Great House, Great location, Great Lake
"Alford's Getaway was everything we wanted for a great week at the lake. We had visited SML last spring and stayed at a fine house on the lake but everything took a long time to get to. Alford's is close to everything you need by either car or boat. Highly recommend renting a boat from one of the nearby marinas and using the available dock (this is not a must though as swimming, kayaking or lounging is great right off the dock). The house, as mentioned in other reviews is immaculate and nicely decorated inside and out. The owners are great to deal with and very accommodating. On the 2nd day I messaged Betty that the grill was not getting hot enough - looking for a trick or some adjustment to make. We were amazed when the Alfords showed up in a few hours with a BRAND NEW 5 burner grill!!!! I couldn't recommend Alford's Getaway any higher. We had 2 sets of teenagers in our group and everyone had a great time.....the only problem was having to leave at week's end."

"Wonderful location suitable for every member of our extended family. Beautiful, clean and well maintained home on a superb lake. Stunning views from every room. All you could hope for. Easy access by road and water. Deer at every turn, an otter was spotted around the dock, and the fish were plentiful. Bass, bluegill and Stripers were caught by us, or others within a 4 oz sinker's cast of our dock. After years of searching, we finally found the ideal location. Hope to come back!"

"My family has been coming down to the lake for vacation for the past 8 years and have stayed in a different house every year. We all voted this as the best house we've stayed in. For starters, it was the cleanest by far. The layout is awesome...with 4 bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms, plenty of privacy. The downstairs is terrific...pool table a big hit with the kids and adults:-) Deck is the best I've experienced...awesome views and a screened in porch option.
Our favorite aspect was the dock, which was phenomenal. Kids LOVED the party deck and ability to jump into the deep cove. Felt very safe as the dock sits in a quiet cove...not a lot of boat traffic to worry about. Owners were terrific to work with. I appreciated that they checked in by phone the day we arrived to ensure everything was as expected. Location of the house is perfect...we prefer staying in this area (calmer water, less boat traffic)...but still close enough to marinas. Plus, the ice cream boat that comes by daily at 11 am...a fan favorite for the kiddies! Kids love Bridgewater marina...arcade, mini-golf, Moosies restaurant, etc. (close by boat or drive).
Only thing I'd point out is that there are quite a few steps to dock. For the able-bodied...a nice workout to justify eating the nachos at Moosies...for the elderly or disabled, it would be tough to get up and down.
A great week, everyone had a blast! We hope to be back next year if the owners will have us!"

"The house was beautiful and well stocked. We had lots of fun in the paddle boat and kyakes. Did lots of fishing and swimming off the dock. Brought our own boat and kept tied to the dock all week. That was very nice and easy. Load up on food and you never need to leave the house. The two down falls to the house are limited parking and the railing around the deck. I have a 14 month old and a 4 year old and could not relax on the deck because of fear that they would fall threw the railing. Peaceful, fun, relaxing!"
