charming house right on the water!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Awesome stay away from the temps, kayaking, and couldn't get enough of the deck overlooking the water.

The house is clean, comfortable, and has most everything you would need in a home away from home. It is pretty dated, but it's all about the patio overlooking the lake! Coffee in the morning, every meal, and nightcaps...all on that great patio deck.

This is a great place to stay if you are looking for a relaxing trip and appreciate outdoor activities and viewing wild life. Can launch kayaks right in front of house, or public launch decks for larger boats aren't far. The hummingbirds put on a great show too! We bought a bag of sugar and refilled feeders to keep them coming. (They eat a lot!!..we left sugar in the cabinet:). All the neighbors were really friendly and happy to say hello. We had a great time!! Would highly recommend.

Not As Advertised

  • 1 of 5

This is NOT a luxury townhouse. Looks like it hasn't been updated since the 1970's. The floor and carpet were very dirty. The lake is full of algae. We only stayed one night of the three. The description of this place needs to be changed. Would not recommend it.

Owner's Response: WOW, Mean unhappy person!!! I would have hoped the renters would have called me immediately and I would have had my cleaning check the house. I would have given them a full refund if they were unhappy. I know the quality of our cleaning people and they are meticulous. We have used them for ten years and they do quality work. The pictures posted are accurate and up to date. We have lot's of reviews and this one is a hack or just a mean unhappy person.

The lake and townhome were as billed, very enjoyable, comfortable and relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

We had four adults in our party and there was plenty of room for all to stretch out. With two decks, we had choices for viewing the lake with many types of birds, or star gazing, depending on the time of day. Everyone was very polite in the complex and also dog friendly. We would highly recommend this property for anyone wanting a quiet and relaxing get-away!

Townhouse on Lake

  • 4 of 5

Townhouse is right on Rainbow Lake. We enjoyed having a glass of wine on the back patio and watching all the wild life.

Need to relax?

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely site to relax. The lake is tranquil and the ducks and geese are entertaining. The condo is a little dated, but well-maintained and stocked with what you need. Strong wifi and cable are nice to have. The rental comfortably slept my husband and I, our 2 teens and my parents; could fit more people. We did some fishing took our Jeep through some fun area motorized vehicle trails, and ate too much at the local restaurants. I would stay again!
