A truly amazing weekend!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had an amazing time at this beautiful house. The family room is huge and comfortable with games to keep people entertained. The deck is absolutely stunning with great views and comfort in the shade. The water and dock area was amazing for fishing and swimming.

This house has all the amenities of home and then some. We look forward to going back to this house in the future. Thank you for everything Dana we had a great weekend.

Relaxing and Peaceful Setting

  • 4 of 5

This should be a 4.5 rating. We had a wonderful vacation....we enjoyed the lovely views from the multi-level deck as well as the fire pit, hot tub, sauna, ping pong/pool table and kayaks. The modern kitchen was perfect for preparing family meals with many lunches and dinners on the deck overlooking the lake. We were surprised and pleased that the lake wasn't too busy. It didn't hurt that the week we were there was ideal weather-wise. The bedrooms were great and the family room spacious and accommodating for our extended family of eight. We had a couple of minor issues--the owners responded immediately. I am already missing early morning coffee on the deck. We would go back in a minute and would recommend this property to everyone.

Pure disappointment

  • 1 of 5

we booked this home because it stated in the overview in black and white that it sleeps 12 and there are beds for 8-12. We had 6 adults and 6 kids and we could only sleep 9 in beds (9 th was a futon) which left 3 without anywhere to sleep. We had to purchase a blow up for one person and use what we could find for the other two. We were aware that there was another guest apartment on the property but we did not know it was literally attached to the property we were renting. Then we realized that 12 of us and the renters in the other ATTACHED apartment were sharing the dock, grill and 2 of the 3 kayaks. That was awkward for us and it lead to a community vacation instead of our own friend/family vacation. The beach was also misleading. The description of the beach said it was in front of the house but we could not find it. We were told it was 4 or 5 houses to the right but under water due to high water. Lastly, we never really sat down to have a dinner in the dining room even as just 6 adults because there was not a dining room table that sat 9 people as per the description unless we were supposed to use the ping pong table and pull chairs from around the house. Thank goodness for good friends and family which is what got us through our three nights of pure disappointment.

Owner's Response: I’m glad Homeaway/VRBO is looking into allowing property managers to rate guests. This woman would have been a zero and I would highly caution anyone from renting to her. She is no longer allowed to ever rent any of the properties my company represents. She appeared to have a plot in place to ask for a refund the moment she arrived. We clearly state the capacity of the property is 8-12. Her "children" are all fully grown and of extra ordinary size at 6'4". We have had many happy guests and we strive to make sure everyone is enjoying their vacation. We did everything possible to appease her including offering additional air mattresses and sending members of our staff over to manage her continuous threats. She refused everything we offered EXCEPT only wanting some of her money back while continuing to vacation at the property. She threatened that unless we paid her back and let her stay she would give us a horrible review. Obviously my entire staff smelled a Rat. We are not in the business of paying to avoid bad reviews. We have many many return guests and 5-Star reviews and hope you will overlook this person who appears to have another motive of a reducing the cost of her vacations. Her claims are nonsense. There are individual grills, decks, hot tubs & kayaks for each unit. The guest apartment has its own deck which has its own grill and hot tub on it. There are 4 kayaks for the main house on the beach area of the main house which is in front of the house. The guest apartment has its own beach area which has its own firepit, dock and 2 kayaks. This is located on the other side of the bushes just west of the beach area for the main house. The areas for the 2 should be separate unless you invite them to join you. The water is much higher than normal, so this will affect the amount of sand in front of the house but the kayaks, firepit, dock are all right in front of the house. As it states in the guest book, there are table clothes which can be used on the ping pong table and the counter size barstools which are located around the living room can be used for seating. There is also ample seating at outdoor tables located on the deck.

Everything we thought it would be and more

  • 5 of 5

When we booked our vacation, we were always a bit skeptical since you never truly know what you are renting until you arrive. All I can say about this place is it was everything we thought it would be and much more! The pictures and descriptions were spot on, we had no surprises or let downs. We had a house full of girls with plenty of sleeping room, and no problem at all with all of us having to shower and get ready. It was a perfect weekend that was made possible due to the spacious living, multiple rooms and bathrooms, gorgeous backyard full of tiered decks that lead down to the refreshing water. We would definitely recommend this place for anyone to stay and we will for sure be coming back, as we hope to make it a yearly tradition to do so!!
