Clean, comfortable and close to Elk - a great spot!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time at this home and we loved it again. Our family can relax after a day of skiing and it is wonderful that our dog can come. Can't wait to return next year!

Wonderful lake vacation with family

  • 5 of 5

Couldn't have had a better time. The house was comfortable enough for all 8 of us (my 7 adult children and myself) plus our pup! The lake was fabulous and the canoe, paddle boat and two kyaks got non stop use. The fishing was great, and the watet nice for swimming. The kids even had fun jumping off the dock.the one day it happened to rain. We took a hiking trip one day and really enjoyed the beautiful surroundings. Thank you for letting your home for our use

Nice and comfortable house with very strict cleaning policies

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed the house - it was very comfortable for 4 adults and 3 teens. There are enough beds to have one more family, but then bathrooms may be a problem. The beds were comfortable. The living room had very nice big windows with views of the lake. In the kitchen there were plenty of plates, utensils etc. The wifi was excellent. What could be improved: the steps to the house were not cleared of snow when we arrived. This made it a bit challenging to get to the house. The requirements for cleaning the house when we check out were extremely strict considering that they charged $130 cleaning fee. Here is some of it: "Clean bathrooms (include tubs, toilets. sink, shower and make beds. Vacuum floor and mop tile." this is on top of having to bring our own sheets and towels. So I am ok with doing this, but then why charge the cleaning fee or charge the fee and not clean, just make sure the house is in ok condition? Otherwise we really liked it.

Owner's Response: I'm so glad you enjoyed the stay! We do not require all that cleaning since adding the cleaning fee. I'm sorry it was not removed from the online contract, but I will do that. We just expect guests to leave it neat and in the condition they find it. I apologize for the misunderstanding!

Feedback from our stay this weekend

  • 3 of 5


Owner was easy to reach through the HomeAway app.

Internet speed was good.

Wood stove worked well and there was sufficient firewood.


Very powerful smell of fabric softener in the master bedroom/bath due to adjoining laundry room.

Kitchen supplies were a bit sketchy

A broken chair in the living room.

No kindling for the wood stove.


Not as charming as we'd hoped, but overall, it did the job.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback. I'm sorry to hear you had a few complaints. What specifically did you feel was needed in the kitchen? We are happy to provide more pots/pans/etc. Also, the broken chair has been fixed.

A great family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. Quiet and remote, but only a 30 minute (beautiful) drive to Elk Mountain. Perfect for a family getaway.
