  • Family Vacation

    "The accommodations and the surroundings were great. All was accurately described. The biggest draw back was getting us all there without getting lost and having no communication with the ones that were having problems. Once we were all there the reception problem didn't matter."

  • Tranquil with beautiful lake view and sunsets.

    "The property has been updated by the current owners with a great deal of care. It is a soothing place to stay, especially the owners bedroom retreat and bath which looks out to the lake, with double living areas so all can have their own space. Perfect for elderly as it is all on one level with easy drive up and unloading. A great place to stop and unwind, especially if you like to fish, or kayak, or boat, or all. You can arrive with your toothbrush and a change or two of clothes, a cooler of food, and and be pretty much set for the weekend, The picture of the covered boat dock where we fished all weekend pretty much captures it all. Thanks,."

  • Upscale Again!

    "We have stayed at this condo before many times and everytime the experience is unique and exciting. The location and condo is top class and high end. The owners are easy to work with and often accomodate special requests. Furniture and kitchen top notch and upscale! Everything clean and nice! Even though the pool was closed, we were authorized to use another very close. Too bad the weather didn't cooperate and lots of flying bugs outside this time of year! they weren't a bother though. Oh well! Thanks for a fantastic week ......... again!"

  • ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL!!!

    "My family & I were in need of a vacation and we are so happy that we found Gary & Janet's 1bedroom condo!! My children & I fished EVERYDAY for 7 days either right from our balcony or when we went down to the pier. And when we weren't fishing, the atmosphere of the condo was so great that we slept most of the time that we were inside. The photos are good but when we got there, WOW!! Gary and Janet are some wonderful hosts and even brought us an iron and ironing board when we needed it. I recommend anyone to check into these condos. Just beware that we are coming back and you can't have our week!!!"
