My family and I moved from Maui. Hawaii in 1999 to this beautiful area. We hope you like it as much as we do. Thanks for your rental.
Allan purchased this Chateau / Country House in 2004
Why Allan chose Lakehead
It is very private with no neighbors close by. Lots of room for our guests.
What makes this Chateau / Country House unique
Hiking and biking right out the front door. Beautiful views and well shaded with pines to keep cool during the summer days.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Enjoyed being together as a family. Two great houses made it very enjoyable for all.
Peaceful, well equipped, comfortable
I organized a reunion of friends. Some of us had not seen each other in decades and this location was as close to the middle as we could figure. It was difficult to find something that would hold all 14 of us, (ended up 10 in the house, the rest camped down the road), so this looked like it would work. And it did!
The owner was always quick to answer questions before our trip. Check in was easy. There were enough "group areas" for different activities, and we all enjoyed the large dining table for our gathering feasts. The main kitchen had everything we needed to create wonderful meals-too much food! The hot tub and back yard deck got a lot of use. The wifi was strong.
There was direct TV in both living rooms, and Roku in one of them. Honestly-we didn't watch much TV, and when we tried we couldn't really figure out how to watch any of the free movies, but that just made us laugh at ourselves. (We had no teenagers to help us with technology!)
I normally sleep with earplugs in, but I didn't and everyone kept remarking how quiet it was at night.
We never did find the "swimming hole" but we think it wa because the lake is at an almost all time high. And the lake is only a 5 minute walk from the house.
Great house, lots of room
Owner Alan was very nice and the place had plenty of room to accommodate our group. Not only were there plenty of bedrooms, but plenty of entertainment areas as well. The outdoor ping pong table and hot tub were nice features as well.
Spectacular Home. PERFECT
Your home was just perfect for our family. Best time ever!!! The house was so clean and we were surprised at how well stocked it was. There was everything.
Great kitchen, actually two kitchens were great
The dining room table sat 20 people which was a plus for meals. Great outdoor barbeque plenty of seating for all our family. Hot tub clean and warm. Fantastic deck.
All the bedrooms were wonderful, clean and comfortable, and both big family rooms were so inviting to just sit around and visit. I just can't say enough great things about this lake house. SPECTULAR.
Allen was there on arrival to show us the in and outs of his home.
Best vacation EVER. Thank you Allen for allowing us such a wonderful family vacation.
See you next year. Oh and if you ordered up the perfect weather, thank you
Gosh, just wonderful...
Great time and place
House worked out 6 of us plenty room great time
Kind Owner. Very Disappointing Property.
We were in the Lakehead area for a wedding and rented this house for 2 nights with 3 other families, all young couples with kids or kids on the way. The pictures and reviews suggested an excellent property with ample space for our group of 8 adults and 3 small children.
We appreciated the space in the common areas, particularly the family room, kitchen, and dining area. The larger family used the addition to the house, which serves as a sort of annex with its own family room and extra kitchen.
The owner met us at the property shortly after we arrived and showed us the house. He was kind and amiable.
We began to discover a number of unfortunate surprises after the owner left. I went to use the bathroom only to find a previous guest’s (very substantial) fecal matter still in the toilet. Clearly the house was not properly turned around, which is both disgusting and disappointing, especially given the cost. After the toilet incident my wife forced me to remove the shower mat in the same bathroom because it was covered in mold.
The kitchen trash can reeked of cigarette smoke, so we put it outside. It seemed like the owner was using pledge and glade plug ins to cover smells. From what we understand, the previous guests were a nightmare. That’s a bummer, but that’s also not my problem. If you can’t get the property turned around then get out of the rental business.
Bedding was shabby, but seemed clean enough in our room (we didn't expect plush. We just wanted clean!). One of the other rooms had hair and skin flakes on the sheets.
We tried not to use the a/c too much and hoped to pull in the cool, evening air. That exposed another problem. Some of the windows have screens. Some don’t. Some have large holes that allow mosquitos in. Why? The screened window in our room was broken, so we propped it open with a paper towel roll. That window typifies the property. There is a considerable amount of deferred maintenance that should be addressed. Perhaps the owner will choose to spend some of those considerable dollars he collects to address easy and basic maintenance issues.
But hey, we’ve got “the turd house” story for all time.
This is the" kind owner" If you are looking at my property and considering a rental please look at the 60 reviews already posted by hundreds of previous renters with a average score of 4.6.
One of my house rules is to report any problems with the home in a timely call or text. This service is available 24 seven and quickly responded to promptly in person. This guest never reported any problems.
The home was cleaned and readied early at the request of the guest because his wife is pregnant. The cleaning took six hours and was inspected before guests arrival
I meet all guests and they are taken on a arrival tour of all rooms including bathrooms and bedrooms before moving in..
I am perplexed by the complaints. A vent window would not stay open. It took less than five minutes to repair. This house has over thirty windows and missing one screen with no holes of any size. The utility log showed a 68 degree home temperature at night meaning several windows had been opened.
Dirty toilets are easy to spot. One of the early guest must of used the bathroom immediately. Probably a young child after the long drive.
Bath mats are laundry-ed and sometimes show soap or shampoo stains but are a safety feature
Bedding is 500 thread count European cotton sheets. It is washed on site. All the used sheets have been inspected and and only a small white bleach spot could be found. The conclusion made that none of the laundry had been cleaned is wrong. All the bedding in every room was well used by these guests.There is extra bedding available but not used
The rental cost was $279 per night for 11 people. That is $25 dollars per person. A great price
There is no differed maintenance. This is a beautiful country home with seven tall trees. Leaves and pine cones fall all winter and removed in late spring. The tree droppings slow the rain off from hurting anything.
I can not explain any reason for the inaccuracies in the review. maybe the wedding didn't go well well.
You are welcome to call or write me for any pre-booking questions
Thank You Your Kind Owner.
