We booked this property for our family for the 4th of July. Everything was fantastic. We had our boat with us so the docks, the marina and the boat ramp being so close was perfect. The owners were great, couldn’t have gone smoother. We will definitely be back.

Some of the best memories were made here.
We booked this property, "Solitude" about nine months before the stay and were so excited to find a beautiful water-front home in just a little over three hours away. The property owner is very nice! We celebrated a 60th birthday for an avid bass fisherman. When arriving, it was easy to find and within viewing distance of a nice public boat ramp. We lucked out and got to watch some Bassmasters professionals practice fish during our stay from the house balcony. The house was very clean and inviting. The setup of the living room, kitchen, and dining room was perfect for eight adults. We particularly loved the large dining room table, the kitchen counter space to set up buffet-style meals, and two refrigerators. The kitchen had just about everything a group would need to prepare meals. We loved having the K-cup machine and four-slice toaster. The main frig has fresh water and ice which was great to save from having to buy several cases of water bottles. The bedrooms were inviting. The hall bedrooms share a Jack-n-Jill bathroom. The master bedroom has a private bathroom with walk-in shower with a seat (great for shaving legs). We loved how cool the air conditioning felt and having all the ceiling fans on after a long day outside in the heat. We spend many hours outside enjoying the sun deck with four chaise lounges and the morning lake breeze. The people who fished absolutely loved the lake-frontage and various areas to cast a line. We spend hours on the screened porch watching the boats launching and trailering, the geese swimming, the turtles popping out of the water, etc. It was very peaceful! In the evenings, we heard whippoorwills and a few different frogs/toads. It was too hot to enjoy the bonfire, but we loved how all the twigs and limbs were placed in the firepit to get the fire started before using the logs. What a great idea! We spent time on the lower level playing cornhole one afternoon/evening. It was so nice with the ceiling fan on and in the shade. I could type a book about our stay. To wrap it up, I'd say this is the perfect place to go and make great memories for a group of eight adults (sleeps 12, but four beds are twin-sized) looking for an escape from the everyday hustle and bustle of work and routine life. You will not find another place in at least several hours radius with the views, water-front property, house and dock layouts, amenities, and location of this place. We are already discussing when to go back!
