Awful Property...Misleading advertising

  • 1 of 5

This property was nothing like the descriptions. Reviews probably left by someone who never had used the property. Says it is beachfront and there is nothing beachfront about it. Description says it is 60 yard walk down the grass to the water. It is 60 yards for the cottage they show in the picture, but problem is that is not the unit you are renting. The unit is almost 130 yards away from the water. There is no yard at all around the cottage. The only yard you have is the shared area by the water. There is also nothing semi-private about the beach area. Any of 4 units can use this area and most of the time it is full and you can't have a fire by the water. The fire pit by the cottage itself is nothing but dirt and the sprinkler comes on every morning so you can't even sit out there in the morning. Also, don't be fooled. They make it sound like it is one unit with an upstairs. This is actually two seperate units you are renting. You have to go outside in the dirt and walk around the back to get to the stairs that lead to the updstairs. Many of the outside lights are broken and do not work so you are in the dark around the cottage. The cleanliness of the cottage was good though....no complaints there. Basically, we spent good money to sit in a cottage that was no where close to the water and had nowhere to hang out with the kids and play....other than an area shared by lots of people. You are also jammed in very close to all the other cottages...no privacy at all. Don't be fooled as the advertisement implies. This unit is not on Long Lake. It sits way back with a Birchwood Cove Community easement to use to get to the water. There is nothing Beachfront about this property.

Owner's Response: Whew. Things sure did not go well on your stay. That is why the current owner found a new management company. The cottage interior has been updated. The exterior is cleaned up, lights added as well as solar lights. The outdoor area in the rear of the house that has a firepit is now cleaned up and set up to relax. Still rustic but a nice place to chill. Yes the water is 60 yards away. If it was direct waterfront this home would be twice the price. The water and frontage here are stunning and worth the little walk. We are sorry you had an unhappy stay. We hope we will do a much better job of managing this property.

Perfect Couples Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful weekend at Long Lake. The beachfront property was as pleasant as advertised and the house was perfect. It was like staying in a resort. We can't wait to make this a yearly tradition!

Great place for a family

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in this cottage. First of all, it was SO clean! Everything was perfect. The kitchen was large and the living area were very comfortable and nicely decorated. we used the downstairs for my family and my Dad and then upstairs for my inlaws. it gave everyone a good amount of space =). (With my kids, thats a good thing =). The beach, dock and lake were a great fit for our family. I would highly recomend this place to anyone! Thanks for a wonderful, and memorable, vacation!!
