Great location, relaxing time on the waters edge

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our escape to the Pinetop area. We wanted a place to sit outside and enjoy the cooler weather and have opportunities to go fishing. This home was the answer! We could sit and dine on the large back deck listening to the wind through the trees and watching ducks swim by, and then hop in the canoe at the end of the deck/dock and go paddling off into the large lake. The house is very large with plenty of room for a large family or families....even has a guest house with a bedroom, bath, and kitchenette. The kitchen is both well appointed and well equipped for most cooking needs. This is a great gathering place in a very quiet and gated neighborhood...I can highly recommend it to others!

This rental property is AWESOME!

  • 5 of 5

From start to finish our stay was wonderful. The owners were very responsive to all of our questions as we researched our vacation rental options. We have two young kids and a dog and the property was perfect for our family. The floor plan is very open and comfortable. Our kids loved the deck, water and playing all around the property. The neighborhood is beautiful for walks, bike rides (we brought our own bikes), etc. The property was very clean and the kitchen was fully equipped with everything we needed. A full pet deposit was refunded upon our departure. We will definitely be back!

A brilliant property

  • 5 of 5

This is a spectacular home. It is truly a luxury property and you will feel very much at home. It is spacious and clean. The dock and deck are an adventure. We have been there two different years and plan to return. It is clean, beautiful, well maintained, has everything you could wish for in the kitchen and GOOD beds. What more can you want. Oh, yes, we caught fish.

Great Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a weekend of relaxation on this wonderful property. The location is spectacular...a gated community, great scenery, quiet and peaceful. The house was perfect for our group. Having the casita attached to the main house allowed our 2nd family with kids their own place. We wanted to be on the lake in order for all to enjoy some outdoor activities. The kids played in the leaves, picked pine cones, went for walks and played at the basketball/tennis courts, while the adults spent most of the time on the dock fishing, canoeing, relaxing on the patio or enjoying a camp fire each night.

The fall colors were gorgeous. Location is also close to shopping, sight-seeing and lots of local restaurants to try.

Definitely a memorable weekend for our family!!
