Guestbook comments from the manager

I brought my salon staff to the house for a little retreat and we had a fantastic time. Jason was there to meet us and was very accommodating with questions. Lots of beds to sleep in- we had 11 people and 2 had to sleep on the couches but they were big and comfortable so no problems there. The lake was great, hardly any boat traffic on the weekdays and we had access to use the host's boats. Plenty of towels and extra bedding. The kitchen is very big and easy to cook in for so many people. We loved our trip and hope to stay here again next summer!

Beautiful and spacious home on a great spot on Wonder Lake. Had everything we needed for our family

  • 5 of 5

Had a family reunion here with 3 generations, aging from 11 months to 75 yrs old and everyone had a wonderful time. Private area of lake for the kids to swim in with shallow waters and provided boat and kayaks were a nice bonus. House is well cared for and ample space. Jason was very responsive and helpful. Definitely recommend this place.

Great Weekend Trip!

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful house with plenty of room for guests to sleep, cook, and play games. Spacious rooms, nice access to the lake, and some small boats to row out onto the lake!

Small Town - BIG FUN - Wonder Lake Home

  • 4 of 5

Even better than we expected. Price is high if not having a large family reunion or fun weekend with friends (we stayed off season and during the week - the week before Memorial Day to save $; turned out it ended up being a great time to go; a lot of privacy and not too hot yet). With that being said, would absolutely 100% return even if it were just us two again. We ran out of time with everything there was available to do. My favorite part (which is so hard to choose) was sipping my morning coffee in the early sun with all the birds and animals chirping, singing and rustling about around me on all sides. If you are a nature lover, this place is for you. Thanks so much to Jason for all his guidance and assistance. We didn't need a thing; but if was reassuring to know he was around if in fact we did. Thanks again to TA and to Jason - it was an amazing stay. p.s. don't forget your water shoes !! There is a grocery store, a Subway, and an awesome pizzeria (Paulee's, that delivers - delish !! :)

Great Stay

  • 4 of 5

Great house for a big family get together! We had Christmas at this house and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the house. It was spacious and plenty of room if anyone wanted to stay the night. Jason was great, very accommodating for anything that was needed during our stay. Would definitely consider it for next year.

Good Recovery

  • 3 of 5

My family and I stayed here in July 2015. We enjoyed our time but was disappointed with the presentation of the house (see Misrepresentation review). We appreciated a second opportunity for an improved experience; thank you owners and manager. I was saddened, however, by the response of the manager to my former review, as it seemed we were blamed for feeling let down. It's true, we did not contact management during our stay, but we felt if one is going to offer rental properties, they are responsible to be prepared for the next guests arriving, regardless the size of party or their departure time (i.e. missing items, broken furniture, minimal linens, dirt under beds, former parties leaving late, etc.).

In this second complimentary visit many things were rectified: ample kitchen ware & linens, replaced pool sticks, and overall good cleanliness. We did come across a used paper plate and half empty water bottle under a sofa (not that we were looking - our dog's ball went under it). We loved the house, itself. The knotty pine gives the structure a homey feel and we enjoyed the 2 fireplaces (one gas and one wood-burning), giving cozy warmth. The weather was chilly so we opted to enjoy the water from the upper view of the master suite. We spent most of our time writing and this home made for the perfect location. While there, we also celebrated our anniversary and were surprised with a lovely basket of fruit, cheese, pepperoni, champaign, and gift card to a local restaurant from the manager. Thank you for a lovely stay.

I stayed here with 4 adults and 4 kids. The house was very spacious & clean. It fit all our needs. Being right on the water was awesome & very relaxing! Having excess to the water toys that are included with the house was great fun & very convenient. Jason the manager was super nice and very accommodating. I highly recommend staying here. I will definitely stay here again.
