Not as advertised. Moisture content made health concern.

With no ill will towards Kate, we have a duty to be honest in our review towards encouraging trust and understanding in the VRBO community. There were enough issues that we chose not to occupy the unit.

We arrived after dark, to find the house across the street from the river, not on the river. The stone stairway to get to the main door was narrow and steep, with uneven (one near 1.5 to 2 feet high by estimate) and irregular steps, and one of those broken, creating scary potential for a fall with a rough landing.

The first floor, to include the bathroom and kitchen, were mostly clean and acceptable.

The second floor, where the bedroom, and access to the sleeping loft, and the main living space all are, was a different situation. There were multiple specimens of outdoor plants growing into the house through the walls, there were spider webs with live arachnids in the bedroom and at the top of the ladder to get to the loft. The humidity was tangibly thick. There was an odor of mildew. We found mold on a leather chair. The spiders grossed us out, but the mold and mildew gave us cause for respiratory health concern.

Someone had been there earlier to put some fresh flowers in the house, yet the air conditioner was left off - when it could have been running to help dehumidify the place.

We would not recommend this rental to others.

I truly enjoyed my stay in the little cabin. It was so peaceful and the owner worked to meet all my needs. It is a very quiet area not to far away from town. I was in Lexington for the three day event and it seemed that anywhere I wanted to go was 20 minute or less drive. I found that very good. The evenings were so peaceful to sit in the log sitting room with a glass of wine. I would consider staying there again on my next visit.

Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had such a wonderful late fall stay in this olde worlde cabin. We had everything we needed for our long weekend retreat. The fresh flowers and other little touches made it a special place for us. We were blessed with mild weather so enjoyed morning coffee on the patio listening to the birds and appreciating the peace and quiet. Only 20 minutes from downtown Lexington, it was a perfect get away but not too far away! We look forward to visiting again.
