My sister's family (6) and mine (3) stayed here for a week. We have a 1 year old girl, so she slept in a pack n play we brought. Everyone else had appropriate bedding. My family stayed in the master. That room is HUGE!!!! And the bed is very relaxing. The kids stayed in the bunk bed room and said they were comfortable in their beds. My sister and her husband stayed downstairs in the bed with the queen. She said it wasn't the most comfortable mattress, but it wasn't bad either. So let's go with an average bed.
That is probably the worst thing I can say about this place. Getting away from NY for a week, this place was spacious and relaxing. We loved playing pool downstairs and took advantage of the board games (located in the chest in the master). We had one rainy day that we were "stuck" in the house. We did not feel crammed one bit.
There is no need to bring anything to cook with (pots/pans/plates/utensils/etc). Mike has the place well-stocked. I went nuts looking for a cutting board. After 24 hours I was close to going to the store to buy the house. Then, in the bottom cabinet by the fridge, hiding on the front wall by the door hinge...EUREKA! There were two. I was thrilled everyone could stop looking at me like I was crazy.
The bathrooms are spacious and the showers have great water pressure.
The outside of the house has a very large deck with a grill (Weber/propane). We were a bit surprised to learn that there was no fire pit in the yard. We would've loved to have a little campfire while we roasted some marshmallows or something like that. Not a huge deal, but we would've enjoyed that.
The beach is about a five minute walk away. We did not assume that this house was located right on the lake, so we were not disappointed when we arrived. We actually enjoyed the quiet walks down. We got to talk to some of the neighbors as well and they were quite friendly. The beach itself was very quiet and relaxing. The water was beautiful, temperature and clarity. We met a few more people down there and they too were very kind. We spent many days of our vacation just lounging around on the beach. Mike even provides you with your own rowboat and kayak. So we definitely put those to use!
Mike was easy to work with. He was very kind and informative. Not just of the house and lake, but also informative of the surrounding areas. We will definitely recommend the Lake House to anyone reading this. It was quite depressing leaving after our week's stay. THANKS MIKE!
