weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

Perfect weekend for our weekend getaway. Close to downtown and plenty to do around the house. House was stocked with the little things that you don't think to bring, which was great!

Awesome time!

  • 5 of 5

We had a bachelor party at the moon lake house and it was a great time! Mary was a great host. They waited up to meet us even though we had a late arrival and we're ready to answer any questions. They gave us our space, but we're ready to help if needed.

The house was fantastic. Right on the lake, plenty of yard games, and slept a number of us comfortably. It's a quick ride to down town too.

I would go again and highly recommend to friends and family.

Absolute beautiful house and property!!

  • 5 of 5

Hello, I stayed at the lake house with about 18 girls for my sisters bachelorette party, the house and property are absolutely beautiful! We had plenty of room for all the girls, the house had everything we needed for the weekend with exception to the food, which was easy to get with a quick ride into town. We all had an absolute fabulous time. When setting up our weekend I had the pleasure to talk to Mary and she was and is a wonderful person, and I thank you so very much for letting us stay at your beautiful house. We defenitly will be back again!!

If I could give more then 5 stars I would!!

a beautiful home and the perfect wedding spot!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were married on this property a few months ago and we haven't stopped hearing from everyone (guests, family, vendors) how amazing our venue was. We had been looking for a space that was full of natural beauty and anything but a cookie-cutter kind of wedding, and that's exactly what we got! We couldn't have asked for a more gracious owner than Mary. The place was in great condition when we arrived (Mary and her husband had also done a lot of work to repaint and make upgrades to the property knowing there were going to be a few upcoming weddings that Fall) and they continued to maintain the property throughout the week so everything was at its finest for the wedding day. My family stayed for a full week and we had a great time playing lawn games, kayaking, grilling, decorating, and enjoying the beautiful outdoors all together before the wedding day. Mary was always available if we needed her and was so flexible in accomodating some of our special requests, and she was such a joy to have been in communication with in the months leading up to our stay. She truly cared that we got everything out of the experience we had been hoping for and treated us like we were a part of her family.

A couple favorite moments I wanted to mention (though there are so many!) were kayaking around the corner to get lunch at a nearby restaurant (lake local) on the water, and looking out on my wedding day to see people had lined up chairs on the hill and were watching the sunset with a glass of wine, admiring the beautiful scenery.

We absolutely would recommend this to others as a wedding venue or a vacation getaway - we want to go back with our families and enjoy the place all over again for a reunion! Thanks so much again to Mary and her husband for everything they did to help our wedding and our week turn out so fantastic.

Outstanding Group Rental

  • 5 of 5

Moon's Lakehouse was an amazing venue for a bachelor party I hosted in June 2016. The house slept 13 of us comfortably, and had a ton of room both inside and out for card games, lawn games, tennis, volleyball etc. The view is gorgeous and the location couldn't be more convenient for a short ride to downtown, local golf courses and restaurants. Mary was super responsive and made the logistics a breeze. My only hesitation in recommending Moon's Lakehouse is not wanting it to be all booked up for my return trip next year!
