Renters Nightmare!

  • 1 of 5

Arrived to an uncleaned cabin. Dirty linens/laundry, unmade beds, refrigerator dirty and turned off, dirty bathrooms, etc. Place had not been cleaned after the previous group left. Not enough clean sheets to remake all of the beds. Used a set of sheets that we had packed. Owner/operator lives about 235 miles away. Landline in rental allows for local calls only and our cell phones got limited service. Was able to leave message for owner. He did respond by calling the house phone. On his initial call, he apologized and said he had a call into his cleaning staff and would get back to us. In the meantime, we had coolers full of food that needed refrigeration so I cleaned the refrigerator using dish soap that we brought. We could find very little cleaning supplies on hand. Owner called back at 5:30 p.m. and said his cleaner could be there in 90 minutes which would have been 7:00 p.m. or come first thing next day to do whatever was needed. We had been on the road for 4.5 hrs and did not want to sit around for another 4 hrs watching a cleaner do what should have been done. I told him this was unacceptable. He assured us that he would make it right. We decided to clean the cabin ourselves. Trip had to be made to pick up cleaning supplies. The basement toilet did not work. That was discovered later that night by first person who flushed the toilet. Wasn't used during our weeks stay. Basement very wet and musty smelling. People who slept downstairs woke to wet beds. It was that damp. An old dehumidifier was found and it ran constantly. This is not an inexpensive rental by any means. We expected, at the very least to be reimbursed for the first nights stay. After all, the owner assured us that he would make it right. That did not happen. He reimbursed us for one half of a nights stay and told us that since we were returning guests, that if we booked a week for 2017, he would take one half of a nights stay off. Kind of smacks of blackmail or bribery in our opinion. He was more concerned about getting another weeks rental from us than anything else. Greedy and cheap, cheap, cheap! We are rating this place a zero due to the condition we found the place in and the total lack of customer service that one would expect. The owner referred to his unclean rental as a "hiccup" to our vacation. Really?? There are many nicer rentals on this lake. We will not be back to this one. Once burned, lesson learned. We do not recommend this rental.

More than I expected.

Our family enjoyed our stay at this beautiful and well maintained lake home, the kids liked the swimming beach, and great fishing. I will definitely go back next year and not pack all that I did, the home is very well stocked. Thank you for sharing your home.

Great Getaway for all ages

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the lake house in the fall of 2015.

The house is a modest home with basic amenities that brought our entire family back together.

We appreciated the cleanliness of the home and the stocked linens, we needed only to bring food and a few board games.
