      Awesome property!!

      So much to do, you won’t need to leave the house for entertainment. The pictures don’t do this place justice!! We hope to be back.

        Fantastic Getaway!

        We had a wonderful stay at the Grass Lake Lodge with our family and friends! There is no underestimating the value of having an entire lake to yourself. Additionally, the house provided so much space that if you were looking for some peace and quiet, there were many places it could be found. Top notch cooking supplies and everything you might ever need such as duct tape, measuring tape, matches, flashlights, spices, etc. We really enjoyed walking the trails and spending time at the downstairs bar. The fire pit had plenty of wood and was a fun wind down to the evening after all of the water activities. We also rented the carriage house which was a real value since we had a large group. Special note: While it was not a major issue for our group, if someone is looking to stream or play video games online it is not allowed on the house wifi. The wifi signal is excellent in the lodge, but doesn’t reach the carriage house. We would definitely book this incredible house again!!

          Family Vacation

          We had such a wonderful week at Grass Lake Lodge. It was the perfect place for an extended family getaway. I've stayed in a number of similar private rentals, and this one was by far the nicest. It was clean, beautifully furnished, and well stocked with anything you could need. The set up with the carriage house was just right for my brother's family. The lake is beautiful and peaceful, and I loved the multiple trails to hike on. Our kids loved the lake, the stand up paddle board, the fire pit (smores), and the downstairs game room. We all loved the nature atmosphere, all the different birds, and the getaway from the city - it was much needed! Communication with the owner was excellent and immediate, and the local manager was also very responsive. I hope we can go back next year!

            Amazing House with Picturesque View

            This house is fantastic. Literally has every activity you would want to do: billiards, ping pong table, shuffle board, putting green, darts... And that's just the basement! The house is secluded which gives a nice 'cabin' feel to it. There's a big deck upstairs with a table great for playing cards or having a family/friend dinner. Great view overlooking the lake, when we were there a full moon was out which made for a great experience. Would highly recommend this place 10/10. Perfect getaway spot for a relaxing time away from it all. You won't be disappointed.

            5/5 Excellent

              Perfect Private Location!

              Beautiful home surrounded by picturesque private property. Great spot to chill and relax for the weekend without having to worry about anything. Bob was a great host and gave me everything I needed or requested. I highly recommend this location!
