Amazing getaway!

We had a wonderful and relaxing weekend getaway. Barbara quickly responded to all our questions and requests. The house is very warm, comfortable and has everything you can think of. Lots of games for the kids, fully equipped kitchen, large dining table, comfortable beds. We enjoyed the time on a deck, having an amazing view of the lake, while making s'mores. Thank you Barbara for making us feel like we were home!

Welcoming for retreat or adventure

This is a gracious home in immaculate condition. The woodland setting is serene with a striking view of the lake. All of the amenities have been thoughtfully provided. The full basement provides many activities for "inside play".The surrounding countryside abounds in opportunities for outdoor adventures.

Comfort and Ease in a Beautiful Setting

We arrived in the rain for the weekend. I was so pleased, actually delighted, to find the house very, very clean and cheery with lots of windows and comfortable chairs. We unloaded suitcases and food in the garage, so we did not even get wet. The kitchen was very well-equipped; owners had thought of everything. There were pots, pans, spatulas, sharp knives, whisks, measuring cups, etc. The dining table seats eight comfortably. We had our dinner, then went to sleep in comfortable beds, got up the next morning to sunlight sparkling on the lake which is just a few steps off the spacious deck. We were so happy to be there together. We look forward to coming back with 6 friends. With a large game room downstairs, there is plenty for all to do.

Best place ever

The house was super clean and cozy. Kitchen has all possible supplies we might need. Lake is so beautiful, we spent hours of fishing on a boat. A lot of games downstairs for kids and adults. Parks close by with unique nature. We went hiking, swamped under waterfall. Barbara was making sure we were happy during our stay. Thank you Barbara! We all want to visit your place again! Daria

as promised

We were greeted by Mr. and Mrs, Good. The house was immaculate, well appointed. The rooms were large, beds were comfortable. We enjoyed cannoeing in the lake, meals on the deck, the cable TV (and plenty of DVD's as well), The boys also enjoyed the games in the very large and clean basement. Our stay was delightful. Our stay was very relaxing, which is what our family was looking for. I highly recommend it. Would definetely go back. Nelly

A great lakeside home! 4 & 1/2 stars

A lovely home by the lake. A great family get away with plenty of things to do for kids of all ages. The home had everything you could need or want, just by opening the right cabinet or door. The only thing that was missing was air-conditioning, but aside from that, it was a perfect place to take the family & friends.

Barbara Good

Owner's reply:

So glad you had a great time. There is a whole house Attic fan which cools the house. There are also ceiling fans. The game room in the basement stays in the mid-sixties--a great place to cool off. It is never above 70 degrees down there.

Thanks for the feedback and for staying at Lakeside. We hope to welcome you again.
Barbara Good




What a wonderful setting to wind down & enjoy nature inside and out. Sit in front of warm fireplace while watching ducks on the lake. Beautifully decorated and comfortable. Plenty of space for family game time as well as "doing your own thing". We look forward to returning with our entire family soon. Thank you for a wonderful weekend. Marlene
