First of all, my friends and I drove almost 3 hours to get here and when we finally got there, there was NO KEY! We were locked outside! It was -6 degrees, 8 oclock at night, dark, snowing. We were completely outraged. We called the owner Ela about 50x, and there was NO RESPONSE. We clearly thought this was a scam. We went to the security guard area in the front and it was closed, there was absolutely no help for us. Finally, we called a security number we found in the email thread, while we were eating out and were able to locate someone. They said they would come if we needed help and that the owner was "Out of town". We then finally found the key buried in snow next to the hot tub. I guess the previous people did not put it back where it belonged. And no one went to check the house to see if it was returned.
After all that, here are some reviews:
The house was clean, nice, small. The hot tub took a whole night and day to warm up. We got there Fri night and didn't go in the hot tub until Saturday NIGHT. Make sure someone knows how to use it. Plus - it was filled with algae. Clearly, no one had ever cleaned it before. The water pressure was horrible, even the sink clogged up from no pressure!
The downstairs bathroom shower pole was broken, so everyone used the upstairs shower. But overall, it was nice for two nights to get away, once everything started to work. Would not stay for a third night though, we had enough.
Important things to remember:
1- Could NOT reach the owner for two hours, and Never did. She never called us back and security wasn't helpful either, fortunately we found the key ourselves buried in snow. It's important to remember to get multiple contacts, such as an alternate number from the owner in case of emergency. She also did not answer a single email from any of us. We emailed her and called her multiple times.
2- Hot tub was the reason for our visit and it was FILTHY. Took a whole night and day to heat up and was absolutely dirty. AND we had to dunk water into it from the tub. We took our plastic bags, put hot water in it and poured it into the hot tub because there was not enough water in the hot tub. I think the previous people had something to do with this and again, no one went there to check it out.
3 - TV's are so old, it needed an upgrade
4 - NO water pressure
5 - Place is in the middle of NO WHERE. Grocery stores FAR.
6 - The house is open and ceilings are high, so it took a whole night for the place to heat up
Ela was a wonderful host - she made booking and accessing the property so easy and gave us wonderful tips about the area. The home is clean and well kept and we had a very enjoyable stay. Thank you so much!
This was our first summer traveling with our beautiful Standard Red Poodle. Looking for a "pet friendly" house was very difficult for me thinking that we'll be smelling the odor from other dogs that stayed there and seeing pet hair... To my big surprise this house was not only well-maintained and beautiful , it was sparkling clean!!! Beds were comfortable to sleep on and the kitchen was fully equipped with everything needed. We enjoyed taking long walks in the community with our dog and kids enjoyed swimming in the lake as well as the pool. Most of all for only $10.00 (I think ) we were enjoying paddling the boat in the gorgeous communal lake almost everyday. Eating at the local restaurants, going to the movies, shopping at the mall and visiting different farms and fairs was a lot of fun for us.
We would highly recommend this place to a friend or relative and Ela was a pleasure to deal with.
Thank You for your wonderful "Gingerbread chalet"!
Rented this for a weekend trip for my family & our 2 dogs. Beautiful & comfortable house. We had a great time.at the lake & pool. Eli was easy to reach & very helpful. Only con was no washer & dryer. However there is a laundromat & supermarket 7 miles away.
My little family and I loved this little cabin in the woods. It was so peaceful. My favorite was reading on the deck off the loft early in the morning before anyone was up. My daughter loved the community pool and the fishy pond out front! Thanks for leaving fish food for us so she could feed the fish. The highlight of her day was feeding the fish! (she's 4). My husband liked to just be able to relax and not have any chores! And my two dogs loved all the new smells on the long walks we took. They still can't figure out what kind of dogs were walking all around our cabin taunting them! (the deer). Also, thanks for the restaurant recommendations, we enjoyed Bella Mia and Trattoria 903.
Wow Lee, what a great time we had. AGAIN!!!!!! The "Gingerbread Chalet" was just as pretty as it was years ago when you first bought it. Each one of your homes are absolutely gorgeous, can't even pick which one we're gonna come to next, can't wait! Lee and the kids got 2 days of great skiing/boarding while me and Blaze hung out at the house in front of the fireplace and in the hottub!! So incredibly enjoyable!! We'll be back real soon!
