Looking forward to returning during the summer and being able to use all the outside amenities. Property manager was a delight and extremely helpful with everything.

From the owner: ''Hi Nicole,
We are so glad to hear that you and your group enjoyed the home and found it comfortable and fun!
We hope to see you back in the Spring and Summer!
Thank you for again for staying with us!''
We had such a great time in this home. We have 5 kids who were entertained the entire time! If they weren’t swimming in the lake, they were playing on the playground or in the game room! As the parents we loved the view of the lake and the swing and deck. There were plenty of rooms and more for our big family! Coffee shop is just a 5 min walk away with pizza and ice cream just around the corner! We loved it and hope to return.
From the owner: "Hi Kaiti! Thank you so very much for your kind words! We love to hear when families enjoy themselves and everyone has a good time. So glad to hear that you love the views, the home, the amenities, and all that the beautiful Chain of Lakes has to offer. We look forward to seeing you back soon!"
Owners were gracious in letting us arrive a couple of hours early so we were able to get in some boating on a lovely Friday afternoon. Boating was facilitated by their private boat ramp and ability to tie up to their pier. Large kitchen and dining area meant everyone could sit at the dining table and multiple people could be in the kitchen at the same time.
Cool morning meant exploring the home's many game rooms....such fun and a man land 4th bathroom. Little ones enjoyed the sandbox and swing set.
Owner was very responsive to questions. A few items needed attention but that is often the case with vacation homes and nothing impeding us having a good time. We plan to use this home again.
From the owner: "Cass, thank you so very much for your review! We absolutely love to hear our guests bring their boats and enjoy the private boat launch and pier, as that is the best way to explore the beautiful Chain O' Lakes! We are so glad you enjoyed the home layout and all the amenities and, as you said, many game rooms provided for the entire family's entertainment. We look forward to seeing you back soon!"
Love the location of this home, and the direct access to the water. The pirate ship in the yard was a huge hit with our kids. The rooms were all well-appointed and comfortable as well. My only criticism is the basement ceilings are so low that it was hard for some members to stand down there. Otherwise, we had a great time. Fabi was a very accommodating contact as well. Thank you!
From the owner: "Dear Katie, thank you so much for your review! We are so glad to hear that you and your family enjoyed your stay and that the Pirate became good friends with your kids! (he is a great guy!). The Chain of Lakes is indeed a beautiful place! We look forward to seeing you back soon!".
