Wonderful home - highly recommend

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we've stayed at Neptune and couldn't have been better. The first stay was 5 years ago and the home is still in great shape, very well kept. We had a girls weekend for 13 women and it's the perfect venue with 2 great gathering spaces, the kitchen is perfect for all cooking together, and plenty of sleeping rooms and bathrooms. There is a huge bar and a walk out to the covered patio. The property is so beautiful in the fall with the leaves changing. We enjoyed the fire pit and deck space as well. This house is so well equipped with everything we needed. The owner and prop managers are great, very responsive and helpful. I highly recommend this home for a multi-family gathering or for a bunch of friends to have a great stay together!!

We all loved Neptune!

  • 5 of 5

While I've stayed before, it was the first time for the rest of my group. Everyone loved the place and many are looking at renting it for their families to come enjoy.

We stayed in early September, and had lots of fun, and lots of sun. It was beautiful. I might need to do this annually.

Beautiful home, lovely lake, accommodating owner

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 10 plus two babies thoroughly enjoyed our time at 'Neptune'. The house fit our entire group very comfortably, with beds and bathrooms for all. We loved grilling each night in the outdoor cooking area and spending the days on the lake admiring the beautiful homes lining Panorama. Kitchen had almost anything any guest would need. Nice area for walking and close to one of Panorama's three beach areas. Would highly recommend this rental!

This house is beautiful and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

  • 4 of 5

We stay at the Neptune house in July. It is a beautiful house and was very clean. It has a very nice deck and outdoor cooking area that we used a lot. It worked very well for us since we had children there. There are more steps than I thought there would be from the house to the water so we did get our exercise! Overall we really enjoyed a peaceful stay at the Neptune!

It was perfect. Had everything we needed. Amazing house on a perfect Lake. The owners got a boat for us. My wife and I are both trial lawyers so we stayed at the property to make a trip to Des Moines for depositions a bit if a vacation w our newborn and our 20 month old. Everybody had a great time.
