We had a lovely time in a lovely home. Our entire family enjoyed it and it fit our needs perfectly. The pool table, electronic darts and Pac Man in the lower level were definitely enjoyed! Lots of fun, beautiful home, great views; a memory making weekend for all of us. Thank you! – Mary W, Burlington WI
We’ve been renting from CK for the past 7 years staying at 6 different houses. Although we enjoyed and felt comfortable at each house, Sunset Bay was our FAVORITE and we plan on staying again next year. The house is in a great location, close to the big lake, is well laid out, accommodates families with 3 levels of living, a fantastic game room and wet bar and has all the necessary accouterments needed for an enjoyable stay. Also, it is close to stores, marina and places to get a cool drink. The end of a fun enjoyable day is sitting at the outside fire-pit, roasting marshmallows, drinking cold beverages and watching the sunset over the lake. – Bill & Joan P, Naperville IL
There’s actually room for 14 here, with 3 king beds and sleeping on all 3 levels – with ample room for 6 kids on the loft level. The lower level, with the game table (free, with about 48 games on it), the professional dart board game, pool table, bar (with frig) & big TV was GREAT… While we expected a TV on the main level, having one in the loft (kids DVDs) and one in the rec room (sports) worked out well. Visit Splash bar/restaurant right across the bay for good casual dining. I’d recommend this place, as it offers great value for the money. The sunsets ARE spectacular as well – Mink52, Waukesha, Wisconsin
