Stunning, inviting and comfortable home. We loved our stay and would highly recommending this place! The home is even more spacious and beautiful than the photos display, it is right by the waters edge, and is immaculate. The kitchen is an entertainers delight (and the house smells so amazing..) Beds are to die for, even the bunk area, everyone slept like kings and queens! Mike truly made us feel relaxed and welcome. (Only little downer was to discover on arrival that the lake is not good to swim in due to toxic algae..) But hey, it did not stain our stay, with so many other activities on offer at home: pool table, darts, board games, spa, fires.. This is the kind a place memories are made! (I would not hesitate to book it if it's available..) Thanks for a fabulous weekend x
