I never give five stars because I believe there is always room for improvement, but this is one of the best by far!! 4-3/4.
We stayed three nights with our parents and were very comfortable. One son lives near and brought his boat and stayed with us also.
Our parents were born in the thirtys, comfort and accessibility are essential. They stayed relaxed and loved the back porch. They caught the morning sun to start their day and evening shade to wind down.
The home is very open and large. Beds are in good shape and not one complaint of a bad mattress. Never a problem with bathrooms, plenty of hot water and towels. Kitchen was roomy and large dining table for family meal. Cozy Living room with plenty of seating to pile up and watch movie.
The dock area is one of the best in area! I personally spent most of my time here, I love the water! Sunshine and fishing, and we did catch fish from the dock, bass and bluegill.
The dock is well lit with lights on every corner and inside dockhouse. It was a tad messy, keeping in mind this is a rental property, with only a few minutes of organizing it was the hot spot for everyone. Table and chairs on deck. Also four reclining sun chairs, 2 inflatable floats, two set of water wings, and a mop and broom inside. Three lifts with powered garage doors, one for jet ski and step down tie-ups all around. The steps into the water were slick but with a little elbow grease the winter algae was removed providing easy access into and out of the water. The steps go down chest deep into water, just walk out and walk in.
Landscaped lawn had just been mowed. Some over growth of flower beds but not a problem. Trees and beds gave privacy. Large lot with play area for children.
Plenty of parking once in but driveway but entrance is narrow,, One thing, there is a knee high wall in drivway/parking area, be aware.
Overall, a great time had by all. The home sleeps 12 and we were about half that. We are older and like our space, But a younger group would not be crowded in this large home.
We also found a great place for home cooking, great food, thanks to our son. It's called "Galen's", Reasonably priced, good friendly service with daily specials around $8.00. Take a right outta Honeycomb, about four miles on left. Dont be afraid of all the cars, they get ya in and out. We had no wait.
We hope to return to Honeycomb Retreat!"
