"Steve's home is beautiful, and it was perfect for all the kids that we had on the trip. It was obvious that the home was set up for multifamily groups. The bedrooms had a good mix of queen size beds and bunk beds.The master bedroom was roomy and had a very comfortable king size bed, and good size bathroom. We weren't thrilled that the water was well water, but we were happy to find that it was nearly undetectable. I wouldn't recommend drinking it, but it was nice not dealing with a strong well water odor. We really liked the open layout of the main floor, which is where we spent most of our time, and the dining table even allowed for us to squeeze all 16 of us around it for dinner. Granted, we used two high chairs for the littlest ones, but we still managed to eat together, which was very important to me and my wife. As advertised, access to the beach is within 5 minutes, which were really grateful for. We loved the walk with the kids to the dam and nature path near the home. There is a great little rock beach area along the path that the kids, and adults, loved. The rocks were all flat and perfect for rock skipping.
There were two small reasons for not giving this place 5 stars. The home was well maintained and clean, unfortunately there was some garbage on the grounds around the home. I'm assuming it was left there by the people who rented the home before us, but the cleaning crew missed some stuff. One other small thing was the temperature control in the residence. The home has great A/C, but it's nearly impossible to get all three levels to be at the same temp. The basement gets pretty cold, the main floor is comfortable and the third floor bedrooms are on the warm side...cold rather than too hot is a good problem to have.
Lastly, we have some great memories of our 25th wedding anniversary, and most of them have to do with our stay in this beautiful place. This is definitely a home that we will recommend to friends, and will probably use again, if we can manage to get all of us together again in one place for five days."
