      Nice place

      As advertised- lots of room to spread out for large families or groups. Really enjoyed our stay during family wedding. One minor note- there are no hand rails for any stair case so if you have older folks staying they may be limited to the first floor like ours were. We worked around that fine but it was odd to not have safety rails on stairs. Overall we really enjoyed the house and would rent it again.


        Mixed emotions regarding this property!

        My overall impression of this property is the pictures on line are deceiving, the cleanliness has a lot to be desired, the communication with the owner/manager, Darin Trites, was very difficult. I have never experienced such defensive responses to very legitimate concerns. The home is advertised as 5 bedrooms, 4 baths. In reality there was 3 bedrooms, with some sleep areas in a loft upstairs and a sleep area in the downstairs living room. No privacy in those areas. I saw 2 full bathrooms and 2 powder rooms (with only a sink and a toilet, no tub or shower). Obviously, we were not able to shower in the powder rooms! The walk out patio off lower level was so filthy, filled with spiders and moss, that we would not even use it. One of our guests almost fell through a loose platform section of the dock. Extremely dangerous! The owner was notified of a bathroom door that was malfunctioning, locking guests inside, but he did not address the issue in the 2 weeks we were there. Darin, the owner, did address an issue we had with a faulty barbecue, that started a large fire, by replacing it for us. We appreciated that service. Over-all, the home has potential but needs better upkeep and better cleaning. I have never seen such a filthy garage or vacumn cleaner. Pretty disgusting. The owner did agree to credit us 2 nights stay out of the 14 we booked, also credited our cleaning fee, which we also appreciated. I wouldn't book this property again. Leona Fox Newport Beach, CA

          Great family gathering on Pelican Lake!

          We have 16 people in our family, and this lake home fit our needs perfectly! Our stay was for 9 days including the 4th of July. We had a beautiful 4th capped with a great fireworks display that we watched from our sons boats. We can’t wait to get back to Pelican Lake next year!

            Snowed In, In April!

            We had a great experience at this home. Darin was great to work with throughout the planning. We booked a long wkend at this house for a coworkers retreat. We ended up getting snowed in completely. The house was PLENTY big and had so many different spaces to dink around in. We were caught off guard a little bit as the description says it sleeps 16 people but there are only enough beds for 10 and non of the couches pull out into beds. There is plenty of space for air mattresses which is what we resorted to. Other than that, the home was pretty well stocked with all the amenities we needed. Darin even came and plowed us out as we were truly stuck! Overall we had a blast! The home was great for large group gatherings and homey enough for a small, close group of friends/family. Thank you!

              Great winter retreat!

              The family spent time here to celebrate our Christmas all under one roof. Beautiful weekend, hiking with snowshoes and playing outdoors. Warm, cozy and spacious!
