Renters Beware.... We rented the log home and the small cottage for a family of 15. Grandparents stayed in small cottage and the rest of us stayed in the Log home. The cottage was clean but extremely run down and out dated. The carpet inside the cottage is orange sculptured from the 70's and appears not to have been cleaned in years. Furniture/ furnishings inside the small cottage are also very dated(not antique). While everything functions its very outdated and uncomfortable to enjoy spending any time. The Lodge was completely adequate for our large group of 6 adults and 6 kids (ages 10-19). The photo's don't due the place justice, literally. There is a large 1,000 sq.ft. loft that's not seen in photo's that has 2 sets bunks, futon, comfy furniture and a large tv for the kids to all hang out in. There is another seating loft over the great room/kitchen that has a comfy sofa,chairs and another large flat screen tv. Upstairs also has 2 queen bedrooms which share a bathroom that has a shower head 4 1/2 feet from the floor (same in the small cottage) so you you have to do yoga back bend to shower. Main floor has a large great room with beautiful stone fireplace, comfy seating, 2 large dining tables and a tight galley kitchen stocked with misc. kitchen utensils from the 70's & 80's. Kitchen is functional but lacking organization and quality. Laundry room has washer/dryer but renters are not allowed to use washser because of their tile field is inadequate to handle using a washer for a home you are paying a lot of money for a week/sleeps 12. There is also 2 master suites downstairs with queen beds & en suite bath. Outside is a deck with run down table and chairs, fire pit, old dirty grill,sandpit, a retaining wall in need of major renovation and an amazingly beautiful lake. With all that said we had a great time in a beautiful "Log Home" in need of some major TLC. It met our needs and the Walloon Lake made it all worth it. Be aware that your cleaning fee's could be an excessively high amount that you find out about after you vacation is over and you call to see about your security deposit refund. above and beyond.

Owner's Response: We have never had a complaint from our guests. Everyone have been most satisfied with all the amenities we provide such as 2 large screen tv's. Boss surround music system, cable , internetand new hot tub. The log was built in 2009 and newly furnished at that time. The quest cottage was up=dated in 2010 and is only used 4-5 weeks during the summer. The above mentioned quest arrived 2 hours b/4 check in and we hurried up so they could occupy the lodge and quest cottage and start their vacation..We are glad they had a good time. As for the washer , they were informed b/4 they rented it was not available.Our cleaning service and hot tub service will vouch as to the condition they left the cottage in which it took extra time and persons to clean..The kitchen in the lodge was furnished with new equipment. and is replaced as needed.There is 2 grills , one was clean , the gas grill was the last thing we clean and because of their early arrival we forgot to clean it. Sorry.
