Family Reunion in July 2011
We enjoyed this special home in July of 2011, with a family reunion of 18 people of all ages. We were able to bring our small wood runabout to use on the lake and enjoyed tubing and water skiing. There is a wonderful deck by the water which we enjoyed and the swimming was great, the water cool and clear. The home is well appointed and very large, it was very easy to gather together or find a quiet place to enjoy some solitude. There are wonderful porches and patios outside and a great porch swings to enjoy. This is a wonderful place for a family to gather - truly a lovely and peaceful spot with a large yard and great places to play ! The owners cherish this home so be prepared to care for it well if you choose to stay. I promise it is worth it....we had a wonderful time and will have great memories of this family reunion for many years to come.
Thanks for a great week at your home on Basham Lake. We all (three
generations: parents, 3 children and spouses and 9 grandchildren) loved
our time there and the house and grounds were great! The kids loved the
fishing - everyone caught something and our 9 yr old granddaughter
caught a 3 pound bass off the dock using worms as bait! We also enjoyed
the many attractions in the area including Gillette Castle and Devil's
Hopyard Park. Again, thanks for a great week!
