Lakefront home with private dock, central AC, firepit, and yard- one dog OK
Enjoy life on the water at this fantastic lakefront home, where great things come in small packages. A few grassy strides from the front door will have you at the private dock where you can launch your boat via the ramp. If you prefer to stay on shore, recline on the lounge chairs for sunbathing lakeside. The vast yard makes a perfect play area for younger guests, and there's a cornhole court for even more fun. Be sure to keep an eye out for any visiting wildlife!
The petite, two-story house is decorated in a rustic-chic style with gorgeous wood floors and light, wood-paneled walls. Prepare meals in the beautiful modern kitchen equipped with a full suite of stainless steel appliances. There's a breakfast bar with seating for two, or you can dine alfresco at the picnic table next to the lake.
Pull up a chair on the covered front porch to watch the phenomenal sunsets and then gather around the firepit with good drinks and better company.

The pictures are great but the place is even better… Enjoyed they stay but it can use lights in the yard to get to the front door… Water had a foul egg smelled when running didn’t use to cook food with…. Small tv in bed room with no remote to use it… Thank god we had other places to sleep… Water bug crawled on me while sleep so this problem needs to be handle bc I seen it in another review but I was like it mite be ok tho… Also water is low in toilet to flush…
Mattie, we thank you for your review, and we are happy you enjoyed your stay. We want to provide you with the best vacation you can have, and we apologize for the issues you encountered. We will follow up with the appropriate parties to check and address the water's foul egg smell, the missing television remote, low water toilet, and we will ensure that pest control treatments are completed to prevent any further concerns. We also highly appreciate our guests' preference for a room to improve, so we informed our property manager about your comment on the lights in the yard for consideration. We will continually work with our local staff and homeowner to improve the home, and we hope to host you again in the future.

I really want to give this property more stars, but improvements are needed.
Let’s start with the positives. Charming tiny home with beautiful property. Plenty of space for two +, and a small dog. Outdoor space with dock and firepit where a bonus. Kayaks and paddle board were on prem, which would have been fun to use during summer. Interior of the tiny home was surprising spacious, with vaulted ceilings in the primary bedroom and living room areas. Good size kitchen with full appliances, stove, microwave, frig, dishwasher and washer/dryer. Kitchen was adequately stocked with the usuals, but missing a toaster. I believe this home could accommodate up to 8. There was a loft area with two inflatable beds. This area has very low ceilings and would require adults to crawl on their knees to access the beds. Stairs to loft were vertical so could be difficult to climb for some. Interior was comfy.
And the NEGATIVES…
No exterior lighting. We arrived after dark so walking to the porch and front door was difficult. The small solar lights on the edge of the flowerbed were useless. There was no lighting on the porch to see the front door. Without our flashlights we would have had difficulty entering the code on the keypad to enter the home.
Home could have been cleaner. Kitchen counters felt grimy. Dead cockroaches in the bedroom and bathroom were not surprising, but could have been avoided.
Large stain on the bedspread simply should not have been there. That’s really inexcusable!
Lastly, the worst item on this list was the smell of the water. That Sulfur smell you get with Well water. The smell from the water was so intense we opted not to take showers the second day since the smell was beyond tolerable. We tried running the water for a while hoping it would flush out but that never happened. The smell was worse with the hot water. The owners should look into installing a chlorine filtration system for their Well.
And one final note... if staying here during the Fall be aware that this home has a metal roof and when the Acorns fall from the trees and hit the roof a VERY LOUD bang occurs. We encountered this at 2:30 am and were abruptly awoken. It sounded like baseballs hitting the building which was beyond startling. Just something to note and to be prepared for when staying here during this time of year.
We're sorry there were so many aspects to your stay you did not enjoy. This home matches the 3D walkthrough very well and is located on wonderfully private land. There is all new bedding, furniture, and decor. Our property manager personally inspected this home prior to your arrival to ensure it was sanitized and immaculate. Please note the water in many homes in the area have the same odor due to the water source. Hopefully we can help you find a home that better suits what you're looking for in the future. Thanks, Diana!

This home was so cozy & comfortable. The lake views and access to kayaks was amazing. We had a wedding locally & this was one of the best trips we’ve had. Thank you

We were ready for a slowed down relaxing weekend. My grandsons enjoyed the loft space as their own private room (teens). The view was awesome for coffee breaks and fishing. We’re looking forward to reserving for a week next year.

Beautiful, quaint tiny home on a quiet peninsula. Sunsets from the dock were amazing.
Ariana J.Sep 2022
The house was beautiful. It was so relaxing sitting in the hammock listening the water hit the wall. There were kayaks and life jackets, also a fire pit with plenty of already chopped wood for our use, when I had questions I just messaged the property and they got back to me immediately. Literally the only thing that I could “complain” about would be the water bugs, there’s tons of those but other than that, it was such an amazing stay and I would do it again.
