We came for our sons wedding from the Quad Cities and it was absolutely awesome. The house is beautiful, clean, it has everything you could possibly need. We had the best time staying at this property especially having all of our family friends over to enjoy the wonderful patio out doors!!! Top notch Beautiful place!!! Totally recommend this to everyone. When we return to shelbyville again for a stay we are there!!!! Thank you! Beautiful place!!!!
A beautiful immaculate home nestled in wooded area close to beach, boat dock, pool and downtown. We have rented from VRBO several times over the years and this home, by far, was the most accommodating. There were toys, books, games and puzzles that kept 7 grandkids, ages 2 - 20, entertained everyday. The outdoor patio, porch and relaxing areas were fully equipped with comfortable chairs, hammocks and rockers for all to enjoy. Our large family of kids and grandkids thought this home was perfect and requested we make this an annual gathering.
We had 22 family members getting together and this was a central location. The house slept all of us, they have several beds and several chairs pulled out to beds. We spent most of our time outside on the patio, which was spacious, and there was enough parking for all 11 cars. The beach was super close and clean. The owner responded quickly to all my question prior to our stay. We all enjoyed ourselves.
What a beautiful home! From the moment we arrived the attention to detail was evident. We were traveling from Maryland and arrived on a cold blustery evening. One of the owners met us at the home and even took the time to have the fire going. The home is clean and very well appointed. You will find everything you need and then some. The house is the type of place that is featured in a movie, the one we all dream of having. This home is the perfect place to gather family. It is truly a home away from home!
We used this house as a rally point to visit lots of extended family... and it was perfect. Three families stayed multiple nights, with lots of aunts, uncles, cousins and grandkids stopping by throughout the day. It never seemed crowded even though we had about 25 eating meals at a time a few times. The decor was phenomenal, and the amities were more than ample. There was even DirectTV and plenty of flat screens to watch all the bowl games! Everything about the place was classy, homey and comfortable.
My brothers and I are stationed east coast and west coast, so we don't get a chance to do this much, but we definitely want to do Kaskia Woods in the summer in a few years to check out Shelbyville Lake, which is only about a mile run away. (Oh yeah, we jumped into that on New Year's Day... 28 degrees air temp... no big deal!)
Summary: Loved it.
