Simply the Best

  • 5 of 5

Simply the best. We rented Great Escape for one week and must say, it was fantastic. the amenities are great and the view is just spectacular. With 10 bedrooms and 7 baths, the house can support a large group comfortably. We never ran out of hot water for showers. We roasted s'mores on the wood burning fire pit and had several large group dinners in the kitchen and dining area. While we didnt use the kayaks, it was great to know that we could. And the dock is so peaceful. The home owners were kind and responsive to our questions. Thanks for a great stay! We would definitely rent again.

Huge, comfy, clean, well-appointed, perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our multi-generational family! Plenty of space for kids to play, elders to have privacy, all to gather! Beautiful yard with games and fire pit down to boat house and dock--great views of the lake! The gigantic kitchen and eating area were always a gathering place, the property was clean, there were numerous amenities (four kayaks, toys for all ages, dozens of life jackets, etc.) and the grocery only 2 miles away. A wonderful vacation spot!

Relaxing week in a gorgeous home!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with a large group of about 20 family members. The house is gorgeous and has everything you could need. 2 refrigerators, 9 bedrooms, plenty of bathrooms, and the 7,000 square feet came in handy with our large group. Plenty to do here - kayaks were used constantly, brought tubes to lounge in the lake, large deck to enjoy the beautiful view, played games and cards, firepit to relax and roast marshmallows, etc. Cousin brought boat and tubing which was a blast! Owners very nice and pleasure to work with. This was the most relaxing vacation I ever had! We were so pleased, we are planning to return again next year and we can't wait! :o)

The Most Amazing Week!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a week long family reunion at Great Escape. We were a party of 18 that had "kids" of ALL ages all the way down to 9 months. This property had something for EVERYONE! The children enjoyed the trampoline, swing set, toys, games and videos, large yard and swimming in the lake. The adults enjoyed the large outside deck, 4 kayaks, horse shoes, pool table and ping pong and foosball table for some late night fun.

The home was large enough for everyone to have their own space, and places for us all to gather as well. The kitchen was well equipped with anything we would need with plenty of storage for our food. The kitchen also provided more than enough space for everyone to sit together comfortably and enjoy a wonderful meal.

The owners were a pleasure to work with, and promptly answered any questions or concerns we had before we arrived and during our stay. They were also extremely prompt in returning our security deposit after we left. They provided a nice welcome basket with information about the area as well as the makings for Smores. I thought that was a nice touch.

I would not hesitate to recommend this property to anyone! It truly was a Great Escape, and we look forward to “escaping” again!

Exceeded expectations....

  • 4 of 5

This house is enormous and the photos are nice but doesn't fully do it justice. It's not easy to find houses large enough to handle our annual family reunion type get together. This one had room to spare and the flexibility with pull out beds and trundles in many bedrooms easily allowed us to give everyone an ideal space.

We brought bags with toys and supplies that never needed to be opened because the kids were so busy with the amenities provided inside and outside.

Most of the time was spent in the kitchen area which had ample storage and refrigerated spaces. The appliances and work areas were designed to accommodate a lot of people. A plaza with food and beverages is only a short drive.

We highly recommend this house to large groups with or without kids.

Excellent location with everything you would need

  • 5 of 5

We rented this place for our group vacation. Our party included people from various age groups including little kids, pre-teens, teenagers, adults and 60+. Each one of us loved it.

This place is spacious and is extremely well kept. It has almost everything you could think of in a vacation property. Views are amazing and there is so much to do onsite. We had a blast with Pool Table, Ping-Pong, Paddle Boat, Kayak and Row Boat. The BBQ party was a big hit. Audio-Video Library has tons of stuff for young and adults alike. Kitchen had plenty of dishes and cutlery for our large group size.

Supplies in the house were thoughtful and well kept. Owners are accommodating and responsive.

Pictures do not do justice. Wonderful place. We would love to go back.
