First of all, our vacation worked out really well and we enjoyed our stay immensely! The house and the pool are beautiful! Can you tell me when it is available in August? My brother would like to go.



Thanks,

Not comfortable with how things were handled...

  • 1 of 5
The house, as advertised when I originally booked, said "hot tub and heated pool”. As we wanted both of those items for our rental, we immediately were interested. I see that they have since changed the ad. But, we were very disappointed to arrive and find the hot tub was empty and the pool was going to take a long time to heat up. The house itself was generally clean, with some minor bugs and dust bunnies around.
The house lists a gas grill, which was another perk that we were much looking forward to. Unfortunately, the grill is very dirty and badly maintained to the point that it is truly a fire hazard.
However, my biggest complaint is this: We never heard anything and I was wondering what was taking so long with getting our security deposit back. I looked up the rules on HomeAway's website and they state that the owner has 14 days to return the money or let you know of any issues. At about 10pm on the 14th day (no, I'm not kidding) I received an email from one of the owners informing me that they are getting an estimate to paint the entire ceiling of the kitchen due to a red stain they were unable to remove. Why hadn’t anyone let us know earlier? The cleaning crew came in as we were leaving the property. They must have seen this right away. I soon learned that the stain on the ceiling was from a toy that my son found inside the house and had played with. The owner also informed me that they could not simply paint the spot to cover it up and the entire ceiling needed to be repainted. Having our own design/build business, we know that this was just an excuse. I asked that they try spot painting and other options like “Mr. Clean Magic Eraser”, etc. but the owner didn’t want to hear it. In fact, I quickly received a notice that the money had already been refunded to us, minus $80. We had no choice in this matter. They wanted their ceiling repainted and we were going to pay for it, no matter what.
I have rented many houses through HomeAway and various other sources. This is the first and only time that I have ever had an issue like this. We always treat the homes we rent with respect and even clean them before we leave.
This whole incident, including the way we were treated by the owners, left us with a feeling of disgust. I would caution anyone thinking of renting this property to be aware that even if they use something that is included in the contents of the house and that thing makes a small mark somewhere…you will pay for it later.

Wonderful getaway

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful week at this lovely home. The house is comfortable and very tastefully furnished. There is a good stock of family videos for evenings or any rainy days. The grounds are lovely. There isn't a lot of open space if you want to play ball, but there is a small mowed area suitable for a game of catch or frisbee. The owners were easy to reach when we had any issues. Thanks for a great stay!

Spacious, quiet, great retreat from city life

  • 4 of 5
We came here for a July 4th getaway and loved the secluded nature of the estate. There was plenty of room for the 6 of us and everything was clean and ready for our use upon arrival. We loved the heated pool, especially since it was colder on this July 4th weekend than it has been in the past. It actually was almost as warm as a sauna at some points and was the perfect way to end the day while staring at the stars. During the chilly nights, steam would rise from the pool as it came into contact with the cool air and with a color-changing orb at the end of the pool, it provided a very picturesque experience. We also made good use of the fire pit but unfortunately the new grill wasn't working properly. Some of the technology was a bit old for our liking. There was also no wi-fi or cell service but this actually turned out for the better since it really reinforced the secluded nature of the place and encouraged us city-slickers to focus more on nature and ourselves rather than our technology. The provided board games and VHS tapes were nostalgic and provided a good way to bond and reminiscence. There were plenty of utensils, plates/pots/pans, blankets, etc. for our use. However, it did seem like only the downstairs main AC unit was working and the central air did not function which may mean the house will get warm on hotter days. There were a number of smaller fans we found which sufficed given the cooler temperatures during our trip.
Overall, a very enjoyable and rustic experience with a few minor things to nitpick at but not enough to diminish the amount of fun we had. Highly recommend to all looking for a similar experience!

Great time had by all!

  • 5 of 5
Great time had as a first vacation with our blended family! Four kids ages 2-10 had fun in the pool during the day and my partner and I were able to enjoy time with the kids as well as relax outside on the patio and enjoy the fire pit and stars at night. Perfect layout for six people as there was space for everyone to play and also to eat all together in the kitchen or on the patio by the grill. The grill was great for making our own pizza which the kids loved doing and we found a great park/playground down the road in Eldred where they had mini-golf, horseshoes, shuffleboard, funnelball (all free) and we had the park to ourselves! We found Peck's market where we were able to stock up on supplies we needed for all these hungry kids, so that was handy. There was also a country store for quick trips for milk and such only a few miles away.
We would get up and eat breakfast while watching three woodchucks who would be sitting contently by the window each morning and the kids always found a toad or salamander to study before entering the pool.
We also went to Holiday Mtn fun park one day which was great fun (only 30 mins away) - bumper boats, go-carts, kiddieland for the toddler, fun slides, it was a fabulous day for all of us! The kids had a great time roasting marshmallows by the fire and running around the property with their walkie talkies.
I would also mention that there's a DVD available (since we didn't know we didn't bring any which would've been nice) and you should bring soap, shampoo, spices for cooking, oil, dishwasher detergent as none of that was on hand. Also, a flyswatter would be handy as there were flies buzzing around on the deck and sometimes in the kitchen. There is no internet so cell phone service didn't work (if you need to make a call like my partner did for a conference call, you have to drive around to get a connection) but texting did work. The kids used iPads when it rained and just played iPad games that didn't require internet connection so that was better than nothing.
Overall, a successful vacation that the kids are still talking about and they have already asked when we can go again!

secluded comfortable home with lovely pool

  • 4 of 5
Pros: Clean and spacious three bedrooms with outdoor dining table and grill, gated deck for kiddies. Good service when propane ran out, lawn and pool service are regular. Lovely outdoor pool. Well equipped kitchen and casual common areas. Jacuzzi tub in downstairs master bath. Verizon phones got signal.

Cons: Dish network but not wifi. Grill needs updating but works. Some windows do not have screens, a frustration if you don't want to resort to AC.

Very nice and enjoyable

  • 4 of 5
Overall my wife and I had a very nice time and look forward to going back. The house is secluded and the pool is wonderful. The house is VERY clean. A few things to know:

1. The towels/floor mat in the bathroom were damp and VERY hard. We were glad we brought our own.
2. There is no computer access or wifi (depending on your point of view that can be good or bad)
3. There were no lounge chairs by the pool
4. There were no tissues

I highly recommend this home.
