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!

Wonderful house for a family grouping with young kids

  • 4 of 5

We reserved the lake house for a weekend with our family. We were 4 households: parents, 2 families with 2 kids each and 1 single. The kids were ages 5, 3, 2 & 1. The living spaces and privates areas worked great for all of us. The views of the lake were peaceful and renewing.

- The amenities were a treat: Weber grill, swing set playground with sandbox, boats, fire pit, multiple chairs for sitting outside, grassy area to run and play, swimming access if the water had been warmer, game room downstairs (pool, foosball, video games and more), and laundry. Those plus all the space in the house made it for our family.

- The large dining room table was very nice and the spacious house was great for our big family.

-Loved the provided baby gates and strollers for guests to use. We took advantage!

Jason was prompt with resolving any issues. An example: we wanted to take the kids out in the row boat and needed some smaller life jackets. He brought them over within 10 min. Thanks Jason.

We highly recommend this house for family groupings wanting a place to stay together.

Great property with a lot to offer!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here a weekend in September and had a blast! The property has a lot to offer. We spent most of our time sitting out by the water or hanging out on one of the porches taking in the amazing view of the lake. We took the kayaks, canoe and rowboat out on the water, which was a lot of fun. I contacted the property manager Jason a few times asking questions before our arrival and he always replied right away and was super helpful. I would defiantly stay at this property again.

Perfect family reunion weekend

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent a long weekend there and had a perfect time. The weather was great the house is located where you can watch the the sunset. It was nice that Bruce the owner has kayaks and row boats for guests to use. The fire pit is right by the water, perfect for night fishing for some while others gathered around a warm fire at night. Jason was amazing from the first time we talked. He was super attentive and friendly. The fishing was decent, my 10 year old son won the "friendly" fishing contest we had with a 28 inch catfish. Lots of bass. The house is very spacious. We loved it and hopefully will be back! Thank you again Jason and Bruce!

House on the Lake

  • 4 of 5

Upon arriving I was quite surprised at how old this home is but so unique..Jason was so helpful and everyone of our issues we had with the house he was there to fix the next day..We are from Washington State(Seattle area) and were here for my nephews wedding so there was three of us in our 50s my mother who is 77 and our kids all in there late 20s..Our kids loved the place being the downstairs had pool table golf game foosball and video games..We had a family dinner before wedding which consisted of 18 people and had lots of room..We also enjoyed the put put golf and the friday night water show on the lake..Things I would change here are master bedroom needs a tv and the tv in the main room has only limited channels.but the one complaint i do have is the windows were really dirty and when looking out at the lake this is something that is so noticeable..also opening the sliding glass doors in master bedroom the track was really dirty.I did not bring this to Jasons attention at the time but maybe something they may want to address for future renters..The kitchen was well stocked with enough plates glasses ,pots and pans.also had a pantry which was helpful..We were here for a week and other than the window issue i had we totally enjoyed our stay here..Thank You Jason for taking care of all our issues..

Great Lake House and Property

  • 5 of 5

We did an extended family getaway at this house - it couldn't have been better. Spacious house, lots of nice touches. We didn't really use the game room downstairs as the weather was nice and we took full advantage of the canoe, kayak, rowboat, firepit, grill, the 2 decks, the pier for fishing, etc. Jason, the property manager, was really responsive and helpful. We will definitely rent this house again!

Great house for a family vacation with enough room to host guests

  • 5 of 5

Loved that there was lake entry right on the property, and that the water was pretty shallow (a few feet) in the cove in front of the house. Attentive property manager. Plenty of room to spread out in the house.
