New Review by Julian S 09/06/2019
This was our third year at this particular cottage and we are looking forward to another year
The cottage was impeccable by Kathy D 09/06/2019
Our time at Open Invitation was a dream come true. It’s not easy to find a place that can house 18 family members but at Open Invitation we had room to spare! Beautiful home set on a gorgeous lot. So many amenities for children we were blown away - our children ranged in age from 2-18 and this property kept all of the children busy and happy!
This was a phenomenal rental experience - thank you! by Gillian R 09/06/2019
Great first, second and third impression!
Open Invitation was the perfect, family-friendly getaway for 4 families. The space for kids to play, the options of things to play with and do, the lake, the comfort and amenities in the house made this a 5-star experience. Incredibly appreciative of the opportunity to rent this beautiful cottage.
Water trampoline and boat rental - very satisfied, was a seamless, EASY experience.
New Review by Julian 08/15/2018
This is our second summer at this cottage and we had a great time and hope to be back next July!
