When I booked the house I was assured it had a lake view. My husband and I were looking forward to three days of relaxing on the deck watching the boats go by. When I checked in I asked again if the house had a lake view and was told there was. There was not! It was more of a ditch view. A nice staff person showed us other houses but both of the ones we looked at were worse than the one we were in. Like their lake views, they also claim to have wireless internet, which did not work (ever) during our three-day stay. So without a view we decided to watch some Netflix movies we brought but we were disappointed again when the television set, better served as a boat anchor, showed everything in fuzzy pastel colors. Come on--buy a $200 set at Walmart or stop renting your place. So, while you are not watching boats or TV, or surfing the net, don't plan on a nap either. The bedroom window is huge, does not face the ditch, and has super thin mini blinds so it is super bright in there pretty much dawn to dusk. Still, for the price, it wasn't a rip off, but was certainly not the weekend we had planned. We do recommend the restaurant in town called Patti's--the pork chops are really, really great!
