Perfect getaway to enjoy the sunsets on the lake each night. Would be perfect for snowbirds wanting to get away from the cold and snow in the north during the winter. Private lake where fishing is great. This is a wooded area and the house sits on 1.2 acres.

Canoe and paddles are onsite. There is also a jon boat with oars. You can also launch your own boat from the property.

Roast marshmallows over a camp fire and eat either on the dock or the picnic table.

Enjoy swimming, fishing, and canoeing on a beautiful, private, spring-fed lake.

Awesome Tranquility in the woods on the lake

  • 5 of 5

Had such a restful stay. The sunsets are as breathtaking as in the keys. Strong odor of gasoline in the garage where 2nd bedroom is located. Loved the pinball games and the tether ball brought back grade school memories. Really enjoyed playing ping pong. We have 23 steps to our place and found a double pulley luggage,etc lift extremely valuable. Sheets super soft. Would highly recommend!

Lovely and peaceful family-get-together on beautiful Riley lake

  • 5 of 5

Remote and quiet location on beautiful lakefront house. Perfect for families with children who love spending time in the water, playing, swimming, fishing. Water was so perfect, amazing water temperatures. Breathtaking sunsets! The house it self had everything we needed. Well equipped with all amenities included. It was clean and organised. Greg the owner is super friendly and helpful.

We loved the DVD collection, and the poor phone and internet reception gave us a nice break from the ever so busy online world.

Very nice place, simple and easy living. Recommended!

Best regards Donnah and Magnud, + kids: Oliver 13, Cassandra 12 and Isabell 10,

The dock over the water is the perfect spot for reading, meditation, fishing, or just enjoying the scenery. Very restful retreat.

A piece of Heaven away from the hustle and bustle of everyday living.

  • 5 of 5

Extremely pleasant vacation experience. The cabin was very clean and well stocked for our week get away. Quiet and serene with good fishing results. If you're looking for a place to get away from it all this is the one.
