                                                            Something for everyone

                                                            Sharon D.

                                                            We rented the Lake House for just a weekend to gather our immediate family together for an extended family wedding in nearby Fredericksburg. Our group included people aged 7 weeks to almost 70 years, and we found things to do that suited every one of us: the paddle boat, canoe and sailboat were especially popular, even the swim noodles got use in dry-land "sword fights" (the weather was too cool for swimming), and nature walks led to happy discoveries of local flora and fauna (watch out for the greedy swan) . The location is lovely and the house far more equipped than I expected, with many items (including paper products & laundry soap) left behind by others. My only complaint is that our stay was so brief!

                                                            Awesome week at Lake of the Woods


                                                            We had a great week. The house was everything that we had hoped for; on the water, very clean and the beds were very comfortable. Went horseback riding, canoeing and swimming in the lake.

                                                            While neither was a deal breaker, 1. there were a lot of spiders and spider webs and 2. we may have missed it in the house rules binder, but we didn't realize the recyclables had to be separated.

                                                            Upstyle camping on Lake of the Woods

                                                            Jonna A.

                                                            Beautiful spot to relax and play. Our group particularly enjoyed the ping pong competition. On Friday we took guest children out on the paddle boat. It was a great hit. The kitchen was functional for several cooks and guests. 14 of us were able to sit for the one major dinner we prepared. Nice sized tables inside and out. We were very grateful to find a place not far from my sister's. Our adult grand kids want to return. Thanks for sharing!

                                                            Awesome Lake weekend

                                                            Chris M.

                                                            Had a great family weekend being RIGHT on the lake!!!! The house was clean and everything was as promised. Rita was very responsive with emails and provided detailed directions for everything we needed. We spent the majority of our time swimming and the whole family loved it. We will be back!!

                                                            A little piece of heaven.

                                                            Cynthia F.

                                                            We had the most wonderful time at this house! The bedrooms are comfy and the basement is large and fun (ping pong and billiards!), but the water is the reason that we plan to return again and again. The lake itself is just gorgeous with beautiful woods all around. The house is feet from the water, and the dock is perfection. Our kids spent hours fishing and diving off the dock (about 10 feet deep waters with no mucky bottom to touch). The house has an abundance of noodles and rafts and we spent literally all day, every day in the wonderful, refreshing water. We paddle-boated, canoed, and had just a perfectly peaceful, fantastic family stay!

                                                            Needs maintained

                                                            audra c.

                                                            Nice place, great lake but.....place needs a good cleaning. Also my brother in law had to power wash the canoe and the paddle boat and scrub the ladder before they could even be used. And forget the sailboat as it is ancient. For the price paid you would think that the owners would have all that ready and useable when you arrive. Stuff left in the washer, windows and around door knobs and banister filthy and all the furniture covers need washing as well. Would have been a perfect stay for me if it weren't for all that. Kids loved swimming in the lake and the country club food is awesome!

                                                            Owner's Response:

                                                            I am glad you liked the house and the lake. If you find that the house is not cleaned to your satisfaction we would have sent the cleaners back to take care of any of your concerns free of charge. We notified the cleaners and the issues are corrected. The outdoor boating equipment are not cleaned or maintained as we do not charge guest to use any of the boats and they are there for your convenience if you choose to use them. I am glad you had a good vacation and found the house and lake enjoyable.
