Perfect 4 Weeks at the Lake

  • 5 of 5

Kayaking most days, fishing, swimming, relaxing on the back deck and dock, meals prepared in a well equipped kitchen... we enjoyed every minute of our stay. The ping pong table was a big hit. The home and property are well kept, spacious, and clean. Candy and Paul are quickly available to solve any problem. We enjoyed 4 weeks of good weather. The closeness to hiking and biking trails and sunrise/sunset overlooks was a plus, as was not being far from mainstream grocery, pet, clothing, and Walmart stores, although... when at the lake house you feel away from it all!

Great Weekend Get Away

  • 5 of 5

This house is beautiful and perfect for our family of 4. Very clean and very quiet. Kitchen is well stocked, and everything you could need is included. We added on the boat rental and loved having time out on the lake. The guys at the Marina were wonderful when we went in to get gas, and very helpful. The owners are very nice and super easy to work with. We loved it and would definitely stay again!

A Wonderful Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

The house was very clean, spacious and in good working order. The kitchen is very well appointed with virtually everything you could ask for. The owners have thought of just about everything you could want in a vacation home, plenty of linens, blankets, games, videos, pool, ping pong. We spent a good deal of time on the deck overlooking the lake. We rented the boat and had so much fun. The lake is very large, clear and absolutely wonderful for swimming and floating on a hot summer day.

We really enjoyed every minute of our stay and highly recommend this home. We hope to return in the future.
