We really enjoyed our stay!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we sent our first inquiry, Maurice was very quick to reply and helpful in answering our questions. Everything was as expected when we arrived and we were very pleased with the layout of the home and proximity to the lake. Having both floors available for use was helpful for our large family. There were many indoor games and activities that our kids loved, but the dock and other water activities were the highlight for everyone. There is a little shallow sandy area for small kids to play in. The aquaglide was fun for all ages. There were tubes, beach chairs, sand toys, kayaks and other fun things for our family to use. There are two outdoor tables with chairs for people to sit and enjoy the view. There was plenty of space inside for us to spread out. It was peaceful and quiet. We absolutely loved the location, the home, the grounds and being on the lake. We would definitely recommend this home to others! The only thing we would have done differently is to realize sooner that towels and linens are not provided. Many of us were flying to get to this home and hadn't factored that in to the packing.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review. It was a pleasure having you stay at our lake home. We hope that you will return on your anniversary. When our guests make a request we deliver. Towels and linens are now provided for all of our guests. Packing for long distance travelers is no longer a problem. In fact, in September 2016, we had guests stay at our lake home who traveled all the way from China.

Regarding our stay at your lovely house.

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic week, it was everything we anticipated and more, the house itself was great.

There was enough room for all of us, our teenagers loved the game room downstairs, and our 9 year old grandson was thrilled to play on "the beach".

The teenagers and grownups had fun with the kayaks and floating dock, they were either in the water or on it.

We liked the fact that the house was located near so many attractions and places to shop.

Our stay was most pleasurable, we appreciated your concern for our comfort and your personal interactions.

We would most certainly recommend vacationing at your rent home.

Thank you.

2015 Family Vacation

  • 4 of 5

This was a very nice, relaxing, peaceful vacation. The owner was EXTREMELY quick to respond to all of our correspondence. The owner was more than accommodating to ensure all of our needs were met. Everyone had a great time, using the owner provided kayaks, tubes and other inflatables. The house had spectacular views and it was lovely waking up each morning and enjoying a cup of coffee while watching early morning boaters and jet skiers. It was a slow-paced week, away from the hustle and bustle of nearby tourist towns, though we did take advantage of driving to neighboring towns. My only suggestion would be putting a queen bed in the second bedroom and better lighting in the bedrooms.

A well-appointed house in a lovely setting

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed our visit. The owners were lovely and accommodating and did everything they could to enhance our stay. This house has every convenience you need for a comfortable vacation. The views of the lake are gorgeous. While the lake traffic was heavy on the weekend, it was very peaceful during the week and our children spent most of the week in the water. The house is proximate to many attractions and we took advantage of many of these including restaurants, pubs, arcades, shopping, cycling, golf, hiking, and movie theaters. We would recommend this house and would love to return!
