A terrific lower-level basement of a lovely family home

  • 2 of 5

This rental clearly belongs to a lovely family home on a great location of the lake, but you should be acutely aware that it is indeed only the lower-portion of a family's larger vacation home that you are renting. While the lake-side of this vacation rental is terrific (nice views, great dock, large deck), the rental feels no different than a basement when inside. The constantly running dehumidifiers (valiantly fighting the below-ground odors), mismatched and overly-cluttered furniture, after-thought kitchen and the stairs leading up to the locked first floor are constant reminders that you are indeed in a subordinate-level environment. If you expect this and know that it is the bottom/basement-level-only of a wonderful house, you will enjoy yourself undoubtedly.

Since our stay some of the description has changed here (we had a conversation about expectations with the very-nice owner) for the better and it now spells out more clearly what you are getting into, but still missing is the idea that when it rains, you and your family will be eating on the floor because the only "dining room" is a large plastic table on the deck.

Let me be very clear, this is a wonderful family vacation home. It's hard to imagine anyone finding issue with it...but from our experience, this truly wonderful family home should remain a wonderful family home. She's just not quite ready for renting out to strangers with expectations that can range so widely. There's clearly too much history of fantastic times in it for this family to think anything needs to change within it. But it needs some more objective attention before it submits itself to the use of those with expectations when money is involved.

Owner's Response: The rental is our original cottage that we used for our family and rented for 10 yrs before we built it up in 1991 We bought a cottage on the side of a hill we did not buy a basement 34 years ago . There is a table in the family room with 2 chairs and 2 other chairs in the. Bedrooms and two folding chairs in the closet under the stairs which can be used for dining summer and winter THe kitchen wAs Updated in 91 and all the pictures shown in the add depict exactly what you are getting when you rent . This is the only review we have that is so negative and we have been renting for 34 years It's not the Ritz but a Vt cottage on a beautiful .lake Please read the recent review written by the renter the week previous to the unhappy renter The Caseys

Beautiful Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The pictures posted for this property do not do this location justice. You are right on the water! There are two decks plus the dock. The picturesque views are non stop. A bald eagle landed on the small island across from this cottage every day. Swimming, boating and fishing every day. We had a fantastic stay! Tom, at the neighboring Tyson Village Store provided additional kayak and paddle board rentals (at a reasonable rate). He dropped off and picked up the rentals. So convenient. We had a great meal at Sam's Steakhouse. A few other restaurants looked very good as well, but we had most meals at the cottage. There is a very large and clean gas grill provided. The Buttermilk falls made for a great afternoon swimming in the basins and waterfalls. Jim, the property owner was very accommodating and helpful from the start. I would definitely rent here again.
