We really liked this property. It was great for our large family of adults and kids. Access to the trail system for biking and hiking was awesome. The fire pit was a hit with the boys. There was plenty of room for spreading out for sleeping. TV was great because we wanted to watch the College World Series. Quiet location. We hope to be able to go in a couple of years for another reunion.

Needs some love.

  • 2 of 5

The location was great and we had plenty of room for our family. The property itself was a bit rundown with broken chairs on the patio. The hot tub, never warmed up over 90. I reached out to the owners prior to checking in with a few questions and they didnt respond. I have also reached out regarding our deposit, that has not been refunded via a phone message and email and still no response. I would not recommend this property.

The location was Great! The house was large.

  • 3 of 5

The hot tub didn’t work which was extremely disappointing and the yard was not picked up. There was no heat downstairs except for electric heaters. We could not have more than one heater going without tripping the breaker.

The space downstairs was great for the teenagers and young adults except for it being a bit cold the first night. The movie room was fantastic.

The space upstairs was great for board games, cooking and family gatherings. The kitchen had plenty of dishes and cookware. The only complaint I have was the fireplace ran non stop making it really warm, we had to open the windows to cool the space down. The oven was dirty and the outside grill was in poor working condition, but we made do.

The wood floors were damaged, looked like from a previous water leak, a blind was damaged and the seal on the patio door was falling the house and furniture was a bit run down.

The bedrooms were comfortable and there was plenty of beds, but there were no pillow cases for the extra pillows.... plenty of blankets though.

The location was my favorite part of this house, with walking paths right out the front door. Great for long walks and exploring.

If the issues with the hot tub and heat, and the stove and some of the repairs were done, I would have no issue renting this space again, but I would not rent it in the condition it is in at this time again.

Best regards

Great place for a large family

  • 4 of 5

This house is perfect for a large family or lots of people! The house is beautiful with lots of room to spread out and a gorgeous view of Cascade Lake / Tamarack. The kitchen is well equipped for cooking large meals. The only reason I did not give 5 stars is that we could not get the hot tub or pellet stove working. The downstairs was a tiny bit chilly (where the pellet stove is located), however there were enough space heaters provided within the house to keep it warm enough throughout the weekend. We would gladly book this cabin again!

Owner's Response: We are very glad youbenjoyed your stay. I apologize for the inconveniece of hot tub not being hot for your arrival. There was a miscommunication with hot tub service man. He did a drain and refill instead of just checking chemicals. Pellet stove is working. I will have some better directions printed. We look forward to you stayong with us again. Sincerely, The Management Team
