House, 8 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 18 Sleeps
This unique home is actually a duplex with two identical units.
Perfect for family gatherings, reunions, and weddings. Each side has
four bedrooms, full kitchen, full bathroom, two-story family room, dining room, deck furniture, and grill.
The home sits on an acre of land right on the water with 339 feet of
lakefront. Plenty of room for volleyball, horseshoes, or just
relaxing on the beach. It is quiet and peaceful with a creek running
down one side of the property. Bring your own boat and tie it up to
the dock, or you can rent one from the marina nearby.

Beautiful location, but not a good value
Of all the places we have rented with extended family over the last decade, this was the strangest setup and probably the worst rental we have had.
It has to do with the house itself - a little worse for the wear, could use updating. Numerous minor issues that we can't detail due to lack of space for the review (but do want to mention the grill was a little skeevy. We used disposable grill pans for our grilling, not wanting food to touch the grill grates).
The place is a duplex connected by a common utility room. Oddly enough, there is a dishwasher only in the "North" kitchen. So we were constantly moving dishes back and forth. Two kitchens did make cooking meals for a large group easier.
Only 1 bathroom for each unit, which was tough sometimes.
No A/C and insufficient number of fans for all the bedrooms to compensate.
Inaccuries with the listing - there is no room with bunk beds, although there are plenty of beds (very comfortable and quality linens provided). The living room pictured does not exist.
NO TV service - there are 2 large flat screen TVs, but no TV service. Normally wouldn't be an issue (even if falsely advertised) but we were visiting during the first week of the Rio Olympics so that was extremely disappointing. If the internet wasn't so SLOW (satellite), lack of TV service would have been ok because we could have streamed on our devices. Owner did upgrade the satellite service for us for the week, but amount of high-speed data was limited and we blew through it pretty quickly.
The house is on well water (impacts the dishwasher - filmy glasses and dishes). There was a problem with the well and one night it went dry. We worked with the owner over the phone to try to address the problem by priming the pump, but that didn't do it (because as it turned out the well was dry). He was unable to get a plumber that night so we went a night without water (no showers, had to flush toilets with lake water that we hauled up to the house). Later in the week, the pump was sounding funny again - we took our own proactive action by priming the pump and averted another problem!
The property itself is fantastic, with great lakefront and just about a 180 degree view of the water. The yard is very large and great for lawn games. The dock is spacious.
The owner was nice and felt bad about the problems. But for what we paid for the rental, the issues we had to deal with aren't acceptable. We did ask for and got a small refund for our trouble.

Best week of Summer 2011. The weather was perfect and this rental just added to one of the most enjoyable weeks our family has ever had on vacation. Plenty of room inside and out. The accommodations were great for a large group. The property has to be one of the best on the water, just walk right in and cool off, or float around(don't forget to bring plenty of tubes). Large yard for any kind of lawn games. Beautiful large deck for enjoying dinner at sunset. Very close to wineries, which is a great way to spend a rainy afternoon. Plenty of parking space for all.
