Perfect for Family and Friends Get-Together

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed this lake house! Very authentic Indian Lake feel and culture with beautiful views and sunrises. We set up a badminton set, barbequed and used the fire pit. Nice gas grill and the house was well stocked with just about everything we could have ever needed. It had that feel where friendly guests leave useful items in case future guests might need them. The rooms, furniture, beds all very comfortable, with terrific flow of traffic in and around the house. Ceiling fans and window AC units were more than adequate as it got up to the mid to upper 80's a couple of days. Deck is large, I think we had three folding tables to serve food on, and still had room for folks to sit and eat at a couple of other tables. We had a couple of crock pots and had to get an extension cord. I think that was the only adjustment we had to make. :) Wonderful memories at a fun and wonderful lake house. We definitely recommend, and hope to have the opportunity to stay again.

The pros of staying here: The home appears to be newly renovated and everything is very clean. They provide plenty of bath and bed linens, dishes, pots and pans, a regular coffee maker, toaster, mixer and other kitchen items. The location was not conducive to us walking, however, it is a convenient drive to the lake, beach, marinas, restaurants, stores and the town of Lakeview.

The cons to staying here: We had no WiFI, there was no microwave and while I am sure the air conditioning is adequate on most weekends, we stayed the weekend when temperatures in Ohio reached the mid 90's, with a heat index it was reported to be in the low 100's, so needless to say with one window air conditioner for the entire upstairs and one window air conditioner for the entire downstairs, even with the ceiling fans running on high speed it was miserable during the highest temperatures during the day and while trying to sleep.

With all this said, we had a great time and yes, we would stay here again.

Completely disappointed!

  • 1 of 5

I booked this property for my family and friends to have a weekend at the lake for my birthday. I always plan ahead and booked and paid in full a month prior to my stay. The day that I was supposed to check into this house(on my birthday), I received a TEXT message from Mr. Prather that my house was double booked and there is nothing that they he can do about it and that I could stay a weekend in September. This was completely unacceptable! Not only was it my birthday but I had used vacation days from work, my family and friends used vacation days, and we had a dock rented for a boat. There was no grand effort to make any of this right. Because I had payed for this property and the refund wasn't back into my account until the following Monday I was completely strapped for funds to find another home to stay in for the weekend. I am lucky to have the help of my family to scrape up what they could to salvage the weekend. Needless to say the day of my birthday was a complete disappointment. I still haven't received a decent apology unless you consider one through a text message to be decent.

Owner's Response: In response to your review I would like to once again apologize for this mishap. My husband and I felt terrible. We have rented this property for a while now and have never had a incident with a double booking. It is my understanding that my husband apologized as well as searched online to send a link to another comparable property that was available for the dates you needed. He also offered a weekly stay rather than a weekend stay for the next available opening. We do apologize for the inconvenience once again and hope to never have a reoccurrence of a double booking. We are very sorry this occurred .
