Absolutely gorgeous views and clean with every convenience imaginable......excellent stay!

It’s a beautiful scenic home. We stayed for a few nights while meeting up with our family camping road trip here in Bayview. The two bedrooms were decent sizes and there were plenty of space in family room. The location is wonderful close enough to many places in town. There many places to eat out. A Big Grocery store was only a few miles away no need to pack so many things. All check in and check out is through Vacasa. Make sure to check in on Vacasa before you get there to receive your check in info . Some phone carriers service were not working in the area. We got a good wifi connection while we stayed. In general, it’s a great experience! We hope to come back one day.

Great accommodations especially if you have a boat! Getting parking slips and place for boat trailer was very easy with Marina help.

This was the perfect place to stay for a family trip to Silverwood. We loved being right on the water and in walking distance to great places to eat.

The setting was our favorite part! Beautiful, quiet and convenient to everything we needed. Check in/out was very easy. The home was comfortable, clean and pretty well stocked. The only problem we had was with boat trailer parking. We called Scenic Bay Marina before we arrived to make arrangements as instructed in the listing and were told that "everyone just parks on the street, they don't tow even though the signs indicate you're not supposed to park there" This wasn't helpful as parking IS an issue. If you take your boat/trailer, I highly recommend arriving when the marina office is open and going inside to talk to them. They can give you a tag and you can then park on "a street they own" and not get towed. This would have saved us a $150 towing bill. Lesson learned. We did use the boat garage at the rental and it was great, very easy to get in/out of and secure the boat. We enjoyed our time very much and will definitely return. Highly recommend this vacation rental.

Perfect location in the cutest little town! First time staying in a floating home and it didn’t disappoint!

Close to a couple pub and grills. Clinton at the gift store was very friendly. The float house is very cute, clean and well furnished. Only 12 miles from Silverwood Park.
Raelenea C. Aug 2021
Lots of storage and a nice 'teen room' with two fold out chairs and a futon! Well appointed!
Need another mirror or two for people to get ready in different rooms.
Manager response:

Cool float home and clean. Only tricky thing was checking in and finding the house. It was late when we arrived and dark so it took me a little bit to make sure I was at the right dock and then at the right home. But once we did everything was a piece of cake and really enjoyed our first time staying on a float home.

I wish there was a 4.5 star. This place has obviously been beautifully remodeled. Very well done. The layout and functionality were great for our family of four. The house was stocked with everything we needed and very clean.
I do have a few suggestions as this seems to be a new rental:
-if you’re going to advertise the boat garage, you should list how big of a boat can fit. Ours isn’t big, but we couldn’t close the garage with it inside. Also, the garage needs major cleaning. My girls and I were scared to see how many spiders made their home on our boat.
-I would recommend adding coasters. I felt bad with my coffee cup as I didn’t want to ruin any of the beautiful furniture! There are some really nice ones that would match your theme on Amazon.
-In the description it says there is a coffee maker. I would change that to say kuerig. It would help people be better prepared (we brought coffee grounds). Thankful you had some pods!
-The home does have AC, but it is in the front of the home. Thankfully we brought fans for white noise, but they were definitely needed for the bedrooms to cool down.
-lastly, although the furniture looks nice where it is, the pieces in the tv room are really uncomfortable, whereas the couch in the living room is very comfortable. Maybe switch? With a lake house and unpredictable weather, sometimes there ends up being more movie time. Really nice that it had Disney +!
We had a really hard time finding parking for both our boat trailer and our truck, but the local management company was so kind and helpful. They were willing to go the extra mile to make sure we were taken care of. I really appreciate that and would recommend this place! Please don’t take my feedback as negative. They’re just suggestions on how to make it even better. 😊
