Great time, need to read better before booking next house.

The house was great, there were a few to many stairs for the people we brought due to their age. we knew it was an older house by the way it looked in the pictures. The biggest problem we had with the stay is that no one ever came out to clean the hot tub so we had drain out some water and refill it ourselves.
Thanks so much for bringing this to our attention, Hailey! It is important to us that each of our guests enjoys a clean rental throughout their stay, and your feedback helps us to ensure exceptional quality. I'm so glad to hear that you had a great stay overall. You can browse our rental directory to ensure your next home-away-from-home will be comfortable for your entire party. If ever in doubt, don't hesitate to reach out! We can't wait for your next visit. - Lainey, Railey Vacations

Nice home in great location

The home is in a great location and feels secluded although it is off of the main road. The AC wasn't working when we arrived and the maintenance person arrived within 20 minutes of calling to fix it. We didn't have a the greatest weather during our stay but we made the best of it utilizing the hot tub and fire pit. The dock was not easy to get to with our kayaks so we didn't even use it. My only recommendation is that the owners take a weekend and do some maintenance on the home. The over-stove microwave is broken and instead of fixing or replacing, they brought an extra one for the counter. Pieces of the deck are falling, a drain spout outside fell off, moss and weeds growing on the roof and in the gutters, 2 grills at home although one is junk, and the carpet downstairs needs a good cleaning. Pretty simple fixes to make the property more appealing.
Hi Ashley, we're glad that you were able to have a great time despite what seems a few mishaps. We were in the process of addressing the items you've listed and they were resolved shortly after your stay but we apologize that you may have had to experience some inconveniences in the meantime. The gutters were cleaned and because the home is pet friendly the carpet is cleaned 2-3 times a year to keep it in good shape. We placed a substitute microwave in the home during your stay while the new microwave was on order and that has since been placed in the home and the loaner removed from the countertop. We again apologize for any inconveniences you felt during your trip but please know we are continually committed to updating and maintaining our homes to provide the best guest experience possible. We hope you'll come back and see us again soon!  - Jenn, Railey Vacations

The pictures are always the deceiving aspect when viewing rental properties. Sunlit Serenity was a decent enough house however, if a lake view is on the agenda you will not find it here. The kitchen was adequate yet tight to work in. The hot water heater underperformed for the 10 people that the house claimed to be prepared for. There was adequate deck space and a well stocked firewood pile which was nice. The house is close to the road so cars can be heard at regular intervals which made for sleeping with a partially opened window undoale. The hot tub worked properly and there was a pool table in the basement. The worst aspect of this property was the ice/snow covered staircase leading to the main living level. We had four people in our party slip going down the staircase. The staircase should have been cleaned before our arrival.
