I used to own on the lake, did the vacation rental thing too. It was my right to take advantage of the opportunity, one which I would have gladly NOT had to do. It helped pay for the taxes and it was not as easy as those might think. Nevertheless anyone in a similar situation has every right to pursue it. I take exception with anyone saying otherwise. The lake is not a typical neighborhood. The lake gets noisy with or without rentals. The dwellings are very close together and people come there to enjoy themselves. Jet skis, bass boats, fireworks, dogs, big family parties, and drunken carryings on are the norm. In my rental situation, I lived nearby and oversaw the comings and goings, dealt with noise issues, and did my best to respect concerns that came to my attention, attempting for the most part to anticipate and mitigate issues beforehand. Even so I put up with sneers and looks from my more prosperous new comer neighbors. They thought they could bring their suburban mind set with them but how would they know otherwise? We all want it the way we want it.
