Lake Lodge disaster needs to be reported to the town of Buford
The dock was filthy, rotting and top section unsafe, there is a steep hill from house to dock not shown in any picture, outdoor kitchen was filthy and very disappointing, sink drained into a bucket which smell made us heave, indoor kitchen was lacking in amenities, not even a large knife to chop food. No chairs in entire house except 4 in the Kitchen/dining area and 4-fold-up card table chairs, we were a family of 10 and couldn’t all sit together for meals. Only one garbage can for entire house and top was filthy with mildew. Raccoons in outdoor garbage every night. Basic direct TV and Basic slow internet with outdated service, no one could use their devices, even cell service was sketchy, and no TV in upper level master suite was very frustrating. TV in mid master was zoomed in so can't see channels on the guide. No house instructions, no house keys, and the owner told us we didn't have to lock the doors, completely inappropriate!! No wood for fire pit, no chairs for master deck, When asked about internet and chairs the owner replied "it is a good night to catch fireflies" and "most people don't hang out on the deck" and since you can't hang out on the dock, I guess that's why she pointed us to hang out in the woods to catch fireflies!! Owners texted at last minute and said they didn't get a chance to "do" the outside, after payment was made and non-refundable, i guess that meant clean the entire outdoor kitchen and dock areas, which IS WHAT WE WANTED in the first place as they advertise a "LAKE LODGE" - but when we arrived they were out on the lake enjoying themselves and were not able to assist us with anything, including two missing futons. Also, the house is much older and worn than the pictures. The bathroom showers were glass, which is nice, but there were no curtains on the bathroom windows and many of us were uncomfortable because there were no locks on the doors either so anyone could see you or walk in on you naked! It appears that they only expected us to sleep there and to spend the rest of our week entertaining and eating out. We could have paid a lot less for a house that didn’t have a dock. We would never return and should report them to the Town of Buford for the dangerous dock and health issues!
