Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We were three families traveling with kids. 6 adults, 7 kids. The adults all had a bedroom, and the kids spread out on coaches and in the pool house. It was perfectly fine for kids, and might be for some adults too. Just be aware that there are only 3 bedrooms in the house, and 2 of them share a bath. The bedrooms are big enough for additional air mattresses if needed.

The property was beautiful and the owners were so helpful. Randy even worked his magic to restore power to the house after a strong storm blew in. We were prepared to be out of power for the night, but only had to last about an hour. We were so impressed with his responsiveness. The kids LOVED the pool. The slide and party lights were so much fun. The view is fantastic - breathtaking sunsets in particular, and it as beautiful to watch the storms blowing in across the hills.

The kitchens/bars had everything we needed to cook in the entire weekend. Once we arrived, we only left the house for frozen custard 3 miles down the road, so all three families cooked and ate in the entire weekend. We could not have been happier with our stay - highly recommend!

Beautiful Property!

  • 5 of 5

If you are wanting a relaxing getaway with all of the amenities of home and more, then you will want to stay at this property. We had a large family gathering and stayed for 3 nights. We absolutely did not want to leave. There are plenty of fish in the lake just down the hill for everyone to catch fish (bass, crappie, and bluegill). The heated pool and hot tub was well maintained and so much fun for all of us. The outdoor kitchen with the BBQ grill and sink was just as amazing and I think we ate all of our meals outside which made cleanup a breeze. The technology at the house was awesome, from the smart touchscreen refrigerator to the multicolored light in the pool. There are flat screen TVs available throughout the house and under the pool house awning outside with satellite service available. The Wi-Fi available is of commercial grade and very fast and everyone in our group had fast Internet access for their devices. The property itself is well maintained with beautiful landscaping and flowers. There are several sitting locations throughout the property with a fire pit and beautiful garden area near the lake. We have no complaints and Randy was very accommodating if we needed anything. We actually did not need anything on this particular trip but felt very comfortable in contacting the owners if we did. You can tell that this is the owners home away from home and that a lot of love and hard work has went into making this property gorgeous! Thank you for allowing us to stay and we hope to back someday real soon!..............John

What my sisters and I look for in a place to host our annual get-togethers is something that's clean and comfortable, with places to gather as well as space to spread out; a well-appointed kitchen where we can cook; a home that brings the outside in, yet allows easy access to the outdoors; a peaceful setting where we can visit, take walks, enjoy a fresh breeze or a lovely view. Big Oak Lodge scores an A+. We enjoyed walking the hills, swimming, soaking in the hot tub, sitting by the fire, lounging by the pool, and even frisbee golf! Thanks to the Kaisers for sharing this beautiful home with us, we enjoyed it very much!

Breathtaking views!

  • 5 of 5

My family had a wonderful time, we enjoyed the lake view from the house and all the colors from the flower gardens. We used the heated pool, the outdoor fireplace and really enjoyed the grilling station. This is a well kept home. Thanks so much for sharing your home! I would recommend this spot to anyone looking for a quite private getaway.
