Beatuiful Lake House

  • 5 of 5

Michael met us in Ketchum and we followed him to the cabin. Michael went over a few details with us and was very nice. The cabin was beautiful! It was spotlessly clean and decorated very nicely. So cute! We had 6 adults, 1 teenager and 2 toddlers. We had plenty of room and a couple beds to spare. The view of the lake is amazing. I loved the decks. I wish we could have enjoyed them more but it was so hot. (temps over 100) Maybe we will come back when it's a little cooler. The swim area is ok but not great. There are some limbs and grass right at the dock. And there were a lot of turtles, possibly a snake. I felt more comfortable swimming further out into the water past the other boat docks. But hey, that is lake life. And always possible anywhere on the lake. We cooked large meals each night. The kitchen is very well stocked. One more pan would have been nice but not a big deal. One thing I will mention to other visitors that have small children. If you have a baby gate you might want to bring it. The stairs going to the lower level are pretty steep. And there is a spiral stair case from the top deck. We just had to be cautious with the kiddos around them. We all definitely had a great time. I would go back and recommend to anyone. Thank you Michael and Katie Baker for allowing us to enjoy your lovely home for a few days.

Just a side note. VRBO waits 2 weeks before refunding the deposit. We just received an email stating it was being issued but have not see it yet. I think this is a VRBO policy, not anything the Bakers have control of. But seems a little long to me.

Michael and Katie.........this really made me want a lake house again. Thank you!!!!

Family fun

  • 5 of 5

This is a great property. We had two families and were very comfortable. Large deck overlooking the lake made it easy to enjoy with large group. We found the house to be very modern. The only drawback was we rented s boat and the house has no dock so we had to return boat to marina every night. However, the marina is close so not a huge inconvenience. Overall, I would stay again. Great property.

Absolutely Loved This Place!

  • 5 of 5

I highly recommend this beautiful home! The place was incredibly clean with very high quality finishes. Michael and Katie are incredible to work with, they definitely offer top notch service. There was plenty of room for all 12 of us.

The 2 layer deck offers incredible views of the lake. There are incredibly large and fancy boats on this lake! If you do want to use a boat at the dock, make sure you have an experienced driver - the adjacent docks are a bit tight and the large waves can make it difficult to park. It is a steep incline on the hill going down to the dock and the grass can be a little slippery when there's dew in the early morning.

Beautiful views, but the swim dock was a huge disappointment.

  • 3 of 5

This house is truly amazing – it’s clean, spacious, and the views from the house and the two decks are amazing. The hot tub was also wonderful with a fantastic view of the lake. However, the enjoyment of our stay was diminished by the abysmal “swim dock” attached to the property. I requested a picture of the dock on 3 separate inquiries and was told that a picture would be sent, but I did not receive one. I was very clear that we had several older women with various mobility issues and was concerned about their ability to access the dock. Let me just say, that even the youngest in our group had great difficulty getting down to the dock, and even greater difficulty getting back up to the house. Needless to say, one member of our group was unable to participate in the swimming and our lake experience, and this was heartbreaking for all of us. The dock itself is only 12 x 12, and wedged between 3 other large docks, which we were expressly forbidden to use under threat of immediate eviction and no refund of our money. Which brings up another issue of the signed contract. In my past experience with VRBO, I received a copy of the contract to review and sign after I made the first half of the deposit. I did not get this contract until we arrived at the place, and there were several things in the contract that were an unexpected and unpleasant surprise. I also think it should be disclosed on the contract that the guests are under surveillance while on the property. I totally understand the right and necessity for the surveillance, but just think it should be disclosed up front. I wanted to post a picture of the dock so that anyone else renting this property and wanting to utilize the dock will be aware of what they are getting, but could not do it here. I would not recommend this property for older people who want to swim from the dock, but would highly recommend it for those who just want to be on the lake and enjoy the fabulous views and comfortable house.

Owner's Response: Just wanted to clarify a couple of things: *Our VRBO contract is sent automatically from VRBO for review to the email provided immediately upon booking. *We went back through our correspondence and were not asked to send a picture of the dock and slope which we gladly would have done as we have sent pictures on many occasions as requested. The mowed slope is gradual and is easy for most anyone to walk down. *Only the exterior doors have cameras. These are used for security only when we are not renting our home. *Our dock is clearly not the drawing point of our home. It is inappropriate to use other peoples docks; though that has been an issue in the past and now has to be addressed. *Our swim dock gives our guests lake access and has much more room around it when the lake levels are not so unusually high.
