Delightful Short Break
This location is just as shared on the listing! It’s a quaint home that is great for a small fam of 3 or a gang of 8! Love that they are pet friendly too. It’s awesome they have lake equipment available. Made our night to also find some treats to make the fireside fun even better (worth staying out in the few rain drops that rolled by too)! Definitely will consider visiting again!!!
Fantastic Summer Getaway
My family and I had the best time at this lake house. It was beautiful and stocked with so many extra things that normally you have to take yourself. The ceiling fans in the bedrooms were also a pleasant surprise and we were so comfortable for the 4 days we were there. The water is so clear and shallow enough right in front of the house that my 4 and 2 year old daughters could splash around and float on their rafts. They had a blast and cried when we had to leave because we had such a great time. We enjoyed the paddle boat during the day, playing in the water and bonfires every night. Rebecca and Ted were great about answering our questions quickly leading up to our stay as well. We would highly recommend this house to everyone and had an amazing time!
Back to our home base
We truly enjoyed our vacation on Bronson Lake. It was a lovely home and very well-stocked . Thanks for making our trip back home to Lapeer for a visit so enjoyable.
Quality, Clean, but lack of privacy
The house is very nice. It was clean and full of amenities. Owners were friendly.
Lack of privacy for sure, however. Neighbors home is literally on a hill overlooking the entire property you will be staying in. Neighbor was very friendly and even brought us food but i prefer seclusion to random encounters. Neighbor complained about being afraid of our dogs so i had to go buy yard tethers which drastically dampened the trip. I understand my dogs are intimidating at a glance so it was whatever. But every other dog in the neighborhood was wandering down to our property multiple times basically taunting our dogs with their freedom. The other dogs also loved to take their poops on the property which i had to clean because i didn't want it blamed on my dogs. One of the days of our stay they sprayed the lake with chemicals so we lost a whole day of water time. There was a public beach (Buttercup beach) only 15 minutes away thankfully. And that was out of the owners control so i cant blame them.
Overall its a good stay, i wouldn't recommend it if you are thinking you're going to be in a woodsy secluded area, because you definitely are not. Also it's dog tolerable but if you have a dog that likes to bark like my beagle i would avoid due to ppl constantly coming and going nearby and all the other dogs around. My dogs did love playing fetch into the lake.
As the owners of this property we believe this renter's expectation for privacy was unreasonable. There is one house to the left of our property and there is one house behind our property, far away, high up on a hill, with thick forest/woods in between for privacy so that the house is hidden and not in view. Our property was never advertised as being "secluded." The lake that our property is on is very beautiful so it should be expected there would be other homes on the lake. Also, this renter's dogs were quite large and were not trained to be able to stay on the large lake front yard in front of our property. His dogs kept wandering onto our neighbor's property and she complained so we asked this renter to take some type of corrective action to keep his dogs from roaming so he chose to tether them. We did not require that, we just asked that he make sure his dogs don't roam and tethering them was how he chose to solve the problem. In fairness to this renter, we have had a problem with two other dogs down the street roaming onto our property. As soon as we found out this was a problem we took corrective action by contacting animal control in Lapeer to make sure the owner keeps those dogs under control and prevents them from roaming. As to spraying chemicals in the lake, that is done one day a year in order to keep seaweed and other plant growth under control so that the lake does not get overgrown with plant life and can be fully enjoyed. It was unfortunate the spraying was done on one of the days this renter was at our property but that was not under our control. This renter did point out in his review, to use his own words, that "overall it's a good stay" so we would have hoped for a more positive review and 4 or 5 stars instead of 3.
Best time ever
The property and host exceeded all the pictures and descriptions on the vrbo website. We were there for 6 days. Enjoyed every day and looking forward to next year. Keep up the good times.
We rented the lake house for the weekend and hosted a very small wedding. It was so perfect for what we were looking for. The location is absolutley beautiful and relaxing. Our kids loved the paddle boat and kayaks. There is a small island in the middle of the lake that was fun to paddle out to. The boys loved the fishing. The house is comfy and cute. The owners provide so many comforts.
The only down side is the parking, there is only room for 2 vehicles but that was explained before hand. Some of the neighbors were super helpful about that, while others were very rude. None of which was the fault of the owners. The locals are just trying to enforce rules. FYI they will not allow any parking on the beach. If extra parking is needed, you can park at Gray Rd and walk down. Typically this would not be an issue, unless you have a small event.
We would most definitely rent this lake house again!
Charmerende downtown Lapeer ligger kun 10 minutters kørsel væk. Nyd gode lokale restauranter og bryggerier og bekvemmeligheden af større butikker til dagligvarer og boligvarer.
Bemærk venligst: Grus og snavs privat vej, der fører fra hovedvejen til vores hus ligger på en bakke. Et køretøj med firehjulstræk er nødvendigt for at komme op ad bakken om vinteren, når der er sne på vejen.
