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.

Best house for long weekend with friends

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time renting this amazing house with a group of friends and as always it was a wonderful experience!

The property offers something for everyone; from lounging in the pond and floating trampoline, playing a game of hoops, or just napping, you feel like you are in your private compound. The 'real world' just melts away and you feel connected to the beautiful surroundings and all of your cares go away.

I cannot recommend this house enough and we look forward to our next visit!

Amazing Property, Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 15 guys coming in with high expectations for this property, and it did not disappoint. The photos do not even do it justice. The property had so much to offer, we never felt the need to venture out. We spent hours on the basketball court, in the yard, and at the lake. The yard was a little hilly but still perfectly fine for all our lawn games and the private lake was the ideal size for our group. The boat shed offered two kayaks and several life vests for our use, and the fishing on the lake was better than expected. The fire pit was a great size with plenty of space to accommodate a large group. The expansive back deck had a nice grill and two large tables with ample seating. (One thing of note was that the grill’s igniter did not work, but we had no problem firing up the burners with a butane lighter.)

The interior of the house was astounding as well. The basement was the main draw here with a huge TV, billiards, ping pong, and numerous arcade games. The kitchen was fully stocked with anything you could need, with the large dining table steps away. The living room had brand new couches and another large TV connected to cable. No one had a problem finding a spot to sleep comfortably and the house actually offered more beds than pictured. Notably, the entire house offers A/C.

Beth from the real estate agency was a pleasure to deal with and quick to answer any concerns. Our group enjoyed the local delivery pizza place, Rolly’s, that was recommended by the agency. Anything else you could need (beer, liquor, grocery, dining) is a short drive away. Overall, we very much enjoyed our stay and were sad when it came to an end.

We used this house for a reunion with about 10 adults and 4 kids. This house was exactly what we were looking for! Spacious inside with lots of entertainment options, with an amazing plot of land including a BBQ grill, private lake, horseshoe court, and fire pit. We’ll definitely rent this house again. Everything was great, just bring extra towels and paper towels.

Great weekend at this comfortable homestead.

  • 5 of 5

Despite the inclement weather, we had a terrific stay and experience. Only recommendations would be to provide better glassware, towels and a knife sharpener. Had to run out and buy a dozen towels. Would have been fun to have access to the hot tub, but understand owners concerns. Property was perfect and private. Good fun.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your testimonial, we are so glad your group had a great time. We will advise the owners to add additional glassware and a knife sharpener. Linens including sheets, comforters, pillows and kitchen towels are provided by the owners, however tenants are responsible to provide their own bath towels. We look forward to group coming back in the future.
