We stayed for several days at the end of July. It’s was a really fantastic house with plenty of room for our two large families and lots of kids. The path to the lake is quite steep, but manageable. We loved the kayaks, the calm feel of the no-wake lake, and the quiet neighborhood. Bike trail is nearby but not the easiest to get to and pretty advanced. Too hard for young riders. We’d be happy to stay here again.
Make Memories Here
We can't begin to tell you what a wonderful time we
had..The dock was a favorite place for our grandkids, fishing
and kayaking..The home was amazing, with all the comforts
of home..Would do it all over again!
Get Away with the Grands!
The house was exactly what you see in the pictures. Our grandchildren felt like they had the lake to their selves. The house was so clean and lots of room for everyone! We would go back again!
My family and I had a great time on our stay! First let me list the highlights of our stay:
We loved the private dock and the quiet cove that made it perfect for swimming and fishing. The kayaks were a huge hit and we all had a great time using them! The path to the water was quite steep, but it was nicely paved and had a hand rail so getting to and from the water was no problem. Also enjoyed the porch swing, the sun room, and the deck with a grill. The guys in our group spent hours playing ping-pong and foosball! The property managers had also left chocolate chip cookies for us. Thank you!
Now I will list the reasons I did not give this home 5 stars. Though the house can technically sleep 10 people, it’s really more comfortably set up for 8. The hide-a-bed downstairs was the most uncomfortable thing I’ve ever slept on, so I would recommend taking an air mattress instead of using that bed. There are only 8 flat ware settings, not 10. The kitchen was not particularly well stocked, and we, in fact, had to go buy our own spatula (scraper) because the kitchen didn’t have one. It also would have been very nice to have a griddle for making pancakes and bacon, but that wasn’t available either.
The soap dispensers in the bathroom, instead of being refilled, had all been filled with a small amount of soap and a large amount of water. Though the house had a plethora of wine/alcoholic beverage glasses, there were no drinking glasses. There were a few plastic drinking glasses for using on the patio, but that was all. The wi-fi was set up to only allow maybe 6 phones or devices at a time to connect, so we had to take turns using our smart phones or use our data. The bedrooms were very bright, which made it difficult to sleep in at all. Room darkening curtains would be a huge plus. There was not enough seating for everyone to relax in the living room or family room together. Upstairs there was one couch and one chair. Downstairs had one couch. Plenty of places to lounge, but not all together at the same time if we wanted to watch a movie or whatever.
Again, a nice home, but not really suited for 10 people. In comparison to other homes we have stayed at in a similar price range, we were fairly disappointed in this home.
Amanda, we're so glad you enjoyed your stay overall! We strive to build our listings in the most accurate light and can confirm the home is accurately depicted in the photos so guests have an idea of what to expect. We can confirm the kitchen is stocked with ten table settings and three spatulas in the drawers, but we apologize if you weren't able to find them. Additionally, the homeowner is working diligently to ensure future guests don't have any issues with the soap dispensers and are looking into reducing the brightness of the sun with curtains. We wish you would've reached out during your stay to let us know about these issues. The owner is just a call away and would've been more than happy to assist. As evident in other reviews, past guests have only had wonderful things to say about their stay and we are confident this home will continue to host satisfied guests. Best, the Evolve Team
Perfect getaway for our group of 10!!
House was perfect! Our group of 10 had plenty of room to spread out and not feel like we were crowded. We never ran out of hot water either! The property was a little steep (driveway and path to dock). Would definitely recommend this place!!
Wonderful house, clean, close to many activities. Everything we needed for three generations to have fun.
