"We stayed in this lovely home from July 27 through August 1 for our family reunion. There were 17 of us from 9 months to 75 years. Everyone had a great time. The young people gathered around the pool table in the evenings and the oldsters congregated on the lower level patio. The bedrooms and the bathrooms are large, tastefully decorated and comfortable. It was great having 2 complete kitchens which were well stocked. Having a house right on the water was great! The children were able to float around where we could keep an eye on them. We rented a boat one afternoon and could pull it right up to our own dock. One day we went to the Magic Springs and Chrystal Springs amusement parks which were both lots of fun. The property was clean and well maintained. (The grills could use a good cleaning. We put foil down on the grates.) The property is located in a very quiet neighborhood. Ann was very friendly and great to work with. I would recommend this home for any large family or group of couples. You will have a fantastic time!"

Beautiful home right on the lake with amazing view! Perfect for a family reunion!
"We had a wonderful family reunion here with four generations and as many as 24 people at the end of the week! Although only 8 adults (with 2 more at the end of the week) and 4 kids actually stayed in the home, we all gathered here to swim and enjoy family time together. What a perfect spot! The home is beautiful and with three separate sitting areas (keeping room area in kitchen, living room, and upstairs game room) plus the patio. My 89 and 90-year-old parents enjoyed their chairs in the living room which were easy for them to get in and out of and also gave them a great view of the kids swimming in the lake! The water wasn't too deep around the dock and perfect for kids to swim or fish. We had considered renting a larger home but it was on a hill and we would have had to go down many steps to the lake! This house is just a couple of steps down to the lake! Perfect!
The kitchen was well stocked with pots and pans (but you might need to bring some baking pans and extra eating utensils) and the Viking range thrilled the cooks in our group. WiFi kept everyone "connected." There was a gas grill on the side of the house which was perfect for cook outs. It was also nice having a large spread-out kitchen with a breakfast bar and plenty of counter space so multiple people could be working at the same time. The huge walk-in pantry was a bonus too! And it was great having two half baths on the main level. Even the few times that all 24 people were there, no one had to wait for a bathroom!
The location of the home is perfect. Right on the lake but minutes to town. It is located just off Central Ave. and close to a marina to rent boats.
I had packed a card table but didn't need to use it since they had two tables and folding chairs in the closet under the stairs. There were a few little things that didn't work when we got there (like the ice maker but it really wasn't a problem for us because we would have still needed to buy bags of ice for our crowd) but all were minor and didn't spoil our trip one bit. Having an extra fridge in the garage was great too.
I have rented many vacation homes over the years but Sue's home tops the list as our favorite. She sent me a great list of restaurant suggestions as well as detailed directions to the house. Everyone had a great time, especially my parents, and we can't wait to come back! Thanks for making our family reunion such a great one!"
