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

GREAT TIME BEAUTIFUL HOME AND VIEWS

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the Home on Lake wisconsin from June 10th to the 17th. We really enjoyed our stay. The house is great and with the three levels there was plenty of room for everyone to spread out. The kids loved having the whole downstairs area as their hang out without bothering us sleeping uptairs when they stayed up late. Nice pet friendly property too with many gates you can keep closed to keep the dogs from wandering. We brought our boat with and was great having our own private pier so we could jump on the boat and go when we wanted. We found some great supper clubs and lakeside bars nearby and had a blast. Hit the Dells for a day and went Ziplining, really enjoyed. Dave was funny and nice. Thanks again for sending us the items we forgot when we left! We highly recommend this property!

This is the place!

  • 5 of 5
This place was awesome, it had it all. There was plenty of room for our large group. It was very clean and had modern amenities. It was close to town, with a beautiful view of the lake and the ferry. We loved the private dock and the fishing was great. Had a wonderful fishing trip with the boys, I'll be coming back with my family for sure!

Fantastic family vacation

  • 5 of 5
Our family stayed at the Lake Wisconsin home this summer and had a fantastic time. The accomodations were comfortable and very well maintained. The property was perfect for our group. The view from the porch and lawn were great, we enjoyed beautiful sunsets each night and caught fish from the pier. We golfed, fished, water skied and visited nearby attractions such as the Winery in Sauk City. Dave was very helpful and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property to anyone planning a vacation in this area.
