This house is even nicer than it looks in the pics !! Awesome view from the deck ill be back. thanks Sandra !!
We all came from different states to meet here for our family Christmas. The owners made it easy to find with detailed directions. The home was beautifully decorated for Christmas which added to our celebration. Everything you could have possibly wanted or needed in the kitchen was provided. We would definitely come again.
Stayed here for a week in August 2015 and enjoyed the property. Well maintained, quiet, clean, and included everything that we were looking for in our rental. First 5 days was a family vacation with the adults and 3 kids and everyone had fun. The last 2 days was a group of 8 guys and everyone had a great time. We would definitely book it again in the future!
This is a lovely house on a lovely lot. We enjoyed our stay there. There were a few small concerns we had and these were communicated to the owners. They very promptly and graciously responded. If these concerns are addressed, then we would gladly rent this property again!
We rented this property for a girls weekend and had a wonderful time! Sandra was so easy to reach and even suggested places to go and eat nearby! The house & lake were beautiful! We came back so relaxed!
What a wonderful house for a summer getaway! There was a group of 10 of us and the house couldn't have been more perfect. It was relaxing, clean, and very accomodating. The owners of this house are great--both helpful and responsive. They both made it very easy to find the house and gave us access to anything we needed. My group will definitely be back next year!
