Great Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a peaceful place on the lake and found more than we expected. The cottage was clean, spacious and located in a quiet area. Our one neighbor greeted us and helped us feel welcome. The pontoon boat was perfect for fishing and just relaxing. We will be coming back to this property.

Don't waste your money!!

  • 1 of 5

We arrived at the cottage to find beer cans piled up from the previous renter and the cottage reeked of smoke even though it was supposed to be nonsmoking! We didn't show up early, they knew exactly what time we were coming. The cans should have been taken care of before our arrival. There were spiders and dead bugs in every corner and window, in cabinets and even in the refrigerator! The bedding was stained with who knows what and even found 3 dirty socks under the beds!! The few dishes that were there had food stuck on them, and no pans to use in the oven. The water in one shower didn't come out with more than a trickle. And speaking of water, it stunk so bad like sewage, we had to buy bottled water to use for drinking and cooking. You had to plug your nose while in the shower, if you dared to shower at all! If you have kids, take note: there were pieces of rusty metal and cement all over the yard and in the lake right in front of the dock, we spent the first day removing the hazards so the kids could at least go in the water. Just shows the total lack of concern for the guests! The lake has a very mucky bottom, not a nice place to swim! I tried to wash the kid's swim suits to get the lake smell off in the washer that was said to be there, only to find out it didn't work. Twice during our stay, raccoons got into the trash and hauled it all over the yard because the trash cans didn't have lids that fit or could lock on. We were told on the first day to bring the trash inside at night because raccoons were a problem, but who wants their stinky trash in the house at night!! Get a better trash can!! We did express our concerns to Michael. He said the cleaning lady would call to discuss things but instead of calling my cell like I asked, she called my home. Then I was told they tried to contact me but I never replied! Hard to get a message at home when I'm obviously not there! Michael's answer to any problem was to come visit him at another one of his rentals. Why not fix the issues at the one we paid money for?? If you don't care that a place is filthy and unsafe and just looking at the cost, this is for you. If you care the least bit about cleanliness, not getting injured on rusty metal and blocks of cement or not having to pick up trash thrown around the yard at 6am, DO NOT WASTE YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY!!

Great get away and will recommend to anyone!

  • 5 of 5

Great get away from the hectic busy lifestyle and city life we live daily. Large property and Great Lake front for both my husband and our dog to enjoy as a family. The pontoon boat was a great plus as we spent several hours enjoying the water and views of the several lakes attached. Great fishing opportunities as well. Very quiet area to enjoy both the day and night around a fire. Came with both charcol and gas grille which we used both. Very relaxing atmosphere. Mike was very nice and a great person to deal with. Thanks again and we will be booking in the future!

Amazing Place to Make Wonderful Memories!!!

  • 5 of 5

I just don't know where to begin! Roger's Place will definitely see our family and friends again! This place was soooo much more than we expected! The pictures certainly do not do it justice! We arrived to find a beautiful place, immaculately clean, very spacious and located in a secluded area. We only had one neighbor next to us and they were so friendly and welcoming. The place provided all the comforts of home...plenty of dishes, pots and pans, cleaning supplies to tidy up, bedding. We really didn't have to bring much with us. The place has two bathrooms, one master bedroom with a queen bed, a larger sleeping area with two queen beds, one small bedroom with a twin bed, one pull out couch in the family room and one couch in the living area. The living area and family room were both equipped with televisions, with cable and movies. The place was also equipped with air conditioning which was wonderful as we stayed during the hottest days of the Summer! We had seven grandchildren and four adults stay here and we had plenty of room for everyone! The grandkids will remember this place, this time, for the rest of their lives...a lot of "firsts" were made...1st fish caught, 1st pontoon boat ride, 1st smores! The pontoon boat was fully fueled upon our arrival. The lake made it's way into several other lakes. The kids loved swimming in the lake that had very shallow spots for them to play. We had access to a gas grill and a charcoal grill and a fire pit with benches already there. There was a nice umbrella patio outfit that we took advantage of. Mike and his crew made sure they covered every last detail of making our stay a memorable one. We will definitely be back! Thank you, Mike and crew, for all your hard work to insure our family was comfortable and happy! Our grandchildren will always remember the time they had at "Roger's Place"!

Had to aquire our own wood, but no big deal. 4 real beds, a fold out and a mattress, would sleep ten if you are real good buddies, but we chose to not be and single occupy. ATV friendly community, short ride to the bar/restaurant up the street, damn good food! Great place to hang outside, nice lake to take a pontoon ride on. Would stay again, it's not new, but nice work in proress
