"Truly a mansion...tons of amenities...well stocked! We enjoyed the weekend immensely, and The Lake House was definitely well appointed! The kitchen was fabulous, with tons of space and open adjoining living areas provided plenty of room for our family reunion that hosted on one afternoon, eighteen adults and five children! So many living areas for us all to be able to spread out and enjoy each other's company. Two separate football watch parties for the Oklahoma Sooner fans as well as the Arkansas Fans, between the main Family Room and the Theater Room! The four larger bedrooms had "on suite bathrooms" and the other two beds shared a bath...providing plenty of beds for the ten overnight family members. We could have packed in another half dozen between sofas in various rooms if we really wanted to! The basement area with one bedroom suite, the Gameroom, Theater Room and walk out patio to the pool and lakeside docks were the other favorite hang outs besides the kitchen/family room on the main level. The pool table was the every nite entertainment until we would give up the ghost! But, only one pool cue...
The inside of the house was very clean, very well appointed with furniture and comfortable beds and most everthing worked well. The outside areas were basically well kept, but with typical lake home webs on the balcony and patio area...a little elbow grease cleared the areas we chose to use, but could have been addressed before our arrival fairly easily. The pool was very nice and used daily, however, the service never showed to clean leaves from the bottom and we couldn't find a pool leaf rake to clean it ourselves...nice salt water system, too!
Overall, we were very pleased with The Lake House and would definitely stay here again! The owners were available for any questions and checked on us via text several times during our stay! And, such wonderful views of the lake and sunrise!
We would have given it 5 stars, but just a few things for such a wonderful house that could have been in better repair to match the overall impressiveness of the "estate"...appliances in the game room that were missing, tiny TV's in the bedrooms and Gameroom, a few more seats in the Theater Room, a jetted tub that didn't work(maybe sis couldn't figure it out), a little more attention to cleaning up the balcony and patio areas...would have made it absolutely perfect! But, this really is nitpicking...we really did enjoy the house and our stay!
