Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
We rented "Dreaming a View" for a family vacation but because of a family wedding and birth of a new granddaughter not all our immediate family could come. The rest of us had a wonderful time though! Also our extended family was able to come for a day and all commented how much fun they had and what a great place it was. The pictures don't do it justice. Linda and Phil were very welcoming and helpful. You basically only need to bring your food and clothes, everything else is supplied. We had a relaxing time sitting by the water, fishing and kayaking. Enjoyed hanging out by fire pit at night. Even got up early to see the sunrise out our bedroom window. We visited the wineries one day, went to the Waterloo outlets shopping but mostly just hung out and relaxed at the house. Had such a great time!! Already reserved it for next year and hoping all our family can make it.

Wonderful Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
We have been vacationing renting housed for few years but never felt so well taken care of by the owners as at this property. The house is absolutely beautiful. The pictures don't do it justice. Very clean, comfortable, spacious and very well supplied. The property is close enough to do shopping on your own in Geneva, about 20 min drive, and there is plenty of room to put things away. It was serene, calm and very relaxing. We loved the grill (cheeseburgers for the first dinner is a must), the kitchen and the soooo comfortable living room. We spent every night we could outside by the fire, the view of the lake in the evening during the sunset is just breathtaking. The way all of our questions were answered and attended to by Linda and Phil made us feel very important and put us at ease. We knew we could count on them for anything to make our vacation time unforgettable. Thank you for all you did for us and we will see next year.

Awesome

  • 5 of 5
Spent last weekend at Dreaming a View with friends and family. The property is nothing short of awesome. We found the property to be in perfect condition very clean no complaints whatsoever. We spent the weekend touring the wineries and just relaxing this is the perfect getaway to just kick back and enjoy each other in the property itself The owners Phill and Linda are more like friends than landlords very nice people to deal with and they went to great lengths to make sure we are well taken care of and happy with Our stay at their home on the lake. This was our second year in a row to stay at dreaming a view. We highly recommend a visit to the property and we plan to return next year.

bachelorette/bachelor getaway weekend

  • 5 of 5
The home was more way more then we expected it to be. The picture didn't do it justice. The views is breath taking. The owners were a pleasure to deal with and more then welcoming. We usually come up to the wineries at least once a year. This was the first time we rented a house and will definitely rent it again.

Surprise Engagement Weekend

  • 5 of 5
I reviewed several homes in the area before selecting this one. The combination of amenities and price was very attractive but what sold me was how pleasant the owners were to work with. The pictures are spot on, no surprises. The house was beautiful and comfortably slept all nine of my friends and family. They are genuine and exceptionally accommodating in helping me plan my engagement proposal. I had asked the owners if my soon to be finance's parents could pickup the keys on my behalf Friday night while my girlfriend and I camped in the rain no less on Friday night. All of my friends and family members arrived Friday throughout the day cozy and dry enjoying the wonderful home. The next day I proposed at one of the winery's and all of our friends and family showed up to surprise her, don't worry she said yes. It was amazing!!! We all went back to the house where we celebrated. Between cooking kebobs on the grill, roasted chicken in the oven, and preparing salad/sides on the gorgeous island there was plenty of cooking space. The table sat all of us very comfortably. After dinner we all went out to the lakefront and enjoyed the fire-pit roasting marshmallows and listening to the water roll inland. The next morning we made breakfast, cleaned up, and went home. My now finance was so shocked and surprised with the house, she said she loved how clean and warm the house felt as soon as you entered. A great place to spend with family and friends. Everyone loved the house enjoying the sleeping arrangements, the wifi, and of course the lakeside view!
