Reviewed 5 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

It could use some updates to the house, but with an older house comes uniqueness. The owner was very nice and responsive. The private beach and private lake were relaxing. Small fish in the lake, it seems, from a freeze out a few years back, but made for great relaxation on floaties in the clear water at our private beach!

Management response:

Hi Kim, Yes I need some updates which I had planned to do earlier in the Spring, but due to Susan's painful hip, and subsequent total hip replacement, I could neither leave her to go to the chalet, nor at the time, have her ride for 3 hours in the car. The good news is we went up last week...

We loved the view of the lake and enjoyed a nice fall fire down on the beach. Jerry was very accommodating with my last minute booking. Thanks!

Management response:

Thanks Becky L for the good review. You will be happy to know that if you return, you will see a brand new beach area. I recently had two truckloads of beach sand delivered and spread, plus a new fire ring for nite time beach fires! Hope you decide to return soon. Regards, Jerry M.

Family of 10, including grandma, grandpa, our grown kids and their families (ages 12 to16). The cost is good, you get alot for your money. Plenty of sleeping areas, but does mean sleeping on queen sofas and 2 people in 2 just "double beds". Was nice having all the laundry, cleaning, paper supplies there for your use. And the kitchen...

Management response:

Thank you Grandma for your review. We recently had two truckloads of beach sand delivered and spread to make the beach even nicer than it was! We look forward to your return. Regards, Jerry
