Impressive House on the Lake!
We had a great stay. There is plenty of room throughout the house, with endless amenities and features! We enjoyed the game room, the theatre room, the screened porch, the beautiful views of the lake from the family room/dining room/kitchen and the fire pit by the lake. The property is expansive with beautiful area to walk and hike. The hosts were more than gracious. On multiple occasions they cleared the lake so the kids could ice skate. We really enjoyed our stay !
Family Together Time
This was an AMAZING home to share our Family Together Time. The floor plan of the home allowed for ample quiet space and privacy for our 4 adult children, their spouses, and a few grandkids. The kitchen was well stocked (loved the double ovens and easy-to clean counters). It was wonderful to be able to add extensions to the dining room table to seat our entire clan for dinners. The game room and huge TV were a hit on our one cloudy afternoon. The grounds were beautiful and so great that our young grandchildren (ages 3-7) didn't have to worry about stairs on their frequent runs from the house to the beach. The lake was perfect for our young swimmers and the selection of water toys was phenomenal! We used them all - the kayaks, paddle boards, paddle boat, and especially the Lily Pad! We rented a pontoon (Bremer) and did some cruising and swimming in the middle of the lake; the water was clear and beautiful. We brought family dogs and even THEY had terrific accommodations with the doggie door and fenced area. Angie tended to all the details of our visit perfectly and we were surprised and pleased to have a visit from the owner to check on us and say hello. All in all - it couldn't have been better! We have stayed in many VRBO's over the years but this was the first one our family voted unanimously to return to. Thank you for a fantastic week!
Wonderful memory maker ...
We've literally just returned from our cross-country return to Maryland, Virginia and DC and have unpacked .... I wanted to write this before I forget and get back into our day-to-day routine. Growing up in Minnesota, we are quite used to lakes and summer fun and come back 'home' every other summer to spend time with family ... but our stay at your home made this year a very memorable week and unforgettable vacation.
Angie - you are awesome and we appreciated all of your communication and help to make sure we knew everything about the house and that we were comfortable. Not long after we got there, we had a visit from Troy - who continued throughout the week to make sure we had everything we needed. The added touch of the call from the owners was top notch (even though I didn't get to talk to him, my son-in-law was very impressed and relayed the greeting).
Just the space of the house made it so nice for our group of 13 (6 under 8) feel as if we had enough privacy for each family, yet time and plenty of comfortable space when we were all gathered together. The bedrooms are large and very comfortable ... the covered porch was our favorite spot for breakfast with the little ones ... the large deck was great for lunch ... the living room was the favorite hang out for everyone when we were inside ... and we even had movie night downstairs on the 80" TV! We had so much fun outside on the lake that we couldn't get the kids to come in most days to eat! Although the weather got a bit hot we cooled off in the lake and were very comfortable inside. We rented a pontoon for the week, used the paddle boat and paddle boards every day ... and especially LOVED the lily pad. Can I just say how much I love Lake Sylvia too? We took the kids out to the middle of the lake and went swimming off the pontoon. The lake is incredibly clear and wonderful to swim in. The guys caught a few northern, crappies and sunnies, but had more fun just going out than the amount they caught. They made the mistake of leaving the pail of fish out one night and the critters appreciated their evening meal! Lesson learned :-). With our large group, we appreciated having double ovens for meals, the huge grill (!) and two sets of washers and dryers. We all went home with clean clothes! We hated to leave, but all good things must come to an end. Our 7 year old granddaughter said 'this was the BEST vacation EVER! That's what makes memories. Thanks for a great week!
Wow! Super Family Vacation...
Our first vacation to Minnesota but hopefully not our last. This was the perfect home for our three families. The grounds keeper, made a special effort to see that our week at Lake Sylvia was memorable, and helped us beyond our expectations. We also met the owner and contact person as well as the grounds keeper, all went beyond the call of duty to make our stay a really outstanding one.
This is a beautiful spacious home three story home, with privacy and beautifully kept grounds, really nice. With three floors, we each had our private space and in addition - there were lovely furnished places where we could all meet together as a family.
The kitchen was modern and large enough to have several people working together to make a meal, and is well supplied with all the dishes, utensils and cookware that you could possibly need.
There were many activities made available to enjoy the beautiful Clear Lake Sylvia. There was the paddle boat, paddle board, kayak, floating SUP mat and super swimming. The Jet Ski rental was also the favorite for us all. We enjoyed badminton on the lawn and there were many in door table games available.
Although Colorado has often been our vacation destination: we all think that this was our best family vacation ever.
