Home was very clean.
This was a great little spot back in the middle of no where with all the privacy you could want for a weekend getaway for 2. Most people complain about the bugs and what not but guess what its nature. You cant have the peace and quiet without taking in some of what nature brings. We could sit on the porch and watch lightning bugs fill the yard like stars on a clear night. Overall we enjoyed our stay and would recommend anyone looking for privacy and relaxation to give this one a shot.
Unfortunately we have had really quite hostile and aggressive comments back from the owner, after she left us suggestion/comment cards asking if there was anything which could be improved... we did not expect this level of aggression when after all she asked us for our input. While the cabin was cute this has left us with a very negative last memory of out stay and accordingly will not be returning or recommending this owner.
Passive-aggressive and non-communicative guest.
I never met or talked with this guest. I guess to make a judgment on one’s personality without knowing or meeting the person must be a special skill.
I’m sorry I did not properly explain the importance of calling me for any assistance you needed during your stay. The guest was able to call to check in with my husband (I was at an appointment) and I assumed quite capable of dialing me if there was a problem or question. The comment card left read: “Sorry Brenda but I couldn't find an iron and didn't want to disturb you. As the water supply is not suitable for drinking perhaps you should advise guests to stock up before arrival at Green Valley to prevent accidental use/trips to shops to stock up. Same applies to liquid detergent for washer.”
This is a copy of my message I sent one day after their arrival: “Hi, Claire,
Just checking in with you. Do you need anything? Brenda"
No response. I tried calling the cabin and no one answered.
Here is my message to the guests regarding the comment card they left: “Hi, Claire,
I read your note that you left. Your concerns could have been addressed with a phone call to me. I always stress if the guest has any questions, please call me. I attempted to check in with you on Tuesday, but you did not reply. I also called the house and got no answer.
The water is very safe to drink. In fact, it's very tasty as it is drawn from limestone rather than shale which is on the other side of the road where my other two vacation homes are located. The bottles (2) are a complimentary welcome gift plus the brownies and the s'mores I leave for all my guests. The sign on the coffee maker should read: please use bottled water because the water will leave calcium deposits in the coffee maker. The water is potable and if not, I couldn't rent the home.
Also, there was laundry detergent in a bottle underneath the cabinet next to the machines. Again, a phone call (which is free by the way) would have alleviated any concerns from you and any wonderment from me as to why my guests didn't have the courtesy to contact me and made assumptions rather than gathering facts.
In the future, please call your host rather than leaving comment cards which indicate dissatisfaction with your stay. If you do leave a rating, please take this into consideration. I will be very honest with my response. Thanks, Brenda”
I was amazed that the guests found it easier to leave a card after the fact than to contact me to resolve any issue. Any owner would find offense to this. Then to further call me aggressive after explaining to them about their concerns without a call from them is down right “passive-aggressive.” Any future guest reading this needs to know my big button is communication. If you don’t want any contact with the owner, then don’t book my cabin. I ask that guests call in to check-in. That is usually not a problem. Also, if they need anything or have a question, call me. Seems reasonable, yes? Why then did the guests leave a note assuming something without checking the facts. I would be concerned if I was an owner renting to this kind of behavior. You don’t know what to expect but you would not expect a phone call. If this is prickly, then what kind of behavior is this guest exhibiting?
Great property. Relaxing. Comfortable.
We found the property comfortable and relaxing. The only con for us was the endless number of checklists and signs giving us instructions on what we are required to do while we are at the property and before we left. We felt we were in military temporary housing. If there were anything I would change I would reduce the number signs everywhere.
Lol! That's just for the Navy guests. Most of my guests appreciate the signs and attention to details. I don't belief any of the signs are rude and if I were to remove them it would be an issue to some guests. Just know that I am friendly, approachable, and easy to work with as long as my guests verbally communicate with me on any issues, problems. or suggestions. You were a wonderful guest and you are welcome back. Just let me know what signs you want taken away. Hot tub towels, no smoking, check out instructions, reminder and phone number to call owner, etc. Green Valley Junction is Green...Serene.
Great Girls Getaway
My two friends and I came for a “girls” getaway weekend. We arrived late on a Friday afternoon, and although it was raining, we were able to sit outside on the large covered porch and enjoy the peacefulness of the property (it was very private). We enjoyed a very nice dinner in town at the Moonshadows restaurant. Luckily, the next day was beautiful and we drove up to Skyline Drive in Shenandoah Park. Upon return to the cabin, we enjoyed the hot tub which is enclosed in a separate building behind the house.
Although the cabin appears rustic, it was very clean and well maintained. We were not able to use the upstairs bedroom since access to it was via pull down attic stairs, which we were not comfortable using (especially if one needed to get up during the night). (The owner did let me know about the access when I had asked when I booked.) The two downstairs bedrooms were 1King in one and 2 twins in the other. The beds were very comfortable and there was plenty of room. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay at the cabin.
Thank you for the feedback. I didn’t realize that would be an issue with your party considering I had four beds in the home. I’m learning more about who my guests should be for this home. So based on your input and the guest prior, I’ve decided to limit this home to couples and/or families only. Kids have no problem with the pull down area and couples wouldn’t need it or have any issues with it. This would probably manage everyone’s expectations better.
I do thank you for choosing Green Valley Junction and leaving the home in a tidy manner. Green...Serene but now for couples and families only.
We really enjoyed this cabin. Perfect for a peaceful getaway. They have everything you could need, including linens! We will be back!
Thank you for taking time to post a review. We pride ourselves by providing everything our guests would need. You don’t need to bring any household items. Just bring yourselves, some favorite foods, and your personal items. Thanks for staying at Green Valley Junction. Green...Serene.
Lovely property, very well designed. We had a fantastic time staying there, will definitely keep in mind when traveling to the area again.
Thank you for your kind remarks and yes keep it in mind when you travel this way. I treat my return guests even better. Green...Serene.
