The house was nice other than some minor issues. Upon arrival our code would not work and we had to call and get a new on. We also noticed chips on the floor that were not cleaned up and some dirty laundry but the house served its purpose. Other than those minor issues the house was nice and was close to Wisp.
Manager response:

The house was comfortable, well stocked, and very clean! Excellent location! The lock/ code didn’t work so we had to leave the door unlocked the whole weekend. We would stay here again.
Diane F. Jul 2022
Nice place, comfortable beds. lots of room to spread out. We only had 8 people in our party so we were comfortable. House is in a cul de sac with other rental homes. Not sure anyone is a full time resident in this area.
Scott R. Jan 2022
Spacious house with lots of bathrooms we had a great time also had lots of snow that the kids enjoyed playing in.
Guinevere J. Jan 2022
House was exactly as expected. If any issues came up, management was very quick to respond and helpful. Very enjoyable place to stay!

Best location for us to rent a boat and access to the lake.
Amanda P. Jul 2021
Overall this house is great. The location is awesome, right in between the state park and all the restaurants and amenities. It has plenty of space, there were 12 of us staying there and it didn’t feel cramped. It also has great outdoor space, 2 decks and a nice size yard.
On the downside, this house is very dated. The appliances are 20 years old and we didn’t have a dishwasher for half of our stay because we had to have multiple repair people come to fix it. The cleanliness is also an issue. At first glance it’s ok, but many of the bathtubs don’t drain well because there is built up gunk in the drains and the edges of the floors/carpets were dirty. This house needs a good deep clean and not just a surface clean.
Manager response:
We are pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay! Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us. We will be sure to pass your suggestions along to our local manager who will work with our homeowner to make necessary upgrades. We look forward to hosting you again!

The location to the lake was great. Ample parking for boat. Nice neighborhood. Beds were comfortable for the most part.
Mark L. Feb 2021
House was nice for the weekend, I would stay again. Heads up to those going in the winter I would take shoes for when you get out of the hot tub, it is not right outside of the patio doors & walked back on snow. The house was clean and the beds were comfortable. Did appear the house was under painting repairs but it didn’t interfere with our stay. Great option for the price!
Amira W. Feb 2021
The location of the property was fantastic. Everything you need is within 5 to 10mins away. We were a group of 8 adults and here was plenty of room to "gather" while still maintaining the distance needed. There seemed to be some sprucing up going on throughout the house, but nothing impeded our comfort. We would definitely book this property for future stays. Thank you!!💕
Andrew K. Feb 2021
Perfect house for a group setting. Everyone had plenty of space!
stephanie b. Jan 2021
The setting of the home was beautiful and everyone including the Grandchildren loved it. There are a few minor recommendations, but overall I would rate this home a 4 and would rebook again for future stays!!
Tasha G. Dec 2020
We had a great time. Place was clean and had everything we needed for an amazing price.
Samantha 2. Nov 2020
I liked how this house had 5 bedrooms with a queen or king bed in every room. Also liked how it had 4 bathrooms. We planned a trip with 4 other couples and it was pretty hard to find a place to accommodate 5 couples at a reasonable price, but this place did it. The place was pretty quiet, close to a lot of restaurants and state parks/trails and the house was clean, a little dated and worn but clean.
Meghan L. Oct 2020
I would definitely go back, but there were some problems. The sliding door in my bedroom leading to the outside did not have a lock. The hot tub, a selling point of the house, was also not working upon arrival. We had to call someone to come fix it, and when the maintenance worker showed up, he was not wearing a mask, which rubbed me the wrong way. The hot tub eventually got fixed but the water was super dirty and gross. The kitchen was also missing some essentials like salt and pepper.... what?? However there were such unnecessary items like an iced tea maker. Doesn't make sense. It was fine for me and my college friends but it was nothing spectacular.
Manager response:
We appreciate your feedback, Meghan. While we are glad you enjoyed your stay, we are so sorry to hear about the maintenance issues you endured. We confirm a door lock has been ordered and the hot tub has been repaired. We are sorry for the uncomfortable situation you experienced when our maintenance technician did not wear a mask while working on the hot tub. We will certainly follow up with our team to ensure that all of our staff wear gloves and face masks as required while working on a property. We hope we can host you again!

