Relaxing Stay

  • 3 of 5

Spent the weekend here with 4 couples. Overall, we had a very relaxing time.

Positives:

The house is in a great community, nestled between lots of small lakes. There is a small pool and tennis courts a short 2 minute drive away. The grill and campfire were superb. We bought food at the nearby Walmart and grilled all weekend long. The house comes stocked with all the dining / grilling utensils you could imagine. There's a ping pong table which was a lot of fun too.

Negatives:

Although our stay was really fun, the reason for the 2 missing stars is that the house could have been cleaner, and although there were bedsheets...there were not enough comforters for each bedroom. I strongly recommend bringing your own comforters and additional pillows. There were tons of mosquitos and all sorts of bugs in the house too...but this is to be expected at a lakehouse.

Unfortunately the path to the lake behind the house is a bit overgrown. Also, if you plan on bringing your dog, keep him/her contained to the porch as there was a lot of broken glass from prior visitors on the grass.

The owner was a pleasure to deal with, and made the transaction a very smooth and enjoyable process. He was always responsive to emails, and easy to get in touch with.

I would definitely stay here again, and would recommend it to friends. Just make sure to come prepared with bug spray, pillows and comforters. Thanks Avi, for a really relaxing weekend getaway.

Owner's Response: I'm glad you have a good time. I haven't been up since March but will replace the missing pillows and comforters as I'm not sure where they have disappeared. I will make sure the care taker trims the path to the lake and picks up the broken glass. One of the tenants in June broke the screen door to the deck so I guess the bugs are coming in the house when you leave the door open. Avi

Spent my 30th birthday here

  • 5 of 5

My family and I decided to do something different for my birthday so we decided to stay here. The property is exactly like the pictures. We made a campfire every night and went fishing everyday (even tho no one caught anything) The neighbors were very friendly but the thing that I will always remember is the deers.They ate food out of our hands and they were very nice we even named one that we loved the most (Periwinkle)We hated to leave!!! If u ever stay here u would love it too......please say hi and take care of Periwinkle he loves corn.lol.Thank you Ave.

Amazing back to nature retreat

  • 5 of 5

The property is very large with breathtaking view of the lake.

The house layout is brilliant ... So much family space while maintaining ample private space to collect your thoughts.

We hand fed deers almost every morning and evening.

Paradise 70min from home.

Good blue colar style city retreat

  • 3 of 5

It was just worth the money I paid but I would have been upset if I had paid list price. It was in need of a light cleaning; the lake was a pond but did have fish. The bedroom you would like to use was up a flight of stairs that were at a 45 degree angle so it was impractical to use. It was nice to see the dear in the yard daily and not be far from town. The bad was the travel to the Laundry mat not in the best area of town.
