This meet our expectations !!

  • 4 of 5

We went on 2018 spring break, but actually we were under heavy snow storm there on that weekend. The snow view of the lake was awesome, specially on that full moon night, even we saw a dear walking on the lake in moonlight.The view of the living room is fantastic. We saw other people riding snow bike in the lake.

After the snow fall the response of Brian was too good, as the road conditions were too bad for driving,he managed someone to clean the snow.

I certainly recommend this property for others as well.

Only advice for Brian to upgrade the current tv with a smart TV.

Beautiful cabin VERY well kept.

  • 5 of 5

Great place to get away from it. The cabin was VERY clean and well kept with updated furnishings and all the amenities you could possibly need. The view was spectacular and the all sand shore was great for the kids and swimming. We caught plenty of fish of the dock and on the lake and really enjoyed the canoe, kayaks, and paddle boat. We loved the fire pit and dock and ate dinner on the deck facing the lake every night. The owner Brian was great to work with. We are already planning to book a reservation again next year.

Property was very cozy.

  • 3 of 5

I enjoyed the property and it's location. The only problem I have is that the property owner collected a cleaning charge but in order to get all of your security deposit back you needed to do 95% of the cleaning yourself. Some of the cleaning requirements left to the renter include vacuuming the entire place, shaking out the throw rugs outside and mopping floors. What am I paying a cleaning fee for then? The owner sends you confirmation emails about your stay and was not very cordial including frequent reminders of the cleaning responsibilities.

Pretty view, meh housekeeping.

  • 3 of 5

Great place that met our needs with beds. Wished we had known dock was pulled. Found a hair brush and dirty sock in fresh bedding so, a bit iffy on housekeeping. Lots of dead bugs (ladybugs) on all floors. Pretty view.

Owner's Response: We pulled our dock the week before this reservation and were the last ones on our lake to do so. We typically pull our dock by early October as do most other lake home owners in the north woods since there are years the lakes begin to ice over by the end of October. Not sure how the brush and sock could have got into the bedding as all used bedding is washed and changed after EVERY reservation. Never had any previous issues with bedding and have made extra efforts to assure no future occurrences. Our lake house is thoroughly cleaned after each reservation. View our past reviews commending the cleanliness of our lake house. The lady bugs on the floor are the result of an over abundance of lady bugs this fall and several unoccupied days prior. Our lake house is thoroughly vacuumed after each reservation. We have been renting out our lake house since 2006 and have many guests renting our lake house annually. See our other reviews attesting to the quality and cleanliness of our lake house and good experiences renting from us. We also include an information page to renters with detailed rental information and local information.

Quiet, Relaxing weekend!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented this cabin for the weekend to get away from the city. It was great! Brian was very responsive and sent us a lot of useful information for the area. The cabin was fully stocked with everything you could possibly need and VERY clean! Was so nice to have access to the kayaks and canoe. It was a great weekend and we would definitely rent this again! Thanks, Brian!!
