Awesome lake house!
Beautiful clean and luxurious house with great layout on a lovely clean lake awesome for fishing and swimming. Views from all the big windows in the house are amazing. House had comfy beds, good quality liners and towels. Kitchen was well equipped for cooking and entertaining. Homeowner was friendly and super responsive. Would love to return!

Words cannot describe the beauty of this home! So much fun swimming off the dock, great fishing and we loved the tandem kayak. Went with friends for Labor Day and it was an amazing experience. Highly highly highly recommend.

We loved our vacation!
Our family felt so at home in this beautiful and well appointed vacation home. The furnishings are top notch and the lake views are stunning through the many windows. We thoroughly enjoyed sitting on the deck drinking coffee in the morning, lunch in the afternoon, and relaxing with a good book. Chris and Julie are attentive, kind, and very helpful. Thank you so much!
