This property is not delivering what it promises although it has lots of potential. It advertises itself as upscale with its promotion and price, but it doesn't deliver upscale. Furniture is sparse and in the case of the few occasional chairs, dirty and dingy. Though the main rooms are large, they do not have enough seating for people (7 in our case with an occasional guest) and our group always had someone on the floor even though we dragged a chair from another room. The downstairs bedrooms do not have lamps and lamp tables and the beds are inferior. Not all bedrooms have window coverings. Towels are cheap, threadbare, and uninviting, more in line with Motel 6, and extras are thrown into very messy closets. Inexpensive bedding is also more in line with summer camp. In the kitchen the oven is not heating correctly and the broiler does not work at all ( we found this out because the kitchen has no toaster and we were trying to make toast). Utensils are random. There are many plates and mugs but no glasses of any kind.
The owner also needs to hire a professional cleaner. When we arrived, we found rather disgusting cloths/pads in sinks and elsewhere, the smelly disposal had not been run, and the refrigerator hadn't been wiped out. A sodden beach towel was left outside the front door.
For those of you who need internet, be forewarned: no internet.
On the positive side, the place is in a beautiful, secluded, wooded neighborhood and on a lake (we rescued and used an overturned paddle boat), very near to a wonderful neighborhood children's park with a zip line and little free library, and includes a hot tub. The location is convenient and the house large and custom-built. It has wonderful decks and screened porch. * A grill would be a nice addition. If the owner wants to charge these prices, the owner needs to spend some money to make the house appealing and more functional for guests as it has lots of potential. Although he seems very nice on the phone, the owner needs to be responsive to messages prior to rental. *Also, move the boat and give guests more room to park.
