Cozy Lake House with Wonderful Deck and Outdoor Kitchen .

Bedrooms 3
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 3 full Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Cozy lake house that is a home away from home.

All the amenities of home with a few extras all rolled into the perfect loction on Lake Hamilton.

Spend the evening relaxing on the tri-level deck under the covered bar, or cook supper in the full outdoor kitchen as you watch the kids fish along the 130 ft. lake wall. Catch some rays or take a quick dip in the lake as you enjoy the covered boat dock.

When inside, you can enjoy a game of pool as you watch a ball game on the big screen TV.

Split bedrooms are set up perfectly. You can open the sliding glass doors in the master bedroom and enjoy a cool lake breeze, or you can light a fire in the fireplace for a more romantic setting. There is a spacious bathroom in this larger than normal master bedroom. The second bedroom also has a large shower and bathroom associated with it. The third bedroom is right across the hall from the third bathroom which has a larger than normal tiled walk in shower..

The house is fully furnished with linen, towels, kitchen utensils, washer and dryer.

There is a efficiency apartment located on the same property that has a full time renter. The efficiency renter has no privileges to the home, deck or dock.

DISCLAMER: My wife and I both work full time. We are not millionaires who are lounging by the pool all day. We have our own mortgage and kids that we are raising. We live a state away from the home and rely on a family friend to manage the home. We rent the home in order to try and keep it in the family. We make no profit from renting.The money is used to pay the mortgage, utilities, and pay the insurance and taxes. The home is a 60 year old home. It has been well cared for and updated. If you are expecting to stay in a Million dollar lake house, you will be disappointed. The home is very nice for what it is.

Keywords: Lake house with double deck and outdoor kitchen overlooking private boat dock on Lake Hamilton. Year around water access.

Nice Lake access, but house is nothing to write home about

  • 3 of 5


* Lake and dock access was nice

* Pool table was fun to have

* outdoor kitchen was well equipped

* back decks were nice for hanging out

*geese and ducks in the yard from time to time


* house need a lot of maintenance

* no one place where everyone can gather for a meal (had to split up into groups to eat)

* additional fees really add up

* checkout was made stressful based on the owners threat of $ for every half hour late you are checking out at 10AM

* Propane bottle was very low, didn't know if it would last

* Drive way is a nightmare! (Back into the parking space if at all possible!!)

* Only caught 3 perch all weekend from the dock ( not owners fault, but just know this is not a good fishing location)

* House had 7 plugin air fresheners on full when we walled in, had to air out the house for a while so we could stand it

* main lake was very very trafficy

* rat poop in closet

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. I recommend that anyone wishing to stay please review all photos of the home before deciding to rent. You can clearly see that the dinning room is only set up for seating of 4, and the 2 bar areas have seating for 4 each. I stress the 10:00 am checkout time in order to give the cleaning crew time to make the home ready for the next guest. I am sure you appreciated the home being clean and ready when you arrived and hopefully you can understand me wanting the home ready for the next person. Yes, there is limited parking, although we were there this weekend with a surburan and a Ford F250 dually with a 24ft ski boat and had no trouble parking. Yes, there is traffic on the lake....it is a very popular destination!! As far as not catching much fish from the dock, do I really need to address that?

The house needed more maintenance than has been done.

  • 2 of 5

I felt that as the one who chose the property, I was responsible for the problems with the property, so I spent the time apologizing.

Owner's Response: First of all, I really appreciate any comments and suggestions made by guest, as I am a full state away from the home and rely on such comments to keep me posted on the upkeep of the home. I rely on hired help for maintenance and cleaning. That being said, before this guest even arrived, they were making comments and asking questions as if they were expecting to be staying in a multimillion dollar home that would be immaculate. My home is a home, not a show place. It has been lived in by my late mother-in-law and visited numerous times by her children and grandchildren. The photos that she sent me were of nicks on the furniture, scraps on the bathroom cabinets. Every day things that happen to home that is lived in. My maintenance person and myself tried our best to please her, but to no avail. I offered her a full refund prior to her arrival which she declined. After multiple communications during her first day at the home, I made the same offer of a full refund. She wanted the refund, but also wanted to continue to stay for the full rental period. My comment was that if the home was so bad that she would need a refund, I would not think that she would want to continue to stay. My offer of a refund and her vacating the home was declined.

Minutes from the airport and historic downtown, minutes from the horse track. This home is exactly 51/2 miles from the race track.
