  • Concrete bed, hair, dust and dirty windows. But quiet and remote.


    The house outside was great, kids loved the paddle boats and pool. It’s nice and quiet and the host who checked us in was fantastic.


    remote without being isolated.


    Paddle boats


    Lightning bugs to catch


    Really needs to be better cleaned

    Hair in the tubs and showers

    Glass is filthy everywhere in the house, windows, showers tables etc. it all had smear smudges handprints.

    No floor mat in bathrooms

    BEDS ARE BASICALLY CONCRETE we left a day early bc no one could sleep. We slept on recliners and couches and I shared the air mattress with my two little ones. Gymnastics mats would be softer then the mattress if we were staying for any length of time, I would’ve had to go to the store and bought toppers

    We stayed for 2 nights supposed to be 3 but we just wanted to leave after the second night of barley sleeping.

    It wasn’t horrible but for the high cleaning fee I shouldn’t have needed to go buy cleaner to clean the tub before my kids bathed. There’s dish soap a brooom and Clorox that’s it. There was zero extra anything, not even dish towels or silverware. The house literally looks like someone moved out and whatever they left behind is what is there decorations kitchen things. It looks like it was purchased as is and then rented out. There was a quarter roll of paper towels. It looks like it was left from the previous renters. There wasn’t even one extra roll. We ended up using bath towels to dry dishes since there wasn’t even one kitchen towel available.

  • Family vacation


    Overall my family and I enjoyed our stay! We loved the privacy of not being surrounded by neighboring houses,as well as the private lake. The house was the perfect size for my family and was exactly as described. The only thing we recommend is TVs in the rooms. Other than that we would definitely book again in the future.

    The property itself is beautiful! However, the inside of the home needed a good cleaning from top to bottom, the Kitchen supplies were limited-lacked the basics, a couple of the beds were extremely hard, had to purchase mattress toppers. Saving the best for last-the host was the best ever, my grandkids loved fishing, swimming and exploring on the walking trails. Even with the unpleasantries, we would stay there again! I repeat, the host was AWESOME!

  • In the woods getaway


    The kids loved roaming the woods. They also enjoyed fishing in the creek and pond. It was nice to get a way from normal live and relax.
