Perfect for a family who loves nature! Unplug, relax and unwind.

  • 5 of 5

This home away from home perfectly met our family of 6's needs. Nice, well equipped kitchen, roomy clean bedrooms. Big comfy couch and two pinball machines for rainy weather when you can't enjoy the dock, tether ball or ping pong. The two bathrooms were a real plus for keeping a us girls happy (4) when getting ready. The washer and dryer onsite was a godsend too. The owner Greg was super communicative and responded timely to questions. I felt very welcomed. I recommend this to anyone who wants to unplug and enjoy quality family time!!!! We enjoyed fishing on the dock. (I wish the bugs didn't enjoy me so much, I highly recommend bug spray). If you absolutely need internet for work or something you'll have to bring your own hotspot or go into town. I personally loved that everyone was unplugged for our time there. We made memories that will last a life time.

Awesome Tranquility in the woods on the lake

  • 5 of 5

Had such a restful stay. The sunsets are as breathtaking as in the keys. Strong odor of gasoline in the garage where 2nd bedroom is located. Loved the pinball games and the tether ball brought back grade school memories. Really enjoyed playing ping pong. We have 23 steps to our place and found a double pulley luggage,etc lift extremely valuable. Sheets super soft. Would highly recommend!

Lovely and peaceful family-get-together on beautiful Riley lake

  • 5 of 5

Remote and quiet location on beautiful lakefront house. Perfect for families with children who love spending time in the water, playing, swimming, fishing. Water was so perfect, amazing water temperatures. Breathtaking sunsets! The house it self had everything we needed. Well equipped with all amenities included. It was clean and organised. Greg the owner is super friendly and helpful.

We loved the DVD collection, and the poor phone and internet reception gave us a nice break from the ever so busy online world.

Very nice place, simple and easy living. Recommended!

Best regards Donnah and Magnud, + kids: Oliver 13, Cassandra 12 and Isabell 10,

Gorgeous, secluded spot...comfortable home with cool stone work...I'm a repeat guest

  • 5 of 5

The dock over the water is the perfect spot for reading, meditation, fishing, or just enjoying the scenery. Very restful retreat.
