Fantastic for large groups
We rent this place for the long weekend for a retreat with 12 coworkers. The house is spacious, comfortable and has great views, the kitchen was well equipped. The property has privileged access to the lake and has its own kayaks.
The house is full of stairs so it’s not great for toddlers and small kids.
Thank you so much Erich, It was such a lovely pleasure to have you all come to enjoy the weekend together.
With the topography of the location of this house, it does have stairs to access the dock. We will be sure to let future guests with small children to know clearly about this. Wishing you all the best
Great family vacay
The property is beautiful with multiple decks and dock to enjoy the Lakeview. Very well equipped with kayaks and lifejackets , beach towels, and kitchen ware. Owner responded quickly. Highly recommend. Fit our family of 15 with the suite, but to honest, could have fit in the main house but wasn't an option. Would have been more relaxing if didn't have to worry about laundry washing and drying (more than I have had to do for other stays--took half a day and overnight) but owner was forgiving if not finished and due to tight turn around time.
Thank you so much Cindy! We are so happy to hear you enjoyed your time on the Lake and the kids enjoyed the dock and kayaks. It was so nice to have your large group of family and friends stay with us at Lakeview Homes.
In regards to the home and our maximum occupancy, unfortunately we do not allow more guests than what we have proper sleeping for, hence with your large group of 15 guests, the home and suite were required, as the house only sleeps 12.
I am sorry the towels took such a long time laundering, our expectation is certainly not to wash all linens, we only ask for some assistance, as with accepting such large groups, and a turn around on the same day, it is impossible to finish all laundering for linens on the 9 beds and towels for multiple days for so many people despite having two sets of laundry machines. We were so very grateful for you having the towels washed and dried, it was so incredibly helpful to the staff. Thanks again and hope to have you come visit some other time at that home or the Lakeview Home (63792) across the lake. Happy Summer 2019 Karin
Beautiful vacation spot
Beautiful spacious home with all of the amenities needed for our family vacation. The house was immaculate and included a private dock with kayaking and swimming. Karen was very good to work with and answered all of our emails texts quickly. It was an excellent home to stay in!
Thank you Judy, it was such a delight having your family stay with us. We are so happy to hear you enjoyed the dock and kayaks, always a fun summer activity. You were perfect guests come back anytime. Karin
We had great time staying at Karin's property. We were 7 adults and 4 kids. The weather was not co-operating, but the house was so big and full of fun things to do, that we didn't miss the sunshine. The property was extremely clean and pantry had all the basics (in case you forgot to buy something). Thank you for having us over.
Tanya, thank you so very much for coming with your family. Glad you enjoyed your time and all the fun things to do. Hope to see you again. Happy Summer
This as one of the best place I stayed in.
I enjoyed everything about the house, the lake, its location and proximity to the town. It was a comfortable place and we had plenty of space for everyone. The people welcomed us with open arms. Thank you to the staff that made our holiday a success.
Thank you Denis, it was so nice having you join us. We are so glad you felt so welcomed, we like to take great pleasure in our hosting experience. Hope to see you all again on your next trip to the Island.
Nice location and clean house
The house has excellent view, very spacious, clean through out.
Kitchen was equipped with everything. View from Kitchen, dining, living and deck is beautiful. Quiet neibourhood. We used Canoe and it was a lot of fun.
Access to lake is just going down the stairs. It was great place to stay.
We enjoyed very much.
Thank you so very much. It was such a pleasure to have you all stay. Greatly appreciate what excellent guests you were too! We hope to have the pleasure to have you stay again in the future! :)
