Our home is on one of the 6 lakes in Emerald Lakes, Lower Deer Lake is the only natural lake in the community that was completely built by beavers and not man-made. On the far end of the lake is the beaver dam and to the left of our property are 2 intact beaver huts. Sometimes at dusk you may get a glimpse of a mom and her pup out for an evening swim. Even though our home is in a resort community, we are very secluded. We have 2 acres of land and we are the only home on the east side of the lake. You feel like you are away from it all, yet everything you need or want to do is still so close. There are deer, turkey, rabbits, foxes, beavers, ducks, geese and plenty of birds to keep you company. If you love nature, you'll love our home.

Wonderful family Weekend

  • 5 of 5

I wanted to do something special for my husband’s 70th birthday that included our children and grandchildren. I made the perfect choice when I decided to rent this cabin for a weekend. We were even able to keep this a surprise for my husband. Our three children and our 5 grandchildren all agreed that the entire weekend was a wonderful way to celebrate this special occasion.

The house was lovely, comfy, clean, well stacked with all essentials, and enabled all of us--ages from 70 to 1--to find lots of things to do. The large family room enabled some of us to watch TV, play board games, or just enjoy conversation. The outside areas were well kept and the views beautiful. We ate most of our meals on the deck since there was lots of room at the large table and amble chairs for all of us. The children especially enjoyed the game room downstairs and the large outdoor area to play and run. My husband and I liked sitting outside enjoying the gorgeous scenery and watching our grandchildren play ball, make s’mores and even go on a boat ride on the lake. The kids also enjoyed fishing from the dock

I would recommend families large and small to rent this beautiful house for a weekend or longer. My family and I hope to visit this lovely home again. It is a wonderful place to make memories—memories that we will all remember fondly.

We loved the house from the minute we walked in the door. The game room was awesome and the adults loved it as much as the two boys who were 10 & 13. We haven't played pin ball for many years and loved the Nintendo game. Space Invaders especially. We were a little disappointed that the fire pit was not on the deck as shown in the picture. but there was one in the yard that Joe so graciously allowed us to use if we used it responsibly, which we did. The view of the lake and the gliders in the gazebo were a huge plus for this property. The owners spared nothing in the furnishings of this home. The furniture was lovely and very rustic throughout the home.

If I had to give negative feedback, which really isn't a bad thing, it would be that the kitchen is a little on the smaller side and had most everything we needed. We are iced tea drinkers and there was not a pitcher to be found, but we made do with a bowl. Necessity is the mother of invention, lol.....The only other thing is probably just owner preference, but it seemed as though the master bathroom did not seem to match the décor of the rest of the house. No big deal, it worked which was the important point. Loved the fireplaces too. We would definitely stay there again and recommend it to other travelers.

Autumn Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Where to begin?! Lets just say my entire group in unison stated that we would be renting this beautiful log home time and time again for SURE! Not only is the actual home breathtaking, the outdoors surrounding it are perfectly secluded and gorgeous! The fall foliage landscaped the lake giving me picturesque views I will remember forever. The inside of the log home is everything one could want on a getaway. Very well equipped kitchen, impeccable rustic home decor and fireplaces (REAL ones, not the kind that you see behind glass haha) everywhere you looked. The Great Room was our favorite room to hang in with its gorgeous antler chandelier and comfy seating options. A close second would be a tie between the fire pit and the game room downstairs where many pinball challenges were held :) Overall, I could write a novel as a review but I think my point was made, RENT THIS PLACE, I promise you won't be disappointed. (Basement pull out couch mattress definitely needs to be updated but that's the only negative I can remember, honestly!)

Just a great place

  • 5 of 5

Went with 10 family members from 6 - 83.. This house was as advertised. What a great place to relax and enjoy some family time. From rowing around the lake ( had our own boat) to catching fish off the dock. Joe will answer all your questions you may have... We are already looking at which weekends we can go back...
