We just got back from our first lake vacation. We are a beach family, so this was all new to us! Don is so very, very easy to work with. He answers all questions (even silly ones like "what do you do on a lake vacation?"). He always responded within 12 hours and was very friendly and accommodating. The house is even nicer than the photos. The TV room was our favorite room. The walk down to the lake isn't long and has an easier slope than other houses I saw. Although there are trees by the house, you can still see the lake through them (about 50%) and you can see that from the deck and kitchen table. The grill worked great, we loved cooking out and eating on the deck at night. The master bed was comfortable, the master bathroom newly renovated (granite). It has a modern, cozy feel through most of the house. He had rafts and chairs we could use. He had board games, books to read, and a guest tackle box and fishing rods. The kids caught several fish off the dock. The dock is set up in an "L" shape which is very nice for younger children...creates a pool like effect so they don't wander too far. It is a shallow walk into the water. Kid wore water shoes (rocky) and it worked great. It's a nice size cove. Weekends have some boaters, waterskiers, and wave runners (kids love the residual waves from that) and weekdays are more quiet. The dock is large enough to bring chairs on. Dock gets sun, but most of the land is in shade. Very cool trees that great a nice roof over you when sitting around the fire. The fire pit is placed perfectly, you are about 12 feet from the water and about 3 feet up from it. LOVED sitting by the fire looking at the lake. Hammock to lie on overlooking lake also. VERY relaxing vacation. Our weather was a little chilly in the beginning, and I wish we had rented a boat for 3-4 days, but other than that, it was perfect for us. Kitchen has many utensils, pots, etc.
