About the Owner
Guestbook comments from the owner
We had soo much fun at Abby’s Lake House! We went fishing, canoeing, swimming and so much more. My brother and my mom caught tons of fish. I didn’t fish all that much so I caught zero fish. My dad tipped in the canoe twice. We made a fire and roasted marshmallows 3 times. No matter what we were doing at Abby’s Lake House, we were always having fun! Bye! - Philadelphia, PA

Abby's Lake HouseAbby's Lake House
We made our reservations with Lori and Clay and arrived on May 16, 2011. We were very surprised about how clean and well kept the house was. There was everything imaginable there in the way of household items. We brought some of our own things such as paper towels and kitchen things but never needed them. The Martin's absolutely thought of everything including firewood. When we ran out of firewood we called the Martin's and they brought more firewood over very promptly. The beds were comfortable and the TV's and DVD were also a nice touch. The garage had fishing equipment and things for going out on the lake. I recommend this house for anyone that wants to get away to relax.
Memorable Memorial Day Weekend...
Just as advertised
She met us as promised at check-in and went over all the stuff we needed to know. She was very friendly and knowledgable about the area.
The house was perfect for my family of five (Mom, Dad and three young boys). The kitchen is well stocked, lots of workspace, it felt like home. The boys enjoyed playing the Play Station upstairs while we cooked. At night we all played board games which were at the house and then Mom and I watched a movie on the large flat-screen with surround sound (also has an I-Pod docking station which was great). Wi-Fi worked as advertsied.
Beds were good, sheets and linens were clean, lots of clean towels. All great.
The house is on a small country road so you will hear the louder cars as they pass in front of the house. However the volume of cars was something like four an hour, so you are not talking about a lot of traffic.
All-in-All, we loved Abby's Lakehouse and felt that it was exactly as advertised.
Oh, almost forgot, the ski area at Elk is only a 10-12 minute drive. We'll be back for sure!
