Fun Times!

  • 4 of 5

Our extended family stayed at the cabin at the beginning of September. We had a great time visiting, playing games, catching fish and swimming at the lake. It was a big enough space to accommodate 12 of us. They only thing I was a little disappointed in was that the cabin could have been cleaner when we showed up. However, it wasn't bad enough to keep me away. I would book again.

Excellent cabin by the lake

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Bud's Caprino family cabin for three nights recently for the big total solar eclipse event, and it couldn't have been better. The cabin is spacious, comfortable, and fully stocked with everything you could need to sleep, cook, and enjoy yourself here. Big comfortable bedrooms plus other loft sleeping options. Wonderful great room to relax on sofas, chairs, or enjoy a group meal around the long dining table, wide wraparound deck with lake and sunset views. It has everything! Plus a fun game room in the basement and toys for the kids. BBQ for outdoor grilling, and a convenient path to access the lakeshore. Easy walking distance to town, and plenty of personal touches that made it feel like a real home. Bud and his family are a pleasure to work with, and my security deposit was returned within days of our departure. This is a beautiful home and is completely as advertised. I would love to stay here again. Thank you, Bud!

Can't wait to return in 2018

  • 5 of 5

Our Family had the best time at this cabin. Plenty of room for our large group. The kitchen was so well stocked with everything you could possibly need or want. The lake is just right down a short path. We had the whole beach to ourselves. We loved it so much that we are renting this cabin every summer for our Family get together. The owners were great to work with and I can't wait to return to the Caprino Cabin in 2018.

Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us.

It's a Winner!

  • 5 of 5

We booked this cabin for our family reunion. It was incredible! The kitchen, laundry room, and linen closet were well-stocked with extra crock pots, kitchen utensils, spices, dry goods, laundry detergent, paper goods, medical supplies, towels and bed linens. The spacious family room, upstairs loft, game room, wrap around porch and outdoor fire pit were ideal for our group of 15 people. We especially loved our private access to the water front where the kids went wading and we swapped out jet ski riders. The cabin has a pack and play, high chair, baby gate, and movable play yard for littles, as well as lots of toys both indoor and outdoor. There's even a swing under the balcony. The owner helpfully answered all of our questions and went the extra mile to make sure we had a great experience. Highly recommend this cabin!

Mixed review

  • 4 of 5

The positive. The cabin, yard and view are beautiful. The cabin comfortably slept our large group. Even though the owner "Bud" is in California, he is easy to work with and prompt to reply.

The negative. Bud needs to FIRE his housekeeper. We put down a $300 cleaning deposit and showed up to a "tidy" but overall dirty cabin. The cabin looked as if it hadn't been dusted in ages. The floors needed swept and mopped. The couches and large area rug were COVERED in dog hair. All table surfaces were grimy. We cleaned the cabin and left it 1,000 cleaner then what we found it, not sure yet whether or not I'll get my deposit refunded. The basement was freezing (you are not allowed to use the heater, nor any space heater), the basement is where the games are located so the kids had to wait until it warmed up to play down there. Game tables are old and parts are being held together with duct tape, but still functional.

Overall, we had a wonderful time and made wonderful memories. I would rent this cabin again, but hope Bud does something about the housekeeping.
