Fun and Different

  • 4 of 5

This is a "vacation rental" and not really a "business hotel", but I like staying at unusual places when I travel on business. Do not expect little bars of soap or containers of shampoo and conditioner, or boxes of tissues. On my third day, after poking around the kitchen a bit, I did find some coffee and filters to use in the coffeemaker, which was nice. There's a wood-burning stove, but no firewood was provided. Arriving after dark on my first two nights I was wood-less, but on the third day I arrived in the afternoon and found a couple of guys selling nicely-split wood by the roadside approaching Big Canoe. Heat and hot water worked well, and there were plenty of bedlinens and blankets. Big Canoe itself is amazing - an 8,000-acre development that feels a lot like a state park of the 1970s. I had dinner one night at the Black Bear Pub located in the lakefront Clubhouse, and it was excellent.

Not as advertised

  • 1 of 5

Not as described. WiFi didn't work, didn't have two bunk-beds as the photos lead you to believe. States that hot tub and associated amenities are available, but are not included. We ended up spending an extra $35 to use a hot tub that was supposed to be included. The place is poorly maintained, the sheets had brown stains on them, the tub didn't hold water and the owner was defiant and indignant.

Not worth what we paid.

  • 2 of 5

Though I liked this home, I would not recommend for families with small children. The winding staircase inside was dangerous. We came in late in the evening, well after dark. There are no lights to light up the walk way. The steps were tricky at best. The owner has been adding updates, since the pictures and reality are different. Being that it is a cabin, there is a musty smell. The area is beautiful but there are other cabins in the area that much nicer and do not cost as much as this one did per night.
