Peaceful and Quiet Get Way

  • 5 of 5

The place was very clean and the neighborhood is very quiet, neighbors are friendly. My 8 year old daughter quickly made friends with some kids across the cove. We had a great time and made lots of good memories.

Owner's Response: Sandy, I am so glad you guys had such a good time at the lake house. It means a lot to know you have a lot of good memories from your stay. I wasn't sure if your daughter would enjoy the place as much as you would. However, is sounds like she had a great time with everyone in the neighbor and there kids. Thanks you so much for staying at the Lake House. Terry

We enjoyed our stay, the boat dock needs some repair and a easier way like a ladder from the dock to access the water, as we had inner tubes and water toys.

Owner's Response: Yes, I agree with Craig on the boat dock. It is scheduled for repairs after the rental season due to the people that are going to fix won't be able to take on this project until after the rental season. We had never had anyone asked about a ladder so I will have to give it some thought when the project gets started. I am sorry for any inconvenience on the boat dock. Thanks

Upstairs bathroom looks like it has mold in it. It has been over 10 days and still have not received our deposit back. We did everything they asked us to do in the rental agreement, (even though the cleaning people left a note on the kitchen counter not to strip the beds). Downstairs both tub does not drain well at all. The boat slip needs repairs. It is very unstable. The TV channels, most of the say weak signal. Internet is ok. Not much as for as cooking pots and pans, we had to buy a skillet to fry eggs. There was some seasoning, like salt, pepper and cinnamon.

Owner's Response: James H. - I am so sorry for your disappointment with your stay. I would like to address your issues you had mentioned. First the upstairs bathroom does not and I mean does not have any mold in which you described. I agree the wall paper definitely is needing replacing. What you see is the wall paper has faded over the years and looks ugly. My contractor is going to remove the wall paper and texture all the walls and ceiling as well as to paint them. I had several guests and family stay at the house the following weekend(s) right after your stay. I asked all of them to look at what you were complaining about. No one has claimed or seen the bath room had any mold. However, they did agree with you about the bathroom needed a make-over. They still found the bathroom to be clean and easy to use. The shower water drained just fine. I had the cleaning folks check to see if we had any issues with the shower water draining. They said there house drains just as fast as this house does. As for you stating you did not received your deposit at the time you wrote this complaint, well you were incorrect. Your deposit was refunded back to your credit card 3 days prior to what you stated. If you had a bad time and was disappointed with your stay for some reason or another I would not go around and make up untrue stories about the house except for the wall paper in the up stairs bathroom. I think you complained about the boat lift was out of order. Yes, it was due to safety reason. It's an old lift and will need to be replaced it. For the past 10 years we had no one ever complaint about the boat lift. Everyone loved to park their boat in it for shelter. In your complaint you said there were no pots and pans to cook your breakfast. I guess you didn't pull open the bottom draw on the stove where they are stored. We have everything there including a frying pan too. You are the first person to say anything about the pots and pans. The cleaning people always check to be sure we have everything you would need so you would have a great stay. I hope I addressed all your issues. I am so sorry you were very disappointed with your stay. Our cleaning folks has received nothing but great reviews on how clean the house is and how there is everything you need. Oh, I did remember you complained about the salt and pepper as well as a spice selection of spices. This is something we don't supply. So sorry you were disappointed. Sincerely, The owner

A really good time!

We really enjoyed it.. even with 3 days of rain! Very cozy and close to lots of antique shops so we could get out when not able to fish. Loved cat fishing off the dock at night. Would definately stay again!
