Great house on the lake!!!

  • 5 of 5

This house has it all. Great location for fishing, boat lifts for two boats, and a nice dock to fish from also. We had a fish fry and forgot the cooking oil but no prob when staying here. We looked in the cabinet and there some was.. they even had charcoal and lighter fluid for the grill. The owners have really put some thought into this property. Thanks for letting us stay!!

Very nice house!!! Great Fishing!!

  • 5 of 5

This is a really nice house that is very clean and well kept. The bedrooms have very comfortable beds. The bathrooms have double sinks with several towels and washcloths.The kitchen is fully furnished with pots, pans, bake ware, utensils...and there is a grill outside. The boat house with electric lift and doors were great. We caught so many fish each time we went out. We pulled in each night and had extension cords and outlets right there to charge up our batteries. Thank you Linda and Bob for sharing your house. We had a wonderful vacation!

The perfect vacation

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed a peaceful and relaxing vacation. We stayed for 2 weeks and loved every day of it. Caught fish, went shopping, ate out and enjoyed the screened in porch when we ate in.

In a word - PERFECTION!

  • 5 of 5

The house was exactly as shown in the pictures except for the brand new flat screen TV and new furniture arrangement in the living area! The kitchen was a dream (and I cooked a lot!). Lots of spices, and a decent selection of pots and pans, bake ware and utensils! All three bedrooms were beautiful and had very comfortable mattresses. Both bathrooms were great with nice thick towels and washcloths plus a nice selection of lotions, shampoos and conditioners, if needed! Everything in the house is pristine! And I haven't even touched on the most important thing (at least according to my husband!).....the boat house! It made his and our son's week of fishing so much easier without having to put the tarp on the boat every night. He could just pull it into the boat house, raise it up a little with the lift, plug in the batteries to charge and lock it up for the night! The driveway to the house is slightly steep but we had no problems. Had we known, we probably would have put the boat in the water before coming to the house (the boat ramp entrance is like 1/2 mile from the house, if that!) but hubby is very good at backing a boat so no worries! (I wouldn't try it with anything much bigger than our small Stratos bass boat though!) The owners were great to work with and were extremely helpful and generous! Oh and lest I forget.....the fishing was AWESOME according to the guys! I just enjoyed the house the whole week and shopping a couple of days!

WOW! That's the word that comes to mind when thinking about our vacation here. You are taken care of from the very first inquiry until you get home. This couple have a beautiful place and it's very well maintained. You will not be disappointed until you have to leave. I highly recommend this rental for anyone visiting this area.
