Perfect place for quality family time!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous time! The home had everything we needed. The bedrooms and bathrooms were spacious. The livingroom/kitchen area was a great place to gather. The fishing off the dock was great, no keepers, but lots of bites! We had a great stay!

Peaceful and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We completely enjoyed our stay at the Riley Lake House. The beds were very comfortable and supportive. The house was stocked well with everything needed. My parents traveled with us, they used the main level bedroom, the walk in shower was perfect for them. My brother lives in the area, short drive away, and another brother rented a nearby VRBO. So we were all in close proximity for the long weekend. The owner was very easy to communicate with. We made a great decision to stay here.

Home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

Love this place! Our very own home away from home. The property is well maintained and makes it easy to entertain outdoors all day long. The best part is, you feel like you have the lake all to yourself! Whether you're looking to get out and and explore or if you're looking to shut down for the weekend, this is the place to go. The house had everything we needed and then some, including ping pong tables, board games and a pinball machine. I was amazed at how well kept the home is, even my picky spouse was impressed by the spotless conditions. We can't wait to come back, thank you!!

What a GREAT getaway !

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Riley Lake house. All that we needed was provided, linens, kitchen items, etc. Our children loved playing in the water, jumping off of the floating dock, fishing off of the main dock , playing ping pong, tetherball and roasting marshmallows on the fire .

We would recommend the house to anyone and hope to come back! Thanks for letting us enjoy your home.
