  • Very relaxing weekend getaway for our anniversary

    "You can tell Paula and Jim have went out of their way to make this "treehouse" a cozy place for couples to getaway. The place was very clean, updated, and just all around nice! We loved being able to hop in a boat and paddle out to fish, or just fish off the pier. We caught quite a few bass. You can buy farm fresh eggs from Paula and Jim and they are amazing, they also have biscuits in the freezer and homemade jam/jelly in the fridge that is complimentary. Seriously, the biscuits and jam were to die for :) free tours of the property are offered, just call and schedule a time. we did not get to take a tour of the property because we only stayed 2 nights and got their really late. For sure will have to do that next time. I LOVED all the ivy growing around the trees and the complete ground cover under "treehouse". It's just a beautiful place and Paula is the sweetest person to work with. Stay here, you won't regret it. We will be back!"

  • Great Lake Get-away!!!

    "This was truly a great vacation for our group which included 2 families with kids and grandparents. The house comfortably accomodated a group our size and the house is large enough with separate rooms that you don't feel on top of eachother. The location could not have been better. We fished off the doc , rented a boat and went tubing, and even visited a winery in the area. We've already talked about coming back next year and hope to secure this property again. It was perfect! Additionally, the owner was easy to work with before and during our stay."

  • 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!!!"
