Our experience was great!

  • 5 of 5

The house was very easy to find. The house was very clean and nice. We had 7 adults and two babies, the bedrooms on the main floor were perfect for the two families with a baby. The basement had a queen size bed and a bunk bed that had a full size on the bottom and twin on top. Jeff, our owner was very easy to contact when questions would arise. Beach is just a couple of miles down the road. Good restaurants, Dirty Turtle, Buckhorn Cafe and Shipwreck Bay were just a few. I would rent this house again.

Not as described

  • 1 of 5

There was food in the refrigerator from the last people. The TV channels did not work and the owner didn't know why. There was a bucket under the sink that was collecting water from the leaky garbage disposal so we could not use one side of the sink. The basement was ice cold and that's where our third couple had to sleep which was a very uncomfortable mattress and hard. The games downstairs did not have all the pieces or paddles that were broken and no net for the ping pong table. There were only a few plastic chairs to sit on on the porch which were moldy. The grill was so filthy we did not use it.

Owner's Response: Well this is pretty harsh... I do have one question...Why are you writing such a petty negative review almost 4 months after your stay at 1am? I do remember this guest and had trouble from the start. Constantly complaining about nothing... having to sit on plastic chairs outside? ping pong paddle broken? I assure you we take a lot of pride in this property. It is very clean and is exactly as pictured. I should also point out that we spent $2000 on 3 brand new mattresses for the house just before your stay. Hope you have a better day mam.

Relaxing weekend with girlfriends!

It was a great weekend to spend in New Lisbon and at this place. Enough space for all of us and close enough to the lake to enjoy the beach on a great weekend.

Disappointed ... . Expected more!

  • 2 of 5

For the amount we paid, we expected the cottage to be nicer and cleaner! Can't believe we paid a high cleaning fee to find the place not very clean upon our arrival. Oven, stove top, countertops and refrigerator were dirty along with some of the dishes and silverware in the cupboards. Our bedsheets were dirty so we had to launder them ourselves. It was an inconvenience having the kitchen sink leaking from the start, only being able to use one half of the sink and not being able to use the dishwasher and disposal for the weekend! Was upsetting to pay an additional fee for the 7th and 8th guest. The 4 basement guests got little sleep because of the noise from the squeaky floors above, the uncomfortable bed, having no curtains on the windows to darken the room, and no privacy or sound barriers (doors to close) from the upstairs.The deck and yard space were great and we enjoyed the fire pit too!

Owner's Response: Bonnie, I will address your issues one at time because I remember your situation clearly. You wrote this review after I had to file a small $109 claim because you or your guests broke the garbage disposal, not a big deal. #1 We stayed during the week before 4th of July and I assure you we take a lot of pride in our work and home and the house was exceptionally clean. #2 "re amount you paid. You had 8 people stay during 4th of July weekend and saw pictures and knew the rate so i am not sure why you would complain about this. #3 bedsheets dirty is just absolutely fiction. you actually where the first to sleep on BRAND NEW mattresses. We constantly buy new bedding. #4 Squeaky floors? This is a new construction home #5 no blinds in the basement? Thank you for the positive compliments on the yard and deck! We also had a very large pile of firewood for you to burn.

Spacious relaxing Chalet

  • 5 of 5

We loved this place! This home was a great place for our girls weekend. The deck is wonderful, nice fire pit with enough wood. The house is clean and very well kept. Only wish is that there would be a dumpster available. Not fun trying to drive 2 hours home with trash in the car.

Owner's Response: Thank you!!! Regarding the garbage... this is pretty standard for vacationing in northern Wisconsin. Garbage service is not offered and if we did get a dumpster it would attract more bears raccoons mice coyotes wolves and other varmints. I burn the paper and use small grocery stores bags that I can easily dispose of at gas stations and other places I spend money at. Ask first though... thanks again it was a pleasure working with you
