Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

I have never been disappointed staying here.The owner Mike is on top of everything.You need something or forget something - he will get it for you quickly.The house has plenty of room to move around in and is kept immaculate.HUGE TV.

The backyard is perfect - fenced in for pets if you have - BBQ grill - a very big fiire pit with wood to burn - wont have to buy .General store down the road .

Its perfect for us .We've been here numerous times (1st review) and have NEVER been dissappointed.

Lake just up the road - great house , location and owner!

We will be back again sometime and that is why this is our Home Away from Home!

GREAT GETAWAY IN HIGHLAND LAKES

  • 4 of 5

This is a nice cottage with a big, fenced in back yard. My 4 poodles particularly liked the latter, which included a groundhog under the shed. We did not get a chance to see the many pristine lakes around here, but were supplied with badges and a parking permit. The owner has been tremendously helpful and responsive, although no significant problems were encountered. I did read one very negative review--that dude must be off his rocker!

Great place to stay

  • 4 of 5

I took my wife, 2 tweens, and our lab for a weekend ski trip and stayed at the cottage. Perfect size for us, big fenced-in backyard for our dog to roam around worry-free, and only minutes to the slopes. Owner was very responsive to an issue with the sheets which were resolved promptly.

Perfect place to stay for Mtn Creek skiing

  • 5 of 5

Cozy cottage in an ideal location for skiing at Mountain Creek. Downtown Vernon is just five minutes away. Rustic and not too fancy, it's perfect for families. The cottage contains all the comforts of home. Mike was a great host. Very attentive and quick to respond to our questions or requests.

Nice cottage but nit picky, unreasonable management

  • 3 of 5

The cottage is nice and in a pleasant location, a little dated. The TV and gaming setup is nice. Too many nit picking incidents marred the stay: 20 page list of rules that put you on edge, heat is controlled remotely and kept low (66 overnight is way too cold for an old, drafty home), nickel and diming with coin laundry, charged for an open window (even though it was in the teens and we never opened a window), accused by the property manager, Polly, of creating a fire hazard with incense when the powder was from our baby...ridiculous stuff. The heat went out on our last night at about 1am and went to 50 with our infant child exposed. We left early as it was way too cold then were refused any compensation for the extreme inconvenience. What should have been a pleasant stay was just too stressful with all the nit picking, boarding school rules and false accusations.
