5 Star Experience

  • 5 of 5

Our family greatly enjoyed this relaxing lake house with beautiful views. Taking a break from our phones and television gave us a chance to reconnect. There are bbq grills, plenty of cookware, towels, and water toys for the pond. Thanks, Howard!

Perfect Weekend Getaway for Groups

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I had a fantastic time celebrating New Years Eve in this home. It is ideally equipped for larger groups, with a big and functional kitchen, lots of sleeping spots, and a great living room with amazing views of the lake. We were all talking about how we would love to come back over the summer, but being there in the winter was really picturesque as well!

A M A Z I N G !

  • 5 of 5

The lake house was just perfect for our party. Provided gorgeous views on a rainy August day and was super fun on the next day which was warm and sunny. The kids spent hours in the lake, while the adults could rest and enjoy the peacefulness of nature.

I have to admit that I'd read the reviews above and it made me hesitate about this place. I'm so glad I took this leap of faith and believed the owner that it was merely one mean family, probably people who always look at the empty half of the glass.

Maybe people should come with the right expectations... If you're looking for a sterile environment and super fancy house, this place is not for you. It is a house in the woods. Next to a water source. House is not necessarily new. For us it was just perfect - cozy, family atmosphere, kitchen was perfectly equipped (wish I knew! I would have brought more complicated food to cook;), we loved the many seating areas that kids kept exploring: breakfast in the house, grill lunch in the outdoor dining area, evening Smores on the hammock next to the bonfire... wonderful memories had been created. Looking forward to coming back next Summer!

Great amenities / clean / convenient

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time at Howard's house on the lake, had a group of 10 and everyone slept comfortably, so many outdoor activities as well as nearby, would highly recommend.
