We just spent a fantastic week at John's Lake Home, with four generations - our children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. It was WONDERFUL! Upon arrival, everything was clean and ready to go. The beach area was really good for the little ones and the beautiful pavilion was one of the most used areas of the property. Early morning sunrises were beautifully & peaceful, we ate lunches there, read, visited and totally enjoyed time together. We enjoyed the raft and swim area as well as the pontoon, kayaks, paddle boat and canoe. And of course the game room was not overlooked. We used the fire pit almost every evening. There is just so many things to do here, its hard to remember and mention all the fun things we did Our one rainy day provided ample time for a volleyball game in the pool - what a great time and so much fun for everyone. We used the pool most every day and it was no problem checking it each day to make sure the pump was running. It seems like some guests are concerned about all the rules and guidelines to follow, but when you read them, they are all just common sense and things we all would want done if the property was our own. John is very considerate and was always available, and answered our texts and question in a timely way. We are so pleased with the property and will be back. We have already paid our deposit for our week next year.Thank you John and Elizabeth for sharing your lovely lake house with us.
We had a wonderful time with our kids and grandkids. The house was plenty big enough for all thirteen of us. The kids loved the bunk beds, toy area, and the beach and sand area. We enjoyed playing cards at the pavilion. We are looking forward to coming back again next summer. This house is highly recommended!
Beautiful home and everything you could need is provided. If you are looking for a peaceful vacation by a lake this is the place for you. We had a little issue with the pool but he had maintenance coming to handle it.
First of all, our family had a wonderful vacation. The pontoon and beautiful weather is what really made the vacation. The house has so many wonderful things and improvements it is too bad that there were some things not quite in order. I spoke to and texted with John many times over the course of the week. Some things were taken care of, some things could not be fixed or cleaned, and some I did not mention to him until after we were gone. He was very apologetic, explained everything to me, and was going to fix the things I told him about. Unfortunately, we had to deal with them, especially with some things not being cleaned up to standards I would expect and the pool not working. There are many rules and instructions that come with the house. If you don't mind all this, then you will definitely have a great time. There are many "toys" for all age groups to enjoy at this house. The location on the lake and the property are really wonderful.
We had 4 little ones and the rest were adults and teenagers had plenty of room to sleep, lower half had Queen, bed, kitchen area and living room area, was very confortable, John the owner was more than accomodating whenever I needed to call him, down the strreet was a store and a place to dine, they were the most anazing people I have met in a long time, even offered to walk with baby when we were eating and did , so sweet" and food was good. Kids used the kaayet and canoe ,and paddle boat most of the day, the experience was great, Home inside was stocked with anything we needed to makes meals. Pool unfortunately was solar heated,, couple of days weather was a little cold but the kids were also in there at night constantly, Thank you John for being such a great host and I'm sure we will be back again ! Nancy T I would give this a 10 out of 10 ! sandy beach, pavilion was an asset for kids and adults !!
John was very responsive to any questions we had. The choice of lake or pool was great and the kayaks, pedal boat and canoe, were a wonderful source of entertainment. The fish weren't biting but we found 2 turtles on shore! So much yet to discover. Down the road there was a place to buy American girl doll clothes that were handmade. You could feed the Buffalo at the buffalo farm but there's also horseback riding and a zip line. Great for a large family to relax and have fun together.
We were looking for a way to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary and bring our 4 children, their spouses and all our grandchildren together. They live in 4 states and as far away as Az. and Calif. We were a large group with the kids ages 6 years to 18 years and adults to age 74 years. The last time we were all together was 4 yrs. ago. I was so excited when I found this beautiful, well maintained home on the lake. The weather was great and though we used the indoor pool, most of time was spent in the lake. The pavilion and raft in the water were such great additions. We rented the pontoon and loved having the kayaks, canoe and paddle boat. The kids all interacted well with one another and also enjoyed the pool table, ping pong table, foosball, volleyball in and out of the water, and so much more. All of our evening meals were eaten outside, on the upper deck. The open concept in the house makes it easy to move around and not run into one another. Everyone kept so busy during the week that we never turned the TV on. We all had a lot of fun and tons of memories were made. I can't thank John and his family enough for offering this beautiful home for others to enjoy. What a pleasure working with John. From the very beginning, I found he was very prompt in returning calls or answering emails and answering all the questions. He laid everything out, in clear black and white. He also went out of his way and was attentive to all our needs. I would highly recommend this beautiful house on the lake.
Just wanted you to know our family had a great time at your place on Lake Diane.We didn't use the rec. room as much as I would have thought we would, but that was largely because the weather we had was just beautiful. Can't say enough about the huge deck and tables and chairs on it. The pool was great. The spacious living rooms. It all accommodated us so well. The new pavilion you put up on the shore of the lake was great. Those who wanted to hide from the sun found shelter in the shade of it, while just a few feet outside the pavilion the tanners were soaking up the sun, all the while both groups were close enough to engage in conversation with each other while watching and taking part in the water activities. What a great time. We really appreciate the opportunity your beautiful rental gave us to be in one location as a family. Nothing compares to a place like this for comfort and convenience.
My mother rented this home for a family vacation. We liked that it had an open floor plan and plenty of room for all of us to visit together. The kids loved the indoor pool and fishing off the dock. We rented the pontoon boat and it was great. I highly recommend this rental. We were going to rent again this year, but I see it's booked solid.
We recently rented this lake home for our annual family vacation. My wife and I, along with our children and grandchildren had a wonderful time. The home is very nice, well maintained, and has an open floor plan that allowed out family to enjoy time together for meals and during the lounging hours. The lake was nice and warm. The depth of the lake was a draw for us, it maintained a steady 4 foot depth for quite a distance, this allowed for a comfortable swim area for our youngest ones. The older kids loved kayaking and paddle boating. The yard was set up with a volley ball net that allowed for more family play when taking a break from the lake. Our family really loved the indoor pool. We put the pool to good use the two days it rained during our vacation. The pool was also nice for getting in that last night time swim before finally making the little ones go to bed. The owner communicated promptly and wanted to ensure that we had a great stay. We truly had a great family vacation, and really loved this home.
