Steve and Janette's home is amazing. Basically, pull up, put your belongings in the house and fridge then relax on the pier, deck or by the fire. The pictures do not do it justice.
The kitchen is huge, bright and very well stocked. Anything we needed we could find. Our large group of adults appreciated a Keurig and a traditional coffee maker.
Bathrooms were large and immaculate. Another plus was we never ran out of hot water!
The upstairs loft was a dream for our group of 20-something adults. Many of the rental homes we looked at would sleep 10-12 but with bunk beds. The queen beds in the loft were perfect for our boys who where 6'2" and up. Two of our family members were unable to come, if they did there was ample room for them.
Steve and Janette had more water toys than we expected. The standup paddle board was a HUGE hit. The garage was stocked with outdoor toys for all ages.
As July can be quite buggy in the Northwoods, we greatly appreciated the large supply of firewood. The smoke kept the mosquitoes away. Speaking of the firepit, there is more than enough room to fit 10 people comfortable around it for an evening of smores!
During the week we saw a momma loon with her babies, a heron who walked the beach daily who we named "Gary", numerous hummingbirds around the feeder in the late afternoon, deer in the driveway, and an adult bald eagle with her eaglet teaching it to fish! We believe the nest was very close to the house as they perched in the neighbor's tree.
Speaking of neighbors, we met both and they were lovely and welcoming.
Steve's communication prior to our visit was very timely and complete. Every question posed to him was answered quickly and concisely.
Our group of 10 couldn't have asked for a better home to spend a week. We hope to return next year.
The property had everything we needed, and the dock access made boating very convenient. Everything was very clean and well maintained. Both Tobin and Anna were extremely nice and answered all of our questions. I would highly recommend staying here. The property is exactly as described.
