This was a wonderful place to stay and Carolina Cabins was great to work with. Our only problem was internet connection, as several family members needed to “work”, and could not do so efficiently. Other than that, it was a dream home!! Very clean and well equipped for everything we could possibly want!
This is a great house and a perfect spot for large family gatherings. We had a wonderful time celebrating my youngest grandson's birthday and watching him play football for APP State.
There are a few things that would make this home a perfect home, instead of a 3 star rating.
The refrigerator drawers were broken and falling apart
There were no directions for the TV in the main room and we could not get it to work - the other TV's worked fine.
The kitchen was poorly equipped, especially since this is a large home that encourages entertaining. Not enough pans or serving dishes/plates/baking pans/cookie sheets.
The hand mixer would only accept one beater, so was somewhat ineffective when I was making the birthday cake.
The sheets/pillow case in one of the downstairs bedrooms were dirty-stained and obviously used before we arrived and not changed.
The closets - or lack of - is a real mystery. It seemed like the house did not get finished and that was one of the last things. No where to hang a coat or anything! Very difficult without hangers in the house or rods to hang any clothes on.
Luxury Home that has drifted into disrepair
Adirondack is a once beautiful home in a spectacular setting. Unfortunately it gives the impression of a home that was bought out of foreclosure and not maintained. The front entrance is impressive except for the broken tiles. Entering the house, it gives a good impression until you notice the stains on the rugs. The once beautiful wood floors are deeply gouged, particularly in the lower level. The crisper drawers in the refrigerator are broken & hanging loose on one side. We found the pots & pans to be inadequate for a house of this price range; I left a note with three particular pans where the amount of damage is such that they need to be replaced. The stove, microwave, dishwasher & oven all worked well. The grilling area on the deck is nice and the grill worked well.
I have rented a number of higher end homes and been very pleased. Adirondack was a disappointment and could use some TLC.
159 Adironack Review - Fontana
Faulty alarm system ruined first nights stay as alarm stated fire, carbon monoxide, intruder, offender, for hours. Nobody to contact for help at 11:45pm thru the morning. Had to prop pillows against alarms to TRY and limit alarm sirens. Problem occurred again on Tuesday when service men were sent the house to investigate faulty alarm. Unit was fixed after three visits by service man on Wednesday.
The BBQ unit has a faulty igniter hardware per service man. Had to light BBQ manually with fireballs occurring. Service man also said was this was dangerous. They left a extension lighter but did not work after they left.
Upon arrival, we saw at least a dozen cigarette butts at front entrance and thrown over railing at BBQ station below...
The carpet runner in living room is stained BAD and should be removed
The BBQ deck area was not swept and cleaned. After we cleaned the outside decks the decks remained clean for the remained of the week.
Basically this property needs better maintenance. Fix the stone work at front entrance!
Waiting for financial credit/compensation for the first days alarm ordeal per Carolina cabin employee's conversation. Spoke to Phyllis, Chasie, Mike.... Not sure if I would come back???? Thank you!
Unfortunately we were very dissapointed in our house including cleanliness, kitchen amenities and value received.
The house was not clean, there was dog hair around most of the house, dust and cobwebs everywhere and just a general overall substandard house in regards to cleanliness. The kitchen pots and pans were not even safe, the Teflon coating on 90% of the pans was coming off the pan, the utensils were substandard, there were a total of three wine classes and very few other classes and cups in the kitchen. This unit was not stocked for 14 people. The ice maker would not work in the refrigerator (a man came and took a picture of it - so what ???). There was only one outlet that worked on the kitchen countertop.
Many of the units outside areas were not good. The grill did not work sufficiently, we had to light it with a match, it would not heat properly to cook. The grill was so filled with dried grease we had to scrape some away in order to light the grill. The outside refrigerator was broken as well. The lounge chairs on the deck did not have a full complement of cushions, the ones that were there were dirty, stained or had cigarette burns in them.
It would have been nice to be notified that we were responsible for taking trash to the landfill ahead of time (by the way).
These are all non-issues if you are paying for a low rent property. However when you are paying $5,000 for a weeks stay you have higher expectations. Unfortunately our expectations sadly were not met. We all felt that your pictures and reviews of this property were misleading at best.
We love the mountains, it will be hard to work with Carolina Cabins again in the future I am afraid.

Great subdivision. Great Location. Great House. The House and the driveway could use a bit of TLC as it is aging and in need of floor tile, hardwood, carpet wear and tear repair as well as driveway weed removal. The ceiling in the master shower shows some mositure changes and the couches in the basemaent are very uncomfortable and out of place for this house. There is no mircowave oven and the convection oven that looks like a microwave oven does not work. The cookware is limited (ie no kettle to boil water... possibly taken by prior guests). The garage is full of junk and gives the impression of indifference which would in turn transfer to the guests not caring for the property or thinking its OK to make a mess. I Would not recommend renting it to a group of high schoolers or even college students.
