Fantastic Escape to the Lake of the Woods

  • 5 of 5

We have rented a couple different houses within this community and we have to say this house is by far the best. The kitchen has everything you need and several things you likely don't. The fact that you have it stocked with all the necessities, is so wonderful. The couches are extremely comfortable. The outdoor living space of the decking would have been more than enough but then there was the patio at the water's edge. The views are lovely: enjoyed Keurig coffee while the sun rose across the lake; sipped adult beverages as the sun set behind the house. The linens are fresh. The towels large and soft. Everything was more then we expected, Thank you! We wish your place was available Mother's Day weekend, but We will definitely be back!

A beautiful home stocked with lots of amenities in a gorgeous location

  • 5 of 5

Our multi-generational family loved our time at "Water Water Everywhere"! The house is spacious and perfectly suited to both large and small groups. The kitchen has everything you need to cook large family meals, there's lots of seating throughout the inside and outdoors, the house is very nicely decorated and the owners kindly supplied all linens, towels, paper goods, condiments, etc. The kids adored the warm water and the adults enjoyed kayaking, canoeing and SUP. We're hoping to go back for 2 weeks next year!

What a gorgeous, well-appointed home with a beautiful spot on the lake!

  • 5 of 5

This home is beautifully decorated, well laid out, and appointed with every amenity you can imagine - and more! Our family had a terrific time and can't wait to return! The only things that weren't perfect are the mattresses in the downstairs bedroom and the Shell bedroom. They could use replacement. I was lucky as my Boat Slip mattress was sooo comfy!

Other than that, perfection personified!

Wonderfully peaceful lake house just perfect for a relaxing vacation.

  • 4 of 5

With four families, it was great to be under one roof for vacation. The house was great and supplies with some many games, activities and lake toys to keep everyone busy. We all enjoyed the peaceful cove in the lake, especially the kids. The kids also enjoyed fishing right from the shore. Overall everyone hoped to come back and enjoy the home again soon. Thanks for your hospitality!
