  • Things of note

    "We spent a week at this well appointed condo in Okoboji. For the most part we were satisfied and happy. Just a few things to note for the traveler. Okoboji goes "off season" after Labor Day. This meant that the resort's "fabulous" lakefront restaurant and "year round" entertainment that are sold as amenities to be enjoyed with the condo have some caveats. No restaurant and the water park was only open Fri. 4-10, Sat. 9-10 and Sun. 9-5. Its too bad because the water park was great! Also note that we were contacted by the condo owner early in our stay with a complaint from a neighbor about what sounded like children running in the building. It was pretty obvious we were the only family with children in the building. She was nice about it and everything but this made us feel a bit on edge our entire visit trying to keep our young boys quiet (which has an exercise in futility). This is why it's important, in my estimation, that "family friendly" descriptions be accurate. So if you have small children I don't know if I would necessarily recommend the condos, you might want to look into a free-standing cabin on the resort property. The location was close to the main strip and thus really convenient. With regard to the unit . . . Preference comments: fire place is hot air not gas or wood (ie, no real flame). If you're a connoisseur of beds/bedding (and I am) you'll find average quality here. Shower in Master is lacking in caddies and space/ledges to hold products, shave legs and such. +'s: Lots of space/light, direct door from master to deck, nice view, beautiful cabinets/wood, great puzzle drawer, sirius radio on flat screen, real candles. Maintenance comments: Dishwasher kept running until we had to manually shut off, ice dispenser in the fridge readily clogs and spills ice everywhere every time its used. We utilized a chair from the deck to replace the a broken one from the dining set that was placed in the laundry room. These are all first world problems for sure, but when you're paying first world prices, maintenance issues aren't something you should have to work around. Happy traveling!"

  • Cute cottage & great location!

    "We just visited Clear Lake, IA, 8/1-8/3/14. The cottage had all amenities and was nicely decorated & clean too. It was in walking distance to many things, which was very nice. The owner, Linda, was very nice to work with and very prompt in responding to requests. Their property manager was also very nice to work with too, very accommodating. Also an added plus was the Classic Car show and 50s/60s band that played music in the park. This cottage is also just around the corner from the Surf Ballroom that is well known in Clear Lake. Would definitely stay here again!"

  • Peaceful

    "We took a girls trip to Nashua. Was a little further than I thought from Omaha and we got lost once we were there. But once we found the cabin it was great. The living, dining and kitchen are a very good size. Although we had neighbors on each side of us, we never heard them. It was so quiet. Finally on Sunday we saw some jet ski's and boats go by. Everyone is friendly and waving. We took the canoe up the river (about 500 ft) to a sand bank. We had attached our floats and had a cooler with drinks and snacks. River was low enough where we could walk a good part of the way. It was sooooo relaxing. Also loved the hot tub and fire pit. Had a problem getting the grill started. Only worked once. Not sure if was us or it was out of propane. Either way we just cooked on the stove and enjoyed our meal on the deck overlooking the river. Also took a stroll around Charles City. A very nice town. I would recommend this to anyone who just needs to get away for some downtime!"

  • Just as indicated

    "The lakefront home was just as the owner had indicated in pictures. There were plenty of spaces for our extended family. We all enjoyed the open format of the kitchen/dining area. This is not recommended for those averse to stairs. My daughter and I had the loft area and often found ourselves running from the dock through the house and to our room."
