Grand Serendipity - The Best of Times!!!

  • 5 of 5

We celebrated my boyfriend's birthday with a small group up at Grand Serendipity this past weekend. The weather was PERFECT and we sat on the patio long into the nights. The water was great for swimming too! The amenities spoiled us and made it very easy to relax. The skies were clear and we got to stargaze together. We had so much fun and made great memories along the way. Thank you so much for the wonderful hospitality! We will certainly be back to visit Grand Serendipity!!

Fabulous property!

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous property that had a lot of peaceful and serene views with an abundance of wildlife. Loads of beds and bedrooms finished with all the amenities. Games galore for family and friends are available. We had a Grand Serendipity Challenge! It consisted of different games to figure out the winner. Pool, pingpong, croquet, jinga, canasta, kayaking, etc. Lots of competition!!! Fun was had by all. It did need to up date the available kitchen pots, pans, etc. But all in all, I could live here and be very happy!

Perfect place for a large family!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family (of 20) had a wonderful time over Thanksgiving week at Grand Serendipity. There were enough activities to keep all 10 grandchildren happy. We would all like to go again especially during the summer.

Perfect for a Large Group

  • 5 of 5

We have a group of families and friends that travels together once a year. We originally go to a lodge on the Buffalo River, but they had to cancel after they were hit by a tornado. We are all very fond of the property we usually visit, so we were concerned about going somewhere new. This place blew us out of the water. We loved everything about it. The ample space was perfect for multiple families. There were so many amenities for us to enjoy. Ping pong, volleyball, basketball, fire pit, pool, etc. The kids loved being able to run around and the adults did, too! Thank you for accommodating!

Excellent property

  • 5 of 5

The manager was very pleasant. She acted promptly to fix the upstairs A/C and move their boat so we could use the slip. The property had numerous amenities: basketball court, volleyball net, pool table, games, ping pong table, large water floater, wifi, and cart to haul people/gear to dock.

Great accomadations for my large family

  • 5 of 5

The owners provide so many things to do and "toys" to keep us all happy. The large open house was great for us all to hang out or the large patio space to enjoy. The bedrooms were very comfortable and every room having a flat screen was a plus (for the rainy day). Also, we have many young kids which all loved sleeping in the large room together. Overall, this house was one of the best rentals we've stayed at and would highly recommend it. Thanks again!
