What an unbelievably peaceful and beautiful place to stay. The cottage is comfortable, clean and well maintained. The view is gorgeous, and the sunsets are spectacular. There is a large creek that separates you from one set of neighbors (who are a retired couple that are very quiet) and the property on the other side is for sale, not currently occupied, and adjoins State land. In other words, it is like you have a private retreat. We cannot imagine wanting anything more for a vacation spot.
Regarding to the two negative reviews: our family has been staying at this property for many years, and has never encountered a problem. We have never been attacked by bugs, never smelled urine in the cottage, and always have found the property to be clean. Almost all of the windows are new and have screens (and all of them open), fans have consistently been provided, and have never noticed any odors. Anywhere. Our most recent stay was from late September until early October 2015, and there were no stains on any of the carpeting. At different occasions during our stay, four family members fell asleep while watching television and the sectional did not come apart. In all the years that we have stayed at the cottage, we have never found food in the yard or bugs in the cottage, and there have always been ample cleaning supplies. And this year, the owners generously provided campfire wood. If you are fortunate enough to find a cottage where you are allowed to bring your dogs (with food allergies), a reasonable person would watch over them to ensure that there was nothing that would make them sick. We can only wonder, were the complaints mentioned in the negative reviews initially made in the hope of receiving a discount, and when that proved unsuccessful, put on VRBO to be mean-spirited? From what our experiences have been staying at this property, it is the only conclusion we can draw.
It’s a great place, and the owners are very caring people. Do yourself a favor, and ignore the bad reviews from the summer of 2015-you won’t regret it!
We were nearly scared away because of a bad review.
Thank goodness that we stayed. This cottage has the best view on the lake.
The sunsets are incredible. The cottage is clean and well maintained. The owner was very helpful and made this family vacation one of our best. The fishing was fantastic!! My 10 year old son finally caught the big one. We are looking forward to staying here again next year.
When we arrived at this property when entering the home the home was infested with flies also cobwebs in the corners and huge spiders when looking around we noticed that the windows did not have screens in them two windows in living room one of the windows in the bedroom the house had a very foul smell to it from being closed up with no air circulation we did end up finding two small screens that we were able to put into the two windows in the living room as far as the window in the one bedroom my daughter had gotten bitten on her back and she would not open the windows because she was afraid of spiders getting the bathroom toilet was very disgustingly dirty I had to bleach and scrub that very strong urine smell throughout the bathroom and the one bedroom off the front porch upon being there for a few days we were told that the previous tenants were a bunch of Amish kids that had been there on the Ramadan and had made a mess of the place I also have a small dog that has food allergies upon taking her outside I noticed her eating something it was shrimp shells all over the yard she ended up getting sick the cabinet in the kitchen when I open that I noticed something spilled all over the counter I don't know if it was sugar or if it was salt I just covered it up with a napkin, I shouldn't have to come in and clean before we could stay which I had to do we ended up having to go and buy fly strips and ant spray $60 on fans to get air through the house to deal with the smell the condition of the furniture in the living room were unacceptable the sectional was very uncomfortable had huge rips in the back of the couch cushions they didn't even zip anymore the couch would not stay together there was a pleather recliner in the living room which tilted to the side altogetherspace was very miserable about the only nice thing about the whole thing was the water and the view. The biggest thing for me was when I went into the bedroom with the twin bed the linens on the bed had a very foul smell to them immediately ripped it off that's when I noticed that the box spring was all ripped up the mattress was extremely thin and they put a piece of foam on top very uncomfortable the refrigerator leak water the first five nights we were there we barely had any hot water I'm going to leave it at that I had a very miserable poor stay. The brother showed up we addressed to him and he told us he was maintenance we would have to take it up with his brother.
