"My family and I rented this exquisite cabin, and was able to house our entire family (otherwise we would have to rent 3 hotel rooms). It was fairly clean for the most part, but can be dusted better. Some window sills upstairs haven't been dusted in awhile. The basement had very visible cobwebs in the bathroom and bedroom light fixtures. The owners were helpful with my questions and overall diligently communicated with me. Overall, we very satisfied with the visit!"

"I just returned from the Buena Vista Lodge after celebrating my wife's 40th birthday. I could not have been happier with the lodge. Based upon the reviews I had read prior to leaving, I had very high expectations. These expectations were exceeded in every way. Prior to arriving I found my communications and interactions with the owner to be seamless. The owner was extremely responsive even after normal business hours. Once I arrived, the lodge was in impeccable condition. The furnishings were all high quality. The lodge has tons of living space and has a floor plan that accommodates large groups of people extremely well. The lodge is very private and isolated. We felt as if we had the lake to ourselves. We enjoyed renting ATV's from Motor Sports Marine which is just a few miles away. They only had 3 ATV's but we rented them for 8 hours and were able to keep switching every few hours so 14 people were able to enjoy ATV'ing throughout the day. The ATV trails are close to the lodge and we were able to meet at Lil Hummers (a very nice local bar) to exchange the ATV's. We all went white water rafting at Shot Gun Eddy which is about a half hour away. I highly recommend rafting. It is a ton of fun. But, be sure that the water level is good for rafting (I would say between 500 and 900 cubic feet per second). This lodge is a very special place. Consider yourself extremely lucky if you are fortunate to spend some time here. Words can not adequately capture the experience of staying at the lodge. It will leave you with life long memories. You will not be disappointed."

"This is our second year and it was another great time. The beach and pier are wonderful to spend the day/eve around. The kitchen has been redone and looks great. Our dog was so excited to return he started whining as we pulled into the drive - then ran straight into the water where he could be found when outside. It is so peaceful and private which is very relaxing. We met a nice neighbor that gave us fishing tips - maybe next year we'll catch the big one!"

"This was our 3rd trip to Spielhaus...another great vacation. The owners have invested plenty in upgrades. The shower and additional bedroom on the first floor are fantastic. This place would seem to comfortably sleep 8-10 adults in my estimation. Very clean. Updated Kitchen and appliances. View of lake is fantastic. We have plans to return again as it's such a great spot and such a great house. One of the main reasons we'd originally chose this vacation rental as a spot to visit was the availability of the boat to use during the week as part of the rental. This is a great 'hook' for anyone considering renting. It should be noted for anyone considering this rental that the pontoon is pretty small. You might fit 6 adults on it..you'd be incredibly cramped with more than that in my estimation. That said, it worked perfectly for my family (2 adults and 2 kids) and spent every single day on the lake taking in the views, watching the eagles, fishing, swimming, etc. Needless to say, we would highly recommend this rental."
