The house is lovely and very comfortable

  • 4 of 5

The house is lovely and so is the yard. There are several places to sit out in the sun or shady areas if you prefer. I loved having my coffee on the deck in the morning and watching the ducks.There were a few 90 degree days where we were very happy to have the air conditioning. My husband caught an 8 and a half pound bass so he was thrilled with that.

The sandy swimming area is nice but when you are my age with arthritic knees it is a steep drop to get to. The steps near the boat go all the way down to the water but the cleaner swimming side has a much steeper drop.

There are a lot of people who race through the swimming area much faster than I believe is legal for them to be traveling on jet skis and boats so close to shore. If I had been in the water I am not sure I could have got out of the way in time. We only saw the police actually stop someone once. I mostly only went in the water in the muckier space between the boat and the dock because it felt safer to be where people didn't come racing through. I know they probably can not be stopped from doing that so it would be nicer if someone could rake out that area so it could be sandy there too.

We enjoyed the fire pit at night and the friendly neighbors would always wave to us when we came out.

Another terrific week on Lake Shirley

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year at this property and once again it was the perfect venue for our summer vacation. The home is clean, very comfortable and it has all the amenities needed for a comfortable stay. The lakefront location includes a nice large yard, dock with a diving board and a fire pit. The pontoon boat is a huge benefit as it provides enjoyment of the entire lake. We look forward to returning again!

Wonderful family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous week at this lovely home. Plenty of room for us, our grown kids, and grands. The house is well taken care of, with all we needed for our stay. We had great fun on the pontoon boat - Chuck is an excellent teacher. And having three kayaks to enjoy was terrific. Swimming was great - either off the pontoon boat or right by the house.

All in all, we had a great week away & everyone agreed we’d love to return.

Beautiful lake, lots to do, and pet friendly

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed a very relaxing week at Lake Shirley. The property had everything we needed, kayaks, pontoon boat, grill, beach area and dock, fire pit, you name it. We had a bit of trouble w the air conditioning but Claire was right on top of it and got it fixed quickly--even during the holiday week! My husband caught a some nice large mouth and small mouths and we enjoyed the fireworks and the pontoon boat parade.

Great week on Lake Shirley

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a terrific week at Lake Shirley. The home and its location on the lake made for a perfect vacation. Great communication from the owner and everything was just as she described. We'd love to return for another week next summer!

A Relaxing Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

This was our third annual family vacation where we have rented a vacation home on or near the water. This was our best yet! We loved that we did not have to pack up the car and leave to go to the beach, we simply walked out of the house and the lake was right there. We swam, kayaked, took the pontoon boat out many times and thoroughly enjoyed Lake Shirley! When we first arrived, Chuck gave us a great orientation ride on the pontoon boat. That was so helpful. We learned how to operate the boat and Chuck gave us helpful details about the lake - where to anchor for different swimming spots, where the lake gets shallow and interesting lake facts.

The house is very comfortable. Our family of 5 adults and two children were very comfortable. The three bedrooms and 2 bathrooms (each with double vanities) gave us plenty of room. The huge Master bedroom suite has a very comfortable King bed and a large flatscreen TV with Satellite Dish package. The comfortable queen bedroom, right off the kitchen, also has a TV. The third bedroom, between the master and queen room has a comfortable full bed and worked well for us for the children. The living area is large and open with comfortable furniture and has another large flat screen TV. The kitchen has everything you need to cook a full meal. A large Viking range, large side by side refrigerator, double sink with dishwasher, plenty of pots, pans, utensils, and dishes. The dining room table seats 6 easily with a nearby counter with two more seats. The kitchen, living room, and dining area are all surrounded by large windows overlooking the lake. The view is very peaceful!

The outside is great. The lawn is well kept and excellent for playing. The deck has a picnic table close to the gas grill. Perfect for cooking and eating outside. The fire pit is close to the water and is a great evening activity. The swimming areas have large shallow sections for children to enjoy. There are some sandy areas, but swimming shoes make it more comfortable especially in the deeper areas. There is even a diving board available for some cannonballs!

The surrounding area has many conveniences. Within 2 - 6 miles there are multiple grocery stores, Target, DD, Starbucks, Dicks, McDonalds, Pizza. Kimballs Farm ice cream is a fun place to visit! Claire, is very good to work with. She was a quick email away thanks to the great WiFi in the house! We would love to go back to what my 4yr old Grandson called "The Lake House"!
