The only issue was the air conditioning.
Reester family gathering
The inside of the home was very clean and pleasant. The deck arrangement was very enjoyable. The home is bright and well laid out for a group.The waterfront needed to be cleaned up. Our children found broken beer bottles on the shore. There were several bottles and cans. The shoreline was littered with sticks and debris making it uncomfortable to get in the water. Many of the pans in the kitchen are worn and have lost their finish. The grill was a plus but the second time we tried to use it it was out of gas.
A few things that we wished we knew
We recently returned from a week’s stay at this home. Overall, it was fine, but there are few things you should know:
1. If you are expecting to cook,the condition of the pans/pots in this house — all teflon —are so scratched they are unsafe to use.
2. Every house has “that” drawer — the one with all the utensils in it. This one has a golf ball, melted serving spoons, and ZERO wine opener, which is odd given the number of wineries in the vicinity.
3. The deck on the lake is AWESOME. However, it was FULL of cobwebs and much of the railing was covered in bird feces. It would have been great if it were cleaned in advance.
4. While this house has 2.5 baths, be aware that the upstairs bathroom which serves three bedrooms can only be accessed by walking THROUGH a bedroom. It is a jack and jill bathroom, which is mostly fine for the two adjacent rooms, but not so much for the third bedroom. Also, the shower is quite loud, so if you are in the room adjacent to the bathroom, be prepared.
Generally, the house could use a little some love and attention. There are weeds and trees growing in the back along the deck that are taller than the shrubbery. The windows/screens are covered with cobwebs, especially in the back of the house, the fake plants are caked in dust, and so on.
air conditioning went out but property manager seemed responsive. Didn't get resolved before we left but hopefully it will for those who follow.
Long weekend stay was incredible. Great location on the lake, close to wineries. Amazing views!
Friends and I spent a long weekend here. perfect for our needs. Beautiful location, close to a lot of wineries. Would definitely stay here again!
Great Girls Weekend
Great house for annual girls wine weekend. There were 7 of us. There was more than enough space/beds for us all. Clean and spacious. The property manager was quick to address one issue and she was very pleasant. Lake views from the deck are amazing.
Just spent the weekend, enjoyed by all. Very accommodating. Folded, clean sheets were left on all beds that we made up. Numerous towels available, clean home.
