"Wish we could have stayed longer..."
Your house is so very lovely. We felt right at home. We especially enjoyed the lake view and all the inspiring paintings. Your kitchen is very pleasant to cook a meal in. We wish we could have stayed longer. No sight of the fox, but we did spot the eagle and many lizards. (Also, the European influence really did remind us of traveling...if only this lake was the Mediterranean Sea!) Thanks for the hospitality!

All I can say is "WOW"
All I can say is "WOW"
What a fantastic place to relax and enjoy time with our friends. The home has everything. We couldn't think of one thing we should have brought. The home is beautifully decorated with paintings by the owner Annette. The games and kitchen were big hits. The only negative thing I can think of is that we couldn't stay longer. Thanks Bob and Annette for a memorable weekend at the lake. God bless, Brian

What a view!
What a view!
We had a family get together here for 5 adults and 4 children. Great views of the lake from every one of the bedrooms. Kitchen is fabulous - great appliances, lots of dishes, glasses for every need. The coffee bar is just great - two coffee makers so as soon as one got low, we put on another pot. The kids had so much fun using all the sports equipment - basketball, soccer, bocci ball, frisbee, and on and on. The board games got a lot of use also. Lovely linens. The view of the lake is just gorgeous. We had the fall foliage as well. We ate outside on the deck overlooking the deck. No problem seating nine. The screened in porch off the kitchen was the perfect place for conversations and sipping drinks. I anticipate a return.

Owner response: We love hearing that our guests have enjoyed the house as much as we do! Thank you for the wonderful comments. Fall is probably one of our most favorite times at the lake house with all the trees in full color and the sound of the wind in the trees at night. We will continue to strive to make the experience for our guests even better all the time so that the next time they visit there will be something new to discover, explore and enjoy.
Wonderful stay at the lake. The house is simply beautiful and view is perfect! We had a little mishap with a broken lamp shade and a two year old at the beginning of the trip, but it didn't ruin our stay. The house has everything you would need; good shampoos, conditioners, soap, paper products, condiments, etc., we just bought the food and cooked out. We highly recommend this property!

Owner response: It is always rewarding to hear of our guest's satisfaction with our home on Grand Lake. We do try to constantly add new things to make the experience fun and memorable. We spend each winter and spring "tweaking" the house so it gets better every year for our guests. We get a lot of new ideas from staying in VRBO properties all over the world - the best way to feel at home in a foreign country or a different city.

Perfect House and Perfect Location
Perfect house and perfect location on the lake. What a view. ... It was good to get family together again under good circumstances. Coming out from California and getting my Oklahoma family together is priceless. I'm grateful for the use of your beautiful home. Helen takes care of all details. No stone unturned. Look forward to another stay one day.

The home with its European feel
The A.. family thoroughly enjoyed ourselves! The home with its European feel was a welcome retreat from Kansas City. The lake was fun as was the fishing! Most of all the family time was precious and such a blessing!

Another great stay - like we did 3 years ago!
Our family had another great stay- like we did 3 years ago! The lake was beautiful - we enjoyed renting a boat and skiing. Our crew wasnt very successful catching fish - too warm probably? The weather was warm-only one shower. Lots of dominoes, cooking and movie watching. Learned how to use a French press for espresso - delicious. Kids enjoyed all the additional games - basketball, ping pong, etc. Our Arizona family with OK roots loved our vacation! Thank you for the gift basket.

Amazing Time!Guest comment entered by owner
We had a wonderful time during our stay. We spent time cooking, tubing, fishing and just having a great time. We enjoyed all the sunny days and swam quite a bit. We will now have even more great memories shared with our family. We all truly loved being here. It was an amazing time! Thanks!

Absolutely the Most Beautiful Place
Thank you so much for letting us share your house. It is absolutely the most beautiful place. We had a great time with family and friends. We all loved the ping pong table and had a small tournament going. We swam and had a great time at the dock. We played guitars and sang on the back porch. We also made smores in the kitchen. My mom had a great time in the kitchen as she loves to cook. We hope we can come back again and are already talking about next year.

Luxury lake living at it's finest
Luxury lake living at it's finest
If you want the pleasure of staying in a beautiful home on a marvelous lot that is quiet yet close to the action then look no further. We have enjoyed Gand Lake for many years and we knew the Ellis home was it a great location, approx. half way between the damn and Shangri-La by water. The pictures on the listing are great and do represent the home well but nothing is like the real thing. I met Helen who walked me through the home and showed me where everything was and how to operate it, very nice woman. Annette and Bob have the home well stocked with everything you would ever need for cooking great meals in the gourmet kitchen or using the wonderful Weber gas grill. The outdoor living space is extremely well set up with multiple areas to relax and look at the main lake from all. Speaking of views, every room has a great view of the lake and there is a nice dock for swimming or fishing. From beach towels to games to HDTV's the Ellis home has you covered so don't hesitate, this is the place to be on Grand Lake. PS, the original artwork is also something that you won't want to miss, great work Annette.

Owner response: Bill, Thank you so much for your kind and generous words about our home on Grand Lake. It is hard to think of everything our guests might like but we do try to make the house even better with each passing year. Our house manager, Helen, does such a super job of meeting our guests, giving them a grand tour of the house and answering any questions they might have. She puts the finishing touches on the place before our guests arrive and solves any problems that might arise. In addition, we get a lot of satisfaction making the house a special vacation haven that hopefully will provide families and friends with great memories of Grand Lake. Hearing that our guests have had a wonderful time makes it all worth it for us! Thank you again for taking the time to post a review!

Year Purchased: 2000
About the owner: We completed construction on our lake house in 2000. Since Bob retired from practicing medicine in 2006, we enjoy traveling and spending the summers in Wisconsin near Lake Michigan. Our favorite seasons at the lake are Fall and Spring. The lake has always been a great place to create warm memories for us as well as our friends and we hope you will feel the magic here as well.
Why the Owner Chose Grand Lake of the Cherokees:
We actually bought the property back in 1992. There was originally an old 1950's house that had no curb appeal and we saw the potential. The fact that we have 600+ feet of shoreline and a protected cove for our boat dock made it the perfect location as well as the fact we are at the end of the road!
The Unique Benefits at this House:
There are actually five separate porches (three are covered) where you can sit out and enjoy the world or chat with your friends and family. It is intimate and yet everyone can easily have their own space. You can also sit down at the table on the dock and enjoy the sounds of nature or share a meal. Another feature we offer is our wonderful home manager Helen. We could never rent the house without Helen's help. Helen coordinates our housekeeping crew and makes sure everything is in perfect order for your stay. She will meet you at the house and show you it's special features and answer any questions you may have. We have rented houses where no one meets you, the key is missing and the house was not cleaned properly so we know how important those details are to anyone choosing to rent a luxury home or apartment.
