The lake part of this place is awesome. Beautiful back deck and it was great being right on the water. But this is the kind of place you have to get used to in order to love... the master bath heats itself with the water heater pipes in the floor and the holding tank's pump fires up every time someone uses water, so the earliest risers should get the master bedroom because the pump is noisy. The hostess was polite and solicitous once we contacted her by phone the day before we were supposed to come in. The VRBO 'check-in app' had no info or details. I couldn't give 5 stars for cleanliness because even though the inside was nice and clean, the spiders and lake flies had taken over the windows. The biggest sadness was when I tried to contact the owner 2 months before our reservation to see if she was willing to re-list it because more than half of our crew dropped out due to a death in the family. Crickets. It does say that it is a strict cancellation policy - but WOW... so strict that she wouldn't even respond to me. All I wanted was for it to be relisted and refund me only if someone else could take it. There was NO risk for her because she already had all my money. Sad.
Our family found this property to be perfect. We have a cottage four doors down so the walk down the beach was very convenient. The cottage was quiet, clean, and comnfortable.
The property was as described and fit our families needs very well. If I had any complaints it would be with VRBO and when they charge. I reserved early February for a late June rental and the funds were removed from my credit card as soon as I hit the reserve button.
Great little beach house!
Great location, beautiful lake. It was very nostalgic for me because this reminded me of my family lake house.
Excellent stay at this beautiful cottage
My group thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this well-maintained and nicely furnished cottage. The owners were accessible as needed and offered us extras that were not mentioned in the listing (use of kayaks) which was much appreciated. Two indoor porches, a sizable living room and a large deck on the lake side meant there was plenty of room for all of us to spread out. I love Lake Melissa and am very happy to have had the opportunity to rent this cottage.
Beautiful Lake Lot, Cozy Cottage, lots to like...
We stayed here for a few days while visiting family in Fargo. Pre-arrival we found the owners/managers very easy to work with. The location was great, within a hours drive of Fargo and close to Detroit Lakes for grocery shopping, etc. The property was beautiful and had averything we needed. The lot was level with a beautiful grassy area to lounge/play games. The cottage had plenty of space and everything worked. Our bed was great. The cottage is in need of some cosmetic updates/repairs and has a slight smell of an older lake cottage, which is what it is, so not a surprise. We would absolutely stay here again.
