“Prefect lake house”

Reviewed 19 Oct 2016

We rented this house to see the fall foliage. We had a great time and were very happy with the house, the layout, space, fireplaces, deck and fully equipped kitchen. The house is very well maintained and well stocked. I would rent it again if I have the chance.

Owner's reply: Thank you--we are sorry that the lake was low and is being drained in order to fix the spillway. But it is still beautiful at Lakeside with the sparkling springs. Come visit us again!

“very nice family vacation”

Reviewed 1 Sep 2015

I wanted a relaxing vacation with my 2 children (19 & 20) & each brough a friend. The home was perfect with 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, 2 living rooms, game room basement. Plenty of room for all without feeling crowed at all. We enjoyed camp fires at night, white water rafting, & canoes. We brought tubes for everyone that we tied together & floated on lake (thought the water was mucky if bottom was touched). We even saw a couple of black bears across lake! We had a wonderful time.

Owner's reply: We love to hear about vacations at Lakeside that are wonderful! visit us again, and have a great year.

“Lake house relaxation”

Reviewed 26 Jun 2015

Had a great time celebrating my husband's birthday with friends. We loved sitting on the back porch and looking out at the lake, that was super-relaxing! We also really enjoyed all sitting around the dinner table together sharing meals. The game room was also great (for a bunch of grown-up game-players)!

Owner's reply: Thanks Rachel, It was great having you as guests at Lakeside and hope you come back again! All the best, Barbara Good

“Amazing getaway!”

Reviewed 2 Nov 2014

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!

“Comfort and Ease in a Beautiful Setting”

Reviewed 15 Sep 2014

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.

Owner's reply: Thanks for your kind thoughts. We hope to welcome you again!

“Best place ever”

Reviewed 1 Sep 2014

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

Owner's reply: Thank you! It was great having you as guests and so happy you had a great trip and a fun vacation. We hope to see you again. Barbara

“as promised”

Reviewed 28 Aug 2014

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”

Reviewed 7 Jul 2014

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.

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
