Great beach, yard and house for our mini family reunion

We stayed at Robertson Retreat the week of Aug 6th-Aug 13 and the entire family had a wonderful time. The sandy beach front was great for sunning and sand castle making. The shallow beach was great for the little ones to play safely. The paddle boat was a huge hit! We brought our 2 kayaks and everyone enjoyed paddling around the lake. While on the lake we had an eagle fly over and land on the little island area, what a thrill that was! He even stuck around for a photo shoot!
The living room is huge and we were all able to hang out and watch tv or read on the couple of rainy days we had. We brought decorations and had a luau birthday surprise party for our niece and everyone had room to dance the evening away. We really enjoyed making smores around the fire pit and surprisingly enough we never needed the bug spray we brought.
Teri was great to deal with during the entire rental process and Jeff was helpful during a problem with the dishwasher which was fixed right away.
Being the large group that we were, 10 adults and 3 small children we ate every meal but one at the house. The pantry and refrigerator door contained so many food items left from other guests that we had issues putting our own food away. We ended up going to the store and buying another cooler (even though we brought 1 large cooler with us) to put away our cold foods. We had to bag up some items from the pantry to fit our own food. You also have to take a trek down the road to dispose of trash and no trash can was left to store trash until that trip. While the eat in kitchen is large, it didn't fit everyone. That didn't matter during the summer since there's a table and chairs on the upstairs deck. Could be an issue in the winter. Two other issues were we had to make our beds when we got there and wash all the towels before we left. Also, the rowboat provided was beached and so full of water we couldn't use it at all.
Overall, we had a great time and want to thank Teri and Jeff for sharing their home with us. We would recommend this vacation rental to anyone looking for a lake front vacation rental.
