I personally custom built this fabulous vacation home for our family and friends. We are a busy family of 5. I wanted a place to get away from the chaos of our 'normal' Monday thru Sunday days. This is a place we can go with our children, extended families, our pets, and our friends to reconnect with each other, relax and enjoy all four seasons of the year indoors and outdoors. Once we pull into the driveway and see the house and lake, we feel refreshed and relaxed. It is important that we bring our pets when we vacation so we welcome and encourage you to bring your (well behaved) pets along on your vacation.

The location is beautiful and so many things to do no matter what the season is! This is a 'home' not just another rental property! You will feel like you are staying in a home when you are here. Warm, inviting decor. Room for entertaining. This is a place to reconnect with each other, wonderful memories to be made. Enjoy the area with the people you love!
Beautiful Lake! Relaxing. Feels like a home not a rental property. So many activities on and off the lake. Absolutely love the location. You will not feel like a tourist, you will feel like you belong here, you will feel like this is your home during your stay.

Thank you for sharing your lovely home with us! It was a perfect getaway here for my bachelorette party!
Soon to be Mrs. Allison.........
Our multigenerational vacation was a huge success! With the oldest in our group in their 60s and the youngest less than a year old we found everything that we needed to ensure a fantastic stay. The fire pit was awesome and the kids (of all ages) loved making s'mores around the fire pit at night. The boating was excellent and the fishing fun. Dawn and Larry were incredibly responsive and helpful during our stay. Larry even met us when we arrived and took us on a tour - fantastic owners, super friendly, and a pleasure to rent from! Our family has never done a trip like this before and it seems like the beginning of a wonderful new tradition. Many thanks to the Bayers for sharing their lovely property with us!
What a perfect place and home for our first grown up vacation with our kids. The number of baths and bedrooms were perfect for us. We all had our space with modern bath facilities. The sand out front was perfect for us with our one year old grandchild. The family dogs had a great week also. The A/C was so appreciated during a hot week. Kitchen and laundry facilities was first rate. Can't wait to do it again with our adult kids next year. Thanks Dawn.
We had family in from California to Illinois and in age range from 2 months to 84 years old and we all had a blast! The home is remarkably well stocked - dishes, towels, sheets, appliance, washers/dryers, silverware, glasses and even paper products. Even the wood pile for the fire pit was ample! It was easy to find and extremely clean when we arrived. The patio has plenty of tables and chairs and the outside refrigerator was perfect for adult beverages as was the wine refrigerator indoors. With four bathrooms, there was never an issue of having to wait your turn. Plus there is tons and tons of closet space!! We spent the entire week and enjoyed every minute. As the listing states, the internet availability is spotty, but who cares when you have so many other fun things to do!! We played games inside and badmitten outside, went to the flea market in town, had relaxing evenings on the patio and fun at the fire pit in the evenings. The weather was a bit on the cool side some days so we didn't even try to access the lake but that was fine with us as well. A boat would be helpful if you feel like you want to get to the big lake but there is also a public beach a very short car ride away. We didn't miss not having a boat at all but next time we might try to rent one for a day or two from the nearby marina. The owners are extremely helpful and gracious and have done an outstanding job of making their home enjoyable for everyone's use. Thanks so much! We had a blast!!!
This is the second year my family has stayed here and it is a great place for a family vacation. We had dogs, babies, adults and everyone was comfortable. The boat is showing a little wear but most of our issues with it were due to operator error and Dawn or Larry was very prompt on their response. However a boat is essential to get to the fun spots on the lake! We love this place! If you are going this year make sure you take plenty of bug spray as they can carry you away at times. Thanks for sharing your property with us!
Beautiful home in a beautiful location. I don't want to recommend it to others, but want to keep it a secret just for myself and my family.
This property was perfect for our family holiday vacation. It is easy to find, just off a main road and tucked into the trees along the lake. We took daily walks in the winter wonderland, it was a peaceful, quiet area. You need to be able to do stairs to enter the home. The main floor had heated tile, perfect for our dogs and stocking feet. It easily sleeps 10 without the sofa bed. I agree with the previous writer that the pull out sofa mattress would not be comfortable. We brought a blow up mattress for our daughter and there was plenty of room for that and or sleeping bags. All the bedrooms are generous in space, nice long kitchen table and a gas fireplace. We played lots of games like Texas Hold Em, did jigsaw puzzles and watched the Bears/Packers game. Also, traveled to Tangier Outlet mall and ate at Papas Pizza in Friendship. Kitchen is well stocked with dishes and appliances. We would definitely stay here again and would like to see it in the summer.
