Guestbook comments from the manager

I brought my salon staff to the house for a little retreat and we had a fantastic time. Jason was there to meet us and was very accommodating with questions. Lots of beds to sleep in- we had 11 people and 2 had to sleep on the couches but they were big and comfortable so no problems there. The lake was great, hardly any boat traffic on the weekdays and we had access to use the host's boats. Plenty of towels and extra bedding. The kitchen is very big and easy to cook in for so many people. We loved our trip and hope to stay here again next summer!

House on the Lake

  • 4 of 5

Upon arriving I was quite surprised at how old this home is but so unique..Jason was so helpful and everyone of our issues we had with the house he was there to fix the next day..We are from Washington State(Seattle area) and were here for my nephews wedding so there was three of us in our 50s my mother who is 77 and our kids all in there late 20s..Our kids loved the place being the downstairs had pool table golf game foosball and video games..We had a family dinner before wedding which consisted of 18 people and had lots of room..We also enjoyed the put put golf and the friday night water show on the lake..Things I would change here are master bedroom needs a tv and the tv in the main room has only limited channels.but the one complaint i do have is the windows were really dirty and when looking out at the lake this is something that is so noticeable..also opening the sliding glass doors in master bedroom the track was really dirty.I did not bring this to Jasons attention at the time but maybe something they may want to address for future renters..The kitchen was well stocked with enough plates glasses ,pots and pans.also had a pantry which was helpful..We were here for a week and other than the window issue i had we totally enjoyed our stay here..Thank You Jason for taking care of all our issues..

Great Lake House and Property

  • 5 of 5

We did an extended family getaway at this house - it couldn't have been better. Spacious house, lots of nice touches. We didn't really use the game room downstairs as the weather was nice and we took full advantage of the canoe, kayak, rowboat, firepit, grill, the 2 decks, the pier for fishing, etc. Jason, the property manager, was really responsive and helpful. We will definitely rent this house again!

Great house for a family vacation with enough room to host guests

  • 5 of 5

Loved that there was lake entry right on the property, and that the water was pretty shallow (a few feet) in the cove in front of the house. Attentive property manager. Plenty of room to spread out in the house.

A great house for mutiple families to stay together .

  • 5 of 5

The house worked great for a joint family vacation. The location has a protected area for kids to swim in, and the lake was fun to fish and kayak in. The master suite is large and has a fabulous lake view. We were there mid-week, and Wonder Lake was not busy. We enjoyed beautiful sunsets and lots of things to do all day. Jason greeted us in person when we arrived and was quick to help us figure out sleeping for all eleven of us. What a great time!

Memorable Family Reunion on Easter Weekend

  • 4 of 5

My family and I really enjoyed our stay at the lake house and would definitely consider coming back in the future. We built some memorable moments at the lake house during the Easter weekend and the sunsets over the lake were spectacular.
