Poorly maintained &I in desperate need of updaing

  • 1 of 5

This property is advertised as a 7 bedroom home, which it is not. Based on the legal definition of a bedroom, in the real estate world, a space can be considered a bedroom if it has a door that can be closed, a window, and a closet - according to this definition, this rental is actually a 3 bedroom home (the 3 bedrooms on the main floor are the only ones that fit that definition).

Fortunately, a couple families from our group were willing to share a room (master suite) with their children, however what if there were seven couples, or 14 adults in our group? We were deceived into renting this home based on the way it is inaccurately advertised on Homeaway.com.

Problems with/in the home:

1. Upon arrival the tub in the jack and jill bath downstairs needed to be rodded. As it turns out, the tub in the bath upstairs also need to be rodded.

2. The dryer overheats and requires an extended cool down period before use. Thus making it impossible to wash anything in a timely manner.

3. There are reappearing ants on the kitchen floor by the table and windows.

4. The room in the basement has construction supplies in it, nails and hammers laying around. There is a family with two young children staying in it and this is a safety hazard.

5. The light on the ceiling fan in the living room is hanging by wires and is also an extreme safety hazard.

6. There are nail holes above many of the windows and in the walls, which are unsightly (shows a lack of general upkeep).

7. The variety of kitchen utensils is inconsistent to the number of people inhabiting the home. There are only about 8 adult forks. For a home that is advertised as sleeping 15 there needs to be at least as many forks.

8. There are only about six regular sized mugs (most of which are chipped), which will not accommodate the number of ppl in your party.

9. The upstairs fridge leaked and did not cool properly, the downstairs fridge leaked also.

10. The whole TV situation is a mess: two TV's on one box? Running to the third floor from the basement or first floor to change the tv channels is a major inconvenience. Flat screen/ TV's are so inexpensive these days that there is no reason in the world you are asking 3k a week for this house and the TV is a huge black box.

I have photos to support my argument. I have many other complaints that can't be stated due to letter maximums/space on this website.

Bottom line, look elsewhere, this place is a hole-in-the-wall!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your review. We really appreciate comments to help us improve our rental program and truly embrace open forum reviews so renters can make informed choices. We also appreciate that owners/managers can respond to insure all perspectives are understood. We have rented this home to more than 20 families since we took over management in April 2016 - including 5 families AFTER your rental. NONE of them have provided negative feedback - with many providing unsolicited positive comments. Additionally, many of the items you have stated are simply not true. Only after checkout did you send this list with 50% refund demand stating that you would post a negative review if we did comply. We have done a thorough inspection of the home and corrected any item we believe would be needed for the satisfaction of future renters - i.e the home DOES have adequate kitchen supplies - knives/forks are in two separate drawers in the kitchen and we have purchased a new dryer & fridge. However, we have not responded to your many preference requests for items like replacing all TVs to flat screens. We believe part of the joy of traveling to the area is to enjoy the country and all it has to offer. Additionally, as you know, we made three visits during your short stay - including one from the owner himself to try to resolve your many preference requests. As our multiple renters can attest, we pride ourselves on quick response when you inform us. We are truly sorry for your perception and believe it does not represent the way we run our rental program.

Awesome view! Great accomodations!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed this vacation home so much we stayed twice!

The home was clean and had everything we needed. This house is very large but still feels cozy. Offers privacy and comfort. It had something for everyone in the family. The kids loved the big TV room upstairs where they had their own space. Mom and dad enjoyed the fireplace and the fantastic view. We all loved hiking and returning home to a relaxing hot tub!

I would definitely recommend this home to my friends.

Fun w/ Family

  • 5 of 5

Stayed over President's Day weekend and had a wonderful time. This is a great place in the winter to relax, hike, watch movies, play cards and connect with family. We really enjoyed the beautiful snow that was unexpected and the black board signature wall was fun for all of us! Plenty of room with so many bedrooms and three living areas! Hoping to be back this summer and bring all the "fun toys" for the lake.....

Enjoy the View!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely love this house. It is an amazing place to relax, gather and unwind with family/friends. View is amazing for morning coffee before starting a fantastic day of boating, kayaking, hiking, swimming or exploring Daniel Boone National Forest trails, Lake Cumberland and Big South Fork River. The signature blackboard wall in the dining room was fun for all of us - great to read all the stories of those who have visited. Fire ring was just perfect for s'mores and we enjoyed the upstairs media room for "family movie nights". We rented for a week with friends & family visiting in/out throughout the week from Indiana & Ohio - plenty of room with so many bedrooms to sleep/host us all. The kids enjoyed the foosball, pool table while the adults soaked in the hot tub. We will definitely be back and plan to bring our ATVs next time with so many trails in the area......thanks so much for opening your home to us!

Stayed 3 nights with four families, total of 14.

Good:

Plenty of beds

3 floors so not crowed at all

Hot tub was great

Plenty of cookware and table service (we did bring some of are own)

Beautiful view

Good air condition

Was clean upon arrival

Close to Burnside Marina

Good washer & dryer

Good internet connection

New small grill but big enough

The not so good:

Only one flat panel TV, all the rest are small old tube type

Could use a few new matrasses

Pots don't flush well, be careful

Small kitchen for the size of the home

Small refrigerator, door shelf broke

Grass was long, should have been cut

Bottom line:

I would stay here again

Fantastic vacation/party house, excellent..

  • 5 of 5

Not sure where the other review person is coming from? but our stay this time was just as great as the very first time we stayed at this house. Everything was in order and immaculate. All the rooms are great, beds are comfortable . Hot tub was great! Our kids loved all the spaces, video game room, pool table, foosball etc.

The deck view is awesome. We will for sure go back!
