About Shawna Sims

Mr. Westby Passed away in July of 2012, with the desire this home would be enjoyed, and fond memories would be gathered for many, many years.

The house was set up for rentals beginning in June of 2013.

Shawna Sims purchased this house in 1950

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.

Another wonderful vacation!!!

  • 5 of 5

We just completed our 6th stay at this wonderfully beautiful property. I'm always sad to leave. The description of the property is accurate but the pictures do NOT do it justice. The house is very well stocked, has all the amenities you could ask for, loads of space, very private but convenient to town, and has been very well maintained over the years. It seems that every time we visit, they have added something new. The property managers are very accommodating and a dream to work with!

Wonderful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful home! We had Christmas at the lake. Grand Serendipity was kind enough to get a pre lit Christmas tree and some ornaments so the kids could decorate it. Even though the weather was warm, we enjoyed the great fireplace and roasted marshmallows. The pool table in the guest house was also a big hit. We were missing some but the ones that made it loved the place. Plenty of room and the loft, wow, the kids loved sleeping there. I bet that during the summer this place would be awesome. We will definitely stay there again! One of the best Christmases ever!
