"We came in to escape the city with our 2 adult daughters for Labor Day! Serene setting. The home is clean, nice furnishings, granite in kitchen, new bathroom. It is a lake view versus lake front - there is a house in front off to the right and a shed to the left, but you can still see the lake off at an angle. We couldn't get the WIFI to work, so Richard sent someone to fix it Friday evening. We never did get the cable to work, which was only an issue as that was the weekend the hurricane was expected to hit Long Island, and we wanted to see the weather. We planned to grill dinner Friday night , after exploring some vineyards. We checked before we left, and the propane tank was empty and there wasn't a spare in the shed as listed. We filled the tank, had texted Richard, and he had a replacement tank there by the time we returned. He re-imbursed us the $30 we spent. The one kayak that was on the beach was old, dirty and filled with water. They brought us 2 additional ones by morning, but both of those had water in the hull and needed to be drained before use. It was a lovely kayak trip around the quiet lake! The 2 bikes in the shed were old school and covered in leaves and cob webs. They brought us 2 updated bikes, which provided for a great bike ride into town. The kitchen supplies were very basic - hence the reason for needing a "bridal shower" to refresh the supplies. The plates/bowls were all mis matched. No platters or cutting board. Random bath towels. No napkins. Ran out of toilet paper. Richard was very responsive to our needs, but it we wanted to simply relax, and not be texting him for basic things or run out to the store for toilet paper. It was a super fun weekend and a lovely home, but just needed some re-stocking. Be clear ahead of time if you plan to grill, want better kayaks and bikes. Despite our issues, we would rent it again."
