    We stayed here for our training at the Gomaco University which was about 20 miles away. This place was perfect for us. Very clean. Spacious. Lots of games and TVs inside. View of the Lake was awesome. Donna was a great host. I’d we go next year we are definitely staying here again.

    Perfect location!

    We stayed at this beautiful lakehouse in mid August 2019. To start off, the owners of this home spared no expense when they built this home! What an absolutely beautiful lakehouse! The beds were very comfortable and there was so much room for all of us to spread out. The house was very clean too! Our little ones had a blast on a few rainy days playing with the toys in the basement. We utilized the bikes on the local trail as well as taking a ride around the lake.

    The town itself is small, but has a huge playground for kids as well as a splash pad and the local campground right in town has a beach and mini golf. One downside is that water clarity of the lake is not great as the lake is not very deep, but we were still very much able to enjoy tubing and going out in the lake and anchoring and swimming off our boat.

    The owner was quick to respond and did whatever she could when we experienced issues with the main frig as well! She got someone over as soon as she could to get it fixed.

    Overall, my family and I thoroughly enjoyed this beautiful lakehouse! We couldn't believe we didn't have to leave Iowa to get a house and setting this nice! Thank you for sharing your lakehouse with us!!

    Excellent accommodations!!

    This home was just as amazing as the pictures showed. Plenty of room for all of our family, we had 6 adults and 2 children, there would even be more room for other guests with the 2nd level living room and game room in the basement. We cooked in the beautiful kitchen and used the grill for almost every meal and found the kitchen to be very well equipped with what we needed. The bedrooms were really comfortable and separated from each other which was very nice, 3 bathrooms made it easy for showers/ baths after a day at the lake. The lake was not only picturesque but sparkling clean, we swam, kayaked, and jumped off the dock. The location of this property is in a really private and quiet area on the lake, we were able to swim around the dock and not worry about much boat traffic. The town of Lake View itself we were also pleasently surprised by, a quaint and cute little town that you can tell takes pride in their lake, there was a nice promenade around the lake, mini golf, a beach with concessions, even a park and splashpad within walking distance. We can't wait to come back to this property!

    Our group was 4 couples. We had such a nice time. The weather was great so we spent all of our time outside. We took our own breakfast food and grilled one evening but otherwise ate at local restaurants. The house was beautiful with lots of room to give us all our space. It had 3 bedrooms and 2 hide-a-beds so one couple had to use the hide-a-bed. If you will need to use this I would recommend you take extra padding to put on top because it isn't comfortable (but what hide-a-bed is? :)) The kitchen is beautiful, stocked with all the pans and utensils you need, good drinking water, and a large dining table. It is so nice to be able to use the towels and bed linens provided. All you need to do is put them in baskets by the washing machine when you leave. Their are 3 deck levels which is again nice to have your own space but plenty of room to all gather together. There are plenty of deck chairs and comfy outdoor furniture. The location is perfect and the view is beautiful and to top things off were blessed to see the most beautiful double rainbow after a light rain! There is a gas fire pit which is cozy after sunset and covered decks to shelter you from the sun in the hot afternoons. You are in a cove like area so the water was calm in that area where other parts of the lake were a bit choppy. It was a nice area to use the paddle board and canoe that was free for our use. They also had bikes available that we didn't use. We took our own bikes and enjoyed the well maintained Sauk Buking Trail to Carrol, Iowa. If the weather isn't favorable there is plenty of room to gather inside the house with 3 different living rooms including a game room in the basement. I would definitely recommend this properly for a family or friend get-away!

    What a lovely home! It was a great place for a group of old friends to gather from all over Iowa. Like everyone says, you have everything you need and it is so luxurious. And I can't say how nice it is to have five toilets when you have a large group. We made meals in the well-appointed kitchen, shopped in the one store downtown, had a drink at The Bar and gathered for a picture at the Chief (Blackhawk). A wonderful place to eat, drink, and laugh. This was our second annual February gathering at this fabulous house. What a treat! Thanks Donna! Reviewer location Decorah IA
