The house and yard were clean and well taken care of. Plenty of room for a large crowd. We loved all the yard games and hammocks. Really close to both Torch, Elk, and Skegamog lake. I will definitely be going back.

Reviewer Comments:

We had 17 family members (9 of them being children) none of us ever felt crowded. The children had endless things to do, never once did any of them say " Im bored" We had day trips planned, location seemed pretty central. We all agreed if we ever wanted to go back to this area we would definitely choose this rental again.

Reviewer Comments:

We had a great time at the Great Escape. The property itself kept everyone occupied, especially the kids. The Eagle cabin was perfect for the eight grandkids. The house was clean, the kitchen was very functional, and the gas grill was brand new. The only things I would change would be 1) put a showerhead in the 2nd upstairs bath, and 2) I wish it was closer to the water. 0.5 mile walk. Great stay!

Owner's Response: We are glad you had a great stay and will check on the shower head and wish we could make the home closer to the water but that one is impossible :) Hope you will be back again to stay with us soon!

Reviewer Comments:

We did enjoy staying at the Lake Skegamog house. It gave us the opportunity to socialize together over morning coffee on the porch and breakfast before going off for our wedding activities. We did get to eat at Pearl's in Elk Rapids and at Short's Brewery in Bellaire . We highly recommend both. Time at the beach and wine tasting rounded out the time that we had left over from the wedding. The house location was an advantage for these activities. Our only disappointment was that we were led to believe that there were 2 queen beds in the main house and there was only one. We had to rearrange sleeping asignments because of this.
