Fun place!!!

  • 5 of 5

My familt stayed at this listing in July/August 2013. The description of the house is very accurate. Owner is very helpful with any request. We traveled with 6 adults, 3 teenage boys, 2 children, and 2 dogs and there was PLENTY of room to be comfortable. The kids had a great time on this small, but very sporty lake (as well as our German Shepherd). Neighbors were friendy. There are places to shop/eat within a very short distance from the house. I would recommend this rental in a heartbeat!!!

enjoyed our stay but...

  • 3 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay, and the issues we had really didn't interfere with our enjoyment. The Living area was wonderful, with lots of room and nice furniture. The beach was great for the kids. The water was nice, but with a little effort (use to have a lake cottage and know this) the weeds could be cleaned away and it would be much better. I don't understand why other things weren't done. The pictures show a picnic table. There is none, and the table on the very nice deck has no chairs to sit around it. There are four nice Adirondack chairs outside, but impossible to use these at the table. Plus that table was falling apart when we tried to move it. So very hard to eat outside, which was very very disappointing. The inside table shows 6 chairs, there are only 5 and one of them is broken a bit. We had to improvise with a folding step stool for the extra seat. We were asked to clean the grill or be charged a fee. We did and it took and hour because it was so dirty, and the dirt was not from us we used foil on the grates. The main surfaces of the home were pretty clean, but house also need a very deep cleaning. There were thick cobwebs in many corners, base board and trim was covered in dust and grim.

There were a few safety concerns also. Although, it is stated to be careful how many people are on the dock it is a very bad condition and should be fixed. There really should be a deck light outside on the lakeside of the home. It's an accident waiting to happen. There was one working smoke detector, but the other one was detached and laying on a table.

With all that said we did enjoy our stay but....

Area nice but property needs cleaning and maintenance

  • 3 of 5

Garver Lake was a really nice lake that was fun for our grand kids to swim and we felt safe with them on a smaller lake. However, the cottage itself needs a good cleaning and is in much need of some maintenance with a leaky roof in the bathroom and an update of some of the safety devices.

Fair place to stay

  • 3 of 5

Property was a little underwhelming when we arrived. The pictures made it look a lot nicer, newer, and roomier. We were pretty crowded with 6 adults and 5 kids. In addition, we had to do cleaning when we arrived as the cleaning is dependent on how the previous renters leave it. The owner was very pleasant to deal with and responsive to my calls. However, would probably stay elsewhere in the future.
