Fantastic Labor Day getaway!
I can't say enough good things about our experience at this property. Myself and four others came up for three nights over Labor Day weekend from NYC. We booked the week before, so kind of last minute but Alex was incredibly helpful. Upon booking Alex emailed over a PDF detailing everything one would need or want to know on the house and its various amenities, including clear instructions for how to operate the hot tub, where to find and return the boats and paddles, mountain bikes, etc and also on amenities of the surrounding area. Upon arrival the key is left in a locked box on the door, which you call ahead and receive the code to from Alex- the entire process was incredibly easy (I've stayed at other rentals and it can be a hassle coordinating an exact arrival/departure time to exchange keys) and he was flexible in letting us stay an extra two hours on Monday. The house itself was everything we were looking for- we loved the rustic vibe (it reminds me of my family's camp in Northern Maine, built in the 1970's) and definitely made use of the bikes, boats, hot tub, fireplace and outdoor grill. We also loved how private and secluded the house was- there were maybe 20 houses max on the lake. While out on the lake we were usually the only ones out there! While there was no wifi at the house, we all had perfect cell reception. We definitely plan on staying again!
