Great house for large groups!!

  • 4 of 5

We had a really large group, but we never felt on top of each other. The kitchen was great with two ovens, two dish washers and a large refrigerator. The game and theater rooms were awesome! The pool was nice and big with plenty of lawn chairs. It was super helpful to have two washers and dryers too!! The only two items that keep me from giving this a 5 star rating is that some of the rooms had attached bathrooms, but I wouldn't consider them "Suites". They were kinda small and the bathrooms were standard. The only really nice suite was on the top floor (which had a nice bathroom and good sized closet). The second item that could be improved was the dining room table. It was a great size, but the table top was incredibly sticky and the chairs were worn down. Maybe they could poly the table and recushion the chairs and it would be much better! Overall a great home, with a beautiful view!!

Great House for a large family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had six small families that came together for one large family vacation. The bedrooms were roomy and comfortable. The kitchen well appointed and had everything we needed.

We grilled out on the main deck several times and when we needed additional propane, it was quickly replaced. The view from the multiple decks were outstanding! The weather didn't always cooperate, however, the game and theater rooms kept the fun going! I highly recommend this property for a family looking for a great house for a family get together. The only negative was the house is starting to show some wear - dust around vents, comforters could use a good washing, games in game room showing some wear and other (very) minor upkeep issues. How could I forget to talk about the pool area!!??!!! That was the best part - the pool was great during the day and in the evening - especially with the speakers and lights. The family is already looking forward to our next large family gathering in 2019 and this house is a serious contender!
