We went to this quiet place to get some much needed rest. It is very private and peaceful. The lake is large and the view from the dock is outstanding. A lot of wild life, we saw eagles, turkeys, and deer among other things. The deck is very large and plenty of space. We found the house to be clean and comfortable. The owner was very accommodating and we are happy that we chose this place.
A beautiful property with lots of room for activities
Was a great time. The owners were very nice and treated us very well and with respect.
Lovely quiet place at the lake. Comfortable stay
Very nice house, which smells wood inside. Very quiet place - nothing disturbs your dreams. There are 4 rooms with beds, which are capable to accommodate 4 x couples in the same time. Kitchen has everything, what may be needed to cook. We enjoyed our stay and there are hopes to come back once again!
great setting, very tranquil beautiful views of the lake and the wildlife
This place sleeps 8 people we get 1 key. When you see you have AC you don't expect it to be locked at 76 degrees, the only way to manage the warmth was sitting directly under the ceiling fans. Told the owner we had a couple of issues and she brought her husband and two small children with her. When he walked in he had a chip on his shoulder, he pretty much threatened to undo the wires to the satelite so we wouldn't have any tv for the week and then threatened to put my brother in law out of there house. The place would have been great in the 70's and with different owners. The bedroom upstairs had no curtains on the windows or in the bathroom. The beds had no flat sheets and the feather pillows had feathers coming out of them. The rugs in the living room had holes in it. The kitchen had lots of cobwebs, the dishes had to be washed before using them. Just not a good experience. Made the relaxing vacation not welcoming at all. These people have no business being property owners for VRBO, all they care about is themselves. Found a list for missing/damaged items and
if a towel is missing $20.00, wash cloths $5.00 each, sheets $50.00, comforters $75.00, coasters $10.00 each, dishes $10.00 each. That's a little much I think. All of this stuff can be bought at Walmart. None of it is worth what they have down to replace it. I believe if you didn't complain about anything everything would have been fine but the minute you let them know about something not working right everything changes. Jaime did end up calling the satelite company and they came out and within 1 minutes the tv was fixed. The remote that was marked for the kitchen tv was not programmed for it so the man had it fixed quickly. Jaime lowered the AC to 74 degrees and that did help. We did get our deposit back in full, but we wondered if we would.
I would not ever rent this place again, it truly ruined our vacation.
It’s amazing how people want to remember things. They never seem to complain except for the brother n law who thought he knew everything and he was the one who unhooked tv boxes and moved equipment. He was the one who was very rude to me and was nasty to me when i came to get the trash for the trash man. They were the ones who damaged things and costed us money to fix there problems by not following the rules. My suggestion to them if there Vacations was ruined it was by them they didn’t have to stay if it was so awful. I would have been glad to have you moved out instead of fixing stuff you broke. I called direct to fix all the issues they caused. Even after direct fixed it they broke it again and had to fix it again. Even tech said they were the ones that caused it. I tried to do everything to make them happy. However some people like to complain how awful things were after the fact. Even when I came back after they checked out I found a remote broken. The house was in good shape and they never complained about that. The reason the house was so hot is it was almost 90 degrees during there stay and they had windows open doors open to house for them to go in and out of the house to the deck. As you can see in most reviews that we always try to make everyone happy and the ones who seems to leave bad reviews are the ones who tear up things. I do charge money for items that are damaged just like hotels. I feel that if my three children ( who are 6 and under)can move through this house and not damage things then adults should be able to manage it. They are right that if you want to party or tear up things were not the place for you. If you want to come and enjoy your time with family and friends and don’t tear up things you will have a good experience. I didn’t charge them anything for what they cost me to fix things they should of been happy because it wasn’t cheap but I tried to be the better person and just be nice. I guess that doesn’t mean much to them. Good luck
As far as my children being with me I am a mom I don’t just leave them some place because I have to deal with things. They are my responsibility so they go with me everywhere.
Beautiful property, large house, great lake access
This property is a great lakehouse for a larger group wanting to visit Rocky Fork Lake. The house is VERY spacious, it has all the standard amenities you would want for a lake vacation, and it's located in a great spot on the south side of Rocky Fork, roughly in the middle. Boat ramp & beach are close, the dock is substantial & spacious enough for several boats, but do be aware that you can't swim off the dock, and the water depth at the dock is probably only ~3-5' depending on which portion you're docking to.
The Owner is very nice, responsive, and communicative. The Owner personally manages the property and pays close attention to how the house starts off and the condition in which it's left by the renter.
Lovely lake front house with lots of privacy
Booked this place for a group of old college buddies and our families. overall the property was very spacious and private with dock access which was a huge plus. Property was in decent condition with maintenance items needing addressed. We had 2 one year olds there and the inside of the house made corralling them much easier so anyone with a small child will appreciate that! There isn't a ton to do around this exact location besides fishing and boating but that worked for us. Columbus and Cincinnati are both within driving distance for a day trip if you want to.
The owners are very good at communicating so I would highly recommend that you reach out with and questions/concerns/requests prior to arriving at the rental.
