Perfect, perfect place to make family memories!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Tonia made making the reservation a breeze! She was very responsive to emails and answered each and every question I had quickly! The home when we walked in was so so welcoming and the home was super clean and organized. It was everything and more then what was advertised!

The outside area was absolutely perfect for our large group! Plenty of wonderful lawn space to enjoy provided lawn games. Many many chairs available for us to enjoy the firepit... And, a nice deck near the river and a concrete walkway along the water allowed us to fish and get close to the water and sunsets!

The kitchen is modern and any and everything you need to prepare and eat family meals was available! Big screen TVs to watch the disappointing IU game and furniture that was very very comfortable!

We so enjoyed our whole family gathering- the young and old- for a weekend at this fabulous home! Everywhere on the property, inside and out, we were able to enjoy one another and make memories to last a lifetime. We thank Tonia for making this possible and making it so easy for us to gather.

Until another time, thanks so much for opening and sharing your beautiful home- truly a memory maker!

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

The house was more and better than even the pictures showed. There was plenty of space for my family to spread out and not irritate each while still spending time together. I would definitely rent this house again, if I travel to Indiana again. Owners were just a text away if there were any problems and extremely friendly.

Friends Reunion

  • 5 of 5

House, yard, lake and accommodations were perfect. Lots of room for everyone. Yard games were a huge hit. We would rent this place again.

Large family vacation home -- worked great for reunion.

  • 4 of 5

Roomy and comfortable house with a nice view, good outdoor spaces, and nice amenities. Bedroom spaces are large and well-separated (although several have multiple beds, each room feels like its in a separate space). Plenty of room in dining/kitchen/living room combo for everyone to get together; separate rec room downstair with a tv and game system so everyone doesn't HAVE to be together. We went in spring, and the back porches were amazing; there are two floors of porches plenty big enough for two separate groups to be having a conversation or activity and not overlap each other.

We rented this house for a yearly reunion of 12 male friends, and it was perfect for us. There was some boat noise (its right on the water, occasionally motor boats with stereos speed by), and I expect that would be more pronounced in summer and on holidays, but it didn't bother us.

Everything was labelled, which felt fussy when I first arrived, but was actually very helpful. House feels pleasantly lived in; everything is nice and well-maintained and nice, but not so pristine that you worry about it.

Renter was very pleasant and responsive to all questions.

The kitchen was fairly well stocked with cooking gear, including skillets and pots large enough to cook large meals. No pantry staples, which I think is normal I think for a rental house, but just noting as I like to know this ahead of time.

We would recommend and consider again for a future gathering.

Beautiful time

  • 5 of 5

This house is amazing! Big, spacious, yet cozy - gives you everything what you need for unforgettable time for you and your family/friends. What I loved the most - view from the deck and evening campfire <3.

Tonia and Hubert are great. The whole process to rent a property was very easy, thanks to them. No problems at all. It was a pleasure to be on this house, we will get back there for sure.
