Amazing house to compliment an amazing weekend!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I, a group of 11, picked this spot for a weekend away from the big city to relax and decompress and we could not have asked for anything more. The house was gorgeous and spotless when we arrived, the nearby lake was beautiful, and the surrounding areas were quiet and perfect a weekend away in the country. We few of us hiked and hit the water and just had an absolute blast. I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a good time. Also, the ownership was prompt to respond to any questions, sent us all the info we needed immediately, and were really laid back which made the process easy and refreshing.

This Cabin Recommended!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for Columbus Day weekend and loved it!! The views are fantastic. The house was quite clean, plenty of towels for our larger group. Dining room and kitchen were great for our meals. Large backyard by the lake where we made a campfire each night. If you're looking for a beautiful cabin with views, this is a great place!

Nice house on a nice property - issues with owner

  • 3 of 5

The house was nice - the only issues we had were that no one had collected the garbage (outside) from the previous rental so the garbage cans were full and didn't leave much room for us to dispose of our trash. Also, the cable was not working during our stay - we called the owner and they said they needed to have someone come out, but seemed unconcerned. The cable thing was not an issue for me personally, we had beautiful weather and spent most of the time outside.

The property is really beautiful. The lake, the lawn - all great. If I had a better experience with the owners I would not only recommend this place, but I would even stay there again myself.

HOWEVER - I cannot seem to get my security deposit back. It has been months, I have called and sent messages through homeaway. The owner does respond, but alas, no check shows up in my mailbox. One time they said that they thought they had sent it to me, but sent it to another renter with the same last name. Our last correspondence was over 3 weeks ago when I was assured once again that it was being sent out. I even offered that they just paypal me to resolve the issue and they said they would not paypal me because I paid the deposit by check and it needed to be paid back by check. I have used homeaway a couple times before and while its not uncommon to have to request that the owner return the security deposit (Even though it is supposed to occur automatically) - usually once you request it you get it back right away. I have never dealt with a situation like this before.

If I do end up getting it back following this review, I will write an update, but if you don't see one, you can bet that I never got that money back.

Owner's Response: Hello, Time Warner Cable had just switched over to digital cable at the time and we had just had a new box put in. When receiving your call, we acted immediately and spent a considerable amount of time on the phone with them troubleshooting. The end result as we shared with you was that the box we had just put in, was defective. We showed no signs of being ''unconcered'' as we would only spend the considerable amount of time and energy to put a new box in for the sake of having the cable that we advertise. We said we would call and immediately did! There was no more we could have possibly done. As for the security deposit, your spouse emailed me on June 30th stating what a nice time your group had at the house and so as such, wanted to stay for following June 15th weekend of 2017. We had a very direct and clear correspondence and me suggesting rather than return the deposit and take again for next year, we could just hold on to that deposit and apply it to the following year. In that same email, they stated "sure, that works. We really had a great time Alison, the house and property are beautiful'. It sounds to me as if there was a miscommunication or oversight on them reaching out to me for that. This is the very first time I am seeing or hearing anything otherwise. Please double check this and we would be more than happy to return the security deposit if you do not indeed want to stay with us again next year, as mentioned in your review. I would be happy to either return it to you, or have your group stay with us again next year. Please let me know. Thank you for renting with us!

Recommended Inside and Out, Would Like to Return

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this house with two other families for the last half of August and enjoyed almost every moment of our stay (aside from the occasional meltdown from the kids!) My husband even enjoyed watching the bear that would occasionally come around. We arrived to an immaculately clean house. The kitchen was the first place I went and even the inside of the refrigerator was kept spotless (I am a bit ocd!). It was important to me knowing we were about to spend almost 2 weeks at the house. The beds and bathrooms were set up nicely, plenty of towels for us and the kids. We loved cooking, watching the soccer games, hanging out outside and we all had so much fun with the campfires we made almost every night. The views from almost everywhere in the house are incredible! The property outside is nice...the yard is large enough to be able to play and relax and enjoy and not be right on top of the lake...you had to walk down a little bit to the lake so we weren't worried with the kids while outside. We did a lot of swimming in the lake though too and really lucked out with amazing weather! The whole vacation for us felt like a truly relaxing getaway. Alison sent a cleaning person over mid-stay for us too! She notified us beforehand and asked for a good time for them to come. This was unexpected and really "wowed" me. My husband is already talking about booking this house again for some time in February to go skiing. I have contacted Allison about it and we are trying to firm up our dates. We will be back soon!

Needs some TLC

  • 2 of 5

Let me start by saying I have rented several properties from this website and have always been pleased with the rental, this is my first unfavorable review. Similar issues were in another review, but dismissed by the owner. This house needs maintenance. We contacted the owner when the air conditioning and the cable were not working upon arrival. The owner told us that they did not know what was wrong but that we could open the windows. When we stated that many of the screens were missing from the windows, we were told it was alright because there are not many bugs. Needless to say, anywhere in the mountains near a lake has bugs! We did discover the screens in the utility closet and were able to install many of them ourselves. We also had to buy some fans because it was very hot upstairs, even with the windows open. When we looked at the central air, the compressor was not wired to the house, never had a chance of getting it working! We did get cable working the last day after several visits from the cable company. The deck needs to be fixed! Many of the boards were rotted and some haphazardly replaced. There were still many areas you could see through the rotted boards! There is a beautiful two story window overlooking the lake, but it was full of cobwebs and cocoons. The rugs were stained and smelled. We had to roll up several and remove from the sleeping areas because they were smelling up the rooms. There were limited number of towels for 10 people, only 1 hand towel for 4 bathrooms. The biggest problem were the smoke detectors. They were all disconnected from the wall, bare wires hanging! We did find one laying on a table upstairs, but not attached/working. We were told and it was stated in the profile there would be a boat, but when asked, the owner said there were no boats allowed on the lake. This did not seem to be the case since there were several on the lake and every other house had either kayaks or boats at their shore. If we had known before hand, we would have brought our own! We did send pictures to the owner of all our findings, but never received any response. I did have to contact them several times to have our security deposit returned. It is stated in the contract it would be returned within 10 business days. After several emails it was returned 25 business days later after many excuses. This is a cute house in a nice area, but until things have been fixed/maintained I would not recommend this rental.
