Having a lake house retreat just 1 hour from my home has been wonderful for my family over these last 15 years

I truly recommend this place for families

  • 5 of 5

I truly recommend this place for families who want to spend a relaxing time.

We had a great time at the lake house! The small community around is so quiet. Kayaking and swimming was fun !

The stores aren't too far by car, the house is well equipped for bbq and preparing meals.

We were 11 people but didn't feel that it. They were a lot of spaces in the family room and outside to relax and enjoy a good time for our 3 families.

Inside table is for 6 though, not for 12 people. Dinner time could have been tricky if everyone wanted to seat around the table. We had the teens having dinner before the adults and it went well.

The bedrooms are great, beds are comfortable. We definitely enjoyed our stay!

Relaxing weekend

  • 3 of 5

The home was comfortable and had all of the amenities you would need for a relaxing weekend. We didn't get a chance to enjoy the boat, but maybe next time.

Peaceful get away with breathtaking views...

  • 5 of 5

We throughly enjoyed our get away to this lovely lakehouse. The views are incredible! We cooked out with the family, had game night, relaxed out back and couldn't of asked for anything more. We loved falling asleep with the windows open as the sound of leaves rustling were so calming. Then to awake to the view of calm waters glistening with ducks passing by. It was a piece of heaven to us with views out almost every window. This was our first trip with our 6 month old and it was definitely a memorable one!!!

Shangrila!

  • 5 of 5

The property exceeded our expectations! Will was a pleasure to work with, timely, honest, and responsive. The location is easy to find and well situated to take in the local sights. More importantly it is tranquil and remote, a nice getaway.
