We rented this property as a family with my in-laws: 6 adults, 6 children, ages 15 to almost 9 years old. The property is gorgeous, very large, and the beachfront area is wonderful to either swim or use the kayaks/canoe. Our dogs absolutely loved romping on the property & swimming in the lake.
The inside of the house was large enough to easily accommodate our group, with people able to tuck into cozy corners to read...or work on a puzzle, or hang out with each other. We did not have to use the bunk beds in the basement, but there would have been room for 8 additional people!
A welcome surprise was the hot tub, which we were not aware of ahead of time, but Nancy graciously allowed us to use.
The absolutely amazing part is that we were not asked to clean the house upon departure. We did straighten up and finish dishes, etc., but to not have to clean 6 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, & living space was wonderful!
The only "down" part was that blue-green algae was found in the water at the end of the week, making it necessary to avoid swimming for us and our dogs. However, we appreciated that the "water patrol" let us know, and Nancy quickly contacted us to make us aware as well.
We did buy measuring cups and spoons and steak knives to leave at the house, as they were not there, and we did need these items for cooking/eating. However, that was a minimal price to pay for what we paid for the wonderful, relaxing vacation.
We have rented from other homeowners previously, but this was BY FAR the best experience! Nancy, thank you so very much for providing a wonderful home to share!
