Great family vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place for a family vacation. Everything was provided and then some. It really was a home away from home! Weather was perfect and enough for everyone to do. There are many things to do close by if relaxing and playing in the sun are not enough for everyone. We all appreciated the extras, like lots of toys for kids to play with. Being able to rent the pontoon was great and it was great to have Dave next door for any questions we had. Also appreciated the free tomatoes! Thank you!

Brian was great to work with. The place was perfect for our family reunion. It was cozy and clean and a lot of fun stuff to do. His brother Dave lives next door and he was so helpful. We can't wait until our next visit.
