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).

nice quiet family retreat

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time here. The lake was in easy walking distance. Home is clean,spacious and secluded . Kids loved seeing the wild turkeys and deer on the property. Only improvement would be to add a/c to the house.

Great family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Clean and well designed and equipped home with easy access to beach/lake. Great restaurants within minutes, beautiful parks not much further of a drive. Loved to walk local area and see the wildlife and lake views. Even my college aged kids had a great time.

Great vacation. The whole family loved the house.

  • 5 of 5

Upon arrival, the house was clean and kitchen was organized and bedrooms / bathrooms were supplied with towels and sheets.

The kids loved the ability to spread out in their own rooms or the large family room.

We enjoyed the outdoors and the quick walk to the water and beach.

We had a question for the owner, which he answered very promptly.

Overall, I would stay here again and recommend to anyone else as well.

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
