Guestbook comments from the manager

We really LOVED staying at your home…a great time!



More amenities than we knew what do do with. Fishing Poles, rafts, floats, boat dock. Set us up with a great pontoon rental right in the neighborhood (3 minutes from property) Playground for children was great with NEW equipment for our little ones. Ping Pong, Pool table, and Big Buck hunter by the downstairs bar. DVD's galore for adults and children.



We held a corporate retreat here with families and it was perfect for everyone. Kids could escape. Adults conducted business. More entertaining areas than one could imagine.



Trampoline out back and over an acre of manicured grass area for kids to play. Amazing out door grilling areas with the most beautiful sunset on the lake we have ever seen.



Definitely will rent again.

The golf cart was a great added amenity so we could have transportation for little ones to and from park a few hundred yards away. Great stay. We really enjoyed the place.

Nice place on the lake

  • 4 of 5

Everything was pretty much as advertised. The neighborhood is beautiful and quiet. The property is large and serene. The boat dock is a great place to hang out and swim. The house is great and we were able to play music from our phones, cook our meals, and had plenty of room for a party of 10 adults. The games in the game room have gotten a little old and require some care and maintenance but that was the only hiccup.

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

This home easily accommodated all 10 of us and Ben was an on site most helpful host! He went above and beyond. We never ran out of things to do. Besides the lake fun and handy dock, we had all the "games" downstairs, the park nearby, a golf course, deer feeding from the golf cart, and a wonderful covered balcony/porch to sit on in the evenings and early mornings and watch the sunset over the lake and hang out.

Family Vacation on the Lake

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time at this property and pulled off a 22 person family celebration enjoying skiing, boating, grilling and hanging out at the lake house. We also had a wedding there and this place had ample room to support 50+ folks for outdoor seating. The home is well supplied and provides a nice separate game and entertainment basement area to let the tired older folks go to sleep upstairs. The game room is a bit worn from the many partiers who have stayed, but overall we loved the place, the views, the location, the boat dock and the well stocked kitchen. The owner, Ben, was very supportive and assisted when we needed it. Thanks for the memories!

Great location for a large family weekend!

  • 4 of 5

This house was in the perfect location for our large family (+20) to enjoy a four day weekend at the lake. We were able to play in the lake or chill at the house throughout the day and never had to drive. The kids were able to hang out downstairs and play pool in the evenings. Watching the deer in the morning and evenings was an added bonus. We had a lovely family weekend.

Nice Big House with Beautiful View

  • 4 of 5

We had our family reunion in June 2017 at this house for three nights. The house was just the right size for 6 adults and 4 children. We all enjoyed the game room and the children enjoyed watching cartoons on the 80" TV. My husband and I enjoyed drinking coffee on the huge porch and watching the deer in the morning. The house is nice, but does need some TLC. The walls throughout the house are really scuffed up. Duck tape was on the shuffle board game. Be sure to make a list of the damages when you get to the house and send to the owner. When we arrived the golf cart was not at the house. I had to contact the property manager to ask where it was located because the owner didn't answer the text I sent him. The owner did text and bring the golf cart to the house later. The house is well stocked with spices, pans, dishes, towels, etc. We did run out of trash compact bags the second full day we were there and the owner didn't bring any more as requested. We had to use a huge 33 gallon trash bag that wouldn't fit in the compactor so it sat on the kitchen floor. The community pool is closed on Mondays for maintenance. The closest boat/water ski rental place only has two waverunners to rent. They were reserved so we couldn't rent one. The other rental outfit was too far away. The day we left for home, 8 out of 10 of us got sick. We stayed at the house, swam in the pool and the lake, and ate at the restaurant, Gnarly Gar. One of these activities made us ill.
