About Christina & Karl, Owners

We are world travelers, each speaking three languages and having lived outside of our home countries most of our lives. We love to travel and when we do we often rent homes.

When we are away we love to share our lake front home with guests.

Why Christina & Karl, Owners chose Cedar Creek Lake

We have been renting vacation rentals for many years ourselves and this property gives us so much of what we love about vacation rentals - the views, the sounds and the character of the home.

What makes this house unique

The 180+ degree views of the water! The gorgeous kitchen and the water views really captured us, but overall this home has so much to offer our family.

Awesome Easter -Nice Updates in Bathroom

  • 5 of 5

I stayed for a nice Easter weekend and everything was flawless. I loved the updated bathrooms from my last stay, they are really fantastic. The property was great for an Easter Egg hunt, we even invited some of the neighbourhood kids over. They were very friendly and all the little ones had a blast. The house is still well appointed, clean and had many other little updates that previous renters will pick up on.

I have seen other reviews mentioning the cameras onsite. Firstly these are only outdoors cameras, ( 20+ years in security industry) I would be able to spot any inside. And for a renter that spent hours of his time out on the water, I felt secure with my belongings back at the house with the cameras there.

Kudos to the owners for keeping this house updated, safe and available for family fun.

The perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

It was the perfect getaway for my birthday, me and the girlfriend decided to take a weekend off for my birthday and we had the most fun we've had in a very long time. It was very clean, the hot tub was perfect, no problems at all, five stars across the board from us, we'll be glad to come again in the future!

An amazing stay. Beautiful and comfy house.

  • 5 of 5

Nothing like waking up in a palatial house will all the amenities one would ever need and just relaxing to the sounds of the lake washing upon the shore. Owners were very hospitable and accommodating. Can't wait to go again for my next vacation!

Beautiful View, Great House

  • 5 of 5

This was a beautiful property. I had the pleasure of staying here for a 2nd time over spring break. The back deck is a great place to catch an amazing sunset over the lake. The kids liked the hot tub and dock as well. The home is very spacious and well maintained with lots of room to spread out. The owners are great to communicate with. I highly recommend this place.

The perfect place to stay on vacation.

Tons of space, with a beautiful view right on the lake. It came with all the amenities I could have possibly needed.

The property was squeaky clean and very well-maintained. The owners are very easy to work with.

I would definitely recommend this property to a friend or relative, in fact I liked it so much, I went back spring break myself.

It's near several little towns so there are stores and restaurants near. The only one I tried so far was and it was a good time.
