Guestbook comments from the manager

Lovely place for our family gathering we loved the water trampoline and other water crafts. The hot tub was really nice as we had some chilly weather during our week. Swimming across the lake was also very fun.

Perfect weekend getaway for a group!

  • 5 of 5

We came with a group of 16 friends and had an amazing time at this cabin! There was plenty of room for all of us, and the amenities were fantastic. We spent most of our time enjoying the water trampoline, kayak, canoes, fire pit, and jacuzzi. We barbecued for all of our meals and enjoyed the deck and outdoor areas. I would HIGHLY recommend this cabin to anyone looking for a nice, relaxing weekend getaway.

Thank You!!!

  • 5 of 5

I NEVER write reviews but I feel I have to share how wonderful our stay was because of the place and the excellent service we received!!! The place was clean the the kitchen is very well stocked. We had a freak accident our first night, a light fixture fell and smashed in one of the bedrooms. Bonnie came over at 10:30 at night to clean it up. She was so sweet. We mentioned that we may need a little more toilet paper. Bonnie came the next morning with the toilet paper and fresh baked cookies! We can't wait to come back in summer when we can enjoy the lake and hot tub!

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have stayed in this cabin and we absolutely love it! It is very well equipped and there is plenty of room for our extended family. After swimming and kayaking you can cozy up to a campfire, take a dip in the hot tub or just relax on the deck and enjoy the beautiful surroundings. This is an excellent property for friends and families to gather and spend quality time together.

Small lot, small bedrooms

  • 3 of 5

The lake was exceptionally clear and nice for swimming and boating. Our family had a great time here. We loved the ping pong table, boats, and trampoline. However, there were some issues with the property that prospective renters should be aware of. First, this is a larger house that shares a lot with another large house. The two of them together had a normal amount of lake frontage for a single home. This was not a problem until the weekend, when 14 men in their early 20s, along with a few wives or girlfriends, arrived. They weren't trying to be loud but their firepit and backyard are mere feet away from the deck and every word of their conversation could be heard, even from inside the house, unless we closed the doors and windows. At night, they were playing music in the house and every time they opened the door loud music blasted forth for several minutes. This went on until 3 AM; earplugs didn't help. As a result I came back from my vacation not feeling rested, but frazzled and exhausted. It was also unclear to the neighbors which lake toys did and did not belong to them, and we didn't want them using the trampoline or boats (because we would be responsible for damage). Their drinking and using a ski boat and jet-ski very close to our dock, where kids were swimming, was a safety concern.

The house itself felt cramped. The bedrooms are very small and it's clear the owners are trying to cram the maximum amount of sleeping spaces into the house to maximize rent. There aren't enough hooks or places to store clothes; there was one dresser in a room that is supposed to sleep four. If this house had all the bedrooms filled there isn't enough space to store everyone's stuff, or enough space in the kitchen to store food and cook for so many people. At most we had ten adults and six kids staying here. One room has five sleeping spaces and just a closet; no dresser, hooks, or shelves. The room wasn't big enough to get the trundle bed out and my sister tripped over it in the night, getting badly bruised in the process. I think 10-12 people could stay here quite comfortably, but it is going to be crowded with any more than that. Be cautious about staying on a weekend, unless you enjoy a fraternity-party atmosphere. The lake is small too, and there can be many ski boats going round and round all weekend, plus a boy scout camp's swimming beach not far from the house.

Owner's Response: The neighbors share a long driveway going back to the 2 completely separate lots. The lot on this lake is heavily wooded with no lawn areas; however there is a flat area off of the lower patio near the fire pit that works well for yard games. Boating hours on Big Hills Lake are 9:30 am – 5:30 pm daily leaving for quiet evenings of paddle boating, canoeing, kayaking and such. This is the 1st time we have had any neighbor issues in the 5 years we have been renting this popular lodge. The neighbor’s college age and older kids came up with some friends over the weekend; I am sure for this guest after having the 1st 5 nights of their stay with no neighbors next door, getting used to having neighbors was a bit hard. I talked with our guest the day after their departure and was assured by our guest’s wife that the neighbors weren’t a bother; they were more concerned that the neighbors used the water trampoline and paddle-boat belonging to our property.... I completely understand their concern, and this has already been addressed with the neighbors and won’t happen again. If I had been made aware of this issue when it happened, it would have been taken care of immediately. We take great pride in taking care of guests concerns quickly, always addressing any issues immediately. This guest called earlier in the week because the DVD player was not working and we delivered a new one within a few hours. I only wish they would have chosen to call about this concern. In the 5 years of renting this very popular property this is the 1st complaint I have had. We have many repeat guests each year, however every guest arrives with different expectations and unfortunately it seems that we did not meet this guests expectations in a few areas and I am so sorry for that.
