  • cozy older lakeside home

    5/5

    While this home could easily accommodate a family of 10 or 12, we were only two, visiting over a long weekend during an unseasonably warm spell for mid-November. We enjoyed the hot tub after days spent hiking around the parks and lakeside trails. We did not get to experience this home during its high summer season, when kids would no diloubt spend hours diving into the lake off the fork, swinging from the rope swing or playing pool, foosball and ping pong later in the garage into the night. Amply stocked with spices and cooking oil, a gift basket of cookies and chips, and a well accessorized kitchen with pots, pans, utensils and knives, we enjoyed peaceful nights' rest, waking with the morning light and doing puzzles until we were ready for bed. We came to unplug and recharge, and that is what we did. But the two large TVs and decent 5 GHZ wifi are a bonus if keeping up on college football or answering email are your needs.

    Several of the window sills need to be replaced and we had to go find light bulbs for a couple of bedside lamps. Other than that our stay was wonderful and we hope to go back in the late Spring or early summer to enjoy all the lake has to offer -- boating, fishing, swimming, and hawk watching... We must have seen two dozen hawks in the sky at one point, sitting down by the lake in the wooden swing around 5 pm, watching the sun descend and the golden light turn purple and fade into blackest night.

  • Great place to stay on the lake

    5/5

    We have gone to this property 5 years in a row and we have enjoyed every time the family stayed there. It has great location and everything you need.

    We will go back next year.

  • My trip was still fantastic but the house not so much.

    2/5

    Two biggest complaints: there was no WiFi and the air conditioning vent in the downstairs bathroom leaked so bad we had to use all the towels and eventually a large pot to keep the floor dry. Communication via guest contact was useless. I emailed the first time at 6pm on Thursday, and it’s Sunday and I’ve still not gotten a response. There are plenty of other things that can be said about this listing both good and bad: the view is amazing. The outdoor seating areas were fantastic. And the hot tub worked great for us. But I would not book this listing again.

  • Will NEVER stay here again! No words!

    1/5

    I definitely do not and would not ever suggest booking this rental! The photos are so misleading. Whoever took them understood the assignment! The house is really small. There is no way to sit at the table and allow people to be able to pass to the kitchen or front door. There is a funny smell that is trying to be covered by air freshener. The upstairs bathroom was moldy. The floors creaked very loudly. The carpet in bunk bed room was nasty. The stairs were difficult to walk up and down and the hand rail was too high. The bathroom downstairs was awkward with a cutout step up for the door. The furniture was in poor condition. Mattress was very very very firm. It was impossible to sleep downstairs with all the creaking from the beds upstairs and the floor sounding like it was fixing to fall through. The hot tub, which was one of the reasons we chose this property, would not heat up above 87 degrees. You could not enjoy sitting or fishing on the dock because there was a little row boat that was full of water and was actually causing the middle of the dock to dip down in the middle. The pool table and other games and doll houses are outside in the garage that only has a standup propane heater and no real seating. The dishes due to not having a water softener system had a white cloudy build up on them. There were no trash bags. In the checking in instructions it said the key was in a lockbox by the front door and what the code was when in actuality it was a keypad door lock, so we had spent 5-10 minutes looking for the lock box. There were several other things but this review is long enough. This was supposed to be a relaxing getaway weekend at the lake, but it ended up being a huge let down and left even more tired than when we arrived. It was definitely not worth the price that we paid.

    Manager's Response:

    Hi Brandi, we’re sorry to hear your stay did not meet your expectations. We followed up with the homeowner after reading your feedback, and they wanted to share the following:
    -The home is professionally photographed to ensure that it is accurately depicted in the listing photos and our listing was exactly as shown in the pictures you relied upon for your booking., but we're sorry if this caught you off guard
    -We take pride in ensuring our home is serviced professionally before each guest. We have high standards for our property to ensure it is thoroughly cleaned and prepared after each guest. We sincerely apologize if any cleanliness issues impacted your stay. We wish you had reached out to the Guest Contact during your stay if there were any issues you needed to be addressed. We would have done everything we could to resolve them immediately but were not given the opportunity to. We have passed this along to the cleaning crew to ensure that our home is in perfect shape for future travelers
    -We strive to provide all of our guests with a 5-star experience. We will work to improve our consistency in cleanliness as this is a top concern of ours. Unfortunately, the carpet had been damaged by previous guests. We will be closing the property for spring cleaning this March and April to ensure our high standards are being met and exceeded
    -While we want our guests to enjoy their stay here, we also need them to respect our house rules and treat the property as their own. We were disappointed to find the furniture was moved around. Unfortunately, we had to spend extra time to get the home ready for the next guests
    We appreciate your feedback, and we are confident that future guests will continue to enjoy five-star stays here!
