"My daughter, who recently moved to New Jersey from NYC, found this beautiful lakeside home for our family so that we could be together to celebrate my husband's 65th birthday. Years ago, when our four children were small, we spent several summers at a house on Lake Arrowhead, CA. Our family has many happy memories of that house. When we asked my husband how he wanted to spend this milestone birthday, he replied, "...sit by a lake and BBQ". Never did I think we could find a similar place on the East coast. However, my daughter hit the jackpot...this house was perfect! The lake views, the spacious rooms, the kitchen, all of the amenities (dishes, pans, towels, tablecloths, books, games, kayaks, a boat, a dock, a fire pit, a BBQ), everything was there. We felt as if we were back on Lake Arrowhead again! Fortunately, 3 of our 4 children were able to make it, along with our son-in-law and the girlfriend of my youngest son (who perhaps will be a future daughter-in-law...we now know she helps out with dishes and general clean-up, a good sign!). My husband had an unforgettable birthday and we hope to come back for many more family reunions. And, there is plenty of room for future grandchildren in the years to come! I also need to mention that the owner of the house, Katy, is very thoughtful and helpful. She keeps this house cozy and clean and after just one visit, it already seems like home."
