First time for family - my wife, two kids,twodogs

  • 5 of 5

Our first time to rent a cabin as a family so we were very excited. We also just bought our first boat so we showed up 6 hours early for the reservation. We were ready to get on the water. We called Amz and they were very welcoming for our unexpected arrival. They allowed us to drop our luggage off inside while the cleaning crew was still working. We Also had dogs with us that needed to inspect the backyard. ( we left the dogs in the backyard while we dropped the boat off at ramp) Amz just made everything so easy for us and we will be returning soon. The cabin was very clean, had great views from the balcony upstairs. My children loved feeding the deer. It was great. I'm a horrible typer so I don't do a lot of reviews. I felt this was important because it was a big commitment from my family to rent for a whole week. The previous year we went to Florida , universal studios,etc. My kids has more fun here than the theme park! We will be back!

Great weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

A very nice place to spend the weekend, had 10 people in the home (4 adults and 6 kids all under 10).

Best selection of cookware out of all the vrbo rentals we have rented. Outdoor grill was nice although I had to clean it before we used it Friday night. Wifi, TV's, games for the patio, movies were all nice touches to keep the kids busy. Upper back patio was very nice and we enjoyed sitting out there in the evenings.

All of the beds were comfortable and the deer coming to the back fence and yard and the provided corn kept the kids busy for hours.

Washer and dryer were convenient and the renovated bathrooms were very nice and there was plenty of hot water. A lock on the basement bathroom would be a nice addition for privacy.

Nothing major but a couple of concerns:

- The leftovers from previous guests in the kitchen cabinets was odd (zip lock bags of cereal, open condiments, open bags of tostados, canned goods....) We had to move a lot to upper shelves and clean the shelves after we moved the items to make room for our stuff. An empty kitchen cabinet or two would have been appreciated.

- Upstairs a/c was great but the downstairs a/c struggled a bit with all the windows.

- Short walk to the lake but it would have been nice to have the code for the back gate to shorten the walk and/or been able to park a car/boat there. The parking in the front is very tight as previous guests have mentioned.

- Had a hard time securing the sliding door by the kitchen.

Would recommend to friends and may stay here again. Had a great weekend.

Owner's Response: Hello Bryan, I appreciate you taking the time to provide us with such detailed feedback about your stay, and glad you didn't let the small inconveniences get in the way. I am very sorry to hear that several things throughout your stay did not meet your expectations. Please note that your concerns have been passed on to our owners, and staff. You’ll be pleased to hear that I’ve have informed our housekeepers to remove previous guest perishable items so as to not make future guest uncomfortable. We have also implemented a quarterly detailed grill cleaning, and installed a new A/C unit downstairs. I’ve passed on your comments about the sliding doors, and bathroom locks directly to the owners to make the needed adjustments. We do have the combo to the back gate included in the welcome pdf, but it may have been overlooked. In any case, this is a good reminder for us to check with guests at check-in to make sure they are satisfied with the accommodations. Thanks again for the comments, and let us know if we can get the chance to earn your business in the future. Mike Amz Getaways

Awesome House!

  • 5 of 5

Rented this house for a girls getaway. There were 9 of us and we all slept very comfortably. Very clean and pictures are very accurate. Amazing deck view of the lake and tons of deer were surrounding the property that we were able to feed. Parking was a little tight but we were able to squeeze 4 vehicles into the space without having to park on the rd. Would definitely recommend this house to anyone.

Owner's Response: Dear Girls, Thank you for your positive comments. I am so glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us! I wished we'd know you had trouble parking as we have a large backyard with a long driveway available for boats, cars, and trucks. I hope your next stay and just around the corner. Call us if there is anything we can help you with. Mike General Manager

What a great place. We went as a family 5 adults and 4 children and I honestly can't tell you who had more fun. This place has it all; views , very clean, secluded yet close to everything. My children and grandchild can't stop talking about it. We will definitely be back ;)

Great place...we plan to return

  • 5 of 5

Everything was great. Clean, quiet, peaceful. It truly was a 'home' away from home experience. The beds were cozy and clean. The extra blankets were available and clean. The cabinets were stocked with all the right things for making coffee and cleaning up my messes. I enjoyed the deer and being able to feed them. The deck is amazing, I'm just bummed we didn't get to use it very much (we stayed in a colder month) but we will Definately be returning as soon as we can and maybe bring a couple of friends and just sit on that gorgeous deck to play a few rounds of dominoes or a board game or something!! (Yes...thats how I live up my vacations!)

The little shops and diners around were just calling my name to go check out. So we made it to a few, but I'll tell you the one place you must visit while your there is this fabulous little restaurant called Gennaro's. It's italian food at its finest. Order the calamari and call ahead for reservations.

I seriously cannot wait to go back to Canton Lake and I will be staying in my 'home' away from home abode it's just time for me to request some vacation at work!

Relaxing and Peaceful

Beautiful views and enjoyed all the peace away from the city. The home was cozy and clean loved the rustic atmosphere and the deer that hangout around the yard.
