  • 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!!!"

  • Perfect Getaway

    "We rented this home for a 4 day, 3 night getaway for my wife's birthday. Upon arriving, Jimmy greeted us and pretty much gave us the ins and outs of the place, the town, and the assurance that he was there in case we needed anything. The decorations in the house added to the ambiance of the very large lakefront property. Everything was in proper working order and we encountered nothing that ever gave us any problems during our stay. The family pictures in the living room area were a nice touch as well. The game room was sort of the teens dungeon. Dart board, pool table, foosball table, several bunkbeds, and full bath allowed them a sort of privacy of their own while not being but about 50' from the main house. A large portion of the yard (immediately in front of the house) had ample space for us to set up a volleyball net and still had plenty of space left over. The picnic area, which is located immediately in front of the game room, is almost fully shaded during the daytime hours and allowed us to be outside during the daytime hours without being beaten down on by the sun. The pier/boat dock was also one of the more populated areas during our stay. The water around the dock seems to be around 6'-8' in depth at the time of our stay, so provided for some excellent swimming. Overall, everyone complimented the place and truly enjoyed their time there. Can't wait to be back."

  • A Great Weekend

    "I spent a few days at the Lake House with my 3 sons, their wives, and 4 of my beautiful grandchildren. It was a great place for us. Plenty of room and a great location close to the boats we rented. The children enjoyed jumping off the docks. We spent a great deal of time on the beautiful patio and the children were well entertained with movies and games available in the house. The owner was wonderful to work with and even mailed back a swimsuit we forgot. Can't wait to go back."

  • Fantastic Family Reunion with the Perfect Location!!!!!

    "Our family reunion was very enjoyable in this beautiful home on the lake. The house was very spacious and had everything we needed! The owners were very easy to work with and were very helpful during our planning. Perfect location: Nice quiet neighborhood with a private boat launch. In a cove so there isn't much boat traffic and the water is calmer. Fabulous Yard: It was very large. We had 6 very active teenagers who had plenty of room for basketball, volleyball, batting practice, football and frisbee. Boat dock: We had 2 jet skis for the weekend and the kids loved being able to take the jet skis in and out all day. It was very convenient to take them out for an hour and then come back for food and rest. We also enjoyed the sunsets from the upper deck. Back porch: Very relaxing! The adults enjoyed sitting on the porch talking, taking naps in the hammock and enjoying the hot tub. The house had everything: The kitchen was very well stocked! All of the rooms were very spacious and there was plenty of room for everyone. At night we all got together and watched movies in the largest media room I have ever seen. There were huge couches and everyone got a seat. This is a great house in a great location. We will definitly be back."
