  • Fall Weekend family get away.


    We enjoyed our stay. The game room games were well used as were the kayaks. Enjoyed the outdoor deck and fire pit. Living area was very comfortable.

    Kids and husband enjoyed fishing from the dock/deck. Great place to sit out in the evening. Issues with house that needed attention were conveyed to the owner but didn’t stop us from enjoying the time outdoors.

  • Lakeside Retreat - A Serene Getaway Worth Every Moment


    We recently had the pleasure of spending a week at this vacation house situated on a quaint lake, and it was nothing short of delightful.

    Firstly, the cleanliness of the house was evident from the moment we stepped in. It felt as if we were the first to ever reside there, which is a testament to the maintenance team’s dedication.

    The kayaks were super fun. We spent a lot of time out on the decks and water, and the views were top-notch. Those sunrises and sunsets? Amazing. It's the kind of thing you take photos of but know pictures won't do justice.

    One slight surprise was the proximity of the neighbors. While we initially thought they were a bit closer than anticipated, it turned out not to be an issue at all. Everyone maintained their privacy, and it only added to the community feel of the area.

    This vacation house by the lake was a haven of relaxation and serenity. Our week felt like a refreshing break from the hustle and bustle, and we’re already looking forward to our next stay. Highly recommended!

  • Unplugged & Recharged


    This rental proved to be a great backdrop for a low key, relaxing Father’s Day weekend with our infant and grandparents. While there were shared amenities like pools and playgrounds, we found no reason to leave the back deck & dock. The house is older, but authentically rustic - and the bedrooms, bathrooms and kitchen are very clean. The rest of the house is worn and the neighbors are close, but I viewed it upscale from camping; the lakeviews were certainly luxurious. We took out one of the kayaks, but if you want to use it heavily, i’d advise renting one nearby or using the canoe instead. The rental process & checkin was seamless.All said and done, we had the weekend we craved. You simply cannot beat a late afternoon drink on the deck.
