Recent Oakland property reviews

  • You won't be disappointed. Wonderful.

    "The pictures on the listing don't do this cottage justice. The cottage is conveniently located across from the lake with easy parking. Although there are other cottages around you, you still have plenty of peace and quiet. The owners took care of making sure they had anything you could possibly need available (flashlights, kitchen amenities, etc). We were allowed to bring our dog and she enjoyed the backyard as well as sitting on the porch. The porch was perfect for relaxing in the evening and morning, while watching the lake. The bedrooms also have an excellent view of the lake. The atmosphere inside the cottage was very "home like" - meaning you didn't feel like you were in a hotel. We were interested in hiking and were 10-15 minutes away from all the major State Parks. There was also a nice coffee shop 2 miles away that served wonderful breakfast and also had wifi internet. The property had a fire-pit and a grill in the backyard. The owners were very helpful and communicated well. The cinnamon rolls were the highlight of every breakfast. We highly recommend this cottage to anyone looking to get away."

  • Great family vacation

    "Just spent a wonderful week at American Pride with 8 people ranging in age from 9 to 79 and 3 dogs - everyone had such a nice time. A beautifully decorated, well appointed and very clean home with more than enough space for all. Everything was just as advertised, if not better. The Blakeslee community is second to none - very quiet and pristine. Highly recommended for family groups of all ages!"

  • Nice Place - Could use some upgrades

    "I general it was a very nice place. Comfortable and very big. Kitchen was nice and everything worked. The carpets need cleaned. The water was smelly so we had to buy allot of bottled water. I am sure the water was fine to drink but who wants to drink smelly water? The Hot Tub cover took 2 adult Men to remove it because it weighed some probably because it was frozen with water. There is allot of traffic on the road out front and could be loud at times. We ran out of firewood and they brought us some the same day(all though it was small wood and wet so we had to buy some) Beautiful view of the lake. We saw 3 bald eagles the 1st day. Lots of parks nearby to visit. All in all everyone had a great time and enjoyed the stay!"
