Photos do not do justice for this place! Very clean and plenty of room for our family of six.

  • 5 of 5

You could not ask for a better place. There are 6 in our family so we had more room than we needed. Beach is very well kept, and we spent several hours playing volleyball. Water was clean and warm. Very few people on the lake all week so we pretty much had the whole lake to ourselves. Kayaks were a huge plus and the kids all had fun using them. Really nothing negative can be said about this vacation house! I'm sure we will come back to this location, but we did not make a reservation because we can't plan this far in advance with our schedules. If you're looking to get away and relax this is the perfect destination. We did not want to visit any attractions or parks, so I can't say if this is a good or bad location for that type of vacation. We also brought our dog and even he loved everything about the place! I would be the first to say if there were any issues and I can tell you there were NONE!!

We had a wonderful Labor Day Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

This is our 3rd time vacationing at The Lake House!

The house is beautiful with plenty of room for a big family. The boat ramp at the house is good to launch a bass boat, but definitely need 4x4 to access it. The beach and boathouse is perfect for swimming, fishing and just relaxing! We will be back!

Beautiful home and surroundings

  • 4 of 5

Overall the stay was amazing. Pictures do no justice! Home had everything you needed to be comfortable. Extremely quiet. Rooms had ample room to move around. 3 convenient bathrooms which were beautiful. A couple a downfalls were the water and the refrigerator. Not being use to the smell of well water we were a little grossed out by the smell and how pungent it reall was. 2nd was the refrigerator...ice maker was extremely slow to make ice, Popsicles that were placed there on our arrival, still were not frozen 2 days later (bottom door compartment), ice cream was extremely soft and fridge was not that cold.

Other than that, we would definately consider going back to the home! You will definitely enjoy your stay!

Fantastic Time!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and family, a total of about 16 people were invited to celebrate our 30th Wedding Anniversary some stayed at the house and others stayed at a near by hotel that was pretty convenient. It was the perfect spot. The house had plenty of room to set up a photo booth, Karaoke stage, and a large cake table. The kitchen was awesome too. The lake was beautiful and we had a photographer take some awesome pictures. The house was perfect. Would definitely stay again and recommend to others.
