My family and I stayed at this property this past week. We chose this place because there were 20 of us and according to the description, this place would fit our needs. Upon arrival, we were shocked and very disappointed to see the condition of the place. The pictures of this place are very deceiving. The info states it is a 3 bedroom, 3 bath with a hot tub on the front porch. All of this is false advertising. There are no actual bedrooms. There is an open loft upstairs with a free standing toilet at the top of the stairs. That is apparently one of the bathrooms. The second bathroom on the main level has glass doors with animal hides partially covering them. (Not ideal for 20 people) There are two murphy beds in the basement with a gross run down bathroom. The basement smelled and felt damp and was crawling with bugs and spiders. The place was filthy and looked like no one had been there in a year. As for the hot tub on the porch...there was no water in it! The gas line was cut off to the gas grill. There was one TV that the power button was broken off of and none of the remotes worked. Upon discovering all of this, a call was placed to the owner expressing our concerns. We could not get him to return our calls. Next time I vacation on an unfamiliar lake I will definitely research the water clarity. Big Sandy has very dark brown water and apparently it is always this color. I would not recommend this property to ANYONE!!!!!

We rented this house for our week of vacation. From the moment we reserved there seemed to be something a little bit off. We arrived ontime, no way to get into the home. The outside has not been taken care of at all this year. Unable to manuever the walkways due to the over grown weeds. Stairs leading down to the lake were over grown with weeds. unable to go up and down the stairs. No dock in. Deck was flthy. Front porch was filthy, hot tub not filled up, apparently not working. Pictures of he outside were very inaccurate. I am unable to comment on the interior as we were never able to get into the property. No key available, apparenty someone changed the lock. Heard rumors that it was changed by a realtor and that the property was bank owned. Owner assured us via email that the property was not in foreclosure. Owner requested that we wait at the property for a locksmith to open the doors for us. Frankly we saw the condition to the outside of the house and not interested in seeing the inside of the home. No dock, hot tub not operating, gas grill, but no gas to run it. So far no money refunded, vacation ruined. Would I recommend this property to others NO.
