5/5 Excellent

Perfect retreat to celebrate our daughter's wedding week

We had a wonderful week. The home is beautiful and very comfortable. The owner was easy to work with and attentive.

5/5 Excellent

Relaxing atmosphere

We had a great time at this property. Owners were prompt to answer questions when the need arose.Had 12 people and still felt like we had plenty of room still. The lake is beautiful at sunset and I wish we had more time to explore the outdoors. Basketball, billiards, ping pong and kayaks, there was no shortage of things to do. Lots of grocery stores and things to do nearby. Overall we made many memories this week we spent here .

5/5 Excellent
