My family and I had a wonderful time here, Loved all the entertainment and comfort of this house, Barry is very accomodateing to your needs and replies fast.
Barry generously donated a weekend getaway at one of his homes to a fundraiser for JeffHOPE I was lucky enough to win and used the weekend as a reunion weekend with friends. We had the most amazing time!! The house was spacious and there was plenty to do! We were able to sleep 8 and had more room! The kitchen was stocked with pots and pans and we made a great dinner after spending the day playing pool and ping pong. The hot tub was in great condition.
Could not have asked for a better house to spend time with friends!!
We wanted to get away as an extended family for a few days. We had three couples with 6 younger children among us, plus their grandparents. There was plenty of room for all of us to spread out and enjoy ourselves. The kids loved the game room with air hockey, pool table (huge air hockey table got lots of use!) and the hot tub (the hot tub is accessible right outside of the game room, which was very convenient!) The kids also loved the paved driveway for playing kickball, four square, sidewalk chalk, and riding their bikes. Getting to the park at Split Rock was just a short drive (less than a mile) drive and we played more kickball and wiffleball on the field and played on the playground. We were able to find discount tickets online to the H2O indoor water park (which was also just a mile away!).
The adults loved the additional fridge in the kitchenette downstairs to store our beverages so it left plenty of room for our groceries upstairs in the kitchen. The laundry room got lots of use, and it was so nice to go home without tons of laundry to do! The tvs were nice for winding down in the evenings, especially the huge one in the game room. We put a movie on for the kids and they loved it.
The set up of the living room, dining area, and kitchen made it nice because we could all prepare meals and eat near one another, play table games, but then spread out to other parts of the house at other times. We would have loved to use the grill and deck area, but we just ran out of time!
The best part of Elk House would definitely be Barry, the owner. We had a zillion questions for him beforehand to make sure the accommodations would be right for us, and he returned our emails within minutes and was very informative about the features of the home and nearby places of interest.
We will definitely be back to Elk House again!
