Fishing Tournament

  • 5 of 5

We chose this place as headquarters for several teams in the annual Anglers Choice Regional bass tournament. The house was incredible with plenty of room for everyone. There was also plenty of parking for all our rigs. Parking is always the problem but not here. We ate well and utilized the outdoor grills as well as the fire pit. The weather and the lake did not cooperate at all. One of our teams did however win a boat. We will plan on staying there again if our tournament trail goes back to Grand Lake.

The setting was lovely, right out of a picture.

  • 4 of 5

It was lovely, clean and well stocked. The kids room upstairs was great and they enjoyed it. We had to go check on

them and call them down for meals. Smile The fireplace was great and we grilled outside several times. It's a must do. I wish we had done it in summer as the outside is the best.

Christmas Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed here for Christmas. There were around 20 of us. This is the most beautiful place. Our kids and 13 grandkids absolutely loved it. The kids had the whole upstairs with plenty of beds. They provide everything you would need. The beds are so comfortable we couldn't get some out of bed. The location is great and we had rib crib cater our dinner. The location is private which is good for my loud bunch on our karaoke. I would recommend this home for anyone with a large group. The homes were very clean and the service was excellent. I called the owners with a few questions and they were very helpful. We also went to Harber Village which was down the road. We plan to make this a yearly Christmas getaway..can't wait to go back..

Thanksgiving 2016

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time to Grand Serendipity! Our family just spent Thanksgiving at this beautiful home and made so many special memories. Everything about his home is perfect, from the décor to the most comfortable beds, the most well stocked kitchen we've ever had, the views are spectacular. We enjoyed the fireplaces, fire pits, pool table, ping pong table, fishing off the boat dock! We would highly recommend this home and plan to stay again in the future.

Spent a wonderful 3 days there with immediate family of 23. Fun for the whole family from swimming, badmitten, hanging by the fire, playing cards and just enjoying family time without all of lifes distractions. Ages of the group ranged from 1 to 81.

Great place.

Wonderful location and environment. Home is sizable and quirky with lots of art.

  • 5 of 5

Well maintained and spacious with numerous amenities not available in other properties. The night sky alone is worth it, although ample wildlife sightings are up there too. All ages will enjoy staying here. There's plenty of room for family time or a quiet respite from the action. It's secluded, but less than 15 minutes from town making it convenient for dinner out or picking up items that were left out of the suitcase. This property is loved and it shows.
