Lovely home for family and pups!!

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful home with all the amenities you could want. All appliances were top notch, beds were incredibly comfortable, kitchen was well stocked and the DVD selection was never ending! You would never know this was a house that allowed dogs-no carpet stains and absolutely no pet odor! Dock has partial shade which was great and area was very quiet for swimming. Bit of a long walk down to the water (stairs and sloping terrain) but doable for our family. House was nicely decorated, and the master bath has a luxury tub. Upstairs bedrooms have private porches. Great quality grill and table and chairs for outdoor eating. We had a question about the air conditioning and the home owner called us immediately. Lesson learned- Read the binder left by the homeowners!! It answers ALL of your questions!! Wonderful home, and so nice that our pups could come too. We highly recommend Woodland Lake Retreat!

Owner's Response: Thank you! I'm so glad everyone including the 4-legged family members enjoyed their stay (and that we quickly figured out that the A/C wasn't an issue thank goodness). Hope you'll think of us again soon. Have a great rest of the year. - Andrea

A lovely vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

We loved the setting, the layout of the house, and the view of the lake (both from the upper deck and the dock). Very nice amenities, too. Thank you for allowing us to bring our dog!

just the best !

  • 5 of 5

Thanks to our lovely hosts Bill and Anna for making our time so relaxing.

First: well this is an apartment not just a B&B - bedroom, lounge and bathroom all beautifully furnished and ell appointed.

Then: a really large and comfy bed and a good hot shower.

And Finally: our hosts! - where to begin, welcoming and relaxed making us feel so at home. they were happy both to spend time chatting and leave us alone when we needed. Highlight were the fabulous breakfast provided by Analiese; I will not forget the waffle in a hurry.

add to this a perfect location right on the waterfront in a quiet bay..... perfect

many thanks folks

Chris and Simon

Owner's Response: That does sound wonderful but it's not our property. Woodland Lake Retreat is a full home not a B&B. I'm sure Chris & Analiese will really appreciate your review. Please repost to them.

It was great!

  • 5 of 5

We all loved the house. It was clean and a very good size. It has a lot of Windows, so you wake up and have a beautiful view of the lake. The only thing that we didn't love was that it didn't have WiFi, so we had to turn off our cellular data frequently. Overall, I would say it was a great house to rent, close to a grocery store, clean, cozy, and everything we wanted in a house. We will definitely rent again.
