Perfect for a large family gathering - Mom's 90th

  • 5 of 5

We rented the Neptune and Hideaway for a gathering of 22 adults and 1 child for our Mother/Grandmother/Great-grandmother's 90th birthday. The older generations stayed at the Neptune and the grandkids (cousins and spouses) stayed at the Hideaway. The two homes were just right for the size of our group, although the Hideaway was a little tight with 11 people. The Neptune was perfect for gathering all of us for dinners and birthday celebrations. There were lots of different areas to converse and play, plenty of kitchen space, and a large living room where we could all congregate. We enjoyed hanging out on the deck, sunroom, and lakeshore/dock where we could fish. Steve gave us use of the pontoon boat for one day and we spent the whole day taking different groups down the lake. It was a perfect weekend, and most important of all, Mom and Dad loved it!

Neptune-not enough characters to decry bad PR at West Panorama Golf

  • 5 of 5

Overall, great piece of property, magazines left there imply architectural competence. Only thing I might add though, is that the actual toilet facility in the master bedroom left a lot to be desired, the throne was encased in a very small "closet' (I know-water closet) which had no socially redeeming value---even a simple wall hanging would have at least made it tolerable--that's why they only get a 4.99 rating!

Beautiful home

Family vacation with 4 different families (2 with children) and we had plenty of space. Private. We were there during Panorama Days and also found the small town of Panora charming.

Wonderful home - highly recommend

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we've stayed at Neptune and couldn't have been better. The first stay was 5 years ago and the home is still in great shape, very well kept. We had a girls weekend for 13 women and it's the perfect venue with 2 great gathering spaces, the kitchen is perfect for all cooking together, and plenty of sleeping rooms and bathrooms. There is a huge bar and a walk out to the covered patio. The property is so beautiful in the fall with the leaves changing. We enjoyed the fire pit and deck space as well. This house is so well equipped with everything we needed. The owner and prop managers are great, very responsive and helpful. I highly recommend this home for a multi-family gathering or for a bunch of friends to have a great stay together!!
