Picturesque lakefront home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here last Spring and had a WONDERFUL time. The property is just far enough off the main roads to feel completely secluded, but it's still less than 10 minutes drive to any store you could need to visit. The house and kitchen are well-appointed, much better than many rentals I have visited. The views and overall experience of staying at this house is remarkable. We just re-booked for this Spring, which we never do (always like to explore new places on our annual Spring road trip). It's that good. Book with confidence.

Very nice surroundings/view.

  • 3 of 5

The property this house sits on is beautiful. We were disappointed that the tv's have not been updated for quite some time, they are very antiquated. A hottub would be a nice addition. Porches are nice and relaxing.

Owner's Response: Hi 2 of the tvs are smart tvs, 1 led and 3 analog, sorry you didn't find them satisfactory. Yes a hot tub would be nice and a swimming pool, maybe some day!

First impression was as advertised.

  • 5 of 5

Excellent directions- best to arrive during daylight hours on your first visit (secluded). Clean, very well maintained. Loads of cooking related items, well organized, clean and fully functional. Great floor plan. Beautiful views. Our group of ten adults 55 and over had a wonderful time. We will most likely return in 2017.

Wonderful lakeside home on Burr Oak Lake

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed a long weekend at the Lakehouse over the Fourth of July! While the weather did not cooperate, we enjoyed the time and the kids loved fishing from the backyard and the fire in the firepit. We rented a pontoon boat for a day and it was great to fish, swim and relax. Burr Oak Lake is a quiet lake with strict horsepower limitations on boats, which makes for a peaceful environment! The house has a terrific view of the lake, is very clean and we had plenty of room for 6 adults and 6 kids. Overall a very lovely stay!!
