3 - not 4 - bedroom house
It's been 4+ months since we rented this "4 bedroom" place, but when we did it, only had 3 bedrooms. The upstairs room runs the length of the house and had 4 beds in it (2 with matresses, 2 with box springs, none with both) and was STIFLINGLY, UNBEARABLY HOT! There were only 2 small, difficult-to-open windows. The "4th bedroom" was gone because it had been turned into a stairway that led down to the basement where the owner (who lives next door) is trying to improve the house's foundation. As a result of this work, doors don't open/close all the way and nearly every wall had cracked wallboard. The lake itself is wonderful (great swimming, boating, and fishing), but the house was a disappointment. Check with the owner to make sure there is a 4th BR. Thank God we had 2 members of my family cancel at the last minute! Also, there was a small charcoal grill, but no gas grill, which made cooking for 5 vacationing people a chore. We paid the extra money to have our small dog there for the week and were very careful to pick up whatever "business" our dog left behind. I wish the same could be said for the owner's dog who meandered around the place and apparently decided his/her personal bathroom was the rear entrance to the house. Finally, our required security deposit was paid by us with a cashier's check, which the owner, having found the house in the same condition as when we arrived, tore up. A cashier's check! Have you ever tried to get the money back from a bank for a destroyed cashier's check? (Some of you know what I'm talking about.)
All in all, this house would have been suitable for 4 or fewer people with the second floor virtually unuseable in the heat of the summer. Again, check with the owner to make sure there is a 4th bedroom. In the event the owners have made the necessary changes to their house or to its advertisement and there is a 4th bedroom, then I apologize.
