What makes this house unique

Guestbook Comment

  • 5 of 5

the house was everything you could want; plenty of dishes, spices, extra's

such as salad dressing, condiments,coffee, etc. beautiful view and very relaxing. lake was wonderful and house accessible from town.plenty of extra room to spread out. the deck is a delightful place to spend a few hours morning and night. you "will" get plenty of excercise going up and down the steps though...so don't bring to many heavy suitcases... pack light and use the washer/dryer. had a great time and would do it again.

Nice older home close to the water

  • 4 of 5

Owner was very easy to work with and grill had propane for outdoor cooking. So many of the houses we have rented promise propane but tank is always empty. House is well suited for teens and adults but not younger kids. Parking is very limited especially if you have a boat. Overall, house is just as it appears in the pictures. Decks were very nice.

Everything you need

  • 4 of 5

My family very much enjoyed staying in this house. It had plenty of space for us, there was absolutely nothing we needed besides food! It's in a great location and views are beautiful,and the cove was perfect for the kids to jump off the dock and swim. We rented a boat at a nearby marina and spent the day on the lake. It is gorgeous!! The only concern I had was the condition of the stairs going down to the lake, as long as you take your time you should be just fine. I'll definitely be back!!

Great place to get away and relax!

  • 4 of 5

Overall we had a great stay! The house had so much to do. We spent our evenings playing cards and games. The kids enjoyed the fact that they each had a place to "hide out" for a bit without us. Needless to say, there's plenty of room to spread out. We rented a boat at a Marina nearby and spent a day on the lake; it was great! The water wasn't too busy and had easy access to the house for lunch/restroom. The house is a little dated, but not different than most other lake homes we've stayed in. On the surface, it appeared to be tidy and neat, but could use a good cleaning.
