Perfect Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

With a large family of 12 adults and 4 kids (5 - 2 yrs old) this was the perfect location! The house was spacious, tidy and clean. The lake front was perfect for the kids to enjoy the sand, yet also jump off the dock while us adults were able to stand (on our tippy toes) in the water. If you don't want to swim, you can enjoy one of many chairs that line the yard or even enjoy the hammock from the deck. We had a wonderful time and will recommend to anyone looking.

Nice place, good feel to area

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful place, nice lake. Cold snap caught us off guard but enjoyed the week. We did replace a few light bulbs and drains were very slow. Clean with good beds. Third bedroom is meagerly furnished.

Beautiful house with plenty of space and a great beach.

  • 5 of 5

We had so much fun with family at this house. Open living area, room for a lot of people to stay, private boat house, wonderful beach. My one year old had a blast! Very kid friendly... no stairs, equipped with kids life jackets and toys for all ages. The owner was also very easy to work with. I would highly recommend staying here.

Family Fun

  • 5 of 5

Our family stay at the lake house was awesome! We had such a wonderful time! The house was perfect, everything was clean and the house had everything we needed. The best part was Mike let us bring the family pet Labrador, She loved the water and I'm sure she had the most fun! We didn't spend much time inside, the weather was perfect to be on the water, even my 80 year old grandmother was on the jet ski!! Needless to say, we had a great time and wish we were still there!
