Repeat renters for six years!

  • 5 of 5

We have rented this property from Tim for six years now and have reserved for a seventh! Love the location and the fact that Tim is always trying to upgrade and make changes to the property based on our concerns or comments. :0) There is enough seating outside for 16 people which is a real plus since we sometimes have our family there to share a meal. With the house being all on one level, it is perfect for my mom who is 90 years old!

Thanks Tim.....see you next year!

Owner's Response: I really enjoy seeing a family making memories. The Burn's family made the front page of our lake newspaper with a picture of them playing miniature golf at the annual Putting Around the Lake Event. Congrats! Thank you for your patronage and I look forward to seeing all of you next year.

A storm came through & knocked out the power BUT the owner got answers to us very quickly.

  • 5 of 5

I loved the house.I only wish the bathroom was bigger or a second bathroom that was handicapped friendly. My mom uses a walker & had a hard time getting in the bathroom & being that I have to help her shower it was just alittle tight squeeze & took us awhile which made others have to wait. Other then that the house was absolutely perfect & I would rent this house again for sure.

Very nice stay !

  • 4 of 5

I rented the Obrien Vacation House to take my elderly mother and disabled brother away for a long weekend. The cabin was surprisingly roomy, with several generous sitting areas. The beds were very comfortable for all of us. It was nice to have a "starter kit" of wine, bottles of water, snacks and pop. Very nice touch! The fridge was stocked with every condiment you can think of and spices in the cabinet. The kitchen was well stocked, with the exception of a large skillet. There was only a small one so we baked our bacon instead of fry. We go to Indian lake yearly, and are aware that most cottages have well water. The back deck is awesome, only a few steps from the channel and dock. Perfect if you have, or rent, a boat or float around on a tube! I fished 2 nights with no luck!. You also have a great view of the sunset over the big lake from the front covered patio. In lieu of a cleaning fee, guests need to clean and wash linens and towels and prepare for the next guest. We typically clean up before we leave a rental anyway. I will definitely be staying at Tim's place again, but I will bring my own towels and sheets to save time on the morning we leave. Thanks, Tim!
