Why Eric Hantman chose Eldred

We love getting out of the city and relaxing at the Lakehouse. The peaceful setting is perfect to disconnect and enjoy nature. It's the perfect getaway to hike and explore the surroundings on the property and in the area. All 4 seasons offer something different and special. Boating and fishing in summer, Hiking and exploring in the Spring, Foliage in the Fall and Winter is magical when it snows.

Amazing house and property, amazing owner, amazing time

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I rented this house for a reunion-type getaway weekend and it could not have been more perfect.

First, the house itself is completely renovated and the owner, Eric, definitely spent a little extra to make it a spacious, warm and ideal spot for a get together. (i.e., gorgeous layout, huge kitchen, huge living room with great TV situation, plenty of bathrooms and bedrooms, and a finished basement) Everything seemed to be done high-end in this house. The pictures don't do it enough justice. It truly was beautiful.

Second, the house sits on an beautiful 8 acre wooded lot so you have plenty of space to yourselves. There is a tiki torch-lined pathway to a fire pit, which is great for catching up around the camp fire. Also, the lake the house is on (it sits back a little bit from the water but just a 60 second walk down a cleared path) is another gorgeous element to this place. It is perfect for fishing, boating, jet skiing, you name it. Just awesome. Plus, the owner has his own dock that you can tie up a boat to if you plan on bringing one. Or, you can rent one at a place just across the lake.

Lastly, the owner, Eric, was an awesome guy and host. Totally laid back and friendly. He was super responsive to every email I sent him in the weeks leading up to our stay and called to make sure all of our questions were answered. I think the part that really made me happy was when he texted me while we were staying there just to make sure we were having a good time and to tell us to call him if we needed anything at all. Just a great host.

I would definitely recommend this place for anyone who wants to have a nice getaway with friends and family. It was perfect. Thank you Eric!

Amazing Trip!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful 5 day stay at this house. The owner, Eric, is super easy to get in contact with and was very responsive to all questions leading up to our trip. The house is clean and beautifully decorated. The rooms are spacious, the bathrooms are updated, and the kitchen is fully stocked. We enjoyed making dinner and eating around the big dining room table every night. During the days, we spent our time on the dock by the lake. We caught lots of fish and had a blast. We brought an inflatable boat with a small motor that we were able to use. There are also 2 kayaks and a stand up paddle board that are provided. Those were really fun!

The large fire pit area is great as well. The house is secluded, so you don't have to worry about being loud. OH! And I can't forget to mention the outdoor shower. I'm a big fan of outdoor showers and this one is awesome! No complaints on this house. It was fantastic! We would definitely stay here again.
