This really a getaway from it all

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful view. Kinda old but still great hot tub, just make sure you turn it up to your required temp at least 30 minutes before you want to use it. Comfy bed, I slept very well. No cell phone reception (for AT&T) which for me was a total PLUS PLUS but free wifi :). Oh and it has directTV with more than local stations which was good for some relaxing late night binge watching. And say hi to the local swan...I wanted to give him a bath ;) Wish I could've stayed longer.

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed your stay, especially the hot tub! Our team keeps our hot tubs, clean and ready to enjoy. Yes! You can adjust the temperature to you liking, too. Cell reception isn't very good, texting works best. This place also has a land line anyone can forward their cell phone so that no calls are missed. Come on and book your dates here! Enjoy that much deserved getaway that won't break the piggy bank.

The mobile home was small, not large enough for a family of four.

  • 3 of 5

Our children are young adults. They were miserable because the sleeper sofa was worn completely out. They had no where to sleep for 3 nights. The lot and lake was perfect. The lake front deck was nice, but could be better if a door, and screen for small children and small dogs to enjoy. The hot tub, needs some work, the jets appeared to be clogged with pine needles. The steps to the hot tub are not safe. If you only have two people staying; the master bed was very comfy and clean. We loved the fire pit, and the dock. This would be a better rental if some updates were made. Cleaning crew could do a better job. We removed cob webs from each corner and walls in the living room.

Owner's Response: Four adults in a small one bedroom mobile home is a tight squeeze especially during the winter months when everyone is inside more.This place is better suited for just a couple or a couple with “ little kids” not grown children who are adult size. It’s important to review the square footage advertised so you rent a place that has enough room for everyone. Next door there is a two bedroom this family could have moved to that would have been much more comfortable. Several of the cabins around have our sign and participate in our rental program. Had any member of our team been contacted we would have moved them. When the lid is left off the hot tub the pine needles will blow in. Keep the hot tub cover on when not in use to help keep the needles out. And the loose step fixed. We regularly spray for bugs, spiders etc ..Out here in the woods, on the water guests can expect a few insects. Thanks for letting us know about these issues so that they could be addressed for future guests. Glad this guest found the master bedroom comfortable and clean and enjoyed the fire pit and dock. A big apologize to these adults children for the sleepless nights. Next time consider renting a larger place, at least 2 bedrooms for a party with 4 adults and not list them as children on a reservation since they are adult size. Grown children deserve their own bed and enough room to be comfortable.

Everything was great!! We were able to fish, relax, grill out, rest, use the canoe and never leave.

  • 4 of 5

We would highly reccommend this to anyone looking to escape to the woods/lake. Beautiful scenery, relaxing atmosphere, over all a great experience,(We brought hammovksin hopes of hanging them and napping, but the trees were too far apart but it happens.) We have no complaints at all!!

Great time

  • 5 of 5

We had a great trip from the time we got there from to the time we left. The internet is not very reliable but that is not why you are there. We had a fire each night and s'mores came out great.

Had a wonderful time!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time exploring in the canoe, floating in the inflatable tubes we'd brought, enjoying the hot tub, reading on the deck, and grilling most of our meals. We were happy to be able to bring our three dogs with us as well—much better than having to kennel them. It was a nice, peaceful, quiet vacation. We would rent this place again.
