About Ron

Country boys at heart with a great appreciation for the finer things in life! We love the feeling of being near the water....the wooded, rustic charm of our homes and the natural setting. Animals lovers....we share our land with our flock of heirloom breed laying hens, ducks, geese, a small herd of dairy goats and four llamas! (Visit the barnyard to meet them all! ) A perfect combination of spectacular water frontage, the best swimming area on the lake, private cove for kayakers of all ages, and plenty of room to play. Come see why we call it 'paradise'!

Ron purchased this estate in 2001

Why Ron chose Mabank

Quality accommodations for larger groups on the lake are extremely hard to find. In fact, we are told by many of our guests, that our homes were the only "package" of homes in our area for special events such as family reunions or larger gatherings.

What makes this estate unique

This set up is quite unique with four homes, along with 1 guest house, all adjacent to each other to accommodate groups of various sizes. We're told our homes offer the perfect balance of spaces to gather the group together, but with plenty of space to slip away for quiet time and to relax. There's something for everyone......from great kitchens and grilling areas for the cooks, room to play, swim, kayak, volleyball, horseshoes for the active folks, critters to visit for the animal lovers, and spectacular views of wildlife and sunsets.

This was a really wonderful place and even nicer than I anticipated. So much attention to detail and the comfort of the guests. It couldn't have been more perfect for our family reunion. My cousin's husband called it a home run, and everyone agreed. Picturesque setting, gracious and attentive hosts, kayaks, horseshoes, and many other amenities to suit everyone in our party. There were eight grandchildren between the ages of 14 and 3, and part of what made it such a success was that, no matter what the age, on some level, there was something that made it fun for everyone. I HIGHLY recommend this property. You won't be disappointed.

Thank you Ron and Michael

My wife and I rented all five properties for our families to gather for our wedding which we hosted right there in the back yard right on the lake. It was the perfect environment for an incredible weekend. We were able to comfortably fit 40+ family members close together on a beautiful forested inlet right on the water. To top off the perfect location, Ron and Michael are the two most hospitable people we have ever met. They went above and beyond to make sure our stay was everything we could have imagined. They even brought us fresh foods from their garden and markets. It was incredible to watch our two families come together in a beautiful place and become one family. Thank you so much all you did for us,

Sam and Rebecca

This was a perfect place for our family reunion with 33 people. Each house was so unique and decorated beautifully. There are so many things that made it perfect: farm fresh eggs every morning, comfortable beds with wonderful linens, very well equipped kitchens, a swimming area by the lake that was perfect for everyone, kayaks for kids and adults,a beautiful, cool, and shady spot by the lake for watching the swimmers, it would be easy to go on and on. But one of the best things was our hosts desire to make everything perfect for our family reunion. They went above and beyond to make us happy and very comfortable. Hopefully more family be with us next year, there is plenty of room. Can't wait!!! Thanks so much, Michael & Ron for helping us make more unforgettable family memories. You guys are the best!

Best Family Reunion, Ever!

  • 5 of 5

It's not easy finding a place large enough for 30+ people, ranging in ages from 87-1, but finding a place like this that also has activities to keep everyone entertained and comfortable is a God send! Look no further, you've found it! We just returned from our 3 day family reunion here and are already planning to return next year! The owners, Michael and Ron, have created a place that has it all!! Each of the houses are filled with so much character and amenities, you immediately feel at home. The only thing you need to bring is some food and laughter! The houses are equipped with more than you can imagine! Fresh eggs, fruit bowls, waffle mix, (loved the double waffle maker!), breakfast bars, beach towels, the list goes on! From milking the goats, to kayaking, to relaxing by the lake in the shade, to just hanging out in the protected waters of the cove, to making s'mores (provided!) in the evening, our whole family was relaxed and many memories were made! We have never stayed in a rental where there has been this much attention to detail. The owners truly have a gift! The linens and beds were so comfortable, even the futons are not your typical hard as a rock couch bed! The grounds are very shaded and there are relaxation spots all over! Thank you, Ron and Michael, for sharing this with us! Next year, we want you to join us and the young adults can teach you the game they were playing! 😀
