  • Room for Improvement


    While the view is beautiful and we overall enjoyed the stay, it could have been cleaner. I was disappointed with the condition of the bathroom and lack of towels. There was also no way to control the temperature. Also, no "toaster oven" as listed but rather just a toaster, which makes a huge difference when you buy food to heat in a toaster oven. The property is located on a beautiful lake and could be wonderful if some of the money charged for the stay is put back in to the little things.

  • Great location and host!


    Frank was a great host. The central location on the lake is hard to beat. Would highly recommend staying here.

    Perfect weather, very comfy accomodations, yard is like a park and secluded. Second stay here. Host is great. Fished off dock many times, played board games and just enjoyed the porch and ambiance.

  • Short stay. Rash.


    We stayed one night only because there was no stove to prepare meals on site. Otherwise the property is OK.We sat on the dock and dangled legs in the water to about mid shin for 15 minutes. We both have rashes up to mid shin, still being treated a week later. SML is completely saturated with the algae bloom and is dangerous for any use anywhere.. Be warned.

    Hi Wayne, we take guest feedback seriously and passed your comments on to the homeowner who would like to share the following:
    We are glad you chose our home and we apologize for any inconvenience you experienced during your stay. The listing does state that there is no full kitchen and no stove, but we are sorry if this caught you off guard. We encourage guests to thoroughly review the listing before booking, to ensure they find the perfect vacation home for their needs. We have never experienced issues with the lake and it does not have any algae. Additionally, entering a public body of water is always at your own risk.
    We do all we can to make our homes the best possible stays, and we look forward to this property hosting many satisfied guests. Thank you for your feedback!
