Lovely property, but...
This is a lovely house on a beautiful spot, but I have been renting houses two times a year for 15 years with my family, and never had as many problems as I had this past week. Vacasa is much more difficult to work with than a homeowner. I would really think twice before renting with them. But there were issues with the house too. The leaf to the dining room table did not fit, so eating around the dining table was a real challenge for us. The garbage bags did not fit in the kitchen garbage cans, so we had to buy our own. They had 8 colanders, but no steak knives. The house had a general musty smell, it didn't bother me as much, but my other guests were bothered by it. The waterfront was great, and they have 3 kayaks and plenty of life jackets, floats, and water guns for kids to use, but don't try using the canoe: it was busted when we got there.
Hi Kyle, thank you for your feedback. We have passed your suggestions and concerns along to our local staff, and we will be looking into making updates to our home. We hope to have another chance to impress you.
Summer on Watchik lake
For the money we paid, we expected a much cleaner home. The electricity kept blowing the circuit breaker, to the point that 2 lamps were brought over. The smell of mold and mildew was very uncomfortable to the point that our clothes smelled of it.
We apologize for the electrical issues you had to deal with during your visit. An electrician has repaired the issue so everything is now in great working order! We have also completed a full deep clean of the home to address any odor issues. Thank you!
I can't say enough positive about our stay!! Our friends from England came to our sons wedding and we booked this beautiful home for the week after to enjoy each other's company! It was large enough so our group of 7 adults had their own space and when we were all together the main kitchen and living room is roomy with a beautiful view of the lake!
The kitchen has everything you could ever need to cook nice home cooked meals..and it has nice quality cookware to do so.. We never ate out once we just stayed and BBQ out and cooked nice meals in.. Even though it is close to many places to eat out if you prefer to do so!
We played games..kayaked had a campfire and just really relaxed!! The jet tub in the master bedroom was a nice bonus as well!
The home was very clean and had a nice homey feeling! As other reviews had stated the lower suite needs a bit of updates to it but honestly that is not a deal breaker at all!!
We all felt very blessed that someone with such a beautiful home would be willing to rent it out! We took care of it as if it was our own and we are going to book it again next year for the same group of us to reunite! If you're unsure about booking this home I will assure you that you will not be disappointed!! We have rented many homes and this one by far is our favorite!!
The Knox family!!
Beautiful time in New England!
Such a wonderful home on a beautiful lake! The kitchen had every gadget you could imagine. The beds were comfy and the bath tub heavenly! The house is nice and clean. Plenty of linens and dish ware. Our hosts were friendly and helpful( thanks for the cookbook!). Our stay could not have been better! Loved the area as well, lots to do. In short, we had the quintessential New England autumn vacation. Thank you!!!
