  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.

Description

DESCRIPTION:
Like the classic film that shares its name, It’s a Wonderful Life will take you on a journey of self-discovery and inspire you to grab your loved ones, hold them close, and spend your days wrapped in the warmth of their love. You’ll spend countless happy hours enjoying the home’s game room with shuffleboard, foosball, and pool tables. Enjoy the cool mountain air as you toast marshmallows in the outdoor fireplace, or cozy up by one of the 4 indoor fireplaces for added fun. Close to the water's edge, summer fun is at your fingertips! Head down to the lake for a day spent splashing around and sunbathing.  As the film says, “no man is a failure who has friends,” so celebrate the blessings in your life with an unforgettable retreat with all the people who make your life richer. Because it’s true: It’s a Wonderful Life!

Our Go-To Home Away From Home

This is our second stay at It's A Wonderful Life and we had a great time. The owners have updated several areas of the house, including the great game room, that provides the perfect spot for family fun and celebrations. The addition of the new bar really adds to that room. The five bedroom suites are perfect for multiple families and allows for just the right amount of privacy. We love this house and it's close proximity to skiing and other activities. We have made wonderful life memories there and hope to return.
Thank you for taking the time out to share your experience with us. We're so happy you enjoyed your stay at It's a wonderful Life and can't wait to have you back soon. ~Deborah Fike, Railey Vacations

A great experience from start to finish.

Owners have prepared this property to allow the renter to feel completely at home. You will always have something to do from outdoor to indoors. TVs virtually in every room, an awesome parlor game room, the latest video games and DVDs in many rooms. The outdoor hotub is large and like new. The outdoor space over all is the best and holds a beautiful view of the water and hills. A great experience from start to finish.
