Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with our family!... "Mojo" house has the rustic lake charm we were looking for and provided us all with a much needed escape. Thank you also for going the extra mile in lining up the extras... We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and plan to return soon!

Beautiful & Fantastic!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay! However, we got to upgrade to Neptune so we did not stay at Mojo! Our stay at Neptune was wonderful!!!! A beautiful home, lots and lots of space, well cared for and very clean! We had a wonderful family weekend together and hope to do it again some time. We were not disappointed about anything!

Nice home, we enjoyed our stay.

  • 4 of 5

It was a bit difficult to determine the layout of the bedrooms by the photos. Our kids loved the bunk beds and loft! Wonderful outdoor space and fire pit.

More towels (hand and kitchen towels) would have been appreciated. A few things needed to be updated/replaced. The downstairs bathroom shower curtain was moldy and the toaster was very difficult to work.

Steve, the owner, was easy to work with, very friendly and accommodating. We rented a pontoon boat from

him and he helped make it a great day and experience.

Overall, a very positive experience and we really enjoyed ourselves!

Beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

I had a great time at "mojo", the property was nice and secluded from neighbors. Owner communicates very quickly and was great to work with. Thanks for a great weekend at Lake Panorama.

Great cabin on the lake

  • 5 of 5

No complaints at all about our stay at Mojo. Perfect size for our group of 12. Really enjoyed the private access to the lake and space for lawn games. Although we didn't use it, we also loved the bar space above the garage. The owner was easy to work with and the place was very clean.

very nice

  • 4 of 5

Great setting and beautiful home! Our families stayed at the home to celebrate our holidays together, fun space to be together in! Living space spread out on three separate floors, so a fair amount of stair climbing for older adults. No significant space for large group of people but we made it work nicely. Recreation room (with bar) is a very fun space but over the garage. Not able to be used unfortunately in the winter, which we had not identify on the web site, so disappointed we could not use the fabulous space. Owner very friendly, drive plowed well (it had snowed prior to our stay), and there are plenty of garbage bins. Thank you for opening your home to us, look forward to returning again perhaps during another season! A Noble
