Nice Cabin, Good Location, Deer are Cool

  • 4 of 5

Overall we had a mostly positive experience. We did have an issue with the heater that took 4 days to fix. We spent 2 nights without heat at all with 20 degree nights. The repair company was not great and we wish more could have been done and almost had to cancel the rest of our 3 week trip right at the beginning of it. Vicki was easy enough to work with and tried to get the repair company to act faster. She did refund us around 2 nights stay which was very much appreciated. We wish this issue hadn't happened and it really bummed us out on the first several days at the cabin.

However we loved the deer (they are there ALL the time and will eat out of your hand!), loved that we could take the dogs (yes they barked at the deer but the deer don't care), and loved that we could walk around the community without much traffic. The location is pretty far removed from everything so anywhere you go takes at least 30 minutes. However Dominos does deliver :) We were there in the winter so we didn't get to swim in the community pool or enjoy the lake but it was nice to look at and walk around.

As for the cabin itself, some of the decor and furniture in the house could really use some updating but all in all we mostly enjoyed our stay.

Older house on the rise. Great area

  • 4 of 5

Seems they have started updating We hope it continues especially the TVand a fenced yard. The kitchen was well stocked, we did a lot of cooking 🍗?🥓?🥞?🍳?🥧?. Loved the neighborhood, park, wildlife and view. A little small for our needs but but we lived having our dogs.

Great Vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was clean and well stocked. Our favorite part was the porch on the front of the cabin. We saw countless deer and even two huge rabbits come through. Boat ramp is convenient as is the pool. We would rent the cabin again.

Another phenomenal family vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd stay. It's something our whole family looks forward to every year. It's perfect for us and Vicki has always been quick to respond when I had questions. As long as this property stays on the market to rent, we will be back year after year. Thank you!
