Exceeded Expectations On Every Trip!

  • 5 of 5
The Second trip to the Ritz' was amazing. We held a large gathering for a Christmas party (approx. 40 adults and children) the setting was perfect! Everyone was amazed at the house and the many things for us all to do while there. During the summer we had stayed at the house for a week or so and had an enjoyable experience. Steve (the Owner) was heavily involved in both stays and helped contribute to the overall success and enjoyment of both stays. Nothing that you can put on a website will provide the credit due to such an amazing house. If you are impressed by the pictures and write up, do yourself a favor and see it in person! You will not be disappointed! We will be in touch for another stay soon Steve! Appreciate you.

Best Place on the Lake

  • 5 of 5
The Ritz.....a perfect name for a fabulous property. We travel yearly with 4 other families to this place of paradise. Approximately 22 people, ages 15-55, immensely enjoy all this place has to offer. The house is located on a main channel of the lake directly across from the marina, making it convenient to launch a boat. The house is immaculate with custom features throughout the house. It has 2 living/family rooms with two full size kitches, two master suites, and four bedrooms in the main house. The garage has a huge playroom above it with a full bath, making it an entirely separate living space for anyone who wants peace. The home offers plenty of entertainment. We enjoy sitting on the dock deck, which is large enough to accommodate our large group (with plenty of furniture), and floating in the water. The teenage boys enjoy a daily heated basketball game on the basketball court. Rain? No worries. The 3 car garage offers shuffleboard and ping pong, and the playroom has billiards, video games, juke box, and a bar. The main house has satellite tv with a gazillion channels, and the baby Grand player piano is as entertaining as a live piano player. The screened in porch and balcony with rockers provide an excellent view of the beautiful lake, especially at sunset. This place is a slice of heaven on earth!! The owner has been very gracious and hospitable; he is readily available with any questions we have concerning his belongings. I would highly recommend this place for most anyone!!

Perfect Thanksgiving week!!

  • 5 of 5
My family rented "the Ritz" for a long Thanksgiving weekend..........our group included 15 people, ages 2-72, from Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Tennessee, and Alabama!! We had the most wonderful time at this beautiful house! The "kids" (all of us, actually), spent lots of time in the gameroom, on the basketball court, around the fireplace (watching football), at the outdoor fireplace, and on the back deck watching people play horseshoes or beanbag toss!! There was never a dull moment, AND you could always escape to a quiet place to be alone from time to time!! The two kitchens came in very handy when we prepared Thanksgiving dinner! The downstairs bedroom is a wonderful place to escape the hustle and bustle of a full house!! The sunsets are more beautiful than any we've ever seen!! Glorious!! The two laundry rooms were very convenient, and we especially enjoyed hiding all of our ice chests and crates in the downstairs laundry room just around the corner from the kitchen! Owner Steve met us when we arrived and gave us the grand tour; the fireplace was roaring, and the player piano was softly playing! This house has everything you need to have a perfect vacation.....dishes, pots and pans, towels, linens, etc. I don't know if we ever saw all of the closets filled with linens, towels, and mats for sleeping extra people!! Thank you so much for a perfect place for family to gather for Thanksgiving!!

God is GOOD!

  • 5 of 5
My family rented this spectacular home for a week in June 2010. We were the first renters of this home so I was a little worried. First I have to say that the Sheffield's (the owners) are very gracious. They went out of their way to insure that we had everythng we needed and more. Our week was perfect. There were 6 adults and 6 children staying for the week. We were all very comfortable. The house is very clean and very well cared for. It is beautifuly built, beautifuly decorated and I might add, not a thing left out. The game room above the garage was in constant use by the teenagers in the evening. They could be as loud as they wanted and kept none of us old folk awake. The downstairs kitchen came in very handy for evening barbeques on the patio with spectacular views of the lake. We lived on the boat dock! The second story is partially covered and was great for those of us that are NOT sun worshipers. The kids loved jumping off the top deck on the dock. The owners gave us one boat slip for our ski boat and there was plenty of room to safely tie up our fishing boat to the dock as well. This house is on big water and the views are incredible. I enjoyed my morning cup of coffee on the dock (around 5am) while my husband dropped his line in the water. The home has a storm shelter too which gave us peace of mind. There is plenty of parking for guests and a seperate parking area for the boat trailers. The grounds are professionally landscaped and manicured. There were bikes available for biking around the beautiful gated neighborhood. It was a strange story that lead us to the RITZ and the Sheffield's. God knew exactly what my family needed last summer and guided us to a little slice of heaven. It was worth every penny, I only wish I could go back every year. You will enjoy staying at this incredible home and if you are, I am jealous!
