Perfect place for a large family!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family (of 20) had a wonderful time over Thanksgiving week at Grand Serendipity. There were enough activities to keep all 10 grandchildren happy. We would all like to go again especially during the summer.

Perfect for a Large Group

  • 5 of 5

We have a group of families and friends that travels together once a year. We originally go to a lodge on the Buffalo River, but they had to cancel after they were hit by a tornado. We are all very fond of the property we usually visit, so we were concerned about going somewhere new. This place blew us out of the water. We loved everything about it. The ample space was perfect for multiple families. There were so many amenities for us to enjoy. Ping pong, volleyball, basketball, fire pit, pool, etc. The kids loved being able to run around and the adults did, too! Thank you for accommodating!

Excellent property

  • 5 of 5

The manager was very pleasant. She acted promptly to fix the upstairs A/C and move their boat so we could use the slip. The property had numerous amenities: basketball court, volleyball net, pool table, games, ping pong table, large water floater, wifi, and cart to haul people/gear to dock.

Great accomadations for my large family

  • 5 of 5

The owners provide so many things to do and "toys" to keep us all happy. The large open house was great for us all to hang out or the large patio space to enjoy. The bedrooms were very comfortable and every room having a flat screen was a plus (for the rainy day). Also, we have many young kids which all loved sleeping in the large room together. Overall, this house was one of the best rentals we've stayed at and would highly recommend it. Thanks again!

Accommodations made our reunion a big hit!

  • 5 of 5

Our family reunion was a big hit and the accommodations were a large part of it. The pictures on the website don't do the property justice! The proximity to the water and the big deck with fire pit were just a couple of the highlights during our stay. The property is beautiful, the bedrooms were all well appointed and very comfortable.

The amount of activities available to guests gave everyone in our group options for fun. I know we'll be looking to book this property again for our next group gathering.

We had one very small issue and when we called management, it was immediately addressed which was very much appreciated. Overall, this property is a gem.
