A great place to stay!
The photos on the website don’t do this place justice! Tons of updates have been made! There’s tons of space for a larger family (there were 10 of us) to spread out and relax without being on top of each other, but also we could all enjoy a movie in the living room & dinner in the dining room together. The owners were very were only a quick phone call away if we had any issues. Overall, a wonderful place to stay! Don’t miss out!
Incredible experience. Owners were really nice. It was flawless. Would def rent here again. Accomodated30 people comfortably and fully equipped.
This is a beautiful home! I went with 10 adults and 8 children 5 and under and we had more than enough room to have amazing sleeping arrangements for everyone. The house was stocked with all the supplies you could possibly need. One of our favorite gathering spots was the porch. It was a safe place to allow all the children to play. The owners are amazing. We had one complication, and they were right there to help us out.
If you have small children, be aware there is not a fence in the back yard to keep them from the lake, so you will need to be vigilant in watching them. The entire family agreed we would all go back!
Roomy with plenty of baths. Lake access, nearby stores and off site amenities make for a great place to have a reunion.
Beautiful area and home! Needed minor updates/fixes
We absolutely loved the lake and location of the home! We just a little trouble with the dock. The home accommodated 25 of us comfortably. Overall, our stay was fun and enjoyable. I would recommend this to anyone looking at this location for a vacation. Owners were very communicative which made it extremely easygoing.
The house was fantastic for our family reunion - plenty of beds for 20 adults and 6 children.
We really enjoyed our stay here. The house is fantastic. There are lots of sleeping areas and lots of bathrooms - needed for a large group. I think there is a TV in every room with a bed. The kitchen area was also good - lots of dishes available to use if you didn't bring your own. Another nice touch was that all the kitchen cabinets and drawers were labelled with what was inside, so you don't have to spend time searching 5 drawers before you find the silverware. Also lots of good areas for sitting around visiting. It is obvious the owners have fixed this place up to enjoy it themselves. We used the hot tub and it was very nice on my sore back.
The children had a ball swimming off the dock close to the house. The only reason I didn't give this place a 5 star rating (4.5 stars is not an option) is that there were no stairs or ladder to get out of the swimming area close to the house. There was a wide enough place there for adults who were not in the water with the children to sit and watch them swim. It would have been nice to have a bigger area (maybe covered to have some shade?) out by the boat dock for swimming and sitting and watching others swim. We have no other complaints and will be happy to stay here again.
The owners were very responsive. We couldn't find any extra garbage bags. I texted the owner to ask where they might be and got a response immediately telling me where to find them! We had no other problems but it was nice to know the owners would answer immediately if we needed them.
There was plenty of room to park all our vehicles (11 of them - one with a boat trailer, and one with a seadoo trailer.)
All in all, this place is fantastic. We've had a family reunion for the last three years and this is by far the nicest place we've stayed. Hopefully we can book it early enough next year that we can use it again.
We are very happy to hear that you enjoyed the stay.
We do have a ladder on the dock, where it is deeper. The shallow area closer to the house is more intended to use to get on and off a jetski. We never thought about adding a ladder there, since it is so shallow. That could be a useful addition.
Hopefully we will see you as our guests again, and I will see if I can arrange for an additional ladder per your suggestion.
Convenient to Cedar Creek Brewery, Tara Winery, Canton Trade Days. Lone Star Marina and Whatz Up Family Fun park with go-karts, mini golf, laser tag and much more.
Additional information about rental rates
For large groups (>25) or for events, please check with us for additional fees. Large groups use much more in utilities and create more wear and tear on the home, which is why we have additional fees and a larger security deposit for groups over 25 guests. For 6 nights or more we offer a midstay refresh for free with our cleaning team coming in and tidying up the house so you can enjoy your vacation. Ask for details.
