Weekend get away.

  • 5 of 5

We have been going to this location for many years. Tom and Sue Ellen are very accommodating. We started taking our kids for Columbus Day weekend and now that they are older, we go by ourselves. The place is always very clean and they think of everything. There are nice restaurants near by. The place is perfect for family or just a get away weekend with friends.

Absolutely Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

When my family and I decided to rent a place on the lake, we wanted it to be cozy and feel like home...well, we found the perfect place!! This home was exactly what we were looking for. It was super clean and had everything that we needed. We enjoyed spending mornings on the back deck enjoying our coffee and had a blast ending our night on the screened in porch playing our nightly game of scrabble. The kids also enjoyed the paddle boat, swim raft and other board games. Everyone had a wonderful week!! Thanks again, Sue Ellen and Tom, we'll see you next year!!

Another great week!

  • 5 of 5

The second time we spent our annual "girls getaway" week at Magician Lake and we felt right a home. We especially enjoyed paddling the kayaks around the lake and enjoying the view while dining, playing games and relaxing on the porch. Thanks again Sue Ellen and Tom, were already looking forward to next year.

Sue Ellen and Tom are wonderful people! My husband and I came here on our honeymoon. The cabin was clean, adorable and we had the entire place to ourselves. Sue Ellen was even sweet enough to place rose petals and balloons for us! They had kayaks and a paddle boat to use at our disposal.We also played with the board games, watch movies on the flat screen that had a DVD player. We plan on making this a yearly visit!

Lovely Stay Again

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time again this June, staying at Tom and Sue's place. The weather was a little trickier than last year, but the lake as beautiful as ever. My daughters had a good time, and my wife and I scored big with the bluegill! Thanks again, Tom and Sue Ellen!
