Loved it a lot
This was one of the best houses on the lake for renting with the price. One block from boat ramp and had a boat pier at the camp. Loved our stay wonderful owners. Thanks
Not bad for the price. The furniture is dated. It's steep to get down to the water, hard for my blind dad to navigate. The outside of the house needs a good cleaning. All that being said, I'd stay there again for the price. Great location on the water. Nice & quite, good neighbors.
Weekend Family Fishing Get-A-Way
The property description pretty much summed up the property as it should. Good location and very quiet neighborhood. Upon arrival, the property was not as clean as we would have liked it to have been. The microwave, stove, and refrigerator needed quite a bit of attention. There were no trash cans in the restrooms. The pier is in a prime location on the Lake, however it is a task and chore to access it from the house. The grassy incline makes it difficult to transport equipment. We were here to fish, so wanted to use the pier at night. The lights on the pier did not work, so we texted Linda (who sent her associate Beth) to see what she could do. She was very nice and prompt to attempt to handle the situation. She came out to see what she could do, but wasn't able to fix the problem. She offered to allow us to use a small light here at the property, however more was needed. There is also no cleaning station at the pier. The lake house is quite spacious for the price which is always a plus. Overall, the experience was a pleasant one for the price and with some fine tuning we would return in the future. Thank you Linda and Beth for your attention to our needs...
-View is amazing (as advertised)
-AC works great & lots of ceiling fans
-1 king size bed (a rare find)
-open floor plan
-boat rental place within walking distance
-snow cone stand within walking distance
-circle drive for parking 3 cars was perfect
-LeBlanc's Cajun Kitchen within 2 miles (great food)
-cleanliness is an issue (needs a good spring/fall cleaning)
-a few dead & live bugs (I would suggest bringing wasp & ant spray)
-twin beds in LR have exposed springs (don't count on them for sleeping unless you bring a bed topper) & while it may be ok for kids - that's fine if you don't mind them staying up late with the adults (since it's in the LR)
-there is no extra bed under the twin beds as described
-coffee pot is a keurig only so bring your own pods
-not ideal for seniors as there are no stairs going down to the dock
-at first we thought there were only 2 coffee mugs for the whole place and then later found 2 more in dishwasher (which surprised me because I would have thought housekeeping would have emptied before we got there) - If you have 4 or more people in your group that drink coffee - bring your own mug and maybe even "coffee pot"
-no grill on site so you'll need to bring your own (which is a bit surprising because "lake life and grilling" is a must)
While the overall cleanliness, age of home and furnishings leave a bit to be desired, the home is priced fairly to compensate for all the negatives. I, like another reviewer, hold the opinion that it's a great value and would definitely stay here again but not if the price goes up.
Thank you for your review, yes we are very lucky to have some great locations that are so close to the house. Yes we agree the house needs a good spring cleaning, that has been difficult because we have several guest that check in the same day that some guest check out, making it hard to do a deep clean after each guest leaves. The house is on a lake and it makes it hard to keep some of the outside from coming into the house al though we do have a person that comes out and sprays the house for us, the house keeper does spray for wasp but they rebuild so quickly.
in the photos of the home it does not show that there are stairs that are going down to the pier, but there is also fishing that is a 1/2 block from the house. the dishes that were in the dishwasher were still washing when the housekeeper left and putting them in there because we had guest check out at 11 am and you checked in at 4 pm, my housekeeper thought it was best that there were clean dishes, in the dishwasher rather than the leave them dirty, she was trying to get the towels clean and all the bedding. no where in our listing do we state that we provide a grill on the property, we always advise to bring your own. The coffee pot is a Keurig, the beds that are in livingroom yes the mattress are a bit worn, simply because kids have jumped on the them and made them in the shape that they are, it is suggested that only kids sleep on those beds.
The overall stay was nice, do have recommendations for describing property for seniors. If you have joint issues with knees and hips getting down to the lake is not easy, no steps. The neighbors were generous offering me access to there steps to get to the level ground on the lake.
I read all of the reviews of the property, and after my stay the complaints seemed exaggerated. It seems some people are too high maintenance, and don’t know a great deal when they get one. There were no issues with the property. When I asked questions I had answers back quickly. There were plenty of instructions to important questions. You are getting an amazing deal right on the water that you oversee from the back porch and at an amazing price. I would definitely recommend staying at this location and look forward to doing so in the future.
Several local restaurants just a short distance away.
Naskila Gaming I just a short drive from house
