The guest house was clean and comfortable. Some minor conveniences such as paper towels, soap, and shampoo were not present as expected though linens and towels were of a high quality and very comfortable. Though the lake level is very low the lake is still accessible and swimming and kayaking was easy to accomplish. The main house was full and the volume of guests there made it a little uncomfortable to share the pool. Using the pool with that many other people who were smoking and drinking prevented us from feeling comfortable spending much time there. Some of the younger guests staying at the main house were rowdy and inconsiderate. That is a chance we took when we chose to rent from here knowing that there are other people on the grounds. Still, it is worthy of mentioning for planning purposes.
We did enjoy exploring the beautiful grounds and Sherry was very accommodating, providing a tour of the equestrian center. The property is very secluded and getting to and from town takes some time so bring plenty of food and supplies. Over all, we give it 4.5 stars.
Families with Teenagers,
Families with Young Children,
Owner's Response: It was a pleasure having you as our guests! I am so disappointed that some of the younger guests took away from your total enjoyment of the pool! One of the reasons that I remain 'onsite' is to try to ensure that everyone has a great time and if a guest is behaving inappropriately, I would definitely like to be made aware of it and have the opportunity to address the situation. Per the rental agreement, smoking is absolutely NOT permitted by the pool! If I had been made aware of that issue, it would have been handled immediately. Again, sorry that someone was disregarding the rules and made your pool experience less than perfect! Perhaps I need a 'No Smoking' sign by the pool to remind people.
Regarding some minor conveniences missing - my apologies! I try to keep everything stocked - with dish soap, dishwasher detergent, toilet paper, laundry detergent, hand soap at every sink, trash bags, plastic wrap, foil, coffee filters etc. etc. (along with body wash/shampoo under each bathroom sink). From time to time, something might run out and get missed when I am restocking. Again, if you had mentioned that too me while you were here, I would definitely have taken care of that for you. I try my best to ensure each guest has a **fabulous** time and that either myself or my staff is always available.
Thank you for taking the time to provide your feedback and I look forward to your return!
