Great Lake House Vacation

My husband and I stayed at the Lake House for a quiet weekend away from it all. We brought our boat and docked it at the house. The Lake is absolutely beautiful, the cottage is in a great location on the lake. We had lunch at 'Down the Hatch' located right on the water.
Overall, great vacation! Cottage is clean and cozy. Owner is a pleasure to deal with. Can't wait to go back.

I have to admit that I did have some hesitation in renting a vacation home using the internet. You never know who you might be dealing with or the condition of the property. This home was an incredible find and Dave, the owner, the most honest and pleasant person to deal with.
My kids and their friends had a blast! We swam, fished, used the kayaks, canoe and tubes. I rented a boat at a nearby marina and kept it at the dock for the week. Greatly conveinient.
I have nothing bad to say. Beautiful place, incredibly clean, and ultimately relaxing. I will not forget those morning coffees on the dock as the sun came up.
I plan on renting again.
Katie & I purchased this property for a fun family getaway and it has been absolutely wonderful. The kids grew up on the lake and had so much wholesome fun with their cousins and friends. We have enjoyed every aspect of the lake and it's a wonderfully relaxing little slice of heaven every time we arrive.
Dave Smith purchased this house in 2004
We vacationed at different lakes for over 10 years searching for just the right home. Each summer we would rent a home on a different lake to learn the lake. Water quality, real estate values, proximity to our home were all important factors.
One year we decided to stay closer to home and visit Candlewood. It's just an hour from our home.
When we arrived for our vacation the owner mentioned that he was getting married and moving. We searched for available homes on the lake that week but nothing compared to this home.
By the end of the week we bought it!
This property is unlike any other that we know of.
In addition to having all of our prerequisites; great waterfront with a private sandy beach area (many have rocky shores), direct waterfront (no street crossing as the kids were little), private dock, westerly facing to catch the sunsets over the lake, private setting (end of a dead end lake association private road), so private but not so secluded that it was a problem (we're just 5 minutes from major shopping), and more, the property is also two units with separate deeded ownership.
Being two units allows for a whole series of benefits that a single unit can't provide.
1) We don't use the property much in the winter and we can rent them separately which generates twice the income.
2) We can have guests stay and they have a complete unit to themselves, meaning separate bedrooms and bathrooms fro privacy and even a fully equipped second kitchen so the early risers don't disturb the sleepers.
3) Two docks!!! We may be the only property on the lake with two docks. It is such a wonderful feature when we have multiple boats, etc.
4) We have two kids so they can each enjoy a family getaway and may even inherit a lake getaway of their own.
5) For resale it increases the uses and therefore the pool of buyers. A family compound where Mom & Day own one unit and a child owns the second. or two friends each own a unit and they share the property or take turns with private vacations. This option makes waterfront ownership SO MUCH MORE AFFORDABLE than a single unit.
The property is very unique and so exceptional in many ways.
I just want to let you know how excited the family is about our upcoming trip to your lake house this summer. We all had such a terrific time and the house was amazing with all the amenities.
Our little ones enjoyed the water and dock to splash around. The adults enjoyed the swimming, boating and water activities.
Cruising the waterways of Candlewood Lake is always fun and there are lots of mysterious islands to explore.
In the late afternoon we all returned to the deck in back of the house to watch the fantastic views of the sunset with a glass of wine!
When the Good Lord determines that he needs a retreat from His Heavenly realm, He will no doubt enlist Kate and Dave Smith to design the Perfect Lake House for Himself and The Angels.
Our family travelled from Texas, New York, Florida, and California and can't wait to do it all again! Thank you!

My wife and I shared this property with 5 of our friends and enjoyed a great week. Both units here are well kept and are modern. Our boat was just steps away each day, the fire pit a great place to gather around in the evening, the dockside seating area great for enjoying afternoon cocktails, and a large deck on the back of the house was great for enjoying evening meals. A less than 10 minute drive to a variety of stores, restaurants, entertainment, etc. The owners were very accommodating! Would definitely, recommend this property to friends!
My family and I stayed at the lake house the second week of july. My sister and family of 4 rented one side and my family of 5 on the other side. The house wasn't fancy and was more than adequate for our needs. The back yard, patio area and docks were awesome. The back area was very private with greenery between us and both neighbors. There are plenty of restaurants, golf and activities in the area but we felt like we were missing out on the lake whenever we left. We cooked out on the grill or made diner home all six nights and had a great trip. The owner was great to deal with. I noticed a small blemish on the bathroom floor(which I was able to get out) and called Dave because I was concerned one of the kids did it. His reply "don't sweat the small stuff". The only negative moment we had all week was when we had to leave.
We rented both cottages for our immediate and extended family members. The space worked beautifully. The owners have paid great attention to details to make anyone's stay relaxing. The hammock was a perfect resting spot. The kids loved the fire pit for smores. We had plenty of room on the large deck to accommodate everyone comfortably for sunset dinners. Ample parking for cars.
Being at the north end of the lake was key to a peaceful vacation. We enjoyed fishing, boating, swimming, tubing, and kayaking. The bonus is the small flat area in front of the docks. We put up a badminton set and played each day.
When we wanted more action, we rented a pontoon boat from Gerard's Marina, traveled to Down the Hatch for lunch, & had a blast at Chicken Rock.
The views are just spectacular here. We had a wonderful time and look forward to coming again.
Bless you Dave And Kate.
What an unbelievable time we had at the cottage thanks so much Dave see you next year.
As soon as we arrived at this wonderful pristine peaceful place i instantly relaxed. When we went inside the units I was amazed and joyed how beautifully designed comfortable, well equipped and immaculate each unit was, The setting was just beautiful and serene.. The outside deck allowed a panoramic view of the beauty surrounding this place,. I highly recommend staying there and I most definitely will return to this wonderful piece of paradise every chance I get.

GREAT KITCHEN TO COOK IN. WE REALLY APPRECIATED THE ICE MAKER!
THE LOCATION WAS SECLUDED AND QUIET. THIS IS A WONDERFUL SPOT TO VACATION.
