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!!!

A nice place to stay

We enjoyed our stay on Lake Shangrila! The lake was beautiful while enjoying our coffee in the morning. It was a nice location, close to shopping. The owner was easy to contact and answered all questions. We had a peaceful stay!

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.

A week at Lake shangrila

  • 4 of 5

My family, consisting of myself, my husband, our 18 month old, and my parents came up for the week. There were plenty of bedrooms and beds, very clean. The pontoon boat was well kept and the two person kayak was a great plus! Tons of fish too! The lake is small but wasn't crowded at all. We enjoyed the sand bar in the middle of the lake where you can stand. The kitchen had plenty of pans and utensils for cooking. The patio was beautiful and had plenty of seating. Some stones were wobbly and fell out. Just needs a little mortar. The fire pit was great, but would be easier if there was wood provided. The biggest drawback was the furniture in the living room. Very old and broken. There was wood exposed in the arm chairs and was difficult with a new walking baby. New furniture would be my only suggestion. My family had a wonderful time overall and would love to come back!!!

Definitely worth it!

  • 4 of 5

We spent a long weekend with friends here. We'd definitely go back! We spent most of our time on the pontoon boat, near the fire pit, or on the back patio. A great price/quality ratio! And Will, the owner, was easy to work with.
