Nice house on the lake.
House was clean and owner was easy to get in touch with.
Little get away
Needed a home for about 10 days it surved the purpose. Do bring your own bedding.
I’m sure the place for the summer is amazing needs a bit more cleaning but overall a nice little getaway . If pricing is in order will look at coming back in the summer.
Cozy, clean with a beautiful view
The house was very clean and had a great view. It was nice to wake up in the morning and go to the lake and do some fishing. Great spot for kids and adults alike.
This property is not maintained! The home is only moderately clean
The beds are horrible. The couches broken appliances on their last leg no sheets towels. Ridiculous for travelers. The owners need to take care of the property or correctly advertise and price it.
Tom, we are sorry to hear that you were disappointed with your recent stay at this lake house. A professional cleaning service prepares the property for each guest, and we let travelers know before they book that they must provide their own linens and towels. This is the industry standard for vacation rentals in the area, but we apologize for any inconvenience. We appreciate your feedback and have shared it with the homeowner for their further consideration. Thank you for your review, and we hope to have the opportunity to host you again soon! Best, the Evolve Team
It was very spacious which worked well for extended family . Nice beach front & lawn for activities
Nice location and good beach front and yard for activities . Enjoyed the outdoor fire pit.
Very spacious first floor for family to gather and easy access to the nice wrap around deck. Bedrooms on each floor allowed privacy for family members .
There were a good number of chairs and floats available to use.
Some aspects of the house are slightly outdated. The light switches were alittle concerning. The couches should be updated since they were both broken. More fans would help to keep the house cooler. It would be nice to be able to use the washer and dryer especially if you were staying for a week or longer.
Also having a canoe or kayaks to use would be nice instead of having to transport ours down.
We did catch a mouse running around . Garbage cans were half full when we arrived and pretty smelly .
Overall a nice vacation home and would rent again .
Not as expected
The photos of the home were not a true representation. The dock and the planked path toward the lake were nonexistent. That's fine, not a big deal. The home was less modern and more dirtier than I had expected. My room smelled musty and stale, as well as the couches. Under my bed was an empty tampad wrapper. I found this pretty disturbing. The backyard had a lot of geese poop, which is fine because what can you do. The lake water grossed me out. The ground was super mushy and I saw a dead rat floating in the lake. If you're going to do a lot of cooking, bring some cookware because the knives are dull and there aren't many pots or pans to accomodate big meals. I was expecting a cozy updated home, but this didn't meet my expectations. Others seem to enjoy it, but this was my experience.
Jennifer, we're sorry your stay wasn't what you expected. Cleanliness is of the utmost importance and the homeowner will address the issues you mentioned as well as the cookware as soon as possible. Thank you for bringing this to our attention so we can enhance the stay for future guests! Best, the Evolve Team
