All Wonderful Except the Beds

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed this cabin. It took us awhile to figure out a few things i.e. the lake swimming situation. It was so weedy by the dock but it took us until the 2nd to last day to figure out if we walked out a bit further from the dock there was a wonderful sand bar we could lounge and relax without weeds. The cabin itself was wonderful. Very spacious kitchen, and views of the lake. The beds were great as far as size goes but the one of the king beds is very hard (we plan on bringing a foam topper if we come again) and the other was very squeaky. My mother also slept on the single bed in the downstairs bedroom and she was it was horribly uncomfortable. She said she would try the lower bunk next year but that is not ideal for her to feel claustrophobic.

Our only other complaint would be the entrance into the lake. I have an 86 year old step grandmother that wanted to swim but there wasn't a very easy access into the lake to just swim. She would have to get down on the dock and plop in (which isn't an option for her hip issues) or walk in from the edge was very weedy and mucky. She chose not to swim after looking at the situation. We will also work on something for ourselves to gain better access into the lake if we attend next year as well. Thought it would be nice to have something permanently there for all that attend the cabin to enjoy.

We were also able to rent a wonderful pontoon boat from the neighbor next door that Jim went above and beyond to get worked out for us. It was a wonderful addition to our time at the lake. We were able to explore the lake via the water as well as enjoy another sand bar that is near the reeds in the middle of the lake.

Our family really enjoyed our time away at this cabin!

Owner's Response: Samantha, After your stay, we sloped part of the shoreline next to the dock for easier access to the lake. We are addressing lake access this off season to make it more user friendly. Thank you for your suggestion. Jim

beautiful home in a nice setting

  • 4 of 5

Our family had a great time over the July 4th holiday hanging out at this beautiful home. the only issue is the one others have mentioned, you have to rent towels and linens and when you arrive late at night after a long day of travel having to make up the beds is a bit of a hassle. I understand this policy will be changing which would make this place even better.

Excellent house and view

  • 1 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our 4 days in your beautiful house. The days were rainy but the interior was well organized so we could enjoy card games and conversation. Kitchen was well organized and easy to accommodate a variety of meals. We were able to squeeze in a few rides on the boat between showers. The lower level bedroom allowed my elderly sister in law a 92 yr young person to enjoy the activities. We were able to enjoy the fire pit on one occasion. All in all we as a family had a great time and all were pleased with house and yard. Thanks for a fun vacation. Vivian Banks& family

Nice but could use some welcoming touches

  • 3 of 5

Overall the cabin was nice and can hold a lot of people. Has a huge kitchen and good size living/dining area. Would have been nice if some more welcoming touches were included - like garbage bags, paper towels, grilling utensils, etc. It would make it feel more accommodating. We had to flip burgers on the grill with a spoon because there were no grilling spatulas and it seems ridiculous to have to pack that with you for a vacation. The water access wasn't maintained (had lots of seaweed and debris surrounding the dock) so don't pick this rental if you want to take advantage of the sandy bottom accessible at other parts of this lake.
