Let it be known that this house is not an empty "rental unit" place with nothing in it. We live at this house at least 1 or 2 days a week so while every room has closet space and drawers reserved for guests, you may find another closet filled with our personal things. We may have condiments in the door of the refrigerator. YOU ARE WELCOME TO USE THE CONDIMENTS AND SPICES ETC. FOR COOKING, and many of our guests love this convenience. 1 or 2 guests have complained that the house is not like an empty rental condo or a Sheraton hotel, but we believe this is precisely what VRBO and similar sites offer that make them different from renting an empty condo or hotel room(s) on Expedia or Hotwire. Nevertheless, we feel now we must tell people of this fact and not to expect an empty condo unit-type place. We have also noticed that elderly guests seem to sometimes complain about the stairs, the futon bed, the weather etc., and we feel this property may not be ideally suited for them.

Relaxing winter experience on the lake

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful stay at the Sandels' home with friends to celebrate my birthday. Despite the rain and cold weather, we had a great time sitting in the living room playing games and enjoying the view. First VRBO experience and we all kept saying we couldn't believe how spacious and cozy the home was and it would be an excellent place to visit in the warmer months. Nicky and Mike were welcoming, responsive, and helpful throughout the process, which I appreciated. No complaints - would highly recommend to families and groups of friends!

They were responsive and the house was lovely!

  • 4 of 5

This house is right on the lake and very beautiful! The hot tub is great and having 6 bedrooms gave everyone privacy. We were 11 adults and everyone had a bed. The living room was a little tight for that many adults, buy we cozied up during a snow storm, watched movies and played Just Dance on wii... lots of fun!! Views from the hot tub are amazing! One thing, if you enjoy cooking and plan to cook a lot, I recommend bringing your own knives, ladels, etc. Overall a wonderful experience in a beautiful, cozy house!!! We recommend.

Amazing lakefront weekend

  • 5 of 5

Had the most amazing time this weekend staying at this gorgeous lakefront house! We wanted to go away for the weekend with our dog baby and 2 couple friends and their babies. Each family had their own floor, so we weren't on top of one another. The living area is great and comfortable and the view is to die. The kids loved the little sand "beach." We got to go in the lake, cook dinners. There were 0 complaints all around!!! Can't wait to make a plan to come back next year!!

Close to NY and has all you need

  • 5 of 5

Just came back from an awesome weekend stay at the Sandels' place (Nicky and Mike). House was in great condition with all the rooms perfectly clean, quality linens and a wide abundance of towels. There is plenty of space here to fit 12 adults with rooms for everyone and people can gather at different places (beach, hot tub, living room, lake).

The Sandels were quick to respond to any questions we had. Their house is perfect for a large group looking to swim and relax. Couldn't have asked for anything better!
