Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We traveled with a group of six adults and seven teenagers. The home was more than accommodating for a group of that size. Tony (the owner) could not have been more of a pleasure to work with. He was always prompt in responding to any inquiries and is available if needed. In addition, Tony purchased paddle boards during our stay that the kids loved (this was in addition to the kayaks he already had available). The house is well kept up with newer furnishings and the kitchen supplies are more then you would need. The home is easy to find and conveniently located at the front of the street while being nearby to many shops, restaurants, etc. located throughout Alexandria. You do need your own boat and it is not a big lake but very quiet. We had a fishing boat but rented a pontoon that they delivered to the boat ramp. Our time was mainly spent enjoying the lake on the pontoon. There are access channels to other areas if you have a smaller boat. Not a great fishing lake, we primarily caught pan fish, bass and northern (on the small side), but good enough. The deck space is large with many options for where you would want to sit (multi-level deck). Even with a large group you never feel crowded. Wood is stocked and supplied for the bon fire pit. If the need arises, there are multiple TVs located throughout the house but they do not include cable, but do have Netflix. Wifi is good considering the number of devices we had connected to it. Beds were comfortable as was the other furniture. As with others, I would suggest a hand rail for the basement but everything else was wonderful. Thank you Tony for a memorable vacation!

This home is great for large gatherings

  • 5 of 5

We booked this home for a large family gathering. It has an open floor plan and worked very well to accommodate our large group. We enjoyed the large deck and the gorgeous view of Lake Cowdry. The kitchen is well furnished with needed cooking items. We did feel the stairway to the basement might benefit with some form of handrail. Bathrooms could use more towel bars and towel ring or bar by sink for hand towels. Basement bedrooms are very nice but could use blinds or shades for privacy. Bedrooms would also benefit from lamps at bedside. The home was clean. Quiet neighborhood. We loved the beautiful lake and enjoyed playing on the lake. The fire pit area is very nice but it is dark if there is not a large fire burning. The area is beautiful with fun downtown shopping. Nice dining places in the area. Our family would recommend this home to our friends and we would love to use it again for our family.

Spacious, clean home on Lake Cowdry

  • 4 of 5

My family really enjoyed our stay in Tony's home on Lake Cowdry. There was plenty of room for our family to relax. The deck and outside space was really nice. My son, my mom, and I had a lot of fun with the kayaks and paddle boards.

It was a beautiful home and we would love to return another summer.

Great place to stay, but needs some tweaks.

  • 4 of 5

We had a great stay! My family of 9 adults and 9 children were very entertained with the nearby beach, the lake right out in front of us, and the kayaks and paddle boards! We were very grateful for the weed roller. The weeds in Lake Cowdry are widespread, so having some lake that was weed-free was much appreciated! We brought a Maui Mat and a boat for tubing so that also brought some fun!

The kitchen seems pretty well stocked. Some more serving bowls would have been nice, along with some Tupperware to store leftovers.

The bathrooms really need hooks to hang towels. And a shelf or cabinet to store belongings would be nice as well. There wasn't a hand towel anywhere which was odd, so having a few of these would be helpful.

There seems to be a bee hive in the house near the air conditioner. Bees were everywhere, 2 people were stung.

Now, the stairs going down to the basement. Very unsafe. So unsafe that my sister-in-law fell down them and damaged her shoulder. She was so injured that she had to sleep on one of the couch recliners the last night, icing it every two hours because of the pain. Thank goodness the incident happened the night before we left so she didn't have to be in pain while the rest of us enjoyed the outdoors. You NEED handrails. This is no joke.

Clean, comfortable, and great atmosphere

  • 5 of 5

We had high expectations and all were met with this rental. It was super clean, right next to town but really quiet on the lake. Spent every night around the fire and days were filled with kayaks, paddle boards, and fishing. New wash machine and dryer and three full baths for clean up. Had a supper for fourteen on the patio with a great view. Friendly neighbors and fully stocked home made for a great stay. Thank you so much.

The property was immaculate and beautiful.

  • 5 of 5

We all enjoyed are stay at Tony's house very much. We had 10 adults and 6 teenagers staying there. He stopped over to introduce himself and ask if we needed anything but did not bother us. The refrigerator and freezer had ample room for our needs. The washer and dryer were top of the line. The beds were comfortable and the outside deck had a beautiful view of the lake as we drank our morning coffee. Tony had plenty of firewood for the fire pit. There was plenty of room to spread out and not be on top of each other. The only issue would be the stairs leading to the lower level. They were a bit narrow in some places and we had a gramma who had a walker and needed to sleep on the lower level but we made due. Thank you Tony so much for sharing your amazing house. We look forward to staying there in the future.
