When you are with friends, small glitches don't ruin the fun times together, though if people cannot sleep due to the heat inside the home, people are not very rested the next day. When we arrived at the cabin, after getting lost using a GPS(we were on the wrong side of the tributary!), we ran to the front door in the downpour, and finally figured out how to get the keybox open. When we entered the cabin, it was very warm inside - 97 degrees! Unbeknownst to Suzie, the compressor had gone out, and the air conditioner was not working. We called Suzie and she called the AC repairman but he was not able to come to the cabin until the next day. There were two room stand alone air conditioners that we needed to vent to the outside, and there were some fans. Unfortunately, they did little to reduce the heat until about 4 or 5am. The repairman came the next morning but he couldn't get the new compressor until the following day, the day we were to leave. Since it rained during the day, it did help to cool the cabin down somewhat, but even though we switched the air conditioners around, it was still pretty warm inside. We enjoyed the hot showers(plenty of hot water), and the dining areas(we ate several meals outside on the covered deck) and several in our group enjoyed a swim in the water off the dock. The ramp to the dock was a little slippery due to the moisture build up from the rain but the railings helped. The home interior was a little dated, and some minor repairs were needed(shower head squirted water outside the shower stall in the master; some outlets were loose; some of the plastic dishes were pretty scratched up; hot tub was not usable; and the covered deck leaked when it rained). The parking was adequate. We would have liked to have had pictures posted of the outside of the cabin so we could recognize it better, and we didn't realize it was a double wide. Suzie did discount our rate since the AC was not working so we appreciated that, and she did check to see if there was other housing available close by for the 2nd night(but none was available). The cabin is not on the open lake itself, but rather on a tributary, so it did lack the "wow" factor. We know the Evans family really enjoyed the cabin through the years but as a rental cabin, some updates and repairs are needed.
The home was very spacious with plenty of room for larger groups. The home was clean and easy to figure everything out. There is a huge deck out back overlooking the cove just across and down a bit from the dripping springs cliff. It has it's own private boat dock with a deck on top that you can hang out on and jump off of into the cove. The top deck above the dock was a very cool bonus that we did not know was there before booking it. The only downside about the location is if you are bringing a larger boat, there is a very steep and narrow hill that you have to go down then back up again which is kinda sketchy pulling a big boat. This hill is just before you get to the property. The private boat ramp is also very steep, I would recommend launching your boat in the public ramp just around the corner, then drive your boat over to the private boat dock at the property. Overall I would highly recommend this place for some good vacation time at Grand Lake!
Great property for a large group. We had 8 adults & 5 children, and there was plenty of room! Had a great time and hoping to return next year!
Well worth every penny! Great weekend and awsome location right where you want to be.Updated with lots of space for all 6 of us. Highly recommend I will definetly use this place again.
