About Julie and Wayne

We created many happy family memories in this lodge with our 5 kids and 18 nieces and nephews over the past 16 years. At times, we had over 25 guests for the holiday weekends. Now you have the opportunity to create happy memories as you get together with those you love.

Julie and Wayne purchased this house in 2001

Why Julie and Wayne chose Holcombe

We built this lodge when all our kids and nieces and nephews were young. It is a perfect getaway with a quiet street, quiet waterway and a large confortable space. There is something for everyone with the different amenities of both lakes. Pine Lake is quiet, no wake and great for canoeing or paddle boating. Take your boat under the bridge from Pine Lake to Lake Holcombe and you have over 3900 acres of water to explore. On Lake Holcombe you can choose beaches and picnics in the park (3 county/public beaches/ picnic areas to choose from), fine and casual dining, bar and grills, live music or just put the anchor down and enjoy the serene beauty. Don't forget to explore Cranberry lake too. There are many low traffic areas to bike or walk. Neighbors are friendly.

What makes this house unique

We love to fish, paddle boat and explore Pine Lake in the early morning hours (listen carefully and you will hear the loons on Pine Lake) and then head out to Lake Holcombe with the water skiers as the sun gets hot later in the day. Cranberry Lake is also filled with great fishing spots and if you are lucky, you will find the eagles in their nest on the east end of the lake. With so many lightly traveled roads, we do alot of biking and walking.

Our family enjoys the winters by snowshoeing and snowmobiling. The beautiful snowmobile trail system can be accessed from the lodge.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for everything -- you have a gorgeous house and it was really easy to book and make this vacation happen. My family all raved about the house and the location and want to come back every two years for a vacation there : ) That's about as glowing a review as you can get!

Roomy and comfortable

  • 4 of 5

We had a nice stay at Lake Holcombe, despite some unseasonable weather. The home was large enough to accommodate our big group comfortably. The kitchen was adequately appointed. Some updates to the game room and A/V set up would be nice -- the sound system didn't have a cable to hook up a phone, the video equipment was pretty dated, and many of the machines in the game room did not work, but we had fun playing ping pong in the rain. Overall, it was a comfortable place to gather a large group of family and friends, and at a reasonable price.

Great home with lots of space

  • 5 of 5

We had a large group that consisted of two couples, two singles and two families with children. We had a lot of fun and it was a perfect space for us - plenty of living room space, kitchen space and bedroom space. The deck was perfect for sitting outside in the morning - we used that a lot!

There were a few small issues that we came across such as the outside garbage bin being completely full when we got there and the grill not being cleaned, but overall we would definitely stay there again and we would recommend it to others.

The homeowner was very easy to get in touch with, quick to respond back to me and was happy to answer any and all questions I had

Practically perfect!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time at the Pine Lake Lodge. It was a nearly perfect weekend. I say nearly perfect because we are in search of a house/cabin large enough for our family (25+ people) that is beachfront property. This lodge is on a channel between two lakes and the beach is about a 10 minute walk. The beach was not great and the lake was filled with algae when we were there. Everything else about this place is great. There was plenty of sleeping room, a nice big yard and a fun game room downstairs. The wood on the property was not good for burning so we had to buy some. We had a campfire three nights in a row and there were no bugs!! The kitchen had almost everything we needed for our meal preparation. The owners were very quick to respond to my emails and questions. I highly recommend the Pine Lake Lodge.

The house was very nice

  • 2 of 5

The house was very nice but as far as the business part of it, we are VERY disappointed. We had to go out of our way to pick up the keys and drop them off again on our way home. I have made several calls including several emails in attempt to receive my deposit refunded and still have no response. The lack of communication on the owners part is terrible. I would highly NOT recommend dealing with these owners. I am forced to taking other legal actions in attempt to receive my deposit.

Owner's Response: I am happy to hear that you enjoyed Pine Lake Lodge. We take pride in offering a wonderful rental experience with great amenities. VRBO holds and automatically sends back the security deposit to renters after a set period of time to allow the property owner to make a claim. I am sorry that you did not understand this situation after I explained it on the phone. Hope you consider Pine Lake Lodge in the future.
