Wonderful! Beautiful 4 bedroom home with all the amenities you would need!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. We had 4 couples who vacation together each summer. The house was very nice, comfortable beds, nice pool table, great deck and right in a cove off the lake. The dock was great as well, the guys went fishing and caught a few. Very relaxing. Joyce and Phil are great hosts. Thanks so much for sharing your beautiful home with us.

Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This house is located in a great spot on the lake. It is in a protected no wake cove right off the main channel. The house was well-maintained and very clean, and the owner Joyce was very accommodating. We had eight adults in the house and had plenty of room and did not feel cramped at all. I took my own boat there and the boat ramp is just down the street and very convenient. We had a fantastic time and would definitely consider staying at this house again if it was available when we plan our next trip.

We really enjoyed the house, especially the dock and cove.

  • 5 of 5

The home was well equipped and comfortable. A couple things you might want to check on - the shower door in the laundry room leaks, so when someone uses that shower, there was quite a bit of water on the floor. And the gutter over the side door has a leak in the seam right above the door. We happened to be setting in the "man cave" while it was raining hard, and we saw a steady stream of water hitting the wood trim on the left of the door. Those are not complaints; just thought you'd like to know!

Thanks for a great vacation.

The Steve Hudson family.

Bachelorette Weekend

  • 5 of 5

The house was nicer than we imagined and we had such a great weekend on the lake! The weather was perfect so we spent most of our time in the water by the dock (that slide isn't just fun for little kids). The house was the perfect size for our group of 9. Plenty of space and the extra fridge came in handy for all of our food and keeping our beverages cold. Joyce was helpful in recommending shuttle services for us to also enjoy the lake outside of our nice cove. The house is also surrounded by friendly neighbors, we enjoyed visiting with the others in the cove. We didn't want to leave and most definitely will be coming back! Thank you Joyce, everyone was so pleased with our accommodations, it really made our trip so enjoyable!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the nice review. I am glad your group enjoyed our fun neighbors. Swimming off the dock is the number one activity for everyone. So glad that you had good weather. Hope to see you next year. Joyce

Nautical Nest is wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

This home is very convenient and comfortable. The kitchen is well stocked andfhaving room to spread out with the additional living space in the lower level is great. The dock is well taken care of and a great quiet cove. Will definitely be back!
