"Shady Grove was the destination for our family reunion with 15 adults and teenagers. We were looking for a place that had accessibility for my elderly father yet offered enough activities to keep 8 20-somethings active and happy for a week. This was the right spot for everyone; the frisbee golf, volleyball, badminton and bocci (?) ball kept us busy and the yard from the house to the boat dock was a gentle slope that my father and his wife could easily and safely negotiate. The 5 bathrooms and 5 bedrooms were sufficient to give everyone adequate space. The bunkroom with 6 bunks did get pretty warm at night, however. Our favorite area was the outdoor patio with the bar, frig, grill, ice machine, chairs, large fan, stereo system, and big screen TV. Although initially we could not get the TV to function properly, management did make it out to fix it so the remote would work. The kitchen was furnished with everything imagineable and the 2 washers and dryers were helpful. Our favorite activity was being at the boat dock and swimming, kayaking, boating, floating, paddleboating, and visiting. There was room for the 22-foot fishing boat my sister's family brought as well as a smaller fishing boat we also brought with us. I appreciated that the house was on a small "channel" of sorts so that I could swim laps the width of it each day without the fear of large boats in the busy areas. All in all, I think we would return to this property; the cost, which was at the higher end of the budget for us, was made up for by the amenities that appealed to a diverse crowd."

"The house was very spacious and suited the needs for our group. The air conditioner wasn't working on one side of the house. The boatlift didn't work so we had to use another one. They did come and look at it and allowed us to use another one. The bathtubs were very awkward and were very hard to get into and I wouldn't recommend this house for elderly people or small children. All in all, it was a nice place though. It was clean and well kept. The yard was very nice and had great views."

"We rented both houses from Bill to accommodate 17 people and a dog. We had a maximum of 24 people there one day. I was the only one who had seen the property before then but nobody was disappointed. The house are appointed with everything you could imagine needing. It was like Bill's family was living there just before us. We rented boats that were delivered and picked up at our dock. We played golf in Kingland. The kids played croquet on the lawn and watched movies. We had bonfires in a fire pit we brought. It was an experience that our whole family will remember for years."
