    Stayed there last year we really appreciated the updates to the property. Looks like it’s heading in the right direction.

  • Great place off the beaten path (for anglers or family vaction)


    Stay at many places over the years at Lake Shelbyville as we have an annual spring fishing trip. Overall worked out perfect and very nice place to come back to after a good days fishing. It appears there are some renovations happening on the outside of the property (deck areas) so the four seasons area was not available. The back deck and lower paver patio could use some refreshing. That would be the 4 ratings for cleanliness and accuracy as otherwise the amenities/accommodations inside the home were good. Would stay again.

  • Weekend Getaway


    The home and property overall was in a great location. The walk-in the door appearance was really cute, but the shower in the master bedroom had a good layer of mold in the door area that would separate and fall into the floor of the shower as you used the shower. The kitchen was clean other than below the sink, it smelled very much like musty, moldy wood. The rest of the house down stairs we did not use at all. The living room was set up really cute and the deck would have been nice if it had seats to sit on. There was a seat with no cushions up there, the grill could not be used as the racks were rusted on both the charcoal grill and the gas grill, so we couldn’t use those. The below deck was not to be used because it was not safe due to needing repaired. Signs were up to identify this though. I would come back here to stay because of the convenience but I would not advertise the comfy fire place with seating that wasn’t there. grill to cook on that was rusty, or charge so much for cleaning if the showers are still going to have mold clearly on the floor base, and the utensils you cook with sticky with cooking residue from prior use. I was just upset with the price for having to clean or improvise how to cook things since we brought food to cook on the grill. I brought my own toilet paper and paper towels to use primarily while we were there. Swept the floor with broom provided but there was no dust pan to sweep the stuff into so we folded a piece of cardboard to use.

  • Beautiful Inside


    Inside the house was beautiful! There’s no screens on the windows to let in fresh air and the pots & pans need to be replaced.

    The below deck has cation tape and the grill picture is not what looks like. After cleaning the grill, I still did not want to use it. I had to sweep the fire pit area due to screws and metal pieces around and in the pit. I would Not feel comfortable if I had some children with me!

    Once the outside is cleaned up and fixed, this would be a great vacation spot.

  • Family Thanksgiving


    We booked this to come up and see my family for Thanksgiving. It made for a great visit as we had enough room for everyone to come eat and visit for the day.

    Would book again. Only complaint would be the internet service.
