Enjoyed ! Beautiful Location

  • 4 of 5

Well equipped house with most things anyone would need, and grilling and campfire supplies, boating equipment etc.Lake views, few steps to lake, good privacy. Bathroom on each of three levels was convenient.

Good treasure hunting experience to find the hidden light/bulb switches ;)

One big trouble we had with the neighbor's dogs . We couldn't sit out peacefully as they were roaming around our house.

Beautiful location. Loved the house.

  • 5 of 5

We were so happy to find this beautiful home on the lakefront was just as promised, and the owners were great to interact with. The property was clean and well-maintained. Definitely recommend. Would be ideal for two families -- already planning to return with my brother and family sometime to share the house and the area with them.

Family Summer Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Everything about our vacation here was fabulous!!!! Julie and Peter are so pleasant to deal with! The location is ideal, the place was clean and had everything you needed for a perfect stay. There was four adults and 3 children (aged 5, 9 and 2) in our party ... and every single one of us had an absolute blast. The swimming area was perfect for our 5 year old to learn to swim. Our only disappointment was that we did not book for a second week!!!! We would highly recommend this place for families with young children who are looking to get away from it all.

Great Summer Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My family vacationed at this beautiful Lake House in August 2011. Peter & Julie rented their home to us on such short notice and were very pleasant to deal with. The home is exactly as you see in the pictures. Far enough from attractions to enjoy the peace and quiet of the lake, but close enough to enjoy all the surrounding area has to offer. Best wishes to Peter & Julie on their home away from home.

Great house

  • 5 of 5

We were very impressed with the house. Went up there for a ski trip with some friends and stayed here. It was very clean and well kept. 3 bathrooms was a big plus. Will definitely stay here again!

Superb...May 2010

  • 5 of 5

This property is better than the photos would suggest. It is extremely roomy, very well equipped, and a joy to spend time at. It really has the feel of "home."

It is situated on what must be a couple of lakefront acres, in an area that is only lightly populated with other dwellings. Overall, an incredible location.

We were delighted to find high quality king sized beds, hand held showers, and numerous other thoughtful touches.

We hope to return often, and will have a very short list of things we must remember to bring along. A Jenn-Air range, a wonderful fireplace, comfortable seating, dual TV's with "DishTV" satellite service; it's all there.

No 'wi-fi' but somehow we got by without it.

Tracfone service and other cell phone service was fine.

An A+++ rating from us.
