Excellent family vacation

  • 5 of 5

I really appreciate Kaiser's family hospitality and making every effort to make their guests feel like home. They were at the site at time of check-in and gave me and my family a warm welcome to their home. They showed us the place and ensured to cover the details that can make the stay enjoyable and smooth. The place is well maintained and looks far better than what pictures say. Kitchen well equipped with all the basic needs and more (even bakery stuff, although would benefit from some organization), the pool is great size with a slide, hot tub provides great view, gas grill is covered in rainy days with a sink and mini fridge nearby, and row a boat in the pond. Lots of activities and can prepare all meals right there (just need some shopping from local store or meal delivery kits). Also there is a nearby (less than 5 mins by car) frozen custard joint that we all loved.

Everything is nice, and what make it like this is the owners prepared the place for their enjoyment too.

Definitely visiting again

2017 Eclipse

  • 5 of 5

I booked this home specifically to view the 2017 Total Solar Eclipse. We brought a couple of friends with us, and our son & wife joined us for one night. This property is the most fantastic place I've stayed in for a very long time (and my husband & I use VRBO at least 3-4 times a year for vacations). It's grounds & view are to die for - the inside of the house and outside is decorated beautifully and stocked with anything & everything you could possible need. The owners, Randy & Carol are extremely helpful and we enjoyed meeting them. I just can't say enough about this place, other than we plan to come back for another trip with the same friends for a week! 3 days was definitely not long enough to enjoy the peace & quiet & serenity of Big Oak Lodge!!! Thank you Randy & Carol :)

Perfect Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Having four small children, vacations that are relaxing are very hard to come by. Randy and Carol proved us wrong with their gorgeous property. We only had to leave the grounds once for some minor shopping and even though I was still 100% mom mode with cooking and cleaning, I didn't care!! The fishing was amazing, the scenery was amazing, the pool was amazing, etc. etc. I have nothing but great things to say about this place. My three year old learned to swim, my seven and eight year olds learned how to take fish off of the hooks, and even with all of the activity outside from her sisters, my one year old still got her naps (a mother never skips a baby's nap!) We will definitely be looking into coming back here. Thank you to the Kaiser's for opening up this amazing chateau for all to enjoy! We are so sad we had to leave!

Even better than we expected!

  • 5 of 5

Our time at Big Oak Lodge was fantastic! Our three kids (12, 10, 6) had a great time fishing, swimming (and going down the slide!), exploring, playing frisbee golf, running up the hill, etc. It was such a fun, relaxing time, with lots of memories made! The pool area is outstanding, with tons of outdoor furniture and plenty of pool floats etc. We grilled out every night, roasted smores at a campfire, and played board games at night. Awesome sunset views! Great place for family bonding. Randy was so easy to work with and very responsive. Would easily come here again! Thanks for a great family vacation!

Highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

There was something for everyone. The guys got up early to fish each morning. The teens and tweens liked sleeping in the pool house. The kids were in the pool from morning to night, then the hot tub. We enjoyed walking the beautifully landscaped grounds and gardens, or sitting on the deck laughing at the geese. The young adults played frisbee golf. Most dinners were at the outdoor kitchen. There was plenty of living space for several families. Our families have shared many nice rental homes, but this was our favorite.
