The water is a deep directly off the dock and we've even seen a large turtle swim by!

The interior of the lake house will welcome you with a massive wall of windows overlooking breathtaking lake views with awesome colorful sunsets! This ranch style home has the perfect family friendly open floor plan. There is an oversized natural rock fireplace with electric fireplace too and a 9 ft solid farm style dining table!

We had a wonderful stay at this lake house!! The view is absolutely stunning!! My dad had a lot of fun watching the big boats going by! We enjoyed watching the pirate ship go in and out of Jolly Rogers. The only thing we wished was that the water wasn’t so rough. We were looking forward to parking our boats in front of the house but the waves were way too high. We tried to get in the water off the boat dock and had to get out bc of the rough water. We were able to find some very nice coves around the area. We were still overall very impressed and would recommend to anyone looking for a beautiful view at the lake!! The house itself was everything we hoped it would be!! Thanks again!!

The property was absolutely beautiful! Even better than the pictures and the location was wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at the broken turtle. The swim area was perfect and we were right across from a really fun restaurant. It rained while we were there and the boathouse allowed us to enjoy the outdoors even in the rain. We would absolutely stay here again and have already started planning our next trip! The boat traffic in front of the house was not bothersome and we were perfectly fine swimming right off the dock. The large kitchen and living space made it very comfortable and the dinners on the big deck overlooking the lake were wonderful. It felt very private even though there were neighbors on both sides. We had a blast and loved the house!
