Thank you for sharing your beautiful home this weekend. Your house is breathtaking. The photos on the website do not give the house the credit due. I am so happy to have found this diamond. I will be back soon. Have a blessed week.

Wonderful place, well kept and good location

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time during our stay.

Property was exactly as described. Well maintained, the owner met us at the property to explain everything.

Right on the lake, kids could do carp fishing right from the property.

They had plenty of pots and pans, worked well for light cooking we did, in addition to the out door grilling.

The nearby Inks sate park is fun for trekking.

Would love to go back someday.
