A beautiful spot on Lake Francis

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful vacation at this home on Lake Elysian. We were 7 adults and 3 children, four and under. The house is spacious inside and the lot is large and gently sloping to the lake. Our stay was the first week of June 2017 and since the weather was perfect, we spent a lot of time outside and on the lake. Fishing was excellent and wildlife abundant. The kids enjoyed seeing bald eagles, blue herons, wild turkeys, turtles laying eggs, deer, wood chucks, gray squirrels, muskrats, and a raccoon.

The suites and bedrooms were roomy and the living areas very accommodating. We ate all our meals at the house so we found the kitchen to be very functional. There are two coffeemakers and the large deck is a great place to have a morning cup of coffee. Chris is easily accessible and responds promptly to any questions. Our family created fond memories the week we spent at this property.

The lake house made a perfect Memorial Day retreat for our family.

  • 5 of 5

The Lake Francis home was a great place to spend a long weekend. It had everything that we needed. We were able to enjoy the lake, the sandy beach, the fire pit and the nice lawn area in back to play yard games. The house was quite large and easily fit 12 adults and 2 teenage boys. We would definitely stay here again if we can!!!

Large and Homey Cabin

  • 5 of 5

This a large home with a beautiful yard connected to a part of the lake with good fishing. Our whole family loved it - us, our kids, and grandkids. There was plenty of room in the house for all of us. Plenty of amenities. We also rented the pontoon. It was certainly worth it .

Lovely place on the lake

  • 4 of 5

The home was in great shape and very clean with a beautiful view of the lake. We enjoyed watching the beavers and ducks on the lake.

Plenty of room to spread out for a large crew.

Wonderful place for family time.

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed our stay in this lovely lakeside home. The five nice sized bedrooms and four and a half bathrooms was large enough for my husband and I and our four adult children and their spouses. The kitchen had everything we needed for preparing meals and the living room and family room were just right to spread out games and spend our time together. We are already looking forward to when we can come again.
