HAD A GREAT FAMILY TRIP

  • 5 of 5

My family went for a long family weekend. The house was beautiful. The main floor had plenty of room for all of us to sit around and talk and laugh. The upstairs bedroom were wonderful, especially the master bedroom. The lower level bedroom and bath were a bit cold. The views were fantastic. I would love to stay here again in the summer to take advantage of the lake. Thank you for a wonderful place to stay.

We rented Daves place the first part of September and had a fantastic time. The house is beautiful and with 2 separate decks overlooking the lake there was no end to great views. The ferry is just down the lake a bit and is a lot of fun to just ride on (7 minutes) to get to the other side and have some ice cream (plus it's free...the ferry, not the ice cream!). Being near to the Dells without being in the Dells was a plus (we went zip-lining). Local wineries are there also plus the lake itself. Dave was very accommodating and friendly. Will we be back? You bet.

My wife and I hosted our two children from different areas at this wonderful vacation home along with our 2 grandchildren. The house was clean and well supplied. The views were great and we liked the roominess of the master bedroom. The lower level could use a better arrangement for family to gather. Wished the fishing was better but we enjoyed our boat out on the lake daily. The house and property were well kept. We met neighbors who were friendly and helpful for restaurant and lake information. We wished the water had less algae but that is not the fault of the owner. Our only concern was the slow return of our deposit, but that was taken care of in the end. We would recommend this home.

Holiday Weekend Rental

We rented the house for a family get together. The location was beautiful. The house was comfortable for our group and well stocked. The Merrimac Ferry was fun. Would go back again.

I intended to write this review right after we arrived back home but life got in the way and forgot; even though this review may seem to be untimely I felt compelled to write after I read a review from Megan of Chicago. It just so happened that our family rented this house from May 23 - June 22, 2014 and all of us thought it was great! - I happen to be very particular about cleanliness especially kitchen and bathrooms. I found no issues with the kitchen or with any of the 3 bathrooms. There were lots of linens (sheets, towels, blankets, etc.) and all of these were very clean and smelled good.

The owner, Dave, was very responsive to any questions we had. Our garbage and recycling was picked up at least twice a week.

None of us noticed any bugs other than a mosquito or two that might find it's way into the house.

The supplies were more than ample - I have never rented a cabin, cottage or condo that had so many supplies i.e. paper towels, toilet paper and every kind of cleaning supply that one could want.

We all had a wonderful vacation there and it was a real plus to be able to bring our dogs!!

We were able to invite lots of friends and family to visit us while we were there and they all thought it was a beautiful house. Would absolutely rent this house again!!

AVOID! Very Dirty and poorly maintained.

  • 1 of 5

As to avoid wasting more time communicating with this owner I will simply share my email correspondence. This should deter you enough...

Email from me...

Hi Dave-

We have a couple issues:

There are dead ladybugs everywhere, I had to vacuum. They are all over the bed in the second bedroom. This leads me to believe this place wasn't cleaned. The 'clean' towels have bugs on them.

The toilet off the kitchen was very dirty, also many ladybugs in the bathroom.

The floors in all three bathrooms are dirty. Bugs/sticks

There is literally one (1) wine glass

There was an empty paper towel roll on the roll (fine if you don't supply, but leave an empty one?)

The dishwasher soap is empty.

We discussed this but the gas for the grill was empty, the cost was $19.99

There are broken yard ornaments in the yard

The windows in the living room are so so dirty you can't see out. One of the other guests thought it was raining. I tried to clean them but I there doesn't seem to be window cleaner.

Thanks

NO RESPONSE FROM DAVE

Second email from me...

Dave-

We just checked out and left the place much cleaner than we found it. I'm sadly quite appalled by how dirty it was.

It is 100% obvious that it was not cleaned prior to our arrival. It seems unjust that you charge an extra 'cleaning fee' for dogs when the house is not properly cleaned in the first place.

In addition to having to go out and get has for the grill, our Friday night was spent cleaning. Vacuuming up dead bugs, emptying dishwasher, rinsing plates, wiping up bathroom floors, and cleaning the toilets. We had to remove the dead fish and shards of lawn ornaments from your yard to protect the dog.

In addition to the list I already sent you:

The towels in the bathroom smelled terribly of mold and mildew. They were unbearable to use. This can occur when towels are not dried properly or at the right temperature.

We filled the dishwasher but could not run it bc the soap under the sink was empty.

Do you recycle? We separated everything but your cans were not labeled. Hopefully you do and I just overlooked this.

I'm disappointed you have not replied to my previous email. We had a very short weekend away to relax and I hardly think it's fair that after cleaning our own house and driving three hours for vacation we had to clean a rental.

The character limit is cutting me off but you can see that there were several issues.

Owner's Response: Please all future Guests submit a review. Have seven years of happy guests and you will be very comfortable and satisfied. This issue started with an empty propane tank, which I immediately addressed, and has escalated from there. I assure all future guests there will be no issues. Written above was not the correspondence I received.Originally most of it was an Extortion attempt. I was there at the premises one hr. before there arrival, the State of Wis. Health Dept had there yearly inspection two wks. prior. Doubt if the propane was empty. Thank You, Dave
