"My husband and I and our two boys, 20 and 17 years, took our vacation at the end of September. We absolutely loved it here!!! Eileen was there when we arrived and was very kind and helpful in giving suggestions of things to do in the area. The home is very cozy and comfortable and has everything you could ever need for a fun, relaxing time with your family. If you forgot something, make sure to check the basement! We forgot our Frisbee and what do ya know? The same Frisbee was in this basement! The deck is full of beautiful flowers and I'm totally in love with the dining table and bouncy chairs! The yard is a perfect size and we used the fire pit every night of our stay. In the mornings, we'd take a walk around the neighborhood, which we really enjoyed.
The beach is a short walk down the street. It's spectacular! Be very mindful, however, if you take the path that's at the end of the street. On the second day, I managed to stumble upon a huge screw buried in the sand that went straight into my flip-flop. It was at least 5 inches long and only managed to nick the bottom of my foot. I'm not sure why it was in the sand but we threw it away and I hobbled back to the house, hoping to find some peroxide, which I did find in the cabinet above the toilet. After that incident, I'd walk down a few streets and then hop on the path to the beach. My family still used that same path and never had any issues.
Anyway, the location of this home is perfect! It's close to the zoo, park, the lighthouse, and just a short drive to some great restaurants and shopping at the Lighthouse Place Outlets. We even scheduled a tour of the Barker Mansion! It was amazing!!!
My family and I would love to come back during the warmer summer months in order to enjoy the boating and other water activities on the lake. The charters didn't run after Labor Day and the water was a bit too cold to swim. We still had a wonderful time and can't wait to come back!!!
Thanks so much, Eileen, for your hospitality and kindness!"
