A nice large rental well suited for a decent sized group
I rented this property in late august for a family and friends getaway - we had 4 people staying for the whole 3 days, and we had two additional guests say overnight one of the days. The property is split into two levels, with a "basement" near level to the ground, and what I would consider the main living room as a second floor of sorts, which walks out to a large deck overlooking the lake with quite the view. There was plenty of space for my whole party to be comfortable and mill around when we weren't out enjoying what Mears/Silver Lake had to offer in entertainment. Check in was a breeze and was all hands off - the access is digital, so Tom sent us the credentials and we were all set for our stay. The kitchen is pretty sizable with plenty of countertop space, and while there was a large glass table inside for dining, we always opted to eat out on the deck with its table and four chairs. We also took advantage of the charcoal grill as well. As for gripes, we couldn't find a grill brush to clean off the grill after cooking as specifically requested, however our guidebook didn't say it was provided either, so it wasn't a big deal in the end. The beds were a bit stiff but doable for short trips. some pieces of furniture were a bit worn but worked well enough. I was pleasantly surprised that the water didn't taste like the well - as a city dweller, this was greatly appreciated. The weather for our stay was very pleasant, however there were 3 sizable AC units located throughout the property that appeared to do both heating and cooling if the weather were less than ideal. We also happened to cross paths with Tim casually, as he was tending to another nearby rental he manages. He was very hospitable and receptive to a small issue we didn't quite know we had to the entry door, but he straightened it out right away as well. Overall I'd stay at this property or any one of Tim's property's again if I had the need in the future. Thank you for a pleasant stay!
