Love Love this place ! !

  • 5 of 5

We have made such great memories at this lake house - so fun! This visit was a relaxing and fun girls trip with best friends and sister in laws. It is perfect for the lazy days of relaxing at the lakefront on the dock, with coffee and a good book in the morning and a glass of vino at night with the gals.. The accommodations ooze luxury bedding with attention to detail in every room of the this house, plus I slept like a baby ! There are a couple of nice restaurants near by that were very good and not too far to a great winery. And yes the outdoor shower is glorious ! The owners were lovely.. We will be back in the fall to sit in front of a nice roaring fire going in that great living room. We have already booked a few more days!

EXCELLENT!!! It doesn't get better

  • 5 of 5

This is our second summer at this lake house. The house is spacious and super clean. The mattresses were very comfortable and everything in the house is top notch. New clean towels and sheets, fully equipped kitchen, outdoor shower, BBQ.

The lake is relaxing for adults and fun for kids.

The owners were warm and accommodating and thought of everything. I highly recommend spending family time in this charming lake house in a beautiful neighborhood.

Oasis on Big Fresh Pond!

  • 5 of 5

My girls-only visit was the absolute best. The tranquility and beyond breathtaking view at the lake was a recipe for perfection. The house always feels like a home away from home, but better, with its fully appointed kitchen, beautifully decorated furnishings and cathedral living room. Nothing better than sharing a glass of wine, sitting on the huge deck, listening to the birds, the clean, sweet smell of the fresh air, reminiscing with your gal pal, oh, except for the outdoor shower, my personal fav. Can't wait for the next time!

Beautiful Lake Home!

  • 5 of 5

Our group had the best time staying at this house over the Fourth of July weekend! The pictures do not do the house justice, it is quite large, airy, and immaculately clean! The neighborhood and lake are a peaceful, tranquil setting, and we had the best time grilling, playing frisbee in the backyard, and lounging on the floating dock! The kitchen is also fully stocked and there were plenty of beach chairs for when we went to Road D beach which is free and a short drive away. Laura is a pleasure to work with and made our stay seamless. I highly recommend this house, we hope to come back next year!

Perfect weekend getaway!!!

  • 5 of 5

This lovely house was just perfect for a long weekend for two families with kids. Everyone enjoyed their stay and we made use of the lake across the house. My husband went fishing every morning and even caught a couple big fishes for dinner. The kids loved watching the two dads fishing, while walking and playing in the shallow water at the lake shore. The bedrooms were beautifully decorated with a nice living room to lounge in. The patio as well as the dining room were perfect for our dinner time and with a kitchen that was well equipped. We would definitely come back to this place, if we weren't to move back to Europe! The location was great too, as the beach wasn't far either and we were very surprised how warm and clear the water was. I can only recommend this place for everyone who wants some time to relax.

Great Rental!

  • 5 of 5

This house was just perfect! There is a beautiful lake across the house with a rowing boat and also a floating deck. Great for swimming. The house is beautiful and very clean. There was an endless amount of kitchen supplies and bathroom supplies, as well as bath towels and beach towels. The town is about 10 minutes away and Cooper's Beach was about a 20 minute drive away.

We had a great time and can't wait to make this an annual trip. Thanks for everything, Laura!
