Wonderful get-away

  • 5 of 5

Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The cabin had everything we needed to just relax and the setting was incredibly peaceful yet we were just a short drive to all sorts of advendures including white water rafting, Rickets Glen State Park and more. My husband and son loved fishing both on the dock and in the canoe and we all loved spending evenings playing board games. Great vacation for all of us!

We love to stay at the lake house. Plenty of room for all of us. Right on the lake which is perfect for fishing & hanging on the dock.

Peace of Heaven at Lily Lake

  • 5 of 5

This vacation home along with it's beautiful setting gets five stars in my book. The home is a very comfortable 4 bedroom equipped with everything a family needs for a lake retreat. The home sits up on a hill with a sunroom/enclosed porch that over looks beautiful Lily Lake and your own private dock for fishing and swimming. Across the lake is a mountain view that adds to the uniqueness of the setting. My family enjoyed hiking around the lake, swimming, kayaking and fishing. We made a trip in to town on the day that we arrived for groceries and found everything else we needed onsite. The Kitchen was well equipped for all our needs. The Owner was very responsive in booking the home and answering all questions. We had such a nice time that we are returning in July of 2015 with just one change, we booked the home for two weeks instead of one.
