Great weekend away!
Kevin was very hospitable, very responsive to anything we needed! It was a beautiful lake -- he even showed us the hot
Property was clean, view from deck is beautiful, owner provided kayaks for our use. Owner had turned on AC and lights ahead of our arrival. Drawbacks, bathroom and shower felt dated. Advertised hairdryer and ironing board which my wife missed. Overall nice peaceful fishing cabin.
Relaxing stay on beautiful Cross Lake.
Cozy cabin with all the basics. Kevin and Margaret were wonderful! We rented their pontoon for a day too. Really enjoyed cruising the lake and doing a little fishing.
This was our second time staying here and it was just as fantastic as the first! We will be back again next year! Our favorite family vacation place!
Adequate for a Hunting/Fishing Cabin
We were staying in the Pine City area for a memorial service and mini family reunion, so thought this cabin would be a nice alternative to a motel room.
For what is was, the cabin was over-priced for an off-season lodging; it was merely adequate but not the beautiful lake cabin as was described.
When we arrived, the owner was not expecting us even though we had made and paid for our reservation through HomeAway in July for our mid-October stay. As a result of our "surprise" arrival, the cabin was not ready with beds unmade and dubious cleaning having been done. The owner's wife scrambled to take care of basic housekeeping duties while the owner tried to get the television working.
Easy things could have been done to improve this rental. There were no hangers in the bedrooms. Although all-polyester sheets would make easy washing and drying for the owners, most people would appreciate something of better quality. Portable air conditioner units could have been taken out in the fall since cold air was leaking in through the side vents. All of us tried to clean the refrigerator door handle as it was sticky but to no avail. When we went to use the coffee maker, we found moldy coffee grounds there. Even though I know that iron is a problem for toilets in the area, the toilet had stains in it beyond the orange of the iron. All in all, we did not get warm fuzzy feelings from the place. At least the heater worked.
I left this list of things that they could have done to make their cabin more acceptable to renters. The owner texted back making excuses for their lack of preparedness and apologizing.
If the owners are advertising their cabin on HomeAway they need to be in better communication with them about reservations and be prepared for their guests' stay.. .
We apologized. Booking,cancelling, and rebooking again sometimes gets away from us and sometimes results in trouble. We apologize again and home your future stays are great:)
Very nice! Loved everything about it!
The property beautiful, loved being right on the lake! Kevin was awesome about helping out and making sure we had everything we needed to make our stay even better! We are definitely coming back!
