Incredible in every way

  • 5 of 5

We have just spent a month at Jim's Lake House. It was most relaxing and a perfect getaway. It is incredible in every way. Jim is a great host and he makes sure you feel right at home. We couldn't have asked for anything different all was excellent. Thanks for a great stay.

Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

We just got Married at Jim's lake house and couldn't have had a better weekend! The house/yard/dock/lake were the perfect setting for our intimate wedding weekend. Jim is a truly gracious host and all of our guests were remarking on how beautiful the house was and how comfortable they all felt. We definitely felt like it was "our" house when we were packing up on Sunday. This will definitely be an anniversary spot in the future! Thank you Jim
