Our home is a beautiful Bungalow Craftsman style. It was extensively remodeled in 1999. It has 5 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, a Screen Porch (with hurricane shutters) & 3 Fireplaces. The master bedroom (king sized bed) and another room (queen sized bed) are on the top floor, and the other three bedrooms are downstairs (two rooms with twin beds and one with a king). There is a family room downstairs with a television and games. Adjoining there is a foosball table and a workout room. The living room is upstairs with cedar beams throughout and into the kitchen area. The kitchen and eating area is maple hardwood, and the kitchen cabinets are cherry.
Sleeps 10 comfortably, with additional room in the porch (could sleep 2 on the futon in summertime)
Total square footage is 4,754 S.F.
There is a large flat back yard for games and other activities, right on the lakefront.
Two car attached garage.
We have a large family and use VRBO for almost all vacation travel. For the most part we have had excellent experiences. This one was not. First the communication and payment arrangements were outside the norm. The owner directed us not to pay through VRBO, but to pay by check. This removed any protections we had. Second, we received many messages from VRBO saying that we had not paid, creating some anxiety on the lead up to the weekend. Third, the house itself is very lived in with many personal things in the living spaces. Finally, quality of the beds, linens, the overall cleanliness and other items important to a traveller did not justify the price we paid. On the positive side the location is very nice and quiet.
What a beautiful home! 17 of us descended on this and a neighboring cabin last week and had a wonderful time. The cabin had everything we needed and more. The views from the deck, with plenty of seating, were peaceful and beautiful, the beds were comfortable, and the kitchen well stocked! We are a family of people who like to cook and everything we needed was there with room for us to cook together. It is a very spacious home. When the weather didn't cooperate there was a foosball table for the kids, a large entertainment room, and an exercise room as well as a fire pit for the all important campfire. We brought our wave runners and rented a pontoon, and there was more than enough space on the dock to tie up, it worked out great. The only thing that was a bit of a disappointment was that there was no gas grill. There is a small "big green egg" which we knew how to use, but not large enough for our group so we had to grill in batches. An issue not big enough to mar our stay, but big enough to mention for future renters. We loved it!
We are a group of middle-aged women who go somewhere together every summer for a long weekend. We sometimes have a hard time finding a place that we can rent for 3 nights, and we were so happy to find this one!!
First of all, the family is phenomenal to work with. They stay in contact and provide lots of information readily. One great thing about this place is you don't have to pay anything until 60 days before, and when you have a large group of people and you're trying to figure out who can go and get them to pay, it helps to be able to pay this way.
The place is absolutely gorgeous. We had high expectations from the pictures and description, and the property met and, most of the time, far exceeded these expectations. The bedrooms are roomy and beautifully decorated. The kitchen is very well stocked and includes top-notch appliances for those who like to cook. There are two great gathering places (one upstairs and one downstairs where the tv is) and a huge table for meals along with an island with stools around it. It makes it really easy to hang out together and have fun.
Our favorite part of the whole house was the screened-in porch. We spent hours out there in the mornings drinking our coffee and chatting. It is really shaded so it stays cool and there's a ceiling fan that helps with that. The fact that there's no AC isn't really troublesome because there are ceiling fans in almost every room of the house.
This is a great place and we are planning on coming back next year already!
