We planned our church Ladies Retreat for Alvy's Hideaway before even seeing the house in person. We were more than surprised at the size of the place and the accommodations were excellent. Everyone was comfortable and there was plenty of space for 16 of us to maneuver around without feeling cramped. The pictures don't do the house justice as it has a much more open feel and spaciousness than they let on. The view of the lake was lovely and I was wishing for warmer weather to go and enjoy the fire pit and rustling trees. This is a beautiful location and I highly recommend it for anyone looking to do a family reunion or retreat. We'll be back!
We used Alvy's Getaway for a family holiday vacation. It was a great place for this and the check-in was handled well. It is a classy place with a great kitchen, living area and bedrooms. The only complaint was the last generation television sets.
we had a great time at alvy's! Everything was clean on arrival and smore supplies were even laid out since it was cold that weekend. Firewood was also provided which helped a lot! We will go back again - 10 adults + 5 kids fit no problem.
The accommodations were clean and plenty of room for our group. They did lack adequate outside electrical outlets for the number of boats we had. Distance to the dock should be by golf cart, as it's a long distance from the house. Overall, they did a good job in insuring our stay was pleasant.
We recently stayed at Alvy's for a family reunion. The house was in excellent shape and included all the accessories we needed to make 3 large meals everyday we were there. Pat was a great help and even brought us some home made bread and jelly- We will definitely return.
We arrived on Friday evening and Pat was at the house to great us and show us around. She was a great hostess and provided us with some very helpful information for things to do and local offerings. We found the property absolutely perfect for a wonderful family vacation. The kitchen is stocked with great items for meal preparation We are avid "chefs" and found the cookware above usual for rentals. ( we bring along our pans and did not need them here.) There are plenty of dishes and drinkware for lots of people. We utilized the griddle, ice cream machine, tea maker, and large coffee machine as well as large pots and pans for marvelous meals. The dining table is large and was great for breakfasts as we tend to eat in shifts of early risers and not so early risers. The screened in upper deck provided more than enough seating for us all to sit for dinners cooked on the BBQ! The bedrooms were situated well with 3 beds on the main levels including a master as well as 5 bedrooms on the walkout lower level. The decor is suited for a "Lake House" and very comfortable. I tend to be a bit OCD with cleaniness and was comfortable with most everything and did not find anything I thought was unacceptable. We had plenty of towels which with the washer and dryer provided were easily washed to keep up with the large family uses. The only item we found not working was the small counter top ice machine. We simply bought large bags of ice and kept them in the freezer so this was not a big problem. The dock was a nice stroll down the back yard and the kids and adults both enjoyed the fishing and swimming. We rented a pontoon from the State Marina a couple of days and came to the house via the dock very easily. The pontoon pulled us along for some fun tubing as well! We toasted smore's out at the fire pit and spent time night fishing off the dock and played numerous games of ping pong.
We visited the Farmers market in Cadiz and found fresh veggie's and some home baked items that everyone enjoyed. We also visited the elk and bison as well as the Planetarium at Land Between the Lakes. We treated ourselves to some ice cream at the little dairy bar located at the State Marina. This is a place we will definitely come back to. Our next time would include a weekly pontoon rental and a few jet skis. We absolutely loved this vacation and added many great memories of family fun times!
