5 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, Private Pool & Lake - A Luxurious Getaway
About Donna Long
I started out at 15 being a hostess at a restaurant, for college I attended a travel academy, soon after had 2 beautiful bright children, ran a mechanical contracting company with my husband for 24 years, married 26 years to be widowed at a early age, and now once again a hostess to my own properties that I share with Wonderful Vacationers from all over the world:-)
Donna Long purchased this Estate in 1995
Why Donna Long chose Union
This property is the home where my husband and I raised our children, when they grew up and moved out, I saw that we were not here as much and it's soooo beautiful to leave unattended, so I asked my husband if he would mind if we shared it with others. He agreed and the first year the response was soooo good that after I lost my husband, it's what kept me going:-) Everyone that stays here loves it, and many return year after year!!!
What makes this Estate unique
As soon as your drive down the driveway between the manicured fields to the woods by the lake and then approach the home, you feel a sense of calmness. When you enter the foyer into the great room you then receive the WOW factor and the view is absolutely fabulous! Different words everyday can describe the view and the feeling, well, it's sometimes indescribable!! I look forward to providing this accommodation that you will long remember:-)
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Yearly Family Vacation
We enjoyed our vacation rental very much. The pool and lake was great!
Upon arriving Donna gave us a quick walk through of the beautiful property. There's a lot to take in but she assured us if we had any questions to not hesitate and call or text her. Which we did and she promptly answered and walked us through them. We had 3 families w/ kids ranging from 14-22. No boredom here. Between the kayaking, canoeing, paddle boats, fishing, hitting floating golf balls into the lake, swimming in the pool and lake, I could go on but you get the point. Weather cooperated and was perfect for enjoying everything the property had to offer. One day it lightly rained for about an hour but not enough to pull the kids out of the pool. Another day when it rained for a few hours we just went up to the extra building and played pool and set up some bean bags inside. The rain didn't slow us down a bit. Fishing was good. As Donna claims-"you WILL catch fish". Definitely did not disappoint. Thank you Donna for sharing your home and property. We have a week full of photos and memories to enjoy! Until next time...Thanks Tom
The Perfect Setting for Our Family Reunion
This property afforded our family the perfect setting for our family reunion. The setting is absolutely beautiful and is totally private. Our grandchildren took full opportunity of the lake and pool and we had a great time exploring the 50 acres of woods and fields. The house fully accommodated our large group and met all of our needs. Donna, the property owner, was most helpful and was flexible regarding our check-in and check-out times.
We vacationed for a long weekend with our family and really enjoyed this spacious property. Having a bigger better-working kitchen would have made things easier for my big group. In all other areas, we had plenty of room to spread out.
Great location for a medium to large size group. Beautiful property.
Beautiful property and home with great amenities. We had a wonderful time staying here!
Donna was an awesome host and the house, pool and property was amazing.
