About Scott Werenka

We built this Cabin ourselves in 2012 as I am a Home Renovator out of Airdrie.

Scott Werenka purchased this cabin in 2012

Why Scott Werenka chose Alberta

We choose this location as it's quite and the views of the lake are fantastic.

What makes this cabin unique

Private home yet you can leave the cabin if you are feeling social and visit the rest of the community.

A bit disappointed

  • 2 of 5

The cabin and layout was very nice, unfortunately when we arrived the place was not clean, there were bugs in all the windows and on the sills,floors had not been vacuumed, crumbs in fridge and cupboards, microwave had crusty food on walls, toys in playroom were quite dirty and left over froot loops, cookies etc in the toys and carpet, also looked like they were looking to repaint, door frames etc had filler all over them, masking tape on the walls. We spent the first hour or so cleaning/vacuuming as we had young children who weren't quite walking and were crawling on the floors. The listing had mentioned a firepit but it had been removed the prior year. Only half the jets worked in the hot tub. The owner did refund the cleaning fee to us, and has since amended the property listing in regards to firepit. I had emailed the owner a couple of times during the stay but he wasn't too happy about it had said I was too "detail oriented", and gave me a poor review because I had commented on the cleanliness. Location was great, space was good, view was excellent but wouldn't go back.

Owner's Response: We are disappointed to hear your stay was undesirable. It sounds like it wasn't a good fit for your family. Unfortunately you read, wood burning fire place as out door but it was the indoor one and I appreciate your feed back and have revised my listing to clarify for future guests. The power surges out there sometimes and 3rd jet needs to be rest in hot tub when this happens so a quick call could have rectified this. As per the cleaning, With guest turn around sometimes things are rushed and missed but we have discussed with cleaner to improve our guest experience. I hope you find your next holiday experience to suite your needs.

Absolutely wonderful.

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is gorgeous. It is very spacious and beautifully laid out. The bedrooms are, very smartly, in the cool basement. In winter, the rooms are cozy as there is in floor heating. The view of the lake from both the deck and the hot tub is fantastic. The house has everything you could possible need. It is not really a cabin, but in fact, a four bedroom house.

The community facility is huge. It boasts a HEATED outdoor pool, an indoor pool and hot tub. There are also two games rooms and a workout facility.

The community is spacious and not at all very busy.

Overall, we had an incredible stay.

Great vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

We had the best family holiday! The house had everything we needed for a perfect get away! The beds were very comfortable, the kitchen had everything we needed to prepare meals for our family, the weather was perfect, we enjoyed the beach, canoeing and paddle boarding. The hot tub was great. We had so much fun we didn't get the chance to try out the clubhouse and pool. Will definitely plan another vacation here.

So Nice

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for almost 3 weeks this summer and we wish we could rent it every year! Beautiful view, everything you need was there. The house is great, there is always shade and good air flow through the house, air condition is not needed. The lake is beautiful and the facilities are great but the pools being open was hit or miss, great when they were open. The kids loved it. Scott is great to deal with and very helpful. Can't wait to go back.

Good but could be great

  • 4 of 5

Overall this is a very good place to stay but it could be even better with a few refinments. First off it is very obvious that the owner has small childern from the tiny patio furniture to the tiny plastic glasses and the children movie collection. As well the 2 sets of bunk beds were not ideal for adults. We had 6 adults in our party so finding an adult glass for a drink was difficult at times as well as it was kind of awkward climbing into the bunk beds. the master bedroom has a great king sized bed. not sure what the 4th bedroom would be?? the kitchen has most everything you might need but the pots and pans are not in the best shape, if you like a fried egg in the morning i would suggest you bring your own pan and a decent flipper. we found there to be a few things missing in the kitchen that would come in handy. the ice maker in the fridge did not work but we were left with ample ice. The BBQ on the deck is awesome. The place doe not have air conditioning. We had cooler weather during our stay but on the one sunny day the house got to be a crazy temperature with having all of the blinds closed. Also, there is no cable or sattelite tv nor WiFi. We had a rainy day during our stay and either would have been nice.

Overall the place is good to stay in and the lake is great if you have a boat.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback! You are right, we are set up for families, so we can't change the bunk beds situation. We did however bring out a new set of pots and pans as well as adult sized glasses (and extra coffee mugs). We are looking into installing air conditioning as well as WiFi. Fourth bedroom is at the moment taken over by the grand piano (should be gone by Christmas), but that is a hide-a-bed in there. Once again, we appreciate the feedback!

Ladies get-away

  • 3 of 5

Myself and two friends stayed at this rental for a week's holiday; the house is beautiful, very comfortable, the bedrooms in the basement with the walk out are really fantastic, the views are really exceptional :-)

Unfortunately, I didn't pay as close attention to the listing as I should have. There was no cable, (however the DVD collection was extensive and helped, but many of the DVDs didn't work) no wifi or Internet access of any kind and no air conditioning. No wifi wouldn't be an issue for a weekend, but we had the rental for a full week and that was inconvenient. Every other rental I looked at before booking this one had wifi (and cable and air conditioning) so I should have paid closer attention when reading the VRBO listing, but after looking at so many, it's easy to get the details mixed up. Without AC, the house gets to be 30degrees Celsius by 9am, every morning. It was quite unbearable. Also, the hot tub was not cleaned or ready for us, so we didn't use it again after the first time. After getting to the rental I went back to the VRBO details and realized all of these issues shouldn't have been issues if I had paid closer attention- the details say no cable, no AC and no wifi. Had I read the listing the properly, I would have skipped this one and paid a fraction of the price for a hotel with cable/wifi/AC or any of the other rentals I was looking at.

None of these issues are in any way the fault of the owners- they have everything listed in their ad. The house is very comfortable (beds, seating, amount of space, kitchen fully stocked etc) and the walk out bedrooms out to a shady patio were my favorite! It really is a beautiful rental, I just had expectations based on the wrong details and wouldn't have rented this house in the first place if I had read the ad properly.
