Great view with lots of space for large families

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place for our large group. The indoor and outdoor hot tubs were great and the lower level of the first house was a perfect hangout area for the kids. The view was breathtaking. Location couldn't be better as it was close to the restaurants as well. I would highly recommend this rental!

Beautiful setting right on Lake Harmony.

  • 5 of 5

The big house is perfect for meals and socializing, the deck on the lake is perfect for evening gathering. Lots of space for our group of 20 and it never felt crowded. Good golf courses nearby. Grills at both houses. Hot tubs at both houses. Enjoy.

Great property with fantastic views and amenities!

  • 5 of 5

The property was very clean and in great shape. The location is fantastic and the lakefront deck with firepit and hot tub are amazing! The owner was extremely helpful with answering questions and directions regarding the property and around the area. I hope to make this stay an annual event.

Fantastic experience and location!

  • 5 of 5

The two houses are absolutely perfect for any sized group. We went for a football draft and had about 12 guys. We had plenty of room to hang out in the main house, the open layout was fantastic. Barry is the best, his response times can't be beat, and he took care of every last detail. The view is amazing and hanging out around the firepit makes it a perfect spot! There are restaurants and breakfast places a short 5 minute walk down the road as well. We grilled one night and we were very impressed by the quality of the grill itself as well as all of the kitchenware. A fantastic experience all around! Thank you Barry!

Great place, great host.

  • 5 of 5

Barry is great to deal with, fast reply and very agreeable. The houses were more than adequate to meet our needs. It's a beautiful property with lots of amenities! The only two small downsides I would note: the sidewalk/driveway connecting the cottage and the main house is some sort of weird thatched cinder block that is not filled with gravel and is thus very tricky to walk on in bare feet. It could possibly pose a safety concern to children with small feet (or a less than sober adult). Also, the two houses share a lot with another house (if privacy is a concern) which I'm not sure was made entirely clear in the listing. But again, these are just nit-picky things. Otherwise, we had a lovely time and it's always great renting from Barry. This is our second year in a row renting from him and it's always a pleasure. Will be back next year!

Owner's Response: This review is 5 stars but we would like to explain the two negative comments, one of which is very misleading. First, THERE IS NO SHARED LOT. There is a shared driveway and for lake front you would be hard pressed to find a larger lake front property. Our lake houses have 2 docks, private decks, including a very large deck on the lake, as well as a shed partially separating from view the next door dock and deck area. There are parking areas behind each house. You can tell all this from several of the photos, and from many of the other reviews. I suspect this comment derived from the guests expressing concerns to us about sitting outside late at night and making noise that might disturb the neighbors. As to the pavers, Lake Harmony has serious water run off concerns which cause silt to compromise the depth of the lake. There are strict guidelines regarding driveways and impervious ground. The pavers we have are the alternate to gravel, neither of which should be walked on with bare feet. On balance we appreciate this review, but felt compelled to correct what was obviously unintentionally misleading.
