  • Lovely lake house


    Our family of five enjoyed a 6 day stay in late July at this fun and funky A-frame. The online description is very accurate. There are no linens or towels of any kind, so BYO. Washer and dryer are brand new. The mattress in the attic is actually now a normal full size, not an air mattress, and the space up there is cute for kids. We cooked several full meals and found the kitchen had all the necessities. One couch is not very comfortable, but the other is very nice. TV wifi options were fine. Some beach chairs/noodles and kid games available. Would stay again.

  • Great location


    We loved the lake access with this house, there's no dock but there is a little sandy area that the kids loved using and you can walk out really far before it gets deep. We brought our kayaks and had a great time outside. The inside was very sparse, there was 1 chair and 2 uncomfortable couches, the beds were fine and the hot tub was very nice. We only stayed for 2 nights so it was fine but for a longer stay I would prefer a place that was a little easier to live in. We rent 3 or 4 times a year in the area for vacations and this was lacking a little. The previous guests had not cleaned up so there was some glass and fireworks in the yard, not the homeowners fault but be aware if you have little ones in the yard that no one checks it before you arrive.

  • Needs some work


    Nice location and view of the lake, but needs some work. Beds & furniture very uncomfortable. Electrical outlets: one side worked the other did not. Septic system (?) very noisy.

  • Great view and location


    We enjoyed the lake view and location. We had the opportunity to use the BBQ grill and fireplace. There was a glitch with the water boiler on the first night and we didn't have hot water for a few hours, but we called the landlord and were able to get it resolved. The wifi is somewhat spotty and the cellar bathroom light stopped working midway through our stay, but not a deal breaker since we really enjoyed our stay.

  • Unique place and gorgeous views


    The stay was in a great location and very unique setting. Only difficulty was figuring out the heat. Spent a couple hours trying to get the heat past 55. Once I fixed it all was well. Wifi was subpar. But those are minor and overall stay was great
