We had a nice stay and thoroughly enjoyed the area. The neighbors were very nice and helpful. The home and amenities are all there and the description of the property was very accurate. However the owner should do or beware of a few things that could make this place a home run for the value.
1. Main toliet seat was broken
2. The back sliding door was very difficult to open and close and some of the ladies had a very hard time with it
3.master bedroom closet door was broken and could not not be shut and made moving around the bed very hard
4. It appeared to us that the sheets were not washed in the master.
5. The refridgerator was dirty and there was food left in it.
6. bath towels were very old and rough and did not have a good smell to them (I'm being picky here) but should be aware of this issue.
These problems should have been noted by the caretaker and addressed.
We would stay there again but only if these problems are addressed. I would have rated this much different if these issues were fixed and expected to be in proper function and cleanliness.
Thank you for opening up your home for us to stay in.
Great location & very roomy
There was plenty of room for 5 of us and it was nice to be able to spread out. Our kids loved the bunk beds. :) It is a quiet neighborhood. Owner was quick to respond to our questions and very accommodating. We would stay here again. Thanks Carole!
Loved vacation - cabin ok
Though the property was a nice distance to all we wanted to do, pictures and description of location led us to believe it was a little more secluded than it was. Basically right along street with houses on both sides and most of backyard was driveway and huge shed with only 4 chairs around firepit. As far as cabin itself, it was nice and as seen in pictures, however, it does seem to need a little more attention. We were very pleased with owner’s response to inquiries and issues. Carol was very prompt in replying and gracious which we appreciated.
The first day there, handyman was there 2 hours because toilet downstairs leaked on floor (he said due to incorrect prior repair)& rug and water came up in shower when flushed, there were 5 lightbulbs out, and fireplace pilot light out. Those were things he fixed but he was unable to fix sliding door you had to fight to get open and closed to get out to deck and dribble of hot water that came out of downstairs bathroom faucet and one of showerheads. My 20-year-old daughter tried but could not sleep in queen bed upstairs because she said it smelled bad. I changed sheets to see if it would help and found that both mattress pad and clean sheet set had stains and she said still smelled. Should have newer linens considering rental fee. Also there was food left in cupboards and fridge from previous renters. For a cabin that rents for 12 people, there are not enough dishes and the cookware needs gone through to eliminate ones that are ruined. We had to buy ice as ice machine on fridge didn’t work very well. The dishwasher smelled. We put money in pinball machine downstairs but flippers don’t work. Screen also missing on bedroom window. This place has good bones and it was clean but like i said, it needs some attention for price it rents for.
The mosquitos were awful partially because grass long and while we were having breakfast on checkout day, guy comes to mow. Weird part was he spent an hour going over same areas more than once - should have taken maybe 20 min to do whole yard on rider. Had to wait until he was done to load vans. He should have waited until checkout time.
Loved this area of michigan and we had a great time, but will probably stay at hotel when we visit again.
This could be a really nice place to stay if they put a little work into fixing things i mentioned. Hate to give bad review but feel owners need to know so they don’t have problems with future renters. VRBO great - fees high
Iwas very shocked by the review but we have addressed everything plus since their stay.
As for the chairs around fire pit, I had advised them before coming that last fall a couple were damaged and I was picking up some new ones, but that they could take the ones from the deck. I have replace and there are 8 chairs around the fire pit.
The handyman came to change the lights and was told about the toilet and he fixed it and the pilot light had gone out. They were the first guest of the season. The shower head and the faucet had sand that were cleaned out.
The sliding glass door works but it too will be replaced at the end of the season. If you have troubles our handyman can stop by during the week to adjust, but have not heard of anyone else having a problem
As for the queen bed. It has been inspected and sprayed, but no one has been able to smell anything bad. I have been asking to know if I need to replace and everyone asked has said they didn’t smell anything.
All the linens are cotton and in good condition.
As for the food. We always leave the main staples, such as floor, sugar, seasonings, etc. The same with the items in the refrigerator. For the convenience of the next guest. Nothing left is “food” that was prepared and left. Things like mustard, ketchup, etc.
As for the dishes, they are Pfaltzgraff stoneware. There were 12 plates, but now 9 - I have another complete set on order. The pans are a fairly new set from this winter so not sure what the complaint was....:-(
The ice maker works just like it did when it was new. At times, a piece of ice gets stuck.
The dishwasher is a high end stainless steel tub - not sure about the smell other than they were the first to stay after a couple of months closed up.
The pinball machine was broken by a previous guest and there is no one locally to fix. After, this season, we will remove it from the house. It never took quarters so that might have been more of the problem. The machine is posted with a sign that it is out of order.
As for mowing. - there is a type of grass that needs to be gone over more than once to cut it down in the spring. We have timed mowing the lawn and it is a little over an hour job.
We don’t lack for maintaining our cabin. I’m hurt by the review because it is personal. This is our home that we have opened up to people to stay in. Homes do have maintenance issues and you don’t always know when something is going to go wr
Real cabin living
We loved the cabin it was everything they said it would be. We will be coming back again next year.
This cabin is beautiful inside and out. Very rustic and exactly what we wanted in Munising for our snowmobile trip. Very clean and all the necessities we needed. Definitely recommend and we will be back.
