About Shawna Sims

The house was set up for rentals beginning in June of 2013.

Shawna Sims purchased this house in 1950

This is the perfect place for our family reunions! There is not one thing we would change. The home is well-stocked with everything you need -- for in the home and at the lake. Love it!

Wonderful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful home! We had Christmas at the lake. Grand Serendipity was kind enough to get a pre lit Christmas tree and some ornaments so the kids could decorate it. Even though the weather was warm, we enjoyed the great fireplace and roasted marshmallows. The pool table in the guest house was also a big hit. We were missing some but the ones that made it loved the place. Plenty of room and the loft, wow, the kids loved sleeping there. I bet that during the summer this place would be awesome. We will definitely stay there again! One of the best Christmases ever!

Perfect House for a Wedding

  • 5 of 5

We rented this beautiful home for my wedding and it was absolutely perfect. It was a very small wedding (only 10 family members and that's including my husband and I). Everyone had a wonderful time! Before we even left, we were already talking about returning next year. The property is very well maintained and the view is incredible. We had two kids with us (ages 12 & 3) and eight adults. The kids (and adults) never got bored as there are a ton of things to do at this lake house. The water mat was a huge hit...we played on it every day we were there. Working with Shawna was great as well...she was always very quick to reply to any questions I had via email or phone. You will not regret staying here!

Wonderful Family Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

Our entire family spent three nights here and loved it! Both the main and guest houses were well stocked and had everything you could need. When the water trampoline had been damaged by previous guests, they bought a water mat for us to use. This was such a blessing for our little ones to get into the water. We absolutely loved the kayak's. This is a very family friendly place with multiple bathrooms, plenty of beds and lots of space to enjoy.
