The location of the house was great! It was very quaint and a good size, plenty of parking

  • 3 of 5

We had a very enjoyable weekend getting the entire family of 10 under one roof. We couldn't ask for a better location. The only issue we had was a very big one for me, as the organizer of the gathering. We planned on staying in the house for all of our meals so we as a family could enjoy being together. Each person was responsible for a meal, all the food was brought in, but... THE OVEN DIDN'T WORK!!!!! They brought someone in to try to fix it but they were unable to get the part on short notice. The only other option we were offered was to use a charcoal grill which didn't work for our menu. VERY disappointing and wasteful. The owners didn't seem to care, no apologies or follow up were offered.

Great Location

  • 3 of 5

We loved the location, walking distance to town. Here are the reasons I only give it 3 stars. The doors to the bedroom on the main floor do not close. The first floor bedroom has 2 doors, 1 to the kitchen and 1 to the hallway and neither door closed. So it made it hard for the couple staying in that room, no privacy to even change their clothes. The shower on the main floor is extremely small. The oven didn’t work, which put a damper on our dinner. The coffee pot took 20 minutes to make an 8 cup pot of coffee. There are no lamps or lights in the dining room area. Had to eat dinner in the dark and couldn’t use the only large table to play games. Check out is 11:00am, but the owner showed up at 10:15 to clean. We felt very rushed to get out of the house. When I pointed out the things in the house that were broken and that the bedroom doors didn’t close he stated that mostly families rent so it shouldn’t matter. Even families need their privacy.

Owner's Response: Thank you Charlene for your feedback! We were able to get the oven working on Monday. We have updated and changed the instructions on the instruction sheet so that they are more clear. Heartland is a higher end oven company and requires the clock to be set for the oven to operate. Due to recent storms and electrical outage the clock was blinking. We think with the sudden cooler weather the doors had swollen and stuck because this problem had not occured before, however we did have a carpenter sand the edges to make sure. We have this week installed a light over the table in the living room making it more usable for games at night. Our housekeeper was sitting in his van a little early in the parking lot reading the paper when you came out to his van and requested he come in the house and only entered the house at your request.

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our group. Great location just 2 blocks from the main strip. We loved the wrap around porch, paintings and hardwood floors. Watch your head for ceiling lights in the bedrooms and kitchen. Thank you for letting us visit!
