Awesome time!!!!

  • 5 of 5

After our girls softball team made it to the regional playoff series in Pennsylvania, we needed a place to stay in a hurry. My wife contacted a bunch of people on Homeaway and Mary got back to her extremely fast. All the details were ironed out in 2 days and we got to Pa Friday night. Awesome house!!!! We had such a great time. In their down time, the girls played pool, went in the hot tub and fed deer in the front yard. We were fortunate enough to meet Joe and had great conversations with him. Thanks Mary and Joe for having us from Maine on such short notice. We are already making plans to try to get another of their properties for next year for one of the Nascar races. Thanks again, you made half of a softball team from Maine some really happy girls and parents.

We rented all three of Mary and Joe's homes for a family reunion in August 2006. The homes and location were perfect for us. Our large family (9 families in all) had plenty of space with all of the comforts of home. The large deck on one of the homes made for a great gathering place for group dinners. The children had a great time at the beach and kayaking on the lake. Mary and Joe were excellent to deal with through the whole planning stages of our reunion. They were attentive to our needs and very welcoming. We had such a nice time, that my cousins and siblings want to do it again next year. Thanks for everything!

Amazing and absolutely gorgeous.If you're looking for a nice getaway, this place is perfect. Rooms are spacious, balcony view is breathtaking, hot tub is soothing, sleeping accomodations are impeccable, and the house is just beautiful and well kept. In addition to the house, Sky Drive property is minutes from Split Rock Resort, which I must say is wonderful! Perfect way to spend the vacation. The jacuzzi there just makes you forget all your worries. If anyone is searching for houses, please consider this one. I loved it! and the owner is very nice. [ Love ya Mary and thanks for everything, I'll definitely try to come back next year to rent the property!]
