Why APRIL WHITLOCK chose Union
The Kentucky Cabin is a custom built home that designed, had built and furnished ourselves.
Max guests:8 (sleeps up to 8 adults)
100% refund for cancellations more than 60 days before check-in date. 50% refund for cancellations more than 30 days before check-in date.
The cabin is excellent - it is cozy, clean and comfortable and situated in a quiet, beautiful area. Extras are provided by the hosts; games, fire pit, and fishing equipment to use at their pond. The host and her family are very warm and welcoming. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
This small cottage is situated directly behind owners home. They have four dogs, one of which barked loud & long at 3:30 AM, waking all four of us up. Small beds (missed that upon booking). Worse yet, low quality bedding, very cheap, hard pillows made it difficult to sleep as well. The 2nd bedroom on main level lacks a closet...rather, the closet is replaced with a loud heating/cooling system within and a washer dryer. The single bathroom (very tiny) would have been less of an issue had it had some shelving to place our items. We'd read a review, prior to booking, that included an individual pointing out the bathroom lacked space to place items. In reply the owner/manager responded with a post suggesting they'd missed the medicine cabinet and that there was room in basket on wall, both of which we discovered untrue. No medicine cabinet to place belongings, no room in small basket on wall. Having stayed in our share of rental portals, the amount we were charged was not worth it in all of our opinions (4 adults). Though we remain interested in Vrbo, and plan return to this area, we'll definitely not be back to this property. Part of us feels terrible as we've never found it necessary to write a review that resulted in poor and sorry outcomes. On the other hand, people like you that take time to read these, ought know the facts before booking. Also, beware of outrageous "cleaning fees".
Thank you so much for your review, Renee.
I do want to take the time to respond. We are very clear in the description of the Shack that it sits directly behind our main house. We are also clear that 7 dogs live on our property.
My husband had gotten home late Friday from a jeep trip and let the dogs out the back, forgetting that you all were in the shack. Our apologies. We did apologize to you the next day, after your text message making sure we were aware that your sleep was disturbed by the barking dog.
Everyone that stays in the shack deserves a quiet, restful nights sleep. We typically let the dogs out the front if they need to go outside in the middle of the night and make them come back inside right away to avoid barking and disturbing the guests. That night my husband mistakenly let the dogs out the back and we are very sorry they woke you up.
Also, it is very clear in the description that there are 2 bedrooms on the main floor - one with a queen size bed and one with a double size bed.
The pillows on the bed are the Panda pillows. The features of the Panda pillows are advertised as:
Natural Strength Properties
If you found them to be uncomfortable, again, my apologies, as we wish everyone that stays on our property to have an enjoyable stay.
You said in your review that you read about the Shack having a medicine cabinet, you are mistaken. There has been no review, nor any statement by me claiming that there is a medicine cabinet in the Shack bathroom. The photos online of the bathroom should be enough to show accurately the size and amenities available. And you can read all the reviews to see that there is no conversation about a medicine cabinet.
As to the bedding, I am very sorry you didn't find the thread count of the bedding up to your standards. Again, we seek to give our guests a lovely stay in the Shack.
One thing I did note was that you did not complain about the state of the cleanliness of the shack. That is because I pay the complete cleaning fee to someone that does an impeccable job of cleaning the shack. It takes a few hours to be able to vacuum, mop, clean all the surfaces, under the beds, wash/dry towels/bedding, sanitize the bathroom/shower, and wipe down everything in time for the next guests, especially when there has been 8 or more guests in the shack.
We wish you the best,
Vacation togetherness. No separation motel rooms!!
We could come in after a long day at the Ark or the Museum and be able to sit down and laugh and talk about the days events. We had comfy sofas and comfy beds.
The down side - the stairs and a blow up bed that leaked. Since Bob slept on the bed and didn't feel a thing, it gave us a lot of laughs and something to tease him about the next morning. By the way, Bob and Rob liked Henry best.
Aw! I wish you would have told me about the blow-up bed that leaked! I had a brand new, never-been-used blow-up mattress up there for you to use!
You were able to laugh about it. 😃�. We loved having you all and thank you so much for choosing the shack!!
We really enjoyed staying at this property! the location was wonderful, the cabin was very clean and the hostess was very warm and friendly. We have stayed in many cabins and this was by far the cleanest.
Thank you! We enjoyed having you all!
Everything about the place was better than expected. I have stayed all over the country and this have been my all time favorite.
We are so glad you all chose the shack! You guys were great and we hope you come back to stay with us!
Cozy Cabin, Perfect Location
We flew into Kentucky to visit the Ark & Creation Museum. This cabin was the perfect spot to stay, in between both and close to the airport. The location is peaceful and convenient. The cabin itself is welcoming and beautiful! We loved staying here and our kids loved the stocked fishing pond. Thank you for making our time in Kentucky so enjoyable!
So glad your family enjoyed the shack! We loved having you all!
