Guestbook comments from the owner


I just wanted to send a quick note to say that our family SO enjoyed our time at your property on Sand Lake this past weekend. We enjoyed beautiful accommodations in a perfect setting with wonderful weather. Our goal was to enjoy the water, play games, and enjoy a camp fire and that goal was met many times over. Thank you!

Again, we LOVED our time at the property. If you are planning to rent the property next summer again we are interesting in reserving/booking again!! Birttany L.

We've seen it many times on the site but never imagined it to be so big! We had our family Christmas there. Our overnighters exceeded the 12 person occupancy limit, so the owner offered us an opportunity to rent the lower level as well! Extra bedrooms AND another kitchen! Best Christmas EVER! We had so much fun. We will definitely be coming back here!

The Lake is very nice

  • 3 of 5

Easy to find the house. We did a lot of swimming, fishing off the dock, & rented a pontoon, & fishing boat from neighboring resort. Says there's wave runners available but they weren't, so that was disappointing. The house was nice but there's a lot that was broken/not working. Paddle boat covered in bees & broken too. Swimming dock stuck on land. We had fires outside but we brought the wood. We did relax & played games. Weather was fantastic beside a few storms at night.

Owner's Response: Victoria, Thank you for staying at our place. We apologize about any misunderstanding on the waverunners, they are supplied (noted in listing/rental info) by a 3rd party and need to be rented from them. We were not informed someone had broken our paddleboat!! Bee's are in rural areas like this but not sure why they would be on our paddleboat! We do apologize for the broken boat and will repair!! I will also get more notices posted in our information.

House on Sand Lake, Moose Lake, MN

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay very much. The house was clean, and accommodated our party very well. The kitchen was great, the beds were adequate. We were close to the grocery store and the lake was beautiful! We had to call once during the two weeks because of a power outage that caused air to collect in the water pipes and so there was a howling pipe that we couldn't reach. The repairman came early the next morning and we were good to go. No further problems with the property. I would make one suggestion and that is to replace the hideabed couch in the living room. That is like sleeping on the gravel road. I would recommend, and have recommended, Home Away to our friends. We were well cared for.

Don't be fooled. This is not a Chalet or a cabin. This is a house that happens to be on a lake. There is no privacy as homes are immediately adjacent. This is a home on a lake with a suburb appearance and feel. There are no pictures of the back of the house because it is unappealing. When we pulled up there was schlock and junk piled around. There were people running from the house with cleaning supplies in tow. The owner met us. He informed us he would be "in the machine shed across the street" if we needed anything for the weekend. I have rented numerous VRBO properties and never had an owner as BIG BROTHER across the street. The carpet in master bedroom had large stains. The house smelled like stale cleaning supplies.

We left and did not stay at the property that weekend.

If you are looking for a private piece of property that is truly a Chalet or has a cabin-like feel, this is not it. There is a view of the lake. The owner offered to refund our money. I have yet to see it. :(

Owner's Response: Kim, Your review is very much false!! The folks leaving the property when you arrived were the caretakers that just cleaned the VRBO. The cleaning smell you talk about was from the home being CLEANED. The owner (myself) that was across the street was there working on the other property just that day, there is not a house there, I was doing lawn care! Everyone that stays at our place loves the clean home and the lakeside setting it is in as the other reviews show.
