Guys Golf Weekend
Great place to hang our hats when we weren't hitting the nearby golf courses. Grilled out both nights and enjoyed the views from the wrap around porch while we ate. Would definitely stay again!
Very comfortable and quiet in March!
We had a good time at the lake house. The house is well stocked and in great condition. Brenda was very nice and easy to work with. We came at a weird time in March, so it was very quiet (not busy on the lake). We saw lots of birds: ducks, loons, kingfishers, etc. We also got 3 inches of snow, which put a damper on our hiking and boating plans. The IGA in Loogootee had a good selection of food/beverages. We all enjoyed the Amish buffet in Montgomery (10 min.). I gave the rental 4/5 stars only for the Wi-Fi issue. It costs extra and was a bit tricky to set up. If your phones use Google Project Fi (uses Sprint, T-Mobile, U.S. Cellular, and Three), you definitely need Wi-Fi in this area. Verizon seemed to work ok. I wish we could totally unplug, but that was not practical on this trip. Thanks for a great stay.
Family get together
Wonderful place for a family get together. Great open space for visiting, eating and playing games. Everyone had a bed to sleep in. The view and surrounding area are beautiful
A Great Family Escape!
Our family of 20 had a wonderful time together at the Great Lake Escape. We were very pleased with the property and clean and comfortable home. Our winter stay was COLD but there was plenty to do together inside. We would recommend this get away place to anyone!
Weather wasn't good and the fish didn't bite but we loved the house and location! We will be back!!
Perfection Found - Beautiful, Private, Friendly, Clean
What an incredible weekend! Bonfires, fishing, swimming (brrrr!!), canoeing, kayaking, paddle-boating, cooking, grilling, and hanging out with family! Beautiful, large, and very private property. Having the house at the end of the road was beyond amazing.
We found the house to be perfect for our group and all ages loved it! Ages 8 months to 83 years old! We loved that the kids could run around outside within view of the wraparound decks. It was also nice to have large common areas both upstairs and downstairs. It allowed for visiting and playing downstairs in the living room/deck, while others could be more mellow upstairs, reading, etc.
The changing leaves were beautiful and the lake was so peaceful. We found all of the neighbors and folks we met out on the lake to be very friendly and a lot of fun!
The personal poetry and the art were wonderful touches. Made us feel right at home! Cannot wait to come back!
