Wonderful place to get away.
Our family had a great time on our vacation at the home. The house was well maintained and comfortable. The kids joyed Kayaking and fishing. The wife and I enjoyed the peace and quiet. Everyone one was so nice, I spoke to the neighbors across the rivers everyday and everyone was helpful. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was the fallen tree had the yard in disarray but that was no problem for me.
Thank you for your review. I hope to see you again. Daniele
Very nice, well equipped, owner is great, had fun! Will definitely try to stay here again.
Thank you for your review. It's always nice that people appreciate your efforts to make their stay relaxing , comfortable, and entertaining. I look forward to you visiting again.
Not very private !
The pictures you see on the Internet must be old pictures the deck is not as nice as in the pictures ... if you want privacy not here we stayed nine nights the owner was there four nights Out of nine . The owner actually showed the rental property to somebody else while we were there she came in on announced in the backyard she also had workers over there they came in the backyard on announced . Grandkids stepped in the owners dog Doodoo. Just not much privacy if you want privacy not here . The owner should list she has a apartment above the rental property and she is always there . Overall did not feel very comfortable felt like We were always being watched . We never knew who was going to show up in the backyard!!!
Sorry you felt that way. You arrived 4 hours early and I gave you access to property. I have a lawn crew who mow. It does state in my listing that I stay in upper unit when I feel like it. My boat needed repair and machanic needed to get to water. I have all wicker furniture on the porch. Well I am sorry you didn't enjoy your visit. The children looked like they were having fun to me. They were adorable.
Oasis Away From The Desert
It's our second time at the cottage and we had another wonderful time... Everything you need and then some! Enjoyed the beach, the lake, the paddle boats, sitting outside looking at the beautiful surroundings. We live in NM so this was an oasis away from the desert! Thank you again Daniele! We will be back again!
Thank you so much for taking the time to give the lakehouse a review. Great guests like you are always so nice to see again.
Close little getaway!
My husband and I enjoyed the peace and quiet without having to drive a lot. I went out with the kayak every day . There’s a little beach a few minutes drive away for swimming. The House was comfortable and patio was great!
Thank you for submitting your review....i hope you visit again. Daniele
Perfect little house on the lake!
My family of 5 stayed in this house and we had plenty of room, and all the lake fun right outside the door. We enjoyed coffee and breakfast on the deck every morning and the access to the lake was just perfect. We didn't spend much time inside, but if we had wanted to, the house was fully stocked with games and televisions. The Wifi was periodically down while we were there, which could have been solved with a phone call to Daniele, but we were having too much fun to remember to do that. We would definitely stay here again.
Drag strip, gun range, flea marketing, garage sales, bowling Metamora 15 miles to the south has a Hunt Club that is very active. Great balloon festival in Metamora, also.
