BAD hot tub, stove and dishwasher---unfriendly and indifferent owners

  • 1 of 5

We booked this house (not cabin) for a ladies wine trip. We chose it because of the hot tub. When we arrived Friday the water in the tub was below body temp. in the 80's. We turned the temperature up to 101 after two hours it was not heating up, I texted the owners twice explaining the problem - got no response.

Our second night we came back to discover we were locked out. The key they leave only opens the backdoor which has a deadbolt you can not use or you are locked out. When I called I got no answer, Gary did call back offered no apology but instead made it sound like it was my mistake. Mysteriously he had not received the hot tub messages I sent to the same number. We waited 40 minutes to be let in by Andrea - no apology at all. I explained the hot tub problem she was indifferent to the situation, "would try to get it working".

The oven smoked and smelled of chemicals. The inside of the stove and door were smoking like a cleaner had been left on-could not use it. The dish washer did not work.

I asked for a partial credit for the hot tub amenity we were unable to use but got no response.

An Amazingly peaceful retreat

  • 5 of 5

Myself and 2 friends stayed for 5 days in this great cabin backing up to Shawnee Forest. The house was great, a quaint little house with comfy beds and a fully stocked kitchen. Everything was clean and comfortable. The back deck was amazing for sitting out at night and looking at the stars. I highly recommend this location. And Andrea and Gary's recommendation for the Brickstone for dinner...best part of the trip.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for our wonderful stay. Everything was very clean. We had plenty of clean towels for the week. The extra pillows were a nice touch too. We were so happy to find the coffee that you provided because we forgot ours. The weather was mild so we enjoyed the deck and grill. Thank you for being there when we got lost on the wine trail. We will be back again.
