Guestbook comments from the owner

Your home was welcoming! Thank you! The perfect place for my Dutch Family to be with my American Family. Thank you for the personal touch. We enjoyed your home and clean accommodations. Having washer/dryer was helpful. Your outdoor seating is great, too.

Lakeside Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

The owner was a pleasure to work with, and responded to every little questions so fast. This house was perfect for a guys weekend! Between the 5 bedrooms and the pull out couch, there was more than enough room for everyone to sprawl out. We actually made use of the Wii, along with the speaker system that ran throughout the house. The basement was by far our favorite part, from the shuffle board, to the Foosball table, to the Tron arcade game, and the dart board, we could have stayed down there the entire time.

The guys used the kayaks all weekend long, and the grill was nice to use so we didn't have to do too many dishes. Late nights around the fire pit were a perfect way to end the day. This is the best value that you will find for a house with this many amenities. Do yourself a favor and end your search here. We are nothing short of in love and eager to return!!!

Perfect for Large Families or Groups!

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent a week at Hayes Hideaway in August and had a spectacular time! It was everything we had hoped for; Spacious living quarters, plenty of seating at the dining table, outdoor table for playing cards, fishing, swimming, campfires, boating, an afternoon snooze in the hammocks while a soft breeze blows and the sound of the waves on the shore, sunning, outdoor stereo, taking in the gorgeous view, movies, air conditioning for when you needed to get out of the heat, washer, dryer, towels, baby gates, gameroom, 2 refrigerators and grills, safe for toddlers, picnic table, plenty of kitchen bowls, plates etc and so much more! My husband and I reserved the cottage back in January for a week in August after losing our 18 year old granddaughter in a car accident. On July 31st, my husband suddenly passed. Our grown children and grandchildren insisted on still going and I am so glad they did. It was beautiful, peaceful, close to stores and just want we all needed. Shaun is an excellent host and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Hayes Hideaway! Thank you!

Our overall stay was exceptional.

  • 5 of 5

We opened the door to a very clean and enviting home. A plate full of cookies, beautiful flowers were a graceing the large dining table and a large bottle of wine just waiting to be enjoyed. We enjoyed every minute, thank you Shawn for sharing your home on the lake.

Wonderful Spot

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved staying at Hayes Hideaway. It was the perfect spot for our family anniversary weekend. Being so close to the water allowed us to fish and kayak easily. The downstairs game room was fun for the kids (and adults). And we had a wonderful marshmallow roast around the fire pit one evening. I would definitely recommend this location.

Perfect setting for our family gathering!

  • 4 of 5

The home was clean and well cared for. The personal touches of cookies, fruit tray and fresh flowers was a welcome surprise. Although the bedrooms were small, they met our needs and the individual room air conditioners were great! Having a second refrigerator allowed for lots of space for food and beverages.

Our long weekend gathering also came with beautiful weather on Saturday which was unexpected, especially with all the rain that the area has been receiving. We had a drizzle of rain for part of Sunday, but it gave us an incentive to play some of the games provided (several we played were brand new) and to utilize the variety of game tables etc. in the lower level.

We also made use of the kayaks, with 5 availabile, it allowed a group to go out at once, versus only 1 or 2 at a time.

The outside area was just as well appointed as the inside with a fire pit, multiple seating areas, grills and tables.

Suggestions: have a booklet available with information and instructions for the house, i.e. the stereo system. * expectations for leaving, i.e. strip beds, place all towels in a specific place. * location of grocery stores, where to get wood, etc. * things to do in the area, i.e. the cider mill and winery.

All of our group managed the stairs, but for anyone with knee or hip issues they may find the stairs difficult to climb. Often when going from the main level to the ground level, we'd use the outside stairs, they weren't as high or steep.

We'll keep it in mind for future gatherings.

An excellent place to create memories!

  • 5 of 5

We decided that part of our kid's Christmas gift would be a mini vacation to create memories. We had an excellent time! Shaun and Zulma were great and made us feel at home. We were a little worried when we saw how close the other properties were to each other. Upon arriving we were thrilled by the large lot that the house sits on along with the generous amount of lake frontage. The house layout invites an atmosphere for family gatherings and fun while also providing places to "hide" for downtime. We truly enjoyed our stay.
