Very nice property but a little misleading as being "on the lake"

  • 3 of 5

The house itself is very nice, clean, comfortable, and everything functioned. But we were under the impression we would have access to the lake in the back and the beach (with a short drive). The access to the beach is just a short drive and is excellent whether you choose the Kiptopeke State Park or town of Cape Charles; however access to the lake for fishing or anything else is virtually impossible due to lack of a dock or ramp. You can't even get close enough to cast past the brush and trees from the yard. Disappointing. It was also nearly the end of our week before the area around the house was mowed and the ticks were rampant. Grass should be kept short and grass treated. At the house next door, the kids played daily in their yard where as our dogs couldn't leave the gravel drive. At the cost per week and with the low cost of electronics in general; a DVD player should be available in the house, WI-FI available, and since they are already wired-some inexpensive TVs for the bedrooms hung.

Owner's Response: You were correct that you could access the lake, other guests have done so with their kayaks however, there is no dock and none was implied. Possibly in the future televisions/dvrs in the upstairs guest rooms will be provided, again it was stated clearly there was one television. Grass cutting is out of our hands as the rental agency has arranged mowing on a bi-monthly basis. A quick call to them I'm sure would have resolved the issue.
