WONDERFUL GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
This is my favorite vacation spot. The cabin is modern, clean and charming. The property is a beautiful mix of forest, hiking trails and a swimmable (and fishable) pond. The property is so peaceful that you may only hear cows mooing or birds chirping. Wildlife is abundant and it is common to see deer on the property. The owners and property managers are helpful and responsive. I have had the privilege of vacationing here a number of times in the last few years. I am looking forward to my next stay.

NIGHTMARE!!!

  • 1 of 5
If ZERO stars were an option that is what we would leave, as one star is certainly not deserved. Paid in full in advance including a CLEANING FEE. The combination lock at the gate crumbled in our hands from rust. The cabin was filthy. (Before you continue reading we would like to confirm that everything written here can be verified with dated photos and emails)! Upon arrival, we were greeted with dead flies on the windowsills as well as next to dishes in cupboards. The refridgerator had mold inside and the lightswitches were covered with goop. Food particles on cupboards were growing mold. Ceiling fan had so much dust it appeared it had never been cleaned since the cabin's inception. Mildewed shower curtain. Tub stopper broken. Pantry skewed with condiments strewn across dirty shelves next to a bowl of dirty mousetraps (which my 2 year old daughter discovered). YUM! Spent most of the first day cleaning after we priorly PAID A CLEANING FEE FOR THEM TO DO THIS. Did not even bother to take a wire brush to the outdoor, gooped up grills. The land is GORGEOUS but please bring a tent if you want to stay in a clean place. I purchased pillows at a nearby walmart, as I could not trust the condition of the cabin. They accused us of having a zoo of people over due to the extra pillows we left behind as a courtesy for others to use. We called the appointed caretaker twice to assist with problems who did not return calls in a timely manner. The DVD player was not working and he told us 'we were on our own' in this matter, as he had no idea how it worked. WE PAID IN FULL IN ADVANCE and were stuck there for 10 days so decided to make the best of it and stick it out. After our stay they informed us via e-mail they would NOT be returning our cleaning deposit and accused us of inviting a zoo of people over, stealing items from the cabin, taking advantage of them, and leaving fesces behind. FORTUNATELY we took computer/time dated photos of the condition of the cabin upon arrival, as we felt it had not been accurately described and did not want problems later. Upon receipt of our photos the cleaning deposit was returned in full after priorly calling us pigs and thieves. THEY DID NOT EVEN OFFER A PARTIAL REFUND TO TRY AND FIX THE SITUATION. Terrible way to do business. Little to no integrity. Never bothered to call with an apology. Their meek apology sent via email claimed "they did not realize the cabin had not been cleaned properly"...It was highly offensive.

BEAUTIFUL

  • 4 of 5
This was our first family vacation. And the cabin was excatly as listed except for 1 thing there was no dish tv. I am so glad we brought a ton of dvd's or my kids would have been really upset. However the secnery and cabin out weighted it all. it is so beautiful and quiet. You can see every star on a clear night. I would recommend this cabin to everyone that loves the outdoors. The owners are exceptionally great. It is well worth the drive and $ for this cabin. I can not wait to go back.
