Great Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent week at Gary and Vicki's vacation home! Usually you think it won't look as good as the pictures, but this property is even better than the pictures. When we arrived, the home was spotless and very well organized. The owners have thought of everything that you might need during your stay. We stayed along with our 2 sons and their wives as well as our 16 month old grandson so the 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms worked well for us. We spent most of our time in the screened in patio and lakeside. The lake is just the right size and the neighbors are very friendly. Gary and Vicki definitely have a great place that we would recommend to anyone!

We had the absolute best week in this lake home. It is the perfect piece of Lake property. The owners have thought if every detail to make your stay enjoyable. There is a paddle board, kayak, firepit, screened-in porch, plenty of green space on the lake side, and a beautiful sandy beach. The home is impeccable. The comforts of a year round home, right on the lake. Great for entertaining or just a relaxing escape for your family. We will definitely be returning.

We truly had a wonderful time! The house/cabin is extremely neat, clean and cozy. The kitchen area is huge and has everything you need. The bedrooms are big and the bed are very comfortable. The lake was so clean. We all enjoyed playing in the water with the standing paddle board, kayak, swimming, and floating on tubes. We caught a ton of fish off the dock and from our boat. Our boys are younger and they just loved it at your place. Everything about our weeks stay at your place was just amazing! The screened in porch was nice to have meals and relax in the evening and morning. The yard was nice and so is the fire pit area with the chairs. We would definitely recommend this place to everyone and anyone. We felt at home here and we hope to be back another time. You have a beautiful place!

Each member of our family had an awesome time at the Jewel of Jewett! Our college-age kids had a blast on the beach and in the lake with a plethora of activities in an ideal beach and lake environment: paddle boarding, kayaking, swimming, and catching fish right off the dock! The spacious lawn provided great space for lawn games, easily satisfying both shade and sun lovers. As the top chef and chief dish-and-bottle-washer, I loved the spacious, bright kitchen equipped with everything one could need on vacation (including a dish washer) to make meal preparation and clean-up pleasurable and convenient. Plenty of room for family interaction, though! Three beautiful bathrooms and a handy laundry room were extremely convenient for our active household of eight! We had a great time! Gary and Vicki are ideal hosts!

A Great Time

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this beautiful location. The cabin was so comfortable and the screen porch is where we spent most of our time at meals, in the evening, and during a day of rain. The beach was perfect for my grandchildren and my family. I was impressed with the cleanliness of the property, which is so important to me.

Thank you Gary and Vicki for a great time.
