Lake Carlos Stay

  • 5 of 5

We were very happy with our stay at your home. The setup with the bedrooms was a good fit for us and the kitchen worked well, too. We liked the shallow clear water by the dock that was good for our young grandkids. It was so nice to have access to the pontoon and it worked well for us to do some fishing and jumping in the water in the middle of the lake. The firepit worked well, too. I am trying to get feedback from our kids and that will help us decide about whether we return. 3 of the families drove from SD and it is quite a drive, but that is not your fault. The other problem that we have is that I see that you are asking families to reserve for a week and I am not sure if the kids will want to take a whole week off from work. You might consider letting us know if you would happen to have some shorter weeks. Thanks for your help and for always getting back to me. We have always camped before and this is so much easier with little kids and with the unpredictability of the weather.

What an awesome find!

  • 5 of 5

This place was amazing. It had every single thing that you would need. The beach on the property was awesome because it had a sand bottom. You could easily stay around the cabin all day or travel to one of the other lakes near by. Having a winery within 10 miles wasn't a bad plus either. Will be booking again!

This was our 3rd year staying at this Cabin. We have yet to be disappointed. The owners are fantastic. The house is always clean and it has everything we need. Beautiful spot on the lake. We are lifetime returners that is for sure!

wonderful for a weekend away!

  • 4 of 5

we had a wonderful stay. The property was well kept, clean and fully stocked. The Dock, patio and lawn chairs were our favorite. Leslie was super nice to deal with, she was quick to respond to questions and very professional. We did need a couple blow up mattresses because sleeping two on the pull out sofas was a little too tight, but that didn't bother us. Thank you for a wonderful girls weekend away!

Well kept, comfy cabin on Lake Carlos.

  • 5 of 5

The property was very well maintained inside and out. The property manager was responsive and accommodating to our group. It was close to town and had a wonderful lakefront.

East Lake Carlos

  • 5 of 5

8 guys on a fishing get-together ran into some rough weather but found the bean bag boards in the heated detached garage a wonderful change up. The large kitchen table proved to be an excellent spot for a poker game. Pictures of the property made it seem a little bit larger but it was still very accommodating. I would definitely choose to rent this property again. The owner was very easy to get ahold of when I had questions.
