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!

This house was set up for pure enjoyment. Big kitchen, extra fridge, lots of room. Lake was so great. Camp chairs and intertubes were a great touch.

Beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our family reunion at this property. There were enough bed rooms in this spacious home for us to spread out and not feel congested. The upgrades on the property were beautiful including new bedroom furniture, large flat screen tv's throughout the home, and a beautiful deck with hot tub. There was also plenty of yard space to play games and enjoy the fire pit at night. Also conveniently located to Lake Shafer. It was also clean and well supplied.

Great house

  • 5 of 5

This is a great house. Plenty of space for our 4 families. The owners pay attention to details. There are outdoor games, life jackets, chairs, wood for a fire and even an extra propane tank. If we choose Monticello for another family reunion this is the place we would stay.

Great Cousins Weekend

  • 5 of 5

I booked this property because it met the size and location needs of my family. We had travelers coming from central Michigan, Chicago, Nashville and Cleveland, so this fit the bill. The house is exactly as described! It was VERY clean, spacious, the yard and deck were perfect for outdoor fun, stocked with firewood and we even swam in the river. The owners are very prompt to answer your questions and were so easy to work with. It was absolutely perfect for our inaugural "cousins weekend". We plan on booking again next year too! We had just one misunderstanding...the house does not come stocked with toilet paper, hand soap nor garbage bags. Not a big deal because we ran into town to pick up those items and we will make sure to bring a stash next year. I would highly recommend this location.
