Great Place for Family Reunion

  • 4 of 5

Overall our family had a great time at BobCat Lodge. Having an upstairs and downstairs common area, couple of decks and of course the lake for kayaking were key with lots of people.

The reason for only 4 stars and not 5 is that the kids were very disappointed there was no trampoline as advertised. And while there was plenty of a/c - there were no instructions and multiple units - all with different remotes/controls. We also had same issues with the tvs/videos. Overall we weren't watching much - but found each tv had different instructions. One tv didn't work. Also, we had a few people unable to join us at the last minute - which was a good thing. We had 16 folks (5 children and 11 adults) and could have fit 2 more, but not 4 - the other two would be on air mattress in game room or sleeping on couch, which was not a fold out. But it was great for the number of folks we had.

Another important thing to note - and we should have asked because the photos didn't show it - is that we had two folks with mobility issues (unsteady walking with canes). There are many stairs into the house and many to take to go down to lake. In some areas - from upper deck to fire pit or to lower level - there were no hand rails at all. While we made do - we would not rent this house again because of our specific needs for easier access.

That all being said - we had a great time. The fire pit, pingpong table and basketball game were taken advantage of by our group. We had a young bear make an appearance and eat wild berries a couple of times where we could all watch from the upper deck - which was great. There were more pots and pans than expected for both cooking and baking. The kitchen also has a lot of spices - don't buy any until you see what's in the cupboard. The gas grill was easy to use. We sadly broke a couple of glasses but then found a terrific church thrift in town and bought glasses, a few more bowls and utensils to add to the mix. We were sad there was no recycling...we self hauled this out and took them home.

I would recommend this spot if you don't have anyone with mobility issues and you're good with a remote!

Owner's Response: Dear Sherill, Thanks for your review and I'm glad you all had a great time and I will attempt to address your specific comments: - Trampoline: My insurance company made me take away the trampoline and I replaced it with a children's activity playset. I thought I had informed you of that back in January... but apologize if I wasn't clear. - A/C's: Each room has it's own remote control to offer individualized comfort. Since installing this new system 2 years ago I've not had any complaints... The remote has a blue snowflake for cold, red sun for heat, swirling arrows for fan, dripping drops for humidifier. - TV remotes: Power, then Input Mode for TV/Cable or Video/CD - Assistance: I have 2 caretakers who live in the community to assist with any issues for my 3 properties should something arise... A simple text or call is all we need. - Beds & Sleeping: I list all the beds on the website and pictures of each room so you can know in advance. I allow up to 20 people in the house and depending how you wish to accomplish that and how you plan to fill the beds is not up to me. - Mobility issues: Yes I would always recommend asking about any specific concerns regarding renting a house when mobility is an issue. - Recycling: As per the detailed instructions in the Welcome Kit, all garbage and recyclables get put into a commercial dumpster I supply... and once at the facility the contents get sorted. Again, I'm glad you enjoyed a great time and thanks again for being wonderful guests! Sincerely, Robert

Great family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Our family (ages 2-56) had a wonderful time at the Bobcat Lodge. Beautiful location and home. Plenty of space for everyone, and activities in close proximity- golf, zip lining, hiking and of course playing in the lake and fishing as well.

All amenities were as stated, and more! Highly recommend staying here!

Fantastic house for a large family!

  • 5 of 5

The house is perfect for a large family like ours. We have 5 children & 8 grandchildren. We are a family who loves to cook together & the kitchen was perfect for us. The home is spacious, with enough bedrooms & bathrooms for all. Robert, the owner, is very nice & very accommodating. We are booking again for next year!

Amazing House, Amazing Owner

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to Bobcat Lodge with a group of 12th-grade girls for our graduation trip for the past 5 years, and it gets more amazing each year! The house is spacious, well stocked, and most importantly, immaculately clean. The girls especially love the rec room with the comfy couches,ping-pong table, basketball, and large screen. Bob is a pleasure to deal with - our reservations and payments have been smooth and hassle-free. We wouldn't stay anywhere else!

Awesome Vacation Spot!!

We have stayed at Bobcat Lodge on a senior class for a few years and are so pleased each time. The house and property is well maintained, spacious and beautiful. Working with the owner is a pleasure. We love the nearby waterfalls and tubing.

The Perfect Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I have stayed at Bobcat Lodge in Hunter Mountain twice for Memorial Day weekend and it is absolutely fantastic. The house is extremely well maintained, spacious and totally equipped with everything you need. It COMFORTABLY sleeps 20 people and a lot of room for lounging on the couches inside and the chairs on the huge deck outside.

The landlord, Robert, is very easy to work with. He answers all questions quickly and allows for a smooth rental process. One year, we left the remote for our Roku and he mailed it back to us free of charge! He's very polite, accommodating and an all around great guy. Working with him has been a pleasure.

My friends and I could not be happier with this house and level of service from Robert. We will be sure to continue to rent this property as frequently as possible.

If you have the chance to rent this house, you should! In a word... it's perfect.
