Great, relaxing vacation
Great, relaxing vacation
My family and I recently stayed at this home. I was a bit concerned with the above review but found it to be inaccurate. The home is calm, relaxing and comfortable. An open floor plan makes it nice to have conversations and spend time together. The kitchen is large and great for cooking meals. The first floor master is peaceful and does not at all remind me of a childs room. My children had plenty of room to play inside and out. Yes, the home has a few steps to the lake but what is wrong with a bit of exercise? The view is gorgeous, the water incredible, the neighbors kind and all is quiet especially at night. The porch was my favorite place to read a book. We thoroughly enjoyed our experience and would rent again. Thanks for having us.

Owner response: Thank you for your generous and kind remarks. We feel we have one of the most beautiful homes on Higgins lake. We were happy to accommodate your family for your vacation. Families like you that have followed the agreed to rental rules are appreciated. When someone violates the rules and bring in large numbers of people or reunions to the property it creates excessive wear and damage. We are thankful that you contacted us directly with your kind comments and suggestions as well as your nice review here on VRBO.
You are right next to a public access. The people that water their flowers will show up every day rain or shine. Carpet is white in home damaged by other renters charges a fee to clean it. Even when you pay a cleaning fee. Lots and lots up steps to walk to home. Lake is so far away trees are in the way you can only see a little of the lake. Cottage is so close to neighbor you can hear the T.V . On hot humid days AC is turned off for summer, feels you should not use it. Old pots and pans very thin will burn while cooking eggs. Master bed room is set up like a little girls room all in pinks and flowers. If you want to relax this is not the place. I felt by paying top dollar I would have a nice time. Worst place I have ever rented at Higgins Lake. Would not recommend this to a friend or relative. Owner said there was 3.5 baths really at the time there was 2.5 one unfinished in basement. No privacy.
