Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you very much for the use of your house. We had a great time. The location was the best for a get-a-way from anything but especially the city.

The living room was decorated beautifully and sofas were very comfortable.

We especially loved the TV and the surround sound with the extended channels and music.

And the personal touches like the card from Mom saying congratulations!!

We only used the one bedroom and closed off the rest of the house so that the dogs could not roam freely (thus being less that I would have to clean).

The Big Bed was my favorite and I loved the way it was dressed.

The kitchen was very accommodating and it was great to have such a clean refrigerator with lots of ice.

We eat-out during our stay so we didn't use the kitchen (other than storing cold beverages).

Wonderful Trip!!

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from the best vacation we ever had. The house was roomy and very clean, and well taken care of. We hand fed the deer from the back deck. The bedrooms were big and comfy!! We can't wait to come back next year!!

Great Family Trip

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful family trip here. Spent all day on the lake then came home and cooked a big family dinner on the grill both nights. We parked at the private beach rather than walk so we didn't have to carry anything, but it really is a super short walk. Definitely bring your floats for the lake. The kids spent whole time playing on our ours. Great time!

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

Great Location. House was clean. We had the things we needed to cook meals. Refrigerator is not very cold. We had to use ice and our cooler to keep beer cold instead of using the frig.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the favorable review and comments; we are glad to hear you enjoyed the cleanliness of our home as well as the location and stock level of kitchen. This is first we have heard of any issue with the refrigerator thus we had it checked for proper venting, coils cleaned, etc. All is now working fine and temperatures are able to be driven down to 37 degrees. Thank tryouts for bringing this to our attention. Thanks Greg

Comfortable, cozy and convenient

  • 4 of 5

The property was terrific and well located. We rented the house for wine fest 2017 and loved the short walk to a private beach on Lake Harmony. The walk to the festivities was a little longer, maybe 20 min total but all in all convenient. Without A/C the heat could be a concern as could allergies depending on the time of year.

Overall we enjoyed our stay, would return, and would definitely recommend the property to others.

Very Nice Home - Enjoyed our Stay!

  • 5 of 5


We loved staying at the house. We had only two (2) small complaints. We understood it was a no smoking facility. However, allowing people to smoke outside still leaves a smoke smell in the house. The couch in the living room smelled of smoke.

The other minor issue was the grill - we had to clean it before we could use it. So, whoever used it before did not do a very good job of cleaning it after they used it.

The house as very comfortable and pleasant otherwise. I might suggest that you label the light switches for the convenience of future guests it will make it easier to figure out what switch goes to what light. Thank you for your hospitality.
