We rented 'this house' 5 times and had to have it when the owner decided to sell. This place holds the memories of some of our best family vacations ~ BIG FISH STORIES ~ Home cooked meals shared around the table - We LOVED it here! We hope you'll enjoy it as much as we did!

Awsome Lake House

  • 5 of 5

This was the Best VRBO we have ever stayed at. It is the perfect Lake rental for an awesome fishing vacation., I hesitate in spreading the greatness of this rental in fear of it becoming over booked. Susie was the best hostess in so many ways in making sure your trip has all the pluses you need for your vacation. Love love the porch area and the closeness to the lake , and did I mention how clean the place was, could not have ask for anything more in this rental.

Perfect getaway in a beautiful lake home

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I came for the weekend with our 2 dogs - this home is wonderful! Plenty of space for several more people and right on the water - only seconds from Lake Istokpoga! We plan on coming back with a group!

It was a great stay

  • 4 of 5

The property is off the beating path on a quiet part of the lake at the end of a channel. The house is well furnished and very welcoming and clean. We have rented there many springs with the previous owner and now the new. I did however miss the gas grille :( but was able to make due. You wont be disappointed in your stay it was the best value on the lake at the time of this writing. I will miss it thanks for the great memory's. Terry & Beth

Great Bass Fishing

  • 5 of 5

The lake home was lovely and provided a perfect place for a weekend of fishing. We stayed here once before under a different owner. Ron and Susie have even improved the experience. The house was well maintained and very nicely furnished and decorated. The kitchen was well equipped and there were plenty of towels for all! The dock in back provided a nice place to tie up for a break from fishing.
