Great time on Channel Lake
The house was just as presented on VRBO. It looked like it was professionally decorated. The yard was wonderful and we set up a kiddie pool and slippery slide. Beach was right there, and kids had so much fun in the shallow swimming area. I would certainly recommend the home to other families!
Thank you April & family.
We are so glad you enjoyed your stay.
Please come again!
Overall, we loved our stay at Julie's property! With Covid, we did not want to fly anywhere, and after staying there I see flying is not always necessary! We had such a wonderful time; the yard is big so we were able to play all of the outdoor games we brought with us. Also, having the beach area just steps away was wonderful! It was so quiet and her home was set up beautifully. Our only issue, was that there were some glasses we took out to use that were not fully clean and there was a bunch of food in the freezer when we arrived that we had to throw away. Finally, the screen on the screened in porch is torn, so when we tried to sit in there some bugs were flying in. But, overall these issues were minor and we would definitely stay at this property again.
Perfect Lake House!
The house is amazing and has a little charm with the decor. It has a good size backyard and a small private beach that the neighboring houses can use also. No one else was there for the 4 days of our stay though. Definitely will be booking again in the future!
We really enjoyed ourselves.We will definitely be coming back.
Thank you Julie!
Perfect for what we wanted!
We were looking for a place to stay that was safe during the covid quarantine. This place was perfect for my family with two small children. The beach is not far at all from the house and we could even do naps in the house and have our baby monitor reach down to the beach. There was also a swing set that my kids really enjoyed.
Thank you for the kind words, we are glad you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you again soon!
