Pictures do not do this home justice

  • 5 of 5

We had a family gathering in the area for a wedding, and this home made a wonderful base for the California contingent. There were beds for all, but most importantly was the massive "great room" opening on to a generous screened porch overlooking the lake and huge open kitchen, with plenty of dining and lounging say nothing of the movie theatre, ping pong table, water trampoline, boat dock. Just splendid for our group - and probably yours. The owners were very accomodating and have decorated this with flair for a lakeside home.

Spacious and Spectacular

  • 5 of 5

This property is perfect for a 20+ family vacation. The kitchen is awesome to work in. You will not feel like you are tripping over one another in the main gathering area. There is something for everyone: media room, ping pong table, yard, fire pit, dock and trampoline, screened porch, canoe. . .We enjoyed heading to the main lake to catch the glorious evening sunsets. The master bedrooms are very large and lovely. We highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a large home for a great rate. The Germano's were gracious as they worked to provide a great experience for us.

What a great house! The kitchen and bedrooms are perfect for a large group. Great views of the main lake and a beautiful screened in porch to just relax. The fishing was fantastic!

David & Sheila Germano are a class act!

WOW! What an AWESOME experience!!!

  • 5 of 5

Had my husband's 50th birthday party at the lakehouse for a weekend stay. The home is a class act all around...totally beautiful and very tastefully decorated and very clean. Mix of ages from 8yrs old to 72yrs. EVERYONE had a great time. Water was cold as we stayed in October, but with 6 teens in tow...they did not care. They used the water trampoline, canoe and firepit. It is VERY difficult to tire out these active teens, but this house offered plenty to keep them busy. The teens used the ping pong table and had contests and eventually nestled into the theater room at night and watched Jurassic Park until 1am. Didn't think a kitchen could be too big...ok it can't, especially with 6+ women in the kitchen at once. But the kitchen truly is the most important room in this or any house. Kitchen is awesome for workspace, gathering, eating, food layout. The beds were comfy and the layout perfect. Only two caveats I can think of...grill is on ground level patio area, which is normal, but the only way to access it is to go down the 17 basement stairs. If you do not grill, no biggie, but we are grillers and it was not ideal. Second is garbage pickup. There is no garbage pickup service for the house, so the sign on the inside garage door indicates to load your garbage into your vehicle and drop it off at the community dumpster about 3 miles away. No way I was putting that in my minivan. The sign on garage door says you will be charged for excessive garbage left. I don't know what that means, but we left 5 lg bags of garbage in the bins in garage. I think it would serve the owners better if they need to charge for garbage removal to add the garbage disposal fees into cleaning fees so renters do not have to be shocked about garbage arrangement. With that said, owner Dave is VERY responsive, professional, flexible and a down right good guy. Thank you for sharing your home!!!

Great Family Vacation Venue

  • 5 of 5

Owners Dave & Shiela could not have been more responsive to our needs! They were great! The house was very well maintained, as advertised. High-end appliances were a nice amenity, although as noted by some others, the cooktop took a little getting used to. Lots of pots and pans were available, although not all were compatible with the cooktop. The grounds were very well maintained; the fire pit was a hit for making s'mores! Very tranquil and relaxing experience, especially in the late summer. We rented a pontoon boat for the week and encountered very few other boaters; felt like we "owned" the lake. Highly recommend renting this lovely property; lovely house and caring, responsive owners!

Lovely, inspirational vacation for extended family

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful vacation we had here with our 4 children and their spouses and 14 grandchildren! The lake was beautiful and provided water skiing, swimming, boating. The house was spacious and lovely. The beds were very comfortable. The yard was big enough for family games of prisoners base. The theater was great for viewing films. The area around the fire pit was perfect for evening vespers and s'mores. All week long we heard no complaints from anyone, from the youngest, a 1-1/2 year-old up to the oldest at 73 years, and everyone thought we should do it again.
