Exactly the quiet vacation I expected

  • 5 of 5

This get-away, on a small lake, was the quiet vacation I was looking for. Wi-fi, yes, but we un-plugged to enjoy this scenic cabin with unbelievable views. Family stopped by for a bbq and stories around the campfire. I would definitely come here again. Music at the main beach on Saturday was welcoming. This was a very nice community.

Sadly - very disappointing!

  • 1 of 5

We rented this property just recently in July. Upon arrival the home was filthy. There were dirty sheets on the beds, food on some of the dishes, bars of used soap in the bathrooms, hair in the upstairs tub, the microwave was covered in splattered food and there were open packages of someone else's food in the cabinets. We spent the whole afternoon and evening running laundry (comforters and bed linens), using the dishwasher to clean dishes, and doing basic cleaning of the entire home. Worst of all, upon trying to call the owner - there was no answer. He did call back the following day to say he would refund us our cleaning fee. He also mentioned the home was for sale. After we got home, we never received our deposit or cleaning fee back. The owner claimed he never got the payment from VRBO. He asked us to send him some kind of verification of payment, like our credit card statement, to show him we had paid for the rental (which we had paid to VRBO in MARCH!). We had to contact VRBO numerous times. Then the owner sent us a check from his karate studio, which bounced due to the account being closed.

Great clean place to spend some relaxation moments

  • 5 of 5

Pros - Great fishing spot - never caught so much Pike.

Cons - Make sure you have all guests in paper as community security is worst than visiting NASA

Stunning views and great cabin!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this cabin for our annual family winter getaway and it was absolutely perfect! Worked great for 2 families (6adults 3 kids) with downstairs playroom for kids and upstairs was perfect for hanging around the fire and having dinner as a family! Cabin was clean and views where picture perfect! Owner was great to deal with directly and super accommodating and helpful throughout entire process! Would definitely recommend to a family looking for a nice place to spend quality time together and still being within 25min drive to Camel back resort for lots of family fun! Great time and memories to last a lifetime!

Great Thanksgiving weekend at Big Bass Lake

  • 4 of 5

My family really enjoyed our stay at the lake house for Thanksgiving weekend. My kids and their cousins had a great set up on the first floor and had fun exploring the woods near the house. Great views of the lake from the deck and from the living room area. Good restaurants nearby. Staff at Big Bass were very friendly and helpful. Would recommend for a relaxing getaway trip.
