Nice location but very disappointed
This cabin is rather old but it's in a nice location overlooking the lake. However, we were not happy with our stay there due to the difficulties we had communicating with the owner. This cabin was described as having wi-fi but after several attempts to get the password from the owner he finally let us know that there was no wi-fi available so we ended up running out of data on our family plan. The first night we arrived there we planned to use the grill on the patio to cook dinner only to find out that the grill had not been cleaned up in a long time! Furthermore the patio itself also was rather messy and had not been cleaned up either. Inside the house both of the remotes for the ceiling fans had dead batteries. The owner said he had extra batteries in the drawer but those were the wrong size. We made a couple of trips to the Wal-Mart in Mankato to get the right batteries and to get various things that we had assumed would be there for doing some cooking for our family but weren't, like can opener, bottle opener, matches or lighter. We had 5 adults and when we made coffee in the morning we find out there's only 3 mugs in the cupboard! The owner didn't have this cabin ready for guests and didn't respond promptly to various inquiries. On his listing on VRBO he mentioned he had a pontoon that we could use for a fee. When we asked about the fee to use it, his very delayed reply said that he didn't have a pontoon there. However, the pontoon was parked at the dock the whole time we were there and the ignition key was on! The owners reply was very strange and troubling at the same time. We brought our young grandkids along and hoped they could play in the water but the lake water was very murky from the farm runoffs and not suitable for swimming. A ride in the pontoon around the lake would have made our stay more pleasant. We have stayed at various places with our family the last few years, and we felt the owner of this cabin lacked courtesy toward his guests and didn't make any effort to to make our stay pleasant. Extremely disappointed .
Beautiful cottage. Not as many amenities as hoped
Beautiful. Relaxing. Tasteful decor.
No internet but owner offered to supply tablet with WiFi hot spot. Water too dirty to swim which was a huge disappointment. Bring drinking water. Nice area. We found two lakes within 10 minutes to swim in.
Overall it was relaxing, we just would have liked to let the kids swim.
Cozy place with a great location.
We had a wonderful weekend on Lake Washington. The location was perfect for enjoying the water (swimming, boating, or fishing). The house does fit twelve but it is smaller in size so it is definitely "cozy". It is a very cute house that was very well maintained. Also, they have many items needed like utensils, cooking items, etc.; however, if you are bringing a larger group, I would recommend that you bring your own tables settings to ensure that you have enough. The owners were very helpful and responsive with the questions that we had regarding our stay.
The cabin was a lot smaller than we thought. The guys are all tall and the beds were short.
It was.cute and clean. Beautiful view
Pretty good, nice place on the lake...
The place was a nice cabin with decent interior. The patio is lovely to sit out on and have dinner on. It's a beautiful view from the cabin and the dock looking out at the lake. One bit of advice for people who stay here: like in many cabins, there are no window treatments. So if you don't care to wake up at 5AM with the bright sunlight streaming in the room, bring some dark sheets and tacks to put up over the window or bring some sleep masks.
Very enjoyable and relaxing!
Even though we were only able to stay for 3 short days it was most enjoyable and relaxing. Just as we hoped!
Our first time here and the cabin, location and lake view and access was excellent. Cabin appeared to have been remodeled recently and it was so well done. Furnishings, windows, views. We especially enjoyed the downstairs bedroom looking out at the lake and a beautiful night sky over the water. Thank you so much!
