Guestbook comments from the owner

I think it's safe to say we had the best week ever. :)

The kids couldn't stay away from your beautiful lake. We are ocean people so it was such fun to be on the lake. We rented a boat or jet ski each day (Seth bonded with Dan from the rental place on the corner) and fished daily. You have a special house and we can't thank you enough for letting us use it. I know it's doubtful, but if you do decide to rent it next summer, please let me know - consider us a sure thing. :)

Your neighbors are lovely.
