Boat Access Property on the lake
The house is in an incredible location. It is on a point jutting out a bit into the lake and only a five minute boat ride from the town. This is very convenient. The owner is also very personable. However, you really need your own boat if you’re going to ride around on the lake. Jerry was nice enough to include a boat in the rental but it was for getting to town and back and wouldn’t be something you would cruise the lake in or pull a skier. As far as cleanliness goes, it wasn’t very clean. There were chipmunk droppings around the house. The general state of the property is not clean. To be fair, we were the first rental of the season and this might account for some of the lack of cleanliness. Jerry also mentioned that he was having someone come to take care of the chipmunks after we left. In addition, I feel the listing is misleading on VRBO. It is a three bedroom house that sleeps six. There are two small cabins that sleep another four people in each cabin for a total of twelve people. There are two bathrooms; one in the main house and one in a separate building that is nicer than an outhouse (there is running water and a shower). I’m not sure how anyone would sleep 24-40 people comfortably as suggested on the listing. You would be sleeping in a tent, going to the bathroom in the woods and there wouldn’t be any hot water for a shower. The jet skis were not in working condition and could not be rented. The rowboat is not in working condition, and the two person kayak takes on water as you paddle around. There is no cabin cruiser boat to rent either. We had a great time as two families with a total of 9 people. I think it could be a great place to rent if it was cleaned up more, the boats and jet skis were either in working condition or removed from the listing so that expectations were appropriate, and you have your own boat.
All had a wonderful time
Thank you Jerry for the wonderful week. There was something for everyone to do. From the oldest to youngest, all got along super well and were busy from dawn to dusk. Playing in the water, kayaking, canoeing, swimming, etc. Your kitchen is super stocked with every gadget anyone would need. Don't ever sell your place it is truly a prime spot on CDA Lake! Keep it family friendly...The Broussard Family, 50th Anniversary
We loved having your family, you did a fantastic job in leaving the place just as you found it. We definitely want to make this vacation rental as family friendly as possible. Congrats on your 50 year anniversary, that is truly a memorable milestone.
We thoroughly enjoyed our sixtieth anniversary family get-together at Carson Point.
This was our sixtieth wedding anniversary family get-together. Carlson Point is special and Jerry is a great host. The house and cabins are well equipped and maintained. The view is 270 degrees and spectacular. We even had a daily air show from a bald eagle. Everyone hated to leave. Ah, memories!
We enjoyed having you guys for this very special event. Sixty years is a great milestone. We also thoroughly enjoyed having Chuck, Meriam and family. They were a totally hassle free experience and would recommend any Vacation rental owner to open their homes to this lovely couple and their family. Congrats on a truly incredible milestone.
Amazing trip we won't forget
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Jerry's house and he set us up well and showed us the ropes. I highly recommend you rent the 2 boats and 2 jet ski's to go with if you have a big group.
LOCATION!! Could not be any better!
If you want to be near downtown but not in town or the resort, this is the place to be. My wife and I, along with our son's family of four, stayed comfortably in the home. When we were looking for a vacation place, we were unsure if a "boat access only" place would work, but all of us loved it. The kids absolutely loved the water and the watercraft available. The owner, Jerry, helped us city folks get used to lake living and was available for us all the time. If you want the best view on the lake, this is where you must go!
Thanks guys. Glad you enjoyed yourselves. Come back anytime. Your respect for our property was very commendable and for that we are truly grateful.
