Words cannot describe the wonderful Thansgiving & Christmas we had at this beautiful home. We enjoyed the many meals cooked in a very well equipped kitchen,

Thanksgiving and Christmas Eve in the lovely great room with the wood burning fireplace and the days filled with daily walks in the snow around the beautiful lake.. Our family wants to thank you Sherrie for letting us use your house for the holidays.

Happy New Year from our family to yours.

Perfect lake house!

  • 5 of 5

Every year, our families are on the hunt for the perfect house for our dual vacations, we meet 4 adults and 4 little kids. This house truly was the perfect spot! First off, it was super clean, perfectly furnished, since we have little ones (ages 4-7) we prefer to eat in, the kitchen was super spacious and well equipped so we could cook delicious meals.

We hit a bit of rain but it wasn't an issue at all! The kayaks were available for us to enjoy the lake and even get in the water, that rainiy day could have been a disaster anywhere else but we had a blast! We warmed the kids up in the hot tub afterwards and everyone had a big smile on their faces, grown up included!

The location was perfect for us since it was close to easy hiking, on our way back, everyone freshened up in the lake before diner, it doesn't get better than this, well, I guess the open roof for start gazing did top all of it.

All in all, I would highly recommend this place, it was all worth it!

Great Rental

  • 4 of 5

The pictures don't do the house justice - it is a very large, well-appointed rental. We had 8 adults and 6 kids ranging from 8 months to 11 years and everyone had a great time. There were a lot of activities with the beach, kayaks, pool/pinball/jukebox/x box in the basement, and lots of outdoor seating on the 4 different decks, one of which was screened in and another which was on the roof with a hot tub. There was also a great collection of movies and books.

The one issue we had was that two of the toilets were getting jammed up to the point of needing a plumber (twice). This wasn't necessarily anyone's fault, it's just that these two particular toilets were below the level of the septic tank and had very little pressure. We used the toilet paper that was either stocked by housekeeping or left by previous guests, and that may have contributed since it was on the thicker side. I'd recommend getting single ply for the main level and basement bathrooms to help avoid any issues. Sherrie was very responsive and considerate about trying to get the issue resolved, which we appreciated.

Overall we would definitely rent this property again, there was something for everyone and our family had a great time.

Amazing is an understatement

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had an AMAZING time renting this property. Location was perfect and the amenities in the house kept us more than busy for our stay. I don't have one bad thing to say about this property, owner was very responsive and accommodating which was VERY APPRECIATED. Any and all questions I had Sherri was more than willing to assist. House was very clean, spacious, everything was modern and welcoming, I absolutely LOVED this home and plan to rent again in the future.
