Thanks for letting us know about your stay, and we are glad to hear you enjoyed your stay overall! The trains are a part of this small-town Northwoods charm, and though some enjoy the distant whistling, we understand your frustration. There is a queen deluxe air mattress for people to use if sleeping in the screen porch was not to someone's liking and there will be a full pull-out couch added to the living room next season.
The cabin is not a year round residence, but it is clean, has heat and air, cable TV, Free WiFi, new linens, games and cards, blankets, towels, pillows...all amenities are provided in outdoor area (row boat, paddle boat, life preservers, water toys for kids, lawn furniture, fire pit, BBQ etc). The kitchen (it is old school-no dishwasher, wash machine or garbage disposal) but has all amenities one would need on a vacation: stove, refrigerator, microwave (the homeowner includes some fun popcorn) steam cooker, griddle, all utensils needed, pots pans etc, and a new larger coffee pot per your suggestion!
The cabin and vacation area is not for everyone and we completely understand. If a guest has any questions or issues with the cabin amenities, contact information for the homeowner is readily available and they are happy to address these immediately. Besides the dated kitchen and trains, the homeowners hope that you still had a great time with the family, as this home is for relaxing and fun with family, laughing, cooking out, the Lake, bonfires, swimming and enjoying the nature and beauty of the outdoors.
The homeowners truly appreciate your feedback, as they are new to renting their summer home, and will continue to make improvements so more families can enjoy our summer cabin. De Ann and family welcome you to join them again in the future!
