Wonderful family vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

We have finally found the perfect vacation home. After renting lovely homes on for the last six years, this is the first home we're planning a return trip. We're booked for next year. The home is spacious and well laid out. The first floor has a beautiful kitchen, dining area and great room. The first floor bedroom was perfect for my parents. Upstairs, the other four bedrooms were perfect for two couples and plenty of kids. Outside the deck, fire pit and beach are all within a few feet of each other, making them perfect for everyone to do their own thing, while still interacting with the entire family. Lake Bellaire is beautiful. We brought our boat and spent hours waterskiing and tubing. (the water is very shallow, so some boats may have difficulty navigating to the dock.) And all the kids had a ball playing on the paddleboat, canoe and kayak. The home is clean and the property is wooded and very private. You can't see any neighboring homes. Just a couple days into our vacation this year, we emailed the owner and booked our vacation for next year. 2014 can't come soon enough! Thanks again, Melissa!

awesome home on the lake

  • 5 of 5

We have spent time at this lovely house in the summer and winter months. The house has everything our family needed, plus some. The owners are very conscientious and have left no detail undone. The lake is so enjoyable in the summer and we enjoyed ice skating on the glass smooth lake this past winter. The town of Bellaire is quaint and has much to offer for shopping, dining, coffee and the like. We highly recommend this vacation home.

p.s. my husband wants me to add that the fishing is good
