CLEANING FEE DISCLAIMER: We are disenchanted that we have a pass-through cleaning fee so high these days but with everything going on in the country with higher costs and labor shortages, this is our new reality. We understand that when this fee is split by the large groups that is nominal per-person but we want you to know our hearts are that we wish it wasn’t so high regardless of that. It is a very large house to turn over in such a short amount of time and weekend help is extremely hard to find help. We only have 880 people that live here so we have to be the highest paid to retain the best and they are AWESOME! Conversely, we are pleased to remind you that we have so much included with this property. Unlimited firewood, propane for grill and gas fire pit, all the coffee supplies you need except coffee. All sweeteners, powdered creamer, filters and we have a selection of tea. We have spices and oils galore. You don’t need to bring trash bags or paper goods either. We stock enough for your entire stay, not just a starter amount. Bathroom and facial tissues, paper towels, trash bags, napkins, salt and pepper shakers, dishwasher detergent, laundry detergent, aluminum foil, assorted sizes of zip lock bags, plastic Saran-type wrap, shampoo, conditioner, body wash, bar soap, Q-tips, cotton balls, filled hand soap dispensers throughout, kitchen sponges and Dawn dishwashing liquid. We have first aid kits. We have hospitality boxes with all sorts of things you and your guests may forget. There is a huge list of everything stocked for you if you would like us to send to you. Our guests have told us in reviews that all they need to bring is food and clothes. One last thing on cleaning: If you are going to check out on a weekday, please inquire if there will be a break in this fee. There is no way for us to separate it out so we would be happy to address on a case by case if you initiate. We are so thankful you are considering booking this AMAZING property. Humbly, Dave, Ann and our AMAZING Team

This lake house property fit the bill for our large and diverse family. With multiple queen and king bedrooms as well as bunk rooms for the children there was plenty of privacy and excellent sleeping accommodations. The kitchen was incredible - we are a family of great cooks and take pride in preparing amazing dinners every night of our vacation. With vast supply of cooking utensils and devices at our fingertips - this kitchen pumped out gourmet meals night after night. I could go on and on about the activities available for the children and adults but suffice to say - no one complained of boredom the entire trip. The icing on the cake was the beautifully designed interiors of the house. Only a quick phone call and our host Dave responded quickly and efficiently providing excellent service throughout our stay.

We just got back from spending a week at this lake house. There were 29 in our group. There was plenty of room f or all of us. The property really is great. Management was great in responding to our questions and helping us out of a couple jams.

This property was everything we could ask for and more! The owners were a breeze to work with, the property was BEAUTIFUL, and it was exactly what we expected plus some. Our group of college friends (now 20+ years post graduation) and our families get together annually to celebrate our friendships. We are now at the point where we need something that can accommodate 12 families, including 22 adults and 16 children at our largest. For this trip we only had 9 families and a total of 28 people. We all had so much fun. We were able to spread out when we wanted to and then all eat and swim and hang out together at the main house. Everything was beautiful. There is nothing that we found we needed that wasn't there. The kids loved the playground, the adults loved the hot tub, and we all loved the beach area and fire pit! I cannot say enough about Dave and Ann. They checked in when we arrived and when we departed. We rented their pontoon boat for a day and it was so much fun and convenient to have access to it on site. We can't wait to return next year with hopefully the entirety of our group!
