    This home has great potential with the lot and the lake front but that is where it stops. The home is NOT ready for renting. The air conditioner is small and most of the upstairs bedrooms and a downstairs bedroom are not air conditioned, although advertised as such. The smoke alarm battery compartments are hanging open and not sure they are even functioning. The outside and inside of the home need a thorough cleaning. The entire outside is dead insect crusted and porches and decks littered with cobwebs and debris. There are cobwebs inside and the refrigerator needs a good cleaning. Many of the outlets didn’t work and others were loose which gave us little confidence in the wiring. The threshold to the main deck was unfinished leaving sharp metal and wood exposed to step on. There was a third floor door to the roof that neither latched nor locked which was worrisome with 3 five year olds. There are serious issues that need to be addressed before renting.

  • Great view of the lake, with potential. Work to do.


    First time on VRBO, but experienced renter.

    Positives: the view, the check-in process and owner communication all were as good as you could ask for.

    Needs work:

    General cleanliness - the blue chairs in around the kitchen table were stained to the point people avoided sitting in them. The exterior desperately needs a pressure wash.

    Master bedroom - great view and a recent update, but the bed literally broke when I sat on it and there is nothing else in the room - no end tables, no luggage racks. Everything you have will go on the floor.

    Details - the wi-fi password in the check-in instructions was wrong (case sensitive issue), the smoke detector in the living room appears non-functioning (battery door open and empty). The stove is awkwardly pulled away from the cabinets in a way that is clear it does not fit right. Controlling the temperature upstairs (except the master bedroom) is a challenge.
