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.

Great house! After the initial shock...

  • 3 of 5

The house hit all the marks we needed in a vacation away with a large family, lots of space with enough bedrooms to sleep all of us. The only issues we had with the house was the layout of a couple bedrooms and bathrooms. The attic- there is a bedroom in the main area with another bedroom that is behind closed doors. The attic bathroom door is also broken so we had the "if closed- occupied" rule. The garage floor (garage is a floor above the main floor, not an issue just very interesting) has 2 bedrooms. One bedroom is very normal and also has french doors leading into the master bedroom. The master bedroom is very... interesting. It's an open concept with includes the bedroom and bathroom in one room with no walls enclosing it. This is very misleading from the pictures. So you can see the person on the toilet or shower while walking around the master bedroom. The basement is large and has a bed in the middle if you need it. It's private if you make a rule at night that basement is off limits.

Hottub is in the boiler room... which was very scary.

Besides this, the house was fantastic. We made do with the "open" concept and everyone had a great time. Just wish the pictures showed the true layout of the house.

Owner's Response: The description and explanation of the rooms layout is on the front page of the listing. I am always happy to answer any questions. The boiler or electric rooms are not for guests use. Those are the storage rooms. There is NO hot tub in the boiler room only old tub secured to the wood frame, which is not for use since it is in boiler room. Next to the storage boiler room is small bathroom with shower, which is showed in the photos. I hope this clarifies a little bit.

Amazing get away for families or close friends

  • 5 of 5

All I can say is the views, the coziest, and location were perfect! This place was fully equipped with everything you could ever ask for in a lake house retreat including your very own private beach. Big enough to handle large groups but still remaining cozy and peaceful. I would recommend this lake house to any and everyone! I can't wait until my next trip to Wonder Lake. Thank you!

Great home for a family gathering

  • 5 of 5

The home was a great place for our family of 8 adults and 3 children to get together for a few days. The five bedrooms provided perfect space for everyone to have their privacy. There are lots of steps that would have been a problem for older people or smaller children but it wasn't a problem for us. There's a really nice bathroom with the master bedroom, but strangely it is completely open to the bedroom--there's no door. That limits accessibility for others.

air conditioning works great--cool air gets even to the very top floor, where there are kid-size beds that our grandchildren loved. The view of lake was beautiful, and the availability of two kayaks was appreciated. There were lots of different spaces where people could get together, including a large living area, dining area and outside balcony. Large kitchen was well-equipped. Furniture in the living could have been more comfortable--a little "dormy," even with cup holders. There's a pool table in the lower room, but it needs help-- a little worn, missing "6" ball, and cues have no felt tips. Owner was very responsive and nice to work with, but unfortunately the home is for sale, so I assume the ownership will change. The swimming beach down the lake is not very nice--too much duck poop.--probably because it's maintained by property owners--it's a private lake. House could have used more light--reading was challenging with the dim lighting in bed rooms. All in all, the less desirable aspects can be forgiven, considering the location, size, and facilities.
