Turtle Bay Review
Neat place and close to many things of interest.
The linens were supplied-which is a major Plus.
Working with Mary-the porperty manager- was very easy and she was most accomodating.
Notes to owner: Installing towel bars in the bathrooms would be a good idea (suggest 24"bars).
Also, the flooring in many areas on the ground floor has come loose from the subfloor.
We had a great time in beautifull house, well equipped and organized, owner Mary is great, planning to go there in the summer!
This was the perfect place for a family gathering.
The cabin had all the creature comforts to accommodate a multi age gathering. We found the premises clean, updated, and stocked. We were also impressed with the management responses to all our questions. Thank you Mary.
The kitchen had supplies to cook and serve. The dishwasher helped to keep ahead of meal times. Outside we used the Weber Grill and were happy to see grill tools and a bin to store charcoal & lighter. The deck was a great place to keep our fishing equipment, floating toys and coolers. The great room had comfortable seating and a large TV. The younger crowd was able to figure the Sonos sound system and how to access TV cable. The dinette was large, had flexible seating, and all child friendly.
We were pleased with the new furniture, comfortable beds and open concept. Water pressure was great, always hot water, room fans, and the air conditioning very pleasant in the humid summer air.
We were made aware that the dock area was not for swimming. The bottom was visible, had many fish for the children to watch, and a few sightings of turtles. The dock was perfect for our pontoon rental. The bay is very shallow, so access is slow. There are also many sandy areas easily found around islands that many visitors use to anchor their boats to sunbathe and swim.
We enjoyed a restaurant that served us on our pontoon as we docked in front. Miniature golf also offered docking. The restaurants were friendly and the food was good. The city of Waupaca had such a variety of shopping and restaurants for a cloudy day.
If we had any suggestion it would be to have directions on getting cable on the TV for those of us not as tech savvy. It might also be nice to include in the data that there is another home next door that could be rented separately for a larger group. It looks like the same quality log cabin and is managed by the same owner.
We would certainly recommend this facility and it’s management for any vacation plan.
Thank you for a memorable week!
Beautiful area and clean home but can’t swim here. Mary is wonderful. Very welcoming and helpful.
Close to everything. Kitchen and great room were perfect. Air conditioner needs work. We were Freezing on main level trying to cool off bedrooms upstairs. One upstairs bedroom that sleeps 6 was actually hot!! Turned on the ceiling fan but too dangerous to leave on with children in upper bunks. Fan was only a few inches above the top bunks. Dangerous set up.
Mary’s son was very helpful bringing firewood and giving us tips on the Chain.
Nice and cozy and clean place, will be back this summer.
Relaxing & beautiful!
This home has everything you need to make the perfect vacation! We brought up a wave runner & kayaks, rented a pontoon boat & SUP's & had a blast in all the chain of lakes. The house is clean, well equipped with everything you need & is located walking/kayaking distance from places to eat and rent boats. I would highly recommend staying here! We will be back!! On a side note, the lakes are definitely busier on the weekends but not too bad. (Be sure to have anyone born after 1989 get a WI Boat Drivers License if they want to operate any motorized water crafts.)
