Beautiful and Serene

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I rented the house for wedding weekend. It was everything we wanted and more. The house itself is spacious, well equipped, and is great for lounging and just taking in the beautiful scenery. We really enjoyed the three season deck with the disco ball. Hugh is so easy to contact and responds very quickly to all messages. We wish that we could have stayed longer and I would definitely stay here again! If you decide to venture off the property I would recommend Java Love for your caffeine fix!

Fantastic weekend

  • 5 of 5

This was a great weekend away from the city. The instructions/directions were extremely detailed. The ease of getting in and finding what we needed was outstanding. The house was well stocked and also had easy access to places nearby if we needed additional supplies. I would return to this house as much as possible.

An amazing house and weekend!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I rented the house for a relaxing three day weekend. It was everything we wanted and more. The house itself is spacious and well equipped and has two great decks for lounging, grilling and enjoying the beautiful weather. We particularly enjoyed the sun room with the disco ball. The dock is great to relax on and swim. The ramp to get down was quite steep but Hugh had advised about that and we were fine wearing the swimming shoes as recommended. I would definitely stay here again!

Perfect Lake House Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This lake house is fantastic! A group of 8 stayed for the weekend, and we were extremely pleased with the size and cleanliness of the house. Knowing that there were 3 beds, we brought an air mattress, however there is an area to sleep in the sunroom as well as a large comfortable couch. The kitchen was complete with utensils, plates, pots, pans and spices - all we had to bring was our own food. The view of the lake is unbeatable! We were able to relax and swim off the dock and enjoy the TWO beautiful decks. The area was quiet and peaceful. Overall, we had a fabulous weekend. Thanks Hugh!
