About Dallas

Semi-retired local business owner. My wife and I live about 1 mile away.

Dallas purchased this house in 2015

Why Dallas chose Sheridan

Mann Lake has been in our family since 1968. It's an unique property, in that it has a lake that lies completely inside our property.

Marti and family

  • 5 of 5

We traveled to the Mann Lake rental to spend spring break with the Grandchildren. The owner was very responsive, the home is beautiful and very accomodating, the property is serene, fun and private. Even though the weather was not great, we had lots of inside entertainment. We had a wonderful time watching the wildlife and hope to be back during the summer months do we can play outside on the beautiful property. GREAT PROPERTY. The landscaping is very well done. Really sweet spot

Perfect spot!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful trip! We stayed for Christmas and they had everything decorated beautifully, even more than we expected! The place had everything we needed and then some. I was concerned when we were nearing the house because others homes were so close to the road. The house and property couldn't have been any more secluded and spacious.

Dallas stopped out almost every day to fill up bird feeders, put apples out or to clear an area for the kids to skate. We attempted ice fishing, but the temps didn't cooperate.

Despite the absolute frigid temps, the skating "rink" was used multiple times each day. We had forgotten sleds, but luckily had some cardboard boxes the kids used to slide down the small hill. The dogs had plenty of room to run around as well.

The game room provided entertainment for the group during the evening hours. We ventured out to the local bowling alley for a few games as well. We took a little road trip to Greenville and enjoyed lunch at the 57 Brew Pub and Bistro, highly recommend as their food and beer was excellent.

Overall everything was perfect, the home had everything we needed. Communication with Dallas was fabulous as well.

Thank you for opening your home up to us, definitely would love to visit when it's warm out.

Private and relaxing

Very clean, roomy and private house with lots of windows to the beautiful Lake view.

Excellent place to relax and do fishing or swiming in the Lake or game room for the rainy day.

We loved it!

Fantastic stay!

  • 5 of 5

Went with some friends for a weekend getaway and had an absolute blast! The place was very well taken care of, and had EVERYTHING you could think of. We were conistently surprised at all of the little things that were in place to make our stay that much better. We utilized the game room and the volley ball net, as well as the kayaks/boats. This was one of the best experiences I have had renting to date and would gladly come back next year!

Exceptional Property

  • 5 of 5

Mann Lake Cottage is the one of the best lake property we have ever rented. The lake was perfect for the 4,3,& 2 years olds. They enjoyed the wonderful day the got to stay with us. All the water toys were fun to go for rides on. There is plenty for tweens to do. Perfect place for families of all ages. Rainy day games and puzzles were well supplied also. Clean and well stocked. Thank you for the care your family takes of the property and sharing it with others.
