Nice people and nice lake house!

  • 5 of 5

First off the owners, Mark & Jessica, were great people to deal with and had everything perfect for our arrival. The lake house was spotless, inviting & comfortable. The views of the lake were literally outside our back door and spectacular. Only downside was the record cold so swimming was out of the question 😊?. When the need arises again Mark & Jessica will be my first call!

The house was absolutely amazing. After my initial reservation fell through due to weather, Jessica was able to quickly approve my request to book and provide all the necessary information. Questions were answered quickly.

The house itself was gorgeous and it right up on the lake. Had the weather been nicer, we may have had the opportunity to jump in.

One thing to note though is that the table pictured in the breakfast nook is thinner than it appears in the picture. It was not an issue at all though.

My only complaint is that the house was not stocked with many of the "essentials" such as salt and pepper. This is easily remedied though provided that you know about it in advance and can bring your own.

Overall, I would definitely stay here again.

Our home is nestled at the end of an elevated drive on Kings Island peninsula, on Lake Pistakee, surrounded by other vacation and year round homes.
