We just had our 5th annual week long family get together at this great property. We have a big group (10 adults, 9 kids (from teenagers to toddlers), & the occasional dog) and although the big house didn't quite sleep everyone we were thrilled to be able to rent a couple of the cottages just outside the gate from the "Big House" (which we came to lovingly call it). And the property with all of it's amenities suited our entire group perfectly! The hot tub overlooking the lake, the mountains, and the AMAZING sunsets was a huge hit. The ping pong table, pool table, splash pad, upper deck with misters, tiki bar and lounge, wine cellar, BBQ, wood fire pizza oven, fire pit (with tons of chairs), private dock, and of course the LAKE were such hot spots for our group. Honestly, there were so many places for our group to "congregate" that we picked a new spot every night to hang out! Bob and Tori were simply WONDERFUL and responded, usually within minutes, to our questions and requests (like how to use the pizza oven and where were the controls for the splash pad). We spent HOURS playing, swimming and boating in the lake with access right from our own yard! So convenient. And with our own private dock we just left the boat in the water for nearly the whole week (at one point the wind picked up so we opted to pull it out). The other thing that we LOVED about this house and property is that it's not too fussy and fancy. Which, for our group, made it SO comfortable and enjoyable. Several of the houses that we've rented in years past have been so "fancy" that we spent the entire week fretting over our kids "being kids". ("Don't eat in the house!" Don't come in with wet feet!" "Don't touch the walls!" - No fun!) Bob and Tori raised their kids here so the house and yard are delightfully kid friendly. The yard is completely contained with gates out to the driveway and dock and a fence that can be put up and down to block access to the lake. This security for our kids really let us relax knowing that our "Littles" couldn't get themselves into too much trouble. Lastly, the proximity to stores, restaurants, and even a little nail salon (all within walking distance) allowed us to enjoy "town" without having to drive our giant group around. We would highly recommend this house and property on the lake to any group looking for a relaxing, fun-filled, low maintenance, get away. We can't wait to go back!!
