Our Home Away. From Home

  • 5 of 5

We have recently returned from a glorious family weekend vacation at Finigan's Rainbow. It was perfect. The only way it could've been more perfect is if we had had the time to spend a week, and had the opportunity to meet Kate.

Due to last minute planning on our part, there was much uncertainty. The owner, Kate Walsh, was gracious, helpful, cooperative, and most accommodating. She put us at ease and make our planning go smoothly.

Finigan Rainbow's accommodations are lovely and were very comfortable for our family of eleven. It truly was "our home away from home". The paddleboat and water slide were big attractions to our group. The air hockey, fooseball, Barbie dolls and toys were added wonders. We only had time to admire the stack of family games.

Kate goes the "Extra Mile". Whatever you may have forgotten Kate has it there for you. Although we never met, by the time our short vacation had concluded, Kate was a new friend. Thank you Kate for EVERYTHING!!!

You can't go wrong by renting Finigan's Rainbow. You will have a relaxing, memorable time!!! We would love to do so every year.

A Place to Suit all Ages

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our time at the lake house very much. More than plenty of space for our group of 11, ages 4 to 68. The downstairs slept our five kids 10 and under with room to spare. The downstairs space is a kid's dream-bunking in with cousins, with games and TV. and walk out patio.

The main floor, with walk out lake view patio as well, is perfect for morning coffee. Family dinners at the picnic table. Or just sitting.

The lake, although no beachfront per se, is shallow enough for small children, and sandy, at least half if not more, of the length of the pier.

More upscale accommodations might be some peoples' choice, but for us and those who enjoy a homey atmosphere, particularly with active children, Finigan's will be give a very satisfying experience.

Great home for a big family!

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for my large family and group of friends! Plenty of room for sleeping and the kitchen was stocked with every utensil and item we needed for cooking the whole week. The float with the slide out in the water entertained the kids for hours and hours everyday as well as the paddle boats. The neighbors were great too! I recommend this home for rental and I hope to be able to rent it again!
