Very helpful host and great amenities!
Our group of 20 was at the house for a team-bonding weekend getaway. The house was very clean and the host was very helpful through the entire process (helping us figure out what activities to do in the area, where to order food, etc) and very responsive. The weather wasn't great, so we didn't get to use the outdoor amenities, but we look forward to coming back in the future!
Excellent Location, Beautiful Grounds, Clean and Every Amenity I could think of.
I rented this property for my younger brother's bachelor party. We arrived Friday, Saturday had a fishing charter all morning, and then back to the house for Saturday night.
First off, the property is right near the highway. You have easy access to run north or south. We had our fishing charter out of Milwaukee so this made our trip up the highway Saturday morning easy as can be. You might think about the noise from the highway but the property is so secluded and surrounded by trees that we never heard a sound.
The grounds are well kept to say the least. All open grass is cut and the owners property is stored out of the way. The fire pit has plenty of seating. The pond is aerated, meaning the water is moved around from small pumps at the bottom, therefore, no algae, no smell, and there is even a row boat if you are looking to play around on the water.
So part of our trip was that we cooked a ton of food. I have rented seven different homes now for trips like this one but seriously this was the first time I came to a house and the grill was a large size family propane grill. There is a charcoal option too, but honestly, Robert (homeowner) made an awesome investment with that grill. I literally brought my own propane grill from my property because I have shown up to junk so many times, but it stayed in my truck all weekend. The kitchen was also fully equipped. Every possible grill utensil, plate, bowl, baking sheets, glassware that you would have at home. And most importantly after all that mess, DISHWASHER! Lifesaving for a group of 10 guys. Also he has all the main appliances you would need to mix drinks, make coffee, toaster, and TWO full size fridges! Cause I mean, ya know, we needed room for a couple beers right?
The all season room with the jacuzzi was fantastic as well. We did not use the jacuzzi, but Robert leaves directions in the house on "how to" operate and take care of everything. There are these huge sliding glass windows that we opened up at night and all sat down at the folding tables Robert has, so we had a big family meal. Perfect fall evening no doubt.
The inside of the home is very warm, like a lot of hunting cabins I have stayed in. Yet, much roomier and there are modern updates, a large flatscreen, and lots of reclining couches and chairs to crash on when we came home from fishing with no energy left. Needed that nap time and the living area has a ton of space for it.
I am sincerely pleased with the whole experience.
Incredible yard & property. The house is in good shape but desperately in need of updating etc
We had a family reunion here and could not have asked for a better host or property/ setting. The setting is truly idealic!! The owner takes a lot of pride in the yard and the house as shown by the maintenance and upkeep. However, overall the house itself was a big disappointment; uncomfortable mattresses that need replacing, bathroom doors that won't shut, furniture that was shot, not enough silverware, counted sleeping space that is in the hallways / main rooms etc. This coupled with a very strange layout of the house causes a very "close" experience.
Luckily for us, the weather was outstanding and we spent very little time inside and purchased plastic silverware and paper products. Again, the owner truly cares and I would expect over time, will improve these items to go along with all the wonderful outside care and maintenance / features.
Thank you for your review. I definitely will take all you said into consideration. I have already taken care of the silverware, it is amazing what disappears from the place. I do plan to get some newer furniture in the screen porch, all the other furniture is brand new in the house. The mattresses are all less than 2 years old. I plan on remodeling the bathroom downstairs this winter. Definitely plan on making the place better. I am glad you enjoyed the property, sorry for the problems you had. Hopefully you can come back to see the improvements!!
Awsum vacation spot!
Perfect spot never been to anything like it before!!
My friends and I had a great weekend here. The house was well cared for and the grounds were gorgeous. We spent a lot of time relaxing in the pool, playing yard games and eating outside. I would love to come back!
There were 11 of us and we all loved it!
The home was very comfortable for all of us. The grounds were great both day and night! There was plenty to do we were lucky and had perfect weather - it was an over all great retreat! Robert was great to work with. He was very helpful and always answered any question within hours! I would highly recommend this home!
