  • Relaxing


    The house was updated and very clean especially for the price. I highly recommend renting this house. We had a few minor issues but the owner took care of it. The water levels were low so we couldn’t use the boat slip unfortunately but it was a 5 minute drive to the public boat launch.

    This place was great for our weekend getaway! The house was very roomy and spacious and had all the necessities of home! We loved the back patio where we could relax and hang out. There was also a covered area out back where we enjoyed the bbq. It was just a stones throw from the lake, which was a major plus for us! Thanks for hosting!! We’ll be back!
