Great family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful, relaxing vacation while staying at the lake house. The owners are very attentive and were very quick to fix an AC problem. They have a beautiful home and it is fully equipped with everything a family needs. The lake views from all angles of the house was amazing. It easily accommodated our family of 6 adults and 1 teen. The game room provided lots of opportunity for family/sibling rivalry! It is centrally located with grocery stores and attractions pretty close by. We had a wonderful week!

Wonderful, exceeded expectations!

  • 5 of 5

We had wonderful family at this lovely lakefront house. The owners are very nice people and you can tell that from how they take care of the property. It was super clean, everything was working and location and setting was superb. The pictures don't do justice to this house, it is really much better than it is seen in the pictures posted. The kitchen is fully equipped, basement provides excellent entertainment for the kids (Ping-Pong, pool, fussball and air-hocky), the house is full of light and warmth. We definitely want to come back and highly recommend this to anyone (unless your party is huge, like over 10+ people).

Great for two or three families

  • 4 of 5

My family of nine had a lovely stay at this house. We had six adults and three children for six days, and everyone had plenty of space. In fact, I'd say it was made for a family just this size, plus one infant (there's a pack-n-play in one of the closets, plus a high chair and changing table on the premises). We met the owner when we got there, and he was very nice. He showed us around and was very accommodating.

My only nit is that it could have been a little cleaner. I think the cleaning people had been there, but then with the owner staying overnight in preparation for our arrival, things got a little messy (crumbs on the counter and whatnot). The fridge and freezer were large and mostly empty but in need of washing. Also, the basement floor was very dusty. It's concrete and doesn't look like it can be cleaned properly, so all that dust came up to the rest of the house. My mom has emphysema, so we needed to mop the main floor and second level to help with the dust. Once we did that (and asked the kids to wear their shoes in the basement), the floors were better.

We caught a ton of fish off the dock: perch, bass, crappy, sunnies, and bullheads. We also enjoyed the paddle boat and row boat -- although the pins for the row boat need to be replaced soon.

We used both pools in the community, and they were very nice. Unfortunately, we didn't have warm enough weather for the beach, but we did get to Camel Beach waterpark one day, and that was a blast. It's a short drive, but traffic can get backed up, so try to arrive early!

It's clear that this couple has paid a lot of attention to detail and wants to do everything to make your stay nice. Before we arrived, I asked whether the house had a crockpot and a large table, so we could eat outside. It seems they went right out and bought both things just for our stay. I'm not sure if that's true, but they were there when we got there!

The appliances, cookware, dishes, and flatware were also good quality and plentiful. We really appreciated the children's sippy cups that are available as well. This is a very child-friendly place!

Speaking of kids, ours spend HOURS in the basement playing ping ping, air hockey, pool, and Foosball. We were very grateful for all the games on the two rainy days we had. Everyone had a great time, and we hope to come back soon!

Owner's Response: this was a very good review, however the comments on cleanliness were over the top. the house was professionally cleaned, they missed the basement, it was a little dusty, concrete floor. however due to a medical condition, the family was hypersensitive to dust and generally overacted to cleanliness. Actually, we advertise our rental as spotless and it is. the lodge is only 6 years old , looks new and you'll find it super clean, as others have confirmed. most importantly, they had a great vacation

Wonderful vacation home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 3 nights over memorial day weekend. We were two families both with a young kid and a baby. This is a true home away from home. It is apparent that the owners cared for and thought on each and every detail of this beautiful home, starting from a well equipped kitchen (loved the waffle maker), through ping-pong/fussball/air-hocky tables in the basement, to a pedal boat with life jackets for all sizes and weights. The place was 100% ready for us: spotless clean, 2 gas tanks for the grill on the fabulous porch, and caring owners that came to meet us and made sure we find everything we need.

We have been using VRBO for at least 5 years now, multiple times a year, and this is definitely one of our favorite rentals so far.

Beautiful house, helpful owners, great location

  • 5 of 5

This house is more beautiful than the pictures show, extremely well maintained and clean. Lots of extra blankets and towels (important for a crowd). Owner was kind enough to bring in a ping-Pong table, pool table and foosball table in the unfinished basement, so we enjoyed one day of relaxing after two days of skiing (Camelback and Jack Frost). Would love to visit in the summer since the house is surrounded on three sides by the lake and the views are gorgeous.
