Nice Place and Very Affordable

  • 4 of 5
I stayed for a three day weekend at this rental and it was great. We had a group of people for an ice fishing trip and the place was the right size and the hostess was very nice and professional.
We had only one small problem of a water leak in the shower, so we could not use it, but she gave us one free night as compensation.
Down the hill from this rental is the lake and it's not far at all with a public access point, perfect for getting your snowmobile onto the hard water.

Owner's Response: There was a leak in the shower which we couldn't have been aware of until renters were in . The pipes froze a few weeks before this, we thought we had found all the damaged pipes. Renters became aware of it when they went to take a shower, they could hear running water. Thank goodness for them, they called us right away. We didn't want to ruin thier 2 day ice fishing trip by intruding on them to fix it, asked if they could just leave the shower off and we could fix it when they left. They were more than agreeable, so we gave them one night free. They were very nice. It was all fixed as soon as they left.
