Perfect Thanksgiving week!!
Perfect Thanksgiving week!!
My family rented "the Ritz" for a long Thanksgiving weekend..........our group included 15 people, ages 2-72, from Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Tennessee, and Alabama!! We had the most wonderful time at this beautiful house! The "kids" (all of us, actually), spent lots of time in the gameroom, on the basketball court, around the fireplace (watching football), at the outdoor fireplace, and on the back deck watching people play horseshoes or beanbag toss!! There was never a dull moment, AND you could always escape to a quiet place to be alone from time to time!! The two kitchens came in very handy when we prepared Thanksgiving dinner! The downstairs bedroom is a wonderful place to escape the hustle and bustle of a full house!! The sunsets are more beautiful than any we've ever seen!! Glorious!! The two laundry rooms were very convenient, and we especially enjoyed hiding all of our ice chests and crates in the downstairs laundry room just around the corner from the kitchen! Owner Steve met us when we arrived and gave us the grand tour; the fireplace was roaring, and the player piano was softly playing! This house has everything you need to have a perfect vacation.....dishes, pots and pans, towels, linens, etc. I don't know if we ever saw all of the closets filled with linens, towels, and mats for sleeping extra people!! Thank you so much for a perfect place for family to gather for Thanksgiving!!

My family rented this spectacular home for a week in June 2010. We were the first renters of this home so I was a little worried. First I have to say that the Sheffield's (the owners) are very gracious. They went out of their way to insure that we had everythng we needed and more. Our week was perfect. There were 6 adults and 6 children staying for the week. We were all very comfortable. The house is very clean and very well cared for. It is beautifuly built, beautifuly decorated and I might add, not a thing left out. The game room above the garage was in constant use by the teenagers in the evening. They could be as loud as they wanted and kept none of us old folk awake. The downstairs kitchen came in very handy for evening barbeques on the patio with spectacular views of the lake. We lived on the boat dock! The second story is partially covered and was great for those of us that are NOT sun worshipers. The kids loved jumping off the top deck on the dock. The owners gave us one boat slip for our ski boat and there was plenty of room to safely tie up our fishing boat to the dock as well. This house is on big water and the views are incredible. I enjoyed my morning cup of coffee on the dock (around 5am) while my husband dropped his line in the water. The home has a storm shelter too which gave us peace of mind. There is plenty of parking for guests and a seperate parking area for the boat trailers. The grounds are professionally landscaped and manicured. There were bikes available for biking around the beautiful gated neighborhood. It was a strange story that lead us to the RITZ and the Sheffield's. God knew exactly what my family needed last summer and guided us to a little slice of heaven. It was worth every penny, I only wish I could go back every year. You will enjoy staying at this incredible home and if you are, I am jealous!
