Another wonderful week at the lake

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd family vacation at Roger and Claire's lake house and we are already planning next year!

We love everything about it, we feel instantly at home when we drive up the driveway.

The location is the absolute best, we feel we are the only ones there. From sitting on the deck in the morning with coffee, to watching the sunsets from the dock and swing. Not one boat is left unused, and the house has everything needed to cook in every night.

Didn't see any bear this year but plenty of loons calling and the deer crossing over from the island were seen a few times!

Glad to have a place pet friendly too, the dogs love the water as much as we all do!

Thanks for another great year!

Another fantastic vacation.

  • 4 of 5

This was our 2nd year at this property; We love it here- this year we rented the extra space above the garage. It was awesome and the space is generous. Roger is always attentive and the check in/out is easy. As a family we are tormented, we feel as if we should explore another part of the lake next year however, yet we can't imagine staying anywhere different so I think this is becoming our new family tradition. We highly recommend this property! It has everything you could every need for a fun week at the lake.

Wonderful vacation, location, and lake house!

  • 5 of 5

This was year #2 for us and we are already looking forward to next year. We felt at home from the time we arrived til we left. We found the house clean and very comfortable, not real fancy, but just what our family with little ones

and dogs wanted, very homey.

We had a few showers the first day but the weather was great. We did a lot of boating fishing and swimming and spent morning til dark outside enjoying the great location.

Saw the mother deer and 2 babies twice crossing from the island, loons were calling everyday, just beautiful to be surrounded by all the nature!

Also want to mention all the great steam boats that went by, the grandchildren got such a kick out of them when they tooted at them. Many more this year, really something to see.

The new swing was a great addition this year, our aunt claimed it and spent many hours relaxing and reading there, perfect location too for sunsets.

We ate in every night, a lot of great food and grilling. Bart's has great fish and especially love the homemade fish and clam chowder. Fresh corn, veggies and delicious desserts from the local farm, no need to go out!

Roger and Claire have been great, Roger has gotten right back to me anytime I have contacted him, very happy with their service.

We are very happy we found such a great spot and look forward to many more family vacations.

Awesome Week at Lake

  • 5 of 5

This experience has far exceeded our expectations. This was our first year renting a house in the area, we will not be searching any further. This place had everything we could have possibly needed. The location is great, the views are beautiful- the boat, bikes, canoes and kayaks are an added bonus. The owner was very helpful in answering all of my questions during the reservation process and he and his team were very awesome in responding to any of our needs. We hope to be back next year. We didn't need the additional space over the garage this year, but I can tell you that next year we probably will because I am bringing more people to share in this experience. There were plenty of nice towels, linens, utensils, pots and pans etc. Thank You Roger -Our entire family (ages 14 - 73) all had an amazing time! We really enjoyed the evenings watching a deer swim across from the island and listening to the loons.

Needs lots of updating!

  • 2 of 5

We stayed here with another couple for a week. We were disappointed with how old everything was. The house definitely needs lots of updating. The rooms were all very dimly lit. Sometimes that's not an issue, but the bathroom was really bad. Also, there were three televisions in the house. We could only get the cable to work on one of them so all four of us had to sit in the sunroom (where the furniture is ancient) the entire week to watch anything. We were there during football season so this did not make the one in our party who doesn't like football happy at all. That was really a shame because the tv in the living room was much nicer--just would not work! We also felt there was not an adequate supply of washcloths. Maybe we just couldn't find them but we sure tried. I agree with the other review about all the old condiments in the fridge. With all the rules, maybe you should add to completely empty refrigerator when you leave. You have no way of knowing how old they are or who has eaten from them. I did not like having to use bottled water to brush my teeth--that was really strange. Maybe we were expecting too much by booking this place, but it certainly wasn't up to what we expected. I would describe it as old, dim, and dank. Being from Georgia, chances are we will not be in this area again, but I definitely would prefer to find another place to stay next time. Just disappointed.

Owner's Response: We always find it interesting that the tenants that complain the most are usually the ones that never call or report issues they find at the house WHEN THEY ARRIVE OR WHILE THEY ARE STAYING THERE. This review was submitted 4 months after they stayed there, when memories are not fresh in the mind. Here's the email text they sent me one week after they left: "The house is very nice and homely, kitchen stocked well, great deck and shed and loved the old fashioned pine paneling. That brought back memories of my childhood home & my in-laws farm house. House has a very comfortable feel to it." At the time of her stay, washcloths were intermixed with towel in two plastic storage bins. My cleaning service found 12 there after they left--certainly more than only 2 they found. We have since done away with the bins & now all towels and linens are kept in a large utility cabinet with each shelf area clearly marked with each item and size. Can't miss them now. When we checked out the LR TV, it was on the wrong Source setting. Set on DVD (which needs DVD for signal) and not HDMI 1 that goes to cable box. Had they called my Property Manager or me, we could have easily told them how to change it and they would have gotten a great picture, plus 70 more channels. The MBA, as well as the rest of the house, uses Energy Efficient light bulbs, which mean it takes a minute or two to get to their full brightness. We are slowly changing all of these over to LED ones and probably will also be putting a light bar in this bathroom. There are no overhead lights in any of the BRms, so the end table energy light provides their light. Condiments in the refrigerator are left to save money from every person every week buying their own ketchup, mustard, dressings, mixes, etc. They are all removed in May, Aug, and Oct, other times periods of rental activity. Each year we poll are upcoming guests to see if they want us to continue this policy, and it continues. Those that don't like it, as always, can buy all their own, as well as throw out ones they don't like or seem "too old." We only ask people to replace the common items they use up, like foil, baggies, cling wrap, wax paper, etc. After I responded to their email with what we found, their response was: "Couldn't figure out remote (TV),----chalk it up to being too old; we needed a teenager there to figure it out. If we're ever in the area again, we'll definitely contact you." I say, If there's a problem, Call.

Great Weekend Getaway

  • 4 of 5

Our family just had a great weekend at this lake house. The setting is quiet and peaceful but with lots of options for fun! The kayaks, canoes and the rowboat were all great fun and the big deck was well used for meals and relaxing. This place has all the comforts of home so it was easy to prepare meals for a crowd but there are also lots of options for eating out nearby. The house was clean and comfortable. Listening to the loons on the lake was a special treat. We would certainly consider another visit here.
