"We rented this house for our family and closest friends for our daughter's wedding. It was terrific. The owner and caretaker accommodated our request for early check-in to allow us to get the rehearsal on time. The caretaker was very friendly, but not aggressive or intimidating, met us and gave us a thorough and efficient tour of the features of the house, then left us his cell number to contact him with any questions. Parking was a little intimidating at first (shared driveway and parking with a close neighbor who happened to be moving this weekend!), but we learned quickly that we could fit three vehicles in the garage, up to seven vehicles outside of the garage, and several more up the hill at the end of the driveway, without encroaching on the neighbor's parking. The photos don't show all the bedrooms and bathrooms, but all were top notch. Large bedrooms, high end bedding, quality furniture and mattresses, sufficient high quality towels for the entire group. All but two of the bedrooms could actually house a family in each. The master bedroom was luxurious with a beautiful bathroom - jetted tub, glassed in tile shower, and a gas fireplace that warmed up the room quickly. The kitchen was huge with never ending cabinetry, high end appliances, and well stocked with dishes, pots and pans, flatware and cooking utensils. There were appliances sufficient to keep up with us, i.e., two coffee makers, two ovens, etc. We had meals for large groups a couple of times and the kitchen and dining space was sufficient to hold many cooks and guests. The deck was great with big, professional type grill, several dining tables and lots of chairs, extending the two large dining tables indoors, and the best view of the lake. A paddle boat and two kayaks were also great for our twenty somethings. The dock is solid and guests visited in a rental boat, using our dock as a starting point for water skiing. The laundry room was especially welcome as a staging area for storing items we didn't want underfoot, but needed for the wedding. The wedding was on Finley Point and not at the house, but we had a lot of traffic. This house was perfect for us. Everything was top tier, high quality, yet comfortable and inviting. Many thanks to the owner and caretaker for great service. I would recommend this house to anyone without hesitation and wish we could stay again for a longer period of time."
