Shayla, thank you for your feedback. Glad you were able to enjoy. Glad we were able to accommodate your request for 3 hour early check in. Sorry we were delayed by the previous guests check out. What a treat to have a pontoon ride with Mike as your host. Horseshoe Lake is a beautiful, southern Minnesota lake but can have days with some poor water conditions so by getting out on the pontoon you were able to experience that. Unfortunately, because the home is privately owned, you will find personal belongings there. Over time, with the owner spending less time there it may be less personalized but part of the fun of airbnb is living in someone's home. I'm sure you will find this as you stay at other properties.
