About the property

Mid century modern one of a kind architecture nestled in a wooded lakeside retreat. Secluded 3.5 wooded acres on a lake. The house make you feel like you are in nature, whether you are enjoying wildlife and nature from indoors, or take a nature walk in the woods or along the lake. 10 mins from any shopping and food needs. Mins from walking/biking trails and other parks. 30 mins from downtown Columbus. Although kids and pets are welcome, please be attentive and present for their safety. This one of a kind architecture with dramatic views indoors and out is breathtaking, but requires constant child and pet supervision. Includes multiple common indoor and outdoor living spaces. And a fun game and bar room. This is a hang out and entertaining paradise.

Great place to gather with family

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay here. Very secluded but close to the city. The sunrise view is worth waking early for. There is a steep bank directly behind the house but it did not deter me from catching several species of fish from the top of the bank. The kayak launch is adequate and down a path adjacent to the house. The game room is awesome for late night fun. Very nice kitchen. Plenty of parking for others to come visit. We can't wait to come back!

We LOVED the house. Much bigger than the photos. The views are stunning!

  • 5 of 5

My now husband and I got married here this weekend. It was the most magical experience! I cannot wait for the photos to come out! The house is right on the water and every window has a great view of either the forrest or the water. The view in the master bedroom is to die for. So many supplies in the kitchen (even a whole cabinet with extra party supplies bug spray, citronella candles, detergent, iron etc). Plus they had so many games and movies! Even including cards against humanity. How fun! Everything worked great. Only thing: I think someone swiped their hair dryers because we couldn’t find any. Other than wishing the hot tub worked, it was magical. Even prettier than the photos. Homeowners were very kind and great to work with! I hope we can come back here on our anniversaries. What a special place. We would go back (and all of our family and friends would too!) in a heartbeat! Thanks for sharing your beautiful home. We now have so many beautiful memories from this home!

A secluded wooded retreat

  • 4 of 5

A large stylish house that overlooks the lake with beautiful views. We enjoyed playing pool, kayaking, canoeing and sitting by the fire lakeside. A deer with her baby doe wandered by the house while a groundhog entertained us by the kitchen window. It was truly a lovely house well equipped for relaxing and enjoying Hoover Dam. The short drive to Westerville was convenient. Wandering the main street with its period shopfronts, quaint cafes, antique shop and farmer's market made for good window shopping. The heavy rains tested the roof a bit and showed were some repair was needed but it didn't impact our stay. Attention was needed for the steady leak in the ensuite shower-head and prepare for some early morning sunrises in the master bedroom if staying in the summer as, though the view is stunning, with no curtains on the windows the morning sun is unhindered. We would stay there again in a heartbeat.

Beautiful views, Gorgeous, Spacious, Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We loved the place. It was perfect for our family stay and was only 2 miles from my brothers house and other events in Westerville and Columbus. The check-in and check out was very easy. The home also provided a very nice gathering point for our extended family following a funeral and reception. It was nice to be able to host the gathering in the spacious kitchen, living room, and game room We would definitely recommend it and would be interested in using it again. It’s got everything!
