Great property

  • 5 of 5

House was well stocked and clean. We loved using the paddle boards and kayaks to tour the lake. As other reviewers mentioned be aware the 2 queen beds in the sleeping loft must be accessed by ladder. The host was quick to respond and easy to deal with, very accommodating. We were already planning a return trip before we even left.

Nice to stay in a place that is exactly as advertised!

  • 5 of 5

We spent Sept 10 - 17 in this beautiful house. It was sunny and 75 each day, which made for amazing paddle boarding, kayaking and hiking. There were 5-6 adults and 2 dogs who stayed in the house and there was plenty of room. All of the appliances worked and when we had an issue with the hot-tub, the owner called the repair man. He was there in a half hour and it was fixed with no problem. The view is beautiful and I did my morning workout on the deck while overlooking the lake. When we return next year I will definitely bring fewer clothes as the washer/dryer make it easy to do a few loads of laundry. The only part of the house that may be hard for some is the stairs up to the two loft beds. The stairs are steep, but there are plenty of beds on the first floor to accommodate anyone who can not do that stairs. We really enjoyed our week and can't wait to go back next year!

Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We rent Vrbo houses a lot. This was the first time a place exceeded our expectations. House was really cool with all the the wood. Layout was great, slept really well. The lake is awesome, clean, quiet, beautiful. The house has a great view with all the windows. A few days the weather was perfect, almost surreal how beautiful it was. House came with a little whaler, paddle boards and kayaks. All good quality stuff. The little beach was great for launching kayaks and paddle boards and swimming. The motor on the whaler might need a tune up as had trouble idling so tricky docking. It's all about the lake, which we knew, because it's in a rural area, no real going out to eat or stuff. Alexandrea bay is an hour away which is like that. Went to Ottawa one day which was fun. Also we went through 4 cases of water so got to remember that. It was great to have our well behaved Labrador retriever with us. Only real problem was couldn't figure out how to catch trout, caught a lot of smallmouth and largemouth bass though. We would love to rent this place again.

Quiet Lake and Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

Large double deck and stairs down to boat dock and lakefront beach make for terrific outdoor living space with beautiful views of the lake. Add to that the hot tub and you have what you really search for in lakefront relaxation. We had brought extra beach chairs for our stay but house could certainly use more lounging chairs on the deck. Plenty of outdoor space. Interior of the house modern, clean and just bright because of large windows facing the lake. Master bedroom suite has same beautiful window views of the lake. House is well equipped with modern amenities. Must understand that to access 2 queen beds in loft you need to climb a ladder. Not an issue for either our adults or children. Loft beds separated by storage area so not fully enclosed bedrooms but private enough. Having the multiple kayaks and paddle boards with the Boston whaler made for great recreation on the lake. Nice rock to jump off of (10ft) on little island on other side of lake. Suggest you bring a few inflatable rafts to enjoy tranquil floating. This part of the lake is even more tranquil than the rest of the lake. Kitchen and Living quarters a bit tight for 12 people if you are forced to be only inside--which we were not. Most important is Nicki the owner handled any issue immediately. Nice to work with people who care about their renters. Word of advice on first arriving is to take hard first left when you get off paved road and go to end of dirt road as signage not clear. If you are looking for a relaxing lakefront vacation on a quiet lake you have found your spot.
