Gorgeous view of the lake!

This lake house was everything that we wanted for our getaway with our group of friends. Love the house and the spectacular view of the lake. We will definitely be back.

A Fantastic Getaway

  • 5 of 5

In the last 15 years my family and I have stayed in many rentals throughout the state of Ohio. This property was definitely one of the best. The house is a warm and inviting place with plenty of room for larger groups to spread out a bit. The bedrooms were comfortable and the three bathrooms were plenty for our group of 10. The family room and living room were great places to relax with very comfortable furniture. The house and grounds are taken care of very well. Plenty of places to sit outside and enjoy the wonderful scenery. There is a trail down to the lake and from there you can pick-up the Buckeye Trail if you want to do some exploring. A very reasonable price for what you are getting and this adds up to a great value.

I told my family that this is a place that we might need to return for another visit. We have not said that about too many other places.

Thanks Jeff and Suzanne!

Very charming well stocked home in a beautiful setting.

  • 4 of 5

Our families got together for a reunion and weekend away. With all ages represented everyone had a great time! There was plenty of room for 7 adults and 4 kids to spread out and gather. Over the course of the weekend we hiked, fished, had a fire/roasted marshmallows, grilled, enjoyed the expansive deck and observed the butterflies! We also ventured to Smoke Rise Ranch to do some horseback riding- great experience. The home and grounds are meticulously kept and the owners provide nearly everything you'd need to enjoy your stay including chairs for the outdoor fire ring. Bring wood though! Four stars give due to minor issues including a sticky sliding bedroom door but we'd still highly reccommend and stay again!

Very nice house, was a very enjoyable stay

  • 4 of 5

We've stayed at a number of larger rental homes, and this one ended up ranking fairly high on our list. Pretty much everything was as expected. There was plenty of equipment available in the kitchen, the space was clean and comfortable, and the rooms were just what we needed.

There were aspects that were antiquated, but everything functioned well. The light switch list was useful.

We didn't take advantage of the outdoor facilities very much, but could have. The screened-in porch was awesome. We sat out there for hours.

We were a little concerned that we had gone through the wrong way when going through the neighborhood, but once we got down the driveway, we knew we were in the right place. The driveway is a bit steep... FYI

Wonderful retreat!

  • 5 of 5

The house was fantastic. The hosts made our stay comfortable and enjoyable. Jeff supplied lots of information leading up to our stay that made preparing for our trip and navigating to the home easy. The house had more than enough to meet all our needs over the weekend. There were plenty of towels, sheets, pillows - and the kitchen had all the cooking supplies (pans, baking sheets etc) that we could possibly need. Would highly recommend for your large group retreat.
