Why Shirley McAfee Vacation Rental Expert chose Oakham
I found this property at a yard sale 26 years ago and immediately knew this was my home. I rented with option to buy just two weeks after discovering this property and have put all my love and time into this property while raising my son Spencer here. We have shared our beautiful oasis with guests from all over the world. We are grateful for people to experience this wonderful space.

Beautiful location and a wonderful host
My friends and I held our yearly musicians retreat at the lake house last weekend, and we had a blast. Shirley was accommodating of our music recording retreat, which was a breath of fresh air. The House was clean and the grounds were tidied up in anticipation of our arrival. Even her little dog Ziggy was happy to have us around. Thanks for the memories.
It was our pleasure to have you and so happy you were able to create in our beautiful space. Can’t wait to hear the album. Congratulations on creating 9 songs. Please come again!
Property is very private, clean and relaxing.
This was our second time renting this property for a vacation. The house is very comfortable and clean. Having access to a paddle boat, canoe and row boat was a plus. Would definitely come back again!
Thank you Eileen and Bob and sons for being our guest once again. Glad you enjoyed yourself. Looking forward to seeing you again. Cheers Shirley
The location and access to the lake is great! The owner is very nice.
Accommodations are generally nice however the kitchen cookware and utensils are not acceptable. Good thing we brought our own pans. The property would provide a better experience if there was a nice dock to boat and fish from. Outdoor furniture needs repair/ replace and should be cleaned. Bathroom door had no lock. The ceiling fan in the living room very dirty.
Thanks for the positive review. Hope your stay at Indian Ranch after you left us was great. Next time please ask me for any assistance. I was here on the property and would have fixed or cleaned anything you were not happy with. Enjoy the rest of your summer. Be well and thanks for being our guest Shirley
Shirley Was Very Friendy
The property was beautiful, and I liked that my dogs could roam free with my supervision. Shirley little dog is adorable and very friendly! The kitchen was well stocked with plenty of dishes, pans, and utentals. The living room was nice and cool with the window AC, but the upstairs was was hot. The beds and pillows were so comfortable!
I was disappointed that the pictures on the site are nothing like in person. The pictures showed beautiful new furniture with a nice setup and large TV. We walked into a living room with old rundown couches, a very poor setup, and very small TV... looked like a completely different house. The bathroom had a bad smell as well. There is a very tiny third bedroom on the first floor with a dryer in it...no washing machine, although a washer was not advertised.
As far as the waterfall you can't see it at all. It has cement walls which completely block even a slight peek of the fall. Very industrial looking.
I recommend that the owner update the pictures so that you know what you will be walking into.
Theresa thank you for the positive review. If you walked to the brook you could actually get under the spillway that is 8 foot tall and enjoy the waterfall. I was on property all the time and would have assisted with any issues. I wish you asked for assist. I have never received a negative review of my living space before sorry you were not happy. We look forward to your coming again.
I can't say enough!!!!!
Our favorite place to take our family. Beside the fact that we love Shirley. No complaints.
Great weekend get away!
My wife and I stayed here Friday to Sunday, the owner Shirley was super accommodating and even helped me surprise my bride with fresh flowers waiting upon arrival. The house was neat and clean and had everything we could possibly need for our time there. The best part of the house is the location, it’s right in a cove with nobody but a dam on the side, the dam area is loaded with good bass.. the owner provided boats for use although I’d recommend cleaning them up a bit before heading out.. my only gripe with the property was the amount of sap all over everything. There’s some massive pines shading the property and needs everywhere. I couldn’t escape it. One benefit to the property is that it is dog friendly, although our neighbors had a dog out also and ours spent most of her time making us chase her. Also pet owner beware there’s massive snakes on the dam.. which is to be expected being on a lake. All in all we had a great weekend here and would most definitely rent again! Thanks a lot Shirley for the awesome weekend.
Loved having you as my guest! It gives me hope about true love again and so romantic with the flower petals on the bed for your bride. Super cute dog and beautiful bride. you both were very respectful and beautiful. You both are welcome to return any time....Hug
The snakes are American Water Snakes and are docile and harmless. They have lived here for years and we feel a nice addition to our property.
