We had a group of 19 that were looking for a place to stay for a reunion and a send-off for my brother who was being deployed again to Afghanistan. Finding a place to accommodate a group that size was difficult but as soon as we saw this house, we knew we'd found the right one! Chris was a pleasure to deal with and incredibly responsive to all of our questions prior to booking. Once there, we were all very impressed with the house and the layout and it easily accommodated our group, with the loft space for the kids being a huge bonus and hit with them. The highlight of the weekend was the view we had for fireworks on the 3rd and 4th. We saw multiple spectacular, professional firework displays from the back deck which were supplemented by the amateur displays around the lake. Truly incredible and almost made it worth the price all on it's own!
While it's definitely not the lap of luxury, the house is very comfortable and has all the amenities you can think of. The one caveat I'll add for potential renters is the lawn in the back is sloped so we did most of our outdoor activities on the tennis court in front. Also, while there is a beach, the immediate water is heavily covered in lily pads so the swimming is a bit challenging and any younger ones may be reluctant to try it.
All in all, the home far exceeded our expectations and Chris is a wonderful owner to work with!
