Wonderful gathering place!

  • 5 of 5

This house is set up for fun on every level. From the wonderful things to do--volleyball, basketball, walking, fishing, ping pong, pool, board games . . . to the huge kitchen and massive dining room table. There was plenty of room for everyone to have a little down time if they needed it and plenty of activities to keep us busy. Donna and her caretakers were really good to us.

This place is amazing. I was blown away as soon as I saw it. It is huge and beautiful and was perfect for me and my family. Loved all the views of the trees and water and the lodge itself. Was super clean and well stocked. Donna was awesome to book with as well. We did not want to leave and can't wait to be back.!

Just what the family ordered

  • 5 of 5

This will be our 8th family reunion.

The first at Reflection Lodge.

With grown children coming from all over the United States and bringing their own children with them... it is unbelievably important to me that the home is as carefree and comfortable as possible.

The kitchen is amazing and fit all of the women comfortably...we all love to cook. The men enjoyed the fire pit and rowing around in the pond. Everyone enjoyed having a comfortable bed to retire to at the end of the night.

This will be the first time that the family requested to return to the Same rental next year... and we plan on doing just that!

A beautiful home with a great owner and caretakers

Great family gathering property!

  • 4 of 5

Our family just spent several days at Reflections Lodge. Other than the hot tub not working when we arrived, everything was terrific. With the help of the hot tub seller, I was able to get it to work during our visit. The pond was a big hit for the fishermen/women in our group. The property was very well maintained and had plenty of room for the different generations to have their space. We would definitely come here again!
