When life gives you lemons...

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in October with my writers’ critique group. There were eight of us. The house was spacious and well stocked with everything we needed. The view was gorgeous with lots of windows to grant the eye access from within. There were lots of areas to separate when we needed those quiet moments to create awesome stories. Both upstairs downstairs inside and out. We made use of the fire pit, kitchen, porches, and patios and were pleased everything. In most houses that I’ve rented, I have one complaint… The coffee pot. I was so beyond pleased with the coffee pot at this rental. It was a ninja… And it was a nice ninja. Those coffeepots are amazing. So thank you to the owners for not supplying a cheap $15 coffee pot for a group of writers who desperately needed coffee all day long. And sometimes you run into cheap, thin towels. That was not the case. The towels were nice, new, and plush. Now for those lemons… first off, there was absolutely nothing the owner could’ve done; the dishwasher went out. It was a new dishwasher, and we could tell by looking at it. Nice, new, stainless steel dishwasher. It just stopped working. So what did the owner do? She made lemonade. She came right over to take a look at it, and when she could not get it to work, she went to the store and purchased loads of paper goods so we would not have to do a ton of dishes. Thank you, Debra, for turning our lemons into lemonade.

Perfect Thanksgiving

  • 5 of 5

My only question is this: Why would they let anyone else enjoy this house for Thanksgiving? Absolutely perfect. Beautiful setting with view of lake right from the living room. Really well stocked kitchen with giant frig and a full sized frig downstairs. Double oven. More pot/pans etc than you will need. Great table with leaf extension. We smoked a turkey! Also lots of fun spaces. We enjoyed the game table and downstairs bar. We used the fire pit by the lake and that was memorable! Quiet neighborhood with minimal road noise and lots of friendly cats to visit. Honestly, I can't wait to come up with an excuse to rent this house again.

The house great. The Grand kids loved it.

  • 4 of 5

The back yard was perfect for relaxing and enjoying the lake. The kids liked the evenings around the fire pit. There is plenty of room in the house to spread out. We had 7 adults and 3 young kids. I would recommend this property to anyone looking for a lake retreat getaway.

The only down side is all of the stairs in the house and on the deck around the house.

Always a great get away!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd time to stay at Debra's house and we absolutely love it! Our second day there we had a pretty bad storm and rain that came in and Debra had one of her family members come down and check on us to be sure we were okay! The house was very clean and comfortable! We will for sure be back!

Great family spot, awesome swimming spot.

  • 4 of 5

We had a great stay, the house it is great for family get togethers, lots of place to hangout. The kitchen had everything we needed. The out side was great for the kids to run around even with out shoes. Close but not to close, to go swimming, and we loved that we could rent kayaks and paddle boards from the owners. The house in side and out is in great shape. The only thing, and why I gave it 4 stars is, to much person stuff and nick knacks around the house we were afraid we were going to break something, we had small children with us so we moved a lot of things up and out of the way . The other is slow or no responses to email questions, but phone calls were answered promptly. The walk through took up a little more time then I wanted We were excite and ready to unpack and get things started so I think maybe a book of instruction would have covered everything. Over all My family said they would go back best place we have had our family Vacation at.
