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!

Memorable Family Reunion on Easter Weekend

  • 4 of 5

My family and I really enjoyed our stay at the lake house and would definitely consider coming back in the future. We built some memorable moments at the lake house during the Easter weekend and the sunsets over the lake were spectacular.

Our perfect day!

  • 5 of 5

We rented both the main house and the coach house next door for our wedding weekend. Prior to picking our location we drove by the properties we were considering and met the owners of this property. They were gracious enough to stop and talk to us, give us a tour, update us on the area and give us suggestions that helped to make this a perfect weekend! We had absolutely beautiful weather and the multiple areas on the grounds, including 2 decks, gave us plenty of space to put a food tent and tables & chairs. We used the boat house for our bar and got married on the beach. The kids enjoyed the play area and we rented a pontoon boat from the local marina for guest rides. The property manager, Jason, was attentive and helpful with anything we needed. The house is spacious and had plenty of room for our immediate family to stay together. The coach house was a great place for my daughter's family to stay with her children. I would definitely recommend this property! Parking was a little challenging in this residential location (we had approx. 80 guests), however, Jason went out of his way to find us alternatives and contacted the local neighborhood association to let them know we would have several cars in the neighborhood. Thanks so much to the owners and Jason for providing us with a great location and for going out of your way to make sure we had everything we needed to make this a picture perfect weekend!!

Great family property, great location

  • 4 of 5

A perfect lakeside retreat for our family reunion. Jason did everything possible to address issues, accommodate requests and make our stay very enjoyable. We had a parking issue which Jason resolved by letting us use the driveway next door.

From property management standpoint we would certainly rent anything managed by Jason. The house (especially bathrooms) need updating. I believe Jason mentioned projects that will help. Overall a positive experience. One minor complaint is that there were not enough dish towels or dish cloths!!
