What a great home for a family reunion

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time here at the house. The lake is beautiful and very quiet and peaceful location. Lots of room for everyone and great big area to play games and eat together. We enjoyed the house some much we didn't even go out and explore the area.

The pictures don't do it justice!

  • 4 of 5

We reserved this home, last minute, because we are a large family that was coming in from out of town for a memorial service. We didn't have many options so we settled on this property. We were so pleasantly surprised with the home - the pictures don't do it justice. There were 13 of us and there was still room for more people if we needed it. The owners left us sweet notes for our arrival and were very flexible with us. They even left us a yummy bottle of wine. The beds upstairs were super comfy - something that's hard to find w/rentals. The property was beautiful. The only downfalls were some of the amenities didn't work well. The vacuum was an electrical hazard, the dryer took forever and made weird noises and most of the remotes didn't work for the televisions, etc. (and the TV's only had a few basic channels). Also, the couches weren't very clean and could maybe use some slipcovers. However, I'm very picky and still thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. I would love to bring the family together again, for a better occasion, and all stay here during the summer.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your review! We are glad your overall stay was comfortable. We are so pleased when we get feedback from guests with issues that we wouldn't otherwise find so easily. Since your stay, we have replaced batteries and ensured that the remotes worked. We rented a fabric cleaner machine to handle the tough cleaning of our couches. The vacuum cleaner is an old one, it will be replaced! The cable during this season is pretty basic and the nightly rate reflects that, however during our summer months, the programs get upgraded. Thanks again!

Nice location and house.

  • 4 of 5

Water pressure was an issue. Told us in a note but could have been in issue if we needed to get ready to go out all at once. We made due but shower turned off if toilet flushed

Awesome rental home :)

  • 5 of 5

The house is very clean and nicely decorated. The kids had a blast playing in the sand and lake all weekend. Very quiet area, we were probably the loudest on the lake with big family. But wasn't an issue.
