Very peaceful and great for a family with (small) kids.

  • of 5
This is a really tranquil place with lots of space to play and run around. We stayed there with 4 adults (including grand parents) and three kids aged 5, 3, 1. Although we arrived late Karon and Rod waited for us in order to show us the house. The inside of the house is much nicer than the pictures show. Although a lot of the furniture and the decoration is old-style, everything very well maintained and fits together really nicely. A lot of attention is given to details. Although you get the feeling that this is a place the owners live in very often (it has EVERYTHING you need and more), you still don't get the impression you step into somebody else's life. My mother from Switzerland was amazed about how well equipped the kitchen is... The house was very clean too.

For the kids there is plenty to do: power wheels (the boys loved every minute), tree swings, toys, baseball set (and lots of space to play) etc. We die s'mores over the fire pit. We did not even have to buy marshmallows, chocolate and cookies, sticks: everything was ready to be used on the dining table.

We would highly recommend staying at Karon and Rod's house. Thank you for your hospitality.

Family vacation

This was an amazing house with great space in and out of the house and a lot to do for kids. Great extra family room and kitchen in the basement to make the house feel even more spacious. There was nothing this house was missing.

Owner's Response: So glad your group enjoyed your visit to the Lake House. To clarify, the tri-level home has a lower level but not a basement. The different levels allows families to spread out and gives the feeling of a lot of space.

Excellent Home

  • 5 of 5
We had a truly wonderful stay at the house. We had 5 adults and 4 children, ranging in age from 5 months to 6 years. It was great for all of us. The house was large and spread out so we were not tripping over each other. The large downstairs kitchen was great for preparing meals, and having an upstairs kitchen was very convenient for preparing middle of the night bottles. The house was clean and the listing was accurate, everything you need is provided. The kids loved the swings, power wheels, toys, paddle boat, and all the grass to run around on. The location was great for visiting the beach, Notre Dame, Fernwood Botanical Gardens, etc. We really enjoyed our week at the house and made great memories.

Excellent Home for family Reunion

Karon and Rod's home was exactly as advertised. We used the home as a base for our son's wedding in Niles and it worked perfectly. Hopefully the opportunity will arise where we can stay there again. Thank You !!

Even Better Than I Thought...

  • 5 of 5
Your, hosts, Rod and Karon could not have been more gracious and accommodating.. This house worked so well with our family, it was like 2 homes in one... When the kids and grandkids were their, the lower level family room and fully equipped kitchen were so convenient. I was able to make my sides and prepare our rib dinner in the lower level kitchen and keep the mess off the main kitchen, the 11 of us were able to eat at one table. When things were cleaned up, the kids had a sleepover and had such a good time.. There was so much room for all of us outside, and the kids loved the power wheels..
This house looks awesome on line, but is even better when you get there..
Thank you again, Karon and Rod.. We will be back...
