Photos do not do justice for this place! Very clean and plenty of room for our family of six.

  • 5 of 5

You could not ask for a better place. There are 6 in our family so we had more room than we needed. Beach is very well kept, and we spent several hours playing volleyball. Water was clean and warm. Very few people on the lake all week so we pretty much had the whole lake to ourselves. Kayaks were a huge plus and the kids all had fun using them. Really nothing negative can be said about this vacation house! I'm sure we will come back to this location, but we did not make a reservation because we can't plan this far in advance with our schedules. If you're looking to get away and relax this is the perfect destination. We did not want to visit any attractions or parks, so I can't say if this is a good or bad location for that type of vacation. We also brought our dog and even he loved everything about the place! I would be the first to say if there were any issues and I can tell you there were NONE!!

Great house, even though we had torrential rain!

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for our family and friend gathering for a high school graduation. It did rain the entire weekend, making it difficult to enjoy the lake as much as we had hoped, but the house was great for family games, great kitchen for preparing meals, and the evening gator and otter shows were fun. We loved kayaking and the hot tub.

Everything was clean and comfortable, with the wow factor of being so nicely decorated. Any questions or concerns we had were immediately answered or dealt with.

The only downside (besides the rain) was that we were not able to manuever getting our boat and truck onto the property due to the twists and turns in the road. We would not have been able to put it into the water on the property as the incline was not steep enough anyway. But, the Carney Island boat ramp was so convenient and close and we were able to lock the wheels on the trailer to keep it there instead. This is not an owner's issue, but just to help others with bigger boats understand the realities of the property.

Thanks for sharing your home with us!

This cottage is everything it claims to be!

  • 5 of 5

No matter how good the pictures, no matter how prompt the replies from the owners when you have questions, no matter how glowing the reviews from other renters, you never quite know what to expect when you rent a property online. (Well, at least I don't.) I'm telling you the Taylor's cottage exceeded my expectations.

What you see in the pictures is what you get. The inside is both beautiful and comfortable. It is equipped with so many items from books and board games to a hot tub and boats that there is sure to be something for everyone.

And the owners were always prompt in answering any questions I had from booking through check-out. You can't go wrong with this property.

Only a few words of advice:

Do NOT use Apple's mapping program to direct you to the house. It tries to take you to the house via a road that doesn't exist. Google Maps works fine.

The driveway is well marked, but there are two houses on the right that look like they might be what you are looking for. They aren't. The Taylor house is straight ahead and to the left of the driveway.

There is wonderful park just down the road from the cottage: Carney Island Recreation Center. If you have children in your party, it has nice playground equipment. We also used it as a location for family photographs. It had many beautiful settings to chose from.

This was a wonderful property and the Taylors are a joy to work with.

Pictures Don’t Do this Property Justice

  • 5 of 5

My now wife and I rented the home for our wedding. The property is spectacular. Excellent location for a wedding. Ample parking. Large deck and patio for entertainment and plenty of backyard with afternoon shade. We entertained about 60 people with ease. David and Darlene were very accommodating and always responded promptly. I will certainly be renting again.

The Taylor lake house is...

  • 3 of 5

The Taylor lake house is a very specious house that made for a comfortable stay for my family. The large water front back yard with the beach was great for the kids to play.

A few downfalls, the back yard had a lot of dog crap from the neighboring dogs, which often visited the back yard. We didn’t mind the dogs how ever don’t turn your back or they take your lunch right off the picnic table.

The metallic smell of the indoor water was a little difficult to get past. The strong oder of sewage in the bathrooms, especially the beautifully renovated master made it almost impossible to brush your teeth. Once you get pas these things it was a very nice stay.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your review.............. This helps us understand issues that we can quickly and positively react to in order to create a better experience for our guests. The neighbors 2 dogs are friendly show dogs that love our beach, however, we have taken immediate urgent steps with the neighbors to contain their dogs. As well we have enacted a protocol for the lawn maintenance crew to look for this and correct on each visit. The odor that sometimes manifests at points of water in bathrooms is the natural well water that is typically found in all homes around this lake. It has a high natural mineral content and although it is good and healthy to ingest, it sometimes can have an unpleasant odor. This is one reason we provide a reverse osmosis water filtration system in the kitchen for pure and tasteless drinking water. We have immediately dispatched a water purification company to inspect and provide us with solution options. Thanks again for your stay and review. We would love to have you come back so you can experience the improvements. Please save this review response for $50.00 off your next stay.!
