A beautiful location and a very comfortable home

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful visit to Ashford Lake. The house was very clean and was just as described. We enjoyed wonderful breakfasts cooked just as we requested. The owners provided many personal touches to make our stay comfortable and relaxing. We took a nice walk around the lake and enjoyed the hottub.

Thank you for a great vacation on Ashford Lake! Anyone would enjoy staying here!

The Ashford Lake house provides a quite, peaceful retreat. Although we didn't use them, the hosts provide several items for se on the lake, paddle boards etc. The hosts are very friendly and accommodating.

The stay was quite memorable! The owners were phenomenal! Breakfast was exquisite. The majority of the residential utilities and amenities were open and available for use. My girlfriend and I are already planning on returning next year! The best part for me was the hot tub. Sshh!!

Relaxing, romantic get away!

  • 5 of 5

I can not say enough great things about Denise, Matt and their gorgeous home.

They are the perfect hosts, welcoming, warm and accommodating. The house was clean comfortable and well maintained.

Everything is provided here for your weekend pleasure. Bring your clothes, leave your worries behind.

There were homemade muffins awaiting our arrival and a welcoming basket in our room. Denise and Matt made breakfast each morning. Plenty of fresh fruit, herbs from the garden, homemade lemon zucchini bread, homemade blueberry muffins, (with fresh picked blueberries), Greek omelets, scrambled eggs and hash browns a la Denise!

She would have made anything, we chose eggs.

Conversation was interesting and lively as we shared past travels and local entertainment.

Denise and Matt are as available as you would like them to be.

They set up a fire pit ON the water for us each evening. It was relaxing, romantic and beautiful to sit by the water, moon lit night, fire blazing on the water, all sitting under the fairy lights of the pergola. Denise suggested peddle boating on a moon lit night also, quite romantic!

We did not tour the area as we are from nearby. We stayed at the house all weekend, enjoying the accommodations. Plenty of decks and chairs overlooking the lake, comfortable sunroom, living room and a hot tub, complete with bathrobes. Peddle boat, standing paddle boards, kayaks and life jackets provided.

The property is filled with lovely plants, flowers and cute fairy gardens.

A perfect retreat house on the water with great hosts. We couldn't have asked for more.

I would recommend anyone looking to get away and relax to come stay here. Couples, individuals, business persons, small families anyone needing to relax, I guarantee you will be well taken care of and relaxed when you leave.

We are already looking to return to this wonderful house and enjoy Denise and Matt's company.

Thank you so much for an unforgettable weekend!
