Lovely house with everything a big group could need

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at "Neptune". Three couples took the three double bedrooms, a couple with two small kids stayed in the bunk room (one of the lower bunks is a double), and a single person stayed in the sleeping loft (not very private but he didn't care). We spent most of our time in the pool room or lounging in the lake on the lily pad raft. If we are ever back in Iowa we would stay here again.

Perfect getaway!

Annual vacation with all the kids and grandkids was wonderful in this beautiful home. Morning coffee on the deck overlooking the lake was really nice. We will be back!

Gorgeous, Peaceful, Rejuvenating

  • 5 of 5

Steve’s place is an amazing property situated on a perfect perch, overlooking Lake Panorama. The residence is a quality built, superbly furnished multi-level masterpiece, that can accommodate large groups, while affording guests with ample opportunities of peaceful solitude. We loved the whimsical art and the kitchen was overstocked with every appliance, kitchen gadget and place settings, that you will ever need.

We took advantage of the outdoor kitchen, fire pit, outdoor dining, multiple decks, lakeside loungers and the pontoon rental (extra but worth it). Lake Panorama itself, makes for a great excursion by water, with an abundance of sightseeing and interesting lakefront home styles. We saw many deer, turkeys and properties to die for. The Port restaurant has pretty good dining and a fun tiki bar, with live entertainment - located on the south end of the lake, adjacent to a fully-equipped marina.

Should you have golfers in your group, we can’t say enough good things about Lake Panorama National, a destination 18-hole gem. The course is a challenging and beautiful layout, that is maticulously maintained. There is also a 9-hole, Panorama West course, on the other side of the lake, but we did not play that one.

We all commented how Panorama seemed very much like the Ozarks. You definitely are transcended from Iowa, into an intoxicating feel-good, magical place. You will not be disappointed!

Perfect for a large family gathering - Mom's 90th

  • 5 of 5

We rented the Neptune and Hideaway for a gathering of 22 adults and 1 child for our Mother/Grandmother/Great-grandmother's 90th birthday. The older generations stayed at the Neptune and the grandkids (cousins and spouses) stayed at the Hideaway. The two homes were just right for the size of our group, although the Hideaway was a little tight with 11 people. The Neptune was perfect for gathering all of us for dinners and birthday celebrations. There were lots of different areas to converse and play, plenty of kitchen space, and a large living room where we could all congregate. We enjoyed hanging out on the deck, sunroom, and lakeshore/dock where we could fish. Steve gave us use of the pontoon boat for one day and we spent the whole day taking different groups down the lake. It was a perfect weekend, and most important of all, Mom and Dad loved it!
