Donald Q. The only challenge I encountered was with the code to unlock the front door. It took multiple attempts to get it to work, which was a bit frustrating at times.

Thomas R. The location of the cabin is ideal, being within walking distant to the lake. The cabin was extremely clean and very family friendly. There were a quite a few stairs going up to the top, so this cabin is not ideal for someone looking to stay over the age of 80, but for my young family is was perfect.

We did not have a pleasant experience with Turnkey Vacation Rentals. This review is based on the property management group- The house for the most part was accurately depicted. Turnkey’s customer service is subpar at best. Getting through their call center or getting them to reply via app was always slow. We were denied early check in the day of which was fine- we arrived 45 minutes early since we beat the traffic up. Upon arrival our door code didn’t work and when we called, they told us we couldn’t enter until our check in time even though the house was clean and nobody was there. It was 30 some degrees outside, but they didn’t care and told us there was nothing that could be done- that was not true. Fortunately, someone was working on the hot tub in the backyard and let us in. They couldn’t believe the company was making us wait outside either. The next night, the hot water went out and they had someone via text try to tell us how to fix it which made no sense. They wanted us to go out and re light a pilot light at 11pm. The instructions were confusing and we had to wait until the next day for someone to come out to fix it. These two things were annoying enough, but the fact that they were so horrible at communicating from day one was the main issue. If you plan on staying at one of their locations, to plan on having support or great customer service.
