  • The pet house


    The view of the lake is awesome, but the house lacked cleanliness when you first arrive the front porch railing leans to the right. Then when you open the door and walk in between the smell of pet dander and the bounce sheets is very overwhelming. Then you move into the kitchen and the stove was totally disgustingly dirty and the outside of the refrigerator was filthy the cupboards were not washed off were you open them. We were sitting on the couch watching TV we kept smelling dog food. My husband moved the couch and there was about a cup of dog food under the couch and a lot of dust and dog hair. The windows were filthy they had foot and nose prints on the patio doors. The moldings on the right patio door were shot and was very hard to open. I emailed the hostess and she said she would notify the cleaning team. From talking to the neighbors, the owners don't really care so for the money we paid for the rental for a week I think it should be cleaner than it was. So, if you have pets or no allergies from pets you would probably enjoy renting a pet house. Thats why I would give it a poor rating.

  • Mixed feelings


    The house was beautiful and well maintained. We were given a minimum of bath towels, hand towels and washcloths for the number of guests. We were a party of eight. There were no kitchen dish cloths and dishtowels and we had to purchase some in town to take care of dishes, pans that could not be done in the dishwasher. Also had to provide our own toilet paper and kleenex. The information provided said there was a teapot. There was no teapot but a tea kettle to heat water. A teapot is used to steep tea in hot water by the potful.

    Thankfully there was laundry equipment to wash towels as needed.

    The lake was beautiful but there are leeches even if you wear water foot gear.

    The weather was cool and rainy for all but 2 days but there was a wide range of activities in the area to keep all of us busy and entertained.

  • Nice Dam Lake Property


    Lots of good things to say about our stay here. Two large bedrooms on main level. Spacious enough for 2 portacribs for 2 year toddler and a 6 month old. Nice fire ring outside overlooking lake. Upstairs loft with 3 queen beds - only drawback was if people wanted to watch tv while others wanted to sleep. We rented pontoon boat with home - boat was nice and worked well for us. Not really a good place to swim near our dock but there was a nice sand bar area on the other side of the lake we visited several times. Unfinished basement had room for kids to run around if needed. Foosball and air hockey games in basement available- kinda old and not in best condition but functional . Big plus - internet work great.

  • Wonderful place to stay


    My family loved our stay at the Dam Lake Cottage! It was very easy to check in. The host was very responsive and very easy to communicate with! We rented the boat for the time we were there and it was very worth it. The cottage was so clean! We would definitely go back!
