HORRIBLE!

  • 1 of 5

We went there with a group of friends last year. I am still in shock about the whole experience. First of all the owners were sleeping in a trailer in front of the house on the driveway! During our stay they were entering a house and checking on what we were doing. No privacy at all!! On New Year's they said that we were outside and loud on New Year's Eve after 10 p.m (RIDICULOUS) and because of that we woke up neighbors and they decided not to give us back our deposit! Not to mention that when we asked the neighbors they said they did not hear anything.... We left a day early (without getting any money back and with no deposit) because we could not stand them. They ruined our trip. HORRIBLE HORRIBLE HORRIBLE PLEASE AVOID THESE PLACE AND THOSE HYENAS!

Owner's Response: NEW YEARS NIGHTMARE! Regarding our New Years Eve guests we had 10 months ago. Against our better judgement we let them stay after we found out only one guest was over our minimum age. this was the start of our NIGHTMARE. For our guests to have a 5-star stay we found we needed to use our R.V. at the back of the property to be available at a moments notice. We NEVER enter the rental space without the renters request, to insure guest privacy. .at 4:00 AM thay decided to go outside and play there BOOM BOX S.U.V. and echo the base thru the neighborhood. I got up and asked them to keep the music in the house. This is when the leader stated he was a Chicago cop, I asked to see his I.D. he refused. The second night at 5:00 A.M. they did tire burnouts in the street I didn't say anything. the next day they told me they were leaving A day early, it was there choice. after all the other problems we had with this group that I don't have space to list here we thought good riddance. I did return a portion of their deposit and gave my impacted neighbors what was left of the deposit for putting up with these people.When I told them what I did one of the girls said who cares about your neighbors!!!!!!! That statement will give you some idea what we had to deal with. Now we only rent New Years Eve to known guests . I gave a family member names, addresses and license numbers in case of retaleation . In 2 years of renting through V.R.B.O. I never had to hold back a deposit. This group is a perfect example of NIGHTMARE GUESTS, who every home owner fears will rent their home. I have always wished there was a system to rate renters like they can rate us. We work hard to get a 5 star rating and then you get a group like this that trashes your on line rating and trys to trash your relationship with your neighbors. Just look at our other reviews we must be doing something right!!!! I DITTO THE LAST LINE OF THEIR REVIEW BACK AT THEM !!!!!!

Beautiful with great views

  • 5 of 5

Our vacation was based upon our love of fishing and we hoped to charter a two day trip out on Lake Michigan. Unfortunately due to the weather our trip was canceled but it allowed us to enjoy our beautiful rental. We grilled and fished on the fox river with amazing views. We went into towns and explored some of the quaint shops and eateries. Our hosts Mike and Liz were amazing and welcoming, anything we asked for they were just a phone call away. Mike even took us on a tour of the river in his boat due to the fact our charters were canceled. We plan to come back and try again in the spring and definitely would stay here again.

Wonderful Stay! Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a one week stay at Barrett's Landing on the Fox. House was spacious and well maintained. All amenities stated were present. Beautiful location. Woke up each morning to a picturesque view overlooking the Fox River. Property was close to restaurants and shops in Waterford. Home owners were amazing. Will stay again. Thanks for wonderful memories Liz and Mike!

Very nice property.

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 10 rented this home for a week..it is very well kept.

The owners are on site, and they were very helpful. We had the plug in our boat come loose, and overnight it filled with water. Mike was extremely helpful getting the water out and into his garage, where he had a lot of items that he let us use. He is very knowledgable about boat engines, and his expertise was very helpful. We also needed urgent care and a garage for auto repair, and again they steered us in the right direction. Needless to say, the week was an adventure, but Mike and Liz were so wonderful to us. A 5 star stay..

Great value

  • 5 of 5

We had 10 adults staying one of our nights here for a wedding and this space accommodated us well. It is a very fun and unique space and what a spectacular way to view the first snowfall of the year through the two 20 ft windows! Mike and Liz were very thoughtful and helpful - shoveled the driveway, provided us firewood, and welcomed us a delicious apple pie. I felt that having them on site was a plus, not a negative. We had plenty of privacy and you could not see their RV anywhere from the inside of the house.
