Some Good, Some Bad
Overall, the house is nice and the area is beautiful. The house is huge & furnishings are comfortable. I enjoyed tinkering on the piano. There is a pool table, books and board games available to use. Has full kitchen that appeared to be fully equipped but we didn't end up cooking there. The bed in the master bedroom was very comfortable (a HUGE plus for us). It was nice having 2 full bathrooms. Fenced in yard for the dogs was nice but there were issues (see Cons).
Cons: The blinds in the living room are stuck at the top of the window and won't go down so you are completely exposed at night with the lights on. This definitely needs remedied. There's a huge hole in one of the window screens in the front window that is very noticeable/unsightly. The master bedroom window wouldn't open (probably for security reasons) and it got really warm in there at night, even with the fan we brought. The house would benefit from some ceiling fans.There was an issue with ants in the kitchen. We bought ant bait traps but they didn't seem to help at all. By the end of our stay, the ants were hitching rides on us to other rooms and we ended up bringing a few home with us. We were disappointed in the lake view from the house. You can barely see the water. The picture provided of the view in the listing is deceiving (it's zoomed way in). There is supposedly a picnic table and small sandy beach down by the lake that you can walk to, but we couldn't find it. All we saw were private boat docks with picnic tables on them. There was also no sandy beach that we could see. We thought we would be able to go sit at the lake and enjoy the view/swim, but this was not the case (not the owner's fault). We asked the locals and were told you can jump off a dock to swim or you have to stay at the resort or have a membership to the swimming beach. There are also no boat rentals at the lake, which was very surprising and disappointing! The lawn chairs in the yard are completely trashed; bring your own. Had to supervise the dogs in the fenced in yard because there is a steep concrete ledge. Our small dog jumped off the ledge and it was too high and he fell on his side. Fortunately he was not hurt, but he could have been hurt badly. The slats in the deck railing are wide enough for a small dog to fall through so be careful if you take a small dog as the deck is up really high. The wood steps/railing out front seem to need repair; they did not seem sturdy. Will stay elsewhere next time.
Cabin felt like a perfect home away from home!
My Wife and infant baby and little dog absolutely loved this place. Felt like staying at your relatives cabin,m; sublime!
Great place. Love the mini dog park :-). Great location close to shops and lake
Beautiful cabbin and great location!
We really enjoyed our stay at the cabbin. It was easy to get there. Had a little bit of snow on the driveway when we arrived. Good thing there were two shovels that helped us to clear it fast. It was clean and cossy The kids loved it. They loved the pool table and piano. Had everything we needed. We can't wait until we get to do it again.
A Nice Retreat!
The cabin is located in such a great area. It's a nice break from the city. The cabin itself felt very homey and was clean upon arrival. I definitely would come back again!
Extremely relaxing weekend
Thank you to Kathy for letting my family (my husband, dog and me) stay at her cabin house. It was the most relaxed weekend we've had in a very long time. We hiked, took advantage of Oktoberfest at the village, and enjoyed a quiet weekend. Thank you, we hope we can come out again.
