About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 8

Do you find yourself daydreaming about a romantic getaway in a charming lakefront home? Golden Retreat is perfect for a couple but is large enough for a small family. You’ll adore the comfortable furnishings and alluring appeal of the interior. Conveniently located a mere 5 minutes from Swallow Falls State Park, you will love coming home to relax on the screened porch after a day of hiking. Summer fun will surely be had by the whole family as you spend lazy days swimming, fishing and lounging on the private dock. Sandy beach, protected by breakers is the perfect play area for young children. In the evening, gather the family and the marshmallows and spend time around the large fire pit recapping the daily escapades of the group. Located near the end of a community road, the area is wonderful for an invigorating walk. After an adventurous day on the slopes, unwind in the bubbling hot tub, located on the outside deck. Turn your daydreams into reality by calling today to book your mountain escape at Golden Retreat.

Reviewer Comments:

We felt like the pictures to the home were very outdated and the home was in bad condition. Multiple items were broken or not working. The home also was not very clean. The hot tub had a film layer on it that we noticed on the second day, after going in it the night before when we arrived. I actually got a bad infection after our stay and I am thinking that it was from the hot tub. To say the least, we were very dissatisfied with the stay.

Reviewer Comments:

We enjoyed it! Only glitches were that the wifi password was incorrect (my daughter figured out it was all lower case) and the code wouldn't work on the door on Sunday morning. Luckily we weren't locked out as one of the kids was still in the unit.

Reviewer Comments:

The location was perfect, but the house needs to be improved. We found mouse droppings between pillows stacked in a closet. A mouse ate a little of a hot dog bun. There is a water leak when the washing machine is filling. This should be addressed ASAP to avoid damage. Most of the pots and pans look bad/dirty and need to be replaced. The hot tub leaked, making it unusable one day and night. It was fixed as quickly as possible. Suggest that the kitchen be stocked with all new glasses, pots and pans,knives and measuring cups. The doors squeak and need to be greased. The couch/TV/dining set-up was perfect.

Reviewer Comments:

Our stay, overall was very nice and much appreciated. Reservation process was painless,Great job,Kudos!The cabin is very welcoming and well equipped with kitchen items, including small appliances like blender, hand mixer and coffee maker. It is very spacious, and has Wifi and cable. The heat works well. A couple of "good to know" notes: Be sure to bring toilet paper. Not sure when the cabin was cleaned/ used last, lots of cobwebs. Bring fire starters to start your fire as the fireplace grate needs replacing and there is no place to put smaller pieces of wood. Also, no real explanation for why the management company required a copy of my driver's license?? Caution: Spare bathroom tub is on a slant, and has no hand rails, definitely a fall hazard, And, on the day of check out, the door code was changed before 8 am.

Owner's Response: Hi Carinda, Thank you for the review of Golden Retreat. It is good to hear that the reservation process was smooth and that you had a good time overall. I apologize for the inconveniences you experienced. We require all leaseholders to present their driver's license for security purposes and to confirm the identity of the person who is responsible for the reservation. Best, Stacy
