4/10 Fair

The picture of the lake on the front page of the property listing is deceiving. The property needs lots of improvements. The stairs to my room under the eves were very narrow. I had difficulty hauling my carry-on to the room. The furniture was old. The linen and the towels were white at some point. They were more grayish.

This property is in poor repair, not clean, and not well marked. There are many things about it that are unsafe Owner was friendly when we arrived, and made a recommendation for dinner that turned out to be a great experience.

It was a lovely stay! The host, Chris, was a really kind and frendly guy and the breakfast he made for us was amazing. Unfortunately it was rainy when we visited the place, but the (frozen) lake view was beautiful. The room itself was also well decorated with Peruvian stuff. I wish I can come back here in summer :)

The property manager was nice, he speaks various languages. When we arrived, he wasn't there and the house was picked so we had to wait until 7pm. Other than that, it is a beautiful and welcoming place!
