  • Lake house stay

    1/5

    Upon arrival AT check in time, “her husband “ was still mowing the lawn…. Which left loose grass all over the entryway to be immediately tracked inside and of course the yard was full of loose grass. Considering the draw was water front, you spend a lot of time outside and each time anyone went into the house tracked in said grass. And you are expected ti leave the place EXACTLY as you found it. Then there’s the absolutely filthy windows overlooking the lake. Out of the two sliding glass doors downstairs, the one that they didn’t have blocked by a couch has no handle at all. Tissue stock in the handle holes. As for sleeping arrangements, GOOD LUCK! The room with the bunk beds was an afterthought, it is tucked in behind the laundry and you will need to search to find it. No windows and no lighting at all. The master suite was acceptable but the one other bedroom upstairs, the bed was so hard you are best to sleep on the floor. Two bedrooms downstairs are equal to sleeping on a foam mattress cover. You will need exceptional night vision, must lights throughout the entire house do not work, seriously! Recliners are broken and lean to the right……. Sofa table is broken and barely standing. Dining table, a total joke!!! You are accommodated by two captains chairs that are broken and lean whichever direction you choose. The rest of the chairs are hard plastic some type of chair! It is dirty and ridiculously dated and not properly cared for.

  • Space for all!

    4/5

    Our family had a great stay at this retro get away for labor day weekend. There was more than enough room for all of us. We were all able to have our own room/space to sleep. The property manager was quick to respond with any questions we had and let us in as soon as we arrived. The house it self could use some updating but overall no complaints! The yard was well kept and the shallow water in front of the break wall was soft and sandy. We enjoyed a fire each night down by the water. Would absolutely recommend this property to other large parties or families that love the lake life.

  • Fantastic Trip!

    5/5

    The property is very accurately described...VERY spacious retro retreat. Absolutely gorgeous view and the home was absolutely perfect for our large group ranging in age from 6 - 68, including teens and 20 somethings as well as a few in their 40's. Main floor was perfect for me (the 68 yr old) as I have some mobility issues so everything I needed was available to me on the main floor. We had one rain day but it didn't spoil our day as both the upper and lower levels have covered patio and balcony space so we were still outside all day. A slight hill to get to the steps to the water were easy for me to navigate as well. We enjoyed the fire pit on several of the nights. One delicious meal prepared on the grill that is provided. Saturday night was delicious pizza from Twisted Sisters Pizza and several stores very close allowed us to replenish things like milk, eggs, cream, etc.

    The property is a work in progress but I highly recommend it.

  • We enjoyed having the outdoor space for 4 families.

    5/5

    We enjoyed having the outdoor space for 4 families. Our kids had space to float near the dock and the kids were all able to touch because the water was shallow. The fire pit and grill were also very nice. Although there is no air conditioning it was pretty cool at night and we were done without it. The rooms were all decent besides the bunkroom which had less than ideal mattresses and was very damp. But for the space and lake front stay we made it all work and was within our budget
