What makes this estate unique

I bought a campfire girls camp in 1995 that was 60 acres on two lakes. I kept the best 20 acres and the best 400 feet of water frontage and built a large log home for my 5 daughters and large extended family in 2000. Now that my daughters are grown and spread out I decided to share some of the beauty of this wonderful place. I recently purchasd an additional 500 feet of lake frontage adjacent to my property, increasing my frontage to 900 feet. As such, the home is very private.

Great place to make memories!!

  • 5 of 5

The house and lake were perfect for our family of 17. Even the weather was perfect for swimming, pontooning, kayaking and laying out on the raft. We make great memories with our family there!!

A Family Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Our four generation family loved this property. It's isolated enough that there is privacy, the lake is clear and sandy, plus the large home is well stocked with all the paper and cleaning supplies that you'll need for day to day living. In addition, the owner answers email promptly, and tries to be accommodating. A word of caution, though, in that the steps leading down to the lake are fairly steep and without a handrail, making it difficult for anyone with physical limitations to navigate. Be aware, too, that with the system of charging for cleaning after your stay, without a set fee, it's harder for several families to divide up costs until after your stay.

Owner's Response: I’m glad the guests had a good time. That’s important to us as owners. We are still rebuilding after the tornado. The lake stairs railings are the last undone item. Although the specially made railings were finally delivered into the garage in late June, we are awaiting installation since log railing is a special skill done by just a few local craftsman. Hopefully they will be installed soon. We have experimented with fixed cleaning fees verse hourly, and most guests stated they prefer hourly fees since it’s more reasonable.

Beautiful Place with a lot of room - Plus

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for sharing your home. We really enjoyed being right on the lake! There is enough room to have 5 different families here and still enjoy your privacy. The kids could make noise playing ping-pong downstairs and we could not hear them on the other side of the house, just perfect! The kitchen and dinning area was big enough for our whole group to have meals together and the entire house is very comfortable for all. Please update your site photo of the beach front green area because, due to the storm a year ago, it is in large part gone and very unusable. The other huge plus is, that we enjoyed using the multiple kayaks and the kids loved the sand bottom lake and swimming platform! Thanks again, already planning our next trip!

Great private place, lake is great for swimming and canoeing

  • 5 of 5

Very roomy. Lake is very clean and starts shallow, perfect for swimming. We had a great time, went swimming and canoeing almost every day. Also made a campfire with s’mores. Well equipped place, only regret is we should have rented jet skis.

Property Damage Protection $99
Cleaning/security deposi $1,500

There is a cleaning fee of $25/hour that is taken out of your cleaning/security deposit. It usually runs about $225. Balance of cleaning/ security deposit is returned to renter within 14 days. I add 2.5 % for credit card payments to off-set my fees. If you cancel I will refund your money less $500 re-booking fee only if a new renter books your cancelled dates. Holiday rates are the same as summer rates. From late june to early august I rent friday to friday only (ie 7 nights) to accommodate guests who desire a full seven day vacation. Remainder of summer I will rent a minimum of 5 days sunday to friday (or 6 days saturday to friday) for guests who desire a shorter stay.
