Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
We have a very large group ( 20) so it is hard to find a place that fits our needs.This was beautiful and we were able to spread out and not feel cramped. Some places say they can fit 20 but there are not always beds for all the guests. This fit the bill for us. The beach was shallow for our small children which was good but you can not see it from the house.We thought this was a positive so they didn’t wander off to the beach without us knowing. Negative: There was a problem with the cooling system in the carriage house and I did call the number they suggested but didn’t hear back until the next day. By that time our guests had left. They said they would address it. Also, we had several wasp or something like that in both the main house and carriage house. They need to find the nest although we looked ourselves and never found it.
Thanks for the review! We are always on the lookout for the nests at our properties. Most rural homes deal with wasp nests outside and around property, especially those with high roof eaves like this one. We do check for them twice a month and promptly spray them when they develop. There are no nests inside the home, but wasps/mosquitos/asian beetles do occasionally get in when there are several guests coming and going throughout their stay. We have regular pest control to monitor the wasps and other pests that are common to rural properties. We also had the cooling system checked by our service provider and found that the issue was simply closed vents. Vents have been opened and AC is working fine. We are happy you enjoyed your stay.
Great—but no water in the carriage house in the winter
We had a great time and the property was beautiful. We were disappointed to find that the water was shut off to the apartment above the garage. We had a large group and needed to use that area for sleeping. Not having a working bathroom was a big inconvenience—it would have been nice to have been told in advance.
Thank you for your review, we are happy to hear you had a great time and liked the property. I want to apologize for the miscommunication on the water in the carriage house. Due to the cold temperatures we were having trouble with the water lines going to the carriage house and our maintenance staff made the decision to shut off the water so the pipes wouldn't freeze. This happened just prior to your stay and they didn't realize we had a renter coming in, therefore I didn't know and wasn't able to let you know prior to arrival. We are working to find a permanent solution to this problem.
The property was just OK for the price
Had a few mechanical issues. Door handles on the screened in porch have broken locks. TV and fireplace remotes are confusing to use. Can see there's been some wear and tear. Plenty of space for the 15 of us on our yearly girls getaway.
Family reunion fun
Your home is perfect for family, can enjoy the noise or get away from the chaos. The lake is a short distance from the house but by having the golf cart we could transport the older generation, for a boat ride or fishing. The sunsets were fabulous and with the full moon we had the best evening by the fire. We had an obstacle course for the kids, with lawn games and scavenger hunt, all made possible by the beautiful large yard, basketball court, ping pong table, and game room upstairs. Enjoyed the deck for our meals and the dining room table for our card games. It was a great setting, biked into Nisswa for morning coffee, Baxter for swimming at Whippie beach. We also enjoyed the sand bar on Long Lake for swimming. Perfect spot!!!
