  • Lovely home on the water!


    This home allowed us the perfect weekend of quiet and relaxation by the water. The rooms fit us all comfortably and the outdoor space was spectacular. I would definitely stay here again!

  • Beautiful House and Covered Dock for Fishing


    Two families traveling together had a wonderful weekend getaway!

    We spent most of our time fishing by the lake. The dock has a covered deck with a bar area, tables and chairs, and lounge chairs. We fished and ate lunch down there.

    The home is in a quiet development, safe and scenic for walking. We played cornhole on the porch behind the house and the kids played football in the side yard.

    One family stayed on the main floor and the other family stayed on the bottom floor. The bottom floor has a second common area with a tv and sofas. The main floor has the kitchen, a common area, and a lovely covered porch area. The house is connected to the dock and lake area by a relatively steep paved sidewalk. People with mobility issues should take this into consideration.

    The only negative for us was that beds are all very firm, the twin beds uncomfortably so.

    Overall, we had a wonderful stay and would love to return in the summertime!

  • Wonderful!


    We rented this house for a weekend with friends and had the best time! Everything was new, updated, clean and tidy. Plenty of towels and kitchen supplies. Lots of outdoor space to hang out and we absolutely loved the outdoor dock. It’s not a huge place but the space is perfectly used and we never felt cramped. Generous with what’s provided as well— toiletries, laundry supplies, coffee filters, etc. We loved our time here. The only disappointment is that non-residents cannot rent boats or jet skis. We brought lots of floats so we made due, but we were jealous of all the water sports we saw on the lake— no fault to the owner as it’s an HOA rule, but just come prepared with ways to use the lake on your own. We will definitely be back!
