Why David Dondero chose Lakeville
Very reasonably priced and well maintained chalet in a rustic setting with great views and use of the lake which is about 75 feet from the house. A favorite feature is the stone fire pit located about 10 feet from the water (great for late night campfires, storytelling, and marshmellow roasting).

Rustic lakefront chalet
Chalet is on beautiful property on lake, very rural. Nice area if you want to get away from it all. Large deck off back of house with propane grill. The house had everything we needed for a long weekend. It is an older house but well kept. You need to bring your own linens and towels.
Perfect long weekend
David was really helpful, the place was a little more updated than the listing. It was awesome! Fireplace was perfect during the month of October.
Had a great week
Was a great place to go ,,,right on the lake with a boat dock and everything we needed for the week!! Definitely would go again!!
We had a wonderful time! It was exactly what we were hoping for at a lake house!
Overall everything was wonderful.
The only issue was not being able to use the water without boiling it, but that was no ones fault, just Mother Nature from all the rain we had, that effected well in community. It was difficult cleaning up from cooking! We also knew about it before hand, so it was our choice to still do the trip. The house was pretty musty smelling too, but that also I know was from all the rain this summer!
But luckily we had perfect weather, and spent a lot of time outside. We enjoyed the lake, and was able to dock our boat right outside the house, which was awesome! Loved being on the deck, and enjoying the surroundings. We had a great time at the lake with our family!
The Best Week with friends
This was the perfect property for us right beside the lake.The house was awesome and David was great to work with in the days prior to the trip.Would definitely go again sometime
We really enjoyed the cabin and the lake..
The cabin was clean and the facilities were sufficient. I would definitely recommend it as a family vacation destination.
Thank you for the review, but it would have been appreciated if you had followed the rules. The first one is that the chalet should be left “broom clean” which includes the emptying of all trash to the outside container. More important was the disregard of our check out policy which states leaving at 10 am but at least by 11 am to allow enough time to thoroughly clean. You left at 11:15 with the cleaning person there and awaiting your departure. She had to clean for 3 hours and 15 minutes resulting in an additional charge to me of $50 (a total of $150).
In contacting HomeAway.com I was informed that I could pass the additional charge on to you by not refunding the total damage deposit. I elected not to do so as I assumed that your not following the rules was not intentional. David
