Excellent! 4.6/5 -
(7 traveler reviews)

average rating of 4.571429 based on 7 reviews

We really liked the little apartment on Mirror Lake.

  • 4 of 5

It felt rustic and quaint when we walked in the door and quickly became very comfortable. It was conveniently located since it is in the center of downtown and surrounded by good restaurants. We liked watching the ice skaters on the lake and had great views of the fireworks across the lake one night. My husband watched a fabulous sunrise one morning. Parking was a bit of a hassle but we made it work (luckily the tickets aren't super expensive if you don't read the signs well, our fault). We did not cook much and when we did we found everything we needed. The mattress is noisy as was mentioned before; we still slept okay. The owner was very friendly and helpful and it was well priced. We would definitely stay there again if we ever went back.

Great Location in the heart of it all!

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful location on the lake and in the middle of town! Great for our hockey time in LP. The place was great but could use some more kitchen items (pots, pans, more forks knives...some basics). We hope to be back every year! Thanks!

Amazing !!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this apartment for 5 days. 2 adults and 2 teenagers. It was perfect! The location is ideal - right in the middle of town with everything just outside your front door - shops, restaurants, Olympic venues. Despite the proximity to everything, the place is quiet. By far, the best thing about this apartment is that it is lakefront. You have your own dock in the backyard. We watched the sunrise every morning over the lake and mountains. It was amazing. You can swim, rent paddle boards & kayaks and hike. The owner, Willie, is great too. A great experience! We would rent here again!

Ironman weekend

  • 5 of 5

Excellent location! Centrally located. (although parking does not come with the unit) Having 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, full kitchen, and living area made the stay more than comfortable. The Lean-to by the dock was a perfect place to nap or have a late light glass of wine and enjoy the sights on the lake.The unit was very clean and included most things you needed for a comfortable stay. You could also sit on the dock and watch the swim portion of the Triathlon!

The owner was very nice and accommodating. The description by the owner and the pictures on-line were representative of the unit.

The only area of suggested improvement would be the noisy beds. A bit of a challenge for light sleepers.

Our summer vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four stayed here for a week in August, and we loved it. We are always looking for the 'perfect' vacation rental that is affordable too. This was just right for our family. The rental was roomy enough for two adults and two teenagers. The property is amazingly private for being right in town. We walked to dinner most nights. While not luxurious, the rental is very comfortable and had everything we needed. The kitchen is small but manageable -- we cooked in comfortably a couple of nights and augmented our meals from the ample options a short walk from the front door.

The owner was very accessible and helpful. He is very knowledgeable about the area and had good suggestions. We're planning a return trip.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

I stayed with two friends at this apartment this summer. The overall experience was good but it is worth noting some of the aspects that could be improved as well. First the positives - The location is excellent, right in the middle of town. You emerge from your door, right next to the owner's antique shop and you are next to the Olympic arena and in the midst of shops and restaurants. It is hard to imagine anything more convenient, to the town at least. The apartment has one bedroom up in the middle level and two bedrooms down on the lowest one. There is a living room and a small kitchen as well. The main bathroom is on the middle level but there is a small one below as well. While not fancy, there was plenty of space and it was comfortable. The best feature of the property, however, is the little dock out back on Mirror Lake. We spent a lot of time out there swimming and soaking in the fantastic atmosphere. It was awesome. There is a lean-to out there should need to get out of the sun, but we never used it.

All that said, there were a few things that took away from the experience. Worth noting are the beds. The beds are new, according to the owner, and of good quality. However, they are very noisy and I woke myself up rolling over each night. I told this to the owner and he said he would fix it. If I were to rent again, I would make sure of that. Also, the beds are short. Plenty wide but they are short and I found I had to sleep diagonally. I'm 6'2" and if you are any taller than that, it could be an issue. There is no parking there, so you need to park on the street or in the municipal parking lot. It isn't far but it isn't right outside either. The overall decor is a hodgepodge which is probably in keeping with the owners business. It doesn't look that well put together and so you won't be wowed when you walk in. I'm not sure that's important, though, since the great location made us want to be outside all the time.

In the end, I gave this 4 stars. The location and value overwhelmed, for me, the negatives in a big way. We had a great time on the trip and, if the beds were fixed, would certainly rent again.
