This was my first time using VRBO and I wasn't sure what to expect but it was easy and Rick was great to work with. Our family enjoyed our time at Loon Lodge. Everything was provided! The beach and swimming were great! Thanks for a wonderful stay and great memories made! Would definitely do it again!
Great house !
The house was great ! I could honestly live there with no issues. The garage was great as well, I pulled my truck and boat trailer in the garage when the boat was on the lift. Everything felt super safe with your vehicles locked in the garage while your out on the lake . 1st time on leech lake and it's a huge lake with some big waves when the wind blows !!! Thanks Rick
Not as advertised
We rented Rick’s place for the sole purpose of fishing and selected the property because it was advertised as having a boat lift and a dock. Unfortunately, we arrived to find that neither the dock or boat lift were in. In fact, neither were in until our last night after numerous phone calls and conversations. Not exactly what I had in mind on my vacation.
The first night, we were told to use the neighbor’s dock. On the second night, we had to beach my boat on shore. After all of this, Rick only offered to refund us $25 dollars with the rationale that $25 would have been the cost for one night of dock fees at the resort down the road. He refused to acknowledge the fact that the house was advertised as having a dock and boat lift and we only had access to both for the final night and wouldn’t have rented in the first place without them. The fact that we rented his place because he advertised a dock and boat lift was completely disregarded. To make matters worse, he said we “decided” not to use the neighbor’s boat lift on day two. The reality was that we tried to use it but my boat was too big for the lift. I have been fishing with the same group for 15 years and have never encountered anything quite like this. To say I’m disappointed with Rick’s offer of $25 to make things right is an understatement.
And here's the rest of the story....The ice officially left Leech Lake May 9th- the latest in the last 15 years. I confirmed with my dock service my lift and dock would be installed the week of May 18th and subsequently confirmed it would be installed on Thursday May 24th. I called to confirm installation on May 24th and my dock service said they didn't get to my cabin yet but would be there tomorrow May 25th.
To make sure the lift was installed properly I drove to the cabin on Friday the 25th, a 420 mile trip. At 4 pm on the 25th Brandon arrived and my dock service was nowhere to be found. I tried calling but no answer and messages were not returned. I got permission from my neighbor so Brandon could use their dock and lift Friday night. Saturday morning I continued to call my dock service to no avail. I then called 4 other dock services and only one answered. I found out the owner of my dock service had sold his company over the winter and the new owner had no experience and took on too much work. I was also told everyone is behind due to late ice and nobody had enough crews to keep up with their own customers. In other words, no luck.
Saturday night I confirmed a neighbor could help me put my dock and lift in. He also offered his lift and dock to Brandon and was willing to widen his lift to fit Brandon's boat. Brandon declined the offer.
Sunday I drove another 420 miles and put my lift and dock in with my neighbors help. At this point, Brandon had been without a dock and lift for 24 hours, at his choosing. On the drive home Brandon requested a $250 refund for the inconvenience, 30% of his rental fee. I told him I'm sorry this happened and would give him the option of a free night during a future stay ($130 value) or I would comp him for not having a lift/slip on Saturday. He chose the slip compensation. A slip rents for $25/night at the adjacent resort.
As an owner, I don't know what more I could have done in this situation. I spent 16+ hours and drove 840 miles in a 48 hour period to rectify the situation. It's important for any guest of a private home to remember we are not resorts or hotels and don't have on site staff. Things can break or go wrong. We'll do our best to get things fixed but we are limited. I've been renting my place since 2005 and have over 100 five star reviews here. I'll let you, the reader, determine if I could have done more.
Thx for reading and considering my place
The cabin was wonderful and very accommodating. Fishing was great.
Nice home- great location and lake view
We stayed here during the winter to enjoy a weekend ice fishing trip Leech Lake. There were a couple hiccups during our stay which made me rate it a 4 Star instead of 5. The first thing was, the new thermostat was not set up and ready for use when we arrived. After working with Rick we finally figured out the issue and was able to heat the home nicely. The 2nd thing was that the hot water heater was not working when we arrived. After working with Rick again, we were able to get it working so that we could enjoy a nice hot shower. Other than that the home was very nice and cozy.
We had a great time on Leech Lake. The whole family enjoyed our days on the lake ice fishing and warming up by the fire at night. You feel right at home when you walk through the door! We will definitely be back!
