    I rented this property to be able to spend time with our daughters family. This place did not disappoint! It was roomy enough for 4 adults and 2 kids.. The view was awesome too. The grandkids fished from the dock and caught several small fish. We made great memories here!

    The house is not updated but comfortable. The location is fantastic and we spent most of our time on the deck outside. We ate every meal on outdoor dining table and watched the beautiful scenery. Kitchen has everything you need. If you are not expecting 5 star amenities then this is a good choice.

    If you are in search of an amazing outdoor space, this is for you! We spent the majority of our time on the upper deck. We've rented from other hosts in the area that offer Kayaks or canoes, this one doesn't, which would be my only hesitation on renting here again, other than that, we had a perfect time! The house and deck were clean, they even had a crumb-cake for us upon arrival. The host is very responsive and kind!

    We were greeted with great hospitality, coffee cake and cookies! Steve and Christie even offered to show us around the area and lake. We were the first renters and experienced the newness of everything! The beds were very comfortable and the views were amazing! Can't wait to come back! Thanks again for everything!
