We had a great and relacing vacation! The only issue we had was that both of your propane tanks were empty, so we filled one of them.
My family and I enjoyed a relaxing vacation at this property during the last week of June 2012. The house is roomy, comfortable and clean and has all the amenities and conveniences of home. There were eight of us and we had plenty of room to relax and unwind. This property is at the end of a narrow and relatively shallow cove which is a huge plus if you have small children. The cove is sheltered from the wind and received zero motor boat traffic while we were there. It is the perfect place for the kids to use the on-sight jon boat while the adults relax on the beach. The only complaint I have is that there were three propane tanks for the gas grill but they were all empty. Other than that I have nothing negative to say about this property. However, the comments about the steepness of the hill in other reviews are accurate and I would not recommend this property for elderly, disabled or physically unfit individuals.
Inside: This house was the best one we've stayed at in all of the different lake houses we've rented on lakes in this area. The kitchen was very functional, living room was larger than most vacation rentals, and the bedrooms worked out great for our family. While we were outdoors most of the time, the inside of this house suited our needs well. However, one of the bathroom showers was inoperable during our entire stay. The shower water valves needed a part and a plumber to fix it, and the owner told me he did all he could to try to have this fixed during our stay. The reason I'm giving this review 4 stars out of 5 is because we only had the use of one shower instead of two as we'd expected and paid for. I was told by the owner that the shower would be fixed right after our stay, which is good.
Outside: Plenty of parking in the driveway was a big plus for multiple vehicles. The wrap-around deck on the back of this house is a tremendous value add. We spent much time on the deck when we weren't down on the beach. The dock/beach area worked very well for fishing and swimming. Sandy bottom until you're about chest deep. Be aware that the neighbors are in close proximity on either side of this property when you're down on the beach. So, if you end up with a noisy/rude rental neighbor, it will be hard to ignore them.
Listing accuracy / Amenities: 5/5 (Wi-Fi, Cable TV, Gas Grill was excellent)
Cleanliness: 4/5 (The beach had trash on it that we cleaned up, and we had to spot clean some spots inside the house)
Owner's customer service: 5/5 (Very responsive; the shower problem was the plumber's fault, not the owner's. Very friendly and helpful)
Recommendation score: 4.5/5
We had a wonderful time at your house! The lake was beautiful, we enjoyed spending time on the deck. Would definitely recommend it!
This was my first time renting this place and I have to honestly say it was one of the best I have rented for the price. The only thing that fell short of a perfect 10 was the access to the lake. Not suitable for elderly to sit by the lake. Other than that, this house had every thing. I was impressed with the amenities. Plenty of room on the deck. Very nice large gas grill. I took advantage of the wireless internet out on the deck. I would recommend this place and would like to return.
The accommodations were very nice. I have to agree that the beds were not so comfortable.Loved the deck & there were plenty of beach chairs.The fire pit & grill were nice.Bonus points for the washer & dryer! We enjoyed floating in the lake but were greatly disappointed with the amount of lake weed. We are all about the swimming & beyond the 6 ft gravel area was very weedy. We took our floats & kayaks out into the middle of the lake to try and swim without getting tangled in weed. I realize that is the nature of some lakes, but I specifically asked about weeds. I felt the pictures were a little deceiving as you did not see the close proximity of the neighbors or the 5 flights of stairs down to the water. Kayak lugging was not fun! I think this house is a great vacation spot for those with younger kids who stay within the shallow weed free area. Not great for avid swimmers or people who can't do a lot of stairs. Was quiet as far as lake traffic, even out in the middle of lake, at the end of the cove there was hardly any boating.Floating out in the lake in 80-90% weather all week made this a relaxing vacation.Owner pleasant & helpful!
