Nice view overlooking the lake

  • 3 of 5

We enjoyed our family get together at Lake Fonda with the beautiful decks over looking the lake and lovely sunset with the friendly ducks. The beds were comfortable and the shower was nice and large but the faucets leaked in the shower. The kitchen was cute but needed basic supplies to cook with so we called the owners and they supplied us with some basic essentials. (We do wish the owners were more friendly though) We were looking forward to using the paddle boat except it had a crack in one of the seats so we were afraid of using it and we also noticed after a big rain storm the boat looked like it was ready to sink so we quickly bailed out the water from the paddle boat to try to salvage and save it and after all that hard work the next day it still had some water in the bottom. We always try to respect others peoples property but some things can't be helped. We took a beautiful picture of the lake at sunset with the ducks and also of the house from the lake but do not see a way to post it.

Owner's Response: Thank you for reviewing our lakefront apartment. We are glad you enjoyed your family get together. Lakefront Munro is a beautiful family friendly place to share with family and friends! You are correct, the paddle boat was ready for retirement and after maintenance efforts it has been officially retired. During stays and after stays, all cleaning and maintenance issues are addressed. We are glad you let us provide quick response to fulfill your basic essential kitchen needs. The kitchen is fully stocked with all needs, however there are times when things are misplaced and needs are unique. If we don't have something, upon request we immediately provide it. A new refrigerator has been added! Thank you again for staying at our friendly and beautiful lake front apartment!

Accomodations were as pictured, although living space seemed larger.

  • 4 of 5

There is a beautiful view and walk out to Lake Fonda. I have 3 children, so breakfast and snacks in the kitchen were perfect for us. My husband was worried about privacy and noise from upstairs, but it was not an issue. We spent most of our time visiting friends nearby in Milford, and we spent time at Kensington Park. We were very comfortable here and glad the property was clean, comfortable and available for our long weekend.

Pretty Good for the Price

  • 4 of 5

To be clear about what you are getting when you rent this place, I'll try to be as straightforward as possible. This isn't a nice hotel. You're staying in somebody's finished walk-out basement, on a lake. People live in the house, and you can hear it every time they walk or their dog walks around upstairs.

The lake was nice, the yard was nice, and it had everything you needed for a stay, including a stove, oven, sink, fridge, and laundry. None of the inside was particularly "nice", but it was functional. It had 2 beds, which were okay, and a couch, which was okay, and a shower which was okay. There were 25 steps from the driveway to the front door, which made unloading luggage for the family a mild pain.

But, the take away I guess is that it was a pretty good place for the price. We paid $156/night for the 2 bedrooms centrally located to where we needed to be, which is a good deal when compared to area hotels seeking the same.

Relaxing and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time. Very relaxing. Kitchen had all the necessary utensils, dishes, pots and pans. Loved using the outdoor grill. Beds were very comfortable. Shower is large. Plenty of hot water. So nice to have washer and dryer! Enjoyed fishing from the dock. There are a lot of stairs so it is not good if you have a problem with stairs. Close to everything, but need a car.

This property was exactly what we needed!!!

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful, quiet, convenient! We were in town for National skating competition and the lake is across the street from the rink! The arts festival was 10 minutes to downtown. It was a wonderful getaway from the busy rink, where we could relax by the water in the warm sun. All the comforts of home. Close to everything.
