Nice family weekend
Submitted: September 21, 2012
Stayed: September 2012
We stayed for 3 nights & had the house full: 6 adults, 1 toddler & a baby. It was very nice – nothing special, over-the-top, or fancy, but worked for our family. There were a few things that could use improvement, but overall, I would recommend this house to someone looking for a generally clean, comfy, quiet place to enjoy the lake.
*Few things that needed maintenance:
-dishwasher closed funny (weren’t sure if we used it right)
- shower head in master bathroom
- one sliding door to screened-in porch was stuck; couldn’t open
- gas grill did NOT work & needed a good scrubbing – icky.
- cleaning needed around downstairs windows & walk-out area.
*Instructions for the AC/Heater would’ve been nice – we could not figure it out
*Instructions for the TV – couldn’t change channels the first day. It took 2 calls to Dish Network to get everything working correctly, and we had 6 very intelligent adults trying…
*Dining table wasn’t big enough for all of us at once. 2 adults had to sit at the Kitchen bar (tables in screened-in porch area offered plenty of seating though!)
*Single bedroom with 1 full bed needed another side table or something. Not enough room for our stuff to be out. Take out the tiny TV we never used & put in a little dresser or something.
*Downstairs bathroom/laundry room combo needed more counter space. For 4 adults, we had to spread our stuff out on top of the washer & dryer. Maybe a couple towel hooks too. And more towels.
*Crib that was provided looked a little cheap & dusty. We used the pack & play we brought instead.
*The important stuff was very clean & well-kept. No problems using the towels, sheets, bowls, cups, etc
*Had a view of the lake from the front & back of house. Nice, quiet neighborhood that was easy to find.
*Screened-in porch was lovely! Wish we could’ve used it more!
*Big, wide driveway was perfect for our 3 cars with room to spare
*Comfy couches & accommodations
*Xbox 360 was a welcome perk & fun to use! Games were provided
*Kitchen was well-stocked with bowls, cups, kitchen tools, etc. Had everything we needed. We brought paper plates, but for a larger group, there might not be enough plates, etc.
*WiFi was also a nice touch. Helped us find local info easily on our smartphones!
