Great end of summer get away

  • 5 of 5

A group of close friends wanted to have an end of summer get away. We wanted a place that was on the lake, had a boat dock and plenty of room for all of us. This place had everything we needed and more! We absolutely loved it! Great location, views and extremely accommodating. We even saw bald eagles! Kathy the property manager went out of her way to make sure we had everything we needed. Thanks for lending us some tools! We will definitely be coming back. Hopefully for a longer stay next time.

Lovely view of lake. Enjoyable for kids & adults

  • 5 of 5

Just the right spot for a memorable family gathering. Great layout with beautiful sunsets. Enjoyed swimming, fishing off the dock & of course sitting around the fire roasting marshmallows.

Kathy made sure our needs were met. My granddaughter left her beloved stuffed animal behind & Kathy had it in the mail next day!

great VRBO on Cedar Creek Lake

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented this for a long weekend with our 2 adult children, a daughter in law and 2 adorable grandchildren. It was just perfect! Great location, nice big rooms to spread out and a great place to catch up with family. We all love to cook and she had plenty of cookware to fit our needs.

Kathy, the owner, was so friendly and welcoming and made us feel quite at home. Everyone had a great time and we would love to come back again.
