The home and neighborhood are really lovely. It appears the home was purchased recently and not much work has been done to it. If I had to guess, I'd say the owners are trying to recoup some costs before making improvements. The kitchen still had canned and packaged items from years past (that have been expired for quite a while!). But don't count on anything as simple as olive oils or salt and pepper.
Overall, the house is beautiful, with many wonderful features. Unfortunately, there's no guide to the home, so most of those features are left for you to figure out yourself (like the steam shower). Temperature control is also an issue (you have to figure out which thermostat is active and always put the fan on to make it work), and there are a seemingly infinite number of light switches that nearly drove us insane (partly because some of the bulbs are out).
Obviously, the lake is amazing and the views are spectacular, so if that's all you care about, you're in the right place. (There is no beach access at all since there's no beach below, just rocks.)
The layout is quite strange and definitely not somewhere you'd want to have small children or anyone with mobility issues (there are stairs you can't see in the photos that are impossible to explain but are both hard to see, even in daylight, and in awkward places).
The third floor is a total waste of space, which is unfortunate. The views up there are lovely, but unless you're having a cocktail party, there's really no point to it. There wasn't enough room for a yoga mat, and the only place to sit isn't in a place where you can see the lake (and it's a long bench, so not cozy at all). It needs some more thought (and furniture on the porch - same with the second-floor porch, which is devoid of a place to sit).
The entire second floor is a bedroom suite and the bathroom is amazing. However, there are 4 (!) rooms off the side that are entirely useless. 2 are walk-in closets (but one had stains on the carpet that made us want to close the doors and forget about it) and 2 are unfinished rooms that just seem like wasted space.
We had a hard time with Vacasa on this trip until we were finally put in touch with Maria, the local manager, who is wonderful. But it wasn't until the second-to-last day that we were told we didn't have access to a garage as the description says.
Also, you will have to bring firewood since none is provided (but a store nearby sells it). Just keep in mind that the fireplace is completely exposed and ashes fall beneath the open grate (a foot above the floor). Embers will pop out of the unit if you use the unseasoned firewood you can buy in town. There are no glass doors on the fireplace, no grate for protection, and no fireplace tools to move around wood. You don't want to have a child or animal anywhere near it. We had a log roll out and it was a scary moment.
All that said, I would go back now that I know what to expect. I just hope the owners take the time to set up a guide to the house and leave the number of the local manager so questions are answered in a more timely fashion.
Manager response:
Hi, Jessica! We are so glad you took a chance with us and appreciate your feedback. This is a brand new rental for us, so it will greatly help with improvements. We have discovered a backup battery for the thermostat that has been fixed so everything is functioning properly. Thank you!

Beautiful views and backyard. House is nice if you don’t have issues with steps. Steps up and down from main living space to kitchen and main entry to main living space. Strange layout but works fine for getaways without older folks or little ones.
