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.
In town for daughter's wedding and needed a large home for immediate family to stay. Colby Lake home was as advertised with 7 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. Good space for family to gather in the kitchen/dining area. Location on Colby Lake was really great. The house was clean on the surface; however, we felt it was not well kept. The house smelled terribly stale like it had been closed up for months. Even after we had windows open for 6 days, really bad smell. Lighting throughout the house was not good. In many places, lights didn't work at all (including outdoor lights), and where they did...very dim and dark. I would encourage anyone considering this house to ask to review the contract before you commit and pay the deposit. The contract is very restrictive and there are an inordinate amount of rules. While I understand the need to care for the house in this residential neighborhood, honestly, we felt we were being asked to leave the house in better condition than we found it. We didn't see the contract until after we committed, and by then we would have forfeited the deposit. Read the rules and contract carefully. We've rented many homes and have never experienced anything quite like this. Also, I recommend paying by check as they charge an exorbitant fee to process a credit card...in all fairness this was included in the contract so again...focus on reading all the fine print. I would say if you need a large home in a neighborhood environment and completely understand all the rules and expectations, this home could be for you.
Our family rented Colby Lake Place for six nights. On the weekends we had 13 people in the house and did not feel at all cramped. We had gathered from many states to attend my son's wedding. The house was exactly as described. It was clean, roomy, nicely furnished, well stocked with essential kitchen items, and in a lovely neighborhood. We found we were no more than 30 minutes from anything we wanted to go to. Our family made daily use of the paved trail around the lake that was just steps out the back door. We enjoyed lots of gatherings in the kitchen which was spacious enough for us all to be together. The deck was used to relax on - except when the mosquitos came out. The only semi-issue we had was that the downstairs was much colder than the upstairs. We managed to work it out - and found space heaters in the closets to take the chill off before bedtime. All in all it was a great place to stay and I would not hesitate to stay there again. Thank you Bill for allowing us to stay in one of your homes!
This was suburban nice. Our favorite thing was taking walks around the lake (approximately 3 miles around) daily! The trail is outside the back door, and you go from the suburban to the urban feel right away. Perhaps that's Minnesota?! The house was fairly clean; the kitchen stocked well for our multi-family gatherings; the kitchen-dining area large. We were outside or at events, so didn't spend time in the downstairs TV room. We did laugh at the small size of the upstairs "living room", 2 couches facing each other. We had PLENTY of options for people to spread out and have their own space, which is nice for 10 people. The owner is nice, a man of few words, which made me nervous because i'm only used to chatty "Minnesota-nice" folks. But when we talked on the phone, he answered our questions which helped. There are a LOT of rules, which made me nervous, but respectfully, it is in a nice neighborhood. We found ourselves driving approx 30-45 min to the University, airport and other events, so centrally placed. Short drive to good stores, which is helpful for traveling. I would recommend it.
We hosted a company retreat for 14 of us and found this property suitable for lounging & cooking majority of our meals together. We spent most time in the spacious kitchen playing card games & mixing drinks. As hosts, my husband and I stayed in the upstairs bdrm w/ bathroom and our guests shared the other two bathrooms. We found extra TP in the linen closet, blankets and extra pillows. We had two training for 5K's who enjoyed the lake trail (right next to the residence).
We had a wonderful time at your beautiful house on our girls get-a-way. The place was extremely clean and well kept. We found all the cooking utensils we needed in order to satisfy and serve 10 women!! The rest of the house had plenty of room for relaxing and privacy if necessary. The walking trail was a safe and pleasant addition to our weekend.
We appreciate your flexibility and willingness to accommodate our large group on short notice. We will be back, you can count on it.
14 of us, 8 adults and 6 children, traveled from Philadelphia area to attend family reunions in Eagan and Lake Elmo. The house may be deceiving from the outside. With the finished basement with 3 bedrooms, the children were able to have their own area to play games and watch DVDs while the adults were able to relax and enjoy each other's company late into the night. While we were concerned with the owner's request to limit the number of people visiting the community pool at one time, we found Lake Elmo's Reserve with swim pond and play area a better choice any way. We were able to visit Mall of America, Valley Fair and Target Field for Twins game and all were within reasonable driving distance. There was plenty of grocery stores, department stores, coffee houses and places to eat within just a few miles from the house. Cravings Wine Bar and Grille were able to accomodate all 14 of us as well as a couple of family members on short notice. They had a great wine list as well food menus to appeal both adults and children. The kitchen was well equipped and since there is a grill off the deck, the men actually cooked most of the meals. The house was clean and the owner checked in to make sure all was as expected. This was definitely a better choice than staying at a local hotel both from an expense and convenience perspective.
