Family Vacation
This is a great property for a group of family members or friends with ample bedrooms, bathrooms and space to play or relax both indoors and outside. Everything you may need is supplied except your food and drink, and the area has a lot to offer for recreation. We highly recommend Odie’s Place!

4/5 Good

Family Vacation
This cabin was very nice, with lots of room. My family and I enjoyed our stay. The beach area was very nice, with a sand beach, No weeds. Overall stay we really liked, we would rent again. Wished the dock was longer it was pretty short. We rented a pontoon, that took most of dock. Not a lot of room for swimming.

5/5 Excellent

Great property
The house was lively and large enough for 8 adults to spread out. The lake was clear and warm.

5/5 Excellent

Great place. Good Communication with Owner. Place slept 5 adults, 2 teens, and toddlers perfectly. Lake is great for swimming and fishing. Lots of movies and games, great deck. Only negatives were that a couple things we're broken and you are pretty close to neighbors, but the positives far outweigh. Will consider coming back.

5/5 Excellent

Great Week and a Great Property
Despite a couple of storms we had a great week. Our family of ten had plenty of space. The view from the cabin and from the beach is outstanding. The cabin and beach are very well supplied - even bikes and fishing poles. Kids had a great time on the beach. Great spot for campfires. The lake is beautiful and we caught fish. Very convenient being so close to town. We've already booked for next year!
