Great place to stay
"The house was very comfortable, easy to get to and from Wisp, and was well kept."

I am so sorry for not getting back to you. No excuse for the late reply. You have been so accessible during our planning. I apologize, I have been bogged down trying to play catch up at work.
The trip was awesome. The hot tub was great. The pool and kitchen with two of everything was the best. We did however have issues with the cable but no biggie.
Two things that were hard to get past. We didn't have a bear proof trash can which made the raccons happy lol. The fire pit was elusive lol. I wasn't sure where it was :(.
All the bedrooms were awesome! The shower was kinda small in the master and that fire place warmed it up quick in the room. My wife is bummed she didn't get a chance to use the tub.
FYI, I asked if you had a sound system. You actually did, I had the same one before I upgraded. However, I bought my upgraded one with us. Please know by me saying that its not meant to be taken in the wrong way. You know how emails can be misleading without knowing the tone it was said in😉. Also thought maybe your husband or son may have put it there without you knowing.
All in all the trip was a hit you have made it so delightful to rent from. You alone have made our trip memorable. Thanks so much. Oh few more things. Fyi I am typing and my wife is talking to me in short hand lol. Its like thinking my yourself with a little minion on your shoulder wispering in your ear.
The pool alarm great idea for unwanted intruders or little kids. My wife was dissapointed in not seeing a bear lol. The family table was awesome used once but served its purpose. Oh fyi the dishwasher leaked and smelled horrible. The Archie's BBQ place did not have good food. That was established by the group as a whole. Smiley's however was fannnnnntastic. We did a segway tour at wisp and went to the falls. The park was great. We also stopped by the cheese place on our way back. Laurie those ladies were the sweetest, I wish we could have taken them home lol. So so nice.
I think that's it! I do want to come back and we would love the same house. Thank you so much again. Please share this with your family as we thank them too! Thank you again (can't say that enough).

"We just returned from a week at the lake and "At Lakes Edge" was perfect! We had 4 families under one roof, and this property was big enough for everyone- no one felt like they were on top of anyone else. The pictures do not do this place justice. The bedrooms were generously sized. The kitchen was very well equipped and was bigger than we expected. We loved the view from while playing pool in the loft and enjoyed swinging on the porch swing in the evening while the kids ran around on the wonderful lawn. And of course we spent a lot of time jumping in the lake! The location was ideal- close enough to the supermarket and ice cream to make things convenient, but it still felt serene. You will not be disappointed by this property!"

"First I must say the pictures of the inside don't do it justice. I was surprised with cleanliness and layout. The bed that we slept on was very comfortable and the living room area was up to date and modern. The back room with the computer, pull out sofa,full bath, laundry room and entertainment center is also nice. Its almost like having your own studio apartment. Would be a great place if you have kids or guests visiting to sleep.
The dock itself is in a good location and not a lot of traffic going by in that area. We used the fire pit by the lake a few nights. Would recommend. The outdoor deck is nice for grilling or just to hang out on. The fenced in yard is nice if you have a dog. We parked our truck behind the cabin and trailer across the street by the lake in the designated parking area for the cottage. Also, if you are bringing a boat make sure you fill it up before putting it on the water. Gas is expensive on the lake!
Rob, the owner, is great to work with. He answered all our questions and got back to us in a short time. We have already booked for next year. Next summer can't come fast enough!"
