I can't say enough about this property and the personal service we received from Craig. We had very specific needs and a small window of opportunity and the owners were extremely flexible for us. The house, watercraft and overall experience were first class. I have already recommended this property.

Wonderful, warm home with all the amenities! A MUST STAY place.

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 8 women coming from all different parts of the country to spend time together. This home had everything! We absolutely LOVED the screened porch, dock, sand beach, bonfire pit, and patio with grill. It fit all of our needs and was clean and comfortable. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and hardly left the house for 5 days. Plenty of room to sleep, rest, enjoy the view for all of us.

The neighborhood was quiet and we had no noise issues. We cooked many tasty meals and had all the necessary utensils/pots/pans/wine glasses/etc. We used the grill most nights without issues. There were beach towels and bathroom towels, plenty of fire wood, clean sheets on comfortable beds.

The owner was very responsive, helpful, and flexible. It was a seamless process for all parties felt.

All of us agreed we couldn't have found a better place to stay and share our time together. We would recommend it to EVERYONE and in fact- several of us are looking at bringing out our families for a week or more in the future. Wonderful experience through and through.

This place has it all!

  • 5 of 5

This was an outstanding property and the manager was super responsive! We had 4 teens and 2 adults, and there was an entire area with a pool table, ping pong, kitchen and tv for them to hang out. There is a side screened in porch where you can watch all the passers by thru the trees and hang out. The large lawn and sandy beach are amazing. Another plus, there were great neighbors that were very friendly, welcoming of us as renters. The boat and jet skis were a must to rent, and the manager showed us how to run it all and answered all our questions. An amazing setting, great place and great people! We will definitely book this place again!

Excelsior is a quiet lake community with tons of amenities to choose from. Must walk the downtown as well as hit up some of the shops and many restaurants in the area.
