Perfect Lake House rental

  • 5 of 5

We have rented many vacation places, and actually have one of our own too. This was by far the best stocked home, with many touches to make you feel welcome. There was wine, snacks, ice cream, which was perfect for a quick bite before unloading. We had 8, and never felt cramped. Owner was very responsive, and quick to answer emails. There is a beautiful lakeview, and this part of Indian Lake seems a little less population dense than other areas, We didn't feel like the houses were on top of each other like they are in other areas of the Lake. Large bedrooms, spread out layout, beautiful deck on water from back porch. Walk to a really fun bar - Cranberry's. Great entertainment, very reasonable drink prices.

Girls Weekend

  • 4 of 5

Indian Lake was centrally located for 7 of us to escape to for a girls only weekend. Home was inviting upon arrival, wine and snacks provided. Beds were comfortable and weekend was everything we wanted it to be. Had read previous review but no mold or bugs found by us. Perfect location for wanting to hang at the lake.

weekend get away

  • 3 of 5

Just returned home from weekend with our 2 late 20s girls and their guys. Loved the location and all the outdoor space. Plenty of bedroom space. Really enjoyed the campfires at night and pontoon rental on Sunday. Saturday was rainy but spent time under the outdoor carport/table area playing cards. Place would get a 5 star rating if professional cleaners came in after every guest- Would return again.

Leaving tomorrow

  • 1 of 5

We rented the house for Labor Day 2015. Family from Michigan supposed to join us tomorrow. We called them and said to not come. So bad we are eating $1k on a pontoon rental. Wish I could post pictures to convey the filth. We are normal, laid back. Mold on the pots, used my finger to write "dirty" on the lid to a sauce pan. Bugs all over, not just the lake bugs that come out this time of year. Spoke with a neighbor and she let us know most people don't come back to this house. Want to watch some tv? Not gonna happen unless it's on a local channel, direct tv dish is pointed right into a tree. Do yourself a favor and spend the extra money on something nicer. We have ever left a negative review. Even tip bad service but this time it was a bit too much.

Great Accomodations

  • 5 of 5

Had a fantastic time at the lake for my wifes birthday weekend (despite the bad cold weather) - the house was clean, perfect location for anyone wanting to hang out on the lake for a few days. The owners do a great job making you feel welcome - they even gave my wife a bottle of wine and chocolate covered strawberries upon arrival - nice touch. We have traveled a lot and stayed in countless vacation rentals over the years - owners of the O'Brien house are just great operators and good people. We intend to rent it again for week in the summer. You won't go wrong renting this house.

Clean House, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

The house was very clean and had plenty of room for our group. Great back patio, nice view of the lake (boat-slip came in handy), and the bike & yard games were an added bonus. The owner was also very accommodating. Will definately be staying again sometime next year.
