Overall this was an OK property. It does have retro feel to it which was cool but the place could use some updates like showers for a starter. On a pretty busy highway and pretty much in town but that is more on me than the owners. Nice pool table. Pier really needs an overall as it sways when walking on it. Had 3 to 4 deer stop in yard nightly which was great. Caught a few fish but would suggest a boat if you go there. The pizza at the neighboring Jailhouse saloon is over rated. Just throwing a lot of cheese on it doesn't make it great.
The property was clean. The quirkiness was fine but the house needed updating. The primary bathroom needs to be updated. The carpet needs to be replaced. The light hanging in the kitchen with an extension cord can’t be to code..?The “3rd bedroom” does not have its own entrance-you have to enter through another bedroom. That’s not explained anywhere. The outdoor rails are very shoddy. We were way overcharged for what we got.

Hi Dana, we’re sorry to hear your stay did not meet your expectations. We followed up with the homeowner after reading your feedback, and they wanted to share the following:
- This historic house, built in 1909, once served as the Pine Lake Inn in the 1920s through the 1960s when it transformed into Dick & Dolly's renowned supper club. We have diligently preserved and accentuated its Mid-Century Modern interior, which may not appeal to everyone's taste.
- It's important to note that we market it as Mid-Century Modern, signifying its vintage character rather than a modern design. We use professional photographers so we can be sure that our images accurately reflect each property and guests can decide before booking if the décor meets their expectations.
- We successfully passed our annual inspection by Oneida County, most recently in June 2023. The mentioned light fixture, dating back to the 1960s and imported from Austria, meets all relevant codes. Additionally, the choice of carpeting in the bedrooms is intentional, as it provides extra warmth during the harsh winters of the North Woods region.
- We're currently updating our listing description to ensure clarity regarding the bedroom layout. Please note that the third bedroom is accessed via the second bedroom. A sliding door between the two rooms provides for total privacy. The railings in question were installed in November 2020 when we purchased the house. They've been inspected and do not require replacement at this time.
Thanks for your valuable feedback as we continue to improve for future guests!
