Reviewer Comments:

Neighbors were nice and the place was very clean inside. The deck and exterior of the home could use some updates. We had two families stay most of the week and enjoyed every minute of it. The lake was ideal with our paddleboards we brought, and the kids could walk out far before the water was too deep. Excellent place.

This was our second time renting this house, and we just love it. The kitchen is fabulous, the fireplace is wonderful. Just the sort of place to relax and catch up with old friends. We will be back.

Reviewer Comments:

The home was very nice and good location. Big enough to accommodate a large family. Could be dusted and vacuumed better, especially the stairs and under the living room cushions and under sofa. The water softener was not filled with salt and the water smell was very obnoxious, we filled the softener with salt and told the rental company how much it cost us and we were not contacted about it or reimbursed. The outside grounds could use some cleaning up, especially the tree by laundry room door, it is in the way of entering the steps. The foliage in the yard next to the lake should be cleaned and cleared out to see the lake from the porch and house and yard. The outside porch has several boards broken that need to be repaired, we had a family member almost fall through a hole. The back steps to the porch need to be fixed, one comes up. also, upon arrival all of the outdoor trash cans were full and made it difficult to empty our trash outside. I would suggest the outdoor trash receptacles be emptied for new renters. Overall a very nice place and we enjoyed it.
