Lovely week at the lake
We were lucky enough to have near perfect weather all week; spent most of our time either in the water, on the dock, or on the screened in porch. Those three locations were perfect! The pond is lovely - peaceful and refreshing. The home itself was comfortable and cozy. Very clean and had everything we needed for the week. The family voted and we hope to be back next year!
I am so happy you enjoyed your stay at the lake! You probably had the best week of the summer as far as weather, and I am happy you were able to relax and enjoy your holiday! Hope to see you again next year!
Enjoy the rest of your summer!
The lake was very clear,warm, perfect for floating, perfect weather
I was disappointed in the property. It was not clean when we arrived, lots of evidence of rodents...that we ended up cleaning, didn’t really expect to have to clean for two hours on my vacation. Owner was apologetic but the response time to have someone else clean it would have been over 24 hours, and no compensation offered to us for taking care of some pretty disgusting things on our own. Once it was cleaned (by us) we enjoyed the lake very much However, as wonderful as the lake was we most likely will not rent this property again
I very much regret that the renters were disappointed with their stay. The issue with the rodents is one we try to control as best we can. I tried to organize a cleaning person but was not able to get her to go in right away. I did offer to come up myself but when I called again, the renters told me they had already taken care of it. I thanked them and apologized. Since then, I have asked the cleaning person to take very special care to make sure this does not happen again and, so far, there have been no other complaints.
Cozy Cottage in great location
Beautiful lake for swimming, fishing, boating and relaxing. The house was very comfortable and despite temperatures in the 90’s during the day was cool at night. Screened in porch was great and kitchen was well stocked.
Happy to hear you enjoyed your stay at Horn Pond! We try hard to make our guests feel welcome and enjoy their holiday on the lake! Hope to see you again next year!
Lovely Owners--Fun Family Stay for Columbus Day Weekend
Our family (myself, my husband, our kids ages 2, 5, and 7, my dad, and our dog) stayed at this adorable chalet Friday night through Monday afternoon, Columbus Day weekend. We had a bit of a hiccup once we arrived Friday night and found that there was no running water in the house due to an issue with the well water pump. The issue was fixed by the following morning, to our relief. Owners, Francoise and Jochen stayed calm, gracious, and generous throughout the first few hours of this issue, even as we panicked and lost our cool. They did everything to accommodate us, including offering a hotel for the night (we ended up staying and camping out in the house with bottled water), having a neighbor check in on us, then comped us a night for the rental balance. When Jochen arrived the following morning to fix the pump, he arrived with bottles of wine and a jug of water. Lovely, lovely people.
The rest of the weekend went smoothly. The house itself is cozy, with smaller main rooms than we expected, but plenty of bedrooms--two upstairs and two downstairs. Three of the bedrooms have bunk beds. The kitchen is well supplied. The downstairs common area has a nice wrap-around bar and a gas fireplace. There is a very nice screened-in second floor porch that leads to the large deck--both overlook the pond. The crowing glory of the house (we think), is the expansive back yard and very nice u-shaped dock. We spent the majority of our stay on that dock fishing and enjoying the view. Horn pond is just an amazing little pond. The water is clear--and it wasn't too cold in early October. We caught a number of fish, including a rainbow trout and several small to medium sized bass--right off the dock. We enjoyed using the fire pit in the yard. The neighborhood was VERY quiet and the pond was so peaceful.
For families traveling with mobile infants and toddlers, the house is difficult to baby proof. The staircase is open concept and there was no way to baby gate it off. It was a bit difficult wrangling our two-year-old in the downstairs room. We finagled a baby gate upstairs using our portable gate and a kitchen chair. Also, the bathroom doesn't have a bathtub--there's only a small, upright shower. I gave our two-year-old a bath in the kitchen sink (he loved it), and my other kids and I used the outdoor shower (awesome!) exclusively. My husband and dad used the indoor shower and admitted it was a little cramped .We enjoyed our stay, thank you again, Francoise and Jochen
We are very happy to hear that the weekend was enjoyed by all. We do our very best to respond quickly to any problems that may arise and wish all our guests a wonderful stay at our cottage on the lake. And, wow, how exciting to hear that you caught a rainbow trout and several bass! You had better luck than us! Hope to welcome you again in the future.
Dirty, run down
Surprise and disappointment were my first reactions when I read this review. Surprise because I have rented for many years and have never received a negative review. I called the renter immediately and listened to his complaints. I have assured him that I will address the issues he brought up. Disappointed that he didn't call or email me immediately so that I could address them right away. And disappointed that my lovely cottage did not turn out to be the right place for his vacation. I hope that future potential renters will look at the positive reviews on my property and continue to enjoy what this rental has to offer. I am always available by phone or email in case certain things come up during someone's rental period.
My husband and I rented this home for a week with our pup and had the most relaxing time on our vacation. The scenery was amazing and the amenities were perfect. We will definitely stay again, thank you Francoise!
