Beautiful house, lots of light

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautiful, with a lot of windows and hardwood floors and ceilings. Our kids loved a small loft area. Enjoyed it very much.

We wish we'd read this review before we booked this house. I hope it helps you.

  • 3 of 5

We have stayed at a number of VRBO props & we now realize we've been very lucky. In those instances, the owner's were very interested in us enjoying our stay to the fullest. We stayed at a house in Maine where the listing said "My goal is to ensure anything you might reach for will be here". That is the opposite of this house. It is clear these owners are interested in making money by providing the absolute bare minimum possible. You are renting walls & furniture with some dishes & utensils. Other than that, this house is bare with as little expenditure as possible. The toilet paper was 1 ply as an example. The trash thing is also very cumbersome and the internet went in and out constantly.

There were also several things that were, at best, misleading.

THIS HOUSE DOESN'T HAVE "AIR CONDITIONING". This was our number 1 search criteria. It says it has it but that's just not an accurate statement. There is 1 window unit in the living room upstairs on the far wall. The bedrooms are on the bottom floor & don't get any ac at all. It was very hot when we arrived & in the bedrooms during the day but did cool down a little at night with all the floor fans blowing (no ceiling fans down stairs either). If you are used to no ac you'll be fine. Also, they list "Satellite/Cable" which isn't true. It gets the 4 networks, CSpan, & 1 other local channel. Kristin texted us that the owner only signed up for those channels. We were able to email her up until we paid but we tried twice after arriving & they came back saying the address was no longer valid. In addition, we had a problem with one of the smoke alarms chirping & left her a message at both cell and home that she has yet to return. I will say that we called the owner who called us back, was very nice, & tried to help by giving us the combination to the closet & we found a battery in there. We paid the extra $45 for sheets & towels & found a pile of very cheap T-Shirt sheets down stairs at 1am when we arrived and had to make the beds. They keep the sheets in the closet so apparently they charge $45 to wash them although the cleaning person told us she has never used the washer and dryer. BTW - T-Shirt sheets are not a great choice in July with no ac so bring your own. There were large ants everywhere in the house and the back porch looks peaceful but the highway traffic thru the trees was very loud.

There are lots of heaters so this is a better property for winter time use.

Our vacation was GREAT. The house was very spacious.

  • 4 of 5

Our kids loved the cubby hole. The rooms were spacious and extremely clean. There was a little hiccup with linens but was immediately rectified within an hour of checking into the property. We will definitely stay there again. The lady that cleans the property was absolutely amazing. The only inconvenience while staying there is trash removal. When you stay with 9 people you tend to have more trash and we had to go to the transfer station quite a bit. Other than that, the property was PERFECT.

Great house with a few issues

  • 2 of 5

I booked this property using the filter 'Linens provided.' About a week before our stay, I received an email with instructions including to bring linens and towels. I followed up immediately with no response for multiple days. I sent another email 4 days before our stay and did not receive a response until we were already checked in. In order to receive linens, we were required to pay an additional amount.

In addition, the trash procedure was difficult. If we were checking out on Monday, we were instructed to bring all trash Sunday and were only allowed to leave one bag of trash on Monday. As a group of 10, we generated more than one bag of trash, so to avoid the fine of leaving more than one bag, we had to bring trash with us. There are no trash bins outside either, so before Sunday, we had to keep the trash inside the house.

Other than those issues, the house was great. Could use some cooking items like peeler, garlic press, etc. as well as some knives that are functional.

We really enjoyed our time there and it was perfect for a group of 10.

Owner's Response: I'm sorry you had a couple issues with the house. In response to the "Linens Provided..." issue. I have asked HomeAway/VRBO several times to change the wording/format on the listing. The listing says "Linens Provided..." BUT you have to hover over the "Linens Provided..." to get the rest of the sentence which reads "Linens Provided for an additional fee of $45". It is misleading and they do not deem this a big enough issue to change, but it is understandably confusing to a renter searching for a house. Thank you for the feedback.

Girls Annual Ski Trip

  • 4 of 5

We rented this place last year also and loved it. We absolutely love the sauna and how open the living area is. The only complaint I would have is having to drive to the dump more than once to get rid of our trash. Maybe you should look into a shed for trash and then have it picked up. Just a suggestion. Other than that great time, beautiful home.
