Incredible summer getaway with friends!

  • 5 of 5

Five friends and I had a wonderful time at Hugh's house for the weekend. The house itself is absolutely gorgeous with lots of space and plenty of charm. The two decks overlooking the lake are perfect for relaxing and the lake is clean and beautiful for swimming. This house is a real gem. I highly recommend it for a relaxing summer getaway in a beautiful setting. Thanks Hugh!

Awesome weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Hugh's lakefront home. Everything we could have possibly wanted or needed for the weekend was there at the house, available to us. The view was incredible to wake up to, the lake was clean and temperature perfect, and the house was very comfortable. The sunroom with the disco ball was an added bonus! Also, Hugh was awesome to work with. He was quick to answer any questions I had. If we make it back up to the area, we would definitely stay here again. Thanks, Hugh!

Gorgeous, serene property.

  • 5 of 5

The home itself is beautiful, but the location in the reservoir itself is what takes the cake. We celebrated my 30th birthday here, and our stay was everything I had hoped for.

Perfect Winter Getaway

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely home. The kitchen is well equipped with everything you need, the living room is comfortable, the view from the deck is beautiful, there's plenty of wood for the fireplace... We didn't want to leave and can't wait to come back in summer time.

Our group had such an awesome time here. Beautiful scenery and plenty of things to do. We took advantage of the fireplace, cool disco room, and deck. Everything was clean and the place had almost everything we needed. Definitely would come back! Thanks Hugh!
