Guestbook comments from the host:
A great place for family. All kinds of gathering spaces indoors and out. We enjoyed watching sandhill cranes at the water's edge and the swimming pool and hot tub were marvelous. The many bedrooms and bathrooms made for great personal privacy so we never felt crowded. We had a splendid time.
Amber's home was perfect! The home is spacious and comfortable. The rooms are all huge with private bathrooms! The master bedroom had a double headed shower, a jetted tub, and double sinks with a private toilet and a large walk in closet. Every room has a TV, including the patio upstairs and the living room. The patio on the second floor is a heavenly place to enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning with a view of the lake. There is a theater room with a large projector and a large selection of DVDs. The room also has a pool table and a small bar location was also perfect there are no shortage of places to eat and there is a grocery store less than two miles away. Amber was very quick to reply leading up to, and during my stay . Over all the home was a hit for the whole game and is very versatile, being appropriate for small events, family gatherings, and romantic getaways!
Loved the home and quick response from the love the master bedroom/bathroom and my guest are still talking about the rest of the house and hot tub/pool. Thx again Amber and I will contact you again for future rentals.
A beautiful full house that you and your family and friends can make memories in.
We hosted a staff retreat at Amber's. The size and space of the home was perfect! Each room has its own private bathroom. The living areas are beautifully decorated. The pool, deck, and balcony areas are fantastic! The cleanliness of the home was excellent. Amber was very quick to respond to all of our questions.
Great location Nice, responsive property owner Beautiful property
Simply Awesome! Very impressive interior and spacious place. It all worked out perfectly and Amber responded in a timely and helpful manner throughout the whole process. Highly recommend!
Amazing place real clean! Hospitality was great We will always go back
The house was Absolutely BEAUTIFUL!! This was perfect for our small wedding. Each guest had their own suite. The morning views were breath taking. Amber made sure we had everything we needed. You may want to bring extra toiletries, washing detergent and garbage bags. But, that's the normal.I'm looking forward to returning for our one year anniversary

When we arrived at the home and opened the door it was breath taking! All of the rooms were beautiful, and the place was clean and equipped with everything in the kitchen. The first night we didn't have hot water and contacted the property manager and the problem was repaired within hours. The area is secure with a gate code, and located close to everything. This is the idea place for a large family and friends to be together under one roof. We will definitely rent this home again.

Love the place!
We absolutely loved this villa! We enjoyed sitting by the pool watching the sun set every evening. Keeping the kids away from all the statues and sculptures was a bit of a task but we definitely enjoyed.

Mothers Day out
Nothing’s perfect but this was soooo close! Spacious bedrooms everyone enjoyed their private baths. Dishes were not clean and one guest had old, stained linens and the floors hadn’t been mopped. Otherwise, grand!

We did Thanksgiving in this mansion. It was all that and more. If you want to stay in a real mansion this is the one. I am so glad I found this one for my family. We enjoyed rvery second. When there was a question the owner and the property manager were quick to respond. Great property, great owners, and great property manager. Really didn't need any pots, pans, or dishes. We didn't know so we brought our own. It's equipped with a washer and 2 dryers. I recommend it to all who inquirer.

I may never own a mansion but I said in one
This home was all it was said to be. My family stayed here for our Thanksgiving family getaway. This home was more than I could imagine. Even looking at the picture doesn't do it the justice it is. Very large and spacious. I would recommend this home to anybody who wants to stay in luxury. We will surely stay here again if available.
