We had a great time! It was just as we expected.

  • 4 of 5

The cabin was just as we expected. The owner was very responsive to all communications. The cabin wasn't fancy but we weren't expecting or looking for that. It was clean and well stocked with the basic linens and utensils as advertised. The dock and fire ring were both lovely and we enjoyed the lake. I don't know what the problem was with the one renter who complained about the locks. They were fine. We always felt totally safe and will likely rent there again!

Good, clean cabin, but owner was terrible

  • 1 of 5

The cabin is in a great location. The private doc is nice, the rooms were clean and the lower level area was spacious. The problem we had with our stay was the owner. We were told that before arrival she would be in touch with us with information on checking in. There was no communication but it all was posted vaguely on vrbo which I had to search for. Upon arrival we had to search the whole cabin to find a key to lock the front door. We contacted them and they said it would be in the welcome binder which it was not. Eventually we found it hanging up behind a rack in the front porch. Our next problem was that the back door would not lock, which was incredibly unsafe. We managed with locking the front door and putting a table and chairs in front of the backdoor. One night we heard someone trying to break into the cabin and left for the night because we felt unsafe. We contacted the owner explaining what happened and got nothing back but a text saying that we were in the wrong. When calling her she basically yelled at us, told us we were lying and refused us a refund even though we only stayed one night there, but paid for 3 nights! Overall, if we were provided with how the doors worked, locked, and were given some help and understanding in this situation, my review would have been completely different. Cabin is nice, but if you do not like dealing with inconsiderate hosts, do not stay here.

rustic cabin and a beautiful view of the lake.

  • 3 of 5

The cabin was pretty much as described on the web site. The cabin was supplied with the essentials such as cleaning supplies, utensils, etc but it wasn't prepared very well for us. The TV and heater did not work. After a couple of hours I got the TV working but never could get the heater to fire up and the tempurature was in the 50's in the evening. The cabin could have used a cleaning before we got there.

I enjoyed sitting on the private dock especially during the evening hours.

Overall we enjoyed our time there as did our yellow lab who pretty much lived in the lake.

About what you would expect for the price

  • 3 of 5

The price matches the property. This is a nice small cabin. It was fine for one couple. There is no privacy between the two bedrooms, so if you have more people, make sure you're cool with that. The cabin was surface cleaned, but could use a good scrub in the fridge & shower. The lake is great!!! You can rent a boat from a resort on the lake, which I suggest if you don't have your own. The town of Moose Lake is sadly lacking in things to do if the weather doesn't cooperate. Nice private lot with a fire pit. Bring your own outdoor chairs for campfire. Overall a decent deal for the price.

A nice private, rustic getaway that could use a few simple upgrades.

  • 3 of 5

This was the second time we stayed here. Last was June 2015.

You have the cabin to yourself and it feels safe in the community. They also allow pets and are family-friendly with a second bedroom containing bunk beds and a queen bed. The front bedroom has a king-size bed and a beautiful view of the lake.

The full kitchen has a big fridge and full-size oven, but it isn't yet finished. It's exactly the same as last year with the light fixture, switch and plug still in the drawer with a receipt dated June of 2015. There are just boxes with wires where they should go. It's probably 30 minutes worth of work, so it sure would be nice if they could get them in. I'd do it for a free night :-).

It has a small dining space inside, a tea table on the deck and picnic table outside by the fire pit, which was amply supplied with firewood. There is also a charcoal grill outside and grilling utensils inside.

The living room is comfortable wnd they have good wifi and a flat screen t.v. with cable for down time. The Windows give a nice breeze off the lake (no air conditioning, but not really needed there) but unfortunately the big picture window with a view to the lake has moisture between the panes giving a rather foggy view.

There is a nice dock to sit on, fish from (though the vegetation is thick in August), or bring your own boat to. I didn't swim this time, but I saw others in the water.

The bathroom is small and the tub surround was dirty. I was able to wipe away some of the buildup with toilet tissue, so it's not just staining from the water, which can sometimes happen in rustic homes. I could tell that the carpet had been spot cleaned, though. There were cobwebs, but I know how hard it it to keep up with them this time of year, so I wasn't bothered by them.

I enjoyed my stay, and would come back again. However, the following would be nice: a clean tub area and provision of towels, hand towels and washcloths. I understand there are life events, but I would get the fixtures installed in the kitchen, and finish trimming it up. Some lawn chairs would be wonderful, and if you can manage a more substantial upgrade, replace the picture window with the main view to the lake.

A nice private, rustic getaway that could use a few simple upgrades.
