Excellent Girls Weekend

  • 5 of 5
From the first point of contact the owner was very easy to deal with and a delight to rent from. She was available for every question we had and gave us plenty of information to make our stay seamless. 6 girls enjoyed a 4 night stay during Country Thunder. The beds were comfortable and the living and kitchen areas exceeded our expectations. Plenty of room for laughing over the night's festivities and plenty of space to share a meal. Everything was very clean and in perfect working order. The 2nd fridge in the garage helped a ton! This house had everything we needed. Thanks again for making our stay enjoyable. We hope to rent next year.

Very Nice for the Money

  • 4 of 5
Lots of space and updates for the price. Stocked with everything you could possibly need. Nice backyard, very close to lake & park. Wonderful large windows = great natural light. Lovely wood-burning fireplace. The beds are not incredibly comfortable but I wasn't expecting them to be as that is not my experience with cottages in general.

Left this property after one night of stay.

  • 2 of 5
We stayed in this house for only one night.We didn't like the smell of the house. First thing you will see when you open the door is dirty floor mates.Cottage itself is fairly clean , but the real killer for my family was that linens and blankets were not fresh.It seams that they are like 20 years old.We didn't sleep well and packed our stuff and left next morning .The owner should invest some money in this business( I mean how much would it cost to get some linens and floor mats in Walmart ?).
Location of the house is pretty good though .It's just across the street from the lake.There is a playground and tennis court just 3 minutes of drive away.Unfortunately for us it was cold and rainy .Maybe if weather during our planned stay was better we would just spend all the time outside and hold our noses at night.
I don't know folks,maybe it's just us being too squeamish.But this is not our first time renting property and it's first time writing negative review.We stayed in this house for only one night.We didn't like the smell of the house.

Owner's Response: I have to admit, the prior reviewer is right about the door mats. They were dirty. They have since been cleaned. I also spoke to the person who cleans for me and can assure that won't be an issue in the future. As to the linens being older, some are, some are new. All are clean. I provide two sets of linens for eight beds. It is a cottage, not a luxury hotel room. If that is an issue, guests always have the option of bringing their own linens. I do not know what the odor was, but I had family members there until two days prior to their arrival, who reported no such problem. My cleaning person did not smell it when she came in to clean the house after their stay. Finally, it was cold and wet in June, and they were unable to spend time outdoors. I have no control over that. I do provide a range of board games, puzzles, and cards, which is what we do on rainy days. I have also invested in a flat screen TV, and continue to invest in cable and internet service for our guests.
I do not believe that I have misled anyone. The photos on the website show the actual bed coverings that remain in use. It is unfortunate they did not enjoy our house, but as you can see from other reviews, their reaction is not typical.

Great Twin Lakes Rental

  • 5 of 5
House was very clean and well stocked with everything you could possibly need. Owners were friendly and accommodating. We brought our boat which worked out great. House fit two families without a problem. I would highly recommend this property.
