60th Anniversary

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this wonderful home for my parents 60th wedding anniversary, gathering of 25 family members. Barry was extremely terrific to deal with. He responded so quickly to any questions and was easily accessible for any questions during our stay. The home was well equipped with everything needed, very comfortable for a large group and the dock overlooking the lake was a wonderful gathering place. I highly recommend this property and owner!!

Memorial Day weekend

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 20+ people stay here for Memorial Day weekend. Great place for large families. We all had a wonderful time.Roasting marshmallows in the fire pit. Soaking in the outdoor hot tub which overlooks the lake or if it rains,you can use the indoor hot tub. Plenty of parking available. Twelve minute drive to Hawks Falls where you can take a short and easy hike to enjoy the waterfalls. Barry was terrific . Very quick response to any questions we had. Wish I could have stayed longer.

"Life is Good"

  • 5 of 5

Excellent experience for my group. All amenities as promised. Location is perfect, walk to Shenanigans was nice bonus. Plenty of parking and close to Golf courses.The view you see in the photo here is basically the view from hot tub which got plenty of use it's a setting on the lake with firepit to the right for campfires and you can sit back lift up a drink and watch your crew kayak away up the lake and feel "life is good moment". Owner Barry was very accommodating and returned my text instantly and was very helpful.This was my 2nd time using this properties first time was a family reunion and this time golf/Bachelor party and it was perfect both times highly recommend this property.

Excellent for a retreat with family and friends!

  • 5 of 5

Barry's property was perfect for our winter retreat for 20-25 people! The pros WAY outweigh the tiny blips of cons. The property suited us very well for our potlucks and group discussions. The two houses were also convenient in that folks who wanted to peace and quiet or to go to bed early could just walk down to the cottage. The snow-covered frozen lake was beautiful! Barry and his wife were responsive and great to work with as well!

Highly recommend!

Pros: hot tub, smart TV (you can log into Netflix), frozen lake out back, two separate houses, only 20 min from Jack Frost ski area, lots of couches and blankets everywhere, parking was easy, property easy to find, lock box was really convenient, owners were prepared for weather (salt, etc.), responded quickly to texts, kitchens were clean and well stocked, sleeps accurate amount of people advertised (25).

Cons: spread out showers so that hot water doesn't run out; we had a morning of only cold water in the showers, temperature was cold downstairs and hot upstairs, some of the mattresses were saggy.

Great place for a family gathering!

  • 5 of 5

We had me and 3 of my siblings' families for a total of 20 people in the house comfortably. The two house setup worked great for our needs. The owner was a pleasure to deal with. He was very responsive throughout the entire process.
