About Daniele Keller
Always wanted a getaway on the water. Found this gem in 2011. Spent 2012 updating both levels. Now I will share the lower level with guests. The upper level is my getaway, 10 miles from home. As good as it gets if you ask me.

Wonderful place to get away.
Our family had a great time on our vacation at the home. The house was well maintained and comfortable. The kids joyed Kayaking and fishing. The wife and I enjoyed the peace and quiet. Everyone one was so nice, I spoke to the neighbors across the rivers everyday and everyone was helpful. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was the fallen tree had the yard in disarray but that was no problem for me.
Thank you for your review. I hope to see you again. Daniele
Close little getaway!
My husband and I enjoyed the peace and quiet without having to drive a lot. I went out with the kayak every day . There’s a little beach a few minutes drive away for swimming. The House was comfortable and patio was great!
Thank you for submitting your review....i hope you visit again. Daniele
Perfect little house on the lake!
My family of 5 stayed in this house and we had plenty of room, and all the lake fun right outside the door. We enjoyed coffee and breakfast on the deck every morning and the access to the lake was just perfect. We didn't spend much time inside, but if we had wanted to, the house was fully stocked with games and televisions. The Wifi was periodically down while we were there, which could have been solved with a phone call to Daniele, but we were having too much fun to remember to do that. We would definitely stay here again.
Great cozy home right on the lake.
Very nice outdoor space for lounging and relaxing with kayaks & paddle boats. Access for my Mom who is in a wheelchair and very dog friendly back yard with secure fencing and gates. Home very well stocked with amenities in the kitchen, bath and both bedrooms. Including satitlite dish and WiFi.
Thank you for taking the time to share your review. I hope you visit again. Daniele
Outside activities were great, but the inside was lower than our expectations
Overall it was a good experience. The lake was great. Kayaks, paddle boats and a nice dock. My son caught over a dozen blue gill. The fire pit and bbq and outdoor dining was really nice.
But the inside was definitely below our expectations. There is no washer and dryer! And no dishwasher. The kitchen was not well stocked. The internet access was spotty. The house wasn't very clean. And the house was always damp and smelled funny.
The owner was very nice and helpful.
Dear Brian....I am so sorry you found the lakehouse not to be clean. PLEASE tell me what was not clean. Also what was missing in the area of stocking kitchen? I am very sorry you did not have a very good experience at the lakehouse. Sincerely Daniele
Very peaceful right on the canal going into the big barnes lake. Beautiful sunrises and great swim
Comfortable Bed and living area. Kitchen had everything we needed. Loved the deck we spent most of our time there. Beautiful place right on the lake. Fishing was outstanding. Kayaking was beautiful.
Thank you for your review. I am happy you enjoyed your stay. I look forward to having you return. Daniele
