Diane grew up on a Lake in the Adirondacks in NY, and Ray by the Missouri Lakes. We love boating and having family gatherings at the lake. Diane and Ray have 4 grown children and 1 beautiful grand baby at this time. Our home accommodates for our large family gatherings.

What makes this house unique

Started bad but ended good.

  • 1 of 5

Why the rental started bad was because a few weeks before we were to rent the house, Diane raised the price she agreed on. Therefore, we had to pay more than planned. It seemed she didn't ever have the date right on our arrival or departure. When we got there, my Sonata could not drive down the driveway because it was too steep. My daughter had the same problem with her mini van. It was hard to unload and load our cars. The house was not ready for us because we were the first to rent for this season. The pool house flooded. My daughters kept wondering if Diane was spying on us and it felt she was looking over our shoulders all week. The grill didn't work properly. With all of this said, my family did have a fun time at the house and there was plenty of room for us. I have to say that I was so nervous about if anything was going to get damaged so I took out the extra damage insurance just in case. Nothing was damaged and I did get my deposit back. We have rented many cabins and have never had this experience. Beware of all the rules renting this house.

Owner's Response: Wow, this review is mind blowing to my family. Let me start out with our 23 wonderful reviews with the 5 stars we have had with our families. I also believe this was the customers first time booking with vrbo and she had trouble understanding how the online processed worked. This reservation was BOOKED through the VRBO website. An internal glitch happened with the calculation of the pricing through the website within the VRBO calculations. I explained this to the customer. A rate of $169.00 a night calculated for customer. THE PRICE OF OUR rental was never raised as the customer expressed in her comment. I never agreed on a price as I never spoke to the customer before she booked. It showed a discount to the customer for the week for $426.00 which VRBO corrected and customer paid amount due through VRBO. The original pricing was clearly visible and anyone adding or subtracting correctly would have realized the pricing was in correct. 2) Our home is a RANCH home. No steps to the dock and two steps in to the front door. Parking right next to the front and back door to off load groceries and make it VERY easy for even a slightly disabled visitor to walk with a cane or walker to enter and exit our home. 3 cars park in front and our extra drive that is flat can park 5 more cars. Wow, the remark on the house not being ready? Customer asked for early entry and to arrive between noon and 3 p.m. Ck in is at 4:00 p.m. I accommodated her with no problem with her early arrival request and made her aware we had to still had to put our floating swim matt in the water. I explained to her that we always put our swim mat in the water the Saturday before *Memorial Day* weekend and that we would most likely be doing that if she came early 4) Major rainfall with mass flooding at the lake the evening guest arrived. We have a detached game room where some water came in. Sorry for the “act of God” for this major rain that affected many at the lake. Instead of sympathy on this happening we get criticism? Now that is hurtful. 5) “Diane” spying? We live in Kansas City and came ONE night to put swim mat in for all to enjoy for season. 6) Rules? We have basic rules that I can share with anyone. 7) Grill? We did not hear a word the week this family visited and hope people call if have an issue. I should have reported the extra cleaning that was needed after this family checked out and the nail polish that was spilled all over my bed linens that we had to be replaced after check o

We really enjoyed our stay... Couldn’t ask for a better location and plenty of space and beds to accommodate large groups. The house was well stocked to make great meals/Grill did need a lil work but got the job done. I would absolutely stay here again and would suggest this property to anyone!

Terrific Family Reunion Spot

  • 5 of 5

We had a delightful time at this home. It had all we needed and we loved it. We were confused by Bedroom 5 which says in description it has 4 twin/single, sleeps 4 because we found 2 twin beds and a full size mattress in the loft. We rearranged how we planned to sleep people and it all worked but it was just different than we expected. We loved having the wonderful dock and kayaks and row boat just steps from the house and had terrific fun on the swim mat anchored there. We were able to cook for lots of us in the ample sized kitchen and to sit and eat in the dining room. It was all delightful and we are glad we stayed there.

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying with us. Thanks for leaving all real nice when your left. Glad we could create family memories for all of you. The 5 th bedroom shows it sleeps 4. Two twin beds and a full size mattress in the loft area. Great for kids. We do max out at 16 people and stress this on our rental agreement and our website. Even though we have room for 18 in beds we are pretty strict on 16 being the max. I did for sure appreciate your honesty few days before check in with having 20 people. I am glad you were all comfortable and had enough room.
