GREAT!

  • 5 of 5
I rented this house for Memorial day weekend with 6 friends and we could not have had a better time! The house was amazing and did not disappoint. The pictures and description were completely accurate and the owner was extremely helpful, accomodating and could not have made the process any easier. The ammenities this property provided really made this an amazing experience--we thoroughly enjoyed the hot tub, sauna, cold plunge, pool table, ping pong table, BBQ and large screen TV. We would definitely rent this house again and were sad to have to leave.

Ok house, terrible owner

  • 1 of 5
Upon arriving out the house, we were greeted with the back door being left open, making our first few moments there a search for any animals that might have wandered into such an inviting house. Next we did a quick check of the house and noticed several broken items which we notified the owner of immedietally. The deck however in back had us a bit worried as one of the boards was popping up, then checked the hottub which we found to jot have been filled, and again contacted the owner who was not too much of a help in finding the way to turn the hose on to do so, but we figured it out after searching downstairs. We all got to experience the movie theatre a bit while waiting for the tub to fill, and the movie theatre was good to be honest. However, that does not make up for the fact of how bad the owner is, or how he stole my groups security deposit.

To make things clear, my group stayed there at the end of the September of last year. This negative review is only coming up now as we were advised by Home Away to allow the owner at least 60 days to refund the security deposit, which clearly he never has. After trying to contact hin several more times throughout December, to no avail, I am left with the impression the owner had never even had planned out refunding this security deposit to begin with. The 6 weeks leading up to my reservation date I tried getting in contact with him several times as he received all our money for the reservation however never gave me the passcode to get into the house. It was only after contacting Home Away and having them reach out to him did he ever respond. I was hoping Home Away would have the same luck regarding this security deposit, however they informed me they had attempted to contact him several times and they too were ignored. They also advised me that if for some reason something got damaged and the security deposit was to be taken, the owner would have told them so. Again this was not the case, as not only did we leave the place cleaner than when we arrived, but Home Away wasnever notified by the owner. One would imagine how upsetting it is to be ignored when a resolution is trying to be reached, but it is only made worse by the fact this man still has money that does not belong to him. I would highly advise against anyone from renting this property, and if you have already, to cancel the reservation, unless you feel comfortable risking the owner stealing your security deposit as well.

Awesome Place

  • 5 of 5
Went up here with a group of friends for Thanskgiving and had a fantastic time. The area is lovely and the house has everything. Really enjoyed the hot tub and the movie theater. The sauna is great as well. I would definitely recommend the Zen House to anyone heading up with a big group.

Fabulous Winter Getaway with Friends

  • 5 of 5
We rented the house for a three day winter break with friends. The eight of us had a great time, hanging out in the hot tub, sauna, playing pool, watching movies in the theater (and playing video games), cooking meals and just relaxing in front of the fire. The house is amazing and has everything as described. Everything was clean and easy to find. We're already thinking of going back next year. Note: If you're renting in the winter, take an AWD car, the roads are mostly snow.

Wonderful house!

  • 5 of 5
We had such a great time at the Zen House! It started snowing quickly after our arrival which made our time even more enjoyable.
The home cinema downstairs is incredible. We honestly couldn't believe it at first. It is pretty much a real cinema in your house! The lamp might need replacement but we were still able to enjoy it, and we did not spend that much time watching movies anyway...
The pool table was a really nice plus and we spent some time playing there... We also enjoyed the Hot Tub outside which is a great experience when you are surrounded by snow... And played cards or boardgame in the large livingroom the rest of the time by the fireplace, when we were not out hiking around...
Overall an incredible experience. I would definitely recommend that house and would love to come back!
