Christmas On The Lake
We had an amazing Christmas in this home. There was plenty of room with everything we needed. This was like our home away from home. The view of the lake was really nice on Christmas morning. I have to say that the owners were very helpful and nice. We would love to return to this exact lake home for another vacation.

5/5 Excellent

Beautiful home on the lake
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at "Time out of Mind.". The house is beautiful and in a quiet neighborhood. The view from the back deck and pier are beautiful. It was fun to fish from the pier. Communication with the owner was prompt and he was very courteous.
