Remote mountain cabin
We wanted to rent a mountain cabin for a weekend getaway. This cabin is well maintained and very spacious. We really enjoyed having the expansive property to enjoy. Our two dogs had a wonderful time roaming the property. It is in close proximity to town and trails but far enough away to feel private and secluded.
Needs a little TLC
There were several issues (yes, some were minor) 1) the lack of cleanliness, if there is a cleaning fee - which there is...so one would think the house would be clean upon arrival - free of bugs and cobwebs, dirty fixtures, dirt in corners etc.. 2) small insects all over the house - lady bugs and wasps were everywhere. We found them on the furniture, curtains, on the kitchen table, on our clothes! 3) the freezer was broken. Not making ice & no way to store ice that was purchased without a cooler 4) downstairs tv didn't work & fell off the wall 5) no signage or reflectors at the driveway entrance 6) they could have used a "how to" instructional handbook for things like the tv remote controls; turning on and off the gas fireplace, the thermostat etc. 7) the need for additional outdoor lighting near the walkways. Very hard to see in the dark and 8) they could use some rugs both inside and outside. It was pouring down rain and coming in and out of the house onto a slick and wet floor was dangerous. We had to load our vehicles in the rain and almost fell several times...
9) and the living room furniture was horribly uncomfortable. The couch has no arms and has extremely deep cushions, making it hard to get up and no way to get comfortable. The chairs are equivalent to patio furniture. If the owners had to spend any time in the living room, I feel certain that they would replace the furniture. The couch is low and the tv is mounted high on the wall above the fireplace. Watching it causes your neck to hurt.
*These comments are meant to bring attention to some things that would not only make it more comfortable for your guests, it could bring additional rental income and raise your 3 star rating to a 5! We would come back if a few improvements were made.
A Little Disappointed This Year
We stayed for Christmas 2018 and everything was great. The house was decorated with garland and a tree. The place was clean. It was the perfect place for me and my husband and our small dogs. This year, however, we arrived to find that the heat was off and it was 55 degrees in the house. Took quite a long time to warm it up. There was no tree - just some little trinkets placed around and a 2 foot bush sitting on the floor (unplugged). It was not Christmasy at all. There were lady bugs everywhere! The biggest disappointment was that the freezer did not work. We had no ice, and we had stopped at the grocery store on the way in and bought frozen foods. Of course, we didn't notice that it wasn't working until most everything had thawed out. We ended up throwing out meat and frozen veggies and a pizza. And, as much as I love having a place to take my dogs, it amazes me that some people will allow their animals to urinate everywhere. The bedroom carpet has evidently been used (between last year and this year) as a pet bathroom. While it didn't smell, it was terribly spotted. With all this said, if some of these things were remedied, we would probably stay again, but we would want a guarantee that at least the refrigerator would be in working condition and the house would be warmed up for us.
Thank you for taking time to write such a thorough review and returning to the cabin. We hate that we came up short of your expectations from a decorating standpoint, but there is no excuse for the freezer or heat being turned off. These were obviously missed during an inspection and will get the freezer repaired or replaced if necessary. If you would like, please let us know the value of the food you lost and we would be happy to refund you for that. We do hope that you’ll return next year to improved conditions. Please enjoy the remainder of your holiday season.
Country Cabin Get away
The host, Ashley, was very responsive to each of my messages when we had questions, which is important to us. The right turn into the cabin driveway off the dirt road common driveway is almost impossible to see at night so you almost need to be aware of the actual distance and go very slow to find it. A large reflector placed at that turn in would be a great help. The property had everything we needed in terms of number of beds and bathrooms to give 3 couples their own space, of course we knew there was no privacy in sleeping area of the loft but a bathroom does provide private dressing area. The floor of the loft is the actual ceiling of the master bedroom below (no insolation between) so be aware normal volume conversation can be fully heard between the two areas, and it just so happened that a small cup of water that spilled in the loft poured directly onto a laptop computer that was in the exact same spot on the king bed in the bedroom below, which was what confirmed no insolation between floors and ceilings. Thankfully it was a small amount of water, the computer ended up being ok, but did alert us to be aware. The dog door and fenced in dog yard area was important to us, and was exactly what we needed. The level of cleanliness in terms of housekeeping was moderate for us (bit dusty, some stained linens, and we saw some residue food on some kitchen items so we just washed everything before we used it, but we realize that is an individual preference). There seem to be a large number of wasp nests near the roof and we had to kill a few that got in the house, so you may want to be aware of those, but again, that is somewhat part of being in the country and bit rustic. These were small things compared to the benefits of being in a beautiful rural area with cows in nearby pastures and quiet space to relax in a rustic setting , which was our goal.
appears to be poorly maintained. dirty. would not recommend
1) trash can full and stinking upon arrival
2) light bulbs out
3) very poor internet connection
4) bedroom carpet heavily stained
5) bug infestation
6) handrails splintering
7) no window screens
8) porch rocker broke
9) better toilet tissue at motel *
10) vacuum dirt container full
11)air conditioning/heat temperamental
My overall impression is that this is a poorly maintained, poorly managed rental property that VRBO should remove from their listing until it's brought up to an acceptable level.. As is, I would not recommend this property.. also, if this is a standard that VRBO lists as acceptable then, frankly, I'd have a problem recommending VRBO
We apologize that you feel this way. It is always our goal to provide the best service possible to our guests. We are constantly working to improve the property. Since your stay the rocker has been replaced, the railing has been replaced, a new fireplace insert, as well as many other items.
We will continue to make improvements and hope in the future you will give our property another opportunity to meet your expectations.
