We stayed at the Fond Memories property for the Memorial Day weekend. And while Overall we enjoyed our time up north, there were a few things that were annoying. We were pretty disappointed to see that the grass had not been cut and was nearly a foot long, this was especially bothersome when we got a rain Sunday evening, it cleared quickly and we were able to build a bon fire, but the tall grass was soaked and so were we after having to walk through it to the fire pit . The house is comfy but has too much stuff, like personal stuff (clothing?) in the closets and such? There was also an issue of a couple of the dining room chairs were in very rough shape, a broken pool cue, things we were concerned we'd be blamed for? But no chance of that happening as our call and email to the property management elicited zero response. The check in instructions tell you to inspect the property and report your findings, I called and left a message and sent an email and have Still gotten No response from the management company.
My biggest complaint aside from the lawn, is that the property is advertised as a 2 bathroom, but it is Not. There is one full bathroom (dirty tub/hand held shower) and a camp like shower (only, no toilet or sink) off the garage at the top of the basement stairs. Can't say I'd never stay here again, but I'd try to find something better first...
I'd only recommend this property with caution.
Just a great Thanksgiving weekend in this house. Cooked a Thanksgiving dinner there with no problems. Lots to do in the house just reading and taking in the view of the lake. Had a campfire Sunday morning, sipping coffee and taking in the day. Did some star gazing Saturday night. Will definitely rent again but would like a small boat to use. Went to various local sites hiking, and taking pictures. Nice area.
