Another Lovely Stay!

  • 5 of 5
This is our second stay at the house. Just like the first time, it was wonderful. I love to create inspired meals - this home has every dish, gadget, pan and even lovely china to serve your meals on. My parents came over for an afternoon - I was able to create a nice veggie plate, fruit plate and homemade eggrolls for us to enjoy. After a game of Scrabble (games and books are in the home to utilize) we all went out to enjoy a bottle of wine on the patio. As before, the beautiful swans swam by and geese flew overhead. Bedrooms have clean comfortable beds, bathrooms have fresh towels. Stay at this lovely property and make yourself at home!

simply lovely!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I just returned from a weeks stay. Our experience was great. This home is very clean. All the beds were very comfortable and fresh smelling. The kitchen was very clean and had a great assortment of cooking tools, pans and cassarole pots with lids. We especially liked the propane grill on the patio - took advantage of that to grill some steaks and chicken. We had a few family members over and it was wonderful to be able to host a dinner party in such a beautiful place. The two bathrooms gave my husband and I room to spread out and truly feel comfortable (not cramped). The home is very close to ANY necessary shopping (groceries, department stores, pizza places, liquor stores etc..). Every day we were treated with geese flying overhead and swans swimming around looking beautiful. Be sure to wander down the dock and check out all the fish swimming around. Have a great time and enjoy this relaxing and simply lovely place!

The truth

  • 1 of 5
Certainly was not what we saw in the pictures. Had to walk the owner around and show all the dirt including the dust worms coming off the fan. My wife spent over a week cleaning the place including the refrigerator. Owner then said we left the closet dirty so he didn't refund any of our cleaning money as he promised. Ooops, we didn't use the closet, his family left it a mess. Never again!

Owner's Response: This renter stayed over a year ago before deciding to write this experience which is quite different from our records of his stay. The photos online of our home are complete and accurate. I went out of my way to try to accommodate him by allowing a pet in my home after his pressure stating “how would you even know if he brought a pet”, but I added an additional “pet fee” to the quote for the required additional cleaning due to our child’s allergies.
I did come out to walk through the house to discuss his dissatisfaction: several items related to the well water and a cobweb (the home is on a lake), and after apologizing and offering to address the items, I was told they needed to clean it to their standards, and demanded a refund of the “pet fee”. I agreed with the condition being the house was to be left without needing additional cleaning upon their departure. The children’s toy closet was never discussed.
Upon inspection of the house with his departure, dog hair was all over the leather furniture and wood floors, the cobweb that was complained about had doubled in size. In short, nothing was cleaned any better than it was left for them, and we had to spend additional time to remove the allergens.
The home was left in fine condition for this customer, but because of the aggressive and fanatic comments from him (who is a self-proclaimed filtration and dirt collection professional) I offered the refund of the “pet fee” we both agreed to. But after finding my home full of dog hair, and none of the persnickety details complained about addressed, if was obvious there was no respect for our agreement. I was only able to provide a partial refund for the “pet fee”.
After this experience, my wife and I have done our best to keep our home “hotel clean” and we do our best to keep our guests happy, but unfortunately we no longer can allow pets under any circumstances.

Family Time in Lake Orion

  • 4 of 5
We booked this place to spend time with family. Our Grandson's 1st bday was at Green Park on the Lake. It was perfect to have our other grandson's - 4&5 - and family with us. Place was clean and close to family and activities.

I would recommend to friends and would go again!

We went to Green Park again - great place, clean, lifeguards. You have to go to City Hall for a day pass of $5 for 4 people.
There is a splash pad at Oxford Township park - $4 for kids (non-resident) adults are free. Great playground and large park.
City of Troy pool was high priced but great to spend the day with small children - $11.50 p/person (nonresident)
We rented a pontoon boat for 2 days (Marina on the lake $200 pday) and spent the days at the sand bar in the Lake!
This place is close to Krogers so you can stock up and cook at "home".
Special memories just hanging out at the house, taking day trips, boating and making smores in the fire pit at night.

Tips - bring bug spray and water (unless you can drink well water)


Pros
-Clean
-great location
-fully usable kitchen with coffee maker, toaster, microwave, electric oven

Cons
- had to retape the window with the air conditioner with duct tape to keep out the bugs
- gas grill not cleaned
- row boat - we fixed with new hardware to use the oars
- need new patio chairs - pic shows 4 but only 3 - one broke and 2 are ready to break
