The lower deck is shaded by the upper, and is the ideal spot to cool off after a long day in the sun. Ample seating on both decks gives you the flexibility to create outdoor spaces to suit everyone's needs.

Off the lower deck you will find the tree-lined stairs down to the boat dock, swimming area and sundeck. Take advantage of the cool Lake waters and the unobstructed view, or fish right off the shore.

On the main level, the two story living room, with it's wall of windows, provides a spectacular view of the Lake, captures the incredible sunrises, and makes morning coffee something to look forward to. The living room features a fireplace, ample seating, and two sleeper sofas. It adjoins a lake view game room with entertainment center, TV, game table and wet bar. The hall bath is located between the rooms, and has a walk-in shower.

The open kitchen has plenty of room for entertaining, with an island, bar seating for 4, and all appliances. The dining area is right off the kitchen, and has large bay windows.

The upper level has one of two master suites in the home, complete with sitting area, great lake views, and a large private bath with whirlpool tub and walk-in shower. The other bedroom on this level also has a sitting area, lake views and a queen size bed.

The lower level hosts three bedrooms, including the second master suite. This master has a queen size bed, sitting area and private bath with walk-in shower. It also has great lake views, as do the other two bedrooms, one with two twin beds, the other with a queen bed and sitting area. The lower level also has a full hall bath, laundry room , and a second wet bar.

Our stay at this house was awesome!!

  • 5 of 5

Our large family had an awesome time here. The view was beautiful and sunrises fabulous! The house was great for all of us to have plenty of space and the kitchen and deck were great for family lunch and dinner. The kitchen was equipped with most things we needed as we prepared most meals at the house. GAME room was great for kids playing board games. Bedroom views were so beautiful! Thank you for sharing your house and thank you Mike for answering all of my calls and questions. We hope to be back. Bob and Donna Barton- July 2017

Spacious House, great view

  • 5 of 5

This place has a great view of the main channel with a large deck for dining/lounging outside. The dock can get pretty sketchy during peak times of the day when large boats are creating giant wakes, however, we were able to swim and lounge on the dock without much issue.

Fantastic, Beautiful, Great View, Terrific Living Space

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed in mid-June. The 11 of us consisted of my wife and I, our three grown children and their spouses, and their three very young children -- and this house accommodated us perfectly.

The VRBO listing calls this house, "The View", and that is an apt title. Many of the lake houses in this area are enshrouded in trees ... and there are definitely lots of trees around this house. But, the way it sits up high and looks over the lake truly makes it a terrific vista for watching all the lake activity. One day, while my kids were out skiing and tubing, I stayed up in the upper floor bedrooms and filmed/photographed them. And, the "view" works both ways. That is, not being all that familiar with the lake, it would have been very easy to venture out on the lake and then have trouble finding our house from the water. But, this house made that endeavor relatively easy since it is so prominently visible from the lake even at a distance, AND there's a little island offshore that serves as a landmark to help find the house too.

The main floor's floorplan is wonderfully open -- kitchen, dining area, great room, separate seating area over by the wet bar. This made for fantastic family togetherness without feeling crowded at all. In our normal lives, our four families live apart and see each other only occasionally. So, being able to stay in one house with this open floor plan was really a treat. And, despite our different life stages, we all felt this house met our needs perfectly.

The owner is friendly, flexible, and good to deal with.

Hint 1: If you rent this house, once you get the address, realize that Google Maps doesn't show it in the right spot ... but rather a block or so away. Check out Bing Maps for an accurate location.

Hint 2: The decor has lots of glass-top tables which adds to the house's beauty. With a couple of 2 year olds, we worried about both their safety and that of the tables! Really, just the great room central square table was the biggest concern. So, we took that glass top off and kept it safely aside until we replaced it when we left.

Pros: Location, view, size, layout, brightness, water proximity, 2 refrigerators, comfy cushy carpeting, huge bedrooms (all of them), huge deck.

Cons: Lots of stairs down to the water, insects (due to woodsy lake location), distance from town, a few repair-related items the owner said he would follow-up on (e.g., A/C in MBR).

We would be pleased to stay here again.

Fantastic Place for a Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The House was fantastic! We were overjoyed to arrive at a beautiful, well appointed home that is very well cared for. The house had all the amenities that we could ask for! A very well stocked kitchen. It felt like home in no time. We also loved the deck, and we spent a lot of time enjoying the Main Channel Lake view. The location is excellent a quick drive to many amenities, and the grounds are beautiful.

On mile marker 8 and Across the main channel from Shady Gators! I would recommend calling Playin Hooky Water Taxi for fun outing! Other wise bring food & suits and you are set!

We loved our holiday! The owner is very responsive and helpful. The information provided is detailed and helpful. We would recommend this house to everyone and will definitely stay here again.
