great cozy escape from the city

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time on the lake, the house was very clean, great location close to the marina with the boat rental options. Got our security deposit back in the timely matter, very pleasant stay.

Owner's Response: We do our best to make everything as comfortable as possible. I am a business traveler and spend a lot of time in hotels. I understand that it is the little things that make for a pleasant stay. That is why I try to think of what I would like if I were staying here. Comfortable sleeping conditions, well cleaned and disinfected rooms, and most important is a well equipped kitchen, so you can easily make any cuisine. All you have to do is sit back and enjoy! Thank you for taking the time to write this review. It was a pleasure having you as our guest.

Best Location on The Lake!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Sven and Mary's house on the lake every summer since 2009 and always enjoy every minute of our stay! The house is impeccably maintained. Relaxing on the porch or any one of the decks or docks and enjoying the surrounding beautiful and peaceful view is a favorite pastime! The lake is perfect for floating around or swimming, especially when the sun is just about to set. We can't wait to return next summer! Thanks again Sven and Mary!

Relaxing Home with Amenities in Ideal Location

  • 5 of 5

The home's 3 decks and spacious boat dock (great for lounging/laying out) made our time on Lake Candlewood a real treat. The configuration of the home is perfect for gathering with friends/family, as the fully equipped kitchen is right next to the living room's wraparound couch and outdoor/screened porch. The house is tucked away in a calm neighborhood, though only 5 minutes from the Big Y grocery store. The view from this side of the lake is perfect, especially at sunset. We are so thankful to have stayed in Mary and Sven's home for our getaway from the city. Mary was super responsive and even gave us ideas on activities in and around town! And the security deposit was returned in a timely fashion. Thank you so much, and we hope to come back and stay here again.

Away From It All

  • 5 of 5

This has been the fifth year in a row that we have stayed and Sven and Mary's lake front home. Obviously, we love it! Their listing description is accurate, providing all the amenities of home and then some. The location is perfect, you feel like you are away from it all, but are actually a short drive from shopping, sight seeing and restaurants. Their home is always clean, well maintained and our deposit is promptly returned. We look forward to next summer!

Lakefront Gem

  • 5 of 5

This has been the fifth year in a row that we have vacationed at Mary and Sven's wonderful home on the lake. The location is private and peaceful. Stores and restaurants are not too close and not too far! The house is well maintained and clean. Mary and Sven have been a pleasure to talk with and our deposit is always returned promptly. We look forward to returning in 2014!

More than we could have hoped for!

  • 5 of 5

Although the pictures and description are very detailed, you don't get the full sense of how nice your stay will be until you actually get there. We found this house on HomeAway when looking for a place to stay with family with our boat. This house exceeded our expecations. The 2 decks provide a place to relax and a place to grill, the screened in porch was a great place for a coffee/drink while also have a small table you can eat at. Comfortable seating in living room for TV watching and the finished basement was a great place for kids & parents to stay. The dock & attached deck were great and are exposed to sun from before noon until sunset. Depth was good for boating, and the sandy area great for the kids to swim in. Appliances and furnishings are all modern and work well. Paypal payment was very easy and deposit was refunded promptly. This house is worth the 5 stars and we're looking forward to booking again next year.
