Absolutely beautiful lakehouse close to many vineyards! Best Thanksgiving ever! Must visit again!
"Our Thanksgiving is usually in upstate NY area. So, looking for a home to host 8 adults & 4 teens can be unnerving. But once I inquired about the home, Annie & Gary were wonderful and put us at ease. They answered all our questions, were super easy to communicate w/ and accessible by phone/email throughout from booking to the end of the stay. They went above & beyond to make sure we got everything we needed and were comfortable. Thank you Annie & Gary –your hospitality and attention to detail was exemplary! THE HOME is a beautiful 3-level lakehouse w/ wrap-around deck on the main level. Each level has 1 bedroom & 1 full bath. OUTSIDE: the home is surrounded by elegant tall trees, the lake is a short walk (minutes) from the house. There’s lots of acreage around the home so we relished the privacy, peace & quiet, and took leisurely walks around the woods– great after all the Thanksgiving food. Also, there is an outdoor gas grill, pool & fire pit, but we didn’t enjoy these due to cold/wet weather. INSIDE: the home was spotless-clean, neat & bright. Our hosts welcomed us w/ bottle of red wine- we instantly felt at home. We loved that the main level had an open floor plan w/ glass sliding doors to let in sunlight and reveal the breath-taking view outside –you can clearly see & hear the lake from the front deck. THE KITCHEN: was fantastic, fully equipped w/ high end appliances, lots of non-stick cookware, dining/serving utensils, spice cabinet, general kitchen supplies– I mean, all we had to bring was our own food. We totally enjoyed cooking in it while family gathered around the kitchen island, or large dining table, for food & conversation. THE BEDS: very comfortable, including both sofa-beds –everyone slept well. The boat-beds in upstairs are larger than the pic shows, my nieces (5ft 10in) fit perfectly. Plenty of bed linen, extra comforters and general bathroom supplies were provided. Washer/dryer were available too. The strong WiFi was very useful, and multiple TVs, board games & reading material were all great for family amusement. The teens hooked up their Playstation to TV in basement. The air-hockey was so much fun, it became an Olympic event for the teens.…and maybe an eye-hand reflex test for the adults. Lol. Also, since the area is studded w/ VINEYARDS, we visited one <10 minutes away. Lovely! Next time we will definitely do a wine & food tour. Overall, we loved everything, it was a Thanksgiving to remember! We plan to visit in spring/summer!"
