We created some unforgettable memories with our children and grandchildren in your beautiful home. The lake is great for swimming, fishing, and the sunsets were gorgeous. It was truly a blessing to stay here! Thank you.

We had a wonderful week. Greg and Shelly are awesome to rent from. They have furnished their home so well and have anticipated anything that is needed for the week. Our family felt so comfortable and at home here. Our grandkids loved the dock and jumping into the lake. They also had lots of fun fishing.

Best place to vacation EVER!

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have vacationed in this home. We rate this home 5 stars! Everything from the kitchen stocked with essentials to the two living rooms to the two master bedrooms to the beautiful sandy bottom lake is just perfect! There is a great patio overlooking the water with a huge grill. We cooked and ate many dinners and lunches there. We highly recommend this home. The hosts, Greg and Shelly are the best also. So nice and caring about how you are enjoying their home. Could not ask for more in the home or in the hosts. Do yourself a favor and treat yourself to a vacation in this home!

Ideal Family Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

The online pictures don't do justice to this spacious home. We spent a wonderful week with our children and grandchildren. All agreed we want to return again next summer. The home is equipped with every amenity you could ask for. Only a short drive into town. The views are fantastic. We would absolutely recommend this rental. Terry A.
