Not what I expected
I really was thrilled that we were going to be able to fish, swim and play in the river next to the cabin. Since we are from where it is already very humid and hot we expected the same weather. Sadly it got down to 32 degrees and the high was only 48. All of us brought swimsuits and summer clothes.
The river too, was dangerously swift. We had a three year old and a six year old so we lined up chairs as a wall so they could not get close to the river. The two children could not play outside much because of the cold and the danger of the river.
It was mentioned in the book in the cabin what months the river was low and safe to swim in. Please add this to your description online so that others know what months to come. We would have never rented this cabin this time of year if we had known what the river and weather was like.
As far as the actual cabin, i was very impressed with all the added comforts supplied there. Their was dish soap, zip lock bags, shampoo, soap, bandaids, medicine for varies things in case of emergencies. It was such a blessing to have all the extra supplies there. Their was also even two fishing poles in case you forgot yours. The outside would have had plenty of furniture and even a gas and charcoal grill(you must bring your own gas canister that was not mentioned). If it was nice enough outside to have used them.
It was very cold when we went. It was like going backwards in time again which we all hated. We needed to have the heaters on to stay warm. The only problem is, if you turned them on it was hard to find a setting where it wasn’t severely hot. If you turned them completely off, you froze.
The housekeeper cleaning the place IS NOT doing her job. Both bathrooms and the shower had dirty sinks and hair in the sinks and drains. They had not been cleaned. The rest of the house had dust and tons of cobwebs everywhere. I could tell that none of the furniture is ever moved when cleaned or dusted properly.
The other problem was cat hair everywhere. I am highly allergic to cat hair. I knew that the porch as it was called on line, had cats but i thought it was not an actual part of the main cabin. Like a small no carpet regular porch. It is a huge living room with access to the entire house for a cat and carpet and cloth furniture so cat hair was on everything.
For us it was not a good vacation.
Wow! I don't know where to begin.
I guess with the weather. I felt really bad that you experienced extremely unseasonable cold weather. Mid June in Colo is normally cool at night (50's) and pleasant during the day (65-75). It is never "hot and very humid" in the mountains. Minimal research would have provided accurate climate conditions for this location. It is always necessary to bring some warm clothing no matter the season.
In our VRBO listing we have never advertised swimming as an activity. Colo had a lot of snow this winter and therefore the runoff has been higher then usual. Most people enjoy the river
for the view and the sound. Even if they are not swift the rivers in Colo are always cold.
As for heat, our electric heat is controlled separately for each room and has a number of different setting. We live in this cabin most of the summer and fall and have never been "severely hot". There is also a large fireplace which we provide firewood for.
We have been renting this cabin for 5 or so years using the same cleaning person and we have never had a single complaint.
We were living in the cabin up to a day before she cleaned so I know it was not in the condition that you described. I personally spent a lot of time vacuuming up cobwebs when we opened up the cabin for the summer.. Unfortunately the mountains have lots of spiders and the cobwebs are sometimes very hard to see.. They are certainly not everywhere..
As far as cat hair, it is certainly not everywhere either. This is a pet friendly home and although we do our best to keep the hair cleaned up you should expect that there may be some signs of animals. Most animal lovers are fine with this since it allows them to bring there pets with them. If pet allergies are an issue I would suggest a "no pets allowed" rental which most of them are.
Like I said in the email I'm very sorry about the weather, but unfortunately I can't control that However a review that makes it sound as though our cabin was misrepresented online and dirty is not fair. I believe this is obvious by our 5 star rating and the other reviews.
Also, there are 4 gas canisters.in the garage for the bbq.
Wonderful stay. It was as advertised.
We thoroughly enjoyed our time in the Portice cabin. Visited many memorable places from there. Loved Evergreen.
So glad you guys enjoyed yourselves. You were the best renters ever!
Such a beautiful cabin. Perfect location. The sound of the river out back is heaven and all the hummingbirds we got to see were so beautiful. Thanks Portice family for sharing your wonderful piece of heaven on earth. We will be back! 😊
Thank you. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. We spend a lot of time at the cabin as well enjoy every minute.
Cozy, rustic little cabin with a beautiful location next to the river.
Great location, loved seeing all the hummingbirds, the peacefulness you find sitting out by the river. Would definitely return to this place.
Thank you so much! We are very glad you enjoyed our home.
