Great house...great location...terribly neglected
This is a great house, in a great location...lots of wonderful space in a beautiful setting...but this house has been terribly neglected. When we arrived, the house was FILTHY (really), multiple light bulbs were out, bed linens and towels were clean, but not fresh, and the exterior of the home was generally unkempt. In fairness to the owner, I have spoken to him and I believe he was unaware of the condition of the property. It was indicated that he is in the process of changing property managers, so it is presumed that a new property manager will tend to the details necessary to get this property back in shape. I hope so, because this is a great place. However, this property comes at a premium price, and we did not get the value we paid for. When one rents a vacation home, it seems that all of the protection goes to the landlord. Cleaning fees and deposits are costs borne by the tenant, guaranteeing protection for the landlord; but when a tenant does not receive the value that was promised, there is not recourse. Sorry for your luck! So, in this case, we paid a 5-Star price and received a 2-Star product. Very frustrating and disappointing. However, in spite of the situation, our family had a great time, but next year we will have a great time someplace else.
Browning Family Vacation
Mixed, house and grounds beautiful but waterfront no good. Deep mud, so not useful to even tie up a boat. Dock for our 20 ft runabout was fine but no space available for our jetski. Just tied it on outside of boat slip, (a slip should be available for short rental, several slips in front were always unused). Would have gladly paid an extra fee to use an available slip for jetski. Rented a golf cart for hauling people to dock. .Deer too prevalent, sometimes 8 grazing and leaving their deposits in yard. No TVs worked for broadcast but OK for DVDs. WiFi spotty, phone service best on back patio. Had 15 including 2 small children and yet found a shortage of showers with teen girls.
We had 15 people in the house. The space is great, game room is fantastic. The outside entrance was dirty and showed signs of neglect , as did the yard and landscaping. I’m sorry to say that the inside of the house was also dirty with several small issues that needed maintenance. Two dishwashers were in the kitchen but one was out of order.
The property manager and the owner responded to our issues and we appreciated that.
Just a note: the house is located in a neighborhood that doesn’t seem to like Vrbo renters. In fact , one next door neighbor called the Sheriffs Department in Trigg County to report that we had walked across his property to check out the lake level. The Deputy came out to the house , which was pretty much not called for. So if you rent the house, stay clear of the neighbors’ yards.
I could give this home a better rating if it had been cleaner and better cared for and maintained.
The maintenance man did come out to check a broken ceiling fan and the AC and he was surprised at the condition of the house.
With some care and maintenance inside and out , I could give the rental a higher rating.
Lake Barkley Vacation
Property and Lake was great for family of 15. We plan to book again in the future.
Great house, ok yard and lake access.
The house is amazing. Our youth group had a wonderful time playing in the arcade room. The kitchen is beautiful and huge. The bathrooms make you feel like you’re in a resort spa. I talked to the neighbors a little bit and they aren’t very happy about this place being rented out. I’m not sure if it’s allowed by the HOA, so you may want to look into this if that’s something that bothers you. The backyard is pretty sloped, so we couldn’t play some of the backyard games we wanted to, but it’s nice and grassy. The lake access is kind of dank, so we didn’t feel comfortable swimming there, but the resorts beach is very nice and not too far away.
Thank you for the review! We're glad to hear you enjoyed the Great Escape. I have spoken to the owner of the home and he verified that there are no restrictions on renting the home. I'm sorry the neighbor expressed that to you instead of speaking to us about their concerns. We hope you come again to the Great Escape!
50th Wedding Anniversary Week
This house was the perfect size and layout for our family's week. My husband and I celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary by renting this house and inviting our children and grandchildren to join us. There were 10 of us. The bedroom layout was perfect and each family had their own area. The game room was a hit with young and old. The backyard is truly a zoo! We saw deer, squirrels, rabbits, chipmunks, numerous types of birds, a frog, a turtle and a snake. We rented a pontoon boat from the Barkley Marina and were able to get it close enough to board it from the backyard (By the way, Barkley has brand new pontoons right now. and they are great!) We had no major issues. Any problem we had, we were able to take care of and didn't try to contact the owner during our stay. The only reason I could not give this property 5 stars is that it had a few housekeeping issues. That said, there was no problem there that would prevent me from returning.
this luxury home sits with water on both sides of backyard and a 10 acre wildlife refuge in back yard ... when you sit at the round table in the kitchen drinking your mourning coffee i'ts as if you have you own private zoo... Deer, Geese, Ducks of all types, Turkey, Squirrels, Woodpeckers, and more....certain months of the year pelicans migrate through and you see them by the thousands.. water skiing, fishing, boat riding and jet skiing are at your finger tips. full covered boat slip at community boat dock or use our guest parking at the far end of dock for overnight parking of your personal boat....
