The house I'd beautiful, the view is nice except the wall by the water needs replacement to make it safe. First 30-40 feet of water is all algae.
It does not have A/C so nights are very hot on second floor.
We arrived to a kitchen with dirty appliances (coffe maker, stove top and fridge door).
There were kitchen utensils and tools put away dirty. The hood does not have any filters and is very dirty. First floor bathroom was not cleaned properly.
Second floor was clean and nice. Spiders in bedrooms are problem also.
The lake house is well equipped for culinary and outdoor adventure (we made smores and went kayaking!) and comfortably slept a family of 7 and 1 small dog! Fresh cool breeze, the beautiful view of the lake from every room and the pretty songs of a variety of birds every morning! My review must include a shout-out about the wonderful Fisher Bay Restaurant and the Hometown Diner for great breakfast! Mark and Theresa were lovely and responsive hosts, we would definitely rent with them again!
An hour in, we were planning our next visit! The layout of this home is so beautiful, combining private spaces for our introverts to sneak away, with plenty of general gathering spaces for the rest. We were fortunate to have incredible weather the entire stay, so we started mornings on the deck with coffee and conversation and ended each day gathered around the fire. The lake views are truly amazing, and the house is set back from the water and surrounded by trees, providing a nice feeling of seclusion. The dock, the kayaks, the hammock - all helped provide us with an ideal experience. Had the weather been rainy, the inside is so beautifully appointed with TV's, games, and books that we would not have been lacking for activities. Mark and Theresa were so easy to work with - responsive to questions and providing ample information about not only the house, but the surrounding area. Check out time was 1pm and,after clean up,we sat on the deck until 12:57, soaking up every minute before reluctantly driving away. Perfect.
My wife and I spent a weekend here with another couple for a mini getaway, it was just what we were looking for! Newly renovated, very clean and comfortable. We each had private bathrooms upstairs and there is another on the main floor. There are great accommodations to cook meals or barbecue without having to leaving once you get there. We roasted hot dogs over a campfire under a starry sky overlooking the bay, it was picture perfect. This was a "one tank get away" for us, not too far from home but far enough away to feel like a vacation. It is very reasonable for all that is included. I would recommend it and actually have to many friends.
This is a great place to stay whether you are a couple or family. We love waking up to the sun coming through the windows. Looking out you can see the fishermen on the lake, ducks swimming in formation and kayakers quietly rowing along. It is so peaceful to sit out on the patio with a cup of coffee and breakfast or enjoying a game of horseshoes. At night you can lounge around the outdoor fire pit embellishing family stories. The house itself has a beautiful open floor plan with a fireplace exposed to both the living and dining areas. I give this house an A1 rating for location and comfort. We will definitely return.
Accommodations are excellent. Rustic surroundings combined with up-to-date facility made this a most enjoyable stay. Beautiful sunsets to behold.
