Perfect vacation home!

  • 4 of 5

We recently stayed at this property and it is now our "go-to" vacation home when we visit Marathon. The décor is beautiful and the home is in the perfect location. We were able to bring our dog which truly made it a family vacation. There was plenty of room for our boat and having use of the two kayaks was a nice plus. The kitchen had all the amenities one could ask for. It was also great to have a wine cooler to store our drinks so we had more room in the fridge for all our fish! We hope we are able to visit Marathon and this home again very soon!
