Always Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

My group of friends and I have rented these houses for mother/daughter weekends for years. We keep coming back because the houses are wonderful, the beds are comfortable, and the products and extras in the houses are high end. The amenities are also perfect. We have used the grills, made fires in the fire pit for s'mores, eaten eggs and veggies from the garden or just sat outside and stared at the view. Whatever your plans are, these houses just make them better!

From the wonderful outdoor spaces to the super nice beds and sheets, The Roadhouse and Hideaway are fun and truly comfortable. Ron and.Michael go above and beyond to keep the adults equipped with whatever we need and the kids entertained. Another great vacation!

Great get away for families or girlfriends.

  • 5 of 5

Every detail was covered! This was one of the best vrbo' s I've ever rented. The home (s), the grounds, the animals, the vie, the fresh eggs, etc were wonderful. Not a bad drive to First Mondays in Canton either. The owners were accessible throughout our stay. I'd definitely return with a group sharing the costs.

Awesome Vacation Houses And Owners

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Roadhouse Property along with 2 other couples with their 5 young children from 7/14/16 to 7/17/16. AWESOME

We found where we will be vacationing every year from now on.

Michael and Ron are AWESOME OWNERS. They made our experience wonderful. They go above and beyond for us. Fresh Farm eggs every morning to treats they bring us in the morning to the smores making things everyday . It is a Peaceful and Relaxing place to be.

This was our 2nd year returning to their properties and The Hospitality we received just insured that this will be our vacation yearly. Properties are clean and have their own lake and boat dock access which is great. You would think with properties being so close it would be loud and not relaxing. Here to let you know you don't even know people are around you it is so peaceful and relaxing. If you need or have any questions you can call them and they are jonny on the spot.(DONE). Michael went out of his way to make sure the children had fruit to feed the animals and let them milk the goats. They had a blast something they talked about everyday. I can not say enough about this place and the owners. If you are looking for a vacation home to rent and have a relaxing time this is the place to be. You will be back time after time like us. Can not say enough about them or this place. Hope you have a great time as we did. Thank you Michael and Ron.

Rental not a fair description, We were guests

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we were welcomed at the Elijah Roadhouse by Michael peddling up on his bike, to Eric, who assists in tending the property, we recognized this location was more than a rental. The house was prepped and primed for our Friday afternoon arrival, the scent of fresh lavender helped to dissipate the stress of the prior week, the music being played throughout the home, it was terrific. The Cove location was just as described on VRBO, from well appointed furnishings, to the stocked nature of the house, detergents in the kitchen and laundry, to the many items one is accustomed to having in their own home. [it is frustrating to me when I check into a VRBO rental and there is not a bar of soap to be found, or a roll of paper towels....the simply things!] This was not the case when renting the Elijah Roadhouse and Hideaway. From shampoo, to toilet paper, games, books and amenities - like plenty of towels! [beach and bath.] The lawn was generous and expansive, green and red ant free, making it a wonderful location for the grandchildren to be safe - no bug bites, and due to the size of the property, a toddler wandering into the water was never a concern. The outdoor spaces were as beautiful and calming as the interior. Not to be overlooked was the joy and fun in feeding the chickens every day, and milking the goats. Ron and Michael NEVER made our party of 10 feel like we were renting, we were guests in their home and they worked tirelessly to insure all was good, and that our needs were met. This was really spectacular and we look forward to returning. The only tricky part we found was that the lovely furniture in the bedrooms were oversized, making room for a portacrib in the downstairs bedrooms made room space tight, but it was an easily solved situation by using space upstairs in loft. The rails on the steps and loft banister are not spaced for toddler safety, but this is not a drawback to the house, only an fyi to families traveling with little ones. We look forward to renting again. Ron and Mike were amazing, Eric so gentle and kind, and the property, as I mentioned, was homey and personal, not your typical rental at all. Not to be overlooked - kayaks and pfd's are on site, providing free lake activites!

About Ron

Country boys a heart but with a passion for good living, we found Cedar Creek Lake to be a near perfect solution to help us balance our busy lives in the city with our strong desire for nature, animals and wildlife. We love being near the water, and enjoy boating, swimming and of course, relaxing away from the city. We are so happy to share the 'paradise' we found with our guests!

Ron purchased this chateau / country house in 2004

Why Ron chose Mabank

We searched the lake for over a year to find the perfect location for our own vacation home. The top priorities for us were privacy and a sense of seclusion.....we simply did not want to look out and see 10 boathouses or stare at a bank of homes and neighbors across a cove. We also wanted a firm, sandy swimming area, protection from the heavy boat traffic and choppiness of wide open water, but we wanted a open water view. As nature lovers, we also wanted to be nestled in a wooded setting for shade, wildlife and natural beauty.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

We made the decision to focus on providing our guests with a little something extra when staying with us.....from high quality linens (freshly pressed!), to farm fresh eggs from our own laying hens, we work to 'surprise and delight' each guest on each visit. Whether it's a new furnishing, art or antique, we strive to keep our homes crisp and updated with constant imrovements. Repeat visitors and referrals from previous guests are the mainstay of our business. We're told our homes 'feel like home'....and are just as 'fresh and clean as the first visit'....this tells us we are doing something right!
