Overall comfortable property but would recommend a few upgrades

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful location with lots to do in the area- great hikes, beautiful waterfalls, visit to grass-fed farm, and local breweries and distilleries. If traveling with kids the Nashville zoo is a must- one of the most beautiful zoos I’ve been to. The house was comfortable and accommodated 3 small families easily. I would suggest a couple small upgrades that would make for an even more comfortable stay- specifically, add a large picnic or dining table outside, with lots more chairs. We also think you could add a small table inside...perhaps move the sectional downstairs, bring the sofa upstairs and put a kitchen table on the second floor. We made do, but The lack of a dining table was a bit of a bummer. We ended up buying a handful of camp chairs and left a couple there. Would also recommend sheets for the trundles-we ended up having to buy a couple sets (would have been good to know ahead of time, as we could’ve just brought these with us). Overall, though, the property was clean and comfortable and we had a great vacation.

Nice cabin in the woods

  • 5 of 5

We were evacuated from SW Florida for Hurricane Irma, we had quite the group with us... But the 'cabin in the woods' feel made us relax as we watched what was happening to our home towns... luckily we fared quite well and were able to return. The host was great, and responsive when we had issues or questions!

Very clean/spacious

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here! The place was honestly even nicer in person than in the photos and my first overall impression was that it was really clean! Huge plus. We had several people staying and I didn't feel overcrowded at all. The hot tub seemed new which was nice. We really enjoyed ourselves a lot. I would say however, whoever drives, use the vehicle you have that can handle a steep driveway as it sits on a tall hill.

My only constructive criticisms are that they provide more coffee mugs and chairs. We had 13 sleeping there and only 4 coffee mugs to share and re-wash. We really enjoyed the balcony and having breakfast outside but would need more than 4 chairs on each level so that everyone could enjoy eating together since this was the only real eating space other than using the coffee table inside. I think it would benefit from more seating.

Other than that, I am still waiting on my refund for my damage deposit. I was told it takes 5-7 business days for it to auto-refund. Today is the 7th day so we will see. This is my first time using Home Away, so if it is yours, too, be aware of that maybe taking some time.

"Lock box" isn't where you would find a key. You put the key code in the door to get in(would've been nice to know that in advance.) also, if you're traveling with a boat, it's rough, and somewhat scary if trying to get in and out on the winding road. Place was fun, needed to be cleaned more. There were dead grasshoppers around windows and pool table had hair and crumbs on it(no rack available.) owner is very responsive before you check in, but after that they go blank. Other than that, we had fun and enjoyed staying there.
