Wonderful, quiet, secluded retreat. All the comforts of home in this cozy efficiency.

  • 5 of 5

Great experience! Beautiful views of private lake from the deck. Comfortable and well decorated. Beautiful wood ceilings. Satellite TV and gaming system with multiple titles to entertain during bad weather or late evenings.

Perfect bedroom setup for parents and 2 children. Fridge, stove, sink, microwave, toaster oven and all the normal kitchen utensils for times when you want to cook for yourself instead of going out. Super secluded; sitting out on the deck all you hear are sounds of nature.

Owners were wonderful and very responsive. Great suggestions for local businesses (from breakfast, lunch and dinner to mechanic to fix our car).

Cozy and quiet on a lake

  • 4 of 5

We had a very pleasant stay. Deb and Jim Morris were very accommodating and made us feel at home.. Even though the apt is above the garage it was still very private and separate from the house. It has 360° views that were just spectacular, with a deck overlooking their private lake..I went with my family of 5 and we were very cozy. very close to gore mountain and the town of north creek is very quaint.. Would def recommend and would like to go back for another winter trip and I'm sure the summers there are just as great...

Beautiful 💕

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was very clean and the view from the deck was beautiful. I felt like the size was perfect for us. Everything is a bit of a drive including to get to the house but well worth it. I thought that the pictures on line did not give enough justice to how pretty it really was in person. We will definitely be back.. Hopefully soon! 💕
