This house met all of my families needs, as well as my 11 other friends that joined us for the weekend! The kitchen and dining areas were spacious. The water access was perfect for fishing, wading, and swimming! The fire pit, grill, and hot tub were great entertainment for us after the kids went to bed. The only few things I would suggest might be to bring a portable fan for the loft, as it was quite warm upstairs, while the people in the basement were cold at night. The kitchen utensils and accessories could use quite an improvement. It was hard to find things that we needed. The kitchen was very disorganized and so much clutter in the cabinets that was a waste of space. If we had stayed there longer, I might have completely emptied the kitchen and rearranged it. There was no where to store our food, therefore, it had to sit out on the counter, which was more of an inconvenience than anything. No big deal, just a few minor things I would suggest for the owner to consider. Drain stoppers for the bath tubs would have been nice, since we had small children needing baths. The water did smell, like a previous review stated and there were some bugs here and there, but we expected that in a lake house. We also brought a mattress pad for the queen bed that got bad reviews. Thank goodness we did because that bed was hard! Overall the house was large and great for us. The dock was beautiful and we really enjoyed our time there.
