                                                                      Steve D.

                                                                      The accommodations offers everything a family could ask for. Beautiful home and outstanding lake views. Larry has done an amazing job with the outside decks, accent lighting and landscaping which made for a very relaxing environment. Sitting in the hot tub overlooking the lake aided in the ability to relax.

                                                                      The activities such as board games, outside games, arcade games and pool table made for some memorable family time. Also water activities such as kayaking, stand up paddle boarding, paddle boat and fishing. Not enough time to take in all the opportunities.

                                                                      I highly recommend this property just arrive, relax and enjoy.

                                                                      Rachel W.

                                                                      We had such a great time, wished we could have stayed longer! Lots to do around the house with the downstairs game room. Decks are beautiful, would love to come back when it’s a little warmer so we can enjoy all the outdoor water activities.

                                                                      Awesome lake house with everything you need

                                                                      April A.

                                                                      Owners are accessible and gracious. House is gorgeous with the most comfortable beds and fluffiest towels. Decks to lake are amazing with even a Tiki bar. Games room fully outfitted and a definite party atmosphere with huge bar and plenty of board games and puzzles. Fireplace on main floor is beautiful and stocked with wood. Kitchen fully stocked and I mean fully. Master suite on top floor has floor to ceiling windows making waking up to a lakeview sunrise a wonderful experience. Huge garden tub but also the hot tub which was clean and hot.

                                                                      Can’t say enough about how nice this place is.

                                                                      Grandparents, kids and grandkids all had a wonderful Thanksgiving in this beautifully appointed home on the lake. (Our two granddaughters each caught their first fish!) The house itself was gorgeous and the extensive decking provided easy access to the water. We would wholeheartedly recommend!

                                                                      Owner's Response:

To top it off that's fantastic the girls each caught a fish, way to go! We always do some improvements during the winter months. So you will be surprised next time you come. We'd love to host you and your beautiful family again....Hope you all have a very Merry Christmas!

                                                                      Beautiful and lot's of outdoor space to enjoy.

                                                                      Tina B.

                                                                      This was even more beautiful in person. There are lot's of outdoor seating areas and a screened in gazebo to enjoy the view of the lake. We even enjoyed a kayak trip at the end of October. The kitchen was well equipped and the layout of the home was perfect. I especially enjoyed watching the planes come in on the water, "don't see that every day in Ohio". It was cooler weather so the basement pool table and video games gave us something to do with our visitors when it was too cool for them to sit outside. I feel very blessed that our family was able to stay there and the owners shared their piece of heaven on earth. I would love to come back. Great place even if you have more people, there was more room to spread out on many levels, indoors and out.

                                                                      Owner's Response:

That's how we feel about Saunderosa........We feel especially blessed having wonderful guests such as yourselves come to stay at Saunderosa and truly enjoy all she has to offer. We do hope you can come back, maybe sometime in the summer when you can truly enjoy the lake. We do hope we can host you again! Your hosts, Toni & Kelly

                                                                      William J.

                                                                      Each floor has a full bath. The master bedroom upstairs has a king bed with a shower and large garden tub. The main floor level (as you walk in) has 2 bedrooms with queen beds. They share a bath with a very nice shower. The lower walkout level has the fourth bedroom with a full bath with a tub/ shower and queen bed.

                                                                      It was great not to provide our own bath towels and linens! The luxury linens were very nice and I had no detergent sensitivity issues which at times can be an issue for me.

                                                                      The great management staff, agent, and home owners were very responsive and helpful. I can't say enough positive things about the house!!!

                                                                      Owner's Response:

We try our hardest to make your stay as comfortable as ever and tell clients "to make Saunderosa your home away from home". Do come back and see us again sometime. We are constantly doing improvements to the house and property so you will see some changes. We'd love to host you again! Hope you have great holidays..... Thanks again, Your team at Saunderosa....
