Great location & home for large families

  • 5 of 5

This home easily accommodated our family of 11 including adults, children and grandma. 3 bedrooms (master with king bed, 2nd bedrm with a queen & 3rd w/ 2 queens), 3 full baths plus loft with a sofa bed and large LR with enough empty space to fit 3 air mattresses.

The kitchen is spacious with large island with seating for 5 around the island and dining table right next to it with seating for 6.

We spent our time outside on the huge desk with large sectional seating area with cushions.Also a small 2nd seating set with a little coffee table. We ate outside on 2nd deck on a large dining table with umbrella. There's a gas grill. There was also a nice in-ground firepit w/ 6 chairs. Great spot to end the day and make S'mores. Tons of places to pick up wood in the neighborhood. You'll see people with wood to sell at the end of their driveways.

We brought our kayaks and left them in the large private dock area. The house included use of a 4 person paddleboat that we kept tied up at the dock. There's also a swimming platform.

The water is shallow enough to walk out about 30 feet from shore but wear water shoes it's a little rough with all the weeds right near the dock. Bring your own floating devices.

There was a ball toss game and horshoes for use. Also there were 4 bicycles in the garage we used. There's a bball hoop in the driveway so bring your bball if you want to play. We brought cards and games to play. We didn't find any there.

The kitchen is well stocked with utensils, plates and glasses including plenty of wine glasses. The only thing we could have used for cooking was a spatula, large stirring/serving spoons and maybe another frying pan or griddle pan for making pancakes, sausage and eggs all at once we had to rotate using the 2 fry pans. Only one pan to boil some corn and pasta so we had to make 2 batches. There was an ice maker on the counter which was awesome. Toaster, coffee pot, even a crockpot available. Plenty of serving platters and bowls.

Washer/dryer there so you can wash towels, etc just bring your detergent.

Wifi and you can watch Netflix (we didn't turn the tvs on much) but no cable. TVs in LR, loft and master. Also fireplace in LR. There's no AC but there were a few fans to use. Nice evening breezes kept it cool enough but we used fans too.

Great quiet location, 10 min from grocery store and 2 min to little store. Jerry the owner's father came by and took us on a long tour of the lake our 1st day. He's was so nice!

Excellent Lake House

  • 5 of 5

This beautifully decorated home accommodated two families and grandma quite well for a nice and relaxing vacation. This home is very spacious and has excellent views of the lake from almost every room. We were greeted with a bottle of wine and given a boat tour of the lake the next day. The managers of the property were just awesome; very friendly and checked to make sure we had everything we needed. We had a great time making memories and would definitely stay here again!
