Thank you! We had a wonderful time! The house is spacious, very clean and has everything we needed. We will definitely be back!
We are already planning a trip back to this first class home, we had stayed at other places but never like this, this felt like home and not a rental. Despite our last minute decision, the owner and the lake were very helpful and considerate. Picture perfect the kiddos enjoyed the zip line in the woods and stories by the fire. Teens visited camel beach and zip line which is a two day event almost. The adults enjoyed the pool, played tennis and wished for more volleyball nets. The only thing missing was a hottub, but regardless a great place to unwind after eventful days, we kareoked late into the night. Party of six adults two teens and two tots enjoyed your home, Thanks Jennifer for your last min.preparations.
This house was great. The layout is perfect for entertaining. The living room, dinning room, and kitchen are all attached to make one great, GREAT rm. The card table on the loft and the huge deck was an added bonus that worked out very well. Would recommend this house for anyone. We had an awesome weekend and you will too.
My family and I, along with several of my childrens' friends had the pleasure of staying at this wonderful home. From start to end it was absolutely incredible. It was one of the most comfortable homes we ever rented. Everyone had a blast and left with a lot of wonderful memories. I highly recommend this home and greatly enjoyed dealing with the owners, who I found to be very helpful and accommodating.
