My old home growing up as a kid.

  • 5 of 5

This was my home as a kid, my parents bought it in 1959 when I was 2 yrs old and kept it in the family until Mark bought it about 8 years ago. We rented as a family for boat weekend a few years ago and had all the family there. I live 4 miles away and stop by from time to time what new things have been added. Mark takes pride in this home and has added to the second floor bedrooms, built a new great master bath and second floor deck. This home has everything you need for a great family week vacation. Top of the line everything. You will not find a nicer home on the lake for your get away. Just less than a mile to a great mall and lots of food places. If you are lucky enough to rent this home you will never forget the fun times.

Wonderful Experience

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful house right on the beach. The house had all amenities you could think of. Enough dishes and cooking items so meals out aren't needed. Found everything we needed. Had 20 for dinner one night. Plenty of room.

Owner is easy to work with. Very responsive and very interested in pleasing the renters.

Beautiful location.
