1st of all the pictures posted, while great, do not do the house and property justice. Over the last several years, we have used home away (and other home rental sites) stayed in 13 different rentals, this house being 14. And #14 is by far our favorite!
What we look for - cleanliness, ample room (bed & bathrooms) for myself, hubby, son + girlfriend, daughter, son in law & 4 grandkids, dock or access to a dock for our 2 boats, reasonably priced boat trailer parking for the week, stores nearby, but somewhat private home, kitchen/cooking space, deck space, air control, (some govern this & you can't turn up or down) and reasonable check in/out procedures.
This home met All of our needs/wants and THEN SOME!!
Very Clean! Had a chance to meet the sweetest little cleaning crew as we were leaving and they were very eager to ask how our stay was and if they needed to do anything better, to which I replied, Nope, it was Perfect! Plenty of beds for our large crew, everyone had a Very Comfortable Bed, we all agreed our 1st morning on them being the most comfy beds we've had throughout all of our home rental stays. 4 modern well equipped bathrooms made for a much happier family!
For us, a biggie here - Not only was there a Private dock included with the home/property, it was large enough for our pontoon & bass boat, with plenty of play room left, for the kids to jump and swim. Also, stairs all the way down to the dock, some places have just a steep bank or path.
AND...we could park our boat trailers in the driveway!! + all of our vehicles with plenty of room to spare!! Grocery store less than 10 mins away. Wooded private property was Perfect, where you have a neighbor or 2 somewhere in the distance, but ya don't know it.
Saw reviews there weren't very many utensils, pots & pans etc.. so we brought some from home, but there was no need. We fixed gravy, biscuits, eggs, sausage & bacon every morning, and cooked supper every night, using what was supplied, 2 nights we used the large, user friendly grill, conveniently located off the kitchen. Perfect porches & deck space!! Beautifully constructed! Tiki torches & citronella candles provided to keep evening relaxing deck time enjoyable! We controlled AC. The most uncomplicated check in/out procedures EVER!
Having questions about boat ramps, parking and such, we communicated with the home owner, Mr. Bing, who was very gracious, polite and quick to respond.
Oh...also... Great WiFi spee
Best Lake Vacation So Far!!!
