It is the most beautiful lake house! The owner and her mom is amazing! The house is huge!
Loved the House and it's owner!!
The house had so much character to it! It was perfect! The property itself is very large, we put tents up outside for the kids to sleep in! The lake is shallow, making it perfect for the kids - overall this House was great and we enjoyed it very much!
Very clean, beautiful lake, big yard
I visited with eight adults and six children and we had a great time at the lake house! The place was very, very clean and we loved how shallow the water was and were amazed how clean it was. The kids had a great time playing in the big back yard and us adults got good use of the deck.
Thrilled to have had you and your lovely family. Please come back as soon as you can, would love to have you! Ellie
Great property Ellie is awesome!!! Cozy wonderful lake
Loved having you and your beauty family Chris! Come back and see us again ASAP!
Perfect Home for a Perfect Wedding Weekend
We held our wedding here in August 2016. The property is huge and very well maintained. It accommodated our intimate wedding of 85 people and had plenty of space for a large tent (35x40) down by the lake. The lake, trees, and historic look of the home made for AMAZING photos. We received endless compliments from our wedding guests regarding the location and setting. Though it is in a rural location, it is conveniently close to stores and hotels.
The home/kitchen was well stocked for basic needs. Ellie provided lake toys, a fire pit, tiki torches, and a ton of other amenities to ensure we enjoyed our stay and had the best wedding weekend possible. Ellie really couldn't have been more accommodating. We booked from out of state and she was extremely responsive to any questions we had, she was able to recommend wedding vendors in the area, and went above and beyond to help us solve any issues we ran into. Her lovely family even offered help where we needed it.
If you are having a wedding or just want to spend time relaxing at the lake, this is a beautiful and fun place for family and friends to gather!
Chelsea, Thank you for your kind words. It was such a pleasure to host the beginning of you and your lovely guy's lives togethet ❤ Please come again soon! Merriest Christmas and Happiest of New Year to you and yours! Ellie
