Guestbook Comment

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect. The weather was not. Though, I can think of no better place to be trapped indoors on a cold, rainy day. The Richards have truly thought of everything. The thoughtfully appointed, comfortable bedrooms were a great place to crash after a day of exploring the area's offerings (which are too many to describe here). There was even a built-in stereo system that got along well with my iPod! If you're lucky enough to find Margie's Resort vacant, don't hesitate! It's even better than their Website describes.

Lovely home , close to the lake. Everything we needed was there. Near many places we wanted to visit

  • 5 of 5

This home was fully furnished and had everything we needed. While the weather wasn't great, we enjoyed games and puzzles the owners provided. The kitchen was well supplied for all types of cooking. There we ten of us, but we never felt crowded. Yard was well maintained and used the fire pit several evenings. Plenty of chairs to use outside. Close to the lake. Looking forward to coming again.
