Great Time!!

  • 5 of 5

We really liked the Old Nest Vacation house. Great view of the lake right out the front door and walking distance to town. We will definitely rent again.

Great weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great weekend at The Old Nest! Our friends went up for a reunion trip, and it was the perfect spot for us! The view of the lake is breath taking. Amanda was very quick to respond to any of my questions. We are hoping to make this an annual tradition. Highly recommend!

It was so good for us last year, that we booked it immediately for this year....

  • 5 of 5

And we love it so much, we will book it again for next year as soon as I get our weekend nailed down. We love the house, the space, and the location. Love working with the owners, and have not had a single issue. Been coming to Kelleys for almost 30 years and this is the best place we have stayed. We can't wait for next year!

Perfect family home

  • 5 of 5

This was a great family vacation home- nice old house with lots of character, and lots of extras here. The kids enjoyed the nice back yard for playing catch, and the invitation to hike the mowed trails behind the house, a fun evening adventure. The adults enjoyed the front porch with the perfect lake view.
