Fabulous 2nd Stay

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing trip (for the 2nd time)!

We rented from Larry a couple of years ago and had a wonderful time. After taking last year off, we decided to try this amazing house out again and were not disappointed. The house comfortably fit our extended family of 9 (actually 10 with a baby) with three adult couples in the bedrooms and the three kids (11, 8, and 7) sleeping in the upstairs bunk bed and daybed. The common space was excellent and allowed for enough room for all of us to spread out and get away from each other if needed. The kids spent a lot of time downstairs playing ping pong, pool, air hockey, and foosball. They also appreciated the new bathroom (didn't have it when we visited a couple of years ago) in the basement.

One of the biggest highlights of this rental is the property the house sits on. We all enjoyed boating on the lake. While we did enjoy the paddle boat and rowboat, we also brought our canoe and two kayaks. In addition, the kids enjoyed walking out to the end of the peninsula and built a fort in the woods by the driveway. We all took advantage of the dock and spent a lot of time fishing from it. While using minnows, and some worms, we were able to catch a ton of fishing including many sunfish, at least a dozen perch, a few bullhead, and about 10 bass.

This house is beautiful and super clean. The dining room table comfortably sat eight, with three more seats at the kitchen island. We spent countless hours playing games in the sunroom off the back of the house. We even enjoyed eating morning breakfast overlooking the lake from the porch.

All in all, we were just as impressed as we were the first time we stayed. Larry has an amazing house and goes above and beyond to take care of his guests. We will definitely be back for more stays.

Absolutely gorgeous!

  • 5 of 5

Larry and Betty's home is absolutely gorgeous!!! They met us upon arrival and gave us the grand tour along with info we needed.

It was a wonderful week with our daughters and their families. We spent most of our time on the lake, the paddle boat and row boat were a lot of fun! Our 3yr old and 7month old grandchildren really enjoyed the private beach. They also enjoyed the community pools and beaches.

We do plan on returning! Every season would be great to spend in this beautiful home!

Thank You Larry and Betty!

Fantastic house that was like owning a private lake!

  • 5 of 5

Larry and Betty could not have been easier to deal with and we appreciated them meeting us upon arrival to give us the lay of the land.

The house is really nice with high quality finishes, immaculately clean, and comfortably furnished.

The location was awesome. No one next to you, surrounded by water, and great access to the water by the sandy beach and dock.

We used the paddle boat and row boat provided, and caught several fish right off the dock.

Thanks for a great place to spend time with family and friends. We would highly recommend this home to anyone.

Beautiful house, perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a spectacular time here! Larry and Betty were so helpful and welcoming. We had 7 people and the house easily accommodated us all. The house was extremely clean and kept well. The game room kept us entertained for hours, along with fishing on the boats and the dock-- we were able to catch a lot of fish. The kitchen was stocked with everything we needed. It was the perfect vacation stay with beautiful views. We can't wait to come back!

Beautiful lakefront house on peaceful mountaintop lake

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely 5 day vacation filled with fishing off the dock, boat rides, relaxing on the dock and deck, listening to frogs at night and exploring local hikes.

The house is gorgeous, very well equipped, spacious and clean. Lots of kids amenities. We wanted for nothing! And it's a convenient location.

The lake is beautiful and not overcrowded. Great fishing off the dock and fun to explore.

And the owners, Larry and Betty, were so warm, welcoming, attentive and helpful!

We hope to be back soon! Thanks for sharing your house with us, Larry and Betty!!!

Great family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful, relaxing vacation while staying at the lake house. The owners are very attentive and were very quick to fix an AC problem. They have a beautiful home and it is fully equipped with everything a family needs. The lake views from all angles of the house was amazing. It easily accommodated our family of 6 adults and 1 teen. The game room provided lots of opportunity for family/sibling rivalry! It is centrally located with grocery stores and attractions pretty close by. We had a wonderful week!
