A blocked chimney, dusty couches, crappy kitchen equipment, and a barbecue that appears to have never been cleaned... This place is not well cleaned or maintained. Very disappointing for the high price they are asking.
Manager response:
We appreciate your feedback, Jordan The chimney has been professionally swept and cleaned. We apologize housekeeping missed the BBQ and have put a process in place to address this. Thank you!

The cabin had what we needed and was comfortable overall. It's well situated in the trees and the neighborhood is great for walks and access to recreation. Unfortunately, there were food splatters on the kitchen floor, counters, and dining table and dangerously full and burnt out stove drip pans. The bathtub had visible brown grime in it as well as some ants. It appears that the only cleaning that was done was washing and changing out towels and bedding. We spent the first day of our stay cleaning, which was disappointing. But after that, the cabin was a nice one to stay in.
Manager response:
Hi Christine, Thank you for your feedback. We apologize that some parts of the home didn't meet your standard of cleanliness. We will pass your feedback to our housekeeping team for future consideration. We hope to have another chance to impress you in the future!

After a bit of a bumpy start, we got nicely settled into the cabin. One funny fact, my dog did not like the bear near the front door (the bear with hooks near the front door) and spent the weekend growling and barking at him. All in all, we enjoyed the cabin and the location is perfect.

The house was situated in a very nice neighborhood. Love the trees and mood in this area. If your needing to recharge from a hectic life this then this is the place. Had a wonderful time relaxing in the beautiful house and setting. Will definitely come back.

I took a trip for my 60th birthday and booked this what it looks like very nice house. I went skiing all day to come back to a broken heater, They did not send someone out until almost 4 hours later.. He didn't even know how to fix it, There was no wood for a fire, Nothing to even chop wood with so we had to sleep in a 42 degree house. Tried to watch the game then none of the TVs were working. They eventually put us in another house the next day. We got an email saying this house needed maintenance work AFTER we had showed up. This house should NOT be on here to book!!!!
Manager response:
We are sorry to read you did not have a better birthday visit. The heat and TVs are now working, and we do apologize they were so difficult during your stay. We hope to have another chance to impress you in the future.

We are a family of 5. All of our sons are young adults and need their own space. This home was perfect. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook meals for our extended family. The location was great. Overall, a really great home to rent.

Only reason not a 5 is: one lower bedroom bed a little old, in winter there is no heat in one bedroom (upstairs), and maybe nice touch of leaving firestarters and wood since the wood shed Wood is unusable (wet despite she’s) still an awesome place for the awesome price
Manager response:
Thank you for telling us about your stay! We have verified the heating is working, and we do provide wood in a covered area. We hope to see you again!

It was super spacious and very cozy. The kids felt like they had plenty of room to play between the massive basement with toys and pool table, and the large family room. The deck was gorgeous at night. Will def stay here again!
