There was so much room for our family; it was a wonderful time of bonding and sharing our time together! The house is cozy, clean, and quiet. The yard and lake are gorgeous! The kitchen is very well stocked. Beds are super comfy. Kelly was more than accommodating and made our experience that much more enjoyable. She answered all my questions in a timely fashion and gave us excellent recommendations for points of interest and restaurants. The townsfolk are very friendly as well! I highly recommend Madison-on-the Lake!

                                                                    Owner's Response:

The deck with it's sunsets, swimming in the lake and sitting on the sun porch listening to the lapping waves were highlights! We took several local excursions with our one year old granddaughter, within half hour. The beautiful Holden Arboretum was a wonderful day trip for all. Great relaxing vacation!

The house provided ample space to socialize as well as have quiet time. We especially enjoyed sitting along the beach and chatting. Fred and Kelly were very easy to work with. We particularly enjoyed learning of their family history by the many photographs displayed throughout the house. Overall, everyone enjoyed this visit and plan to visit again next year.
