Perfect lake vacation

  • 5 of 5

Great house with fabulous views. 3 generation family vacation. Kids ranged from 3yrs to 17 yrs, something for every age. Rented a pontoon boat went "tubing", to the near by sand bar and took several lake cruises. 94 yr old Great Grandmother enjoyed an afternoon sitting on the deck watching all the activities. This is our 7th year vacationing at this lake, but first time at this property. The house is bright, clean and has everything needed for a relaxing week on the Lake. Nice quiet area, but close to activities, grocery stores, and mini golf. We are hoping to return next summer.

A home away from home with the most perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous time on our family vacation to Yencho Lake House. We immediately felt at home when we arrived. The house was bright and inviting, clean and well appointed. There was just about every pot, pan, utensil you could possibly need and a cabinet full of spices and oils. It made it so easy to cook dinner for our clan. The location is amazing! We rented kayaks, a pontoon boat and a canoe. We sat by the fire pit making smores several nights. The kids are already asking when we can come back!!

great family get-together!

  • 5 of 5

beautiful, Lakefront house. We had 9 adults and two small children and we all had so much fun. sitting on the beach playing in the sand with the kids (huge bucket of beach toys provided), taking sunset cruises in our pontoon boat, playing pool, sitting by the campfire roasting marshmallows. the house was very clean and well-appointed. The grounds were nicely landscaped too. We enjoyed meals on the huge deck, too. We had plenty of room to park our 5 cars. the air-conditioning worked great to keep us comfortable inside. We loved the huge dining table so we could all sit together for meals. We treasure our long family weekend together every year and will have many wonderful memories of our time at the Yencho Lake House. Thank you Kristen and Dave!

Super-Refreshing Getaway for our Group!

  • 5 of 5

Thanks to Dave and Kristen for sharing their wonderful home. It was a perfect setting for our group getaway of Bible Study coordinators from our church. We had the best fun, food, and fellowship this side of heaven! And the lake house was so conducive to our needs, offering beautiful views of Lake Winnisquam and a peaceful environment for prayer and reflection. Times around the extra large dining table and around the firepit overlooking the lake were special, providing memories we'll all cherish. A couple from our group even enjoyed a swim in the crystal clear waters of the lake. Perhaps the only way to improve our time together would be to stay longer (we only had the weekend). Thanks again!

Better than expected!

  • 5 of 5

This lake house retreat was perfect for our three generation family of eight! It was close enough to buy groceries, etc., but far enough away to enjoy the calm and quiet of the lake. Everything was clean, organized and well appointed. The owner's were great responding to any questions we had. Our grandson's loved the dock and beach area, we loved the deck and comfortable seating areas inside and out. All beds were comfortable. Kitchen was easy to work in with multiple people doing their tasks. Loved that many items were provided such a paper products, spices, etc., we in turn, left other items for the next group. The vote was unanimous, we all want to return!

Our Lake Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a marvelous vacation in this beautiful home. The view was spectacular!

Just wonderful to sit on the lovely deck and behold God's handiwork. Our whole

family was able to be with us and we were all very comfortable. The house is

very well equipped with kitchen items. Dave and Kristen were very helpful in

all the literature sent to us before our arrival, so we had everything we needed.

We would definitely recommend this property.
