Absolutely Amazing, Beautiful Wedding
We rented this property to have a small wedding. The house is so comfortable it really feels like home away from home. It is so peaceful at night you can see a million stars from the yard, and relaxing on the porch is everything. First thing in the morning the sun hits the pond just right amd casts a beautiful light over the water amd the yard. Also the dock going out onto the lake is super romantic and so much fun for kids. The hosts are absolutely amazing too and really take the time to answer any questions and help with any of your needs.

The Lake House
We had a fabulous time at this property. A few things to note: A property guide was emailed to us after booking and it answered every question with very clear directions. Very much appreciated! However, the guide mentioned that there are no fires are allowed in the indoor fireplace (this is misleading as there are photos of the fireplace and the amenities list a fireplace). The owner was very responsive and helpful before and during the trip. Even when I asked a silly question when I couldn't find something, he gave me a thoughtful answer. Very responsive! We brought our own groceries, but every possible item was there in case we forgot anything. A good variety of appliances were available. Lots of pots, pans, plates, utensils, etc. Overall we had a great time! We loved the quiet seclusion. We were visited by a flock of sandhill cranes. The lake is huge and we didn't get to tour even a fraction of it during our stay. It's close to trails and close enough to Gainesville. My 5 year old son had a blast with the Jack and Jill bedroom layout. He calls it the log cabin. We loved the rustic details. We definitely plan to stay here again.
