“Excellent Location, Great House with wonderful amenities... but it needs some minor TLC”
Reviewed August 4, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Overall we had a great vacation at DCL and fantastic stay at Waterfront Dreams. We were there with an extended family of 15, including 7 children. The house has plenty of space for 15+, a great location right on the lake (with a boat slip) and is situated in a wonderful community, with amenities such as tennis, golf and a stocked pond for fishing. The pool at the house is fantastic and the two hot tubs were great.

My only negative comment would be that the house needs some minor TLC. It looks like a house that has been a rental for years, and is starting to show it's age. For example, while the picnic tables are very usable, they are both extremely warped. I think a fresh coat of paint -- both inside and out, along with an update to a few other items would make the house much more attractive.

In the end, I would return to this house and I would also recommend it to others. We had a great vacation and really liked the house. However, for the price, I think a little TLC would go a long way towards transforming this 4 star review into 5 stars.

We attended a wedding 3/4 days celebration, and stayed in one of 4 houses rented by the wedding hosts, the house we stayed was Waterfront Dreams, had wonderful location right at waterfront, it was beautifully appointed to accommodate a large crowd, managed by Riley Vacation Rentals. The house had an indoor in ground pool, as well as an indoor and an outdoor hot tubs, pool table as well, 2 family rooms and large screen TVs, TV in each of the 8 bedrooms & 8 baths, each suite had its own bathroom, elevator as well.
