Avoid, even if it seems cheap

  • 1 of 5

This property seems well-priced, but by the end of our stay we realized it's overpriced for what it is. It's fairly run-down, and almost every little thing about it is baffling or annoying. All of us agreed that a little more thought and investment would make this a great cabin.

One of the first annoyances was the lack of a shovel even though this is a mountain cabin with a steep driveway (we got a reply about this halfway through our stay saying it's in a crawl space none of us could find - perhaps in the locked basement?). Several lights were nonfunctional, so the central room was darker than it should have been - we ended up generally avoiding it for this reason. The linoleum floors aren't just cheap-looking, they got really slippery when snow tracked in (there is no doormat in the entrance by the hot tub). Most of us slipped, some several times. Speaking of the hot tub, it heats up verrrry slowly because it's only 110 volts. It took 18 hours to go from 90 degrees to 100 degrees, then dropped to lukewarm within 30 minutes of using it. Waste of a 75 dollar hot tub surcharge :( We were only provided with one smallish towel a person, even though the manager knew we were going to use the hot tub - WTF is the reasoning behind that? The fireplace is a LIE, it's not functional and there is no option to make it functional. The fact that the fireplace is mentioned in the description seems intentionally misleading (manager - if you're reading this, do the right thing and remove it). There is no shower curtain in one of the bathrooms, just a clear shower liner. This looks shoddy and would be unacceptable for a 1 star hotel, let alone a moderately priced vacation home. The projector area is awesome and we used it quite a bit, but it's in the brightest area of the cabin and there's no window curtain to block the sun. We had to leave our use of it to the evening.

OK, I realize that was a very negative review, but please understand the cabin unequivocally deserves it: I've stayed in well over ten vacation rentals and this ranks near or at the bottom. There isn't any single glaring issue, but everything adds up to make it a needlessly uncomfortable stay. That said, there are some good things about it. The location near NYC and mountains is nice. The kitchen was very functional and well-stocked. Projector was great. The manager was reasonably receptive to e-mails, both before and during the stay (although the security deposit took 3.5 weeks to arrive...).

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

My group stayed here for a girls weekend. Everything was awesome - the layout of the house, the hot tub, and the movie theatre. There was plenty of room for all of us to sleep, and the house was so clean. The location was perfect too. The gated community is fantastic – tennis, gym, pool, restaurant and even skiing mountain with rentals.

HUGE disappointment! !!!

  • 1 of 5

Hmmmm. Where do we begin....let's start with the musty stech upon entry, the cobwebs on the walls, to the dirt piles on the floors...not to mention the one inch of dust on the ceiling fan blades, and the dirty sponges that were left on the sink.

We came to enjoy a girls weekend to watch movies, hang out and make use of the fire place and hot tub..only to find out there is no cable, not one television, only a projection screen which is not even visible during the day due no curtains at all with several windows in the "Theater Room"....the "Fire Place" is a faux electric fire log....the ones that only light up by a flick of a switch....no flames, no warmth, no coziness.

Linens smelled freshly cleaned with bleach however they give you ONE towel per person with ZERO ACCESS to the laundry room. If you plan on staying for more than a couple of days, be prepared to live out of your suitcase as there are NO dressers available.

I would not recommend this property until the cleaning staff is replaced and meets the quality and expections of a rental. You should feel at home away from home and this was far from that experience. I would highly recommend the owner(s) to update and invest a little of their profit back into the home......it is much needed especially when your hard earned money is being spent!

Owner's Response: I am sorry you were disappointed in our vacation property. I wish you would have contacted us so we could rectify the problems you were having. The cleaning crew could have been sent to clean the property to your satisfaction shortly after you checked in. We want to make sure that the property is always in very clean condition for every guest. Therefore, we did take your advice and replaced the cleaning staff. I personally made sure that the ceiling fans are clean and the house is free of cobwebs. We, again, encourage guests to address dissatisfaction shortly after the check in. The movie theater projector will be replaced with a more modern one at the end of November 2014 and the picture will be visible at daytime. We replaced the washer and dryer; they are available for guests to be used upon request. Thank you for staying with us; we are determined to do better.

Did not meet expectations

  • 3 of 5

Rented the house for three nights to celebrate one year wedding anniversary. Pros: Nice movie room, nice living room/dining area, nice decks. Cons: iron provided but no ironing board, towels provided but no washcloths or bathmats, no dish washing detergent, no trash bags, poor lighting, house was not properly cleaned (oven and ceiling fans were dirty, cobwebs in main bathroom), CD players did not work, bathrooms greatly outdated one with severely rusted heater (which explains why no pictures are shown on site), bedrooms leave a lot to be desired, cheap, thin bed linen.

Not the best for kids

  • 3 of 5

I felt like I should post this for families with little ones. This house did not work well for us - we have four kids aged 10 - 4. There are 28 fairly steep wooden steps up to the front door and having my 4 year old up and down those every time we went out was stressful. The inside stairs are also steep and tall and the upstairs banister is only half height (weird). Also the fact that the washer and dryer are locked so you can't use them was inconvenient and strange. I have never rented a house without access to the washer and dryer before, it was unexpected. I think this is probably a fine home for adults but my little guys and our activities (think wet towels and no dryer) weren't the best fit. We did enjoy the local deer, the hot tub and the community is very nice.
