Admittedly I was a little worried at first based on some of the reviews on this location, but those washed away the moment we stepped into the cabin. Clean, comfy and contained absolutely everything a group of 4 guys on a fishing trip needed to make it a perfect weekend.
-All linens included is a bonus. Some guys brought towels but didn't end up needing to use them.
-Bathroom had shampoo and body wash available, which was a nice bonus.
-Kitchen is fully stocked. This includes a (small) coffee maker, toaster, water cooler with 5 gallons of fresh water, BBQ implements, plenty of knives/tongs/serving bowls/spoons/baking sheets you name it. We made all of our meals in the cabin and were not lacking for anything.
-We had cool weather two of the nights and can confirm the furnace works well and warms the place up quickly.
-The dock is fine. A few reviews complain about it being rickety, and perhaps it is a little older...but the fact that you can tie up a 21 foot outboard, plug your trolling motor in to the powered outlet 20 feet away (bring an extension cord) and walk up to the cabin knowing there wont be any rogue waves slamming your boat against the dock is pretty nice. We trimmed the motor up and took it slow as the water is only about 2 feet in some spots (Water was low this year), but we didn't worry about hitting the bottom since other reviews warned us to be careful around the dock. (Note: There are two docks right next to each other. The one with the powered shed is the Longe Fisheries dock)
-We didn't even consider swimming, but there admittedly aren't great swimming conditions. Shallow, weedy and soft bottomed. We were there to fish...not swim.
-3 out of 4 of us slept pretty well. One guy had a creaky bed, but the rest of us (Including one who slept on the couch) had great night sleeps.
-The BBQ is outside in a covered car-port attached to the cabin and is a great place to grill if it's raining outside. Gets nice and hot and all the burners work.
-WiFi isn't ultra-fast, but it was enough for us to watch movies on Netflix, check our email and update our fantasy football teams
-No signs of mice ANYWHERE. This is worth noting, we hate mice
In the end, we couldn't think of much wrong with the property. Shannon was quick to respond with answers to our questions and was very and accommodating. That's not always the case with VRBO properties, and her attentiveness gave us peace of mind that we were being taken care of.
