For the first time, all of the family stayed under one roof since leaving our parent's home. What an amazing time. The Little Gatsby afforded plenty of individual space as well as many opportunities to gather for food, games, and reminiscing. The Host was clear with expectations and what was needed for us to be successful with our first VRBO rental and everything was as advertised. It has become a treasured family memory, we all hope to revisit again in the future.

We have stayed at that lake a few times and this has been one of the best vacations of all. We had a very warm and sunny 2 weeks even for the end of August. We enjoyed fishing, swimming, kayaking, playing games, and doing the scavenger hunt. The house was very accommodating and had all the conveniences of home. We are already looking forward to next year in hopes we can again rent this very lovely property.

The Little Gatsby was everything we hoped it would be and lived up to everything promised on the website. There was plenty of room for our party of seven adults. You really only need to bring your clothes and high expectations. Michael was very attentive through the whole process. I highly recommend the Little Gatsby; you’ll enjoy every minute of your stay.

Such a relaxing, beautiful spot! Michael’s home on Lake Watchic is a cozy, historic gem. We enjoyed our stay so much and hope to return. Super clean, thoughtful touches throughout and awesome communication with Michael.

Host went out of his way to make our stay as pleasant as it could be. House was very nice, plenty of space, very sound proof between rooms which was great with some early risers in the family. Setting was incredibly serene, could not beat the sunset views on the lake. Already talking with my family about renting here again.

The family and I had a great stay at this location, the Little Gatsby was incredible. We had ample room so whether we were gathering for conversation or looking for a quiet corner to read a book in, there was always to sit and be comfortable. The amenities were as described in the listing and there were no disappointments whatsoever. We would definitely book there again!

Relaxing family vacation on the lake
Our family very much enjoyed our stay in this charming, spacious lake house! There was far more than enough room for our family (me, my wife, and 5 boys.) The amount of space and things to do (indoor and outdoor) was truly amazing and made for the perfect getaway! The owner was very quick to respond to any questions and was very accommodating. We would highly recommend this to anyone!
