My wife and I were looking to take our 2 4-year old daughters on a family trip where we could unwind from the stresses of city life and enjoy fun outdoor activities at our own pace, this home delivered on all of that and more. We've rented houses before but there are many things that set this property apart:
-it is clean and well maintained--pots and pans, towels, sheets, plates, etc are of much nicer quality than what we've seen in other rentals; appliances are new, the board games actually have all of the pieces, furniture is in great shape as are the boats, life jackets, deck furniture, etc. While I'm sure many people have enjoyed staying at this cabin it does not have any "wear and tear" that we've seen of other rentals.
-While the footprint of the house is compact there was more than enough room for our family of 4 without us all feeling like we were on top of one another (and we spent most of our time enjoying the deck, the dock and the outdoor activities anyway).
-The house is situated in close proximity to the pool, the beach and local restaurants and shops; and there is plenty of helpful information and suggestions for both fun and essentials (like garbage drop off, emergency contacts, etc.)
-the walk down to the water was completely manageable for our young daughters and the location of the house is on a wake free zone of the lake so there were no loud boats or water vehicles speeding past at any time.
All communications with the owner were smooth and efficient with lots of helpful information and instructions for everything one could need while staying there.
