Beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

This house shows well in pictures, but is even more impressive in person. We happened to stay at this property when the temps dipped well below zero. That said, we ended up spending more time indoors than initially planned and were able to fully enjoy all this home has to offer. There was plenty of room for two families and we all especially enjoyed the sleep number beds in each room. The sauna and game room were really fun. We spent a good amount of time in the kitchen as well and it was stocked with everything you would need for cooking a nice meal. This is a beautifully appointed home and just a short walk from the lake or Giants Ridge. The owners were also very responsive and easy to work with. A special thank you to the cleaning team. They met us at the house early to drop off a few items and when we were finally ready to check in the house was absolutely spotless. We hope to be back sometime soon!

Incredible Home

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in VRBO houses all over the US and Europe and this is by far the nicest home we have ever stayed in! It is decorated impeccably, is super spacious, and has every amenity you could ask for. We spent a long week-end there with my husband's parents and our adult children and played the three area golf courses. We cooked a gourmet breakfast every morning and there wasn't an item missing from the kitchen. It was absolutely perfect for our needs.

CAUTION: Please ensure in writing that all toilets are working. During our December 27-30, 2016 vacation stay, the two basement toilets were problematic. A plumber was called after the first night, but the fix did not persist during our stay. The two basement toilets were not functioning when we left. The owner acknowledged the plumbing issue and that we did not cause or exasperate the problem.
