                        Thank you so much for allowing us to stay in your beautiful house. The lake is so serene and we loved all your paintings. You are very talented. Thanks for the coffee and wine. What a nice surprise. Hope we can do this again. (This was their second visit at the house)

                        "Wow, where do I begin. Our shoulders dropped two inches when we stepped thru the front door and saw the magnificent lake view; then they dropped another two inches when we walked out to the back porches. Immediate relaxation and serenity. Much needed after a 10 hour drive and working long hours. We got some much needed wonderful vacation time even while being host to a small family gathering. The weather was perfect and we were blessed with a full moon on the lake each night. Your home is so warm and inviting. This is the best house we have stayed in. The family members enjoyed the inside of the home as much as the great views. The kids had so much fun in the garage, ping pong table, and bocce ball area. The openness and the kitchen was wonderful for entertaining. Everything we needed could be found. Used the spices for ribs. Butcher pantry area was a great help. Everyone enjoyed going room to room to view the artwork. so many just loved sitting in the screened porch. We just love the look and feel of the place and we slept very well. ...Helen meeting us at the door and being just a phone call away is a wonderful piece of mind thing. Thanks so much for being on the internet to find this place and for opening your home to us.

We learned the art of relaxation all over again. The family fisherman was successful and had a great time. The family cook loved the gourmet kitchen. My mother was born in France and I loved the essence of the country throughout your house. If you will allow it - we will be back.

                        The "B..." family had a fantastic Labor Day weekend here at the Ellis House! We loved every minute from sunrise to sunset. We made the most of our time here with tubing, wake boarding and surfing, to visiting with friends across the lake, to collecting rocks & insects and other things, to big family style meals. This place is amazing! Thanks for sharing, Guy & Susan B & family

                        We arrived to the house, and were blown away! The house was way more then words can discribe. Private setting, but right on the main lake. The views were gorgeous from the time you wake up, to the time you go to sleep. The house manager was very polite and very helpful.(She can even set up and cater your meals) The owners, make you feel like your family. Just an amazing experience! Thank You again for sharing your wondreful home!

                        Owner response: We are always so thrilled to receive such nice comments about the lake house. Half of the fun is trying to think about what makes for a great and special vacation for friends and families. Knowing that our guests have created special memories is what it is all about. And when we hear they plan to come back again - well, it just doesn't get any better than that! Thank you again for the very kind words - we have a great team making it all happen.

                        "This place is AMAZING! Everyone should come here! It was spacious and so accommodating for us, our three daughters and their families to come together to make some memories. We loved our breakfasts on your porch, wading along the water's edge with our grandson, and games around the table at night. Thanks for providing the food for our bird watching. We saw two "woodchucks" quite frequently along the edge of the property too. The walk in closets were perfect for babies in their pac & plays. The extension cords you already had here worked for nite lights and monitors in there as well! Perfect! Thanks for sharing your home. And a special thanks for the Napa wine!! That was above and beyond pampering.

We enjoyed all of the little extra touches- you have thought of everything. It was a pleasure to wander the house and discover all of your beautiful artwork. We had a great week!

                        I rented this property for a week in July to accomodate both a girls trip and family time. The home is supplied with 95% of the things most people would have on hand at home, makes for a relaxing time since its a bit of a trek to a store. The flow of the home is great for both togetherness and personal privacy as well. Our favorite times were early morning sunrises and late night moon watching. The house manager Helen was helpful in orienting me to how everything worked. Other than the fact that the sleeper sofa mattresses really can not accomodate an adult comfortably, there isn't much to improve on here. Thank you for sharing your home with us!

                        Owner response: We always appreciate feedback on our house. I would like to mention that both of our sleeper couches are in the open loft area above the living room and both are considered standard "queen" sofas. Our newest one is made by American Leather which is the highest rated sleeper sofa on the market. I believe that our renter had sons who were 6'4" and I doubt even our queen beds in bedrooms would have been nearly as comfortable as had they slept in any of the two king bedrooms. I do agree that sleeper sofas in an open area are probably best suited for children.

                      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.
