Absolutely Amazing

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough good things about our stay! Gene and Irene really have done a fabulous job of creating a true relaxing getaway. The amenities in the house were beyond anything I could have expected, they had anything and everything you would need. The whole house was stocked with kitchen supplies, towels, games, and anything else you may have forgotten. The view from the balcony was so nice, it felt like we were in a tree house. My family and I made some wonderful memories this Labor day weekend! Can't wait to book again!

The charm of a country cabin but well appointed like a fine city house.

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful lake house with charm of a country cabin but well appointed like a fine city house. The perfect place to relax and enjoy tree top views of the serene lake and walking distance to the beach. Just about everything you need has been thought of and one could almost just pack clothes and food to be set for a relaxing stay.

The property was well maintained, peaceful, and comfortable. Would definitely stay again!

  • 5 of 5

The property was well maintained and cared for, on a quiet wooded lot well above the water-line. The house was comfortable and had a well-stocked kitchen, comfortable beds, and cute decorations everywhere. The property was well-above the water so the steps were a little tiring, but definitely doable. The lake was quiet and peaceful, we were usually the only ones out there on the boat so it was great for skiing and tubing. Overall I would definitely recommend this property. The owner was also very responsive to emails and questions which made the process very easy overall.

Great place for family and friends

  • 4 of 5

We stayed with our adult daughters and two young grandsons. Like many other reviews we found this home welcoming, very clean, well-stocked. Lovely setting. We live in the general area so it was fun to have this close retreat. Though its a compact house it has lots of rooms and niches which is nice when you want to separate a large group! We swam at Whitewater beach because of the little ones. Rocky (we were told) and murky along the pier of the actual home. The wrap around porch is outstanding, though like others we had trouble with the mosquitos even with repellent. All and all a great stay.

Wonderful private get away!

  • 5 of 5

The property is beautiful and the home is very homey and clean. Gene and Irene made sure our every need was met. We enjoyed renting a pontoon at nearby Whitewater Lake. My favorite part was waking up and having breakfast on the porch each morning -listening to the birds and enjoying the lake view! I second the reviews about bringing bug spray for the evenings. It exceeded our expectations. It was a wonderful family get away!
