Great Location and Outdoor Space

  • 4 of 5

We just spent the week at this property and were impressed with the outdoor space and beautiful views of Lake Amelia. The items such as the raft, lily pad, kayaks, toys, and playset were a huge plus for this property. Inside everything was clean and the owners supplied about everything we needed save for food itself. They even left a bag of coffee beans which we loved!

There were a few things that could be improved as well. The wifi was rather spotty while we were there, ranging from "great" to "can't even load a web page". Keep in mind if you were planning to watch Netflix at all during your stay! Also, while bathroom washcloths and towels were supplied, they were old and had a musty smell to them as they had outlived their useful life. Would recommend the owner swap out for a new set. Similarly, some of the bedding had holes and stains and could use replacement.

The other negative to the property was the lack of functional space inside the property. While there was a lot of sleeping space, the rooms were not very functional. You could not open the door all of the way in the bedroom with the queen bed and it was difficult to get into the bed because it was sandwiched between the wall and the bunk beds. In the other bedroom, the full bed was also against the wall due to the size of the small room. We also would have liked to see a different furniture set up in the main living space as there was no indoor eating space or table. They did have a folding table we ended up fitting into the back corner of the unit, but it was not very comfortable or functional for meals with our toddler, who would not have fared very well on the outdoor eating area either.

Overall it was a great stay and would recommend, but want others to avoid the surprises we came across.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your positive review and good suggestions. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and made use of all the extras we provide for our renters. We do try to provide as much as we can to make your stay a great one. We are sorry you had trouble with the internet streaming movies. After talking with some of our neighbors, we do know that during your stay they were having some troubles as well. I am happy to say that this is not something that is a typical problem. Thank you very much for bringing the towels and bedding to my attention. I will definitely have the cleaning staff replace them. The bedrooms and living room space with portable furniture are consciously designed to be able to sleep as many people in beds and not clutter the living space. Hopefully the bedrooms are not used for much more than sleeping with so much to do at the lake :) Thank you again for choosing to stay at the lake. We do strive to make your stay a great one.

Relaxing retreat for the entire family

  • 4 of 5

We just loved staying here! The views were amazing. Loved watching the kids play and jump off the dock or kayak. Very relaxing and quiet. There was plenty to do both inside and out. Lots of board games and an Xbox for the teens.
