About owner/property manager

We built this property in 2006 as a great get-away for world class snow skiing, and summer activities like swimming, boating, fishing, hiking, bike riding, rock climbing, etc.

It is great for kids, they love the beach and riding their bikes on safe, minimum traffic roadways.

Fit our needs for a relaxing getaway

  • 5 of 5

This studio apartment on the first floor looks out on a small forest, surrounded by other homes in Serene Lakes. A welcoming setting, well stocked kitchen for a brief getaway, and easy proximity to the lake for a hike around it. Best for couples wanting a private trip out of town.

I had to cancel my reservation the day of arrival due to a sick dog......, However, all correspondences with the owner Greg were prompt, helpful and understanding. I will try again this Summer to make it work as the place looks beautiful!

Studio in the snow

  • 4 of 5

This is a cute Ikea-style studio underneath the main house. It is cozy and comfortable. We hit a huge snow storm and the heater was not working on arrival, which created a frigid environment. Greg, the owner, borrowed a space heater from a neighbor and that fixed the problem. He also helped us get our truck towed out of the driveway by a snowplow on Sunday. The house is 15 minutes to Sugar Bowl ski resort. There is a full kitchen. Bring your own food...there is not a grocery store close to the house. Great for small all sleep in one room...lends itself to some family bonding time.

Very nice studio on ground floor. Awesome location.

  • 4 of 5

Confortable, modern, well equipped.

Perfect for couple or for single parent with one or two kids (like me).

I came on record snow year and snow was up to the first floor of the building but everything worked perfectly. Owner was friendly and responsive.

This warm and cozy house is perfect for a family with two kids!

  • 5 of 5

I want to thank you the owner of this wanderful home for all his help and care for our stying there. We had everything we needed in this winter trip: Warm room, kitchen, dryer for our wet winter clothes, nice bed and sofa. We used to put off our boots when entering a house, so it would be more convenient to have some warm rugs or carpet in the living room especially with small kids to croll around. One thing that I am sorry about is that we stayed too little days there. And we want to repeat our winter vacation some day! It is really a wanderful place to stay and enjoy snow and green trees around!
