Hi, we're John and Sharon!

We built the Gate House in 2009 specifically as a short term rental. So unlike many rentals on the lake, it is NOT old and in need of updating, etc. It has a great cottage/beach house feel to it without being too rustic. It has high quality fixtures and appliances without feeling "stuffy" or "elegant". It's the perfect family getaway (and we always include dogs when we use the word "family")

Sharon and I live right around the corner and are easy to reach when there are questions about the house, or things that might need fixing. We visit the Gate House every weekend during weekly cleanings to ensure it stay in tip-top shape.

Here is our property:

The Gate House was built in 2009 and is a beautiful place to spend a week on the lake. The 3000 square foot house is well laid out for relaxing and entertaining. In a place where most rental houses have a long set of stairs to the lake, the Gate House has a meandering concrete walkway....

The Gate House was the perfect setting for our family get together of four couples. As others have said, the house is lovely, spacious and comfortable. The views of the lake and cove are restful. The owners, John and Sharon, are amiable and responsible. We are fortunate to have found The Gate House and expect to return next year.
