First thing first, we arrived half and hour after check-in time but we ended up waiting for another hour for cleaning lady to finish her job. We had our dogs with us and it was almost hundred degree outside so we had to keep the car running and kept them in the car. After 3 hours drive, waiting for another hour wasn't an option so we weren't a happy camper at all. Second, we were planning to grill our dinner but the gas grill was leaking so I had to cook our steak in the oven which was fine. Third, we also discovered swasp nest at the deck which made our relaxing time outside not so relaxing. Lastly, I wish I knew whether the suggested lake access allow dogs or not because we took them too the lake and it looked more like private dock so we didn't get to swim at all. However, I would have to say that the house is very cozy lovely and overall we did have a great time together.
The accommodations itself were about what we expected; however, I would say the owner/property manager did not set the property up very well in advance of our visit. The confirmation email had details to turn the breaker on for the hot water heater, but even after doing so the hot water never worked. When we arrived the fridge was also turned off so we had to wait for it to get cold before we could unpack our food for the weekend. These are things that should be done before the guest shows up in my opinion. On top of the water heater being off all the water shutoffs were turned off and that was not stated as something we would have to do. Additionally, the Wi-Fi never worked. The router/modem wasn't even plugged in when we arrived and after hooking it up the router never transmitted data even though we were able to connect.
We did not try to contact the local contact for help as luckily for our group we weren't spending much time at the property. We had friends nearby that we spent most of our time with. If you're just looking for a place to crash that's reasonably priced this is a great option, but if you're needing the property to be more livable I'd look elsewhere.
Such a cute spot, lots of woods to relax in. The back patio was our favorite. They had tiki torches, a grill, and a fire pit overlooking beautiful trees and wildlife. We were kind of disappointed about the minimal lake access though. Its quite a walk and theres not really a deck to relax and lay out on. The strip is just ten minutes away so that was convenient. We were overall happy with our stay and our dog liked it too.