Perfect stay! Will book again
Ann U. Aug 2020
This place was nice for an annual girls trip! The house was clean and there were more than enough bedrooms and bathrooms for a group of 10! A short walk to the water and plenty of parking spaces.
Gregory B. Jul 2020
This was an amazing vacation. We got away from our tablets and phones and enjoyed each other. The views are amazing. The place is very clean. Overall great time. I know we will be back
Alex M. Jun 2020
Awesome place! Needs a new keypad for the front door though, we had a lot of trouble getting in.
Manager response:
Hi, Alex! We are working on getting better instructions put together for the lock. Thank you for staying with us!
Debbie P. Jan 2020
The house was very nice in a great location. The furnishings and electronics need to be updated.
Donna U. Oct 2019
This house was very clean and decorated very nice. We appreciated the king size beds in 4 of the rooms and queen in one of the rooms. Our wedding reception was next door and we could actually walk to our event. Fit our needs perfectly!
Gerald R. Jul 2019

The Gathering Place was perfect for our family get together. We had teenagers, 5 and 6 year olds and aunts, uncles and grandparents visiting! The lower level was great for older kiddos and upstairs was awesome for family dinners, catching up, games and good times. We used the hot tub, the big dining room table and the deck.....and loved every minute at the Gathering Place! Thank you for the perfect get-together-get-away!!
You found your relaxation location!
Eric W. Jul 2019
We had a good time while staying here! The house was clean and beds were very comfortable. Our kids enjoy the games and had lots of fun. Overall, it's a great place for a family trip. But be mindful to keep the little kids away from the fireplace, my 20 month-old son got 2nd degree burns on his fingers because he accidentally touched the fireplace. It would be great if there's a fence around it.
Manager response:
We are sorry to see your little one got hurt by the fireplace. It is a gas fireplace with protective glass, and we do always suggest our guests keep a close eye on their children when it is in use. Thank you!
Victor R. Mar 2019
We has a great time at the gathering. The house is spacious, and has all of the amenities you need for a large group. When we had a problem with the gas fireplace vacasa was able to get someone out to fix it within 20 minutes; great customer service!
Lorenzo M. Dec 2018
Nice place. Really enjoyed our time. Wished it snowed but we’ll be back!
Tonya H. Sep 2018
All good!!! Just needs updated technology to the TVs throughout the house. All and all... all good!!!
Mark M. Sep 2018
Our 3 families had a great time at The Gathering. The house is well laid-out and convenient to the lake. Great for adults and kids alike.
Tatiana I. Aug 2018
The house is not big, but clean and cozy. It’s a short walk away from the lake.
It was very easy to rent. We were offered early check in and late check out.
PATRICIA C. Aug 2018
House was nice but needs updates. Agree with other comments that they need room darkening one wants to wake up at 6am on your vacation!!! The sliding doors in upper floor small bedroom and living room do not work right...this is a safety hazard!!! The kitchen pots, pans, utensils etc need to be replaced...we had to buy bowls, pans, large serving utensils just to make dinner! For linens only 1 towel & wash cloth were left per person...for an entire week!!! The pool table is missing balls and the cue sticks are missing the weights and need to be replaced! The darts fall apart when you throw them. Upgrades are definitely needed especially for the price. It could also use a deep cleaning especially around baseboards, etc. The vacuum cleaner did not work at all. The house itself is nice and in a good location but it definitely needs upgrades for the price and a deep cleaning!
Manager response:
We apologize for the disappointments this guest encountered. The property manager has taken care of the maintenance issues and replaced any missing kitchen necessities. We do have a deep clean scheduled after the busy season. Thank you!
Erick S. May 2018
Location really good; house clean and everything you need...
Just needs dark curtains in the rooms,, everything else 👍
jacquelyn w. May 2018
The location of the house was great with a perfect view of deep creek and within walking distance to a dock. The problem here is that the picture used on this website has to be at least five years old; there is weather damage, the gate to the trashcans was coming off its hinges, the porch umbrella was broken in half, one sliding door was very difficult to use, another door had a screen off and a third door had a lock that would not work at all. The outdated televisions/ VCRs made it difficult to use. On top of all this the property manager showed up on check out day at 9:30am and changed the locks on us while we were still getting ready to leave. Our check out time was not until 11am. The house itself was very cozy and the beds were comfortable, the kitchen had kitchenware and the pool table worked good. It was easy to access the house and plenty of parking.
Manager response:
We’re glad the guests enjoyed the location and wonderful views. All their concerns have been resolved. Thank you.
Kimmie H. Feb 2018
My friends and me enjoyed our time there. The house was perfect and the experience top notch! We will be back next year!
