Great property for under 17 guests. Sleeping bags would accommodate more.

  • 3 of 5

Did not get contacted by home away nor the owner for final payment. I had to contact Home Away. The day before check-in, I had not been contacted as to procedure/access. I called Mr Kessler. He said he would send me a "message" with that info. By two o'clock on the day of occupancy, I had not received any message. I texted the owner and waited a half hour. After no response, I called at three o'clock and he sent the info via text. The property is great for groups of 16 or less.

The door on the fridge would not close except if pushed. There were no trash bags for the kitchen. We had to purchase our own. The washing machine needs balancing. The bunk room only has the ceiling light and no windows. Since it is geared towards children, a night light would have been helpful. There were no hangers in the closets and the one bedroom did not have a rod. Hence living out of a suitcase was required. The bathroom next to the bunk room was full of crawling bugs. I personally killed 3 spiders, dozens of ants, dozens of another unidentified black bug, a millipede, and we even had a mouse scurry across the floor. The rocker/swivel chair in the family room is broken. The screen out of the sliding door would not stay on the track and the screen by the handle had a hole. Small, but irritating concerns.

I have tried to contacts Me Kessler since our departure on July 3, 2017 and have repeatedly been sent to voice mail. If there were other properties available for the size of our group, I would have explored further. The location was great and for the amount of time spent there, it was satisfactory.

Awesome location and home better than expected.

  • 5 of 5

We are a group of 7 to 10 guys who ride the Dunes at St Anthonys

We booked this home and it was great. The pool table was used every evening as well as some of the guys took advantage of the lake just 100 ft from the back door.

All was clean and the home was truly better than we all expected.

If all works out we will definitly book again

Great place to have a reunion! We have a large family and it was adequate for our needs!

  • 4 of 5

Overall: clean. Not sure how some of the electrical passes code, and there were a few things that didn't seem like they were professionally done. The bathroom was also being remodeled so it made it a little more difficult. However, the location and the overall amenities made up for it. We had a blast using the lake for the available water activities, and it was large enough to sleep the out of town guests we had coming in. We are definitely considering it for our reunion again in two years. The people were very nice, and they did what they could to make up for the remodeled bathroom. Pricing was reasonable. We enjoyed it and will most likely use it again.

Awesome Lake Fun / some uncomfortable beds

  • 4 of 5

We had a lot of fun at this house. The pool table / ping pong table / hot tub / lake was amazing. Big kitchen and two big dining tables worked out great. The owner was extremely helpful and really nice. Only reason why I can't give 5 stars is because a lot of the beds are very uncomfortable. They really need to update the mattresses especially in the bunk bed room and some of the other rooms.

Loved the lodge!

  • 5 of 5

We had a large family gathering to see our daughter's graduation and the lodge was the perfect house for us. There was room for everyone and all the essentials. It was super cold outside but Brett plowed the road for us and checked on us to make sure we were okay. The fireplace was great, we loved the game room and used the sled boards. The cats and the chickens were a hit too. We enjoyed the jacuzzi but our only suggestion would be a vent for the chlorine fumes. We certainly will come back, hopefully when it's warmer, so we can enjoy the outdoor activities. Thanks for everything!

Memorable week

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing week at this beautiful location. Right on the lake, with lots of fish to catch. The house was a perfect size for our group of 22. The owners were very helpful in making sure the house had all the amenities that the listing said we would have. We highly recommend this location.
