  • Great Stay


    We stayed here for the weekend for my brother-in-laws wedding. The home served us well and was as advertised. Note that you enter in the basement, so if stairs are a problem...

    This place was great! Tons of room for everyone to feel comfortable. All the rooms, including the bathrooms are updated and new so you don't get that old "cabin" feel. The front porch goes out on the main floor as well as the second floor (off the living room) and they are both huge. Such a great place and we had a wonderful time.

    If you are looking for a place that is a stones throw from the lake or an even closer golf course, this is the place for you!

  • Great!


    The home was exactly as described and fit our family of five well. The beds were comfortable and the swings outside were enjoyed by our kids.
