The back deck at Destro's Lakefront is a place that you could sit and watch the ducks from all day long. There must be two dozen Mallards out in front of the house today - their shiny green feathered caps are plunging in and out of the cold water like they paid full price at an all you can eat lakeside buffet. They appear oblivious, content and happy to be here and without skipping a beat I can tell you that you will too. This house is a slice of heaven. You head inside to the kitchen to see what smells so good and fill your mug up with hot apple cider. "Oh My God" Pot Roast in on the menu - your favorite aunt calls it that because that's wha...t everyone says when they take their first bite. All of the fireplaces in the house are lit and the crowd that you hauled up the mountain with you is enthralled in a loud game of Monopoly. You grab your mug and a book and head up the most amazing staircase to a quiet little area where you can watch the sun go down on the lake and attempt to get a few chapters in before dinner. It's harder than you thought though. Not that the book isn't good - it's just that everyone is having such a good time that it's hard not to stop and smile at simple joys in life and this place is full of them. Destro's Lakefront is a place to live life like the Mallard. Drop in, take it easy - eat, relax and enjoy your friends and family; treat the bad stuff like water off a duck's back...it works for them.
A wonderful family gettaway, that we won't forget.

The service was great, very helpful at check-in. Our grandchildren ask if we could come back again. The home was very comfortable, the best thing was the big windows, where you could look out and see the beautiful lake and mountains. The only negative thing, is the furniture outside needs attention, and the dinning room chairs inside needs repairs.
A wonderful time with the family in a beautiful place.

My family and I really enjoyed our stay at Destro's Lakefront. The rental was beautiful and had everything we could possibly need to enjoy our vacation. The grandkids had a great time and are already talking about going back next year. The only negative issue was we were planning to cook on the grill and we could not get it to work at all. It was very old and very dirty and it did not work. Another grill was delivered the next day and it really wasn't much of an improvement, however it did work and we were able to cook out that evening. The place was beautiful and had wonderful amenities except for the grill. It would be a wise investment for the owners to get a new and updated grill for their renters. They would probably not receive any complaints or negative reviews because everything else was great.
