An absolutely fabulous house... perfect for our family!

It was so much more than we expected.
Excellent in all respects

5/5 Excellent

A peaceful and tranquil waterfront property!
We rented for our family for Fall Break and to visit our oldest son at a nearby college. The house is well stocked and has plenty of sleeping options. The pool table was a hit with the kids and having a boat dock was so convenient for those who like to fish. The waterfront property is gorgeous and we will definitely rent again.

Traveled with family
Liked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! My family and I had a fantastic time at Waterfront Lay Lake Retreat. The home is beautiful and spacious and allowed our group of seven plenty of room to ourselves and easily could have comfortably accommodated more guests. The setting is amazing! We enjoyed watching sunrises in the morning over the lake, getting in our steps on the grounds during the day and making s'mores in the fire pit at night. The home was equipped with everything we needed to prepare family meals. There were also good dining options nearby. We had a bit of rain while there, but were still able to enjoy sitting outside in the enclosed section of the huge deck. Dawn and Randy were quick to respond when we had questions, and the property was very clean. I highly recommend their lovely vacation home!
