New inside and Out! Beautiful Lake Front Home

Beautiful lakefront property, not ideal for small children

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at this property for two days in June -- the location is beautiful, and Karl and Sharlene were helpful and accommodating hosts. For us, the way the home is configured with two bedrooms on the upper floor, but the sole bathroom on the lower floor, was difficult. This would likely not be the case for others, but with small kids it did make a difference. Also, the door to the kids bedroom was difficult and noisy to close, so we couldn't close it once they were asleep. The small beach outside was lovely for the kids, though.

What a Pleasant Surprise!

  • 5 of 5

We rented the house in April for a week and our experience couldn't be better. The location was perfect and the property was well maintained. My 10-year old daughter and her best friend enjoyed the dock and the lake every single day while my 18-year old daughter, my wife and I spent a lot of time together at the porch with conversation over coffee watching the sunrise in the mornings and full moon reflecting over the lake at nights. We caught a lot of sun fish and pickerel right from the dock and kids were so excited to set them free after we took couple pictures with them. Karl was also pleasure to deal with. We loved our stay in this property and will definitely try to come back as soon as our schedules allow.

Lovely lake house

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this charming lake house. It was the perfect size for just the two of us, with a great view of the lake and a well-appointed kitchen with all the pots, pans and other bits you'll need to cook. We found the property very clean and well-maintained on arrival. It was early in the season and the activity on the lake was quite subdued, which we were thankful for. I did some fishing from the supplied canoe and caught bass and pickerel quite nearby.

All in all, it was a great experience and we would not hesitate to return!
