Guestbook comments from the owner

We had the most amazing time spending quality time with our kids and grand kids in that spectacular house! We already miss each other and we are already making plans for next years gathering! The house was perfect for all 12 of us and we are expecting another grandchild to be with us next year. We didn't even utilize the bunk bed room as our 3 years old stayed in the car bed in their their parents room and the 11/2 year old slept in a pack and play in their parents room. So we as growing family will have plenty of room for years to come!

The boys had pool and ping pong tournaments, we built 2 snowmen, we pulled the kids around on the sledges, we had a bon fire every afternoon and night with marshmallows and hot chocolate. The kids cooked a thanksgiving meal for us and the kitchen was stocked with all the pots,pans,dishes,utensils, glasses cups,bowls etc. it had everything we needed and more.

There were extra folding chairs so all 12 of us were able to eat every meal @ the big table together. We also used their folding table in the kitchen for a buffet so we could have more counter space. We played board games, the little ones had a bath together in the big soaking tub! The awesome master bed was so comfortable that my bad back actually felt better in the morning!

The Main floor TV was great for watching videos and we put a big pack and play in the center and the little ones were able to stay contained with us all around them on the couches.

We were able to make the most amazing memories in this beautiful home and we are all looking forward to doing it again and again. Its the perfect house for us!

Thank you Beth for your kindness and help during this first time process.

Please let the owners know how truly blessed we feel that they shared their amazing home with us and made our dreams a reality. It is a wonderful gift they are giving to all who rent this space and I hope they will continue to rent it for years to come and if it every goes up for sale please let us know!

They were all very pleased and pleasantly surprised. I'm confident we made the "Best parents in the world" list!

Thanks again Beth, we will see you next year or maybe even sooner!

All the Best.

Perfect family retreat

  • 5 of 5

The lake! We really enjoyed the fishing of the lake. Lots of small/medium sized fish for the kids right off the dock with a bobber. We were catching bass around the lake and off the dock. For a small lake it was great. The house was very comfortable to fit our whole family. The kitchen was fully stocked with everything you needed to cook with high end pots pan etc. As a large group we felt no need even to venture out. To sum it up we had a great time and recommend.

Thank you again,

The Tesoriero Family

This house is absolutely perfect for a group of people. We had 15 guys, ages 25-60. This house slept us all comfortably and we had more than enough space to enjoy ourselves. There was literally TOO MANY THINGS TO DO. We didn't even get to the basketball court or horseshoe pits because the lake, yard, fire pit, grill and games in the basement consumed all of our time. The kitchen is well stocked with the essentials for cooking/grilling. 2 big TV's in the living areas with all the channels you need. A Sonos sound system with zones all throughout the house AND outside. Tons of fish in the lake with a great dock and kayaks. The house/property is well maintained and the shock value is just as good as the functionality. It's absolutely gorgeous. The Real Estate Agency was great too! Very accommodating and helpful when we found a few minor things that were broken upon arrival. The location is about 5 minutes from some essential stores (grocery, beer, liquor). You can hear the road in the distance, but it is pretty well secluded. I would highly recommend this house to anyone, and we will absolutely be back!

Amazing Property!

  • 5 of 5

This house was truly amazing. Stayed here with a group of friends and every one of them was in awe of the property. Had eveything: watersports, basketball, horseshoes, firepit, sound system that you could here outdoors and throughout the house, pool table, pingpong, arcade games, and so much more. This house had it all. Great place to stay for a large group. Plenty of bedrooms and space. A true log cabin. Booking process was smooth and had no issues. Chant-Irish Realtors were really easy to work with and answered every question we had. Would highly recommend renting this property.

Gorgeous property and house!

  • 5 of 5

Excellent spot!! From the moment, we pulled into the driveway we were impressed with the exterior and grounds. Beautiful full size basketball court, dock at private lake for fishing (or swimming in warmer weather), firepit, and horseshoe pit. Also, lawn space for any added outdoor games. Huge outdoor wrap around deck with gas grill and very nice outdoor shower. Impressive log cabin lodge with large sitting areas on all 3 levels. Basement was awesome….. full size video consoles, pool table, ping pong table, wet bar and an extremely large screen TV. Everyone who attended this bachelor party kept commenting on what a great house it was. Plenty to do with lots of room for everyone. Easily sleeps 16. Everyone wants to go back for a longer time. Great place for family reunions too!

Fantastic Stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

Where to begin! From the moment we inquired about the property, the management team was so helpful and organized. The property itself is amazing- so much space, so clean, and so inviting! The log cabin feel was perfect for our group and provided for an intimate weekend away. Management was constantly in contact with us regarding storm Jonas, and were more than accommodating due to the inclement circumstances. We loved our stay and will definitely return back!
