The owner, Karin was very responsive to our inquiries, as was Daniel the facility manager.
The house was well equipped, with great AC and Wi-Fi. We also very much appreciated having an available washer and dryer, which avoided us having to bring lots of clothes. The beds and linens were quite comfortable. It would have been more convenient to have the TV on the main level, as opposed to the basement where the pool table was situated. We had expected to have a full bag of the firewood to be available when we got there, but that was not the case...probably a good idea to bring your own wood as it is not so readily available. We also had an ant issue in the kitchen, for which we were told to purchase ant traps on our own. We were surprised at this response, considering the price we paid for the week.
While the house was quite nice, it did not have an area to throw a football, baseball, or even set up a volleyball net...this limited our outdoor activities.
We also had the terrible luck of having wild neighbours who decided it would be fun to set off fireworks in the MIDDLE of the night, play very loud music past 3:00am and run thru the woods screaming.
We made a mistake of booking a week at this location. We were under the impression we had a lake to be at, with a private dock, but it turned out that it is shared with others and when everyone brings their kayaks, it’s a disaster. The “lake” or “waterfront” property is more of a swampy pond than anything. Getting to your water access carrying the kayaks is difficult, as you need to trek through deep mud and several 2x4 wooden boards to get there. Some of our members fell, twisted ankles, lost footing, or lost their footwear in the muddy path. The picture of the dock that is NOT the dock we are allowed to use. It belongs to another owner and is private property. We were warned to not be on it and were actually escorted off of it. This picture needs to be replaced.
As for the water, you cannot swim or fish. You can’t even get into the water from the dock because it’s full of weeds, and plant life. It was not what we expected and were all quite disappointed that we would not be able to swim.
Bottom line, if you are expecting a lakeside cottage, this is not what it is. If you are looking for a peaceful deck to sit and read a book, this is for you.
