My extended family rented this property for a long weekend in October. The house is nice and most of it is newly renovated. The open-concept kitchen, dining, and living areas are spacious and provide enough room for 6 adults to easily co-exist. Both of the new bedrooms on the far side each sleep 2 (one has two twins and the other a nice twin bunk). The master bedroom is a good size but the master bath is small and needs to be renovated. The other bathroom is right next to the master bedroom - off the kitchen - and has been nicely renovated. It was a big enough space for the rest of us to keep our toiletries there (a row of eight towel hooks came in very handy) but the set-up felt a little weird. I just didn't like the feeling of walking through the living room and kitchen to take a shower. Personally I would add a full bath to the new wing and/or downstairs. However, it all worked fine for us and it's not a big enough issue to keep me from renting here again.
I was the one who got to sleep downstairs. The room is huge and there are two bunkbeds. It would be great if there was a TV (looks like the cable hookups are there already) and a couch or place to sit other than the bottom bunk. The space would be a great playroom for kids. As there was no place to sit the only time I spent downstairs was when I went to bed. Besides the lack of furnishings, my only complaint is that the two bunkbeds were pushed together so closely that I couldn't access the outlet by the headboard and therefore couldn't plug in a light to read.
The patio area is nice with comfy furniture and fire pit. The lake front is a short walk down the hill. The property has a nice sandy beach area with a tire swing, toys, and a couple of kayaks. The beach abuts the beach and boathouse for a condo complex so I'm curious how busy it is during the summer. For our October weekend there was hardly anybody else around. We had two dogs and it was nice to have the long leads available.
The owner was easy to deal with and responsive to the one problem we had. We arrived to find that the cleaners hadn't finished doing the laundry so the beds weren't made and there were no clean towels...laundry and beds aren't exactly the things you want to worry about when on vacation. The owner refunded the cleaning fee without issue.
I would definitely stay here again and am a little sad that the property isn't available in the winter for a ski weekend!
