Wonderful property!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the property and the house. Great kitchen. We had 11 people stay and it was large enough for all of us to be in there cooking Thanksgiving dinner. My only complaint would be that there really needs to be one more full bath for the bunk room. It sleeps 4 people and no bathroom. Also, lots of dust and cobwebs. The kitchen for sure needs a good cleaning.

Our crazy kids even jumped off the dock into the freezing lake and loved it! The view was amazing and all of the decks were so spread out and spacious. We would for sure stay here again! Thank you for sharing this amazing house with our family.

So close to perfect...but.....

  • 4 of 5

One of the MAIN reasons we rented this house the week of Christmas was because it had 2 fireplaces - which were listed as an amenity - which would lead you to believe that you could - in the dead of winter at the lake - light a fire - curl up with a good book and relax. Upon checking into the house we were told that the owner would not let us use the fireplaces because a previous renter used it "to much". Didn't we pay to use the fireplace?

The kitchen is wonderful - but renters should have access to 2 full size refrigerators. It takes a lot of food to accommodate the amount of people this house can hold but you are limited to 1 full size and one "bar" size fridge. The grocery store is so far away that it is not convenient to go to everyday.

The house is beautiful and easily accommodated our large family. The main floor is all hardwood and the lower floor is mostly (beautifully) finished concrete. Unfortunately there was not a broom or dustpan to be found. I spent a lot of time on my hands and knees with a wet paper towel trying to keep the mess to a minimum.

Another thing you might want to be aware of before you rent this gorgeous home is that ALL the bedroom closets on the main floor and all but 1 closet on the lower floor are locked. We had no where to hang any of our clothes. It was December - it was cold - there were 11 of us. We had coats and jackets everywhere. Not to mention it was Christmas and Santa had no place to hide anything!

All that being said.....the Viking oven - was awesome! The beds were comfortable and there were window treatments in the bedrooms - should you choose to block out the light and sleep in.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the good review/rating and the feedback. Sorry about not allowing access to the fireplace. Good example of how one bad guest can ruin it for everyone behind him by leaving them on the entire visit. Also, keep in mind this was a winter rental and the fireplace is not needed in the normal months. On the locked closets, the owners lock their private items away here. This is a necessary evil so that access can be given to this beautiful property. We will take care of the broom and dustpan and will talk to the owner about the refrigerator capacity. Please look past these small items to the big picture which is that this is a remarkable property. See the video for more details. Thanks, Jeff Thomas,

Great House!

  • 5 of 5

We had our family reunion at this house the first week in June 2011. It was a wonderful week. The house and dock were great and the funishings were A#1. I would definitely recommend this house to anyone who wants to get away from it all and have a wonderful vacation.

Beautiful home on Rock Creek. Great dock with easy access. Deep water off the dock. Close to Rock Creek Marina. Nice boat ramp at the end of the street. Large living area and kitchen to accomodate large groups. My family had a great time.
