Fabulous Winter Girls Get-a-way

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a winter get-a-way for 8 of us and we found the perfect, serene location. As moms with school age kids, it was important to find a quiet location with an expanse of woods for snowshoeing and cross country skiing. We spent hours on the lake and in the woods! The open floor plan easily accommodated us and was perfect for happy hour conversation. The partitions in the lower level between the beds provided much appreciated privacy during our stay. The kitchen had everything we needed although the crock pots were the most important for our warm winter meals. The owner quickly communicated regarding our questions and seemed to truly want us to enjoy our time. We'll definitely be back.

Good times on a beautiful lake and Cabin

  • 5 of 5

We love this place. The good times and memories that can be had at a cabin like this are invaluable. The owner has always been easy to communicate with and really cares that your special time is just that. We didn't quite get the amount of fish this year that we had hoped but perhaps we were just a little to relaxed and - you need to have a line in to catch em. The towering pines on the property are spectacular.

Can't wait to go again.

Great time, can't wait to go again next year.

  • 5 of 5

Brought my family (wife, kids 10 and 8) up and we had an amazing time. I was pleased to be able to launch my boat from right there on the property, and there was MORE than enough room to park my truck and trailer. The cabin was clean and quaint, you really got the sense that the details were being handled; the freezer and refrigerator while clearly not brand new, certainly looked like they had been cleaned and sanitized. We were pleased with the cleanliness throughout the cabin, but my wife is crazy about a clean kitchen and it was really reassuring to see her happy with the whole situation.

Lake Vermillion is incredible. The waters and nature are amazing and clean. We enjoyed both quiet nights by the secluded fire pit, and also boating to the variety of bars and restaurants around the lake.

The last night we were there I fell asleep out by the fire and woke to the calming crush of the waves on the lake. It was heaven on earth and I can't wait to go back.

Renters Nightmare!

  • 1 of 5

Arrived to an uncleaned cabin. Dirty linens/laundry, unmade beds, refrigerator dirty and turned off, dirty bathrooms, etc. Place had not been cleaned after the previous group left. Not enough clean sheets to remake all of the beds. Used a set of sheets that we had packed. Owner/operator lives about 235 miles away. Landline in rental allows for local calls only and our cell phones got limited service. Was able to leave message for owner. He did respond by calling the house phone. On his initial call, he apologized and said he had a call into his cleaning staff and would get back to us. In the meantime, we had coolers full of food that needed refrigeration so I cleaned the refrigerator using dish soap that we brought. We could find very little cleaning supplies on hand. Owner called back at 5:30 p.m. and said his cleaner could be there in 90 minutes which would have been 7:00 p.m. or come first thing next day to do whatever was needed. We had been on the road for 4.5 hrs and did not want to sit around for another 4 hrs watching a cleaner do what should have been done. I told him this was unacceptable. He assured us that he would make it right. We decided to clean the cabin ourselves. Trip had to be made to pick up cleaning supplies. The basement toilet did not work. That was discovered later that night by first person who flushed the toilet. Wasn't used during our weeks stay. Basement very wet and musty smelling. People who slept downstairs woke to wet beds. It was that damp. An old dehumidifier was found and it ran constantly. This is not an inexpensive rental by any means. We expected, at the very least to be reimbursed for the first nights stay. After all, the owner assured us that he would make it right. That did not happen. He reimbursed us for one half of a nights stay and told us that since we were returning guests, that if we booked a week for 2017, he would take one half of a nights stay off. Kind of smacks of blackmail or bribery in our opinion. He was more concerned about getting another weeks rental from us than anything else. Greedy and cheap, cheap, cheap! We are rating this place a zero due to the condition we found the place in and the total lack of customer service that one would expect. The owner referred to his unclean rental as a "hiccup" to our vacation. Really?? There are many nicer rentals on this lake. We will not be back to this one. Once burned, lesson learned. We do not recommend this rental.

Owner's Response: Thank you Kathleen for your review, we understand your experience was less than expected. In consideration of the problems, it was our intention to resolve them quickly so your vacation would be memorable and comfortable. We had hoped you would continue to be a seasonal return guest for a 3rd time and beyond. We are deeply sorry that we weren’t able to make it right for you. To provide a specific response to your feedback: · As you noted we took immediate action to expedite the cleaning crew the same day. Since you preferred not to have to have the cleaning crew on-site, you would have been welcome to use the cleaning products available in the kitchen and two bathroomos rather than taking time to drive to town. We understand how frustrating that must have been. We have many service partners locally and on-call for any immediate needs that arise. Once we were made aware of the plumbing problem after you left, an expert was on-site and within three hours and fixed the problem. We would have been glad to provide that for you. · We always have a clean, spare set of sheets for each bed available and you would have been welcome to change out the sheets and leave the dirty ones in the laundry room. We do not expect our guest to do laundry and again, we’re sorry for the inconvenience. Thank you again for the feedback. We appreciate that you took the time to respond. We are always looking for ways we can improve our service and better our response to any set-backs or issues that arise.

More than I expected.

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed our stay at this beautiful and well maintained lake home, the kids liked the swimming beach, and great fishing. I will definitely go back next year and not pack all that I did, the home is very well stocked. Thank you for sharing your home.

Great Getaway for all ages

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the lake house in the fall of 2015.

The house is a modest home with basic amenities that brought our entire family back together.

We appreciated the cleanliness of the home and the stocked linens, we needed only to bring food and a few board games.
