Nice house but some troubling smells
Great house with lots of room but the whole first floor smells like wet dog! We had to spray some cleaner and air out the place when we arrived. The towels also smelled like cigarettes- and considering I had to pay over $100 for linens for this property, I’ll be asking for my money back on that!
We do regret that you never called us about " a wet dog". When we arrived there - it did not smell at all, ( wet dog smells do linger ). We correct any item immediately, and this is the first ever complaint about a wet dog in this home , ever.
We do ask that you call us immediately upon check in - and no-one did. We did refund your money for the linens - but again - we and the linen company have to know right away- not after you leave.
We encourage everyone to call or email within 30 minutes of arrival , and you had the phone numbers and email, obviously. We never heard from you your entire stay. We have fired that linen company as well, so do not use the ones at the lake- this is what they charge us - we just coordinated it for you.
Nice lake house. Not fancy but works for small group.
We rented a pontoon boat from Parkway Marina which was great and very close. Nice dock at house. House rental is not fancy but overall clean. Floor tile & kitchen cabinets need updated but for the price probably a good deal. Propane tank for grill is supplied by owner which was confusing on listing. We rented sheets and towels from website which was very convenient. Steep walk to dock! It would be nice if the owner offered a cart for transporting things to the dock. Lots of walking up and down the hill! Not close to many restaurants, etc but that was okay for us. Upstairs loft bedroom gets hot, bring fans if driving. Basic but a good time! Nice view!
Thank you for staying ! We wish we could offer a cart..however the insurance companies will not allow it currently... Wait for next year however - we do plan on expanding and offering more decks moving down towards the lake with fire-pits and more room to play ! Hope to see you again soon !
Place was beautiful. We had a wonderful time.
We loved the view and the wildlife on the property.
Great home !
Thank you for staying .. this home is wonderful... it is very peaceful and private, yet convenient !
We had a great time at the lakehouse and took advantage of the kayak and the dock throughout our stay. We also enjoyed the ping pong table and the screened porch.
If you are truly reliant upon having WiFi, it is very spotty in this house. It’s not the fault of the house though. We spoke with the neighbors (who were very friendly) and they said the Huddleston side of the lake has really poor internet access. That rings true as we stayed previously in Moneta and did not have this issue.
The house is nice and clean and has plenty of room. The loft bedroom does get hot. The basement is wonderful. There are two king beds, one full/queen, and one twin. I think the packing instructions only say king and queen. I guess I should have referred to the pics when packing versus just the verbiage on the what to pack list. :)
Most stores and restaurants are a good 15-20 minute drive away. We recommend Waller’s restaurant (great burgers and they’re dog friendly) and Bridgewater Marina for rentals.
Thank you for staying ! yes we know - our internet is not the best- we prefer to think of everyone's vacation as becoming " unplugged and more family time !"
Some of Moneta both sides also have the same issues. Thank you for letting us know about the what to bring list - we did change it to 2 Kings but you had booked before the owner changed the beds out-, so hence we regret you received the old one.. Thank you again ! We would love to have you back soon
Unfortunately the air conditioning doesn't keep the upstairs very cool. The cleanliness of the property was so so, not bad not good. That would fall on the cleaning crew that manages the property. The outside deck needs some repair work done.It is a nice home and I hope the owners emphasize that it needs proper cleaning after each visit.
Thank you for your feedback.
Regarding the air conditioning, did you try adjusting the t'stat to your comfort level?
We do send the housekeeping team back out for issues if you report this upon your arrival- we regret, we did not hear from you.
We will let the owner know about the deck, not sure what repairs are needed but thank you for bringing this to our attention.
Hope the fishing was memorable! SML does have some extraordinary tournaments.
