Owner's Response: In the 9 years we have been renting our cabin we have never had a complaint about cleanliness but possibly our cleaning service did not do a good job in dusting for this guest!
It is a natural and almost annual process for lakes to purge themselves and during this period of a few days the lake indeed is “not very pretty” but it is a normal process that we have no control over. After this purge cycle the lake becomes crystal clear. For approximately 360 days of the year our lake is clear without any algae. It is stocked with sterile carp to keep the weeds down and they do an excellent job but they cannot control the annual purge cycle which is a purifying and healthy, natural process. The lake was stocked many years ago with large mouth bass and they have multiplied profusely making for excellent fishing.
Our 3.5 acre lake is enjoyed by the following: the fish mentioned above in addition to sunnies and other varieties of lake fish, heron, geese, king fishers, ducks, and many other birdsincluding migrating birds, a variety of turtles, frogs, beavers, muskrats, deer, turkeys, rabbits, coyotes, and an occassional bear. They all like it and they like the fact that they only have to share "their" lake with no more than 2 guests at a time!
