Guestbook comments from the owner

What an idyllic location! The walking trail around the lake behind the house is stunning. The neighbourhood is perfect, including an amazing factory outlet shopping experience that we only found on the last day!! The house is huge, extremely clean, well maintained and has everything you could possibly need. We had five adults staying there and were joined by three children for the last night and never felt crowded. The two levels with separate living areas provided plenty of space and yet we had lots of room to dine and sit together as well. We absolutely loved it and have no hesitation to recommend it to anyone considering staying in the area. It was 10-15 minutes to Hudson one way and St Paul / Minneapolis the other.

It’s clean, the bedrooms worked out well, kitchen good size too!

We loved the walking trail being out the backdoor! We had some issues but after a call to the owner he resolved the problem quickly.

Enjoyable stay.

Great property!

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed here for our daughter's wedding in nearby St. Paul. It was a great choice. The property was as advertised and handled the ten of us easily, with lots of room to spread out, though we spent most of our time at the house hanging out in the kitchen/dining area, which made for great conversation. The house was very clean. The gas stove didn't work when we arrived, but the owner responded quickly (the gas just hadn't been turned back on after a recent repair) and it was fixed before the day was out. The walk around the lake was one of the best parts -- the walkway is literally right out the back door, and the lake and walk are gorgeous -- we're only sorry we didn't have time for more walks. There are a number of specific rules, which made us a bit nervous at first, but if you can live with them, this is a great choice.

Exceeded Expectations!

  • 5 of 5

Once again, renting a home through Bill exceeded our expectations! Colby Lake Place was the perfect home for my family and my sister’s family to share over Christmas! This home is so spacious and laid out perfectly for all eight of us, that we never felt crowded or in each other's way! We particularly enjoyed the large, well-appointed kitchen and dining room with beautiful lake views! The two living rooms - one upstairs and one downstairs allowed us to come together to play goofy games or just sit around to talk and catch up with each other!!

The home is in such a beautiful area! We loved looking out at the lake!! In fact, we took advantage of the trail outside the home, and walked the lake most mornings! The added bonus is that the home is close to many family and friends!

Having rented another property from Bill for the past few years, we find he is super easy to work with, and very responsive to our questions or concerns!

We will be booking Colby Lake Place again for Christmas 2017!

HS reunion gathering

  • 2 of 5

We are a group of women who have gather together every couple of years. The owner was difficult to work with: when some of the group cancelled out, I emailed to ask about the cancellation policy. The owner cancelled us without any discussion. We didn't want to lose out deposit so I asked if we could still rent the house and he reinstated our reservation.

The week of our rental, I asked if there could be any adjustment on our rate, since we had had more cancellations and were now down to half our number. I was told "No"

The house smelled musty when we arrived, and the tile in the 2 upstairs bathrooms was moldy.

Living room is small. Everything else was ok with the house, but I would not want to deal with the owner again, and would not stay there again

Owner's Response: This review is a misleading misrepresentation. There a twelve 4-5 star other reviews compare. It's my goal to provided renters with a trouble free vacation. Colby Lake Place... built in 1983 and remodeled in 2013... is a 7 bedroom well cared for home on Colby Lake. It's a great family gathering place with a large spectacular remodeled kitchen with granite counter tops and hardwood floors that will seat 12 people. One of the two family rooms is 25 ft X 15 Feet. Colby Lake Place is cleaned by a professional cleaning company. All renters sign a rental agreement and send a deposit to hold a reservation. The rental agreement "CLEARLY" states that a cancellation made after the agreement is signed and returned results in the loss of the deposit. My rental agreement also "CLEARLY" states that there is a minimum rent due for 6 or fewer people. This renter cancelled and then reinstated and signed a second rental agreement. The renter then returned a negative review because I was unwilling lower the rental rate below the minimum amount due a week before their arrival. There is no mold !!!
