Perfect, perfect place to make family memories!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Tonia made making the reservation a breeze! She was very responsive to emails and answered each and every question I had quickly! The home when we walked in was so so welcoming and the home was super clean and organized. It was everything and more then what was advertised!

The outside area was absolutely perfect for our large group! Plenty of wonderful lawn space to enjoy provided lawn games. Many many chairs available for us to enjoy the firepit... And, a nice deck near the river and a concrete walkway along the water allowed us to fish and get close to the water and sunsets!

The kitchen is modern and any and everything you need to prepare and eat family meals was available! Big screen TVs to watch the disappointing IU game and furniture that was very very comfortable!

We so enjoyed our whole family gathering- the young and old- for a weekend at this fabulous home! Everywhere on the property, inside and out, we were able to enjoy one another and make memories to last a lifetime. We thank Tonia for making this possible and making it so easy for us to gather.

Until another time, thanks so much for opening and sharing your beautiful home- truly a memory maker!

Spacious and felt very homey

  • 5 of 5

We had our family Christmas here. There was a ton of space for everyone. There was even a tiny little Christmas tree waiting in us.

We enjoyed our stay here very much. We will definitely rent again, when we are in town visiting family.

The owners were diligent in answering our questions and addressing our needs. Worth every cent we spent.

Lake Shafer Visit

  • 4 of 5

The house was clean and accommodated out needs very well. The outside facilities (decks, fire pit, etc) added to out enjoyment. Should we seek to rent again, we would choose to do so during the summer when local boat rentals are available and we could better enjoy the river and lake. Some suggestions: 1) the 4:00 pm access time Friday and 10:00 am departure time limited our chance to enjoy the weekend, 2) we were disappointed that certain amenities (dishwasher soap, laundry soap) weren't provided by the owner. These seem minor items, but these little touches make the visit more accommodating. Other than these items, we had a great weekend. Thanks.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. I am sorry you did not receive extended check out times. Usually, with off season bookings, I extend the check in and out times to accommodate our guests' needs. Thank you for bringing this to my attention. This was a lack of communication on my part. In the future I will emphasize the off season check in/out times more clearly.

This home exceeded all of my expectations!!! We had 15 ladies there this weekend for my sisters bachelorette weekend. If was so relaxing and quiet on the river and we had such a great time! The home is beautiful and most importantly CLEAN. The owners we super helpful and responsive in the time leading up to our stay making sure everything was ready and even made sure there was firewood there for us for the weekend. I will definitely be using this house in the future for vacations!!
