About Denise Ward

We are a family of four, but since our oldest daughter is about to graduate from college and the youngest daughter is two years from being a college graduate, we are definitely 'empty-nesters'. We live an hour and a half away from the house, so we try to spend time there as much as we can.

Denise Ward purchased this house in 2010

Why Denise Ward chose Tow

We bought this property because we love the view, the size of the home and the fact that when we are there, we can truly leave our hectic lives behind. We loved the homey feel of the house with the old knotty pine siding in the original rooms. The house needed some TLC, but as a family we had fun cleaning, painting and decorating. Our neighbors are the best and we love spending time with them when we are at the house.

What makes this house unique

We absolutely love the back porch. The breeze always seems to be blowing, so it is always pleasant to sit out on the porch and just unwind.

There are also plenty of games to play inside and outside. There is a croquet game, bocci ball, horseshoes, and a volleyball net that can be used.

Amazing experience

  • 5 of 5

This was a weekend to remember! Denise and her husband had everything we could possible need and then some. Even when we forgot the little things she was able to come to the rescue. It was an absolute quiet and restful weekend. The neighbors were even amazing inviting us over to swim in their beach area and letting us barrow a gas can. Would recommend this place again and plan to stay in the future. Thank you again for an amazing weekend.

Property was exactly as advertised

  • 5 of 5

I spent a 3-day weekend at Blue Haven with my sister and 3 of my best girlfriends from high school. We spent a relaxing weekend fishing, watching movies, and playing games. We appreciated the provided games and hammocks. We even braved the canoe out to the little was a hilarious adventure. We had a lovely time at the nearby Fall Creek Winery with a tour and tasting.

The only thing we would have liked would have been a walkway from the deck to the dock, or at least a step ladder to get up on the dock. Otherwise, we had a wonderful time and look forward to a future stay.

Great Place To Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed at Blue Haven this past weekend and had a wonderful time. The house is well equipped with any pot, appliance, utensil, plates, serving ware, etc. you could possibly need. There was plenty of dining space for everyone. The beds were all comfortable. Our favorite place to congregate was in the front room, where you could sit and watch the lake, seeing the boat traffic go by. We also fed the hummingbirds and enjoyed watching them. Denise was awesome to work with. We would love to return.

Clean and close to the water!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. The house was very spacious with two living areas, and the beds were comfortable. LOTS of linens, dishes, etc. It had everything we needed. The lake was very quiet, even on the weekend. We enjoyed ourselves!

Owner's Response: I am thrilled that you had such a good time. Yes, the house is loaded with items you need. When my family spends time out there, we like it to feel more like home than just a place to sleep. I hope you will consider coming back.
