Memories were made!

If we could judge our next vacation home by the chatter in the car on the way home, this home was the perfect vacation abode. We had been looking for a first time full family vacation home accommodating ages 3m to 91! We found it in Wayne and Marilyn's lovely home. If cleanliness is truly next to Godliness. We were in heaven! Very clean, warmly decorated with family pictures and cozy charm. With the full house amenities to wood for the fire pit we wanted for absolutely nothing. The size was perfect for our family of 10 and an infant. A lovely lake view bedroom on the main floor close to a bath was perfect for Great Grandma. An extra TV room upstairs was great for the kiddos for special movie watching. The landscaping was beautiful and having only to walkout the back door for beach access was perfect. For the timid first timers the shallow warm water with sandy bottom was absolutely wonderful! The home had access to other wonderful memory makers as well. We won't forget the nightly walks to the best ice cream in town just down the road one way. The children thoroughly enjoyed other walks to the park just a walk around the corner the opposite. This home had so many wonderful attributes. Wayne and Marilyn were so very nice and you can tell they have a great pride in their home. We thank them so very much for sharing it with us.

AMAZING VACATION

This is an amazing home! Our week at this home was like being at home only better! Our party of 10 were extremely comfortable. The kids (ages 2-15) took advantage of the lake, loved the nightly walk to the Tasty Treat for ice cream, the short walk to the park, and loved all of the activities in the quaint downtown just a short walk away. We have extended family in Lake City and enjoyed being able to visit with them without the hassel of asking them for a spare cot. The lake is fantastic for tubing, water skiing, fishing or just a leisure boat ride. This home is perfect for a family getaway or an adult getaway. All of the amenities are provided, and a few extras stowed away in the garage. We will be enjoying this lake home for our summer family vacation every year! Thank you Wayne and Marilyn for opening your home so our family can create amazing, life long, generational memories.
Owner's Response: Ruth it was a pleasure to get to know you and your family. We feel the same way you do, it is the best location on the lake. We enjoy our walks to the park and our often too many walks to the tasty treat! We are looking forward to having you and your family back as repeated guests this summer. Thank you for treating our home as if it were your own. It is the 5th generation of Bartletts enjoying the lake house. We are so excited for you and your extended family to create great memories as we have over the last several decades. Hope to hear from you soon! See you this summer! Wayne and Marilyn

BEST VACATION EVER!

We wanted to have our first ever family reunion but didn't know where to go. After much searching we were fortunate enough to find this house on the same lake as my brother's cottage. He couldn't house all of us, so we split up between the two homes. We spent most of our time here with his jet skis and boat, and were able to have family meals together, walks into town, beautiful campfires, sunsets, and just a host of other amenities. This house was perfect for us because of the 2 refrigerators, the kitchen that had ever gadget possible, 2 full bathrooms, washer & dryer, everything we left behind at home. We were able to play family games outside on the beautiful lawn, along with a large garage and picnic tables. We didn't want for anything! The decorations in the home and the landscaping are absolutely beautiful! You can tell that Marilyn & Wayne are very proud of their own family and their lovely home. The beds were extremely comfortable and the rooms were just picturesque. Memories were made that won't ever be forgotten. All of us want to thank Marilyn & Wayne for helping to make our vacation the BEST VACATION EVER! God's blessings to you and your family!!

We had the best experience at Wayne and Marilyn's house on the lake! The house was roomy, comfortable, and clean. We loved having the extra refrigerator in the garage and access to a washing machine and dryer! The yard is gorgeous and the hammock and tree swing were favorite resting and reading spots for us! Thanks so much for opening your house to us - we treasure our week with our siblings and nieces and nephews and we had the perfect place to spend that week!

We had a wonderful week at Wayne and Marilyn's place. The house was spacious, the yard was large and very well maintained, the lake was great. There were 8 of us and we had plenty of room. The house was very nice and very clean and full of all amenities.
The kids (we had 4 with us) LOVED the close proximity to Tasty Treat. They walked there many times and had ice cream every day. Lake Missaukee is a wonderful lake for families with small children - shallow and warm.
Even without having a private beach (the beach is right in front, it's public), it was no big deal. There was plenty of room when other people came down to swim. It was as if it was their private beach.
We would recommend this vacation house. We had a great week with our family and have many good memories.
Wayne and Marilyn are super nice and very accomodating.
