AWESOME LOCATION AND VIEWS

July 2020

The lake is amazing. The house was great (a small problem with Ants), but everything else was perfect.

WINDHAM RENTAL

October 2020

louise m. overall it was very good. there are a few things that need repair- the sink in the masterbath on the right does not drain and there was hardly any water pressure in the kitchen sink. It would be nice to have a chair to sit on or put things on in the masterbedroom. We loved the location and the house overall but I just wanted the owner to be aware.

MISSED OPPORTUNITY

October 2020

Ivli S. The property is located on a beautiful lake, which is swimmable. Kayaks provided joy and lawn chairs made for wonderful sunrises and outdoor enjoyment. The kitchen was practical and conducive to fun gatherings around the bench table. The interior had major safety issues. Bunk beds were put so closely to the ceiling fan that serious injury is likely. Our daughter was injured on her forehead, could easily have been devastating if the fan hit her eye. Even a little thought and care would have prevented this, which is indicative of the style of the property manager. Without the fan, the temperature is unbearable in warm nights. No drawers or storage in the bedrooms other than a closet with a few hangers. Confusing dynamic with the outside trash bin, which was full when we arrived. A little care in providing clear instructions and checking of the prior guest’s trash was needed and appropriate. Be mindful that the property is not directly connected to the dock / beach area, a dirt road intersects the path. Neighbors come and go frequently in their car, so for young kids and dogs playing in the yard, vigilance is important. As owner states, no air conditioning, making for hot nights, you may want to bring your own portable A/C or fans. Cleanliness was superficial, a little care to clear the bed areas would have eliminated a lot of dust. Also, there is no public access by car directly to put rented jet skis in the water in this lake. The public access is blocked to vehicles. so things have to be carried. Private property access is possible with the right equipment but could damage the property’s beach area.

HOME ON THE LAKE

October 2020

Sandra G. I reported a problem with the upstairs bathroom and received an immediate response. The shower curtain was old and dirty. It was offered to be changed but never done. A couple of hardware were loose, including toilet paper holder and towel holder. I was informed it was known but never resolved during our stay. I was told that the company didn't want to come in while we were in the house due to Covid. The kitchen was lacking some utensils, including large bowls and pans.
Overall, I was pleased with the location and cleanliness of the home. The bed was very comfortable, dark, and quiet. My husband and I slept very well.
