Perfect, perfect place to make family memories!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Tonia made making the reservation a breeze! She was very responsive to emails and answered each and every question I had quickly! The home when we walked in was so so welcoming and the home was super clean and organized. It was everything and more then what was advertised!

The outside area was absolutely perfect for our large group! Plenty of wonderful lawn space to enjoy provided lawn games. Many many chairs available for us to enjoy the firepit... And, a nice deck near the river and a concrete walkway along the water allowed us to fish and get close to the water and sunsets!

The kitchen is modern and any and everything you need to prepare and eat family meals was available! Big screen TVs to watch the disappointing IU game and furniture that was very very comfortable!

We so enjoyed our whole family gathering- the young and old- for a weekend at this fabulous home! Everywhere on the property, inside and out, we were able to enjoy one another and make memories to last a lifetime. We thank Tonia for making this possible and making it so easy for us to gather.

Until another time, thanks so much for opening and sharing your beautiful home- truly a memory maker!

Great place for large gathering

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home to accommodate our large family over Thanksgiving and we were not disappointed. There was plenty of room to spread out and everyone was comfortable. Owners were attentive and everything was as described. I would definitely recommend this property!

The house was perfect for all of us! The outdoors is absolutely breathtaking. We enjoyed everything about the house and the grounds. Anything we needed was just minutes away. Definitely a place we will come back to as well. The owners were very nice and helpful. The house was very clean and well taken care of!! Thank you so much!! And the hot tub was clean and a great way to sit outside and enjoy some good chats!!

Lots of room to spread out or come together

  • 4 of 5

We were a group of 6 couples and there was a suitable room for each couple (basement room was a little chilly but blankets and extra pillows were available). The main level living space easily held all of us without feeling crowded, the yard was a great size for games like corn hole and can jam. There are lots of stairs to get around the property, especially to use the outdoor space. The view of the river with the fall colors was beautiful and we enjoyed the hot tub. The only complaint I heard from the group was that there wasn't much to do in the area, the property met all of our expectations. The owners were very responsive and helpful, even during our stay, with questions. Overall a very positive experience, I would rent from them again!

Great place for family fun!

  • 5 of 5

Just got home from a wonderful two-day, three-night stay on Lake Safer. Our cousins' reunion included my adult children and two nephews, along with their families. We had nine adults, six children, and one baby in this spacious home. The property was very clean and well maintained. We especially loved the open kitchen/family room area because it allowed lots of people to be involved in meal preparation and cleanup. Most of the kids slept together in the large upstairs bedroom (that included with multiple beds), and they played happily up there for much of a very rainy day. The second day was sunny, so we all enjoyed the spacious backyard and fire-pit for marshmallows and 'smores. Adults even got in an enjoyable evening in the hot tub. Our hosts sent easy-to-follow instructions for arrival and departure and were more than helpful when we had questions. All in all, I can highly recommend this property. Everyone agreed that it was a great choice for family fun!

Great house and property for our college reunion!

  • 5 of 5

This house is huge and we appreciated all the bathrooms for 9 women! It is a great place to relax with the waterfront, hot tub, fire pit and all the space in the house. We had great fall weather and got to take advantage of all that was offered. This was exactly what we were looking for when looking for a place to have our biennial reunion. It would also be great for multiple families. We didn't try the treehouse but it looked fun!
