We love the location, the privacy and the pool. Those items are very important to us. The house continues to show its age, and so do I. With arthritic hands, that are getting worse each year, I am having difficulty with the 2 gates to the deck and the door handle to the pod. The gates have not lined up properly for the 3 years we have rented the house. You have to lift the gate up to unlatch them and they immediately drop down making it impossible to close without lifting them again. I am not sure I will be able to open them next year and with a dog and toddler grandchildren, this makes the situation not only painful but dangerous. For maybe $1,000 new gates could be properly installed. - Lorna G., Minneapolis, Minnesota

March 2018 at the Nest

We are renting again next March, so that tells you that we are very happy with our stay. There are many mechanical issues with the house, but when we balance that against the location, the wildlife all around us, the peace and privacy, who cares about the screens and windows not working! - Lorna G., Minneapolis, Minnesota

The NEst

We loved the home. It was quiet and works well for our family. the little children loved the walk around the houses.The swimming pool was a great asset!! It was well attended by San Cap Pool Service.The plantings were nice and we loved the osprey nest near the driveway.
The cleaning staff needs to clean the window wells and wipe down the moldings in the rooms.Otherwise, we were happy. Wondering if TV could be connected in the extra little house. - Jim C., Menasha, WI
