Patrick informed us before out arrival that the last renter did some damage to the building and boat. When we got there, we could not see anything out of the normal. We had a great week. Would stay again when we need a house that comfortable and spacious.
You are Grace were TERRIFIC!! I would welcome you back any time. You were great.
I hope it was a nice start to your summer.
Come back again.
Great lakeside retreat with plenty of room
First let me say that dealing with Patrick (the property manager) was a breeze. He was very responsive, very patient with all my questions, and extremely helpful with his instructions for checking in and information about the community. Considering he had to deal with the COVID19 situation, this was impressive. Thank you, Patrick!
As for the house, it was just as described (no unexpected issues) and plenty big enough for 2 adults and 9 big kids (17 and 18 yr olds). We brought our own linens, but everything else we could have needed was provided. With 7 bedrooms, I expected them to be somewhat cramped but they were not; they all had space for beds (which were decent) and furniture, and each had a good sized closet. Nobody felt cramped. The rest of the house was the same: the two 'living spaces' had plenty of room and furniture for everyone. Not once did we we feel like we were on top of each other. Nice layout inside and good views of the lake from both decks. Could probably use a larger tv for "movie nights", but that's a minor item and not why we went on this trip anyway. We didn't use the fireplaces, but they were both in good locations and seemed clean and maintained.
The kids all enjoyed taking the boat (which was provided) out on the lake. We brought some kayaks so everyone could go at once. They didn't go swimming very often because the bottom of the lake was very mucky. Also, they all showered right after getting out of the water because it smelled a bit funny. So boating is the way to go. Its not the largest or deepest lake in the area, and parts of it seem more like a pond, but it was definitely relaxing to sit by and watch the sunset.
Due to COVID19 restrictions, we were not able to use the community amenities (which we knew about beforehand), so I cannot comment on them. We did get to visit the nearby, and easy to get to, state parks (Tobyhanna and Gouldsboro) and took 2 nice hikes.
Overall, everyone had a great week. The kids felt the house was perfect for us. And I would have no problem staying there again sometime.
First, you were wonderful to work with. I really enjoyed setting things up for you.
I am so glad you had such a nice time and under some really difficult circumstances with the COVID-19 restrictions. Just proves the right group can have fun anywhere...LOL
But seriously, I loved having you. You were great guests. I would have you back in a second and hope you decide to come back this fall or winter--both of which are a lot of fun as well (fall is beautiful)
Enjoy your summer and stay healthy.
Until next time.
Another great winter vacation!
This was our fourth time staying here - 7 adults and 4 teenagers. We had a great time as usual in this comfortable large house. Has everything you need especially in the kitchen. We felt so at home there. Enough space for everyone - 7 bedrooms, 2 living areas, 2 kitchens. and 2 fireplaces. Highly recommend this house. Hope to stay again and again! Beautiful lake view.
You know I love having you each time and this time was no different. It really is a joy to have such a nice family enjoy the house and the area for all that is has to offer.
I can't wait for your next stay. Enjoy the rest of your winter.
We rented for a weekend for our friends 40th Birthday and had a great time. The location is perfect! Lots of room in the house, was perfect for 10 adults! Beautiful views!
I really enjoyed having you; you were great guests. Come back any time.
Relaxing lake front dream.
Working with Patrick was the best experience. He answered all of our questions promptly during booking process. His instructions were very clear for arrival day. The amenities listed were accurate. The best part was the fantastic lake front view and the relaxing vacation we were looking for. My family had a great time, we will definitely be back.
There was more than enough BBC space for all 12 of us.
I really enjoyed working with you in making your stay a nice one and glad to hear it was.
I hope you come back soon. I would love to have you stay again.
