Overall our stay was a positive one. The property is a very nice size considering the cost of rental for a week. We had 6 adults and two children stay there and never felt cramped or lacking for space. The owner was very easy to work with throughout the entire process and his brother, who is the caretaker, was also very accommodating and available,
We chose this property because it was on the lake and we wanted something a little off the beaten path, which it is. Keep in mind though, that it's on top of a hill and you have a long way down many steps to get to the water. This wasn't a problem for us, but I just wanted to note it for anyone reading. The dock was disconnected from the steps, but we were able to get it back into place enough to make it useable, although the water was over the bottom few steps, so you got wet feet accessing the dock. Also not a problem for us, but some folks may take issue with the dock situation.
I saw that some other reviewers questioned the cleanliness of the house. We did not see any mouse droppings, but I will say that if you're looking for a pristine rental, this one may not be for you. While it was clean and in reasonable condition I would consider this more like staying at a relatives house than staying at a high end rental, like others I've been at in the past. Window sills needed cleaning, and there were spider webs here and there, especially on the outside of the windows and in the screens. Nothing horrible but not the cleanest I've seen by far.
My biggest complaint would be the cookware. If you plan on doing any cooking with a skillet, bring your own cookware. The skillets are cheap and paper thin, and we struggled to make a decent pancake with what they had there. Other than that the kitchen is well stocked with the other cooking utensils and serving items.
I saw someone mention the poor condition of the decks and I have no idea what they're talking about. We spent a lot of time on the decks and they are all safe and pleasant to use. Our kids played out there daily.
We enjoyed this property and the surrounding area very much. I would recommend this property with the readers understanding that it is a lived in and used home, and don't go into it thinking you're getting "Ritz Carleton" level accommodations. For the price it's well worth it.
