"We enjoyed the place and lake very much. Only issues we had was wish we had a bigger boat and more hours in a day to enjoy it!
Houses were a bit close together from a "party" standpoint but neighbors were not bothersome."

"This is our third year rendezvousing at the Georgia Avenue house. Twenty of us comfortably enjoy each others company with plenty of living space and bathrooms. Even babies/toddlers/tired adults can nap without being disturbed by the liveliness of the rest of the household. Across the street from the entrance to the beach, walking distance to Washington Park, and a short drive to Al's Market for groceries. Linda, the property manager is a good communicator and does a solid job cleaning this huge home between guests. We look forward to returning next year--thanks, Allen!"

Great for large group - lots of beds & HUGE grounds to roam
"We had barn house & farmhouse. Since we mostly had adults in the farmhouse, it was always quiet there. The farmhouse has all window air conditioners (that only worked so-so) & ceiling fans. The barnhouse has the kitchen & all the living and eating areas plus full bathrooms on the main floor & upstairs. The vast majority of the barnhouse is rough-hewn wooden beams which makes it virtually indestructible. Compared to other rentals where I worry the kids might damage something, the barnhouse was great for the kids to play and run with no worries. There was 1 queen bed in the laundry room behind the kitchen on the main floor. Upstairs were 3 private bedrooms (2 with queen beds and 1 with a queen and a twin). There was also a big dormitory-style bunk room with 8 bunks that worked well for filling up with kids. The upstairs also has lots of tables & seating. Mostly the kids used it for playing board & card games or sitting on the sofas to watch TV. There was also a long bar where we sat & talked one evening. Plus there was an area with a very long table & chairs. We didn’t eat there but did move them out to make a big open space for our square dance. Elk Ridge Ranch is quite isolated from neighbors which made it nice so we could be as noisy as we wanted and not worry that we were bothering anyone. Also it was comforting to know the kids could run all around and there were no busy streets or hazards like a swimming pool. There is no place for bigger kids to ride bikes or skooters since all the driving surfaces are gravel - though small kids can ride trikes on the sidewalk. The wifi doesn’t always work; comes and goes. Adults enjoyed walking over to golf & to fish on the grounds. We also had a lot of fun sitting on the wooden benches around bonfires in a giant wire basket. We paid Dave, the owner, to take all of us on a hay ride. It was fun & he let the kids take turns helping him drive the tractor. They loved that. Our group also enjoyed going to the pioneer village at Spring Mill State Park, Holiday World Amusement & Water Park, deluxe golfing at Sultan’s Run, the French Lick casino, and swimming at a beach at Patoka Lake. We were lucky the big Stassenfest Festival was going on in Jasper when we were there. There were more things in the area that we wanted to do but ran out of time so will have to wait for our return to Elk Ridge Ranch."

"This cottage is nestled in a quiet neighborhood, 2 blocks from a beautiful sandy beach. Most days the sky was clear enough to see the Chicago skyline. We took the train from the Miller station into Chicago to see the sights. The house was clean and well stocked with everything we needed for a great stay, including awesome beach chairs! There was even a ball for our kids to play four square on the perfectly shaped concrete patio outside. Miller Beach is a well kept secret. The manager of the rental was friendly and helpful. We met many friendly people and enjoyed our stay. Highly recommend!!!"
