This was a last minute get-away for two families and it couldn't have ended up better. The house was extremely comfortable and clean. The open floor layout made it easy for the families to enjoy each other for meals and games and even TV watching, what little we did of that. I also have to mention the washer and dryer located off the main bedroom. It made life so much easier, especially with 8 people living under the same roof. The children, 3 six yr olds and a 9 yr old, were more than happy swim in the crystal clear lake all day, every day. Rae and Dale thought of everything for a wonderful lake experience. They have 2 kayaks and a paddle boat just waiting to get wet. They even supplied the life jackets. The beachfront was clean and had plenty of chairs for everyone. A huge plus was the ability to launch our boat and keep it anchored all week...that is when we weren't using it to fish or tube. In the evenings we made S'mores in the fire pit and grilled burgers and dogs on the grill. Rae and Dale were beyond helpful and only a call away if any questions arose. It was a wonderful trip,one which we hope to duplicate again and again at molasses pond.
