Everything was fine. But, if you have allergies, beware. We had to buy an air purifier to make it through the night. We spent as little time as possible in the room.
Manager response:
Thank you for taking the time to leave a review, Erika. We're so sorry for the disappointing experience you had in our home. Thank you for letting us know there is room for improvement and we hope we have the opportunity to host you for a more comfortable stay.

Unit is basic but clean. Great location. Friendly staff.
The thing I did not like was the price I ended up paying. Vacasa publishes one price but it literally doubled with all the fees they charged. Pricing should be more upfront.
Manager response:
We apologize for any confusion regarding the price of the reservation. The cost of all our homes is reflected directly on the listing and throughout the checkout process for transparency upon booking. Additionally, we have agents available 24/7 to assist with finding the best possible vacation rental for each guest’s needs and budget. All of our fees are disclosed at the time of booking.

Gre are t location and views. Rooms need updating. Staff only on site for about 5 hrs per day. However, I would still come back and stay again.

Beautiful lakeside room, however, the carpet and bathroom were a bit smelly of urine when we arrived. The property manager quickly helped to resolve the issue the next day and it helped the stay. They were very nice. However, make sure to bring some air freshener if that may bother you!

We rented a fishing boat, but make sure you are comfortable w/handling an older back motor. It worked fine initially but then we were stuck out on the lake and had to row back. Took a bit to get a hold of the boat rental guy and he was a bit non sympathetic to what happened, basically blaming us for not operating it correctly. We understood the motor needed to be in neutral to start up but we didn't know that it sometimes would be stuck in another position even though it appeared to be in neutral visually. A helpful tip like that will help future visitors trying to enjoy sometime on the lake. The property managers again were very concerned and nice (separate from the boat rental management) w/this situation, trying to help us contact the rental guy, Jake to help us.

In the end w/were thankful to have a kid less getaway, and we didn't have many choices when we were booking a last minute trip, but we will likely choose different lodging next visit.
Manager response:
We have sent your feedback to the local staff for further review. We appreciate you letting us know there is room for improvement and will work diligently with the homeowner to make any updates and repairs. We look forward to hosting you for your next vacation!

Super convenient to local attractions. The room could definitely use a refresh- I’m not sure if smoking was allowed in here previously but definitely had an old smoke smell or just odd smell to it and could probably use new carpet or even better hardwood floors considering all the sand that could be brought in. When we first turned on the hot water in the bathroom sink and tub rusty water came out which eventually ran clear. There are instructions to take out the trash and to recycle but it’s not super clear where the trash is supposed to go and the same for recycling. It’s a little cramped for four adults, even with the sitting area. I probably would not choose to stay in this building again. Check in and out was super easy- would have been nice to have more info on the property in the room though.

You probably couldn't pick a better spot on the eagle chain being nearly dead center. Rooms were clean, parking is good even for boat trailers. Four stars, (4.5 if possible) comes from no apparent working Wifi which is published as feature. Also rooms would ideally have a stove of some type. There's just a micro wave.

Slightly dated but a great place for a family vacation

The grounds are very pretty and scenic. The room was good-sized, updated and clean. The Vacasa information provided was very helpful.

We had a great stay over the weekend. Small hotel like room with a sitting area and kitchenette. Very basic but perfect for a day in the water. Able to bring our own food and make up fresh picnics to take on the boat. Appreciated the full size fridge, clean room and linens, comfortable beds, hot water, and quick responses to any questions.

Only one suggestion would be change out carpet to either a low pile or at least no carpet by both doors. It was the only thing that seemed worn and stained.
Manager response:
Hello Pamela, Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. We have forward your suggestion regarding the carpet to the local manager to look into. We hope we have a chance to host you again in the future!

We went in March which is still winter here and hardly any other people were around, but the place was super nice. We watched the deer (up to 15 at one point) walk all around the lake and resort every morning and evening. We slept extremely well. Beds were comfortable, clean and had great pillows. It was perfect for me and my parents.
