Relaxing home right on the lake!

  • 5 of 5

We had this home for 5 nights and it was such a pleasant stay! What impressed me the most was the first time I walked out the covered dining/porch area to see the view of the lake and walked out onto the private dock. It has bench seating at the end of the long dock and to sit out there at sunset was the most relaxing part of my day! It was so peaceful.

Shawn was so great to communicate with and we had no problems at all! The house was very clean, plenty of room and was the perfect house to fit our needs. Could not have been more pleased with our stay!

Relaxing from the moment you step foot on the property...

  • 5 of 5

While we chose this vacation home based on the positive reviews and beautiful pictures, neither of those actually did this home justice. From the moment we stepped through the door, we knew that we wouldn't want to leave. From the floors to the walls to the furniture, the whole house is constructed with the utmost craftsmanship and attention to detail. The largest bedroom has beautiful views of the lake, and thoughtfully, the owners put a covering on the windows, so you can see out but others cannot see in, meaning you literally wake up to beautiful views of the lake. The screened in porch is the perfect retreat from the hot sun, while you still feel as though you are outside. While the home is convenient to area stores and restaurants, you still feel away from it all when you arrive back at The Lake House. The dock is very spacious - many people can comfortably fish at once, and all of us caught record size bass! It's also a romantic space to enjoy the lovely sunsets over the lake. Don't miss it! During this visit I was recuperating from an injury (making the interior views all the more cherished), but next time we visit, we definitely plan to bring our kayaks and paddleboards - maybe even the fishing boat - with space for all of those boats on the dock. All the neighbors are friendly, and overall, it was a relaxing atmosphere and tremendous getaway. Thank you to Shawn, the owner, for sharing his beautiful home. He certainly aims to please!
