With a recent stay for 9 adults, everyone's 'to do list' was met - boating, hiking, stand-up paddle board, shopping, relaxing and a camp fire. A terrific location and the home is well-stocked and maintained. Enjoy!

Best House on Burr Oak Lake

  • 5 of 5

This is about the only house, other than the state park lodge, with a view of the lake and direct access to the water. It is also incredibly well equipped, with great weber grills (propane and charcoal) and almost any kitchen tool you may need. This is also the only house I've rented where the knives were not as dull as broom handles. They actually cut stuff! The house feels really secluded, but you are walking distance to the marina (where you can rent a boat or launch your own), and less than ten minutes by car to the state park lodge, and to the Kroger grocery store and some decent little restaurants in Glouster/Trimble/Jacksonville.

Wish It Were Mine!

  • 5 of 5

This spacious home has one of the most spectacular views imaginable, is stocked to the gills with almost anything one could need, and has more seating areas than you can shake a stick at! This is such a beautiful area it makes me wish this was my home full time. The kids had fun trying out the hammock in the front yard, making smores at the large fire pit, and a hiking on the trail that runs through either end of the property. Just be sure to wear long pants and tennis shoes so you don't catch poison ivy. And this property is conveniently located just five minutes from Glouster where you can purchase anything you need from the local Dollar General or Kroger store. Our family hopes to return to this vacation paradise again next year.

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!
