Perfect Family Reunion home

  • 5 of 5

This home was the perfect choice for our families trip to South Bend for a Notre Dame game!! The home was spacious and had tons of amenities! The ping pong and foosball table got a lot of use! We had great weather which made enjoying the lake even better. We roasted marshmallows by the firepit and relaxed by the fire watching the sunset over the lake. My family was very pleased with the house selection and is ready to go back next year. The owner was very accommodating and even provided some welcome beverages. I can't say enough about this great property!

Perfect Notre Dame Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had extended family together for a perfect Notre Dame weekend. There was so much space and something for everyone! The kids loved the beach and the adults loved having everything right there to make ourselves at home. We cannot say enough about the hospitality and quality of the home.

Notre Dame Resort

  • 5 of 5

My family and I came into South Bend for a return to my Alma Mater, ND. We had a wonderful time enjoying the Irish take out UMass - but this weekend would not have been as special without staying at this home, which my family refers to as the "Notre Dame Resort". The home is very spacious, we cooked on the grill each evening, enjoyed drinks on the lake around the outdoor firepit, kids played in the sand on the beach - we enjoyed ping pong, foosball. After kids were down the adults enjoyed time on the outdoor deck as well as the screened in porch sharing laughter and conversations into the night. This place is perfectly located near the airport in a unique residential development around a lake that is the Perfect Notre Dame Resort.

Perfect Place for a Notre Dame weekend!!!

  • 5 of 5

We LOVED this property and the owners could not have been more accommodating!! From booking the rental through our entire stay, the owners were great. The property was a short ride from Notre Dame and the layout of the house made for a fantastic place for our entire group to spend time together and to enjoy a great Notre Dame football weekend. The house itself was like new and our kids really enjoyed the ping pong table, foosball table, and of course fishing in the lake. The house, the setting on the lake and the location make for the perfect match whether it is a football weekend, graduation weekend or a reunion weekend.

Awesome time had by all!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about our experience with this property was amazing!!! The owners were very helpful and made the renting of the property very easy. The house is very well kept and clean! We rented the house for our daughters graduation from Notre Dame and it was very easy getting back and forth to all the events. We had relatives come in for the graduation and had 12 adults in the house with plenty of room for all! It was a graduation-family reunion. The decks on the back of the house over looking the lake were a highlight for all to set on and enjoy each others company for breakfast, lunch and dinner.I have to say that the accommodations made the graduation and family reunion a memory that will be on top for all! The kitchen was wonderful!!! Very spacious kitchen, we are a group of foodies that love to cook. The kitchen meet every ones needs and more! If you are thinking of renting this property you can not go wrong!!!! We really really enjoyed our stay!!!!!!!

Beautiful and Spacious Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Everything about our experience was fabulous! The process of arranging the rental was easy and convenient. The owner was incredibly helpful and accommodating. The property itself was even more beautiful than the pictures showed. The house was spacious and appointed beautifully. We especially loved the back decks and lakeside fire pit. Getting to ND campus is convenient and easy. We enjoyed our stay thoroughly! We would highly recommend!
