    There were good & not so good things about the property. Great neighborhood & layout of the house was good for our needs. We were delighted to see a young black bear out back the first night! Kitchen was adequate & there were plenty of pots/pans, etc. Sadly, there were some disappointments. In 2 bedrooms, there were free standing AC units that had hoses out the window for venting. The hoses were taped to a board that was attached to the windowsill with duct tape. (not on pictures) Duct tape did not hold up well & was constantly falling apart allowing insects to enter. The one in the bunkroom scared the children when it fell apart. (we retaped it twice) The side of the AC unit in the upstairs king room was broken leaving a gaping hole where all manner of critters could enter. Bathrooms & linens were clean, but the mantel & other surfaces were dust covered, & dirt/dust under the furniture. Fridge had yellowish substance on several shelves, dish drainer had sticky goo, crumbs & dirt in cupboards/drawers, & cobwebs in the corners of the windows. Porch was filthy. We noted several exposed junction boxes, missing bulbs, & non-working interior & exterior lighting. Upstairs railing is too wide to be safe for kids. The whole place needs a deep clean and a handyman. (we discovered AFTER arriving that WE were expected to wipe all surfaces & sweep floors before we left - AND pay the large cleaning fee!) Lake & playground were great! Could be really nice if kept up and cleaned.

  • Great time


    My family and I had a wonderful time. The house was clean. Truly stocked with anything and everything you will need. Secluded enough but not isolating. Cozy and spacious. We didn’t want to leave! A great break from the city.
