Great family vacation!

  • 5 out of 5
This was the perfect house for our multifamily vacation (we could've used another bathroom, but that's just because of our large group!). We had 8 adults and 6 kids ages 2-70. The beach was beautiful, and the water was calm and clean. We swam all day, cooked on the BBQ, and roasted marshmallows in the fire pit at night. The beach house, aka "Jabba the Hutt" was a HUGE bonus, as we ate our meals there, and kept snacks/drinks inside without having to walk back up to the house. Fresh eggs from the chickens was a treat! Shari was very accommodating and a pleasure to work with!

Great summer weekend!

  • 5 out of 5
We spent July 4th weekend here and had an absolutely wonderful time!

Shari certainly thought of everything and was available any time we had a question or concern. She is better than a councierge at the finest hotel! The house is well maintained with all the comforts of home. There were 12 of us in our group ranging from 7 to 70's, there was plenty of room for all of us and something for every age.
I would highly recommend renting this property.

Excellent Stay

  • 5 out of 5
We rented Shari's home for the OU vs. Notre Dame Weekend. It was an awesome experience, nice home, very nice furnishings, and ample space for our two families. The cousins enjoyed seeing one another and cheering for their respective teams. Although we love the Irish, we were thrilled with the Sooners win! Nice home for Notre Dame Weekends!

Awesome family weekend!!

  • 5 out of 5
I hosted my family for a last weekend before school started at Happyland and it was fabulous. My kids, 8 years old, lives the chickens and the water may and the fishing. The house is amazing, spacious and comfortable. Shari is extremely helpful and kind in helping us with whatever we needed. We BBQ everyday and sat by the fire each night. I would definitely recommend this place and would love to come back some day!! Thanks Shari, we had a great time!!

Spacious, luxury retreat by the water

  • 5 out of 5
Our blended family of five plus our two adopted dogs had a wonderful week at this cottage! It was so nice that dogs were welcome, but that there were built-in gates to keep them contained a bit while we were eating, resting, playing games or outdoors. We did home-cooking all week - great kitchen and everything you needed was available -- pans, cookie sheets, utensils, dishes and more! Lots of separate sleeping areas (4 bedrooms + sleeping loft) so that everyone in the blended family was completely comfortable. The water mat and fishing were an absolute hit for the adults and kids alike! Nice, quiet retreat on a beautiful lake - definitely would recommend.

Great Getaway

  • 5 out of 5
If you're looking for a great place to get away, have fun and relax; then look no further. This home has all the amenities any group or family would need (spacious interior, nice finishes, stocked pantry, wifi, Netflix, swim gear, rentable jet ski, etc., etc.,etc.)! There is also a small boat house close to the water with a mini fridge for cold drinks/beer! The house sits on a nice piece of property that rolls right out to the water. There is a long dock with bench seat, large swim raft and floating dock for all your swimming needs. The property owner, Shari, was very nice and helpful with getting us familiar with the home and surrounding area. She also brought us fresh eggs from the on site chickens! I cant say enough about how much we enjoyed our stay and experience at this property. Overall, I would definitely recommend this place to anyone and I am looking forward to my next stay.
