The Ark is such a wonderful place! We were able to fit 35 ladies very comfortably for our church retreat. Many of our women have never left the city and marveled at the beauty of the grounds, lake and home. Introverts were able to find many quiet spaces to recharge and extroverts enjoyed the large gathering places in the kitchen, main room and outside play areas. The kitchen was well stocked and it was easy to serve our group. The beds were so comfortable and many bathrooms made it easy for the ladies to feel at home. Some even made it into the hot tub in January! It was spotless clean too. Jeff is super easy to work with and responded to email and text very quickly. His house guidebook made it easy to find information about how to navigate the house (sound system, media room, trash, etc). We are looking forward to our next time at the Ark!!!
We came with a group of approximately 30 people and could have easily had more. The home is perfect for having space for everyone to be together, but also has spaces for folks to spread out and be in smaller groups or even alone. It was cold while we were there so we didn't take advantage of the lake, but the house offered so many different things to do, that we didn't even notice. This is a wonderful home!
This place is amazing and we love coming here! Every single thing is wonderful and the place is beautiful and so amazing for large gatherings!
This property has so much room for a large group that they never feel cramped! The owners have supplied everything that anyone may need while they are staying at The Ark from kitchen utensils to any of the outdoor space activities to books and board games. Those seeking to host a large corporate retreat, church retreat, family gathering, or wedding would be well served by this property.
The home is super incredible with great fashion taste. There was not a single chair, recliner, etc. that was uncomfortable. There is a sense of style and luxury at every turn. The in-home theater was exquisite and enjoyable. The kitchen had everything you needed to cook up your favorite meal. We had a lot of fun in the great room watching football and playing billiards and ping pong. What a great weekend. I would recommend this home to anyone looking for a great place to have a family reunion or any other large event.
