Guestbook comments from the owner

In mid-June of 2010 my family of 11 spent a week at Bashan Lake in this wonderful house. We are a group whose ages range from 6 years old to 80, covering three generations. We all loved this place, the house, the grounds, and the lake. We swam, we boated, we played soccer on the front lawn....terrific! As the description on the website indicates, just about everything is provided. We have had family get-togethers in England, Italy, and the South of France, and this one was at least at good as any of those! FH, New York City

Family Reunion in July 2011

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed this special home in July of 2011, with a family reunion of 18 people of all ages. We were able to bring our small wood runabout to use on the lake and enjoyed tubing and water skiing. There is a wonderful deck by the water which we enjoyed and the swimming was great, the water cool and clear. The home is well appointed and very large, it was very easy to gather together or find a quiet place to enjoy some solitude. There are wonderful porches and patios outside and a great porch swings to enjoy. This is a wonderful place for a family to gather - truly a lovely and peaceful spot with a large yard and great places to play ! The owners cherish this home so be prepared to care for it well if you choose to stay. I promise it is worth it....we had a wonderful time and will have great memories of this family reunion for many years to come.

Amazing Time!!

  • 5 of 5
Thanks for a great week at your home on Basham Lake. We all (three
generations: parents, 3 children and spouses and 9 grandchildren) loved
our time there and the house and grounds were great! The kids loved the
fishing - everyone caught something and our 9 yr old granddaughter
caught a 3 pound bass off the dock using worms as bait! We also enjoyed
the many attractions in the area including Gillette Castle and Devil's
Hopyard Park. Again, thanks for a great week!

WONDERFUL TIME HAD BY ALL!

  • 5 of 5
Our family ages 4 to 78 spent an incredible week at this memorable home on the lake. We enjoyed every minute and no one wanted to leave! We spent time watching our family swim, fish, float, enjoyed dinners on the porch, had stories around the camp fire. One of my favorite spots was watching the sunrise from the balcony enjoying my coffee and paper. We've already booked next year. Thank you for all the time you spent helping to make our family time exceptional. Tony D
