Perfect getaway in a beautiful lake home

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I came for the weekend with our 2 dogs - this home is wonderful! Plenty of space for several more people and right on the water - only seconds from Lake Istokpoga! We plan on coming back with a group!

It was a great stay

  • 4 of 5

The property is off the beating path on a quiet part of the lake at the end of a channel. The house is well furnished and very welcoming and clean. We have rented there many springs with the previous owner and now the new. I did however miss the gas grille :( but was able to make due. You wont be disappointed in your stay it was the best value on the lake at the time of this writing. I will miss it thanks for the great memory's. Terry & Beth

Great Bass Fishing

  • 5 of 5

The lake home was lovely and provided a perfect place for a weekend of fishing. We stayed here once before under a different owner. Ron and Susie have even improved the experience. The house was well maintained and very nicely furnished and decorated. The kitchen was well equipped and there were plenty of towels for all! The dock in back provided a nice place to tie up for a break from fishing.

Fishing and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for my husband, myself and my parents! It was right on a canal that had a dock with a boat lift; which made it very easy for all of us to get in and out of the boat with out having to load the boat on the trailer each time. The community was very quiet and the neighbors were friendly! My favorite part was seeing the turtle that hung out by the dock that the owners have named "Bill"! I was able to lay on the dock and hand feed him bread! We thoroughly enjoyed our week there and have already booked it again for our anniversary!

Very accommodating, so comfortable, loved it!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the location. Loved going right out to the dock to fish, and having the boat right there to head out to the lake. The house was lovely and had all of the amenities of home. We had a super relaxed week and can't wait till we can return again.
