Wow!! Best lake front cabin for the whole family!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this property for 8 days while visiting family in Cranbrook. Overall it was an excellent experience, good value for the cost, and we would highly recommended it. The location is spectacular. We spent most early mornings and late evenings sitting on the patio looking out over the lake. The chance to sit out at dusk in July with no mosquitos was glorious. The dock and waterfront were adequate for keeping and lauching the canoe. The property came equipped with two canoes, paddles, and lifejackets, we were able to make good use of them. The cabin is very attractive and fully equipped. The kitchen appliances are new and the utensils and cooking gear were more than sufficient. The beds were clean and comfortable, with clean bedding and towels provided. Jerry, the owner, was exceptionally friendly and could not do enough to help us and make our stay as carefree as possible. It is a short drive into the city of Cranbrook and there were many stores to do some shopping and tasty places for dinner out. The Heid Out is one of our favourite restaurants. The stairs and railings inside and outside the cabin were stable and we were able to move about with ease. This property is ideal for two to three couples with many other beds for children/other family members. In our case, two couples and five kids, we fit perfectly with lots of room for everyone. The listing description and photos accurately portrayed the property. Overall, just a great place.

BIG DISAPPOINTMENT!

  • 1 of 5

Extremely disappointing and frustrating to arrive and find a very poorly cleaned cottage. Skin cells, hair and stains were on the bed sheets, and there were stains on some comforters. We expected to find luxury linens, as listed in the description, but they are definitely not that! We had to wash all of the sheets, and had to buy our own laundry detergent as there wasn't enough provided. Only 1/2 roll of toilet paper was in one of the bathrooms and there was only one bath mat. Used Tampons were left in the bathroom garbage can and the four garbage bins outside were still full of garbage. Wet towels were found in the washing machine, which we had to rewash, and then they took almost two full cycles to dry in the inefficient dryer. Some areas of the floor appeared clean while other areas were definitely not vacuumed, swept or mopped. The vacuum barely picked up anything so we swept the floor and ended up with quite a pile of dust and debris. There was a big clump of dog hair on the floor by the kitchen door, as well as stains on the tile and wood floors in various locations, food on the floor by the table, fireplace ashes on the living room floor, mud on the floor on one side of the master bed and dental floss on the floor on the other side. Dishes were still in the apartment-sized dishwasher. The kitchen towels were very stained and there wasn't any pepper or paper towels. It took almost an hour to boil a large pot of water on the stove. Thick layers of dust cover the portable fans, vents, living room wall decor, and all the window screens! Obviously they've not been cleaned in a very, very long time. Many walls are banged up, and there is no railing on the stairs to the lower level. Blankets on the coffee table were full of dog hair. The deck and stairs need to be repaired and reinforced as there is far too much swaying and wood rot. The patio table and umbrella were not on the deck, as pictured in the ad and listed in the description, and would have been greatly appreciated. While there are canoes to use, you'd have to carry them quite a ways through swamp/marsh land to get to the dock or lake. It would be nice if the dock was truly accessible from land. The cottage can sleep 18, yet only 4 people can sit on stools at the table. Plus, this cottage is no where near 3000 sq ft, as described! Closet doors have been removed as the rooms are small. On a positive note, the beds are comfortable, and Jerry did refund the rental cost of one of our four nights.

Winter fun at a fantastic property!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 3 nights at the Escape Away Lake Front Cottage and it was perfect. We brought our snowmobile and went skiing a couple times, the kids especially loved playing hockey out on the lake ice. Everything you can dream of that you might require (and more) was there. They have thought of it all. From the beginning when we booked the property to the expedient way we received our access information and everything in between. It all worked and worked well. The beds were very comfortable and the bathrooms stocked with all you need. The property is fantastic. Quiet, clean, modern, rustic, fully stocked and all working. Beautiful kitchen with all the fixins. Wifi was strong when we wanted to reconnect with the world. Plenty of wood available for the cozy fireplaces in the upstairs and downstairs large living rooms. Can't say enough and would highly recommend it to anyone. Thank you!!

Bright Beautiful House with Large Lot

  • 5 of 5

Arriving at the lake house in the evening after a long drive was very easy to find as Jerry had the driveway plowed and the outdoor lights were on. We were very impressed with the large walkout and the fresh clean house. The kids enjoyed exploring the property as the lake house had plenty of room for our 3 children to run and play for hours in the snow. Thank you for supplying all of the extras we needed in the large kitchen. At night all of the bedrooms had new blinds to keep out the morning sun for my sleepy heads. Thank You Jerry for answering all of my questions when I booked.

Owner's Response: Thank you Susan for your excellent 5 star review! The Cranbrook Lake House is incredible for family ice skating on the frozen lake, sledding, snowmobiling and cross country skiing. Then enjoy hot chocolate by the cozy fireplace. The road is always plowed 24 hours 7 days per week as we are located on a school bus route. Our driveway is always shoveled for you. I sincerely enjoy helping great families build incredible memories together. Please let me know when I can help you again. Cheers, Jerry

We are looking forward to booking our next stay in the summer. Happy New Year!!!
