"This home is gorgeous, spacious and has stunning views. We rented this house for our daughters wedding (approx. 70 ppl) We had planned on having the ceremony on the beach and the reception on the bluff. However, Mother Nature had other plans and decided to make it rain just before the ceremony :( Time to improvise! We decided to have the ceremony inside, standing room only. We moved all the furniture to the perimeter of the room and everyone gathered around to watch her come down the spectacular staircase to stand in front of the fireplace. After the ceremony, the round tables and chairs were brought into the living room and entry area, table cloths went on and centerpieces in place. Chef Shell's grilled on site and dinner was set up in the basement. One by one we sent tables down to get dinner. After dinner we broke down the tables and left the chairs around the perimeter of the room and had the dance floor in the living room. The dj set up between the dining and living room opening. We had lots of room! A great time was had by all! Everyone complimented us on the beauty of the home, grounds and lake. The bride and groom's family were all able to take advantage of spending the night in the spacious rooms. The only "glitch" (besides the rain) was I didn't realize we had to ask for "linens at an extra charge" I missed that in the description. Wasn't a huge issue but linens (for the price of renting) should be included. My only regret was not having enough time to enjoy the lake we love so much! Peter, the owner, was so nice and very accommodating. Normally only renting for the week, he made an exception and let us rent for 2 days since it was the middle of the week on a week that wasn't already booked. So very thankful!! I would highly recommend this home to anyone looking to have a gorgeous wedding!"

Relaxing lake house with all the conveniences of home
"We (4 couples and 4 children under 5yo) stayed at this lake house for a week and had plenty of room for family style dinners, outdoor games, places to tie off 2 boats, and still had private areas for quite time and catching rays etc. The house is completely up to date in amenities and style. The only thing we found hindering us in the kitchen was the lack of a mixer of any sort so I'd recommend bringing a hand mixer if a whisk won't cut it. Both a Keurig and standard coffee maker are available which was great for a group of differing tastes and wake up times.
The Sanford Lake Park is a must-do! Gorgeous maintained beach, charcoal grills, volleyball courts, huge splash pad/park for the kids, accessible by a 30 min boat ride or a 10 minute drive ($10 entry to park vehicles). We went there twice and everyone loved it!
We had a couple rainy/cooler days and still didn't go stir crazy because there are so many areas of the house to occupy and the covered patio of the walk-out basement was great for letting the kids run off some energy and stay reasonably dry.
The lot itself is beautiful and secluded, you can't hardly see the neighbors on either side. It was so peaceful sitting on the porch to enjoy coffee or a book, etc.
Thanks Kip and Nicole for sharing your retreat with us!"

"Super clean, lots of little extra's we appreciated:) S'mores supplies, popcorn and coffee. Just wish the beds would have been made up when we arrived. Would definitely recommend this cottage to friends!"

"We loved this cottage in Lexington. It is right downtown but on a beautful lot. The house has beautiful wood floors, a very nice kitchen and 2 bathrooms. The only thing missing is a bathroom on the second floor."
