"We could not be happier with our weekend. The place has everything you need. Very clean. We loved the shower and the view from the hot tub. Great place for couples wanting to get away from reality. The place has so many amenities that are not even listed in the description! The bed, is in fact, one of the best of those features. Very comfortable. We plan on returning next year for our next anniversary! Owners are great. Made it feel very special. They provided a bottle of wine and flowers per my request. My wife was very happy!"Guest: Joshua Dz Date of Stay: September 2014 Review Submitted: September 14, 2014View listing
"This is our 4th year at this location. We could not be happier! The house is always clean and the caboose now has a half bath for the snorers?? The beach is great. We go for a "girls getaway". But this would be good for a family get together also. Can't say enough good things about the place, we will be back next years as always!!"Guest: Zahni Date of Stay: August 2014 Review Submitted: August 26, 2014View listing
"I just got back from the best vacation ever with my children and grandchildren. It was so much more than I expected. Truly a G-d send. Everybody had a marvelous time at the lake. Accommodations were wonderful. Enough room for my grandchildren and there were plenty of them. --- it was so wonderful watching everyone enjoying the lake, nature, sunsets. . . . Karen was an amazing hostess. . . there was everything you could want. . sand toys. . books. toys, even a golf-cart. . . My married children had a wonderful time spending time together, like the old days. . . I live out of the country, and I planned this vacation in April, ---- the kids were a bit skeptical, but now they are already talking about returning next summer. See you Karen---"Guest: viva Date of Stay: August 2014 Review Submitted: August 22, 2014View listing
"I rented this home to house a group of performers that were flying in from Japan for a concert celebration with our performance troupe. They loved the space, comfort and quiet that was available. The younger performers loved the multitude of features available in the basement to help relax, and everyone enjoyed being able to eat and share time together in the common areas. Will definitely rent again if we have the need!"Guest: Cyndi Date of Stay: October 2014 Review Submitted: November 9, 2014View listing
