About Mark Holzer
Janet and I are both retired living full time in Kernersville, NC. We both grew up and raised our family in Indiana. Janet is from Corydon, Indiana and graduated from Evansville University. I grew up in Versailles, Indiana and graduated from Purdue University. In 1996 my company transferred me to North Carolina. We love living in North Carolina but still have family in Indiana. I love hunting and fishing and am an avid runner. I run the Indy Mini every year. My brother owns 180 acres attached to our property. He has a nice cabin on the far side of our property about a mile away. This is also his 'get away' property. His permanent home is in Versailles and I have a sister that lives about 10 minutes away in Cross Plains. We were fortunate to find such a beautiful property in an ideal location to relax and enjoy outdoors. My wife loves to read a good book and finds the property perfect for tranquility. We have two grown daughters married with two children each. They also love to visit the home. It is great for the grandkids as they love to roam the outdoors and fish. The photo is one with my oldest daughter, son-in-law with friends. We comfortably stayed at the home sleeping 6 adults and 6 children. We visit the home about 3 months through out year.
Mark Holzer purchased this House in 2014
Why Mark Holzer chose Vevay
This property is most valuable to us because of its setting. It is surrounded by woods and sits a good distance from the road. The road deadends less than a mile past our house and traffic is very limited with just a few homes past our property. It is very private and quiet. It is not uncommon to see wild turkey or deer crossing the yard not to mention the squirrels and rabbits. The house is fully furnished with linens for bath and beds and the kitchen is furnished with everything you should need. The outdoor fire pit is popular to fire up late in the evening and perhaps make s'mores for everyone. The 50 foot deck in the back provides a scenic view of the lake and forest. Includes a gas grill and gas cooker. A lighted dock next to the lake is also enjoyable in the late evening to enjoy a nice beverage and conversation with family and friends. It is in the country and very secluded but near enough small towns and villages for getting essential groceries. It is near historic towns to visit. Vevay and Madison. In the winter months a wood pellet stove provides plenty of heat for the home and displays a beautiful flame. Free wifi and cable tv is provided.

Secluded Country Home
The stay at this home was very relaxing and enjoyable. The owners were very easy to contact with any questions or concerns(of which we had none).
Easy and quiet
The property is ...way off the beaten path, which was great for our girls trip. The kitchen had everything we needed, it was super clean, and we got some early morning visitors when some deer wondered up. We didn't get to enjoy the pond or much of the outdoor area except when we had a group fitness class (don't ask why we did this on a relaxing trip). We enjoyed a day trip into Vevay and Madison too. Highly suggest if you want to enjoy nature and just have some peace and quiet. Communication with the owner couldn't have been easier and we very much enjoyed the wine brother dropped off!!! Would definitely recommend and would go back.
Thank you very much. You are definitely welcome to come back.
A fantastic weekend!
Our extended family met here from various parts of the country and we had a blast! The house and property were just perfect for us. The house was extremely clean and the yard nicely mowed. Everything we needed was provided, as promised. The hiking trails were great... we made use of the pond. The country setting is quiet and private. The owner is very easy to communicate with, helpful with any questions, and welcoming. All of us there agreed: we could not have found a better place, and we highly recommend this house to anyone considering it I know there are a lot of attractions in the area, but we stayed put, just enjoying our fun time as a family, and this particular home helped make our time together special! Thanks so much!
You were the perfect guests that any homeowner wishes to have. Please come back or send your friends.
The property exceeded my expectations. Everything was very clean, we needed absolutely nothing other than the food and drinks that we would consume. It is about 20 minutes from the downtown area, which is limited if you are not used to the isolation. Home is 1 hour and 12 minutes from The Ark Encounter which was impressive and very informative/educational. Home is also about 1 hour from the Creation Museum, which was also very nice. Check out the outdoor playgrounds for both attractions and purchase the dual pass for both attractions!
Mark (property owner) was very communicative and accessible/available.
