FELT LIKE HOME❤

  • 5 out of 5
Although our stay was short we enjoyed every minute. The cabin is very cozy and inviting (we didn't want to go back to the city!) The location is perfect...close to everything. The pool table was a huge hit with our family, we had tournaments everyday☺If a cabin retreat is in our future again someday...we'll be returning to this cabin!

CLEAN, COMFORTABLE, AND BEAUTIFUL COTTAGE!

  • 5 out of 5
Husband and I rented the cottage for the weekend for a quiet weekend getaway, and to scout out Lake Arrowhead in case we wanted to bring the kids up later in the year.
The house was in a good location - easy walk to downtown and to the lake trail.
The house was beautifully decorated and we felt comfortable the minute we walked in. We cooked most of our meals at the house, and it felt just like home. The game room was great and we could easily see us and the kids having a great weekend there. Will keep the cottage on our short list for when we come back.

ALL I CAN SAY IS, WOW!

  • 5 out of 5
What an amazing cottage. We could have spent our entire trip relaxing in the cottage and enjoying the beautiful sounds, smells and view (not to mention the fireplace, pool table and various patios and picnic table). Everything was perfection down to the scent of the linens and towels. I will be asking the owner what type of detergent they use. We had issues figuring out the internet and cable, but we didn't care enough to contact the owners...who wants to watch TV when you're surrounding by the beauty of nature and tranquility. Even though we were a few of the only people on the lake, the kayaks were great! We drove around for 45 minutes trying to find the dock (Burnt Mill Beach Club) and after looking at the map we realized it was a mile from the cottage (hint - turn left at Bin 189).

I look forward to visiting the cottage again with more family and friends during peak season. It's a great place for adults and kids!

JUST PERFECT!

  • 5 out of 5
The cabin is just perfect and Janice was very responsive. My husband, son and dog decided to get away for a last minute trip. We were lucky enough to enough snow to get to sled around the property. From the moment we walked in, we felt at home. The game room is fantastic, and allowed us to have privacy if needed. I highly recommend this vintage cottage for a romantic or family getaway alike.

OWNERS ARE VERY RESPONSIVE!-A WONDERFUL STAY!

  • 5 out of 5
Please read this if you read the two star review, as we stayed right before them! We were super excited to rent this home before Christmas 2012! Unlike the previous review, this is great cabin, the outside stairs are steep and we had no problem in the snow, there is a sturdy hand rail and I felt safe even with a bum knee, take it slow! We had a few concerns during our stay, one is TV cable not working or we just could not figure it out, and ran out of kitchen towels. We called the owner and they were very responsive, came out to show us how the TV works, and brought a bunch of new towels. Now that is service, but you need to ask, communicate if you have questions! Overall our girls and my husband and I enjoyed everything about the cabin, we were warm inside with snow flakes falling outside...beautiful! The pool room is a blast, the portable heater did not take long to heat up the space! One more comment, we have rented many homes and looked at a lot of properties online and we are discerning about the homes we rent, this met our high expectations and we are planning on coming back!
Thank you Janice!

NOT WORTH THE MONEY

  • 2 out of 5
We rented this home for christmas in 2012 for a small family get together..we were disappointed with this rental property for several reasons: 1. The stairs leading to the house are very steep and a serious hazzard for anyone over 65 but also for young children in any weather condition, especially when it freezes. 2. Lack of basic supplies such as towels, toilet paper, dishwasher liquid etc, 3. The game room has no heater and all of the lights were not working so were unable to use it. 4. Getting a phone call at 8 am on day of departure to tell us to vacate the property on time was somewhat discourteous, especially since we packed everything up the night before and the owners's brother, who also happens to live next door, knew we were planning on an early drive off the mountain due to weather condition 5. We have rented vacation homes for over 15 yrs and never stayed in a rental where several doors/cabinets were locked... doesn't give you a very cozy feeling and made us feel intrusive. Overall, I cannot recommend this rental. There are many other vacation rentals to choose from.

Owner's Response: It is both surprising and disappointing to receive this review so long (nearly 8 months)after your stay at our cottage. We had no idea that you had any of these concerns. We always encourage our guests to call/text or email us during their stay if they have any questions or concerns. Had you called us we could have directed you to the correct wall switch to turn the heater and lights on inside the gazebo/game room, or instructed our housekeeper to come by if you felt like any of the linens and supplies were running low.

In the description of our listing and the accompanying pictures/video we try our best to accurately describe and represent the cottage, including the stairs at the front of the cottage that lead down from the street. In the winter we make sure there is a good supply of ice melt/salt available to prevent icing of the stairs. If it snows a gentleman comes by to remove the snow from the stairways and parking areas. Our winter guests usually welcome and often hope for snowy, winter weather but they also understand that winter weather is a challenge that requires extra care and caution.

We do not telephone our guests to remind them about checkout time. However, we do occasionally send a reminder email or text message on days when guests are scheduled to check-out in the morning and other guests check-in the same day in the afternoon. This is done as a courtesy message to help ensure that there is ample time to clean and prepare the cottage between stays.

Clearly you perceive your stay at our cottage as not measuring up to the excellent standard that we strive for. For that we are sorry!! We only wish we had the opportunity to address these issues during your stay rather than so long after the fact.
