  1. Lake Front
    Any property that borders the state-owned ‘buffer strip.’ Lake Front means you have access to the water for swimming and a boat dock if applicable to your home. You can go directly to the water from your door with no road between. Lake Front does not necessarily mean you have a view of the water, since much of our shoreline is wooded.

Rainy days will never be an issue here! Start or end your day on the lakeside deck beathing in the fresh air as you enjoy your morning coffee or an evening drink. On sunny summer days, hop in the boat to explore the lake or just relax on the private dock and go for a swim. Located on Lake Shore Drive, you are just minutes from all the action that the area has to offer. Fantastic restaurants, stylish boutiques, and an abundance of activities are just a short drive from the home! When you are ready to wind down after a day on the lake or on the slopes, you can come together in the great room to cozy up in front of the fire, or retreat to one of the 5 bedrooms for some quiet alone time.

Great house/amenities!

This house was the perfect place to spend our weekend getaway. My family of 5 absolutely loved the pool, the access to the lake and the beautiful views the house had to offer. We loved our weekend at this house so much we already booked it again for the fall.We wish there was access to a grill and thought the kitchen needed more functional supplies like coffee cups, spatulas, pans, etc. Other than those minor things, the house was wonderful! Can’t wait to visit again!

Hi Lauren! We appreciate you taking the time to leave us a such a kind review and we will be sure to pass along your suggestions concerning the kitchen to the homeowners for consideration of future improvements. Otherwise we are happy to hear that the home, location, and amenities were spot on and we hope to have the chance to rent to you again soon! Madison, Railey Vacations

Very nice, comfy house we got. Loved the location and house. Loved the pool and pool table. So much to do around the house we didn't have to go anywhere. We had some maintenance issues with lights that they fixed immediately upon our request. Just the mattress comfort, HVAC unit operation, and trash can quantity in the house are our only critiques. We would definitely come back to this house when we rent again.

Hi Ali! We appreciate you taking the time out to leave us with your thoughts and we do apologize for the minor inconveniences you ran into during your stay. We will be sure to pass along your concerns with the mattress comfort, HVAC, and the trash can quantity to the homeowners for consideration of future improvements to the home. Otherwise we are pleased to hear that we were able to quickly assist you with the issues concerning the lights and we hope that you and your group had a wonderful time together!

This was Spring Break for our grandsons, ages 7 and 4; both are dedicated swimmers and spent hours in the pool. We hiked teails and ate famous donuts; read books and even went to the movies. The weather was so beautiful and could be enjoyed from every room.

Love to hear that you had an awesome time with us, Morgan! It’s great to hear that the home, location, and amenities all came together for a great vacation experience. Thanks for the review and please come see us again soon! Madison, Railey Vacations

Very nice house. The pool and pool table were amazing for the kids. It was very comfy. Wished the elevator worked. We had a great time. Three ideas for improvements would be more trash cans in every room, more comfy mattresses, a tutorial on the HVAC thermostats and how they work. If we would rent again we would definitely come back to this house.

We appreciate your feedback Ali, and we will be sure to pass along your suggestions to the homeowners for consideration of future improvements. Otherwise we are pleased to hear that you had a good time with us and we hope to have the chance to rent to you again in the future! Madison, Railey Vacations
