Everything we expect & more.

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our family. Lots of space and excellent conditions. The only thing we wish could’ve been improved was the time it took to fill the Master bathroom tub upstairs . Other then that we love this place and will for sure return.

Great Family Destination

  • 4 of 5

The property was spacious and had plenty of space for the family to hang out and spread out. The pool table, hot tub, board games, and multiple balconies were great for entertainment. The heaters worked well and kept the house comfortable.

The property is conveniently located near town and amenities. Basic supplies, such as trash bags, toilet paper, soap, and towels were provided. The owner communicated well and provided clear instructions for checking in and out of the house.

The 4-star rating is for a few minor and insignificant issues. Some of the lights could not be turned on, or the switches controlling the lights were not found. The garage remote was not able to open the garage doors (probably to misaligned sensors, which should be easy to resolve), but the garage doors could still be opened using wall-mounted controls inside the garage. The front door knob was a bit tight and hard to open.

Other than those few inconveniences, the property and the experience was excellent. The 4 restrooms and 4 car-parking spaces were great (and almost necessary) for a big family.

I would definitely stay here again on a future visit.

Beautiful lodge living with views of the lake

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful property. Definitely not a cabin :) More like a mini lodge mansion. The main living space is inviting - we went for a friend's 40th birthday, and we cooked, dined (in the formal dining room), and lazed around on the sofas in front of the fire. The 3 bedrooms are luxe - all with their own bathrooms and fireplaces - though the master bedroom is the winner. So spacious! If you have more than 6 couples, keep in mind that the 4th bedroom is a kid's room with 2 twins off the pool/game room. And any other people will have to sleep on hide-a-beds (including 1 in the master bedroom). The kitchen is nicely stocked with pots, pans and cooking utensils. Just bring your own wine glasses if you have a large group :) My friends and I would definitely rent this home again. It's cozy, luxurious, and comfy!

The property is large nicely located, spacious although we had a scare.

  • 3 of 5

We did start out with a hugeee scare. As soon as we got into the property, we were shocked by how the place was. None of the beds were made and there was spills on the floors. Near the fireplace there were log messes from logs. And everything looks like someone left in a hurry. So we followed instructions and called the housekeeper. Who did not pick up. We called Kristy and she also did not pickup. 2 calls to the house keepers later and 2 calls to Kristy, finally Grace picked up. I asked if she was at the house to clean earlier and she told me she wasn’t scheduled. She said the owner did not tell her to come. She said she will check and call me back. Thankfully after a text to Kristy she finally responded and said that the housekeeper will come. We were so tired from the drive at this point. Kristy graciously offered to pay for our dinner that evening in consolation. And we waited 2-3 hours until the house is finally clean. After the housekeeper left we found out that none of the sofa beds had any bedsheet and all the spare are locked away. A few of the lights went out and we had to replace the ones we were able to find spares for. But the upstairs bathroom was dark without a light above the tub. The bed upstairs was good. Although the bed in the master suite downstairs is broken down. My sister and her husband sank to the middle of the king when sleeping as it looks like the bed is no longer in good condition. But all the other beds are good. Overall the stay was decent, although when you pay quite a bit for a property and cleaning you reallllly hope it has been cleaned. Because at that point after the drive all you want to do is lay down... although luckily we were able to contact the owner and she graciously made an effort to resolve the issue. Both her and the housekeeper are nice. I know scheduling mishaps happens but it really is at the cost of someone’s very needed vacation which is why I really can’t give them a 5.
