Very clean, nice cabin

  • 4 of 5

I recently stayed at Lakeside Retreat with 8 other close friends for a Girls Weekend Getaway. The house was extremely clean and comfortable, and we had everything we needed and more. My only negative comment would be that we were expecting to be on a LAKE that we could swim and float around in, but instead, this home is located on a large pond. The water is probably great for fishing because it is not moving and therefore more stagnant, and a breeding ground for mosquitos. We had to go into town (Lake Lure - about 10 minute drive) to be "on the water". Tubing nearby on the Green River was a ton of fun, too!

Beautiful and relaxing

  • 4 of 5

Overall, great place. Beautiful scenery and very accommodating. The lake is nice and cool which was great for an evening swim. The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 was the lack of a landline telephone in case of emergencies(cell phone service is spotty and next to none with some providers).

Better Than Great Time Was Had By All!!

  • 5 of 5

What a great place and location. Private area so we were able to enjoy the lake and all this home had to offer in private without being accosted by noise, other vacationers, etc. The lake was fantastic for keeping the kids and adults happy and cool. This is definitely one our return locations for future visits.

Poor property and management

  • 1 of 5

We just returned from a three night stay at this property. It was supposed to be four. We left early. The property was subpar, though likely a result of poor management. The ad looked great. But when we got there we were immediately disappointed. There were dead bugs all over the basement floor. The foosball table had no foosballs. The pingpong table was broken, as were the paddles and balls (seems people have been using the pingpong balls for the foosball table, and as a result almost all of them were dented up). Most of the sand was missing from the beach, weeds were growing, and the plastic tarps were nearly all visible. The pilot light for the gas fireplace wouldn't work. We contacted the management company and they said they would send someone out the next morning. The rep arrived the next afternoon but the only issue she corrected was the pilot light. It subsequently went out again and we could not get it to come back on and stay on. She said she would have to drive 30 minutes to a Wal-Mart to get more foosballs, and made it sound like it would be a hassle. The worst part was the list of things for which the management company would charge us if we didn't comply (not fully emptying out and transporting garbage to the local dump, etc.). The list was long, and playing housekeeper at the end of the trip was an especially relaxing way to end our vacation. I just wish I could send the management company a bill for all of the things advertised that turned out not to be.

Owner's Response: Our # 1 goal is to have happy guests and happy homeowners. It is never pleasant to find out that anyone is disappointed or did not enjoy the property they reserved. We appreciate the opportunity to respond to some of the issues above so future guests can make an informed decision about renting this property. Regarding dead bugs, we believe you are talking about the basement garage floor, while it is swept or blown out, it is a garage and difficult to keep out occasional pests. We do not advertise this home as having a ping pong table at all. We have replaced the old pool table, that would accommodate the ping pong table, with a much nicer and more expensive one (not yet in pictures). No ping pong table shown in photos or in written description. Missing Foos balls; yes, perhaps they were lost from the previous reservation and we overlooked accounting for them and we apologize. Regarding sand, we had two major rain storms just prior to your, we did not realize the sand washed away into the lake but did contact the home owner immediately and he contacted his service person and asked that they come the next morning to remove exposed plastic and rake entire area smooth so it would be nicer for you. We did send a service person the next morning and in fact she drove there three times but no one answered the door the first two visits. On the third visit she lit the gas logs, looked in the Foosball table and found one ball (one ball is all you use in Foosball) and provided a brand new package of ping pong balls for the kids to use as well. We would like to clarify a few additional things; we are in a MAJOR heat wave and setting record high temperatures so it isn't very kind to run the air conditioner full blast and the gas heating logs at the same time. Upon your departure we found - garbage under the kitchen sink, urine on the Futon, ping pong balls including new ones smashed flat, gas grill was deep cleaned prior to arrival but was left very greasy and dirty, owners boxes and supplies in garage were all opened and all over the place and a gallon can of paint was opened and left open, thank goodness it was not spilled. Lakeside Retreat is one of our most popular homes and many guests have enjoyed their stay and have returned for repeat visits, often 2 and 3 times. We apologize you did not enjoy your stay.
