Wonderful experience

  • 4 of 5

The property was wonderful and made us feel right at home. We live on lake Norman in NC so to find something so great and comfortable so far from home was really great. We have stayed in different properties through VRBO the last few years and this house and the communication from the owner was our best experience yet. Saying that we haven’t had a bad one but this property went above and beyond all others.

Had a very bad experience with a rental on the lake in 2015 and considered never coming back. Our two week rental experience with this property turned that around for us. This is a great property and it lived up to all the billings. The owners are great and very concerned that every thing be perfect. I highly recommend.

awesome rental

  • 5 of 5

This is one of the best places that I have stayed at on Indian Lake. The property was clean and well maintained and the owners were there to check on us and available if needed- great email/phone response. I loved the open first floor plan which was very comfortable . The first floor walk in shower plus laundry room was an added bonus- the view from the 2 bedrooms upstairs were fabulous. This house was centrally located to many shops, marinas and restaurants. I would definitely recommend this house to family and friends. We hope to return again. Thanks

100% Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This is a keeper! While the pictures on this sight are great they don't do justice to the feeling you get as you walk in the door. A one of a kind masterpiece!

The property was immaculate and had everything imaginable for a wonderful stay.

We rented the boat also and spent lots of time on the lake exploring all the coves and channels (You have to check out "The Tilton Hilton").

The owners were more than helpful and made sure everything was perfect.

This turned out to be one of the best vacations ever and we will return!

Best lake weekend of my life!

  • 5 of 5

This house is INCREDIBLE! Myself and a few of my Indianapolis Colts Cheerleader teammates found the home online and decided to make the short trip over to Ohio for a relaxing weekend. WHAT A WEEKEND!!!!! The location is gorgeous and it truly is the best view on the entire lake. The house is SO clean and we kept making comments to each other on how brand new everything looked. It's also quite big! We felt like we had plenty of room to spare. The owners were so sweet and made sure we had everything we needed. Most people would probably have a hard time picturing 4 cheerleaders sitting on a doc fishing...but this was one of our favorite parts. We caught at least 10 catfish and a couple bluegill. The kitchen was fully stocked with everything we could have needed. We even grilled out and had a little fire in the pit. We also rented the pontoon which was brand new and several hundred dollars less compared to the local rental boat company.

WE WILL DEFINITELY BE VISITING THE LAKE AGAIN....and this perfect cottage is the ONLY place we will stay.

Thank you Schmucker Rentals!

Amazing Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd time renting the Waterbury. The owners are so accommodating and sweet! The house is amazing. It has everything you need. It is clean, spacious, and in a great location. There is nothing like waking up to the beautiful views of the lake from our bedroom and my son loved his view of Dunn's Pond. Both bedrooms also have balconies.

We rented the new pontoon boat and it was a blast! I loved how we could access bars, restaurants, and the beach area with the pontoon boat. We spent hours on the boat. We had family & friends come up to go boating, swimming, and tubing. My father-in-law loved fishing from the boat or straight from the dock.

A few guests spent the night on the pullout couches. I also like knowing there is another guest house right behind this house if we decide to vacation with more people.

We also took advantage of grilling out and having bonfires...smores..yum! This place is awesome for a quiet getaway for a couple, a family and visitors, and it would be a great girls' or guys' getaway. The only drawback is we had to leave, but we will return!
