FABULOUS!! This house is a wonderful place!!

  • 5 of 5

Great house; everything very open for fabulous views of the lake!! Nice beach and outdoor accommodations! The house and cabin are extremely clean with all the amenities you need for a nice stay!! Thank you so much for sharing your home with us. Our family from Colorado came to visit and this was the perfect place for us to show them what a gem Santa Fe Lake is here in our little town. We will definitely be back!!

We live on the lake in a much smaller home so this house was the perfect size for our family as well as our family from Colorado so we could all visit and enjoy the lake together! Great location to enjoy the sunsets too! Can’t wait to visit the house and that side of the lake again with family and friends!! Thanks to Mike as well for being such a great host. Very quick responses and extremely accommodating through each aspect of booking the house as well as through our stay at the house. Great to work with!!

Thanks again!! We had a wonderful time!!

It's a beautiful location and quiet!

  • 4 of 5

My dogs loved it, too. They loved walking around with all of the strange and wonderful new scents. The home is quite comfortable and not too far from town or Gainesville. It does need an upgrade on the 30 year old TV! The satellite would probably work better with a new one, too. We loved the lake. If we had been there when it was warmer, we would have been in the lake constantly as we are originally from Florida. Overall, it is very nice. I would recommend it to a friend.

Perfect Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

With a large family of 12 adults and 4 kids (5 - 2 yrs old) this was the perfect location! The house was spacious, tidy and clean. The lake front was perfect for the kids to enjoy the sand, yet also jump off the dock while us adults were able to stand (on our tippy toes) in the water. If you don't want to swim, you can enjoy one of many chairs that line the yard or even enjoy the hammock from the deck. We had a wonderful time and will recommend to anyone looking.
