Not a Bad Home.

  • 3 of 5

Chris was great to deal with. He even let us stay an extra night at no charge because we were in a bind due to weather.

The house was in decent shape. Some of the amenities are neglected. Grill doesn't work. One of the showers has non-working doors. There was also a relative of the owner staying in the adjoining home that shares an entrance with the rental property so privacy was a minor concern.

The location was nice and for the most part, the place wasn't bad.

The house is split into two rental units.

  • 3 of 5

I urged the owner to change their description but since he didn’t I feel like it’s my place to make people aware of the situation. The owner seems like a really nice guy so my review isn’t about him it’s about the situation. Like the previous review, my party and I were pretty surprised and disappointed to arrive only to find out there are two units. This should 100% be listed in the description of the property. You need to make people aware of what they are paying for. The house is split into two and the only thing between you and another party is an interior double door which in my opinion should have a deadbolt lock on it but it didn’t. Some of my party showed up late and while checking out the house they opened the double doors and walked right into the other part of the house where the other people were staying. We were under the impression we were renting a private property and not sharing it with another party especially for the price of $1,054 for two nights. The second part of the home is under renovations being done by the owner’s uncle but there was another group staying there at the time. They might have been family friends because I didn’t see that part of the property advertised. Like the other reviewer said there is no outdoor furniture. The fire pit in the yard is where you will spend a lot of time so make sure you bring chairs and maybe a table because without them the backyard really doesn’t serve much purpose to stand around. Not sure how the backyard is going to work out when there are two parties staying in the house who want to use it? The gas grill in one of the pictures has been sitting there for a while and doesn’t have grill grates. It’s a really nice Weber grill, pay the $40-$50 bucks and put new grates and a propane tank in it, this will just increase the value of the backyard from a guest’s perspective, it’s a no brainer. The internet was nonexistent. Make sure you bring your own pillows and linens. The cleaning fee was $145 but the house didn’t include linens? With that said the rest of the communication was good. I asked if there was air conditioning and was told no. When we arrived there were what seemed to be multiple brand new window units. This was obviously an extremely nice gesture which is definitely a positive reflection of the owner. It's not lakefront but the location is great. It's about a 3-5 min. walk to the bars and restaurants. The place has potential but more should be included for the price.

Odd combination of nice and terrible

  • 1 of 5

This is really two houses- one that is pictured and another that is not shown, but is attached at the main entrance to the home.The "other house" is under renovations and there are tools and debris about.Young children would represent a safety issue if they wandered into this area of the home.The owner did not respond to emails prior to our trip and did not provide instructions beyond a standard email.When we arrived, the house had no running water and we had to figure out how to get it turned on, then we had to figure out the hot water heater if we wanted warm showers. Water pressue is very low. Kitchen is minimally appointed which is an issue when cooking for a family of 6. Bed in the master bedroom upstairs squeaks and groans with every turn. There are no screens on many of the windows so there were bugs after a night of sleeping. Despite a provided wifi password, there is no wifi in the house and there are plenty of TVs but nothing to watch. If there was a way to do that, there were no instructions provided.The outside area is completely unusable. No chairs, tools-leaves-random cinder blocks laying about. The outside of the house has not been cared for in many seasons which was disappointing as we were unable to sit around the firepit in the evenings. Once we figured out the water turn on and how to rotate showering so water didn't run out completely, we were busy enough with nearby activities that the house was comfortable enough to sleep in, but we did leave a night early and as mentioned by another renter, despite the promise, the owner did not apply the public servant discount. This house would be fine for young adults in the area to ski, but not for a family, and the communication from the owner is poor. We would not rent this house again.

Nice place with fun atmosphere, but poor communication from owner...scammed the 15% discount!

  • 2 of 5

Owner advertised a 15% discount for Teachers, military, police, and fire but never honored it...put a real damper on an enjoyable weekend, and never responded to follow-up inquiries regarding the refund.

House was fun though: good fire pit, gaming console, shuffleboard, nice kitchen and sleeping arrangements, and an easy walk to the lake and "town" area. Good stay, just make sure you get your discount first, rather than a rebate/post-payment deal.

Great for big groups

  • 5 of 5

We had a GREAT time! When looking at the pictures we were nervous that the place would be a little small and we were totally wrong! We had 10 people (4 guys and 6 ladies between 27-30) sleep comfortably in the house and we could have fit at least another two people. The first night we had SO much fun in the game room and than walked to Nick's Lake House for dinner (since it was snowing and the roads were bad). It took us about 10 mins to walk there and we all had fun playing in the snow on the way. The next day we went tubing and cooked at the house. It was the perfect spot for us to spend the weekend. Thank you Chris!

New Years at Lake Harmony

  • 5 of 5

My family, friends and I had a great stay at Christopher's house. The location was great. We were able to get picked up by a car service and go snow tubing! It is also walkable to Piggys and Shenanigans, but we never made it there. Every room had a nice TV and the game room was awesome. Overall, a great stay!
