  • A Great Cousins Reunion -- Then a Frustration

    "As vacation rental owners ourselves, we are very aware of the incredible effort it takes to keep a home well furnished, clean and in good repair. This home hits all the marks in many ways: It is roomy and nicely furnished. We all remarked on the very nice artwork throughout the house. The beds are very comfortable. The kitchen is large and very well appointed -- there were even wineglasses and good knives! The beautiful deck has lots of comfortable dining and relaxing choices. We had deer in the back yard every morning while we enjoyed our coffee. It is very, very clean and, aside from a few small maintenance issues which were quickly addressed, in good repair. It's a short walk to the beach, and close to lots of good places to eat, wineries, and other attractions. The owner, Kathleen, was friendly and attentive in the rental process and while we were there. As an owner, I am probably pickier than some -- but here are a few "cons": When we arrived there was someone else's wilted leftover salad, uncovered in the serving bowl, still in the refrigerator. Not awful, but still a little gross -- and we wondered if the refrigerator had been wiped out before our arrival. The first two nights we were there, there were no lightbulbs in the light fixtures on the front of the house. It was a real safety issue. That being said, when we expressed our concern to Kathleen she had it fixed the same day. Several of the lamps and light fixtures were also missing bulbs. We could not get the gas fireplace to work when we first arrived. Kathleen came quickly the next morning and had a repairman there within minutes. There are no towel bars in 2 of the bathrooms. One of the sofas shown in the photos here is no longer in the living room. Not a big deal, but it would've been nice for our group of 7 to have had a few more places to "sit soft." My biggest issue came after our rental. Kathleen was extremely slow in returning our deposit. She even suggested that we might be liable for damages we did not create -- issues that were existing when we arrived. As vrbo owners we are VERY conscientious renters, so it was a bit offensive to be unjustly accused. We were planning a return visit with other friends to explore wineries, but are now not as likely to return. My advice? Stay here, enjoy the beautiful home, but document the condition upon arrival and departure. And be prepared to wait for your refund."

  • Great Family Vacation

    "We had a wonderful time. We brought our daughter and 2 grandkids for a back home visit. Coincidentally, my best friend's daughter and family live 3 doors down. The boys had a blast with their new friends, fishing, kayaking and roasting marshmallows. Thanks Robin for a great stay."

  • Great place for the price!

    "Nice little cottage with great lake frontage. Nice dock and yard. Neighbors are very friendly. Less than a 10 minute drive from town (Indian River). Paula's and Christopher's have excellent breakfasts and Vivio's was great for dinner (get there early as it's a popular place). Mackinaw and Gaylord are only a 30 minute drive in either direction. Would recommend for couples or a small family and those who travel with pets."

  • Enjoyable Place to Stay

    "The house is located a little ways from the lake but there are several access sites. We enjoyed the hospitality and home and will be hoping to stay again. There is plenty of room in the house and the owners were more than amicable with everything. The home is nice and roomy with several amenities. Thank you to the Quinn's for sharing their home with our family."
