Guestbook comments from the owner

an email from our guest: My wife and I enjoyed our stay at the house, it was spacious, clean and nicely decorated. Excellent knife set and good pans for cooking. I'm a cook so I really enjoyed the Viking professional series appliances, surprised to see a $4000 oven in a rent house, but you can see all the custom features in this home. Hugh tub, detailed quality vanities and cabinets. It's a nice place to relax Thank you Robert

Comfortable Getaway

  • 5 of 5
My family stayed for three weeks here and it was very comfortable and quiet. Being able to watch deer from the porch with my daughter was nice and being just a short walk to the lake allowed us to fish and swim with ease. Michelle was a joy to talk to and was very accommodating.

Cape Royale's "Lightwell Cottage"

Cape Royale's "Lightwell Cottage"
  • 5 of 5
My family recently spent three nights at Cape Royale's "Lightwell Cottage". For the most part, the description of the location, layout, and amenities were accurate. The swimming pool is actually a community pool and not a private pool. And, we were advised that an application to access the pool must be approved by the POA, which could take up to 4-6 weeks.
The property was lovely and welcoming. It was very clean, well-maintained and pet friendly. The owners added a special touch by leaving a basket of snacks on our date of arrival.
There are limited activities, attractions and accommodations in this area except bird and deer watching, so we had to get creative when it came to entertaining our 'tweens'.
The owner was responsive, courteous and a real pleasure to work with. This property is ideal for families with young children, a girls getaway, or couples looking for a quiet, romantic getaway. Two thumbs up on this property!

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5
This home is very comfortable, clean, and neat, and has all the conveniences of home. It's also very spacious. We were very pleased, and because the place had all the comforts and conveniences of our own home, we were able to focus our time and attention on the rest, relaxation, and family reunion we were there for. Would highly reccomend it and hope to visit again myself some day.

Just what we needed

  • 5 of 5
We worked a lot of hours and really appreciated this brand new home to relax in and call home, our families were welcome while we worked. There were herds of deer, lots of birds, and what an amazing home, we were surprised they would even rent this place, the kitchen is pretty high-end.

Owner's Response: Glad to be of service, it is an amazing custom home isn't it.
The floor plan is nice, every bedroom is private from the others,
and it is so open, it seems much bigger than it is.
Thank you for selecting us and staying at our home.
