Very nice home!

My husband and myself and another adult couple enjoyed a week on Spider Lake. Kathy was very easy to work with and made the rental experience simple.
The positives of this home: amazing lake view, very clean and comfortable home, quiet neighborhood, excellent internet access, very nice grill. The deck is great and we all enjoyed lots of time out there. We didn't utilize either of the water crafts but they were very accessible had we wanted to.
The negatives: although linens were provided, there were not enough to get us through the week so we had to do laundry and no facilities on site, I recommend packing a few extra washcloths and towels. We also ran out of toilet paper and paper towels mid-week. The couple staying in the basement apartment reported that it was pretty noisy down there during the nighttime, probably the water conditioner. Although the home has cable, it has very few channels and while no one goes on vacation to watch tv, we had a few rainy days so hung out at the house more than we expected.
Of note is that both bathrooms are on the main level so guests staying in the downstairs bedroom will need to utilize the bathroom off of the main living area.
One thing I was surprised with based on my experience with other rentals, there were no condiments in the kitchen (ketchup, mustard, sugar, etc). While I would not expect an owner to supply these items, my experience has been that often ketchup, mustard, butter, sugar are left in the fridge from guest to guest. Again, I would not expect the owner to supply food and perhaps all other guests take everything with them.
Strongly recommend the local restaurant Peegeo's... great pizza, wings, and mexican food and very relaxed atmosphere. And the little farmers market near the house has excellent ice cream and locally grown fruit and veggies.
Overall, a very good experience.
