"I've stayed in several high-end VRBO homes over the last few years - this home is top-notch. From top to bottom, the attention to detail in the home is incredible. My family spent as much time talking about the unique design elements and layout of the home as we did just about any other activity during our weekend stay.
While the sleeping arrangements may not be best-suited for multiple couples (one queen bed and then 5 singles), it was perfectly comfortable for our family of 5 (plus dog) and would be excellent for a group of 6-8 friends. The full house was wired for sound, and the new sound system was easy to control (wireless airplay from smart devices in the living room, and a plug in audio cord for the rest of the house). We cooked all of our meals in the home, and the kitchen was by far the best I've come across (industrial style range, multiple ovens, over-sized sink, multiple dishwashers, and every tool/dish required). The cabinets were filled with spices/oil/coffee filters/etc...all-in-all, it was perfectly prepared for a weekend of cooking and left us with only the primary contents needed for a meal.
It was a bit early in the season to be outdoors too much, as it was quite windy and difficult to safely manage a fire - but I'll be looking to get back up to this cabin to take advantage of the lake ASAP...the spring-fed lake was crystal clear (although just recently iced-out) and the walk-out beach provided a perfect swimming spot. We did, however, take advantage of the walking trail located right next to the home, and the views of the lake from inside the home made the location well worth it regardless of weather. Make sure to get up early for a beautiful view of the sunrise over the lake!
In summary, everything was in working order and extremely clean for our stay. I'd highly recommend a visit to John's cabin."
