About the property

Waterfront home with 5 bedroom, 2 full bathrooms, sleeps 16

Enjoy this spacious and very clean, 2100-square-foot home on Palmer Lake. Palmer Lake is a 444-acre, all-sport, family-oriented lake. There is 100 feet of sandy-bottom lake frontage and a large side yard for many activities. Two private docks are conveniently located on the property for fishing or docking your boat. The lake is great for boating, water skiing, jet skiing, fishing, ice fishing, and much more.

The home is great for families looking to reunite or a couple looking to escape the city for a long weekend. It has two sitting areas overlooking the lake, one for family gatherings and one for privacy. A game room is great for the kids. Five private bedrooms sleep 16 people comfortably. The large kitchen and eating area overlook the lake and open out to a lakefront sitting area!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Best "total package" we've encountered! Nice house, perfect setting (close to lake, quiet street, nice neighbors), very nice lake.

Your internet picture and advertisement do not do your property justice! We were quite pleasantly surprised when we arrived and wouldn't hesitate to rent this property again. Thanks so much for sharing it with us!

Great Family Friendly Lake House!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 8 (5 adults and 3 kids) stayed at the lake house and had a wonderful time. The place was even better than the pictures. It had plenty of room and was set-up great. The game room was jam packed with about every boardgame imaginable, the kids loved watching DVDs and playing games in there during the one stormy morning. The kitchen was fully stocked with everything we could possibly need. The sandy lake bottom outside the house was awesome, as was the dock for the kids to jump off of. We even headed down to the public beach a few minutes away too. Mark was great to work with. He answered all of my questions ahead of time as to what was available at the house. The lake house guide that Mark and Peggy provided was very comprehensive of the house, the town, the history, things to do, etc.

We would highly recommend this place to our friends and family and consider staying here again.

Great lake house

  • 5 of 5

Our experience at this lake house was great. Our family of 9 adults and 6 grandchildren stayed here and never felt crowded. The house is clean and has everything you might need for a nice waterfront vacation. The water is shallow enough for kids to play in the water which they did, endlessly. We brought some water toys, rented a pontoon and kayaks which added to our fun. This was our third summer vacation at this bakehouse and we will probably rent it again next summer. The owner is very pleasant to deal with, too, and the neighbors are very friendly. Fun vacation!

Perfect Wedding Bridal Party Accommodations

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for the perfect location for our family and other members of the bridal party to stay and enjoy our daughter's wedding in nearby Sherwood. The lake was beautiful and the house was perfect for all of us to spread out and have space yet enjoy being together in the large common areas. The fully stocked kitchen was also very helpful for preparing meals as well as the food for the reception. We enjoyed making some great family memories! Thank you again, The Higley Family

Great summer vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This lake house was everything we had hoped it would be. We came back this year because last year's vacation there was so great. The house holds a lot of people and is child friendly. Mark and Peggy are great to work with and quick to respond to questions. The house is clean and well cared for. We will be back next year!

Owner's Response: Andrea - It was great to have you and your family back to our lake house once again. We hope that you will plan on coming back again. We have remodeled the upstairs bathroom and put in wood flooring in the bunk room. We also added another set of bunks in the bunk room for two more beds. See you soon! -- Mark & Peggy
