Every summer my husband and I vacations with our grown daughter, son, and their families. Always on a lake. Over the years we have stayed in many different types of lake houses. We always go to a different house for the fun of a new experience. The last time we rented McNerney Island was in 2011. It is the first lake house we ever returned to. I always remembered the fun the grand kids and the dogs had on the island. Being the only house on the island they had freedom to run and enjoy the outdoors. The lake is beautiful. It's a walk out into the water all around the island. This is great for the safety of the kids and dogs. The TV doesn't get turned on with so many outdoor things to do. We couldn't help but to relax in the sun. I got up by six every morning walked around the island a few times with the dogs. These walks ended by climbing the stairs to the deck on top of the house over looking the lake. The dogs loved it up there as much as I did. You look out and everything is quiet.
It is the perfect fisherman's cabin that has been around for a while. I can image some people would have a problem seeing why I would give it a five star rating. It's for the fun, privacy, relaxation the island offers. The house gives you all you really need. We cooked almost every meal there. What we needed we had.
The five star rating is also for Joe the caretaker and Patrick the owner. Joe helped us with what ever we needed. He was friendly and patient with us. Patrick as well was helpful and answered all our questions.
