This place was just like home - full kitchen, spacious living area, towels and linens in the closet, internet and tv's, heat for the chilly night and window air conditioners upstairs and down that kept things cool, everything we could want for a fun family gathering. There was defintely the flavor of visiting as welcome guests. The house is right on the lake for swimming and kayaking. The bedrooms are four full bedrooms, which we appreciated. There was plenty of parking, important with all the kids and guests who came in separate cars. We could walk up to the restaurant, which had a nice variety of delicious dishes. Our Chihuahuas were approved in advance, and were welcomed, not just tolerated. The thing that made this rental stand out overall, though, was the very gracious and attentive landlord. When it got chilly and I needed to know how to work the heat, for exmple, I called and got directions on the spot, no waiting or leaving messages. When I was packing up at the end of the week, Kirsten stopped by with my deposit refund before I even called. The communications in finding out about the rental and setting it up were always clear, with quick response times. We felt like members of the family more than renters, which really added to the vacation experience. I would definitely return here for a future vacation.
