Likes: The openness between kitchen and great room. Size of both kitchen and great room. Nice area for games and other family activities. Lots of pots,pans, and dinnerware. Large covered porch (should screen in for future). Being able to park car in garage out of weather. Game drawers was a nice touch. The grand kids really appreciated that. Dislikes: First impression entering stairwell was terrible due to filthy carpet. Drip stains present on almost every step. Made us wonder about the overall cleanliness of the home. Rest of home was clean enough but definitely not 'over the top' clean. The mattress in the MBR is awful. Barely able to sleep during our stay. If there is air conditioning it didn't work. Home was 80 degrees at night. Family sleeping upstairs was grateful for the fans available in the home but not enough to make sleeping easy. There is a bad burner on the kitchen stove. The electronic starter on right front clicks but burner never lights. Makes one worry that gas is escaping and could cause a 'flash' fire. Carrying off all trash is a good idea but not real convenient for someone who is looking for a hassle free vacation experience. We actually didn't swim. The small beach area is not what we were hoping for. I would NOT recommend this property to anyone based on reasons above. There are other factors but this is enough to make my point. I am quite uncomfortable sounding so negative but I am trying to give an honest assessment. We won't be back but perhaps someone future could be helped by my comments.
Great year round rental....700 feet from Crystal Lake!
