wonderful, with many amenities

  • 5 of 5

My family visited this fantastic home in late august, 2017. The four of us have had great experiences camping in the vicinity, and decided to "kick it up a notch". This we did. The home had room to house far more people, and we were constantly impressed with the thoughtful amenities Darak and family thought of.

The kayak and peddle boat are one thing, but PFD's and fishing poles (although we brought our own) are another. There was also a full complement of sporting equipment to take advantage of the awesome yard, which includes a volley/badminton court.

We were surprised to find nice clean towels in the spotless bathrooms, and cooking in the nice kitchen and awesome outdoor grill (electric ignition worked!) was a pleasure.

We plan to return to this great spot on the planet-

Great spot

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful, well-maintained house on a nice piece of property. Lake is nicer than it may appear in the pictures. Darek, the owner, was kind and easy to deal with. Watching the sunrise over the lake is a great way to start the day. Will be trying to get back in the future.

Best location on the lake!! What a wonderful weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We took a trip for a weekend from NYC and absolutely loved staying at Darek's family home. We spent most of the weekend swimming in the lake, enjoying the lawn leading down to the lake, and the badminton/volleyball court. Best of all were the kayaks and pedal boat (the babies loved getting a ride on this!). We even caught a couple of fish. Thanks Darek for a wonderful weekend at this gorgeous secluded property. Darek even offered to help return a couple of raincoats we brought up and forgot in the closet as we didn't need them. All in all a great experience and highly recommended.

Fantastic house, beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

I came with some friends for the weekend, this house was perfect. Scenic location, beautiful lake, and comfortable rooms. Great deck for relaxing, grilling, and listening to music. The ping pong table was lots of fun too. Highly recommended.

Secluded Lakefront Paradise

  • 5 of 5

A real gem! This house has it all and exceeded all our expectations: amazing view, great swimming/ canoeing/ kayaking, charming open interior, expansive deck, firepit, even a ping pong table and volleyball court! Situated about 1/3 of a mile away from the cluster of other homes, you will feel quite at peace here. You won't see or hear any neighbor because there aren't any! All you hear is the sound of birds, frogs, and trees blowing in the wind. The open living /dining room make it a great place to cook and enjoy a meal with friends. Great gas grill and patio furniture too! The owner, Darek, was very responsive and helped us find an Eagle watching station in the next town. We will definitely be back soon!
