WONDERFUL vacation at this AMAZING property

  • 5 of 5
I can't say enough good things about this place and the experience of renting it. It had everything; it was like a mini-resort just for our family. We rented it for one week, and commented that we'd need it for at least a month to feel like we fully experienced it. We never left the property for a week, and every day was unique and full of new adventures. We drove the golf cart to the pool, we looked at the most beautiful river view from a comfortable swing bench, we looked for frogs and turtles in the ponds, we used the hot tub (outdoors, so we could watch deer and groundhogs while we tubbed!), we used the extensive indoor game area (with air hockey, foosball, etc), we shot basketball hoops and played tennis on our private court, we watched one of the 500 movies on the big screen TV, etc etc!

Our family had a reunion there with 4 toddler/preschoolers, and they LOVED it, and never wanted to leave. There were a few toys for them there too, like rocking horses, a mini picnic table, and a mini wishing well. Everywhere we turned there was something neat that we did not expect. There is one set of stairs between the upstairs and downstairs that you might want to block off if you have a toddler. (There is a stepladder in the utility closet that does a decent job, if you don't bring a gate).

The owner, Bob, was a pleasure to deal with and very responsive. He clearly cares a lot about the property, and it shows. Everything was in excellent condition and very clean. He came out a few times during the week to check on the pool and other things. He also provides all sorts of things, like toilet paper, body wash, laundry detergent, linens, etc that many other places don't provide, which is so convenient. It's also worth noting that the three of the four bedrooms can be configured as king beds or twins (the fourth can only be two twins). We had them made into king beds, and they were very comfortable. There is an extra bed in the game room as well, which has a door, so this is a viable extra room for someone too.

We have already recommended this rental to many others, and are considering making it our family vacation destination again next year. I made a photo of the beautiful view from the living room window (of the pond and field) my desktop background because I already miss the place. It's really a unique place and experience. Don't miss out!

Privacy, swimming pool and grandkids that all caught their first fish in the pond. Everything was clean and everything you would need was there. Bob did a great job going over details of property with us and told us to make the house our own. We have very large family but never felt cramped. Hate writing this review because I'm afraid others will find out about this hidden jewel. I'm calling Bob tonight to rebook for next year.
