Christmas at Wildeness Cottage

  • 5 of 5
Micheal, Once again thanks for your great hospitality, we enjoyed our stay at the Wilderness Cottage. It was just as enjoyable as our stay in the Sunrise Lodge in Sept. Thanks for spending the evening with us enjoying the hot chocolate and Meghan's Christmas Cookies. It looked like Meghan, our two year old Grand Daughter, really enjoyed sharing her cookies with you. We had a great Christmas there in Evergreen and look forward to coming back. I think were falling in love with the town and it's people. It was nice to come home but we sure miss our Meghan. It's never fun in the airport saying goodbye to her and Tracy even said this time Meghan started crying as they left us. She's getting older now and she realized we were leaving her. She got an Ipad from Santa so now she can Skype with us, that's cool. Thanks again for everything and we really enjoyed decorating the Cottage with Christmas lights. It made it feel homey.

Owner's Response: Rick and Michele, it was so fun to share your families Christmas visit at the Cottage. Your Grandaughter Meghens Invitiation for me to share her cookies and Hot Chocolate was one of the highlights of my 2012 Christmas. Also Enjoyed meeting Tracey and her husband and will be sure to recognize them around town. We posted your photo of the Holiday Decorated Wilderness Cottage on the VRBO listing. Will certainly look forward to seeing you all next year and once again see how much Meghan has grown. All the best for a peaceful and Abundant New Year ... Michael

Wilderness Cottege

We recently saw the mean and nasty review written about the Wilderness Cottage.
My wife and I stayed in this cottage last fall for 5 days. It was one of the best experiences of our lives. The cabin is in the WILDERNESS and is RUSTIC, as stated on the website.
Everything was clean and orderly and the owner was absolutely available, even to the point of inviting us to come to his nearby residence. This disgruntled guest would most likely find fault in the finest 5 star hotel. For us, it was magical!

Owner's Response: Steve & Cindy we very much appreciate you taking the time to write this most gracious review and we look forward to your possible return this Fall. We see that you have just inquired about the Writers Nest for a week long stay in September. The fall is such a glorious time of year in the Colorado Rockies with the changing colors of the Quaking Aspens, warm
Days and cool crisp September evenings. Oh yes, as you may remember, your stay at The Writers Nest will put you very close to our private collection of in house, on the house, refreshments
Until then, hoping you Enjoy your summer
Sincerely Michael.

Michael, we want to thank you for the hospitality and great place to stay. The cottage had all the comforts of home. It was fabulous to see and enjoy the snow. Our pet enjoyed it also. Great hiking experience around the area! Will definitely visit again in the future.

We really enjoyed staying at the Wilderness Cabin. The owner was very accommadating to our needs and refunded our money immediately when I had to cancel a night and for our cleaning deposit. Evergreen is a great town and is easily accessible.

AVOID at All Costs.

  • 2 of 5
Wow. Where to begin...

This is the 3rd HomeAway rental my wife and I have had. The other two were phenomenal experiences. This... well... here's what happened.

Decor: Instead of nice decorations there were signs with rules and regulations on them. Everywhere you looked. We covered as much as possible with our clothing lol. Not very home-like.

Our Rental: The Cottage is marketed as a 2BR. However, upon our arrival one of the bedrooms was locked off with a sign saying, 'If your plans have changed and you now have more in your party, we will unlock this room for you' (or something to that effect). Excuse me?! Even though we wouldn't have used the other bedroom, we should still have access to it for storing our things. We rented a 2BR, not a 1BR.

Internet: Contrary to the listing, there is no Internet here. There is a sign in the cabin saying you can always go use the Internet at the Owner's office. Lovely.

Overall Shape: I mentioned every item on the list below to the owner. He didn't express any apologies or concerns about it but simply ignored the issues:

1. DVD player is broken.
2. Bathroom smelled musty and gross.
3. Broken glass in the kitchen
4. Dog hair all over one carpet, even though our dog deposit supposedly goes toward shampooing the carpets (as is stated in another sign).
5. Dust on all the blinds, lampshades and bathroom mirrors were filthy.

Windows & Ventilation:

See those big, giant windows at the front of the living room? Well, they don't open. Instead, you have a handful of small windows (1 in living room, 1 in bedroom, 1 in laundry room & 1 in kitchen) that only open 1-1.5 feet. Airflow is atrocious.

There is no screen on the main door to the cabin, so you can't keep it open at dusk otherwise bugs will be flying all over you.

Deck:

The patio furniture was disgusting. Covered in dirt. One table was broken.

Overall:

I'm SHOCKED so many people have given this rental 4-5 stars. This place was disgusting and the owner never even apologized for any of the issues I raised with him.

Seriously, avoid this place (and his other cabins) at all costs. This is NOT a home away from home. It is a rundown, filthy cabin with rules plastered everywhere instructing you what you cannot do.

Thankfully, my family is awesome so we enjoyed ourselves despite the less than pleasant 'home'.

Owner's Response: Wow Where do I Begin. First We would like to say to our prospective guests; We encourage your to read deep into our over 250 Reviews posted by our wonderful guests at our 8 Evergreen Colorado VRBO and HomeAway Listed Vacation Homes. They tell a very different story than left by this guest. Now to set the record straight.
We never received a call from this guest during his visit to request any service to adjust conditions that he claimed in this review. We are available 24/7 during our Summer season.
The DVD Player works just fine. One just needs to read the directions which tells which way to insert the DVD. We have had this player in the Cottage for 6 years and no one before ever complained that it did not work. It worked just fine when we tested before chk-in as we test every device and appliance in all of our homes prior to your arrival.
At reservation confirmation this guest was asked did he want 1 or 2 bedrooms He Said 1 bdrm would be just fine as he saw no need to pay for a 2nd bedroom being prepared. His review indicates that he had other intentions.
Hot and stuffy !! At 8 PM on the night of chk-in it was 64 Degrees F and at 7 Am the next Morning we were delivering an additional fan requested by guest e-mail.. it was 51 degrees F and the Guest had all Windows Closed. There are no Bugs at 9000 ft Elevation
I personally reviewed the residence for dust, and all other cleaning requirements prior to chk-in plus I cleaned all mirrors. This guest allegations of the Cottage being filthy and run down are totally made up and embellished. The afternoon of ck-in we had a large Mtn thunderstorm which left tree leavings and dust and dirt on the patio deck-easily swept off, yet totally rediculous to desribe as filthy. This guest left the Cottage filthy with dog leavings strewn throughout the outside grounds and dog hair from his dog on every surface in the home. We still returned in full his Housekeeping deposit.
And we are disgusted to read that this guest attacked the integrity and character of our many wonderful past guests who loved their experience at the Wilderness Cottage and left 4 and 5 star reviews. The only apology required would be from this guest for this disgusting, angry, and unwarranted review. Call me any time to discuss this or any other items as you make your Lodging decision. We look forward to your visit to the Wilderness Cottage Sincerely Michael
