Excellent home to stay and beautiful location on the Lake

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed here from 08/30/17-9/4/17 and had a wonderful time. David meet us the day of arrival and was just a wonderful person to chat with and he showed us around the home and explained everything. Gave us good tips on where to eat and visit. David and Rhonda's home is so beautiful and truly a fantastic place to stay and relax and enjoy the lake and do fishing or tour the lake in the kayaks provided at the house. My family and I have been here twice now and would love to go back again next year. Thank you David and Rhonda for a wonderful place to stay. Hope to see you next year. The McManus family.

Beautiful home, beautiful views, outstanding hosts!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at Rhonda and Daves beautiful home. They are so accommodating and provide you with almost everything you need. The house has plenty of room for everyone to spread out and have their own space, including bathrooms, but also provides great gathering spaces as well. Being able to bring our furry family member is a great plus as well and Dave was kind enough to even show us how to convert the deck into a dog pen! The lake is beautiful and peaceful, perfect for kayaking, fishing and just sitting back and relaxing while enjoying the view. Thank you for a great week of unplugging and reconnecting with what's really important!

Lakeside luxury

From soaking in an oversized tub to kayaking across the water, this lakeside retreat has it all. Expansive decks from every floor take advantage of the beautiful views. Dave and Rhonda are simply lovely and have thought of every convenience.

Relaxing break with the family - great to be able to bring our dog!

  • 5 of 5

We had a very relaxing weekend in DeRuyter. It was so very nice to wake up and sit in quiet with a cup of tea and watch the lake and birds. It wasn't very noisy on the weekends either. If you want a quiet place to sit and unwind, this is your house.

Thanks to Dave for all of the text replies regarding places to go. We purchased some good vegetables at the Farmer's Market on Saturday. You do have to drive a bit to go out dinner but the drive is easy and all the places we ate were fantastic! Empire Brewery, Owera Vineyard, Dave's Diner, and Seven Stone Steps are recommended by us.

You feel welcomed in the home the minute you meet Dave. He even had a water bowl ready to go for our dog. The lake is so calm. It was perfect for kayaking. Very easy entrance point for the lake at the end of the lawn.

We highly recommend this to others.

We had a wonderful stay at this home in DeRuyter! David and Rhonda were exceptional hosts, checking in on us and making sure we had everything we needed. The surrounding towns were amazing and the lake was private and beautiful! We had such a relaxing and enjoyable stay and would recommend it to anyone who wanted a quiet, family getaway! We brought our dogs too and they absolutely loved swimming and being with us on vacation! Thanks for such a great week! We hope to visit again real soon!

Amazing house on the lake with all amenities.

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of three families with kids. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Rhoda and David's house. David was right there to greet us when we entered. He showed us the whole house and all the facilities, including the kayaks that we could use during our stay. The house was very nice and was perfect for all of us. We had a blast the next few days, enjoyed the local produce, our morning and evening walks, kayaking and above all the pets had fun too. We would love to go back to the house and would highly recommend it to anyone going to that area.
