Very comfortable. A little cold.
Nice quiet location
Thank you Shannon for your excellent review! We are open for relaxing family retreats away from city crowds.
Good stay but overpriced for what it is.
We had a positive experience in this home, we were happy to find a dog friendly place so close to the holidays. This is a nice house however it is very well used. It appears there is hard water in the area and all sinks, tub and toilets are stained yellow/brown. The photos make it seem larger and more luxurious than it is. Comfortable master bed and great access to the lake, great location being close to town. The old trailer outside was an eye sore. The kitchen was very small.
Shower drain upstairs was clogged and the smoke detectors are past the 10 year recommended replacement and should all be replaced.
This cabin is in such a great location! Quiet, has its own yard and lake access. Beautiful area to walk around. The cabin itself is well stocked with kitchen supplies (unless you are the max of 18 people, you may not have enough mugs/cups) but we were very impressed as to what the kitchen had to offer otherwise! Its only about 7 minutes from Cranbrook which was very nice so if we had to run into the city we could quickly! It does say that it would fit 18 people, and I would say that is very tight, you would be giving up both living room options. I would say that it would comfortably fit 14, 16 if you don't mind using the walk out level living room space as a bedroom. It also had a fire pit with lots of wood for us to use which was an added bonus!
Thank you Mallory for your heartfelt review. We can't wait to welcome you back again! Thank you for letting me know about needing more coffee mugs and cups - I have added 12 more so that there is always plenty! We sincerely enjoy helping you and we want you to truly relax while we take care of everything! Thank you for recommending the Cranbrook Lake House to your friends and family. Please let me know when we can help you again. Cheers, Jerry Kirsch - Owner
Amazing family reunion at the lake
Our family reunion was everything that we had hoped it would be. There are 4 of us couples with children and the cabin was perfect for us and exactly as described in the ad. Every couple had a separate bedroom with cozy beds and the kids loved their bunk bed rooms. We loved sitting around the fire pit sharing stories. The bathrooms were working perfectly for us. The cabin is clean and uncluttered with everything for cooking meals that we needed. Stairs are solid with natural slate tile. The yard is private and the gravel path to the lake was perfect for us. We used the canoe and paddled on the lake. We are planning to return next year for our next family reunion. Thank you Jerry for all your help in making arrangements so easy. It is a excellent value. We highly recommend the cabin to our friends and relatives.
Thank you Frank for your thoughtful and inspiring review. We are motivated by wonderful guests like you. We are so glad that your family reunion was perfect. We take pride in our beautiful home away from home on the lake and we sincerely enjoy helping you build incredible memories... Thank you for recommending the lake house to your friends and family. Please let me know when we can help you again.

The pictures gives it way to much credit. There was holes in the wall. Lots of chips and scratches. To the point where I took lots of pictures as soon as we checked in to ensure we dont get charged dir damage. The upstairs bathtub drain took about an hour to drain after a shower which had no hot water. Its wierd because bathroom has hot water at tap but couldnt get any in shower.
The btm step of stairs headed to side door was rotted out, no grip on stairs so they are slippery. No light on outside door by stairs.
Dryer was full of wet towels.
The tvs are the size of a computer monitor.
There's a old travel trailer in yard with junk al around it. Looks junky.
Overall disappointed with the stay especially for the price of it.
Thank you Shawn for your review. We have had hundreds of satisfied guests who have enjoyed a wonderful time at the lake house with excellent reviews. Any holes or scratches have been repaired and freshly painted. We take pride in our cleaning company and they have cleared the drain and fixed the shower valve. The step has been replaced and grips have been added. We have replaced the burnt out light bulb in the outdoor light. The TV monitors are the same as in the pictures. The travel trailer holds beach toys, paddles and life jackets for guests. We take your complaints constructively and always improve. Feel free to call me directly any time.
