Nice enough property, customer service and communication lacking

  • 3 of 5

Prior to arriving I had innitiated contact with Bernie to pay the final installment, and after unanswered emails, I finally connected to find out how to gain access to the property. Communication was poor throughout and often required multiple attempts. I have already had more direct discussion and recieved more information with the owner of where we will stay next year than in all of my contact with Bernie and Heather.

As you arrive at the property, the front area is unkempt, however you can park your boat trailer as well as 4 cars that can all exit without moving another. Even more could be parked but they would block others.

Inside the cabin is just as it appears in the photos. It was neat and clean. There is also a washer/dryer which I do not believe is mentioned in the description. The bed in the master bedroom is comfortable. I cannot vouch for the other rooms but my kids (age 24, 27) gave them a passing grade. There are no dressers in the bedrooms that I recall, but loads of hangers and storage area in the closets. The furniture is very nice in the main area.

Outside, the front is either all concrete, decking or dock. The boat lift was out of order but there was very good protection on the dock so you will not have to use fenders when tying up. I here that this bay is the windiest part of the lake due to being the widest part. This was the case our week as the other ends of the lake were often much quieter. There is no outside fireplace, but inside there is a working fireplace. There is a very big table chairs and umbrella outside that can seat 6. Also included are 2 loungers.

A.few things were missing when we arrived (can opener, bottle opener). Otherwise it was well provisioned. We had problems with the BBQ on the first night - it would not heat up past 300 degrees. The second night, after jostling it around it would heat higher. This went back and forth during the week so there must be a blockage of some sort. I texted Bernie about these issues on day one and had no reply (I had already texted him and received a reply prior to the visit so knew that the texts were getting through). Propane later ran out and since I was expecting no response again, and my son was arriving that day, I had him bring my own tank for the rest of the week along with the other missing items.

The first night using the stove, turning it off was difficult, the second night impossible. We had to shut it off using the circuit breaker.

Lake life at its best!

  • 4 of 5

Fit our family perfectly!

6am wakeboard n ski on warm water like glass every day!

On water till breakfast at 9 on Sundeck and watch lake come alive,for us it just doesn't get any better.

Breeze picks up after 930-10am like clockwork but perfect to tube n kneeboard on,both neighbours were terrific folks,friendly

and laughing with us.The boat lift is a real hull saver and lots of room in driveway for boat trailer and 3 family vehicles.

Older House but for a summer beach house it was great,it was neat and clean and all appliances worked and ready to use.

If Canadian $ wasn't getting S kicked by the US $ we would be back in a heartbeat and have/will recommend to lake Lovers like our family!

Family Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

This fabulous house was absolutely perfect for our family vacation. Quite literally on the lake! Lots of water spots, wonderful sunsets and all the amenities. We will have all those memories for years to come. We hope to visit again!

Lovely Home!

  • 4 of 5

This home was perfect for six adults to stay overnight and then more to spend Thanksgiving there together. There was plenty of room and the scenery was phenomenal. The kitchen had everything we needed except the oven was a little slow albeit we were cooking a 23 pound turkey! We were able to watch the sun rise and set from this perfect location. I would be a little hesitant to have young children there as there is no railing along the dock that is immediately out the back sliding doors. One of my adult daughters was a little hesitant about having to sleep in a bunk bed, but it was an oversized bed so it was great-each bunk is very comportable for one adult or two children. And if you are sports lover, we were able to watch most football games on the big screen tv although it did not carry ESPN! We would definitely stay at this home again when we are back in the Bellingham area!
