The Early Favorite

Modern Lake House Oasis | Watersports Access | Family Fun

5 BR
4 Baths
Sleeps 12


The early favorite for a reason! This is a premium property in a perfect location for a week on the lake or a weekend at the track. You are only minutes away from Central Avenue and Oaklawn Racing and Casino. You'll have the tough choice of entertaining friends and family inside or out, because both spaces are so great. This house has everything you need! On the 1st floor, there are 3 king bedrooms, 2 baths, kitchen, living room, and dining area. The bottom floor has 1 king bedroom, 1 bunkroom, 2 bathrooms, a second living area, a kitchenette, and a game room with ping pong and a pool table! The house is located on a very quiet part of the lake and has multiple dining/seating areas on both floors of the patio!

The boats and jet skis portrayed in these pictures are not available to use or rent during your stay. Thank you for understanding.

5/5 stars
The house was great and as advertised. Very good location close to everything we needed. The host, Grant, was easy to contact and took care of any issues that arose.
- Mark
Great lake house
5/5 stars
Our large group of 15, enjoyed the house. The views are beautiful, the game room is entertaining and there is everything you need in the house. 4 bathrooms are very convenient and the home is spacious. On the down side, the refrigerator freezer and kitchen in general had a lot of expired food, expired in 2017. Also there are a lot of personal items, like clothes, medication, lingerie etc lying around. If the personal items can be put away, it would be perfect. Excellent walking area in the neighborhood and great view of fall colors.

Thank you! We love these reviews because it lets us know what we can do better. We have gone through the kitchen and the expired food is gone. We are also going to add another owners closet to put the personal items in. Thank you for your feedback and kind review. We are glad you enjoyed your stay.
