My name is Jolene and I grew up in New York City and dreamed about a lakehouse as a little girl. I wanted a place that would be fun and relaxing in the daytime, yet quiet and serene in the evening. This lakehouse is my dream. My family and I have spent many happy hours swimming and boating here.

Jolene Durelli purchased this house in 2006

My son caught his first fish here! And my daughters loved chasing minnows along the beach. We have celebrated many festive family occasions including birthdays, graduations, reunions and wedding anniversaries. Everyone enjoys the property. Because we are located at the west side of the lake, we have spectacular lake views without our homes blocking or distracting the view.

The house sits on a raised double lot affording a panoramic view of the lake with plenty of room for lawn parties. Wonderful older trees provide shade in selected areas.

This was elegant camping in a very nice lakefront house. We spent all of our vacation here outdoors, enjoying the yard and hammock and lake and the boats that the owners had there for our use. We missed only internet connections, but got to read several books instead. A month later, we are still enjoying memories of the gorgeous views of the lake and the sounds of the ducks from the bedroom windows when we awoke each morning. The owners are helpful and friendly and great about giving any information you might need about the area. We loved it here.

This was a delightful getaway vacation. We loved being on direct waterfront. The house is charming and the scenery is so pretty. My favorite was laying on the hammock next to the lake.

Thank you for a wonderful vacation!!
