  • CUTE LITTLE PROPERTY

    5/5

    THE HOUSE WAS KIND OF HARD TO GET TO, YOU HAVE TO WALK AROUND THE OWNERS DECK. BUT ONCE YOU DID, IT WAS A DELIGHT. THE HOUSE IS VERY CLEAN. VERY WELL MAINTAINED. VERY CLOSE TO THE WATER. WE REALLY ENJOYED OUR STAY, VERY QUIET AND SEREENE

    5/5

    Perfect property to sit back and enjoy the views. The lake is gorgeous. The home is well appointed and clean. We had a nice time watching the sun rise and disconnecting from the electronic devices.

    5/5

    Cute guest house behind the main property. The place was clean and the owner was very friendly. There is a pier, but you have to access it through the fence on site. The homes are close to each other with neighbors deck right next to the guest home. Not a problem as there is a blind to cover the window looking out onto the staircase to their deck. The family was very quiet as is the neighborhood. Property is located near a large lake. It was beautiful and a wonderful place to watch the sun come up. If you happen to be there when the Canton market is occurring, it is sooooo worth a drive over to go and see the worlds larges market. Property is a nice place for two adults. Remember, you do not have access to internet. You need to know how to use your cell phone as a wifi hotspot, otherwise there is no tv. Not a problem.

  • Anniversary trip

    2/5

    They property was nice and clean. My husband agreed to take this trip, because of the lake view, including it’s our anniversary. My husband loves his weekend sports. When we found that the cabin had no connection nor wifi. He wanted to turn around. They do have old movies to look at, but that keep stopping.. This is the first time ever this has happen that we didn’t have anything to watch.. The Cowboys had a blowout. He was so upset. We had a nice guy watching the place, and he would sit outside on the deck, so we never did sit out upon the deck. Otherwise it was clean. I usually clean and put away, but seems to me they wanted us to clean it back except make the beds, I paid for cleaning, of course remove bedding, because I bring my own, put dishes up, vacuum or I will be charged a few.. this place if for peps who love fishing I guess, I know it’s not for us. This is a review of an unhappy husband.

    Manager's Response:

    Hi Deanna, the right vacation home is everything, and we're disappointed if this wasn't the one for you. We followed up with the homeowner after reading your feedback, and they wanted to share the following:
    - We're surprised to see your review as our cleaners provide us with excellent service, consistently, and we have the cleaning fee in place to compensate them
    - The house rules are in line with industry standards regarding check-out
    - Additionally, there is information present on how to use cellular data to operate the various equipment inside the unit
    - The listing details, provided on all platforms and in the pre-stay email communications to each guest are clear and state that we do not have WiFi, due to the remote location
    - Our guest contact info is also present in the pre-stay email to each guest, so that if they have any questions or concerns, before or during a stay, we can address them urgently when we are made aware
    - We shall continue to ensure that each of our guests has a five-star experience, as we always do! Thank you

  • Peaceful stay
