About Mike

I built this home and completed it in 2010. My vision was to create a rustic retreat that had that Aspen lodge feeling.

Mike purchased this house in 2000

What makes this house unique

The home sits on a quiet cove that allows easy access of docking your boat, calm water cove which is great for swimming, rafting, paddle boating, or just floating in tubes.

Enjoyed this place so much, we returned a second year for family reunion.

  • 5 of 5

I have rented in several states through VRBO since 2009. We have rented three other properties in the Monticello area, and Mike is, without a doubt, the most gracious host we have ever had. When the coffee pot failed on our first morning, Mike had a new one at the house that afternoon, even though there was a Keurig (with pods!) there as well. His lake home is spacious, tasteful, well maintained, and appointed with items of necessity and a lot of extras. The beds are comfortable, and the bathrooms much nicer than typically found in a resort rental. The kitchen contains everything needed to prepare meals for a large group, with a roomy adjacent pantry closet for grocery storage, and an extra refrigerator and freezer in the garage.

We are a large family with folks from infant to 85, and everyone enjoyed the indoor and outdoor spaces. The upstairs deck, and downstairs porch assure that even rainy days won't ruin the fun. There are plenty of spaces to be together, or to get away for a bit of tranquility, if desired. The play set on property was a hit with the 5-8 year olds, and the kayaks and dock area were popular with the college aged kids. The firepit was used every night by the whole crowd, with music and singing (which the neighbors were gracious about.)

We plan to return again next year, as the vote was hearty and unanimous, that Mike's home is superior in every way!

Fantastic Family Reunion in a Gorgeous Home

This beautiful home had a cabin-like feel in Monticello. It had everything we could have asked for and the owner was great to work with.

Family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was absolutely perfect even though the weather wasn't! Perfect amount of bedrooms, linens, seating space both inside and out for our family of 17 (10 adults and 7 young children)! Loved the wraparound deck and dock by the lake.... Many memories made enjoying the supplied paddle boat, lily pad and kayaks! Mike was the BEST! Ready to go back!

Spacious, well appointed lake home - great for extended families

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week with extended family at this home, and can highly recommend this rental. The home was very well furnished with comfortable bedding, and all the kitchen items we needed for a week of cooking. The kayaks and paddleboat were much appreciated, and the large lakefront lawn was perfect for the provided bean bag toss game. The rural area was great for extended walks and the three car garage meant parking was no problem for all the cars. We especially enjoyed the large lake facing deck for our evening meals. The owner was ready to assist with any issues or questions. It was an excellent choice for our extended family gathering of adults and children. Thanks for a great week !

We had a great time....

Staying at this HomeAway location was just perfect for our family reunion...the only negative was that we could not stay longer! Great accommodations all the way around; highly recommend it.
