Pictures and listing very deceiving - pay attention to REVIEWS
This listing was chosen based on the photos... had I read the reviews, I would have NEVER booked this property. It is clear that the owners DO NOT take pride in their home as we have become accustomed to through the years. Our group of seven ladies have been sharing a fall get away for some time. This is the first time we’ve been so disappointed in the house that was chosen. Upon entering the house, the first thing we noticed was the counters were sticky and had crumbs all over! NOT a good first impression… Our criteria for a "fall" get away is simple, a house on a lake with a fireplace. The listing stated "wood" fireplace. Since there where no welcome instructions on how to use anything in the house, the TV included, we had to call the agent to send someone over to show us how to use the fireplace to only find out it was an electric fireplace and the wires had been cut. So NO fireplace! The agent wasn’t only called for the fireplace, but for the following reasons; the dirty kitchen, the bathroom shower was moldy and needed to be cleaned, (also there is only one bathroom shared by four bedrooms, no master bath as stated in pictures). There was stains on the pillows, cobwebs in bedrooms and upstairs hall, missing or blown lights through out the house, no curtains or shades on bedroom windows, master king mattress has springs popping through, shower door not working properly, TV doesn’t have any cable channels, only one kayak not cared for, found outside covered in leaves and pine needles, BBQ grill left with burnt food and no toilet paper in any of the bathrooms. Sofa and chairs had to be covered with sheets since they were extremely dirty to sit on. After we got stuck waiting for the agent to send someone over, we went to Walmart to buy toilet paper, sheets and pillowcases to cover beds and pillows… thank goodness most of us brought our own blankets. Aside from being very dirty, this house is also completely UNSAFE! The doors on the upper deck do not lock, the bricks on the lower level have large holes, that you could trip, but the worst thing is the stairs on the upstairs landing! I almost took a backwards fall down these steps. The house is old and I am 100% sure, that these stairs would not pass a building code today and really shouldn’t be rented until that is addressed. Definitely not safe for children! Also, a health hazard as to the mold in the lower level of the house which caused a few of the ladies to be sick. READ REVIEWS
Golf weekend at the lake
Great location on the lake, and very close to the restaurants/bars at the end of the lake. Property was pretty clean, but it's an older property. Everything worked, but there are no premium extras. If you're looking for a house on the lake, with 4 bedrooms this is a perfect spot. Stayed in the fall...the heat worked great, I can't comment on the AC for the summer.
Great view on the lake, needs some work
Nice place for the most part. Game room in basement is a waste but the main floor and the bedrooms are fine. Just a bit dated and needs to be a little cleaner. It’s in the details.
Great location, house needs TLC
The location of the house is perfect. Right on the lake with a beautiful view. Kitchen was clean and had all the necessities. Downstairs basement area really not useable, smelled of cleaning products. Master bedroom had numerous spiders and cobwebs. This I guess can be blamed on cleaning service. We could not find a vacuum in the house which we could have used to clean the house up a bit. Screened in porch was also not clean, had no screen on door and grill was so dirty we couldn't even use it.
Down time with the family
Location great - rental agent great -property needs some TLC - priced fine for the property - neighbors paying double - understand the $$ value for location on the lake that allows pets
Can't beat being on the lake.
Great house for couples weekend or families.
