The property overall is nice and relaxing. It is convenient to many attractions. The owners were helpful and understanding with any issues that arose but were not omnipresent. While the apartment itself is not a 5 star hotel it was comfortable. The main attraction is the beautiful deck and sitting lakeside watching the day go by.

Nice view overlooking the lake

  • 3 of 5

We enjoyed our family get together at Lake Fonda with the beautiful decks over looking the lake and lovely sunset with the friendly ducks. The beds were comfortable and the shower was nice and large but the faucets leaked in the shower. The kitchen was cute but needed basic supplies to cook with so we called the owners and they supplied us with some basic essentials. (We do wish the owners were more friendly though) We were looking forward to using the paddle boat except it had a crack in one of the seats so we were afraid of using it and we also noticed after a big rain storm the boat looked like it was ready to sink so we quickly bailed out the water from the paddle boat to try to salvage and save it and after all that hard work the next day it still had some water in the bottom. We always try to respect others peoples property but some things can't be helped. We took a beautiful picture of the lake at sunset with the ducks and also of the house from the lake but do not see a way to post it.

Owner's Response: Thank you for reviewing our lakefront apartment. We are glad you enjoyed your family get together. Lakefront Munro is a beautiful family friendly place to share with family and friends! You are correct, the paddle boat was ready for retirement and after maintenance efforts it has been officially retired. During stays and after stays, all cleaning and maintenance issues are addressed. We are glad you let us provide quick response to fulfill your basic essential kitchen needs. The kitchen is fully stocked with all needs, however there are times when things are misplaced and needs are unique. If we don't have something, upon request we immediately provide it. A new refrigerator has been added! Thank you again for staying at our friendly and beautiful lake front apartment!
