"Our families (11 of us) get together for a week every summer. We need lots of room and this house did not disappoint, there are 5 bedrooms with large beds and plenty of bathroom space, no one ever waited for a bathroom. The most perfect shaded deck for relaxing and plenty of room for yard games in the shade or out. Very short walk to the boat deck where there were benches to sit but also a little room for your lake chairs. The house has a boat ramp, it took a little maneuvering because 1) the house is gated, which was a plus, we always felt safe but 2) we have a big truck and a Bayliner Discovery, although, I'm here to tell you it is possible and didn't really take the guys that long to do.
The kitchen was large and there were lots of places for the whole family to sit down to eat and...at the same time and not half at a bar seat. Two refrigerators made it simple, one for food, one for drinks, those of you with lots of young adults will appreciate that. We brought some games, but there were some available at the house for them to play as well. Lots of books to read if you forget one as well as a few DVD's, but we always bring our own. I would say the only downside was it probably could've been better with a little bit more living room furniture, but there was plenty of seats at game, dining, and bar tables.
There were lots of stocked items for use, so we really didn't have to bring from home, we usually do a beach house and have to bring everything, so we over-packed. There were plenty of dishes and cups, the bottom cabinets were a little disorganized but we were able to find the things we needed after the first day getting familiar. We are used to beach rentals and some have lots and some don't, so if we need something for a special dinner we usually bring things like crock pots and pizza pans, but this house did have a great pizza pan. The laundry was easily accessed and the detergent was supplied, big plus!
The house & directions were easy access and it sits just inside the cove, close to open water. Son was able to use his kayak very easily in the cove, and they all caught a few fish. We always ferried out in the boat to the main lake area for swimming. There is a game park in Seven Points just about 10 minutes down the road, they enjoyed that for a few hours, but mostly, the lake was where we spent our days and playing games and watching movies on the large screen TV at night.
The owner is very responsive, friendly, and accommodating."
