NOTE ON LAKE LEVELS: As of 3/15/18 the lake is currently 18 feet down from full capacity. The decreased water level has left the dock at this property, unusable for lake activities and the lake has receded extensively such that it cannot be seen from the house. The lake is still useable and accessible from other locations and is always a ton of fun, however, shallow areas such as where our dock is, do not permit its use nor accessing the water. The price quoted has been adjusted down to reflect the low lake levels and includes the cost of a slip at one of the nearby marinas if you desire to bring a boat. We have adjusted the nightly rate down by about 20% to reflect the lake levels. We do not expect this low water condition to correct itself unless we get an unusual amount of spring/summer rain. Please call us with any questions.

NOTE: The owners of this property may make changes to the layout, furnishings, and amenities from time to time that may not be updated or reflected in photos and descriptions. Please contact us with any questions.

What makes this cabin unique


Guestbook comments from the owner

Had a wonderful time with our large family at this beautiful home. Plenty of room for the 12 of us. Kids loved the open upstairs loft. It ended up being the kid's hangout with beds for 8, a TV and pool table. Started getting a bit cold at night but the hot tub helped us warm up. Great help from Lory and the staff. Had a problem figuring out how to use the TV but a quick call and we were all set to go. New carpet was very nice!! I would rent this again in a heart beat.

Great Property!

  • 5 of 5

This house had everything we needed for our annual girl's trip. The kitchen was fully stocked with EVERYTHING we needed to cook full meals each day we were there. The house itself was very clean and everything was in working condition. Unfortunately, the lake no longer comes up as far as it once did so there isn't much of a lake view, but that wasn't very important to us. Management company was very nice and responsive. Beds were very comfortable and pillows and blankets were great, too!

Thank you for everything.. we will definitely be back!

Great house for a large group!

  • 5 of 5

Love the big open great room. The loft is perfect for a group with a lot of kids. Walking distance to the lake and even though the backyard lake access was dried up the kids enjoyed exploring and were able to walk to the the water. Nice hot tub. House was clean and well maintained. I would definitely stay here again.

Overall a fine house but needs new mattresses

  • 3 of 5

This house is spacious, clean, and has a lovely front yard and backyard. The home also features great amenities including a hot tub, pool table, and various games. We had to reduce our rating however because the mattresses in some of the rooms are very old and need to be replaced. One of the king mattresses is completely sunken in which makes for a bad night of sleep. Also some of the appliances are on the old side and don’t work very well. The dryer particularly needs to be replaced or repaired. Overall, we enjoyed our stay, however the home needs some attention.

Exactly what you’d expect!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the house was exactly what we were hoping for! Large, clean house with plenty of room inside and out for the kids. Our experience started with a quick, efficient check in process. After, an employee, Laurie, met us at the house to make sure we knew how to work the thermostat, fireplace, spa etc. The spa was clean, hot, and worked like new. Checkout was simple and just sent a text message saying we left. We will be utilizing WOW Rentals in the future!

Great location, beautiful layout / home

  • 4 of 5

The home is large and beautiful and in a great location in town. Easy to get around. The pool table, darts, ping-pong and hot tub were fun. The only reason it's getting a 4 star from me is because the images showed a basketball game that our kids could play upstairs which was the main reason we chose this location but when we got there, there was no basketball. Felt a bit like false advertising.

Owner's Response: Thanks for being great guest. Glad you enjoyed your stay. Sorry the basketball game was removed but it probably would have been a big disappointment. It was a plastic $100 game that broke after a few uses! We say in our ads that owners change the content of their houses from time to time. If it’s anything substantial we order new photos. But they are expensive!!

The property was beautiful and well maintained!!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for a family birthday celebration. The impression of the property was that it was very upscale and well kept. It was a beautiful place for the event. The home slept 14 easily, as the description said it would. We especially liked the views and all of the windows. The home was clean, and we felt very comfortable there. The customer service at the rental company was perfect. All questions were answered. They even delivered wood to us! Everything was explained to us by the rental representative. It was a perfect home and a perfect trip. I would recommend this home and the company we used to a friend or relative. We enjoyed the village which was very close by.
