Great location
5/5 stars
The location was absolutely awesome close to everything but on the lake and quite! The large windows made the lake view even better. We really enjoyed our stay!

Nice house
5/5 stars
The house was very clean and the view of the lake was great! The only thing I would say is if you are bringing a boat just know the driveway is SMALL and it’s kind of awkward backing a trailer in. We had to park the trailer and unhook to park the truck beside it. Other than that it is a great place to stay!

Amazing stay in The Art House on the Lake
5/5 stars
This house and location are amazing! There is everything you would want in a working home, from baking dishes and every kitchen utensil imaginable to plush comfy towels. When I thought of something I needed in the moment, there it was. It felt very homey yet also chic. The layout is fantastic and our stay felt extra special with the ease and comfort that this space provided. Plus the waterfowl on the lake! We heard bird calls that were so cool and different and saw a myriad of different birds the entire time. So happy we stayed here, it really added so much to our trip!
