Perfect Birthday weekend

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful place to stay!

I booked this house for 30 of my friends for my husbands 30th birthday. We had a blast! The house sits on a huge piece of land which makes it very private. The lake was one of our favorite parts. It's close to the house and everyone enjoyed swimming!

Now, the house.. This is a one of a kind house. So much space for all our friends. The loft bedrooms were quiet and secluded. The hot tub is a nice plus!

Both kitchens were used to cook the meals. I would recommend bringing louder speakers. Since the place is secluded and there are no close neighbors, you are able to play loud music.. However the speakers in the house weren't loud enough once we had 30 people chatting in a room, it was hard to hear the tunes.

Everything else was above our expectations. The staff was super friendly on arrival and departure.

I can't wait to go back!

Great place for my brothers bachelor party!

  • 5 of 5

Lake View was a great location to have my brothers bachelor party! We had a group of twelve and we had plenty of space throughout the entire house, not to mention the 250 acres and 100 feet of Lake Front space as well! Everyone had a bed and most had their own private bedroom! Two kitchens meant keeping everyone fed during the weekend was easy and the massive gas grille was perfect for steaks! The walk to the lake is easy and a great place to relax and fish! We loved the manicured field by the house the best to play back yard games, perfect size for wiffle ball, Frisbee, you name it! Gale, and all of her employees that we came in contact with were pleasant and easy to deal with. I'm sure we will meet again, maybe we will try out one of the other resorts Gale has available. Thanks for a great weekend, the memories made there will never be forgotten!

Memorial Day Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We cannot say enough great things about this house! Although the pictures are nice, they do not show just how beautiful this house and property is. You have open pastures and fields as this was a ranch. We were a group of 23 singles and was very comfortable. There was plenty of room for all of us to spread out and not feel on top of each other. The layout of the house is open and spread out. The fire-pit was so cool and cozy, we used it every night there is one by the lake as well! We picnicked at the lake all day, while taking turns on the boats, brought some lake toys and had a blast. The path is modestly lit making it a comfortable walk even at night. Beds were comfortable and bedrooms were nice and spacious.

Kitchen was nice and spacious for us all to move around and there was an additional one upstairs.

Owner and management are easy to work with, prompt, friendly and make the renting process smooth.

Great Place for Friends & Family

  • 5 of 5

I had my bachelor party last year with a dozen of my closest friends and we had a blast. Whether it was hanging out by the lake or cooking great food and enjoying the outdoors, we had an awesome time. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a place to spend some time with either friends or family.

New Years Extravaganza

  • 5 of 5

We rented Lakeview for New Years and it was awesome! We had a group of 18 adult friends in our early to mid thirties, no children. Everyone loved this place. We couldn't believe how spacious it was, we never felt cramped or on top of each other and had room to spare. It was better than we imagined. It was like having two houses - two kitchens, dining areas and living rooms. We spent most of the time in the game room that is also huge and has a bar, pool table, tv, and a table for drinking games. It felt like we rented our own bar to celebrate the new year.

Gale was a lovely person to work with and she personally called to wish us a happy new year and make sure we were enjoying ourselves. Her team is great and very responsive to anything you need. I hope to rent another one of her properties again in the future.

Absolutely Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

Just got back from Lakeview yesterday and I really can't emphasize enough how wonderful our stay was. The property is everything you could want from a weekend getaway and we certainly will be back for another stay. Gale treated us like family and the staff was wonderful. Gorgeous views and absolute privacy helped to make this trip one of our most fun. There was so much room for all 20 of us (which is almost never the case) and it felt like a home away from home. The serenity of sitting by the lake and watching the sunrise will be a cherished memory for all of us. The care and warm welcome really made us feel special and when we do rent another house, I don't think there is another option; it will certainly be through Gale and her staff.
