Relaxing, fun, and thoroughly enjoyable

  • 5 of 5
My girlfriends and I gathered here from different parts of the county to reconnect and spend some time together after too many years of being apart. Rick and Jan were friendly and attentive in their email and phone conversations, and with this being my first VRBO experience, were patient and knowledgeable as they helped me through the process. When the first lady arrived ahead of the rest of us, she texted: "This place is so awesome! Hurry up!" She did not over-state in the least. The home was neat and unassuming from the road entrance, but then it went to amazing as soon as we walked in the door.

We loved the big & open living room, dining room, kitchen, and deck where we spent most of our time when we weren't on/in the lake or sunning/fishing on the grass and dock. We didn't even use the big living area downstairs! It was cloudy and drizzly during the mornings and afternoons except for one day, so we spent that day outside and in the water as long as possible. The water temp was okay even that early in the summer. We really enjoyed the kayak and peddle boat too! There are lawn chairs and tubes for using outside, and the afternoon on the lawn enjoying the sun and the lake and the easy conversation was just a little bit of what it's all about. And even on the chilly and slightly drizzly mornings, taking the kayak out on the calm, quiet water is a peaceful way to start the day and appreciate the beauty in life, which this property has in abundance. We also saw deer, heron, osprey, eagles, loons...

Everything that we needed was in the kitchen and we prepared some wonderful meals together. The gas fireplace was a bit of a challenge, but the caretaker and owners did everything they could to get it working as soon as possible. (A very minor ripple in paradise.) Everyone said they slept well except the gal who was in the far basement bedroom who said the bed wasn't comfy so she used the trundle mattress on the floor in there instead. The other two beds and even the bed in the laundry room were very comfortable though.

The only thing missing was a designated fire pit, but I wouldn't be surprised if one hasn't been put in by now. I was told that an outdoor shower was built right after we left and we all think that will be quite a bonus for the next time we visit. All in all this is a beautiful and welcoming home in an amazing setting. We enjoyed our stay even more than we anticipated, and it's unanimous that we want to return in 2016!

Mother nature at her best!

  • 5 of 5
We arrived about 4:30 on Saturday evening, walked over the front threshold right into a scarlet sunset! It captured our breath and hearts. After quietly closing the front door, we were drawn to the window, where we stood for 30 minutes enjoying its beauty. It wasn't until the sunset had completely faded that we retrieved the luggage from the car. The rest of our stay was an extension of the sunset moment, peaking with a light snow flurry as we prepared to depart. Mother nature had sprinkled us with her powder sugar sweetness.
The home is well designed, accommodating both large and small groups. All necessary amenities were available. The owners are a pleasure to work with. Business transactions were easy and seamless. We frequent many vacation rentals throughout the country and this is by far the best.
