Our family enjoyed this beautiful home!

  • 4 of 5

We had our annual family reunion at this wonderful home. We had 4 families ranging from 5 to 83. There was room for all of us. We enjoyed the house inside and out. We had breakfast together each day. Spent plenty of time playing in the water, soaking up the sun and enjoying a fire at night. The only issue we had was getting Mom (83) up and down the stairs. She was fine on the main level but it was tricky getting her down to the water to sit and watch the rest of the family. Our VRBO contact with also very helpful if we had any questions.
