Fantastic home for family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Great, quiet location. Lakeside Dream is a spacious and clean home with lots to do inside. Sandy beach for my kids to have fun. Party deck for sunny reading space. Our dog loved jumping off the dock into the lake! Thanks for the opportunity to stay in your home!

Very clean property with comfortable beds - a big deal for us when sleeping away from home. Well- stocked kitchen, nice lake lot, and we loved the screened in deck.

Just returned from an excellent week at SML. We loved staying at your cottage. Everything was clean and comfortable and the location on the lake perfect. Thanks so much for sharing your lovely home with us.

Was okay

  • 3 of 5

The house was okay except it wasn't exactly what was advertised at the time. For our needs, it didn't work as well for us as it could have but the house itself isn't bad. The neighbors were very friendly. Wasn't really able to fish from the dock. Had to swim more in front of neighbors house because there wasn't really an area in front of the property.

What a beautiful home! My husband and I spent our New Years Eve 9th Anniversary (12-31-04) here and had a wonderful time. We live in the big city and it was great to enjoy a week of quiet with such beautiful views. The fully equipped kitchen made it so easy to plan that quiet anniversary dinner. And my husband loved the lake! Thank you so much for allowing us to spend our special time in your home. We look forward to visiting again real soon.
