Great Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Myself and three other married couples enjoyed a great Memorial Day weekend here. The house was very spacious, clean and the amenities were great. The kayaks were a fun way to see the lake, and the fire wood and pit were great for roasting marshmallows. There was plenty of cookware, kitchen utensils, and plates for everyone. Eleanor and her mangers Ellie and Barbara were very nice and great to work with. An awesome relaxing, quiet weekend!

Family vacation !

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at this property and everyone (Children & Grandchildren) had a fabulous time. The property is kept in excellent condition, there are kayak's and a canoe available to use, plus life vests and other needs. Everything you need to barbecue and prepare meals is on the property. There is even a fire pit with wood to enjoy after the grandchildren are put to bed. We definitely plan on returning for our third stay next year !

Family Fun

  • 5 of 5

We recently enjoyed a wonderful time with family at this spacious lake front home. The house was everything we anticipated, spacious, well equipped, good parking all in a relaxing atmosphere. The grandchildren enjoyed many activities right on the property such as kayaking & fishing along with the occasional glimpse of local animals. The golf course is close by and in excellent condition. We were greeted by Barbara the manager who answered any questions we had and ensured our visit met everyone's expectations. The children & grandchildren are looking forward to another visit next summer!

Beautiful Memories at a Beautiful Spot

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a FANTASTIC family vacation at this beautifully appointed home. The inside is charming and very spacious with an elegant country cabin feel. The outside is breathtaking with beautiful lake views from a large , flower-laden deck to the multi-layered flagstone patios to the lake front dock area with swing and table and chairs. There are even stairs down into the lake, where my grandchildren swam every day using the provided noodles. My children loved the 2 kayaks and the canoe, especially at sunset. The kitchen is well-equipped with lots of pots and pans and baking dishes. The diningroom is huge with room for lots of people.. Eleanor, the owner, has thought of everything to make a vacation here truly relaxing and Barbara is a delightful Manager who is at your door in minutes to solve any problem that might arise. You couldn't pick a better spot to relax, unwind and create beautiful memories.
