"Our family of 5 (2 adults, 3 kids - 15, 10, 6) just returned from a week long stay at this home on Lake Hamilton. The home is located at the end of a peninsula right off of Hwy 270. There are several other homes on the point, but you really can't see any of the other homes/yards from the back of the house, which is where we spent much of our time. The backyard is beautiful, with a large wooden deck, gas grill, fire pit, patio furniture, lush green grass, nice sized dock. You are only steps from the lake and you can swim/fish right off the dock. Some comments from my kids while we were there, "Mommy, thank you so much for finding a house where the entire backyard is just the lake!" and "I never want to leave this place!" The inside of the house is decorated like a beach cottage. There were plenty of towels and washcloths and we made use of the washer and dryer while we were there. The owners had also provided laundry detergent as well as basic toiletries like shampoo, conditioner, soap and paper goods (toilet paper, paper towels). I cooked every meal while we were there and the kitchen was well supplied with utensils/pots/pans/bowls/serving dishes/glasses. Only thing it was missing was a muffin pan. We had an issue with one of the older appliances, but it will likely be fixed before the next visitors. The living area was very comfortable, with plenty of room for everyone and throws in case anyone got chilly. Our kids enjoyed the supply of board games and puzzles and we also made use of the selection of DVDs that were available after it got too dark to swim. The bed in the master bedroom was a little uncomfortable - too soft and sagged in the middle - and the linens could do with an upgrade. I am not sure about the beds in the other room, but the kids seemed to sleep okay. The TV in the kid's room didn't work/wouldn't connect to the cable service, but that was okay with us as we were not there to watch TV anyway. The air conditioning in the house worked great and kept us nice and cool. One additional thing to note - the part of the lake that the house is on is evidently a hot spot for partying boaters known as the sand bar. There were always at least a couple of boats anchored there in the afternoon and some would blare music inappropriate for kids, curse loudly and throw beer bottles/cans into the water. These people weren't always there, but just something to be aware of in case you have small children and/or peace and quiet is important to you."
