Rentals begin and end on Saturdays. Beautiful ranch home with a lower walkout finished basement, built in 2006. Nicely furnished; all you need to bring is your suitcases, groceries, trash bags, charcoal, hygiene supplies, and toilet paper and toiletries. You also may want to bring fire wood if you plan to use our outdoor fire pit so you don't have to scrounge around the area or buy it. Just about everything else is provided. If you're vacationing with your friends or have older children that want some privacy...this is it.
This house has a maximum approved occupancy for 10 people over age 2, plus 4 children under age 3 at the time of the rental.
The upper level has 3 bedrooms (2 king and 1 queen size beds), 2 full baths (1 in the master bedroom suite and the other in the hallway between the 2 bedrooms), a modern kitchen, dining room, living room with a 42' satellite TV, and a laundry room. Walk out to a large balcony with a stainless steel gas BBQ grill, and sit back in comfortable chairs and enjoy a nice view of the lake with beautiful evening sunsets.
The lower level is almost self-sustaining with 3 bedrooms (2 with queen beds and the 3rd with a bunk bed (1 full size bed on the bottom and 1 twin bed on top)). There's also a queen size sleeper sofa in the recreation room. There's 1 full bath next to the kitchen, a partial kitchen/wet bar with a full refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker, and toaster oven, a huge recreation room with a 42' Satellite TV, pool table, dart board, 12' Shuffleboard table, and card table. Walk out to a covered patio with a charcoal grill and relax in the hammock with your favorite drink. There's also a picnic table and 6' square kennel next to the patio.
The master bedroom has gorgeous furniture and the king size bed is so soft and comfortable you may spend your vacation right there watching a movie on the wall-mounted 32' TV... Unless you take a few moments to relax in an over-sized tub surrounded by wall candles. The second bedroom on the upper level has a semi-firm king size mattress, and the third bedroom has a new queen size mattress. The rooms are beautifully decorated and very spacious.
There are gas fire logs in the upstairs and downstairs fireplaces. Sit back and enjoy a nice warm fire with your loved ones on those cool Fall and Winter evenings. Please don't put anything into these fireplaces; if you want to cook some marshmallows or any other food items, we have a huge fire pit in the backyard for your enjoyment.
Linens and towels are provided as an option. You will need to strip the sheets and pillow cases off the beds, and wash and dry them and the towels before your departure. Please do not leave laundry in the dryer. Or, you can bring your own bed linens and towels and don't worry about doing the laundry on your last day of vacation. It does take a while to wash and dry all of the linens and towels. Please let me know at least 2 weeks ahead of time so I can notify the cleaning service.
There's plenty to do right at the lake house or within a few hundred yards. You can walk down to the beach for a swim, or take the pedal boat out with 3 others for a fun spin around the cove or do some fishing. Or, pedal yourselves over to the Marina's sandy beach for sunbathing and fun stuff to do for the kids.
Children of all ages will have a blast running the 4 passenger golf cart around the yard or exploring the neighborhood (must be 15 or older to drive)...or taking the golf cart over to the Marina in the morning or afternoon for breakfast, lunch, or to use the playground... then you and yours can drive it over at night to enjoy the Tiki Bar with great food and live entertainment on weekends. The restaurant and tiki bar are seasonal; opening in mid April and closing the end of September.
If you're bringing a boat we do not have a dock available on the property; but, we do have a covered slip with a lift at the Marina (slip #E24); located just around the corner from the house. This is a short 5 minute walk or use the golf cart and zip right over. There's food, beverages, gas, and even ice cream, all at this convenient location. If you need a boat, don't worry, the Marina rents those too.
Our waterfront area is small, but it has a sandy and grassy beach. There's plenty of room to sit in a lounge chair and watch the kids play. There's also a fire pit near the beach so your family can enjoy an evening campfire and roast marshmallows. Our membership at the Marina offers the use of their beach that has a dock, swim platform, and swings for the kids.
And yes, we love our pets and if you need to bring your four legged friends along on your vacation it's okay. Some restrictions apply.
We'll try to make your vacation fun and relaxing. If there's something you need we'll do our best to make it happen!
Keep checking on the calendar for availability dates; some dates are temporarily blocked pending tentative reservations. I update the availability calendar every few days!
We have a Hughes Net wi-fi system for high-speed internet access! The plan has 20GB per month. Each weekly renter is provided 5GB for free. This ensures high speed internet service is available for each weekly renter. If you exceed the 5 GB, I can only purchase additional bytes form Hughes Net in 10GB increments. A $30 fee for each increment of 10GB will be deducted from the deposit.
