Space 3,200 sq. ft.
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 - 7 nights


About the property

4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths (Sleeps 8) Max 10

Building my own lake house in 2007 was a dream come true after spending summers on a lake growing up. Memories of spending time with family and friends splashing around in the lake, capping the night off with campfires roasting marshmallows, and watching the stars from the hot tub shaped how I designed everything from family rooms overlooking the lake, to the sandy beach and large dock.

The open floor plan is spaciously (3200 sq ft) designed to accommodate as many as 10 comfortably – with two family rooms (one up and one down), numerous board games and a ping pong table for inside recreation. The upstairs family room opens into the kitchen and boasts a warm cozy fireplace for winter nights. There are TV’s with cable and DVD players throughout. The master bedroom has access to an upper level deck and view of the lake as well as a master bath with a whirlpool bathtub. In addition to the master, there are three additional bedrooms (queen, 2 twins, and one full) as well as a queen size pull out bed in the upstairs family room. Complete linens, blankets, and pillows are supplied. In addition to the master bath, there are two full bathrooms (one up and one down). All linens are supplied– including dedicated towels for the beach and hot tub. The kitchen is fully stocked with cookware, barware, and utensils, as well modern appliances (including such things as coffee maker, blender, dishwasher and microwave). There is a large gas grill on the upper deck for easy access to the kitchen, and outdoor furniture and dining table on the lower deck. For evening campfires, there is a fire pit.

For outdoor recreation, the 3-car driveway doubles as a basketball court with an adjustable hoop. For the oversized back yard, we offer a number of yard games, and there are numerous fishing poles, water toys and flotation rafts for water recreation off the beach and dock. The house sits in a semi-private cove, nestled behind a lily pad that allows for direct access to the lake, but sits back a bit resulting in slightly less traffic. There are four kayaks and a paddle board for greater access to the lake. Because the lake is private, there is no public access to the boat ramp.

Within two miles of the house, May through November, Texas Township offers a Farmers Market where local vegetables, meats, sweets, snacks and flowers abound. Close to the Farmers Market, bike routes can be accessed for hours of off-roading and groomed trails for less adventuresome bike-riding.

Perfect family retreat!

  • 5 of 5

I don't typically provide reviews but felt the need to here. From check-in to check-out it was perfect! Lifetime memories were made this week for me and my family. Very comfortable, beautiful setting and everything you need to feel right at home while still feeling like you are on a grand vacation! There was even cornhole, a paddle board and two cayaks! Looking forward to visiting again! Thanks Stephenie!

Had a great time! Property was perfect for us!

  • 5 of 5

Property was exactly as advertised. It was the perfect home for our group of 10. The home is beautiful and very comfortable. I have three daughters and we LOVED the master bathroom. I would recommend it to anyone with similar needs and group size. Thank you for a lovely weekend. Rose Carr

The property was gorgeous. So inviting and warm you felt like you were in your own home.

  • 5 of 5

The view of the lake was beautiful. The kitchen had everyrlthing for us to be able to cook meals so we could just relax and enjoy family time together. We felt so comfortable. The beds were comfy! Wish we could have stayed longer than the weekend. Great place for a family to spend quality time together!

Beautiful and comfortable home.

  • 5 of 5

There were 8 of us that rented this house for a New Year's getaway. The house seemed to be newer or newly remodeled with SS appliances.

The house was equipped with everything we needed and everything was in good working order. We really liked everything, though, the houses seemed a little to close to each other.

We're considering renting again in the summer.

Beautiful Rental - Highly Recommend

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I went there for a short get away. Pets allowed, we took our 2 dogs. What a beautiful home, perfect set up, very cozy. Everything you could need, as it was well stocked. Lovely lake, peaceful with beautiful Swans. We kayaked, loved it. Stephanie was very responsive and we look forward to taking the entire family there for a longer stay. Thank you Stephanie for a wonderful stay.

Great place to vacation!

  • 4 of 5

This vacation rental is well stocked and comes with many things to do. The water was great and we liked the sandy bottom of the lake. There is plenty of room for a large group. We appreciated being able to use the kayak, paddle boards, and all the lawn toys. The bed in the master is very comfortable. The lake house was very clean.

The only reason we did not rate this a 5 star is that there is not an area where the entire family can eat together.

The owner was very responsive to any problems we incurred during the week. We enjoyed our vacation on Crooked Lake.
