Beautiful location, impeccably maintained, every convenience of home, gorgeous views!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our 4 day Easter weekend! The home was clean and had all the conveniences of home. We were able to enjoy the lake and rented a boat Sat and still managed to cook a huge Easter dinner Sunday. Rita was helpful and responsive. Having two kids in Charlotte and two in Buffalo it’s hard to get us all together these days. We will definitely be back!
