Oh what a view
We had so much fun. Lots to do for adults and kids. Comfortable, spacious home.
I could happily spend all day watching the view...
Close enough to perfect....
Saving the best detail for last (in my humble opinion), our large group of 12 was able to find comfortable places to sit, lay, stretch out and relax and still be around each other on the main floor of this beautiful home. We never felt like we were in each other's space. We opened the sliding pocket doors to the pool, sat outside and were able to talk to each other from the kitchen. The home-made Jenga game was a huge hit. We fished mostly from the shore, catch and release. On one windy day we went to the front of the house and shot pool and hung out in chairs in the sun while the house blocked the wind. When a 13 year old male (the only non-adult in the group) never once complains that he is bored -- well, that says alot.
Lastly, the view of the lake is amazing. No houses, no power lines, no roads, just lake and trees. The sunsets were perfection.
Top all of that with the MOST gracious host. Worth every penny.
Great area very available more than enough room for few families will defianlty go again for vacations
Great for a group
Nicest VRBO we've ever stayed at in the area and very convenient to Gainesville. Many thanks!
The house was perfect for our large group. Kitchen was awesome and open floor plan was conducive for entertaining. Kitchen very well stocked with everything you needed. Loved the separate sink and bar area. The kids and adults loved the pool and everyone had a great time. Would definitely go again. We enjoyed ourselves tremendously. Michael, the owner, was extremely nice and responded quickly to us if we had questions or needs. Thank you Michael for a great weekend and for allowing us to use your home to celebrate a very special person's 60th birthday!
Quiet and peaceful...
This lake house is on a small, quiet lake with only 8 or so houses all on the same side of the lake so the view is amazing. Lake Melrose is only for fishing and canoeing...no swimming. The gated entry was a nice feature. The house had fairly modern decor and was well appointed. Master bed/bath downstairs were large (the bidet was a nice surprise) with two other bedrooms upstairs and a reading loft with futon bed. Small bedroom in garage and cool little cottage bedroom off the pool. There was plenty of room for our huge family. The kitchen and living room are open with a wall of floor to ceiling windows/sliding glass doors the length of the house to take advantage of the view. The huge deck and pool were awesome and where we spent the majority of our time. Pool table in the garage kept us entertained otherwise. Mike, the owner, was great to deal with and answered my 1000 questions. Overall, it was an incredible get away and we hope to stay again soon!
