“Great retreat place!” We truly enjoy the house with its view of the mountain. We like not being right at the mountain, but close enough it is easy to get to.
Even on snowy days, it is easy to get in and out so we can get to the restaurants in the area.
The number of bedrooms is great and allow for a reasonable number of guests to be present at a reasonable cost when you consider other properties in the area, especially those right at the ski area.
Given our jobs, the addition of wireless internet is great too. The hot tub is a positive attraction for us as well.
We have friends who join us there now on a regular basis and it has a very relaxing atmosphere.
“Enjoyable, relaxing but a little disappointed at the same time” My family and friends took advantage of the Memorial Day special, which was well worth it. We needed a six bedroom and rented panacea which was described as being lake front. It was hardly lake front. Having several children and a few older adults we had a hard time spending any time on the water because the walk to the water was too far from the house to spend any time down their which was very disappointing. The description in the book should not say lake front. It should say very woodsy.
“Had a great time!” The house is great. Updated, clean and fit our needs perfectly. The great room, double decks, yard and dock were great. I only wish the entrance into the water were not so rocky, it was tricky with little kids.
“Cozy home for our family holiday” Hemlock Chalet was the perfect home for our family's Easter holiday weekend. The house was nicely decorated in a lake/mountain motif. The kitchen was nicely equipped and we felt very much at home with the comfortable beds andcozy furniture. The only problem we had was smoke coming into the home when we tried to use the fireplace. Hopefully this problem has been resolved. Overall, we had a very nice stay.
“Convienient, beautiful, peaceful location and love the ducks!” Ultra quick check-in, perhaps 2-3 minutes tops, and very professional service. This is the 3rd year renting this same home - almost know it as well as our own. Home completely clean on arrival and ready to go. Layout of kitchen, dining area, and living room well done. Easy stair access to bedrooms, entertainment room and laundry. Banisters to all floors help to safely stabilize a senior's aging body.
Everything is provided in the kitchen (pots, pans, tools, utensils) for just about any kind of cooking and entertaining. There is a great ice maker in the fridge, plus the range and dishwasher are provided for other kitchen tasks. Dining area has a large table with chairs and benches for seating. All bathrooms are well laid out and well lit. Everything works well.
Best liked? This location gives a good view of the lake plus it allows one to hear ducks and other birds in the morning giving a great sense of natural surroundings. This location also has a row of gorgeous trees between the home and the lake directly visible through the windows of all 3 floors. This location also gives quick access to the Wisp, McHenry's stores and other shopping and entertainment facilities.
Least liked? Towel bars and toilet roll holders are of weak design and/or poorly mounted (loose and falling off). All need replaced and/or remounted.
“Great home, nice cove, awesome vacation!” We stayed at Creature Comforts with our family and extended family, 14 total. This home has comfortable beds (larger than what we thought we were getting) beautiful furnishing with plenty of storage space. We love how most of the bedrooms are located seperate from the main living areas of the home, great for the babies (and parents)! The kitchen is very well stocked, much more than other homes we've stayed, plenty of utensils and eating ware, and lots of extras, the owners are really thinking about the renters in this home. The expansive deck gives to beautiful views with plenty of outdoor as well as indoor seating. The fire ring down by the water made for great smore making and late night conversation. Great dock with a storage box for water toys, in a nice cove. The natural current pushes toward the dock in this area so be careful docking your boat (this wasn't a huge problem, just had to aim to to the right of the dock). The hot tub is a little older but suited us just fine, hot and bubbly! The master bath in this home houses an enormous jetted tub, which was a great thing or the kids, they loved it! I see how the driveway would be a problem in the winter, it's very steep, but we were still able to back two seadoos in and fit the rest of the cars, so summer time isn't a problem. This is a lovely home, tastefully decorated and nicely landscaped as well. We loved it here and think you will too!
“HEAVEN ON EARTH!!!” I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE THIS HOUSE!!! My boyfriend and our friends have stayed in it twice, and trying now to plan a third trip. Once you walk through the doors, you won't want to leave...EVER!
At one point, it was on the market to be sold. If I had the money, I would OWN this property. Inside and out, it's breathtaking!
