Loved Lake Columbia!!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay on Lake Columbia was awesome! Our family made many memories and look forward to returning next year. In all the years we have rented lake places.....this was our best experience. Diane was very easy to work with and her response time was incredible!

Look no further for a great time!

Pleasantly Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

This has been our 3rd time renting this home on Lake Columbia. Beautiful home and views of the lake. Large back yard with fire pit made for some fun evenings. Mom struggled to walk to the boat on her own but was able to get a golf cart to get her back and forth from house. Everything is very clean and Diane is always accessible by phone or email for any questions. Love the fact that the kids can have the whole bottom floor to themselves, mom has her bedroom/bath on the main floor to avoid steps and the rest of us are all on the 3rd floor with good views of lake from master. Cute shopping in Brooklyn for the girls and good variety of restaurants to choose from. Grocery store just 10 - 15 minutes away. Artisan Wells is a must for dinner and don't forget to go to Time Again for a great girl's shopping experience! Thanks Diane!

It was great

  • 5 of 5

We were in town for my son's wedding. Since family came from all over, it was also a mini-reunion. We found the home superb. The views of the lake are magnificent. We highly recommend.

Wonderful family reunion!

  • 5 of 5

Prior to our stay, Diane was very helpful in answering our questions quickly and accurately.

We had our family reunion here and it was very special. There is ample room for larger family gatherings, as well as spaces for smaller groups to play games, chat, etc. The layout of the home is very flexible for sleeping arrangements as well. It has been recently remodeled and we found it in excellent condition. The air conditioning wasn't working for part of a day, but Diane was on that right away and it was fixed immediately. Thank you, Diane!!

We also rented the pontoon boat which allowed us to swim in various parts of the lake, since the home is on a canal which allows for younger children to wade, but not to actually swim. The surrounding area is very picturesque but we didn't even have time to explore since we were busy on the water. Maybe next time...

The listing was very accurate in giving us an idea of what our experience would be like, but it was even better! We are hoping to rent this again next summer and again make very special memories.

Lake house

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week and were pleasantly surprised when we walked into the house. It was great to have three levels so different activities and family members could have their own space without feeling crowded.
