Nice house and location!
The house looks just as nice and new as the pictures! Lake access was easy, not steep like some houses I've seen. It's in a nice little cove that was good for kayaks and just floating on tubes. There was plenty of room for parking and playing outside games. We brought 2 kayaks and jet skis and the owner also had a kayak and a canoe for our use. That made is easy for all of us to be out on the water at the same time. The huge fire pit was great. There were lots of games and dvds and they brought tvs and dvd players for the bedrooms while we were there. It was nice having the extra family room on the first floor. Proximity to the marina was convenient if you are interested in renting a boat or parasailing and for putting your boat/jet skis in and out of the water.
The minor downsides were: there is not a dvd player on either of the two main tvs, some kitchen things such as a pizza cutter, dutch oven sized pot, ice maker or ice cube trays and a cutting board were not there (but we were very happy with the coffee maker and blender), there was no safety rail for the top bunk, and, due to all the rain,there was stagnent water pooling behind the house which made hanging out on the deck unpleasant.
The only major downside was the spiders. The house really needs to be sprayed inside and out. I had the bedroom downstairs and found many spiders & webs behind the curtains on the inside of the windows. There were also spiders/webs behind the large dresser . Luckily there was a vacuum, so I vacuumed the entire bedroom. There were also webs in the ceiling above the dining table and all over the outside of the sliding doors, windows, and upper deck. I realize the house is in the woods, but routine spraying would help significantly.
Overall, we had a great week and loved being at the lake. I would recommend the house, but bring a can of raid just in case!
Owner's Response: I thank you for your insight and your suggestions, and apologize for the things that do not measure up. My wife & I have tried to think of everything that everyone may want or need, and as items are requested, we get them there. I will most certainly have the house treated for the spiders now that I am aware. Also, I will need to come up with a plan to re-direct the rain water so that it keeps moving. We have had an unusual amount of precipitation this season and I am sure the ground is super saturated. I hope all in all you had a Great Vacation! I will continue to strive to improve our home so everyone has a great experience. Thank you again for sharing your thoughts and experience.
