All Summer Long

  • 5 of 5

Where do I start? My family and I just completed our second season enjoying this property. We rented four times over the summer. It feels like home. It is exactly what I would want in my own lake place. Everything from the home, the neighbors, the cove, and the location on the lake are just perfect. The cove water is calm for swimming around the dock. There is a larger cove and the main channel that provide space and calm water for water sports. Every time we arrive to a sparkling clean home. The cleaning service that is available is well worth it, so you enjoy that last day at the home.

Another wonderful summer and the property owner could not be easier to do business with! LOVE THIS PLACE!!

Great cove...great way to get away!

  • 4 of 5

The house is 100% what it needs to be for a lake house's not luxuriously decorated, etc, but it's the lake--this house is just what it says it is "a lake house"---perfect for what we wanted....a nice big deck looking out over a wonderfully calm cove. Great for swimming and fishing off the dock and close enough to the channel to get out and use our wave runners without disturbing the cove (and to make a run to the marina for ice). Plenty of room inside for the 4 adults and 4 children who were there on our trip. Friendly neighbors. In general, a great place to unplug and enjoy the sun and the water!

This home is completely as advertised in every way! Everything you need is there. Very quiet, calm cove. We had wonderful family getaway, and would recommend this home to anyone, looking to get away from it all. We'll be back!

One of the best things about this was the quiet. I went to be away from it all and was not disappointed. No cell signal, no wifi, just enough direct tv channels to know if weather was going to be an issue. The place is so comfortable you will feel like you are at home. Everything you need is there. Bring food, charcoal and the mindset to enjoy a quiet, calm part of the lake. We even caught a 4.5 lb bass in the cove. Great neighbors. The ramp and driveway is steep, though not the steepest I have seen. Well maintained. It's easily managed if you just take it slow and have a spotter. We swam by the dock every day. Water was a bit cool, but it had rained a lot prior to us coming. The best part is that there is no traffic in the cove, so was nice and easy.

Highly recommended for fisherman, weekend getaways when you actually want to be in the water, by boat, or by personal float.

The only reason that this is not a five star rating, is because I am impossible to please. Just ask my wife. :)

Thanks again!

Owner's Response: This review reflects why we call our home "The way the Lake used to be". No traffic jams, no boat traffic, very quiet and relaxing. Come on down and "unplug", it is more relaxing than you can imagine.

Activity and Interests

Boating, all water sports, great fishing, swimming. This is a deep, large cove, located towards the end where it's always quiet. If you want shopping, clubs, expensive food....get back in your boat or car for about 30-45 minutes. This is not the Lake's 'hot spot', which is why most of us old 'Lakers' like it!!
