"This home is located very close to the lake with large windows to showcase the gorgeous view. We particularly enjoyed having two living areas to spread ourselves out and yet enough separate bedrooms to enjoy privacy as well. The kitchen was well-stocked with all the basics, including a crockpot; everything was in good working order. The firepit was a big hit--and so convenient to have firewood at the ready (you just need to add money to a jar). We had a relaxing and wonderful time!"

"Last weekend, we had our annual family get together at The Great Escape. We all had such a fantastic time that we are already talking about planning next year’s gathering there, too. Pete was excellent to work with throughout the planning process and prompt in responding to questions. There are so many wonderful things about The Great Escape. The name describes it perfectly. It lets you take a break from the hustle and bustle of everyday work and stress to relax. We were lucky to have perfect weather for morning jogs, relaxing on the deck, and taking the peddle boat out on the lake. The view is panoramic and spectacular. We enjoyed morning coffee to a spectacular sunrise and wine in the evening to an equally, beautiful sunset. The inside of this magnificent home has a dream kitchen, plenty of chairs around a huge table for family meals, and a gathering room for relaxing. When it was time to sleep, everyone had a comfortable bed. If you and your family are planning a gathering for a crowd, this is the place to be. We are looking forward to our next gathering and it is highly likely it will be at The Great Escape."

"This home was a great fit for us. It is very well maintained, has TONS of room, is close to the lake and was in a peaceful area. Between the bunk beds upstairs, the ones in the basement, the three larger beds (queens I believe) plus all the other space like couches and floor space for air mattresses, this is a great place for a family or two to meet and enjoy the lake. The home was clean. The kitchen is updated and has everything you could need. There are movies and books to peruse. There's a poker table, foosball, ping pong, horse shoes, etc. There are actually two docks on the lake available to you. One is a short walk through a wide path. The other is a longer walk through the woods but is more private. Both docks are fit to tie up a boat or jet ski. The owners were easy to communicate with and we received our deposit back within 2 days. My only one negative would be the pillows. They were a little worn out. We did not opt for the linen service and brought our own sheets, towels and such. We also brought our own pillows so that didn't bother us at all. There were plenty of blankets which was great because the temperatures dipped while we were there. We will definitely return to this home again in the future."

"We just got back yesterday from a 4 day Memorial Day weekend! The home was perfect and we had an absolute blast. Plenty of sleeping room, comfy living area, tons of games (although we had beautiful weather all weekend so we didn't use them much), and the kitchen had lots of space and everything we needed. We brought two dogs who had plenty of space to run around outside. The dock was a nice size and perfect for our two jet skis. The cove was large enough, but quiet enough to paddle board. Kay was also great to work with...very responsive and was able to accommodate an early check in and late check out for us! (Thanks Kay!) And Norm, the neighbor, was a hoot! Loved chatting with him. We really enjoyed our short, but much needed vacation! We will definitely consider staying there again."
