Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great time in your rental home.Our grand kids for an over nighter and enjoyed the sand, finding shells, fishing & playing in the water. Then our friends came for a few days. We golfed, biked the kal-haven trail, and enjoyed the water and your spacious home. Great views of the water-well supplied with everything we needed to feel at home for a week and we had great weather.

Wonderful Rental!!!

  • 5 of 5

WHAT A GREAT PLACE!!!! My family of 11 stayed here for a week and couldn't have had a better time. The house was big enough to handle everyone and cozy to make us feel at home. There is everything in this home to make ones stay enjoyable and relaxing. The kitchen is WELL equipped to handle any chefs needs(we ate all our meals at the house)and only used a portion of all the pots and spices that are available.

The owner takes pride in his house and property and it shows. He was very helpful and willing to go out of his way to make sure our stay was enjoyable.

The views were great and the paddle boat,kayaks and pontoon boat were used by the entire family. There was always something to do ie. Ping-Pong,darts,bean bag toss,vidoes,or just enjoying watching the grandkids swimming or playing on the beach.

This house make our stay a truly wonderful vacation and one that we'll be coming back to.

Thx Mark for letting my family use your great house.

We had a truly relaxing weekend at your cozy home. Despite the cold weather, we still took a short ride around the lake each day. We enjoyed warming by the fire, Yatzee around the table and even some time on Mario Cart! Thanks for renting out your home for others to enjoy!

Dear Mark

The time sure flies by here. So sad to leave your beautiful home. Our family had the best week ever catching frogs and relaxing by the lake. The sunsets were my personal favorite. What a vacation. Good Lord willing, we'll be back!
