wonderful property for a few families

  • 5 of 5

there were 9 people staying here and no one was on top of another.We all loved the hot tub,especially since the weather changed and it was cool.There was a problem with the coffee pot and within a few hours there was a brand new one delivered. I would recommend the property to any one.We ALL had a great time.The Herrmann's knew it was our 50th wedding anniversary and left us a nice bottle of champagne and a lovely card.Very nice people to deal with.

Right house, but wrong location and time of year

  • 3 of 5

The house was spacious and served all our needs. However, there was quite a bit of algae in the lake. From what I am told this is quite common especially in the later months of summer at south end of Lake. The algae and other debris (dead animals) from the lake piled on the small shore near house. It the sight was unwelcoming but the smell was unbearable. The house manager was quite friendly and responsive. Within 36 hours men were there cleaning beach as best as possible. However, we had to shut all windows and could not enjoy sitting outside even after clean up.

Owner's Response: I'm so sorry Sarah. I'm glad that you liked the house. The condition of the lake is really beyond my control. I'm glad that the lake commission were responsive and cleaned the area in front of the home. I did send over an extra donation to make sure that they were extra motivated. I'm very disappointed that my home received three stars. I always try to do my very best but the condition of the lake is something that I can't help.

Great house for 6 adults and 6 kids under the age of 8. The owner was great to deal with.

  • 4 of 5

I think this house and Lakewood are great for young families. You're a mile from the very cool, quaint downtown Lakewood area. Only 1-mile to grocery stores, Starbucks, etc. Bemus Point is only a short car ride or boat ride away. The house has plenty of room and all the amenities we could have wanted, including toys and bunk beds for the kids. I would highly recommend this house!

Great place for a getaway with friends

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed the spacious and quiet lake house. There was a lot of comfortable space for 6 adults and 9 children to stretch out and relax. We took kayaks and it was a great place for the kids to practice kayaking in the shallow water. Several enjoyed fishing off the dock. The kids were happy to explore the beach area but we were unable to swim due to the blue green algae bloom. We did end up going over to Lake Erie for the day to swim and collect rocks. The hot tub was a nice way to end each day. It was convenient to have Walmart and Wegmans so close for grocery runs. We cooked all of our meals in the house and had everything we needed to do so. The homeowners also provided linens, hand soap, even beach towels! They were very easy to work with and quick to respond. Gloria the house manager was very sweet and accommodating. Overall we enjoyed our stay!

Nice property ,a bit outdated

  • 4 of 5

Property was not really clean upon arrival ,was a nice house ,says sleeps 18 but u can probably get 25 in there ,very large property.,you can not swim in water off dock it's filthy ,location is good there is all stores you need within 5 minutes. Would be nice if you can rent a jet ski on the lake but there is not a single place to get a jetski. Overall was good experience just not alot to do in this area accept rent a boat ,but this obviously has nothing to do with the house as the house was good

Owner's Response: I wish that you would have contacted me if you did not feel that the property was clean. Someone would have come immediately to correct your concerns. Glad that you thought the house was good. The house was totally updated in 2010 and we are doing another update this winter. Glad that you felt we deserved 4/5 but of course we always strive for 5/5.

Friends Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Annually a group of guys make a trip. We chose this house this year and might of been the best one in years. Right on waterfront. Firepit. And the sleeping arrangements were perfect. The front of the house was for those who were early birds and back was for night owls. Would recommend this home to anyone who is looking for a place to stay.
