Beautiful lakeside property
We had a wonderful time at this lovely, spotless and well-stocked home with our two young kids. We enjoyed the views, the quiet in the mornings, the loons on the lake, and the dock with a large selection of floaties. The only negative was the stairs down to the dock which were difficult for our three and five year olds to manage. There is a park on the lake with a kid friendly beach nearby though, and less steep alternate path down to the dock around the house. Jirina was a thoughtful and attentive hostess. Thank you!
Lovely property, beautiful location, but little privacy
All in all, we had a enjoyable stay at Jirina’s place on beautiful Ruby Lake. The cabin was uber clean and had everything at hand you could ever want! The beds were comfy and the kitchen was a breeze to navigate and cook in. I brought along my two kids and their two besties (all 11 year olds), as well as our dog.
Unfortunately, we had a bit of a mishap in the first 10 minutes of our visit! Although the house was advertised as kid- friendly they had a metal tipped dart board not-so-thoughtfully placed smack between a picture window and a glass door with only an inch or 2 of “wiggle room” on each side. Well, lo and behold, my 11 year old boy missed the board, hit the glass door and shattered it! Yikes! Jirina handled it gracefully and promptly. She was thoughtful and thorough in taping it up and making sure it was safe and secure. Given the placement of the dart board, I think this was a disaster waiting to happen, however I fully anticipated that we would pay for the damage and I had no problem doing so! However, I did not appreciate how Pavel handled this discussion with me the day before we left. He walked into our space while we were making dinner and proceeded to bark at me, speak to me in a disrespectful tone, telling me I was “lucky” that they weren’t charging me for their time in securing a replacement window, and allude that the window was broken intentionally. Totally stressed me out. In the end, I handed him the cash and was happy to be done with it.
The lake was gorgeous and warm and perfect for swimming and paddling about. We brought along a SUP and took advantage of the 2 boards the house came with, alone with the giant lily pad (big hit!) While the dock could be a bit challenging to access if you were less agile due to the lack of stairways and slippery terrain, we managed fine. The owners had a pretty impressive speed boat docked the entire time of our stay which took up the majority of the dock , but we worked around it.
It should be well noted that the vacation rental listed here is the upper level of the garage their super beautiful main home, which is 25 ft away and overlooks the dock. We were under the distinct impression that the rental was a stand alone structure and offered privacy. This is not the case. There was actually very little privacy from the owner’s family. That said, Jirina and the teenaged girls are lovely, warm, kind and gracious people who were nothing less than delightful.
Wonderful family holiday!
We had a great time at Jirina and Pavel’s property with my parents and sister and her husband, plus our dog. The house was spotless and comfortable and had everything we needed, plus a beautiful view from the balcony. Getting down to the lake was a bit tricky for my older parents as there are a lot of stairs, but we managed! The lake is gorgeous and peaceful and the swimming lovely. We had fun using all the water toys generously provided too!
Keep in mind that there is no cell service at this end of the lake and no wifi at the house (if this is important to you!).
Jirina was a great communicator and very helpful with any questions we had.
All in all a fantastic stay!
Clean and modern coach house on a beautiful lakefront property! Great for families.
It was wonderful. I would recommend your beautiful property to everyone, Jane
It was an amazing experience. Our host went over the top to ensure that we had a wonderful stay And we did. Jane
Immaculate, super-well equipped, beautiful location
We stayed for a few days over spring break with our two small children, and had a great, quiet family vacation. We have stayed in a number of vacation properties over the years, but this one was one of the most lovely and well-appointed. The owners have an incredible attention to detail and have somehow thought of everything. We had fun cooking and wondering, "Do you think they have x?"... "Of course they do! Here it is right here in this intuitive location!".
We were able to enjoy the gorgeous lake, explore awesome hikes in the area, make beautiful meals, and finish off the days with great sleeps. Top marks.
Our private dock is a great spot for swimming and sun tanning. We have a complimentary kayak, 2 paddle boards, and a pedal boat for guests to enjoy. We provide lifejackets. It is also a good destination for fishing.
