Overall it was a good experience. The basement smelled musty, so we rarely went down there, The trash can bear box latches were broken, the door screens were broken, and some other incidental issues, but we made the best of it.

Waterside 4th of July Bliss

  • 4 of 5

Rating Details:

The property manager was more than helpful.

The vacation rental was clean.

Overall, I recommend this vacation rental.

Reviewer Comments:

The house was in a great secluded area and has quite a bit of charm. It does need a little bit of work. The window seals are broke which would give spectacular views, there were tons of cobb webs, the bathrooms needed some TLC such as the caulking in the tubs and the ceiling tiles. I liked the large Kutcher and it felt homey! The lawn maintenance came pretty early one day and that was a little distracting.

Overall a great family stay

  • 4 of 5

My family of 5 (kids ages 10,7, and 3) stayed here for a week. Upon arrival, there were a couple hiccups; wifi not working and hot tub not heating, but we called the number provided and someone was there to help us within minutes. As other reviews have stated, the property could use some updates and some deep cleaning on the windows but overall I thought it was clean int he areas that mattered the most and sturdy enough to not have to worry about my kids damaging anything. The hike to the dock is lengthy, but expected as we read the property description. Because of the secluded location, we were able to see a black bear and a family of deer. Rented a boat for a day and was able to dock at our own private dock to be able to come in for bathroom breaks and lunch. Other days, we just spent them swimming and laying on the dock or doing activities in the area like horse back riding and Smiley's. I recommend this property to families with younger children like us.

Reviewer Comments:

TAYLOR MADE should be embarrassed and ashamed of renting a cabin in this condition! Just a few things I should mention. Trash compactor smelled like a dead animal inside. Glass all over the rug and cut my foot. Cob webs throughout the cabin. ALL surfaces and windows were filthy. Gas stove only had 2 burners that worked. Linens stained. Floors stained. All 3 decks were filthy. Grill was absolutely filthy!!! Had to buy light bulbs and batteries for the remote. Coffee maker and toaster needs replaced. Hot tub cold. You had to pull up doors to close them. Etc., etc. Should of demanded money back, but being in the Military for 16 years, I made good of what we had. Can't see me using Taylor Made anymore. Stayed at other cabins from Taylor Made that was beautiful, but Taylor Made dropped the ball on this one & made over 1200 bucks from me.

Waterside Bliss - Great location!

  • 4 of 5

I give Waterside Bliss 3.5 stars. Unfortunately, not the house's fault, but Wisp decided to end the season the weekend before our arrival and it was still blistering cold that weekend to do anything in regards to the Lake.

Cons: Upon arrival house was very cold/set to 55-60degs. Small propane heaters in house were out of order. Hot tub in odd location (driveway) -- just my personal opinion move to top deck--would have spectacular views of the lake. Lacks privacy -- Bedrooms are arranged very close to each other without any insulation or barrier other than floorboards and wall paneling. We were having conversations (not yelling) between the upstairs/downstairs bedrooms (quite hysterical, actually).

Pros: Hot tub. Overall location/view of lake. Beautiful picture windows on 2nd story overlooking lake. Perfectly acceptable weekend getaway house for relaxation. Rental agency made check in/out a breeze.

Reviewer Comments:

Had great potential but overall not very satisfied with our stay. A party must have been staying there before us. A couple things we encountered: Spent fireworks all over property. Deck hadn't been swept of an abundance of leaves(wet and very slippery, we swept them to avoid someone falling). Multiple beer bottles outside/on hillside of property. Both propane heaters in house were out of order. Upstairs bed sheets had stains on them. Wooden steps to lake have not been treated or cared for in years, borderline hazard without railing at bottom. Hot tub was disgusting. Cigarette butts floating in water and after 10 minutes of being in we couldn't take the water smell or feel...doesn't seem to have been maintained at all. Hot tub also struggled to get over 99 degrees. Cobwebs and dust everywhere! Would be beautiful picture windows on 2nd story overlooking lake have not been cleaned in years. Stained off white/cloudy. Do not expect any privacy in the house. Bedrooms are arranged extremely close to each other without any insulation or barrier other than floorboards and wall paneling. We were having conversations in the morning with each other on separate floors with normal inside voices. Furniture hasn't been replaced in some time. Beds and mattresses are pretty uncomfortable. Only seating for 4 in great room, if you want more than that you're sitting on bar stools or dining chairs. For the amount of money I spent I arrived extremely disappointed. We still had a blast but the hot tub and overall cleanliness were major downsides.
