Guestbook comments from the owner

My family stayed here when the home we usually use for a family party was sold. We had stayed there for years and were hesitant to try something else. We found ourselves happy the other place was gone. Being older we didnt utilize the lake but enjoyed the view every morning and the breeze that came through the house. It was very comfortable and clean and we plan on staying again for our next family party. We were sad to go when our week was over.

Excellent place to stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

Came up for a team building weekend for work, and had a great time! This house has everything you could ever need! A beautiful deck for relaxing, a swim platform, and sitting around the fire at night was unbelievable! Gorgeous view of the lake! We will definitely be coming back!!!

Best vacation rental ever!

  • 5 of 5

as advertised and much much more. I visited with 2 grandchildren (8 and 4 years old), and my wife, the kids swam every chance they could get. This property is very roomy, very clean, and very well appointed. When Todd says just bring your bathing suit and your toothbrush he is not kidding. New high end appliances, everything you need in the kitchen, cable, wifi, etc. Hated to leave and would not hesitate to go back in a heartbeat. In fact Todd's place has spoiled us for any future rentals, it could not have been better.

Relaxing and injoyable cottage

  • 5 of 5

This is our fourth year in a row renting this cottage. Can't really say enough about how nice this place is. There were many updates since last year on this cottage and one of the nicest was the deck. You can sit on the deck in the morning with your coffee and just enjoy the peacefully lake. We were able to do a lot of bike riding in the area and lots of kayaking on the lake. The little stores in the Sand Lake Heights area have just about everything you will need. This is a great cabin for a family get together, plenty of room, lots to do and the owner is a very great guy.

Charming cottage on really nice lake !

  • 5 of 5

Very clean & spacious living area with really nice view of beautiful Sand Lake. We had 9 people in our family plus a few friends stopping by to enjoy the great atmosphere and lake front living. Todd supplies just about everything you could think of accept food. Was nice of him to call after the first day to see if everything was going well or if there was anything we needed that wasn't provided. Area has many attractions to enjoy should you desire to take some side trips. We had a lot of fun and leave with some very sweet memories.

Perfect Lake House for the Summer

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week here and it was a superb rental. The house is much larger than it appears and spotlessly clean. We had lots of family visit us daily and the back deck was perfect for keeping an eye on the children swimming. The lake is beautiful and not crowded at all. The house is so well stocked with anything you could need. The neighborhood is quiet and well-kept. Just a perfect place to spend a summer day. We will be back.

Better every time!

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time that we have rented this home for a summer trip and Todd does such a great job with everything. Brand new deck on the back, new paint and flooring. It's always clean on arrival and we are so glad that we don't have to pack utensils, towels, sheets, etc.

The grill is out by the water off the deck and there are two picnic tables to eat outside. Super friendly neighbors and just about everything you need to enjoy a fun vacation.
