Exactly as advertised
This home was perfect for our 3 generational family.
Four Years and Counting ...
This is our 4th time returning to this lake house. The view is incredible! This is a quiet, clean, and very comfortable home with all the amenities. My only suggestion is to update the mattresses. However, the couch and the fireplace make up for that. Our family has made this place an annual tradition and we are already looking forward to next year. It's all about getting away and relaxing and this is the perfect place to do that. Thanks, Paul and Gayle!
Hi Lisa, we are glad you had a good time. We hope you keep coming back. Thanks Paul and Gayle
Better than advertised!!
Spent three nights here with our son and family. It was truly a dream vacation. Everything was exactly as advertised or better. The pictures on the website do not do this charming, comfortable, home away from home, justice. Truly a luxury vacation!
We are so glad that you and your family enjoyed our little paradise. Thank you for the kind words.
Our Great Time at Rainbow Lake
Our whole family had a great time! We enjoyed the beautiful townhouse. The furniture & beds were very comfortable, the kitchen was very well equipped, the stove & refrigerator were modern, as was the dishwasher. We liked being on the lake and enjoyed the back porch, although the weather was cold for 2 days, so we didn't spend much time on the porch.
We were glad to have the fireplace! We did a lot of walking around the beautiful neighborhood and enjoyed the bicycle built for two and the kayak. We appreciated the fenced area for the dogs. We watched some of the DVDs and played games. Everyone in the family wants to come back next year!
I'm so glad that you guys had a great time. Thanks
charming house right on the water!!!!
Awesome stay away from the valley...cool temps, kayaking, and couldn't get enough of the deck overlooking the water.
The house is clean, comfortable, and has most everything you would need in a home away from home. It is pretty dated, but it's all about the patio overlooking the lake! Coffee in the morning, every meal, and nightcaps...all on that great patio deck.
This is a great place to stay if you are looking for a relaxing trip and appreciate outdoor activities and viewing wild life. Can launch kayaks right in front of house, or public launch decks for larger boats aren't far. The hummingbirds put on a great show too! We bought a bag of sugar and refilled feeders to keep them coming. (They eat a lot!!..we left sugar in the cabinet:). All the neighbors were really friendly and happy to say hello. We had a great time!! Would highly recommend.
I'm so glad that you had a great time. We just had granite counter tops put in after your visit and are having the kitchen cabinets refinished also. Please come see us again. 😎
Somewhat of a Disappointment
My husband & I spent two nights here to celebrate a special occasion. We could have just as easily stayed at a hotel with the amount of time we actually spent in the townhouse!
It is a quiet and peaceful place, but we were hit with a very strong incense or room freshener spray that made us wonder what they were trying to mask as soon as we walked into the place. The strong smell was annoying!
The place was relatively clean except for a thick layer of dust on the toilet paper holders (although very adorable!), and a plant in the downstairs bedroom that was covered in dust. My husband is allergic to dust, so this posed somewhat of a problem. There were also cobwebs on the wall above the door going out to the patio in the downstairs bedroom.
We appreciated the use of the kayak, but were not in the mood, nor did we want to take the time, to clean it off. The inside was covered with dirt and cobwebs, so we rented a boat from across the lake and spent a whole day out on the gorgeous lake!
We would have enjoyed sitting on the upper patio, but the chairs to the table up there were still folded up and on the lower patio. We made the best of the situation by staying on the lower patio and I filled the empty hummingbird feeders with sugar I got from a local restaurant. The hummingbirds were so fun to watch!
I think it's a shame that we were charged a "cleaning" fee when it was obvious that the place was given a quick once over & the cleaning person had no eye for detail! Maybe time for a new cleaning person! (or don't charge the cleaning fee!)
Sorry to be so negative, but you want honest and truthful reviews, right?!
I'm very disappointed in your post review of our home. I guess everyone has the right to be mean. I'm sorry for what ever is going on in your life.
