The Grove Getaway was est. in 2020. Come enjoy year-round lake life with waterfront firepit, tree swing, hammock, and dock plus 3 rooms, 2 baths, and 2 comfy spaces.

A beautiful living & kitchen reno with gorgeous lake views wins guests over on arrival. A gas fireplace warms up the family room and a tankless water heater keeps bathing HOT! WIFI, a ROKU TV, keyboard, karaoke machine, board games & toys all keep guests entertained.

Contact us for more flexible Covid cancelation options.

The space
Our occupancy is set based on individual adults willing to share a room, but not beds. 10 people includes 3 adults on twin floor, and 7 on queen beds (4 of them bunks)

We have 4 young kids, so we will work with larger family groups trying to have space for littles. Don't hesitate to message us about your sleeping needs or to inquire about increased occupancy.

The first floor bunk room has two queen over queen bunks and a view of the lake. Guests have access to one closet. The quaint main floor bathroom features a walk-in shower.

Upstairs, the spacious two queen room is adjacent to a charming full bathroom with shower and tub.

In the basement, guests find laundry and another sleeping area with walkout access to the lake. It is a bit cooler in the winter, so basement guests have their own electric fireplace. This room has a blackout curtain where we plan to add a sliding door by fall 2021.

All rooms have space for air mattresses or pack'n'plays if you need that for family and more flexible sleeping configurations.

We use the attached garage as a hangout room with a futton, twin floor mattress, sofa, and rockers (not counted as beds in our occupancy), soft rugs, and an extra fridge. This is NOT temperature controlled. We leave the door open between the two spaces and make use of provided space heaters/fans as needed. Below freezing this room is not workable, and guests should not plan on it for Feb/Jan. winter. It is lovely all summer.

On the driveway side, we have a huge playground and playhouse in a field. We also have a gas grill and smoker under the eaves of the shed.

The cleaning fee covers the whole house covid deep clean, exterior patio and dock and playground.

Guest access
You are welcome to the privacy and spaciousness of the whole house, yard, and dock. Inside we have about 5 smaller storage spaces that are zip-tied and one rack in the upstairs walk-in closet that holds our family's clothes. There is a large detached shed on the property that is not for guest use.

We want to be upfront that this is first and foremost our home where we spend many days/weekends making memories. Over the past 4 months, we have poured our love and energy into bringing it to the charming feel it has now, AND we also have many plans for future improvements. The Getaway has a few quirks that we are continuing to address from both a maintenance and a guest experience point of view. (Ex: don't overfill the bathtub or there's a leak in the basement!--These issues should be addressed by February 2021)

Also note, if you are interested in bringing a pet contact me before booking. We have 3 family members with severe allergies, so we have special instructions and are limited on what types of animals can come.

So in staying at the Grove Getaway in the 2020-2021 season, you will have a clean and joyful stay, full of amenities and plenty of space to work and play with restful views and fantastic outside space. New lighting is being installed January-February 2021. If you notice that the exterior needs a powerwash come springtime or see those other imperfections, then we hope they bring a glimmer of excitement to your eye knowing that the Grove Getaway is in the midst of transformation.

A more personalized Cancellation Policy:
Airbnb offers only 3 levels of cancellation policies for hosts to choose from. During unprecedented times, we want to ensure that our airbnb is viable, but let you know that we will work with you.

Specifically, our modification to the "STRICT" policy you are agreeing to with this booking is that we will offer a full refund up until ONE MONTH before your booking date (as opposed to a full refund for only 48 hours after making a reservation).

Other things to note
We love our lake but recognize that "With great fun comes great responsibility!"

We are very serious that all children who can not swim need to be wearing life jackets when playing in the yard--even when it's cold outside.

If adults are going to let kids play on the playground equipment in the field far from the lake unsupervised, the non-swimmers should have life jackets on up there as well. This is what we do for our 2 non-swimmers, and I can't tell you how many times in 4 months it has already been relevant.

Life jackets are provided in the garage hangout room.

The Lake is deep and dark and if a kid goes in you won't even see where they went.

When anyone in your group is swimming in the lake they need to be wearing a life jacket. Grown Ups included.

For every 6 kids there needs to be at least one completely sober adult when children are swimming.

Additionally we have provided up high locks To help make sure little's don't wander off when you don't want them to.

Location

2, Kansas, United States

There is a Marina about 5 minutes away that lets you rent kayaks and pontoons.

The public boat ramp is visible from our dock, so if you rent or bring your own water craft, getting to our cabin by water is super easy.

We have a lilly pad (in summer), plus a canoe and 3 paddle boards as well.

Our neighbors to the North (our left looking at the lake) are permanent residents who appreciate warm smiles and privacy. We hope that you'll be conscious and respectful that this is their year round home.

Our neighbors to our right are a retired couple. WE SHARE DRIVEWAY ACCESS. Closer to the road there is a break in the pine trees. This is where they access their home. Please do not block that opening in the pines with a camper or trail.

We are on a septic system. Please do not drive or park on the drainage field demarcated with parking barriers..between the playground and shed.

If you bring your own boat you're welcome to put the trailer in the public access area up by the playground or just across the little gravel road. You can just kind of look around and see how other people have done theirs.
