We think we're pretty awesome, but don't take our word for it...
Read some of the reviews our guests left for us!

"We have been having a wonderful time scrapping our memories that we brought with us and making a ton of new ones. The house has everything that anyone should need! It’s awesome!”

    Betty K. - New Effington, SD



"My eldest daughter (7) always feels homesick shortly after we arrive in a new place, but she said, 'Mama this lake house is so cool! I don’t feel homesick here!' This is such a beautiful home you put together! Thank you so much for this opportunity for our family to relax and most especially, feel at home. That feeling to us is truly rare and priceless, and means a lot to us. As we found peace, laughter and joy here. These memories we formed here, are no doubt going to be one of our most cherished."
