Great relaxing and quiet get away

  • 5 of 5

We booked for 5 but due to sickness only 3 was able to come. We loved the property. We were all senior ladies and did not use the lake. We did go down. This property is ideal for a relaxing get away. It is perfect for a family with kids as everything you would need for a swimming and lake experience is there. The kitchen was well stocked and the beds were so comfortable. There were plenty of linens and towels for a large family. It was close to the Ark and the Creation Museum, which we took advantage of. It might be nice to have that information in the house for visitors. The place was clean and I would surely want to come again. So thank you so very much for the use of your home away from home on the lake.

Perfect lake cottage for a weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the cottage! It had everything we needed for an enjoyable holiday weekend. The hill is a bit steep which might be an issue for someone with knee problems, but we managed it well and it helped us work off the extra calories we consumed that weekend. We would love to go back sometime.

WONDERFUL

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a place to get away from it all but still be a short distance from the convenience of everyday living, this is the place to be. Clean, convenient, quiet, beautiful, all summed up in one word "Wonderful".

Perfect for a get a way for families, women's retreat, men's fishing trips, etc. So glad we chose this place for our church women's retreat, a real place to unwind and rediscover what really matters in life. Make sure to eat at Sugar Daddy's and also stop and get some of the fresh strawberries if the season is right. The community dog "Scarlet" was always a welcome guest and an added pleasure to the trip!!! Just a great place to be!!

Disappointed!

  • 1 of 5

Rented this cottage for my husband's birthday as a surprise. Not the gift I thought I'd be giving him.

Very disappointed!

Blinds broke, cobwebs in the kitchen. Windows need to be cleaned.

Stove and refrigerator need a good cleaning....food drippings in both. The dirty stove was mentioned in a review back in March, '17. I figured the owner would read it and clean it out. I thought wrong! It grossed me out. I can handle quite a bit being from the county but this felt dingy.

Dust bunnies and someone else's hair on the bathroom floor.

The 3 lamp light fixture has 1 white bulb, 1 yellow & 1 non working. All of which held quite the collection of dead bugs.

Mirror has someone else's toothpaste splattered on it.

Not sure if it was mold or dirt on the shower curtain.

Found dog shampoo in the shower along with several partially used shower products.

This was not my idea of a romantic weekend.

It does sleep eight because there are beds/futons/daybeds everywhere.

Driveway is on a slope and I had to put my truck into 4wd to pull out. Not super easy for accessibility. Vehicle doors would either whip open or slam shut on us because of the pitch.

Again my main issue was with the inside of the house. I can handle that things are not updated and new but I think it's unacceptable that it wasn't clean.

My suggestion to the home owner is hire someone to professionally clean it before renting it out.

It rained most of the time during our stay so we did not try any lake activities.

TV reception was horrible. Tried to find a hotel that wasn't booked up...with no success obviously otherwise I would have left.

Should have stayed home. Not at all worth what I paid for it!

Great family weekend

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time at the lake house. The kids loved the video games and the paddle boat. We spent one day at the ark encounter, what an amazing biblical experience. Thanks for sharing your house. Carie
