"The home was lovely, clean, spacious, and well-appointed. Even better than expected.
The kitchen and bar have everything you could need for entertaining. There are many areas for togetherness or solo time.
The front yard is large and well-kept with a great covered porch facing the lake. Plenty of outdoor seating. The views are wonderful from the lawn or from the upstairs balcony.
Inside the furniture was good quality and comfy.
We would definitely consider staying here again!
My thoughts on other reviewers' comments:
"Bugs" - the entire island gets Mayflies in early June every year. There was not a bug problem in the house.
Birds - plentiful (and messy in places) but we were never bothered by them.
Wi-Fi worked well the entire time.
Sherry was communicative before and during the stay. We made sure to have the place clean in time for check-out and there was no problem. Just be sure to read the contract details and ask her if you have any questions.
There were a few closets/cabinets marked "owner only" and this was fine. There was plenty of room to put our luggage.
Some travel tips: there is one bathroom with tub/shower downstairs. There is one full bathroom attached to one half-bathroom upstairs -- both inside the huge Master bedroom. This could be awkward if the people staying together are not family or close friends. The downstairs bathroom shower has minimal pressure and the water, while safe, has a strong sulfur odor. We recommended that folks shower in the phenomenal Master bathroom which has a great rainshower and no bad odor.
The upstairs non-master bedroom will get hot if the door is left open due to the high ceilings of the common room. However, if you close the door the bedroom will get good AC. Our bed was very comfy.
The downstairs small bedroom has a twin (and trundle underneath). It is perfect for a child or single traveler.
Sound travels well so keep this in mind if sharing the rental with several romantic couples or children. We used the large floor fan as white noise.
FYI: We brought bottled water for cooking, drinking, and brushing teeth. (We have been coming to the island for decades and do this no matter where we stay.)
It's a great space and we recommend it highly. Enjoy your stay on Put-in-Bay!"
