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!

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!!

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!

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 !! :)
