The house is exactly what was listed and then some!
We will book again! Thank you!
So glad you enjoyed it. It's a great place for sure.
Couldn't have been better!
We were two families of 4 and could not have had a better time. Merline is a great communicator and responded very quickly any time I had a question. Pool table in the loft with the stereo system was awesome for adults and kids....incredible variety of music for sure! The sitting area on the kitchen side was my favorite spot in the house...recliners in front of the fireplace and flatscreen while overlooking the lake, amazing! We did a lot of cooking and the kitchen was stocked with everything we needed. The hot tub was also great to get into after a full day of ice fishing as well! Cell service is spotty but the wifi worked great. Such a beautiful spot. As we were packing up to leave we all said we would definitely go back!
This property accommodated us for our family get away and was enjoyed by all. Spacious rooms and everyone was able to have their own space but also be together when needed in the common areas. We were able to enjoy winter outdoor activities like ice fishing and sledding. Definitely fitting for a family of 10.
Beautiful property - could use a few improvements
Our whole family (a group of 12 ages 17-79) enjoyed our stay very much. The fireplace is absolutely gorgeous (there was plenty of wood), and the kitchen is very well equiped. The pool table was definitely a hit! We appreciated the fact that the place was decorated for the Holidays (there was a Christmas tree in the living room). As for parking, it was not a problem and there was more than enough space for all 5 vehicles. The view on the lake is spectacular and had the weather been milder while we were there, we would have enjoyed sitting on the deck to admire the view.
As for the hot tub, we knew ahead of time that there was a possibility that it may not be working. When we arrived, it was empty and when we contacted Merline to that effect, she confirmed that no, the hot tub was not working. If the owner does not intend to have it fixed or replaced, then maybe there should be no mention of a hot tub in the property description. We were all very disappointed!
The property in itself was spacious, clean and well decorated. However, some of the mattress protectors and pillows were blood stained and should definitely be replaced. Also, considering that there are no dressers in the upstairs bedrooms, a few hooks here and there would have been appreciated. Finally, the adults who used the futon mattresses in the basement found them to be extremely old and uncomfortable.
I've already mentioned to Merline that there was an unpleasant odor in the basement while we were there, so hopefully that problem will be (or has already been) taken care of.
All of this said, this property, as well as the site, is beautiful and we had a wonderful time.
Neglected, dirty, unhygienic and unsafe
Please note: As it was two days before Thanksgiving and we were hosting some Colby college students who couldn’t go home for the Holiday, there was no time to look for another property.
Upon arriving, we were greeted with a dead mouse on the floor and a beeping smoke detector.
The bed sheets in the master bedroom were absolutely filthy. White dog hair all over the sheets and bodily fluids on the pillow cases!! So many stains on the bedding and pillows, it was beyond unhygienic and disgusting.
We went into town and bought our own pillows, etc.
The kitchen was filled with rotten, unusable, scratched, pots and pans, filthy flatwear, etc. HUGE negative surprise to find this house that advertises it sleeps 10 (or 12!) DOES NOT have a full size oven OR refrigerator. Be aware.
Are the leftover, used condiments belonging to the owner? Never have we come across so much stuff left in a fridge at a rental property.
I could go on and on. I believe there are safety issues regarding the ungrounded bathroom plugs in the master bath above the sinks. There is a six socket extender plugged into a socket directly above one sink. The smoke detector in the master bedroom was hanging open, no battery.
Lightbulbs were out, carpets were filthy. This house has not been properly cleaned in ages.
Merline, who is responsible for this property and the cleaning? I find this is a huge shame and disgrace to the owner.
Don’t be fooled by the pictures. The only nice room was the living room, which is why we gave one star.
I am sorry you were not happy with the property. If you were that unsatisfied, you should have contacted us regarding these issues while you were there. I remember you did tell us about the mouse. The owner hires a pest control company and this one must have eaten the bait.
Staying at this house was an incredible experience. The lake was pristine, the decor delightful, the hot tub amazing, and the surroundings were awe striking and begging to be explored. I highly recommend this location for anyone looking to get a way for a long weekend, while experiencing nature in an entirely new and inspiring way. I can't imagine having booked a house better than this one.
Yes, this is a beautiful location tucked away in the woods. We've found that everyone who stays with us just loves the property and has a wonderful time.
