We had the pleasure of staying in this great home to celebrate an early Christmas with my family, who travelled from all over the country. It fit the 9 of us very comfortably! Plenty of seating in the living room, seating for 6 at the dining room table, with 3 barstools at the counter. Kitchen was fairly well stocked, but be prepared to bring all your own condiments, spices etc., which is no big deal.
The back deck is huge, with beautiful views and access to the lake. It rained the whole time we were there, but I could easily see spending many days outside, and dining al fresco at the porch table.
I knocked one star off this review for a few small reasons. One reason is the multiple power outages. The power outage is part of life and no one's fault, because of all the much needed rain. However, the problem is that there were only 2 candles in the whole entire house. No flashlights or other emergency candles etc., anywhere. That made for a VERY dark night, and a long walk in the dark to the bathroom on the other side of the house. The fireplace is for show, and does not put out any heat. Luckily, it wasn't a very cold night. What is not stated is that if the power does in fact go out, so does the water. We did not have running water for hours. I would recommend posting this somewhere in the house, and maybe having a few gallon jugs of emergency water stowed somewhere.
All in all, our stay was wonderful, and we thoroughly enjoyed the time we spent together. Judith sent helpful instructions and accurate directions. She was very gracious and allowed us to check in early, in order to get the great grandparents sorted before it got dark. We would absolutely stay here again, and would highly recommend this place to everyone! Thank you for your hospitality!
