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!

Perfect for family reunion!!!

  • 5 of 5

16 members of my extended family spent a week here for a family reunion. The house was wonderful, plenty of room for everyone. The extra shared living space in the basement was great for when the older kids wanted to get away. The house was very well stocked including yard and water toys in the back porch. We especially loved the hot tub, a perfect spot to end the day!!

Perfect gathering spot

  • 5 of 5

We had family from the north and south who met in the middle. Perfect place for all. Parents and kids could go into town for fishing, boating, putt putt, to name a few. Adults enjoyed inside and outside sitting in the shade by the river or playing cards around the kitchen table. In the eve we gathered for s'mores, singing to the guitar, and family team trivia. Ran the washer and dryer each night to keep up with kids suits and towels. Used the grill and the kitchen for most meals. The hot tub was enjoyed by everyone and easy to care for. Plenty of garbage cans to fill for a large group. And the teens had fun playing with the x box and watching movies. Wonderful place with comfy beds and functional everything in the kitchen! Owners and care takers easy to work with! Not one person was disappointed. Very worthwhile gathering place. We would stay here again.

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

The house was more and better than even the pictures showed. There was plenty of space for my family to spread out and not irritate each while still spending time together. I would definitely rent this house again, if I travel to Indiana again. Owners were just a text away if there were any problems and extremely friendly.
