HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION! WONDERFUL HOME ON FABULOUS LAKE!
"We have stayed in this Deer Lake home for a number of years and have absolutely fallen in love with the place. I agree with the other reviewer who said it feels like their own home. With its mix of rooms and amenities, indoor and out, it works well for families with children, or groups of adults, individually or in couples. The main house includes four separate bedrooms with bath suites, three of which have newly remodeled baths. And the owners have just added a brand new guest house with two additional bed/bath suites, each with separate entrance. In the main house, there is a good- sized living room with timber framing, high ceiling and stone fireplace. But the heart of the house is the kitchen-dining room with its large bay of windows overlooking the lake. The kitchen has great appliances (two dishwashers!) and is well stocked with cookware and utensils and an array of new and antique tableware. (In fact, the entire house is filled with a collection of antiques that is a treat all on its own.) The kitchen/dining room is one of those comfortable big rooms where you can prepare and serve a meal that feels right for only two people or for a dozen or more (or for dancing while cooking; yes, we actually find ourselves doing this). Right outside the kitchen is a large deck with a big table and umbrella (again, suitable for 2 to 12 people) overlooking the lake. On the other side of the deck is a screen house that provides a great place for daytime lounging or evening activities sans mosquitoes. The house also has a yard, fire pit (with hose nearby), several other decks, and down on the lakefront a sauna, outdoor shower (it is fabulous: I think I have yet to take a shower inside the house) and long dock with a boat lift and THE LAKE. If the house is great, the lake is an absolute marvel. They call Deer Lake the “lake of changing colors.” That sounds like one of those cheesy 1950’s promotional slogans. But in this case it is actually true. Depending on wind and time of day, the surface of the lake does actually alternate between shades of bright blue and luminous turquoise. The water is cool and crystal clear, the bottom sandy; there are bays and islands with deep woods and eagles nests; you can see fish go by below you as you swim. I could go on and on. Bottom line: This is a fabulous home from which to enjoy a fabulous lake."

"We have visited HHI for several years now, with and without children, and have stayed all over the island, but I must say that the Ocean Palms was by far the nicest location. From the quick response of the owners who were warm and friendly and willing to accommodate us in our special request to the wonderful villa that was equipped with everything.
The Westin Resort and Spa was a great bonus as well as the free golf and tennis. We will definitely be back to this property! Thank you K & R!"

"Great place for kids, teens, young adults, and anyone looking for a cool place to stay for a short getaway! The pool isn't heated, which others mentioned, but we didn't have a problem jumping in anyway."

"This property was in an excellent location for restaurants, boating, swimming and beach
activities. The home was well equipped with linens, kitchen appliances, dishes and cookware. Very clean and well kept. Grandchildren enjoyed pool and beach daily.
Would not hesitate to recommend this to anyone. Hope to be back in October!"
