Good Effort, Misses the Mark
I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental.
I was very happy with the location.
The vacation rental was very clean.
The property manager was very helpful.
Overall, I recommend this vacation rental.
The title of this property is misleading. But I expected it was from the beginning, so no big deal. But you have asked for a review so I feel I need to include that. I found the house to be more "a lodge with a view of the pond" than a "luxury lake view chalet", but that's okay. I am very, very fussy when it comes to clean and I found that for the most part it was very clean. Some of the dishes and pans in the cabinets were found dirty/greasy. I felt the living room sofa and love seat could use a furniture shampoo (didn't seem to bother anyone else in our party, so I just refrained from sitting on it). I found the home to be very clean otherwise. Well vacuumed, no cobwebs or dust in the corners. The bathrooms and floors were very clean, and nice fresh bed sheets and towels were provided. The basement where the futons are (needed to sleep 8) was a great disappointment. It was a cemented, unfinished floor, damp and smelly. The dehumidifier rattled so loudly that it had to be turned off to sleep (which turned out to be ok for my 20 year-old son, but I was upset that those were his sleeping conditions). The pool table was on such a slant that we could not use it as the balls all rolled to one end. The "jacuzzi" amenity was misleading as it turned out to be simply spray jets in a traditional bathtub. The TV lacked cable stations, so we were unable to watch the RedSox game. And the stereo is a small, but adequate, iPod docking station. So, bottom line, the house met expectations mostly, but lacked attention in some areas. So, good effort, but misses the mark.
