Beautiful setting, lots of bed - great for a group outing

  • 4 of 5

This house was good, not great. The house had many beds which was really nice! One floor had a LARGE bedroom that was FULLY open to the bathroom, including the toilet. Not an ideal situation. The table was very large and accommodated our group easily. Overall, our team had a very good time.

Family Friendly

  • 5 of 5

This is a spacious and well appointed home suitable for a large family vacation. Our kids and grandkids loved the lake and also enjoyed the deck and the pool table. We had a bonfire which was also fun. Added bonus, the Wonder Lake ski team practice area is nearby so we got wonderful entertainment watching this talented group practice! A word of caution...there are three levels in this house and a lot of steps to the water so be prepared to get plenty of exercise. The owner was very accommodating of our needs and was very easy to work with. Highly recommend.

Wonderful location. Beautiful setting. Close to shop and dine. Nice amnenities.

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 14 (10 adults, 4 children) stayed comfortably, right on the lake; beautiful. The property was clean and well furnished with plenty of room to spread out.

The concerns regarding the layout from other reviewers were noticeable, privacy in some rooms and a bathroom were awkward but we made it work for a week. Another thing to consider if you have a houseful, is that voices carry throughout the upstairs levels and early risers can be heard in the basement, one step at a time from above on the main floor. Once again, manageable for a week, for most.

The neighbors are not happy with the fact they have different people coming and going regularly and some rudely forthcoming about their displeasure providing an awkwardness.

The property manager was easy to work with, replied to questions promptly.

One issue not mentioned anywhere, was a foul smell in the kitchen area, I mean nasty, make you feel ill smell. Once we were able to locate (above cabinets) a liquid fly trap, we removed to outside; would never have tolerated it for a week!

Enjoyed the location, nice shopping areas nearby and quality dining options near as well.

Beautiful house!

  • 5 of 5

This house is so beautiful that fit our needs. We were thinking of staying in a hotel just to be away for the weekend before we found this wonderful house. It is so perfect that accommodate 7 adults. We enjoyed our stay for our fellowship, bible reading and bible trivia and sharing and praying. The dining table is so big that is perfect for us for us to sit all together and for fun. The owner, Mika, was so nice and very accommodating, response so fast if we look for something. Thank you so much Mika,. We will surely recommend your place.
