Amazing Family Getaway!
The minute we walked in the front door we felt like we were home. Amazingly beautiful home with all the amenities you could ever need located on a very private peninsula. Everyone was sad to leave and can’t wait to come back next summer, hands down best lake property I’ve seen in all of my travels!
The number of beds was not accurate
When will I receive my security deposit?
Dear Rod, The number of beds is and was accurate you just failed to read the details closely. Apologies that you didn’t see the separate guesthouse charges. In addition, your guest left vomit and urine throughout the bathrooms and your guests left the house a mess and the yard furniture scattered. Please do not return. Separately, Vrbo holds and refunds your security deposit directly. May I suggest you speak to them? We
Do not control this. Regards, J
Our family of 10 had a spectacular week at this wonderful family home. It was such a beautiful property and the house and cottage were beautifully outfitted. The property is on a point so you have lake views from almost every room. The attention to detail is amazing. We spent hours on the lake, waterskiing and fishing and relaxing and enjoyed the large lawn for frisbee games. The owner , John, was extremely helpful and accommodating. We can’t wait to come again next year! It is truly a one of a kind property. Janine from San Francisco, CA
Janine, it was such a delight meeting you all. I am so thrilled to be able to share this home with you and your family. You are certainly all welcome back and perhaps this time we can plan some good adventures for you. Best regards to all.
A perfect place to get away as a family, to reconnect
We had a group of 8 adults & 9 kids/young adults all together for a week. This was the perfect place to do that = plenty of space for everyone, two docks, a sauna and a jacuzzi - the kitchen was fabulous, every type of cooking item possible. And grocery and other stores not that far away. We brought some of our own games etc. but there were some there as well. A great time was had by all.
Beautiful home on an exquisite spot
We rented this property to host our mother and father's 50th wedding anniversary. Our party included 3 families for a total of 11 people, ranging in age from 16 to 72. The place swallowed us up with no problem and left room for extended family to visit us on the weekend. We had 26 for dinner on Saturday Night. We still didn't run out of space.
The kitchen is so well equipped, I think it has two of everything anyone would need. There are dishes, flatware, and glasses galore. The refrigerator swallowed up all our food for the week with room to store beverages as well. There is a commercial grade ice machine which kept up with our demands pretty well -- only on the hottest days did we need a run to town for a bag or two of ice. The dining table that easily accommodated us with some spillover to the porch when extra folks were there.
There are plenty of beds, bedrooms, bathrooms, towels, blankets, books to read, and games to play. And this is BEFORE going outdoors. The place is large enough that if you need to get away from the commotion, you can, but small enough that you are never far from the fun.
Outside you will find so many options of things to do you will never run out of options. There are docks on each side of the peninsula, one accommodating the pontoon and ski boat, the other just out over the water on the other side. I brought my fishing boat along and moored it here for easy access. Was convenient to plug my battery charger in the little boathouse that houses a sauna. There are hiking trails, a wide open space for lawn games, landscaping that is well maintained and beautiful. There are canoes and paddles available for your enjoyment, and the owner's son took several members of our party on a 3 hour canoe trip which they thoroughly enjoyed!
Speaking of that, the hosts (Owner's son and family) were incredible and ensured we had everything we needed, without being in the way or hovering. They were there when and if they were needed, and their entire focus was on making us feel welcome and accommodated. They were truly a blessing to our stay and became good friends by the end of the week. They also did a fantastic job with the weather, which was PERFECT the whole week of our stay.
In summary, I really can't say enough about this property. It is a high quality place, well worth the money paid. It is ideal for family get togethers and relaxing. We have discussed going back, it's that good!
It was our great pleasure to host you for such an important family event and hope you'll come see us in one of our many other properties. John Wright, owner, American Estate Villas.
We had the pleasure of spending five days at this beautiful home for a recent family vacation. We have four children age 16-24 and they all had a terrific time. The main house is immaculate and stocked with all the conveniences that make the stay here easy and stress free. There are beautiful views of the lake from every angle, a boat house with sauna which we enjoyed on several occasions, fishing gear and poles, two very fast jet skis that seat two each, a powerful pontoon boat, and a wake board boat that Ryan, the caretaker, would pilot for us all to enjoy wake/surf boarding. There is a large yard that accommodates yard games, as well as a large gas grill and outside fire pit. As a note, the caretaker lives on site, which was not an issue for us. He was available to drive the boat and made sure the jet skis were filled with gas. It made the stay so much easier and stress free! Our family agreed that this was one of the best family trips the we have had!
