great house!

  • 4 of 5

Tony's house is modern and fully stocked with plenty of room. We were a family of 7 and could have had more people. The price is right and Tony doesn't charge a lot of extra fees. The amenities are super. You have to reserve the horseback riding about a week in advance. Our boys took out kayaks and paddle boards and really enjoyed the lake. We also did mini golf. We saw a lot of deer. The deer are somehow not very afraid of people. We actually fed 2 deer from just a few feet away on the property! Tony was also quick to respond to our needs and left us beer and other food in the fridge.(Our only small issues were - we would have liked the ability to rent a family movie of our liking. (there were a few hundred dvds in the house). We did do a wash to make sure we had enough linens and we did need to clean the fridge a little.) Overall great place and we would definitely want to come again!

The house was very nice but one bedroom was unusable

  • 4 of 5

The air had been turned off to the attic bedroom and it was over 80 degrees in that room. We opened the vents, and the doors but even by that evening it was still about 78 degrees. Luckily we had several houses rented in the area and were able to readjust people and move them to a different room. The house itself was very nice, very clean and modern. We had a great stay and would not hesitate to return.

Overall a good stay but...

  • 2 of 5

Overall we all had a pretty good time, house was nice, and affordable. Only problem was we didn't receive all of our deposit money back because there was apparently hot plate damage to the table, that destroyed the finish. We cleaned after every meal, and cleaned the final morning before leaving and not a single one of us noticed anything out of the ordinary and everyone on the trip would dispute said claim. If there was damage to the table, it wasn't us, nobody was dumb enough to put a burning pot on a wooden table, but we got charged for it.
