We had a wonderful time at your beautiful house on our girls get-a-way. The place was extremely clean and well kept. We found all the cooking utensils we needed in order to satisfy and serve 10 women!! The rest of the house had plenty of room for relaxing and privacy if necessary. The walking trail was a safe and pleasant addition to our weekend. We appreciate your flexibility and willingness to accommodate our large group on short notice. We will be back, you can count on it.
We hosted a company retreat for 14 of us and found this property suitable for lounging & cooking majority of our meals together. We spent most time in the spacious kitchen playing card games & mixing drinks. As hosts, my husband and I stayed in the upstairs bdrm w/ bathroom and our guests shared the other two bathrooms. We found extra TP in the linen closet, blankets and extra pillows. We had two training for 5K's who enjoyed the lake trail (right next to the residence).
Our family rented Colby Lake Place for six nights. On the weekends we had 13 people in the house and did not feel at all cramped. We had gathered from many states to attend my son's wedding. The house was exactly as described. It was clean, roomy, nicely furnished, well stocked with essential kitchen items, and in a lovely neighborhood. We found we were no more than 30 minutes from anything we wanted to go to. Our family made daily use of the paved trail around the lake that was just steps out the back door. We enjoyed lots of gatherings in the kitchen which was spacious enough for us all to be together. The deck was used to relax on - except when the mosquitos came out. The only semi-issue we had was that the downstairs was much colder than the upstairs. We managed to work it out - and found space heaters in the closets to take the chill off before bedtime. All in all it was a great place to stay and I would not hesitate to stay there again. Thank you Bill for allowing us to stay in one of your homes!
Once again, renting a home through Bill exceeded our expectations! Colby Lake Place was the perfect home for my family and my sister’s family to share over Christmas! This home is so spacious and laid out perfectly for all eight of us, that we never felt crowded or in each other's way! We particularly enjoyed the large, well-appointed kitchen and dining room with beautiful lake views! The two living rooms - one upstairs and one downstairs allowed us to come together to play goofy games or just sit around to talk and catch up with each other!! The home is in such a beautiful area! We loved looking out at the lake!! In fact, we took advantage of the trail outside the home, and walked the lake most mornings! The added bonus is that the home is close to many family and friends! Having rented another property from Bill for the past few years, we find he is super easy to work with, and very responsive to our questions or concerns! We will be booking Colby Lake Place again for Christmas 2017!
Our family stayed here for our daughter's wedding in nearby St. Paul. It was a great choice. The property was as advertised and handled the ten of us easily, with lots of room to spread out, though we spent most of our time at the house hanging out in the kitchen/dining area, which made for great conversation. The house was very clean. The gas stove didn't work when we arrived, but the owner responded quickly (the gas just hadn't been turned back on after a recent repair) and it was fixed before the day was out. The walk around the lake was one of the best parts -- the walkway is literally right out the back door, and the lake and walk are gorgeous -- we're only sorry we didn't have time for more walks. There are a number of specific rules, which made us a bit nervous at first, but if you can live with them, this is a great choice.
Very clean. A nice place to stay.
We had a great stay with multiple families and kids. Plenty of room and clean.
This home was the perfect fit for our family of 8! The kitchen/dining space was perfect, lots of room to enjoy a great meal and the kitchen was equipped with everything we needed to prepare it! The number of bedrooms and bathrooms was a plus for our large family. The location was awesome with direct access to the biking/walking trail and having access to the community pool/tennis court was a bonus. Drive time was minimal for lots of activities in the St. Paul/Minneapolis area. We would definitely recommend and stay here again if we are in the area. William was quick to respond to any of our questions or needs.
