                                        Great place for a weekend away with friends

                                        Angela D.

                                        Aqua Dock provided a great location for a weekend with friends. We loved the open kitchen/dining/living space, stylish updates, and big windows with beautiful views of the lake. We comfortably slept 4 adults and the kitchen was stocked with everything we needed to make our meals. Cassie is an organized, responsive, and accommodating host.

                                        Nice home on Harper lake

                                        Jeff W.

                                        Enjoyed our ice fishing trip to irons and this home was perfect! Beautiful home right on the lake!

                                        Lovely Cozy Cottage.

                                        Richard R.Durango, Colorado

                                        Great house, great location, beautifully appointed. What more can I say? We'll be back.

                                        awesome spot and even better property owner

                                        brian m.

                                        We booked Aqua dock for the weekend and loved every minute of it!! the property is well taken care of and well appointed. It has all you could possibly need or ask for in a rental...it really feels more like a home away from home. I strongly recommend renting this property in any season as it is situated right on a beautiful inland lake and comes with a canoe and kayaks for the outdoorsy types and a ton of board games for the indoorsy types.

                                        Amazing property!!!

                                        Tammy R.

                                        We had an awesome girls weekend. The house was clean, beautiful & comfortable. The beds were comfy. Plenty of hot water for us to shower. A tad to cold for us to use the outdoor shower but it was tempting. The outdoor space was amazing. Loved the fire pit, deck, swing and the incredible sand beach. We were lucky enough to enjoy the beach chairs and kayaks. Gorgeous lake and sunset view. Our "chef" travels with her own cookware but it was not necessary. Kitchen is stocked with good quality items.

                                        After polling my girlfriends none of them could come up with one negative thing to say about the property. Cassie was great at making us feel welcome and quick at answering my texts.

                                        Having the Dublin store within a few miles was an added bonus. Would love to stay here again & again.

                                        An amazing place to stay!

                                        Jamie C.

                                        I would love to come back and would recommend this place to all my family/friends. The house is clean, well stocked and has such a cozy atmosphere! Spacious living room, dinning, kitchen and deck.
