This was our first Holiday rental and won't be our last. :-)
We stayed here for 5 nights the last week of July, with another couple and their 3 kids. The house was big enough for all 7 of us and at no point did it feel crowded.
The house was fully equipped with everything you would need for a stay- minus the food as you bring your own. (I suggest you bring everything food wise as the corner store on the property is quite expensive) We stayed in the upstairs bedroom and have no complaints- bed was comfie, room was large and the bonus was having a full bathroom on the same level. The 2 bedrooms on the main level are a fair size as well with a second full bathroom.
Kitchen was fully stocked with everything you would need to cook- living room had a pull out sofa bed, loveseat, chair, a gorgeous hope chest that stored bedding for the pull out sofa. 32 inch? flat screen TV, books and movies (VHS).
They supplied all the cords we needed to hook the laptop up to Netflix and whatever else the family wanted to watch.
They also supplied an assortment of board games and tennis rackets.
The bonus was use of the washer and dryer- this was the first time I came home from vacation with not having to do 3 loads of laundry. Loved it!!!
The grounds at the house and all of the property is immaculate. The mini golf was fun (according to the kids) the onsite pool was a tad bit overcrowded so we made use of the lake.
The lake is quite a bit of a walk especially in the heat so I suggest you drive to the parking lot and just walk down the hill. When it's +30 out, walking up that huge hill isn't pretty.
The lake had rentals of kayaks, wake boards? (those things you stand on and paddle) with a cost of $30 for the day- unlimited use for the whole family.
They also had gazebos and lounge chairs for personal use- just get there early if you want one. These tend to be snatched up pretty quick.
I saved the best part for the last- the view is BREATHTAKING. This in itself is worth the stay. Even though the road noise could be loud at times, the view quickly made us forget about the noise.
The owners of this property were wonderful to deal with. They responded to all our emails in a timely manner and answered the 101 questions we had.
Thanks again for making this vacation with our friends one that we will never forget.
