Very relaxing

The great room was wonderful, the master bed was excellent. The customer support when I arrived and could not get in was very efficient and fast.

We liked the location and how big the cabin was. It was functional, but sadly not very pleasant to be in.
The property hadn't been thoroughly cleaned when we arrived; the kitchen utensils are all worn out if not completely unusable; the dining room table is so flimsy that it should be replaced and the patio had nails sticking out of the floorboards.
There was a loud fan turned on during the whole time of our stay that was impossible to turn off.
If looking for a base to put down your suitcases and just sleep, this cabin is okay (although most blankets were dusty and stained), but for a friend's or couple's getaway, I would pass.
Manager response:
Thank you for sharing your review with us, Carlen. We regret that the home was in this condition during your stay. Please know that this is not the standard grade of presentation that we provide, and that we take your feedback very seriously. Your cleanliness concerns have been addressed with the housekeeping team to ensure our standards are being met for every guest. We have also scheduled maintenance for the patio and fan. Your suggestion to replace the dining room table has been shared with the local manager for careful consideration. We hope you will allow us the opportunity to host you for a truly relaxing stay at one of our many homes in the future!

Cleanliness is average. They were no internet access, even not a wifi router as defined. I brought this issue up to multiple representative during my stay but nothing was done.

The entire cabin had a smell to it, thankfully we brought Lysol spray and wipes and cleaned everything off. There was good layer of dust throughout the cabin. Each room had old air fresheners in them that didn’t help. There was no place to hang or put clothes away. All the closets were locked and all the dressers had blankets in them. The throw pillows and blankets had old stains on them. The floor has stains all over the carpets. For what we were up there for the cabin served its purpose. We were greeted at the front door with a large raccoon by the front gate who wouldn’t budge for us to get in. The cable box and WiFi box were missing. Contacted the rental agency who put in a work order and didn’t hear from the maintenance man until over 12 hours later at almost 9pm. We purchased our own plates, utensils, and cups to use during our stay. The shower is extremely small with low water pressure and the water temperature constantly fluctuated from burning your skin off to freezing cold without adjusting the knob.

There was plenty of room for us 4. We enjoyed the private yard especially when it snowed our 2nd day.
Manager response:
Thank you for your review, John! The property manager and homeowner are planning some updates and upgrades for this home. We do hope you will come back to see them when they are completed!
Benjamin F. Feb 2021
It needs updates but for the price you can’t really complain it was a good cabin just know it does not have wifi nor cable.
Manager response:
Hi, Benjamin! We are so glad you chose to stay with us and apologize if the cable and WiFi were acting up during your visit. We are working with the homeowner on getting this addressed. Thank you!
