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.

House needs improvement.

Moondancer presents well on the website but needs many improvements. Window covering up stairs, more seating in family area and dining room. Replacement of cooking pots and pans as existing were worn out. The home has many stairs and thus is not conducive to those with mobility issues. On the positive side, it is located in a nice community on a quiet part of the lake and has a great lawn for the kids to play.
Thanks for your review, Thomas! I’m sorry to learn that Moondancer didn’t meet your expectations and will be sure to share your feedback with the homeowner for use during future updates. We appreciate you taking the time to share your experience. I’m glad to hear that there were several aspects of the home that you thoroughly enjoyed, and hope that these positives will influence your decision to visit us in the future, as we would love to host you again soon. - Lainey, Railey Vacations

It was a great experience, house was amazing. Only issue we had was the hot tub, we called maintenance and they never showed up when they said they would.
I'm sorry to hear that you experienced issues with the hot tub, Michael, and am regretful to know that our team was unable to address these issues prior to your departure. We do make it a priority to respond to each maintenance order promptly and we appreciate you informing us of this occurrence so that we can prevent it from being repeated in the future. I'm happy to learn that this inconvenience did not prevent you from enjoying a wonderful stay at Moondancer overall. Thank you for your review, and we sincerely hope to remedy any of your lingering disappointment with a fantastic stay in the future. - Lainey, Railey Vacations

We love this home and its location. We have stayed in various homes and locations in the past, but we have been coming back to Moondancer for the last 4-5 years. House is kept up well, and the layout is perfect for a big group. Located on a quiet cove, Moondancer has a beautiful view of the lake, a nice yard, and a fantastic fire pit for all to sit around and enjoy. Can't say enough good things about this home.
This is so fantastic to hear, Don! We're glad you've found the perfect home-away-from-home in Moondancer. Thanks for this wonderful review, and we look forward to hosting you again! - Lainey, Railey Vacations

What a wonderful and gorgeous home - more than enough space for everyone. I was actually surprised how much space there was. The beds were comfortable with plenty of pillows. The twin beds room is large and I love the touch of a personal wall light for each of them. The kitchen was easy to function in with several people cooking and prepping at once. We enjoyed the outside fire pit with plenty of seating all the way around. And the hot tub was in great working order. So relaxing to be in this peaceful cove and have such a wonderful view of the lake. We have already booked to return to this home next summer!
I'm so happy to hear that your group had a wonderful time at Moondancer, Coni! We can't wait to have you back again next summer. - Lainey, Railey Vacations

Excellent property and location, very clean, AC worked great compared to our experience last year at another location. Only 2 minor issues to mention, grass around the house was a little high and the boat parked in the driveway made parking a little tight.
Thanks for your feedback, Tanaka! We're happy to know that you had a great time at Moondancer overall.
