  • Fantastic Family Getaway

    "We had 7 adults and 4 children in our group stay 7/31-8/3. I cannot say enough wonderful things about this family lake house. This was a GREAT final summer family getaway for us and honestly, the first family trip that I did not want to come home from. Usually I'm loading up the car early the final morning of a trip and trying to round up kids, the wife etc. to get home, but not this time. We boated, we fished off the boat dock, we made the 20 minute trip to Canton flea market Saturday, cooked out on the deck of the small cabana out back..we did it all but mostly relaxed. The grandparents (mostly the mother in laws) LOVED sitting in the comfy easy chairs in the rear family room looking out the huge windows and watching the grand kids do whatever they were doing outside and the neighbors next door were great on advising where the best boat launch was. There was a ton of room and sleeping areas for all of us, with the kids flipping coins every night for the top bunk in the kids bunk bed room. The owners have gone out of their way to make you feel right at home in they're lake house and by the second day I actually felt as if we were a part of the family that had enjoyed the beauty and wonderful memories of this home for many years. Great scenery in the mornings and evenings for picture taking also as my wife discovered. We will definitely be back again. Thank you to your beautiful family for sharing your home with us. Curtis"

  • Great place and location

    "We spent three days at the house and it was very comfortable. Very spacious, more than enough room for seven adults and four children. With a two car garage and long drive way there is plenty of room for multiple vehicles. In addition, the backyard is plenty big for children to play. Our only con, in the walkway from the kitchen to the living room, where the carpet meets the wood flooring, there are sharp metal pieces that stick up. We folded a towel over and placed it over this and had only one minor issue."
