The home was perfect for our family. The children loved the horseback riding, fishing and alligators. I love what you did with the swimming pool and fish pond.Kelly
Quiet and peaceful visit. It was nice to get away from everyday life and be close to home.Linda
The community is beautiful......far enough from the big city but close enough for a weekend getaway. It's our choice....quiet and relaxing.JaneStayed in The Lake House
Our cabin was fantastic, it was tucked away and private. Loved being able to fish off the deck whenever we wanted, canoeing was awesome we had never done that before and my kids loved seeing the gators, snapping alligator turtles, and our nightly visits from the raccoons lol.Alysha
