Loved the updated interior, spotless, large rooms and large common area. Loved the proximity to the water. Overall A+ house!

I really loved this house! On a quiet section of the lake with great kitchen, amenities, and bedrooms. Basement was a bit musty, but overall the house was very clean and bug and cobweb free.

We loved the location. Very secluded with beautiful views. The little cove was perfect for swimming and hanging out on the dock.

One thing we did note. Some of the deck boards are beginning to rot. This could pose a safety issue in the future!

Overall, great place to stay. Thank you for everything!
Manager response:

Loved our extended weekend stay at this home. It was very comfortable with thoughtful amenities throughout (including strong fans and every kitchen supply). The layout was great for our multiple family group. The location is one of the best features - end of cove with little boat traffic which was great for enjoying the lake from the dock. Easy walk to dock. Thank you for sharing your home. Would definitely stay here again.

We loved our stay at this home. With the private dock and hot tub, my kids didn’t even need to leave! It was so special!
