The pros of staying here: The home appears to be newly renovated and everything is very clean. They provide plenty of bath and bed linens, dishes, pots and pans, a regular coffee maker, toaster, mixer and other kitchen items. The location was not conducive to us walking, however, it is a convenient drive to the lake, beach, marinas, restaurants, stores and the town of Lakeview.

The cons to staying here: We had no WiFI, there was no microwave and while I am sure the air conditioning is adequate on most weekends, we stayed the weekend when temperatures in Ohio reached the mid 90's, with a heat index it was reported to be in the low 100's, so needless to say with one window air conditioner for the entire upstairs and one window air conditioner for the entire downstairs, even with the ceiling fans running on high speed it was miserable during the highest temperatures during the day and while trying to sleep.

With all this said, we had a great time and yes, we would stay here again.

Completely disappointed!

  • 1 of 5

I booked this property for my family and friends to have a weekend at the lake for my birthday. I always plan ahead and booked and paid in full a month prior to my stay. The day that I was supposed to check into this house(on my birthday), I received a TEXT message from Mr. Prather that my house was double booked and there is nothing that they he can do about it and that I could stay a weekend in September. This was completely unacceptable! Not only was it my birthday but I had used vacation days from work, my family and friends used vacation days, and we had a dock rented for a boat. There was no grand effort to make any of this right. Because I had payed for this property and the refund wasn't back into my account until the following Monday I was completely strapped for funds to find another home to stay in for the weekend. I am lucky to have the help of my family to scrape up what they could to salvage the weekend. Needless to say the day of my birthday was a complete disappointment. I still haven't received a decent apology unless you consider one through a text message to be decent.

Owner's Response: In response to your review I would like to once again apologize for this mishap. My husband and I felt terrible. We have rented this property for a while now and have never had a incident with a double booking. It is my understanding that my husband apologized as well as searched online to send a link to another comparable property that was available for the dates you needed. He also offered a weekly stay rather than a weekend stay for the next available opening. We do apologize for the inconvenience once again and hope to never have a reoccurrence of a double booking. We are very sorry this occurred .

Summer 2015 Stay

  • 4 of 5

Owner was very nice, responsive and communicative - house was clean, beds were comfortable, lots of room to spread out. Kids had a really good time. Lots of amenities like MANY fluffly towels, soap/shampoo, paper plates, etc. The deck is very nice for relaxing. Only complaint would be that this lovely house is BY FAR the nicest house in the entire neighborhood........we came upon 2 dogs minus their owners just walking on the street to get to the lake, some of the houses nearby were vacant/dilapidated/trash strewn and the locals were not overly friendly. This location doesn't seem to be dangerous (at least on weekdays) - we never felt unsafe just unwanted I guess? Not what we are accustomed to seeing at a vacation rental. Probably would not deter me from staying again.
