Had a great time!!!
Had a great time!!!
We had a marvelous time at the lake house on Gilbert Lake. My daughter got married there on Sunday night and we spent the rest of the week enjoying the lake. The lake house was perfect for our wedding. We used the main living room as our chapel (because there was a 60% chance of rain). ( It did not rain.) And placed tables on the deck and the downstairs patio. Also had a dance floor on the downstairs patio. We served our food off of the big dining room table. We took pictures out in the front yard because it was so beautiful. It was just great. We had a total of 7 children in our group. We had children ages 1 to 14. We ended up blocking the stairs on the way to downstairs and the stairs off of the back porch. That was primarily for the one year old who started walking while we were there. The sandy beach was just perfect for the kids. Also, the owners had a few toys for the kids. They also furnished us with a port a crib and high chair so the little one could sit at the table. The walk down to the lake was an easy walk. A few stairs but not too bad. We had several fires in the fire pit down by the lake. Roasted marshmallows and had S-mores! It was fun to sit around the fire and talk. The "detached unit" is a separate rental near this property. We had no problem with renters. I did not even know that they were there. Some of the bathrooms do need to be update. However, they were totally functional. Information that is not included in the web site. There is a good deal of parking by the house. The kitchen has two separate ovens. You have that extra patio downstairs. There is a Fooseball table. There are two extra rooms that can be used as bedrooms or what ever you need. You have a gas grill with two propane tanks. There is a storage area on the patio that has lifejackets. The only thing that I wished that I had not done was read the previous traveler review. It gave me second thoughts about staying here. I would have missed out on a marvelous time had we not stayed here. I am sure that we made memories for a lifetime during out stay!!!

Didn't hold up to our expectations
Didn't hold up to our expectations
The pictures of this property only include the good parts. The bathrooms are completely outdated and dirty. The towel rods in all bathrooms have been ripped off the walls, there is only a tub in the master bath (the shower head has been ripped out) and the shower in the upstairs bath is dirty and teeny tiny. The description states there is a "Detached Unit", but don't be fooled; it's not included. There were people staying there the whole time we rented the house, so we were sharing the beach and had random people wandering on the property (without even a warning). You indeed have a beach, but it is completely unmaintained. We had to pull weeds, rake, pick up garbage and basically dig out the kayaks. We ran out of toilet paper on the 3rd day and had to buy our own, there was no dish soap to clean dishes and all the screens were removed when we arrived, so we had to search the storage area/attic to find them and put them all on. Not something I would consider "relaxing". This place is really not little kid friendly either, there is no lawn in the back and lots of steep stairs leading down to the beach. The space is there and would sleep 8 people, but I think it would be better for all adults.
