Highly recommend this lakefront paradise!

  • 5 of 5

You don't have to hesitate, this is truly a lakefront paradise! We have stayed in many vacation rentals through the years and this is the best! It is fully stocked, the kitchen has everything you could ever want to cook with, from condiments+ in the fridge to spices in the cabinet, and all the cookware and small appliances you could think of! Exceptionally clean and well appointed. It was a pleasant surprise, we had no issues arise. We were greeted with a text when we arrived stating to text or call with any questions or concerns. Great communication, before, during and after. And we received our security deposit within a week of departing. We had the maximum allowed and used every room and enjoyed it immensely. The first day we arrived we were in the kayaks right around the pier and to our delight two gorgeous, friendly swans swam right up to the pier to greet us and came back each day we were there. Kids had a ball playng in the sand, fishing off the pier, swimming in the lake and kayaking. Not to mention, the adults and kids enjoyed playing pool and ping pong downstairs and the two large flat screen TVs w cable. I have to say that the main attraction is the upper level screened in porch for all ages which provided a picturesque view of the lake and a place to relax!! The cabinet that had all the games and dvds is also an excellent idea for a rainy day, however, we were fortunate that the weather held out. We plan on returning as soon as we can get everyone together again!!

Perfect Family Get Away

  • 5 of 5

For the second year in a row, three generations of our family enjoyed a relaxing vacation at this immaculately maintained lake house. Its location near Fredericksburg is the perfect distance for our family members to travel, and the house's waterfront setting provides ample recreational options for young and old. We would love to return again next year!

Amazing home!

  • 5 of 5

This place was wonderful. As a family of six with children ranging from three to thirteen, this house had everything we could want. Private dock for swimming and sunbathing, fun sand play area, a canoe for transport and play, bunk beds and so much more. The property is very well kept with fresh linens, scoured bathrooms, maintained landscape and clean overall feel. The kitchen had everything we needed from bowls to a blender. Great place to relax or to get out and be active. An amazing home away from home!

Excellent weekend get away

  • 5 of 5

We were in town for a wedding and instead of renting a hotel decided to rent the great home. The house was great for 4 couple and we had a blast. We were able to get up and relax on the either the front porch or on the pier. We had a fun day relaxing on the pier and riding the kayaks and the canoe.

The house was well equipped and had all we needed and I highly recommend this house.
