We (my family, 5 adults) stayed here for 2 nights and we all agreed that it was a lovely place. The house is in top condition with an extremely well equipped kitchen (everything you could need was there). The house is very tastefully decorated and has a nice cosy feel to it. We used the outdoor grill and it worked perfectly. I liked that very thorough instructions and guidance was given on an information sheet in the kitchen as well. The wifi worked well too. Loon Lake itself is across the road and down a little path. We really enjoyed out stay here.

My family and I had a great 4 day stay at this Loon Lake house. Comfortable beds, roomy living room, dining area and kitchen, fireplace ( with lots of cut wood to burn), TV, internet, etc. Felt right at home. The owners are very nice and I talked to them several times on the phone prior to the visit and they made me feel welcome. The area is great, the lake is beautiful and the trails/woods are cool to explore. My wife and son were sad to leave and actually missed the house when we got home. We all had a blast and will definitely be back again for an even longer stay.

My family spent a week in august at this lovely home by Loon Lake. The house was perfect for us. Ouf family took the upstairs bedrooms while the grandparents had their own bedroom and bathroom downstairs. The kitchen and outdoor bbq were everything I could want, and I like to cook! Plenty of great restaurants closrby for when we wanted to go out. The lake was crystal clear and warm, great swimming and fishing right off the dock. Good place to relax and enjoy the sunsets as the kids took that last swim before dinner. Great house, great family vacation, will definitely go back.
