Great location and attentive owner
Our stay on Sunset Lake was great! The house was more than enough for the 8 adults who stayed there. It also suited us well when we hosted a dinner for an additional 3 guests on one of the days. With 3 levels, a decks, and a patio, the house provided separate areas for us to hang out together or isolate ourselves individually. The beach and fire pit made for enjoyable evenings too.
We had no trouble finding everything needed to make our stay enjoyable, including a gas barbecue, kitchen utensils, wine glasses, a kayak, a canoe, board games, and much more. Upscale appliances, 4 TVs, huge beds in 2 of the rooms, and an exceptional view made us feel pampered.
The lake isn't huge, but it provided enough space to get a moderate workout kayaking and canoeing. Since the October air was cool, only 2 of us took a quick dip in the water, which is amazingly clear. We were treated to several varieties of birds visiting the bird feeders, and we got to see loons, an osprey (I think), and a beaver. A number of moderate hikes are within a few miles of the house, including a hike to the top of Straightback Mountain, which you can access by kayaking/canoeing across the lake.
Craig was a very attentive owner. He provided clear instructions for using the TVs and offered advice for activities and local destinations. When we had a problem with the heater, he responded immediately and worked to resolve the problem quickly. He was always available and interested in ensuring that we enjoyed our stay.
Although work on the road in front of the house was in progress and woke us up at around 6:45 a.m. some mornings. It wasn't a problem and couldn't be helped. If you go when it's cool, ask about using the gas fireplace in the main room. We didn't know how to use it but would have enjoyed the ambiance. Ultimately, with Craig's help, we tried using it on our last full day when we had problems with the heater; however, it wasn't working correctly, probably because of air in the line. I'm sure Craig will have this fixed.
All in all, it was a great trip even though the leaves weren't quite at their peak and we had a couple days of rain. The house contributed by providing a comfortable home base for our stay. Maybe we'll be back a little later in October sometime in the future to see foliage at its best.
Great property; great stay; great owner who was readily available to answer all our questions!
Beautiful home, clean and ready when we arrived. The owner was helpful and attentive. The water is clear with a sandy bottom. The amenities of the house were great, anything we looked for we found. Great house for children and adults.
Amazing Property, Owner and Accommodations!!
This property is everything and more than the pictures portray. The home is beautiful and accommodates everyone comfortably. Great outdoor seating both on the beach and the decks. The home is equipped very well for entertaining with every kitchen essential and plenty of them!! The home was very clean and furnished beautifully compared to most. Craig spares no cost to make you feel at home. The perfect property to make many family memories. Can't wait for our family week next year!!! Craig is very personable to deal with and responds very quickly to any questions. - can't ask for more than that. The property is EVERYTHING Craig says it is. It was a pleasure working with him. Thank you Craig for a wonderful memory making week!!
We had a wonderful week at Sunset Lake! The house held 6 adults, 2 teens and 2 little ones perfectly! Everything we needed was there - paper products, laundry and supplies, linens, etc etc, and from an entertainment standpoint there are games, a kayak, a canoe, plenty of tvs with every station possible, and lots of fun on the private beach and swimming in the clear, warm lake! The little downtown area nearby had a few cute spots to eat and shop., and other hot spots are just 25/30 min away. Would definitely recommend. Craig was a great host, very responsive and on top of it. Thanks for a great stay!
Lovely home on peaceful lake
Lovely home on a gorgeous, quiet, pristine lake. It rained almost every day, but we found plenty to do... even taught the kids how to play poker! Great fishing right off the dock. Sizable sandy beach area good for young kids. Clean swimming area. Could fit our family of five in the kayak and canoe provided - fun to paddle to the islands and beaver dam. The beautiful loons were daily visitors. Craig was responsive and easy to work with. We hope to return!
