An hour in, we were planning our next visit! The layout of this home is so beautiful, combining private spaces for our introverts to sneak away, with plenty of general gathering spaces for the rest. We were fortunate to have incredible weather the entire stay, so we started mornings on the deck with coffee and conversation and ended each day gathered around the fire. The lake views are truly amazing, and the house is set back from the water and surrounded by trees, providing a nice feeling of seclusion. The dock, the kayaks, the hammock - all helped provide us with an ideal experience. Had the weather been rainy, the inside is so beautifully appointed with TV's, games, and books that we would not have been lacking for activities. Mark and Theresa were so easy to work with - responsive to questions and providing ample information about not only the house, but the surrounding area. Check out time was 1pm and,after clean up,we sat on the deck until 12:57, soaking up every minute before reluctantly driving away. Perfect.
My wife and I spent a weekend here with another couple for a mini getaway, it was just what we were looking for! Newly renovated, very clean and comfortable. We each had private bathrooms upstairs and there is another on the main floor. There are great accommodations to cook meals or barbecue without having to leaving once you get there. We roasted hot dogs over a campfire under a starry sky overlooking the bay, it was picture perfect. This was a "one tank get away" for us, not too far from home but far enough away to feel like a vacation. It is very reasonable for all that is included. I would recommend it and actually have to many friends.
This is a great place to stay whether you are a couple or family. We love waking up to the sun coming through the windows. Looking out you can see the fishermen on the lake, ducks swimming in formation and kayakers quietly rowing along. It is so peaceful to sit out on the patio with a cup of coffee and breakfast or enjoying a game of horseshoes. At night you can lounge around the outdoor fire pit embellishing family stories. The house itself has a beautiful open floor plan with a fireplace exposed to both the living and dining areas. I give this house an A1 rating for location and comfort. We will definitely return.
Accommodations are excellent. Rustic surroundings combined with up-to-date facility made this a most enjoyable stay. Beautiful sunsets to behold.
