The home is magnificent a huge home with great location the owner was very helpful and our stay was a huge success with our family and friends the game room was amazing and plenty to do. We stayed inside for most of our stay. Cooking and playing games and talking.
And looking out the back windows at all the deer that passed by. Very peaceful
We had a good family reunion, however the property is somewhat misrepresented in the description. The number of people that it says that it will accommodate, includes several air mattresses (which did not inflate) and many of our guests could not sleep on air mattresses, even if they were good ones. A few people had to get a motel instead. Many of the games in the game room did not work or were missing parts. (This was a main selling point for my family!) The kitchen did not have enough dishes or silverware for all of us to eat at once. There was not enough towels for our group. Some ceiling fans were missing blades and kind of scary. The house has an ant problem and there were ant traps all around the baseboards and on counter tops. The railing in the loft area upstairs is probably not up to code, because a grandchild in our group could squeeze through the wide spaces between the beams and possibly fall through to the dining room below. We had to hang a blanket there to help prevent any accidents.
I had to convince the neighbor that we were good people when we had to look for a lost child on his property because he had called the police.
After our trip, I had a conversation with the owner and he apologized for our grievances, and comped me back $100. He was very nice, and I hate leaving bad reviews. I am hopeful that he will bring the property up to standards, because it is an awesome house and we very much enjoy that area.
We had great time here! The house is very big and open. I loved all the open space and no matter where you sat you still had good views of the lake. Very quiet and peaceful. There was 10 of us and we didn't have to worry about showers or beds, everyone one was very comfortable. We woke up one morning to see a mommy deer feeding her baby. The kids loved it. The only reason I'm giving it 4 stars and not 5 is because the game room needs updating! The air hockey machine did not work properly and the basketball hoops were ripped and the basketballs were flat. The games were kinda all over the place and some of the games peices were missing. Kids were a little disappointed with that. Other than that we would difiantly come back. Holidays would be great here. Michael responds quickly to any questions you have. Thank you for letting us stay at your place.
Our entire family (19) spent a week at this rental home. It worked out really well for our family with 10 kids 12 and under. Great bedrooms with lots of floor space for kids sleeping on the floors. The game room with pac man, air hockey, goose all, and basketball helped keep the kids entertained on our rainy days. Plenty of showers and bathrooms for all. There were lots of fun activities to do in the area. Hiking, water park (Ventura water park by eddyville) go carts. The home does not have good beach swimming on the property nor boat access. We brought a couple kayaks along and that worked well from the shoreline we did some fishing from the shoreline as well. We had a great time together. Thank you Mike for a great stay.
We spent a week with extended family at this property. The house has plenty of room for guests if you use airmatresses. There are beds for 12. Game room provided plenty of entertainment for the kids. While we were there the main AC unit went out, which the property owner seemed to address in a reasonable fashion. The big problem with the property was the lake access. There is a forest preserve on the back of the property. You cannot access the water there in any reasonable fashion except to fish. It's a 2 foot drop over tree roots into a murky cove. We were told that we could use the community dock to tie up the boat during the day. We were quickly informed by year round residents that we were not allowed to tie up for the day. This meant frequent trailoring of the boat. There was no swimming off community dock. The only swimming was 30 minutes away at the state park.
We stayed this past weekend with our whole family in order to celebrate my grandparents' 60th anniversary. It was terrific! The house is very spacious, nicely appointed, and very clean. The owner is very helpful and quick to reply to any questions. We were thrilled to see all of the wildlife just out the windows. Every day we watched deer, rabbits, water fowl, and more right in the yard. We rented a boat from the marina and it all worked out well. We look forward to going back!
